Toy Story 4

The Toy Story 4 marketing campaign has been mostly small animated vignettes that consist of Woody (Tom Hanks) and Buzz (Tim Allen) in a variety of scenarios. Whether that’s holding hands in a friendship circle, correcting carnival prizes on how to say Buzz’s catchphrase correctly, or seeing a small town fair for the first time, it was clear that Pixar wanted to bring the toys back to the big screen.

And now, we are getting to see what kind of new adventure they will be on in an all-new trailer for the film. Check it out below.

The Little Mermaid

The Little Mermaid
4k Ultra HD | Blu-ray

Writer: Ron Clements, John Musker

Distributor: Walt Disney Pictures
Rated G | Minutes: 83
Release Date: February 26, 2019

Though hand-drawn animation may not be as common in movies as it once was before the days of Pixar, it is still a process that anyone can appreciate. And Disney’s The Little Mermaid reminds us about how the medium, along with a wonderful story, can work together in tandem to deliver a very entertaining effort.

As one of the films that helped launch the Disney Renaissance, 1989’s The Little Mermaid still has a story that resonates with its young audience today about a free-spirited young mermaid who wants to break free from her father, King Trident. Though he wants the best for her, she finds herself wanting more than being under the sea as she falls in love with Prince Eric, a dashing young human mariner.

In an attempt to be the one with she loves, Ariel signs a contract with Ursula, an evil sea witch, and in exchange for her voice, she is able to walk amongst the surface dwellers and has only 72 hours to get Eric to kiss her so she will regain her voice and make the change permanent. Check out the full review of the newly released 4k Ultra HD edition here below.

What If Marvel

Almost every Marvel fan has had a “What if?” crossover thought run through their mind. This reached its peak during the success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe when X-Men and Fantastic Four were over at Fox, and Spider-Man was at Sony. The latter did find its way over eventually; and with Disney acquiring Fox, the former has become a reality. But even with most of the Marvel characters – Sony still has the rights to Spider-Man supporting characters and villains – under one umbrella, some characters have yet to interact with each other.

That’s where What If? comes in. For those who have been wondering what if Spider-Man joined the Fantastic Four, or what if Captain America did not disappear during World War II, then your questions will be answered in a new animated TV series set to stream on Disney+ based on those comic book titles. More on the report below.

Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Men Tell No Tales

Disney was all set to sail the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise to a new horizon without the pricey Johnny Depp in tow. They first brought in Deadpool writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick to pen a brand new script that would have rebooted the series.

Disney’s live-action production president Sean Bailey described the script as a “kick in the pants.” But now it looks like the film isn’t happening at all as Reese and Wernick are off of the project. More on the report below.
