Disney To End Netflix Deal, Launch Its Own Streaming Service

Walt Disney Studios logo

Disney has a lot of properties. A lot of properties. In addition to its live-action and animation library, they also own Pixar, Marvel, and Lucasfilm. So all of those films would appear on Netflix just a few weeks after they’ve been released on Blu-ray and DVD.

But it appears that streaming Disney movies on Netflix will come to an end in 2019. The studio has announced that it will be ending its deal with Netflix, and instead will be launching its own streaming service. More on the story below.

D23 Expo 2017: Pixar’s Untitled Fantasy Set In Suburbia

It really wouldn’t be much of a D23 Expo without the animation studio making a few new announcements. One of those announcements was from Pixar. During the presentation, Pixar head John Lasseter announced an all-new original project from Dan Scanlon (Monsters University) that takes some inspiration from his life story of losing his father at an early age.

The still-untitled film is set in a modern fantasy world where magic used to be a part of life. But because it was hard to do and very complicated, the people lost interest and soon technology took its place. This world is filled with elves, trolls, and sprites, which is something you would see on the side of a 70s van, commented Scanlon. Here, unicorns are basically like rodents who run amuck and scurry across the streets.

Coco

Pixar’s Coco will attempt to chart the world of the dead. Directed by Lee Unkrich (Toy Story 3) and Adrian Molina, the movie centers on Miguel (Anthony Gonzalez), who is magically transported to the world of the undead, and joins trickster Hector (voice of Gael García Bernal) on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel’s family history.

We’ve already seen two trailers, and now the studio has previewed some brand new footage just in time for this year’s D23 Expo. So if you are already pleased by what you have seen so far, get ready to get even more excited by the footage description. Check it all out below.

D23 Expo 2017: ‘The Incredibles 2’

The Incredibles 2 is easily the most anticipated film out of the Pixar lineup. While the studio has had no problems with releasing sequels and prequels, finding the right story to tell for a new Incredibles film hasn’t been easy. But it looks like director Brad Bird has cracked the story, and now fans will get to see what the Parr family, or should I say The Incredibles, have been up to for the last 13 years give or take. Oh, and let’s not forget Frozone.

The presentation on Friday at this year’s D23 Expo first started out with a celebration of Enda Mode (Brad Bird) for all the great work she has done for superhero fashion. Check out the clip in the tweet below.

‘Cars 3’ Cast On Dreaming Big and How One Person Can Make All The Difference
eelyajekiM   |  

Cars 3

Pixar’s Cars 3 is a huge change of pace for the franchise. The film sees Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) blindsided when a new generation of faster, more powerful, and younger racers join the racing circuit. Determined to stay in the sport that he loves, Lightning goes through a new-age training regiment with the help of Cruz Ramirez (Cristela Alonzo), an eager young technician who has her own plans for winning. And while they might not agree on which training method works, they discover they need each other to reach their goals more than they realized.

We were fortunate enough to attend the press day of Pixar’s latest animated film where the attendees talked about who inspires them, some of their personal struggles, how one person can make the difference, and more. Check out what they had so say here below.

Movie Review: Cars 3
eelyajekiM   |  

Cars 3

Cars 3
Director: Brian Fee
Screenwriters: Kiel Murray, Bob Peterson, Mike Rich
Cast: Owen Wilson, Cristela Alonzo, Armie Hammer, Larry the Cable Guy, Bonnie Hunt, Nathan Fillion, Kerry Washington, Lea DeLaria
Distributor: Walt Disney Pictures
Rated PG| 109 Minutes
Release Date: June 16, 2017

One of the things that continues to impress me about Pixar’s Cars franchise is its resiliency and heart. Though it is considered to be one of Pixar’s weakest franchises, it managed to become a trilogy. It may not resonate as much with fans as some other Pixar films do, but Cars has continually shown that it has what it takes to be great. Even if it that means it needed to take two “very safe” films to get there. So Cars 3 doesn’t take any huge risks, it takes an unconventional approach to possibly ending Lightning McQueen’s (Owen Wilson) story.

While that is a bit refreshing for the franchise, it does come with its own set of issues and concerns. All of it depends on how you look at it. Check out my full review below.

Check Out The Honest Trailer For ‘Cars’ / ‘Cars 2’

Honest Trailer Cars Cars 2

With Pixar trying to ring the cash register again with Cars 3 next week, the gang at Screen Junkies decided to tackle the original 2006 film for their Honest Trailer. Solely based on the strength of the name Pixar, this movie somehow earned over $460 million worldwide. In full disclosure, I never saw Cars and never cared to. This was during the time where my younger sister was too old for kids movies, and I was yet to have kids so animation was kinda dead to me as a moviegoer. And when Cars 2 came out in 2011, all I ever heard about that one was, “it’s the worst Pixar movie ever.” Anyway, because… apparently someone demanded it, we’re getting a trilogy. So sit back and watch as narrator Jon Bailey shreds some of the lesser material in the Pixar catalog.

Check out the Honest Trailer below.

Pixar's Coco

The full list of voice talents for Disney•Pixar’s Coco has been revealed. The film, which has a strong emphasis on family ties and draws inspiration from Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), will follow a young boy who dreams of becoming like his late musical idol. Director Lee Unkrich says it was important for the film to have an all-Latino cast, and searched for the talent from Mexico and from Los Angeles. So the film is an appropriate reflection of the characters in the film.

Now he’s found that perfect cast. Find out more about them and the characters they play, plus what Unkrich and co-director Adrian Molina had to say about the film and a new poster, below.

Watch: New ‘Cars 3’ Trailer “Rivalry”
The Movie God   |  

Cars 3

We just saw a trailer for Pixar’s trilogy-maker Cars 3 a couple of weeks back, but a new trailer has been released this week.

The new trailer is titled “Rivalry,” and you can probably guess what it focuses on. It opens with the voice of the late, great Paul Newman, who voiced Doc Hudson in the original movie—the final character he ever played. Pixar had voice over he recorded for the first movie that was never used, so we’ll be hearing new stuff from Doc in the movie, likely in flashbacks or dream sequences of some sort. The trailer then shifts to Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) and the seemingly unbeatable racing star he’s up against, Jackson Storm (Armie Hammer).

Check out the latest trailer for Cars 3 below.
