The Little Mermaid

Disney is not going to stop with the live-action adaptations of their animated classics. Not as long as films like Cinderella, The Jungle Book, and Beauty and the Beast keep making the box office gold that they are making. With films like Dumbo, Aladdin, Mulan, and The Lion King currently in the works, the studio is continuing to go through their vault of award-winning animated films and pairing them with an almost perfect creative team. Case in point, The Little Mermaid, which will have new songs by Hamilton‘s Lin-Manuel Miranda and Alan Menken.

We reported on the film when it first broke in August of last year, and now there are new reports saying that the live-action film is looking to land Rob Marshall as director. More on the story below.

Avengers and X-Men

When there was word that Disney was entertaining the idea of buying out the 20th Century Fox film and TV properties, fans got excited at the idea that X-Men and Fantastic Four could finally come into the MCU fold. Avatar land made more sense, too. And the idea that Disney could possibly release more mature material under the Fox banner became a possibility. But as soon as that news broke, the deal was off.

Now it appears that the deal may not be as dead as we first thought. There are reports that X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner is becoming one of the key players to make this deal happen. More on the story below.

Crystal Liu Cast As Mulan

Disney has reinvigorated their live-action division by taking some of their classic animated titles and turning them into live-action films. It’s a model that has proven to be very lucrative for the franchise as they release one hit after another, with their most recent hit, Beauty and the Beast grossing $1.2 billion worldwide. The studio is well into the development of live-action adaptations like Aladdin, Dumbo, and Mulan, which has now found its lead star.

According to new reports, Chinese actress Liu Yifei, also known as Crystal Liu, will play Mulan in the live-action adaptation set to be directed by Niki Caro. More on the story below.

Snoke Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Supreme Leader Snoke (Andy Serkis) is a powerful figure in the current Star Wars saga without having to display much power at all. When we first saw him in The Force Awakens, he was all but a holographic figure that displayed him as a scarred man dropped in a robe. General Hux (Domhnall Gleeson) and Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) often consulted with him to figure out their next plan of attack.

While he was larger than life as a hologram, new images have shown him to be real and very imposing. And now, we’re learning just how powerful he really is and why the man looks so tortured. Check out the full story and the images below.

Pixar Coco

Coco
Director: Lee Unkrich, Adrian Molina
Screenwriter: Adrian Molina, Matthew Aldrich
Cast: Anthony Gonzalez, Gael García Bernal, Benjamin Bratt, Renée Victor, Ana Ofelia Murguia, Alanna Ubach, Jaime Camil, Sofía Espinosa, Edward James Olmos
Distributor: Walt Disney Studios
Rated PG | 109
Release Date: November 22, 2017

From the moment the music starts, Pixar is telling its audiences that they are in for something new, something inspiring, and culturally beautiful. That doesn’t even really begin to describe what a wonderful film Coco is, but by the time the end credits are finished, it will be hard not to notice how many tears have already been shed. Pixar’s latest animated film is a profoundly beautiful celebration of culture, family, and music, which is very important at a time when politics have painted the subjects as criminals. Here we see characters of Mexican heritage, and even though the film is animated and the setting is fictional, everything about it feels entirely human. Check out the full review of Coco here below.

A WRINKLE IN TIME

Ava DuVerney‘s A Wrinkle In Time is already promising to be one of the most anticipated films of 2018. It touts a stellar cast and gives a visionary director the keys to an acclaimed novel that takes audiences through time and space. The first trailer was just a mere peek at the film’s epic scope. In it we got a look at the juxtaposition between the film’s real-world and the out of this world sci-fi feel. Now, Disney has released a new trailer that tells us just how massive this world really is and the wild fantasy adventure audiences are about to embark on. Check out the latest trailer for the film here below, along with the movie poster and images.

Star Wars The Last Jedi Finn vs Captain Phasma

Recent Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailers have been vague on the details of the plot of Rian Johnson’s latest film. Though we got a sense that Rey (Daisy Ridley) was on her way to becoming a Jedi, despite Luke Skywalker’s (Mark Hamill) reluctance and general pessimistic outlook for the Jedi Order, Finn (John Boyega) and Poe (Oscar Issac) journeys were just beginning. Now with the release of the film less than a month away, we can expect to see more from Star Wars: The Last Jedi in the form of TV spots. Just don’t expect them to reveal anything too spoilery. Even the TV spots are keeping some of the characters in the dark, as the latest one has Finn asking Poe what happened to Rey.

Star Wars The Last Jedi Kylo Ren

We are less than a month away from the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and you can be sure that fans are on the edge of their seats waiting to see what will happen to Rey (Daisy Ridley) and if this will truly be the end for the Jedi Order. While the teaser, trailer, and a few TV spots have given us an exciting look at the action, they’ve kept fans in the dark when it comes to releasing major plot points and major surprises.

Of course, nearly every Star Wars film is one of the most anticipated films of the year, wanting to know more about it before its release is just par for the course. And now, we will get to know a little more about the upcoming sequel with a handful of new images that detail these characters’ journeys towards their destiny. Check out the gallery and a few tidbits about the film in the full story here below.

Olaf's Frozen Adventure

The magic of Frozen, the animated phenomenon that took the world by blizzard, will be back in an all new animated short film that can be seen before all showings of Pixar’s Coco. In the short, titled Olaf’s Frozen Adventure, the holiday season gets underway in the kingdom of Arendelle, Elsa reveals to Anna that there has never been a holiday tradition since their parents’ death. However, hope is at hand when Olaf and Sven decide to go on an epic adventure and find the perfect tradition for the two sisters before the big day arrives.

We were fortunate enough to sit down with directors Kevin Deters and Stevie Wermers, as well as producer Roy Conli and, of course, the voice of Olaf himself Josh Gad to talk a little bit about Olaf’s Frozen Adventure, its themes, and what they hope audiences pull from their experience watching it. Check out what they had to say below.

According to new reports, Academy Award winner Sam Mendes will no longer be directing the live-action take of Disney’s Pinocchio. More on the story below.
