The live-action adaptation of Maleficent, the Angelina Jolie-starring vehicle, was one of the first of many films to go from animation to live-action. And since its release, the studio has been working on getting a sequel off the ground.

Now that is happening. Production for Maleficent II has started, and there are a couple of new casting announcements. The first is that Michelle Pfeiffer will be joining Jolie and Elle Fanning, both of whom are reprising their respective roles. More on the story below.

Marvel Doctor Strange

Marvel Studios likes to announce sequels to their movies before or after a film’s release. Whenever it’s the former, it’s because the film is tracking well or got a very warm reception from critics who saw it early. Whenever it’s the latter, it’s because the film did really well at the box office. But it’s different for Doctor Strange. While the film did well at the box office, it wasn’t one of the studio’s best efforts. That doesn’t mean it doesn’t get a sequel, but the fact that it was so successful and the studio hasn’t announced one yet is, well, strange.

Now Doctor Strange screenwriter C. Robert Cargill is talking a little bit about the sequel and his plans for what we could see in it, including the villains and more. See what he had to say below.

The Lion King

Jon Favreau‘s The Lion King is already being hailed as one of the most anticipated films of 2019. We saw a small snippet of the live-action take of the animated opening sequence at D23, which pretty much tells us that this will be a visually stunning film. But that was just the beginning.

One of the biggest rumors going around earlier on in the casting process was that Beyoncé Knowles-Carter was going to play Nala. Well, you can put that rumor to rest, as the actress and singer has been confirmed to play her. Along with confirming Beyoncé Disney has also confirmed the rest of the full cast, which can be found below.

Doctor Strange

Directed by Scott Derrickson
Starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Benedict Wong, Mads Mikkelsen, Tilda Swinton
Disney Home Entertainment
Release date: February 28, 2017

Back in November, I got to see Marvel’s Doctor Strange at a special advanced Dolby Cinema screening. I have to say, that was an incredible way to see a film like this. But as I left the theater blown away by both the film and the theatrical experience, I was like, “I can’t wait to watch this again in Blu-ray.” Then I sent an email to the other GoD writers saying, “No one dare even think of requesting Doctor Strange, that one is mine!”

So, basically, after one viewing I loved the movie and already knew I’d be excited to watch it on Blu-ray in the comfort of my own home, and to also check out the bonus features. And here we are, several months later with me now in possession of a “Cinematic Universe Edition” Blu-ray review copy, complete with lenticular cover insert, after having left no one else on staff standing. (Yes, I’m a brutal conquerer and dictator!) Right away, I was like, there’d better be feature-length audio commentary on this thing! And, yes, director Scott Derrickson did provide this for the Blu-ray Edition, so he’s safe.

10 Things We Learned From The Stars Of Marvel’s ‘Doctor Strange’

Marvel Doctor Strange

Doctor Strange is the 14th film of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Based on the 1963 comic book character of the same name that debuted in Strange Tales, the film follows Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) as he goes from brilliant but egotistic neurosurgeon to a man with nothing but a pair of crushed hands suffered in a car accident. Strange uses his last bit of money and travels to find The Ancient One (Tilda Swinton) who resides in Kamar-Taj. It is there where he learns what it takes to become the Sorcerer Supreme.

We were fortunate enough to sit down recently with a group of our fellow journalists to talk to the cast, director Scott Derrickson, and Marvel Studios’ president Kevin Feige about the film, how they made hand choreography look like magic, their geek-out moments, and what it was like to work with each other. Check out the top 10 things they said at the press conference here below.
