Encanto Stars Stephanie Beatriz And John Leguizamo On Family, Colombia, And Lin-Manuel Miranda [Interview]

Stephanie Beatriz is not voicing the first Colombian Disney Princess. "I would say I'm a Disney heroine, which would include all the princesses and myself," the "Encanto" star said in an interview with /Film ahead of the release of the latest Disney animated musical (in theaters now)."Encanto" is not your typical Disney animated musical either, though it's got all the hallmarks: a spunky female protagonist, goofy animal sidekicks that may or may not talk, magic houses, characters bursting into s...

Encanto Directors On Creating Disney's First Magical Realist Musical [Interview]

Byron Howard, Jared Bush, and Charise Castro Smith might have created the first-ever magical realist musical. The "Encanto" directors and co-director/writer, respectively, have created a Disney movie that more closely emulates that singular literary genre than many a live-action movie — and they did it with song and dance."When Jared and Byron brought me on to work on this film they were really interested in making a film that was inspired by magical realism," Smith, who co-wrote the script with...

Encanto Songwriter Lin-Manuel Miranda On Why Animation Is The Perfect Medium For Musicals [Interview]

Lin-Manuel Miranda is just happy to have a seat at the table. What does it matter that he's won every major award except an Oscar, and has been heralded as one of the best musical talents of our time? It doesn't make it any less humbling for him to pen the songs for a Disney musical. Even if this is his second one."I had a wonderful time working on 'Moana,'" Miranda told me in an interview with /Film ahead of the release of "Encanto," the Colombia-set fantasy musical film coming to theaters this...

Byron Allen’s Entertainment Education Came From the Giants at NBC

Entertainment mogul Byron Allen’s résumé lists Fairfax High and USC as the Los Angeles educational institutions of his formative years. Not to diminish their importance, when you hear Allen describing his youthful days when his single mother “couldn’t afford daycare” and plopped young Byron down at NBC where she worked, it’s quickly obvious that Allen […]

Will There Be A Made For Love Season 2?

The original dark-comedy series for HBO Max, "Made For Love," is like taking an episode of "Black Mirror," splicing it with 2020's "The Invisible Man" and running it through a comedy filter. Based on Alissa Nutting's 2017 novel of the same name, "Made For Love" is about a woman named Hazel (Cristin Milioti) who escapes from an awful 10-year-long marriage to a tech billionaire named Byron (Billy Magnussen) and the virtual reality complex where they lived for a decade without ever leaving. After s...

Guest Blog: Cain as Vampire

Today on TMtV we welcome author Dina Rae to the blog. Cain, the biblical figure, has been a source of artistic speculation. Whilst association with vampirism would seem to date to the Vampire the Masquerade game, artistic use of the figure goes back much further (Byron writing a play based on the character where his murderous act is encouraged through mystical visions provided by Lucifer). Like the figure of Lilith, the association of Cain with the vampire is now cemented into popular consciousn...

The Filmmakers Behind Disney's Encanto Share How The Film Resonates With Them

"Encanto" is the latest animated feature from Walt Disney Animation Studios. Though it's walking on familiar ground, being a vibrant musical full of charming characters, it is also set to wander into new territory. Specifically, the nation of Colombia is at the heart of this tale from directors Byron Howard, Jared Bush, and Charise Castro Smith. But more than that, the movie is all about family. I recently attended a presentation for the film, which features music from Lin-Manuel Miranda ("Hamil...

Encanto Directors On How They Brought Disney Magic To Colombia [Interview]

"Encanto" is the latest feature film from Walt Disney Animation Studios. And it's not just the second movie coming from the legendary studio in 2021 following "Raya and the Last Dragon," but the studio's 60th feature overall. That's no small thing. It's fitting, then, that the movie will be going to some new places for Disney, namely the nation of Colombia, while also maintaining that special Disney magic that is so associated with these movies. Duo Byron Howard and Jared Bush ("Zootopia") teame...

Despite 'Economic Distress', Two US Nuclear Power Plants Saved From Closing Through Subsidies

Slashdot reader oumuamua writes that two U.S. nuclear plants owned by Exelon "were almost shutdown prematurely...but were saved at the last minute by the Illinois Senate." The Illinois Senate has approved a clean energy deal which includes a subsidy for Exelon to keep the Byron nuclear plant in operation, after the House passed it last week. The plan gives Exelon $694 million to keep the Byron and Dresden plants operational. Exelon had previously begun drawing down the Byron plant with an ant...

Byron’s nuclear plant has generated jobs and revenue for decades. Now its future is on the line in Springfield: ‘We’re pawns in a big chess game’

The nuclear plant outside Byron, Illinois, supports hundreds of jobs and provides the majority of tax revenue that funds local schools. For residents, the political bickering over an energy deal that could save or kill the plant presents a direct threat to their future.

With clock ticking on Exelon’s threat to shutter Byron nuclear plant, Illinois House returns Thursday to take up energy proposal

The First Museum Dedicated to Mary Shelley & Her Literary Creation, Frankenstein, Opens in Bath, England

Halloween came early this year! Last week, Mary Shelley’s House of Frankenstein opened its doors in Bath, England, mere steps from the infinitely more staid Jane Austen Centre. Both authors had a connection to Bath, a popular tourist destination since 43 CE, as evidenced by the ruins of the Roman thermal spa that give the city its name and UNESCO World Heritage Site status. Austen lived there between 1801 and 1806, and used it as a setting for both Persuasion and Northanger Abbey. Th...
