RAYA AND THE LAST DRAGON

When we first reported that Moana producer Osnat Shurer would be teaming up with Crazy Rich Asians writer Adele Lim for an animated feature that would have Asian elements running through it and a female protagonist, I was very excited. And now I am even more pumped for it after learning more about this upcoming Walt Disney Animation Studios feature on Saturday at the D23 Expo. See more below for our on-site coverage from D23.

Pixar's Soul

My recent trip to Pixar was not only exciting, it was also inspirational. The studio keeps coming up with innovative ways to tell these stories in bold new ways. One of those films will be Soul, from director and new Chief Creative Officer at Pixar Animation Studios Pete Docter.

Docter was on hand to present a little bit about the film to a full house on Saturday at the D23 Expo. And based on what he was able to share, this will be one of Pixar’s most cerebral films to date. See more below for our on-site coverage from D23.

Disney Pixar Onward

I was initially skeptical about how Disney-Pixar’s Onward could work. The film centered on two brothers who go on a journey to find out if magic still exists. However, when director Dan Scanlon and producer Kori Rae shared another look at the film today at the D23 Expo, it really gave me hope that it was going to be much more than that. See more below for our on-site coverage from D23.

Frozen 2 Anna Elisa Queen Iduna flashback

Disney’s D23 Expo tends to close out its studio panel in a very big way, and they did that by giving attendees a first look today at some scenes from Frozen 2. A sequel to 2013’s massively successful Frozen, the animated film continues the adventures of Anna (Kristen Bell) and Elsa (Idina Menzel), who journey with their friends Olaf (Josh Gad), Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), and Sven (also Groff) outside of the comfort of the kingdom of Arendelle, to discover the truth about Elsa’s powers and what happened to their parents. Along the way, they will discover where Anna and Elsa’s parents were going and that the past isn’t what it appears to be. See more below for our on-site coverage from D23.

D23 Expo 2019: Emma Stone Will Bring Punk Rock Vibes To Disney’s Live-Action Film ‘Cruella’

Cruella starring Emma Stone

Disney will be continuing their course to release more live-action adaptations of their animated classics as long as they are box office successes. But bringing 101 Dalmatians’ character Cruella De Vil to the big screen in a live-action feature might take a different approach to some of the previous films. Like with Maleficent, Cruella will center on the titular character’s evil journey. The upcoming live-action movie will star Emma Stone as Cruella, a diva and practitioner of cruelty to animals.

Although Stone couldn’t be at the D23 Expo this weekend, attendees were treated to a first look at Stone as Cruella. See more below for our on-site coverage from D23.

Jungle Cruise Starring Emily Blunt and Dwayne Johnson

Based on the popular Disneyland ride that could be found in all Disney theme parks across the globe, the Jungle Cruise will be in theaters in 2020. Though production for the film wrapped last year, director Jaume Collet-Serra has been putting the finishing touches on the film to help it get ready for its summer release. And since this was our very first look at the film, it had to be introduced in a very special way at this weekend’s D23 Expo.

Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt were both on hand at the convention to talk about the upcoming film, which takes some inspiration from The African Queen starring Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn. See more below for our on-site coverage from D23.

Black Widow title card

After making her debut in 2010’s Iron Man 2, Scarlett Johansson‘s Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow finally makes her standalone film debut in Black Widow. Taking place after the events of Captain America: Civil War, the long-awaited film sees Natasha returning home and being met with a very unfriendly welcome. However, there is much more to it than that, as her return home also marks a family reunion of sorts.

While the cast was not on hand at the D23 Expo this weekend, Marvel Studios did share some interesting footage from the film. More on all of that here below.

D23 Expo 2019: ‘Mulan’ Promises To Be A Large-Scale Live-Action Epic With A Touch Of Disney Magic

Mulan

Mulan is considered to be one of Walt Disney Animation Studios’ crown jewels and given Disney’s success with their live-action adaptations of their animated classics, it only makes sense that they look towards turning 1998’s Mulan into a live-action film. However, instead of following in the footsteps of other films that merely retell the original story, like Cinderella and Beauty and The Beast, Mulan will be depicted as a large-scale epic that sees the titular character (played by Liu Yifei) do anything to protect the family that she loves, even if it means disguising herself as a man so that her ailing father does not have to go to war.

Check out our coverage of the film from this weekend’s D23 Expo here below.

The Eternals Title card

Marvel Studios’ The Eternals promises to be a cosmic comic book movie of epic proportions. Of course, with a film that touts a cast of Angelina Jolie, Kumail Nanjiani, Richard Madden, Ma Dong-seok (aka Don Lee), Lauren Ridloff, Brian Tyree Henry, Salma Hayek, and Lia McHugh.

While at the D23 Expo today, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige announced a few more surprising additions to the cast. Joining the aforementioned cast will be Barry Keoghan as Druig and Gemma Chan as Sersi. But the biggest surprise of them all is Kit Harington joining the cast as a non-Eternal Dane Whitman. Cast members also appear at the panel in front of concept art of them in their costumes, which you can see here below.
