‘Love, Simon’ TV Series Moves from Disney+ to Hulu Over “Adult Themes”

‘Onward’ Features Pixar’s First Openly LGBTQ Character, Voiced by Lena Waithe

Disney and Pixar are finally giving us our first openly queer animated character — so we hope. In recent years, Disney has made tiny little baby steps toward greater LGBTQ representation, with an “exclusively gay moment” in the live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast, a minor gay character in Avengers: Endgame, and the blink-and-you’ll-miss-it same-sex kiss of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. But those moments ended up feeling like insubstantial excuses for the House of Mouse to pat itself ...

Lena Waithe to voice Pixar’s first out-gay character

Writer/actress Lena Waithe has scored a history-making role: that of the first out-gay character in a Pixar film. Waithe, known for her role in the series Master of None, and for creating the popular drama The Chi, will lend her voice to the character Officer Spector, a purple unicorn police officer in the new film Onward. Slate reports that, at one point in the film, Spector tells another character “My girlfriend’s daughter got me pulling my hair out.” The reference may seem subtle, but it sti...

What’s the state of black film today? These experts explore the range of African-American movie achievements

Melvin Van Peebles had directed a few short films in the late ’50s when he left San Francisco for Hollywood with the goal of trading his day job on a cable car for a career behind the camera. “They said, ‘We don’t need cable car operators as film directors,’” said his son Mario Van Peebles, a second-generation filmmaker, as he introduced a newly restored version of his father’s first feature “The Story of a Three-Day Pass” at the Egyptian Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday, Feb. 16. “He said, ‘No,...

‘The Call of the Wild’ Review: A Heartfelt Survival Story Buried in a Mush of Uncanny CGI

Most attempts to adapt the works of Jack London to the big screen have, more often than not, resulted in a neutered final product. Chris Sanders‘ live-action/computer-animated adaptation of The Call of the Wild falls firmly in this category. Gone is the savage romance of London’s short novel in all its untamed glory, instead, The Call of the Wild is a Disney-fied The Revenant — though it’s even less a survival film than it is a schmaltzy celebration of that bond between dog and human. At parts,...

‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ Breakdown: The History and Details That Enrich “The Bad Batch”

It’s been a long road waiting for these last twelve episodes of Star Wars:  The Clone Wars, but now that we have them, it’s time to look at the lore they’ve drawn from or added to. This first episode, “The Bad Batch,” takes place shortly after the beginning of the Outer Rim sieges and I would guess between six and eight months before Revenge of the Sith . So far, this is almost as close to the end of the war as we’ve seen on the show, though that will all change by the end of the season. ...
