Dark Universe title card

This weekend, Universal will launch the start of their brand new Dark Universe monsters franchise with a reboot of The Mummy. Directed by Alex Kurtzman, the film will bring together some of our favorite classic monsters in an all new shared universe involving Universal Monsters. It will be followed up by the Bill Condon-directed Bride of Frankenstein, starring Javier Bardem; Creature of the Black Lagoon from screenwriters Jeff Pinkner and Will Beall; The Invisible Man, starring Johnny Depp; and Van Helsing, from Prometheus scribe Jon Spaihts, Arrival writer Eric Heisserer, and Dan Mazeau.

But that is just the beginning. Because Kurtzman says there are more Dark Universe films on the way. In a new interview, the man responsible for building this new Universal Monsters shared universe says Dracula, Frankenstein, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, and The Phantom of the Opera are being developed. More on the story below.

Disney In Depth: ‘The Hunchback Of Notre Dame’ (Studio Cast Recording) Soundtrack Review

The Hunchback of Notre Dame has always held a special place in my Mickey Mouse heart, as the film, celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, significantly impacted me with its musical magnitude when first premiering in 1996 – at the time I was only a four-year-old kid.

Two decades later, the release of the studio cast recording from the production (which played at two American theaters over the past couple of years) reminds listeners of why Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz have crafted some of Disney’s most gripping and diverse music. The soundtrack’s successful sales figures is indicative that people are ready to embrace Hunchback again, and this serves as a great opportunity to review the studio cast recording, available on Amazon, iTunes, and other retailers.

Disney enters the picture when you consider how many individuals set their YouTube flash mob videos to Disney music – or, in some cases, within the Disney parks themselves.

Here are eight awesome flash mob videos that will make you want to get on your feet and join in!

For many attendees of the Destination D experience, the last event was perhaps the most special, in that “An Evening with Alan Menken” touched the hearts and souls of everyone who has ever wanted to hear the master of his craft live.

Alan Menken, the composer behind the films and songs we know by heart, presented the most extraordinary two hours of music I have ever heard – and seen – in my life. Now that’s quite a statement. Some may call that a bit exaggerated, but as a devoted Disney fan, like almost all of my fellow audience members, we knew the gift we were being presented. Menken rarely performs publicly, so to hear his legendary stories and songs in person made this even more winning.

According to the trades, and interesting new project is beginning to take form for Warner Brothers.

It’s being reported that none other than Tim Burton, director of movies like Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, Big Fish, and Alice in Wonderland is helping to develop a new film adaptation of the 1831 Victor Hugo novel, The Hunchback of Notre Dame.

On top of that, Josh Brolin, star of The Goonies, Milk, No Country For Old Men, and True Grit is also helping to develop with Burton.

Brolin will also be producing and starring in the movie, though it’s unclear what role he would be playing. Burton is about to get to work on Dark Shadows with Johnny Depp, so it’s still unclear whether he’ll have the chance to direct Hunchback as well. That decision will come after the director has read a script.
