BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
We haven't heard too much about Pixar's upcoming Finding Dory, but the animation studio just revealed a crazy collection of new characters who will figure into the story of Ellen DeGeneres' daft but sweet amnesiac fish.
It was back in April that Dwayne Johnson revealed that he would be joining the amazing world of Walt Disney Animated movies. It was officially confirmed that the A-lister would be joining the cast of Moana, playing the role of Maui… but what wasn’t said at the time was exactly what we could expect from the character.
Disney’s D23 Expo is in full swing in Anaheim and whether you love Disney, or just all the things they own, there’s lots of cool stuff going on. It’s not all Marvel and Star Wars though. If you’re a fan of classic Disney animation, there’s plenty for you too.
Twice now in a four-week span, Walt Disney Studios has had opportunities to ease the minds of Star Wars fans around the globe by revealing even the slightest inkling of information regarding J.J. Abrams’ Episode VII: The As-Yet-Unnamed Sequel. And twice, the studio opted to remain silent.
Earlier this morning the bi-annual Disney convention had its big live-action film presentation in the arena of the Anaheim Convention Center, and during the Marvel Studios portion of the event they showed off exclusive new clips from both the upcoming Thor and Captain America sequels.
Walt Disney Studios has many exciting and anticipated titles in the pipeline for us, and have promised that we will be getting an exclusive sneak peek at Saving Mr. Banks, Thor: The Dark World, Muppets Most Wanted, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Maleficent and Tomorrowland.
Walt Disney Animation, the unit that's recently brought us the likes of Wreck-It Ralph and Tangled, has announced its next big animated project… and it sounds stranger than anything the studio has done since, uh, Treasure Planet maybe?
The news from today's D23 presentation by Walt Disney Animation and Pixar about the voice cast for The Good Dinosaur was exciting, sure, but it wasn't enough to eclipse the buzz for another new, original Pixar movie, Inside Out
In 1937, Walt Disney Studios did something truly spectacular that changed the world of entertainment forever. In adapting the Grimm fairytale Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs as a movie they created the first full-length cel animated feature film ever made. In the 76 years since, the studio has grown and developed with the times, and today we’ll be celebrating both that legacy and the near future in the Anaheim Convention Center arena.
ComingSoon has the photos of crates on location in Anaheim that are teasing … something Star Wars related. As the site points out, Star Wars: Episode VI: Return of the Jedi once worked under the subtitle Blue Harvest back in the day, so there’s a thematic continuation at play as J.J. Abrams fires fans up for Episode VII.
We expect this year to be just as exciting, and Star Wars is a big reason for that. But what exactly will they announce? Will they bring out Hamill, Ford and Fisher as rumored? Might they announce the latest sequel's title? Is it possible that they could even give us a basic plot synopsis? We'll just have to see when the event gets running on August 9th.
“I don’t know how much I can say on that one except it’s a really cool role that I can’t wait for people to see, but I’m sure it’s at least two years out, maybe a year and a half at best,” Tudyk said. So, what does Pixar have on their 2013 schedule? Tudyk could be talking about the Monsters prequel, Monsters University, or the untitled dinosaur or brain features Pixar teased at D23
Yesterday, as part of the “Inside The Walt Disney Studios” presentation, director Rich Moore talked a bit about the plot of the movie and gave a few details about how everything works and who the characters are. The movie centers on a character named Wreck It Ralph, who is a building-smashing bad guy from an 8-bit game “Fix It Felix Jr.”
With director Andrew Stanton and stars Taylor Kitsch, Willem Dafoe, and Lynn Collins on stage, the audience in the Anaheim Convention Center was privy to a four clips from the upcoming epic based on the books by Edgar Rice Burroughs. Check out the recap inside.
If you’ve seen the first trailer for Pixar’s Brave, you already know how absolutely incredible the film looks. A period piece set in medieval Scotland, the animation looks unlike anything we’ve ever seen from the elite studio before and today at the D23 Expo they showed plenty of new footage.
Monsters University, the prequel to 2001’s Monsters, Inc. is still very much in the early development stages and isn’t scheduled to be released until the summer of 2013, but today the crowds in the arena at the D23 Expo got a sneak peek at the upcoming Pixar sequel.
There are few projects being released this fall that are as highly anticipated as The Muppets. The first time the Jim Henson creations have been on the big screen in more than a decade, the movie should be pure joy for kids and adults alike and today, during the D23 “Inside the Walt Disney Studios” presentation, we got our first extended look at the new film.
The first D23, which was held back in the summer of 2009, was held just a few weeks early. After the expo news broke that the Walt Disney Company had made a deal with Marvel Comics that would see all of the upcoming Marvel Studio films after Captain America: The First Avenger fall under the Disney umbrella.
During Pixar’s Saturday panel at D23 Expo 2011, the animation studio revealed details on two planned features. The first announced feature, currently operating under the tongue-in-cheek title of The Untitled Pixar Movie About Dinosaurs, will be directed by Bob Peterson. The second feature, still in its earliest stage, was referenced as The Untitled Pixar Movie That Takes You Inside The Mind.
Just as I did in late July during Comic Con, my first stop in the convention center was the exhibition hall, and while touring around the massive place I decided to take photos of all the cool stuff I saw. Check out some select shots (including the Wreck It Ralph logo, a display for The Muppets, and Walt Disney's limo) and the full gallery inside
