Aline Brosh McKenna, who also wrote the script for the upcoming Kenneth Branagh-directed adaptation of Cinderella, has been hired to write the script for the movie, though at this time all story details are being kept under wraps. First created in Dodie Smith's 1956 novel "The Hundred and One Dalmatians," Cruella de Vil is a fashion-obsessed woman who will do just about anything to get a fur coat made out of dalmatian fur.
Based on a Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale and coming from the same people who brought you Tangled and a bunch of other classic princess stories, Frozen ought to be a gorgeously animated heartfelt holiday-season musical with enough depth that adults can enjoy it. I'm guessing that's still true even though this new trailer, which debuted at Yahoo!, and seems determined to smooth out any rough edges the film might have in favor of snowman gags, broad adventure and as much table-setting plot development as possible
It’s worth noting he had to sign a non-disclosure agreement where he swore not to talk about Tomorrowland or anything about the plot, characters, or the screenplay. However, Inman is pretty sure he isn’t breaking any rules because their conversation had nearly nothing to do with the film itself. As he said, “I read the NDA like ten times and I’m 92.4% sure I’m in the clear here.”
Said Walt Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn, "This is about a long-term relationship with lots of pluses and minuses. The Lone Ranger certainly didn't help things, but we all have our wins and our losses, and this is an overall thing related to the company's supply of projects from all these other places."
Its story centers on sisters Anna and Elsa. The latter has mystical powers that allow her to control ice and snow, but when she accidently unveils them in public she is forced to run away to the mountains. Unexpectedly, Elsa’s departure plummets the kingdom into an endless winter. To bring about spring, the underestimated Anna goes on a quest to recover Elsa, and finds help from rugged mountain man Kristoff and the goofy Olaf.
While the latest edition will be available on DVD, Disney is really pushing the HD Digital and Blu-ray copies of the film, and with good reason. The December 10 release will mark the first time the film has hit Blu-ray, and the first big release of the movie since Disney put together the 45th Anniversary Edition on DVD just a few years ago (Likely due to rarity, those copies run pretty expensively).
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.
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?
It's bizarre to see news that Harvey Weinstein is teaming up with Disney for a project, and a children's book adaptation at that. And apparently no one is more surprised than Harvey Weinstein. In a press release that announced that Weinstein and Disney would be collaborating on an adaptation of the children's book Artemis Fowl, the head of the Weinstein Company was up front about how strange it all seemed
You’d think this would be all about looking at Cage wearing women’s clothing – or in the case of The Little Mermaid's Ariel, a bra and tail – but it’s really all about picturing him within the situations that the films put their heroines through.
Don't cry for Disney. Thanks to the wild success of their first three releases of 2013, they've become the first studio this year to gross a billion dollars at the domestic box office. And just think how much more they are making in merchandizing.
When you're Disney, you've pretty much already got a monopoly on childhood imagination, creating iconic versions of enough fairy tales and inventing enough characters of your own to fill millions of daycare toy chests. But the movie industry pauses for no man, not even Walt Disney's cryogenically frozen head, and at some point you've got to keep making new movies to entertain new generations… even though they're not always going to live up to the old ones
Here's something you don't see very often. The Walt Disney Company suffered a major bomb over the weekend, opening The Lone Ranger to a pitiful $48 million 5-day box office, forcing the studio to lose an anticipated $150 million on the big-budget Western. But if you're a Disney stockholder, things are still looking up. According to Variety the studio's stock is up 1.3%. Why? You probably already know the answer: Star Wars
For the last 90 years the Walt Disney Company has been arguably the greatest source of family-friendly entertainment available anywhere in the world. But that family-friendly image has a dark side in the internet age, as it doesn't take long to Photoshop a funny image from a Disney title that completely upends the company's wholesome image.
Analysts say that by the end of The Lone Ranger's run it will likely only manage to make $125 million domestically and $150 million overseas - for a total of only $275 million. It will likely be the second triple-digit loss for Disney in as many years, as the company had to deal with the $200 million loss of Andrew Stanton's John Carter in 2012.
