‘The Hunchback of Notre Dame’ at 25: An Oral History of Disney’s Darkest Animated Classic

In the mid-1990s, the possibilities were endless for Walt Disney Feature Animation. After the studio hit creative highs with Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, and The Lion King, Disney was powerful enough to take risks that were impossible a decade earlier. An adaptation of an iconic Victor Hugo novel was such a risk. 25 years later, The Hunchback of Notre Dame is one of the most remarkable films Disney’s ever released, and one that hasn’t been topped for sheer boldness. As it celebrates its 25th ...

The Award for the WORST Anime Dub of All Time Goes to…

To me, Angel Cop is a classic among vintage Japanese anime. However, anime fans remain divided on it, with some calling it boring and others calling it a staple of 80s Japanese animation. One thing everyone agrees on about Angel Cop is the English dubbed version dialogue is bad. Like real bad. But it’s so damn funny,…Read more...

The Original Ending of Pixar’s ‘Luca’ Involved a Giant Kraken

Like all Pixar movies, Luca went through several significant changes on its path to its final cut – including a wildly different ending that was totally overhauled by the time the completed version was finished. The studio is famous for breaking down its stories over and over again until they shape the story into its ideal form, and for Luca, part of that process involved cutting out an initial ending which involved a kraken. Liam Neeson, eat your heart out. During a recent interview with Luc...

‘Luca’ Director Talks About Crafting the Movie’s Ending, Taking Inspiration From Fellini, and More [Interview]

While Pixar’s Soul grappled with existential questions about what happens before and after death, the studio pivoted to a far simpler story with its latest movie, Luca, the story of a sea monster who can pass as a human boy on the surface and who yearns for freedom. But it didn’t always have such a simple narrative. I spoke with director Enrico Casarosa and producer Andrea Warren in a recent Zoom interview about earlier iterations of this story, their film’s LGBTQ+ metaphor, how parts of Luca w...

‘Robin Robin’ Teaser Shows Off the Next Aardman Stop-Motion Film, Coming to Netflix

Aardman is one of the pillars of stop-motion animation, a studio that has been chugging along for decades now and is still going strong. But its survival is still kind of miraculous, especially as stop-motion becomes less common in a CG-dominated animation landscape, on top of Aardman’s tendency to take its sweet time between releases. Which is why it’s a relief to see Aardman Animation get some of that good Netflix money for its next release, a holiday film titled Robin Robin. Watch the first ...

When Space Jam hit the big screen back in 1996, it came with an impressive soundtrack that spawned a handful of hit singles. Among them were R. Kelly’s “I Believe I Can Fly” and Seal’s cover of “Fly Like an Eagle.” But nothing tops the movie’s theme song performed by the Quad City DJ’s, who made it big with their single “C’mon N’ Ride It (The Train).” Unfortunately, it doesn’t sound like they were asked back to create a new theme for the Space Jam: A New Legacy soundtrack, which just revealed t...

The Director of ‘Luca’ Reveals the Classic Italian Films That Influenced His New Pixar Movie

Luca, the latest film from Pixar, is a rollicking, sun-dappled adventure set in a small seaside Italian town. Like The Little Mermaid, the film follows a young sea dweller who discovers what it’s like to live on the surface world and yearns for freedom. The only problem is that small seaside town’s residents hate and fear sea monsters – kind of like how the residents of Berk hate and fear dragons in How to Train Your Dragon. But those earlier animation touchstones are far from the only projects...
