eelyajekiM   |  

Pitch Perfect 2 starring Anna Kendrick

Christmas is finally behind us, and so are all the holiday-centric movies. So it wouldn’t be much of a November or December release without a movie involving Christmas or Santa Clause. And it looks like we will be getting one of those from Disney soon, with none other than Anna Kendrick starring as the daughter of Santa Claus.

The currently untitled Disney Santa Claus movie, under the working title Nicole, comes from Miss Congeniality scribe Marc Lawrence, who will also direct. Kendrick is in talks to play Santa Claus’s daughter who is forced to take over the family business after her father decides to retire and her brother gets cold feet on the big night. More on the story below.

Cast: Bryce Dallas Howard, Oakes Fegley, Wes Bentley, Karl Urban, Oona Laurence, Robert Redford
Distributor: Walt Disney Studios
Rated PG | 103 Minutes
Release Date: November 29, 2016

This year’s Pete’s Dragon comes off the heels of Disney’s recent live-action adaptation successes like Maleficent, Cinderella, and The Jungle Book. While the original film was never as popular as some of these remakes, it has gained a cult following and David Lowery’s reimagining resonated with critics. Now, the film is available for you to own for your home entertainment pleasure on Blu-ray/DVD or Digital Download.

In this reimagining, a 10-year-old boy orphaned boy named Pete (Oakes Fegley) is discovered living in the woods, and he claims to have been there with his friend Elliot, a giant green dragon. A local park ranger named Grace (Bryce Dallas Howard) takes him in, while trying to discover the truth about Pete’s situation. While his story seems far-fetched, Grace’s dad (Robert Redford) has been telling the tale of a mythical dragon in the woods for decades. Meanwhile, Elliot goes looking for Pete, only to come up against Karl Urban’s crew of lumberjacks, who are on the hunt for the dragon.

Lin-Manuel Miranda On Creating The Music For ‘Moana’ and Finding Dwayne Johnson’s Vocal Range
eelyajekiM   |  

Moana

Music was a huge part of making Moana great, and none of that would have been accomplished without the collaboration of Grammy-award winner Opetaia Foa’i, Disney alum Mark Mancina, and (soon to be) EGOT Lin-Manuel Miranda. Each one of them brought in their own personalities to the film, with Foa’i bringing the music of the Polynesian culture, Mancina with his Disney experience, and Miranda, who really needs no reference unless you haven’t heard of the Tony Award-winning Hamilton. The songs are a celebration of culture and finding one’s identity, and they are so much fun that they don’t feel overly preachy.

We were recently invited to sit down with our fellow journalists to talk to Miranda and Foa’i about the music of Disney Moana, their inspiration, working together, and discovering Dwayne Johnson’s vocal range. Check out all of that below.

Disney’s ‘Moana’: Dwayne Johnson & Auli’i Cravalho On The Spirit Of Aloha
eelyajekiM   |  

MOANA

Dwyane Johnson stars as Maui, a boisterous demi-god who is a trickster and can morph into any animal he chooses, in Disney’s latest animated feature Moana. While the character can let some of his godly acts and heroism feed his ego, it is Moana (voice of Auli’i Cravalho), the 16-year-old daughter of a chief, who teaches him a lesson in modesty and helps him find his lost identity as she searches for her own. Together, they voyage across the ocean to return the Heart of Tefiti to its rightful place in hopes that it will restore all life to what it once was.

We were recently invited to sit down with fellow journalists at the press conference for the film, where Johnson and Cravalho talked about bringing the spirit of Aloha to Moana and what it meant for them to share their Polynesian culture with the world. Check out what they had to say below.

In the weeks leading up to the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, we will probably hear a lot more about the other spinoffs that take place within the same universe. While Disney and Lucasfilm had planned on alternating between the saga films and spinoffs every year, the only other spinoff what we know about is that of the untitled Han Solo film that is set to begin production early next year.

The film will focus on a younger Solo (Alden Ehrenreich) and Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover) in the years before we first met them in the original Star Wars trilogy. While there isn’t a definitive plot synopsis, producer Kathleen Kennedy dropped a few hints that tell us more about the film’s tone. According to her, the spinoff will have a heist or western type feel to it. More on the story below.

Pixar’s Cars film franchise hasn’t been the most popular with critics, but it is one of the most lucrative.

Check out the latest teaser trailer for the film here below.
