‘Howard’ Review: A Soulful Tribute to the Man Behind Disney’s Most Beloved Animated Classics

“To our friend Howard, who gave a mermaid her voice and a beast his soul, we will be forever grateful.” The dedication to the lyricist behind some of Disney’s most beloved animated hits that runs in the closing credits of Beauty and the Beast is brief but beautiful — which is a fitting description of the life of Howard Ashman, whose amazing life was cut short by AIDS in 1991, right on the cusp of what would be his greatest and most lasting achievement. It’s a fitting description too for Howard,...

‘The Mandalorian’ Novel Release Date Pushed Back to Fall 2021

No ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Sequel Being Planned Right Now, Director Ron Howard Confirms

There have been recent rumblings about some kind of follow-up to Solo: A Star Wars Story. Though disappointing box office returns had pretty much already solidified the fact that the Star Wars origin story of Han Solo wouldn’t be getting its own new franchise, rumors have been sparking in recent weeks about some kind of continuation of the plot threads established in the movie. But when it comes to rumors of an official sequel getting traction, director Ron Howard has officially debunked them. ...

Pixar Announces ‘Luca’, a Coming-of-Age Adventure Set in the Italian Riviera

Even though Pixar Animation is still sitting on the release of their next film Soul, the animation studio has already announced their next project, and it will arrive next summer. Pixar’s Luca is a coming-of-age story said to follow as young boy as he and a new friend experience an unforgettable summer filled with gelato, pasta and endless scooter rides. This sounds like Pixar’s version of Call Me By Your Name, though probably with a lot less peach eroticism. Luca was announced today in an of...

Karl Urban was already part of the new Star Trek franchise created by director J.J. Abrams. But that didn’t stop him from making an appearance in the Star Wars universe. While making the publicity rounds for Amazon’s series The Boys, the Dredd star opened up about a secret cameo he made in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, but you won’t see his face when you spot him.

‘The Mandalorian’ Season 1 Vinyl Box Set and ‘TRON Legacy’ 10th Anniversary Soundtrack Teased by Mondo

Disney+ Will Turn Trick-or-Treat into Chaos with a Supernatural Comedy Called ‘Spooked’

When Disney+ launched last year, one of their big original movies was the Christmas comedy Noelle. Now they’re heading into Halloween territory with new supernatural comedy movie called Spooked, and the premise sounds like it has the potential to be a lot of fun. The Hollywood Reporter has news on the Spooked movie that is currently in the works at Disney+.

‘Hidden Figures’ Stage Musical in Development at Disney

Hidden Figures, the 2016 film that earned a Best Picture nomination at the Oscars, is heading to the stage. Disney is reportedly developing a Hidden Figures musical, which would adapt the story of the Black female mathematicians who were an essential part of the United States space missions during the Space Race of the 1960s.

Disneyland’s Oogie Boogie Bash Has Been Canceled

2020 has been a great year so far: the U.S. is experiencing a booming economy, a period of zero political turmoil, civil unrest is at an all-time low, and everyone in the country miraculously seems to be happy, healthy, and all on the same page about the basic necessity of wearing masks if, God forbid, something like a deadly pandemic were to ever break out here. So when Disney announced today that the Oogie Boogie Bash, the Halloween event at its California theme park, has been canceled, it wa...

‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ Sequel Pushed Back a Month

You’ll have to wait a little longer before you see the Spider-Man: Far From Home sequel, but not that long. While the coronavirus continues to play hell with release dates, with studios shuffling things around every other day, the Far From Home sequel has moved from November 2021 to December 2021. Again: not that big of a push, so you don’t have to get too bent out of shape about this one. At least not yet.

The Live-Action ‘Beauty and the Beast’ Takes the Lead in This Past Weekend’s Pandemic Box Office

It’s a tale as old as time: re-release Beauty and the Beast in theaters, and it will take the top spot. But this time, it’s the live-action Beauty and the Beast, and the theaters are a handful of drive-ins and local cinemas that are still open during pandemic times. Disney kept its stranglehold on the top spots of the pandemic box office this past weekend, with reissues of 2017’s Beauty and the Beast and Marvel’s Iron Man taking the number one and number 2 spots, respectively.

‘The New Mutants’ Debuts Opening Scene and Lots of New Footage, Still Set to Open Next Month [Comic-Con 2020]

The New Mutants has become something of a punchline at this point – a movie that’s been delayed so many times that it feels like it will never, ever come out. And the people behind the film are aware of that, which is why the Comic-Con 2020 panel for the film kicked-off with an amusing teaser in which the many release dates keep flashing onto the screen only to get crossed out.  And while I’m sure many people were hoping that would end with a new release date revealing the film was dropping on ...

It’s been 22 years since director Nancy Meyers remade the classic Disney movie The Parent Trap.

Disney World Closes Masks Loophole, Bans Eating and Drinking While Walking

It’s a small world after all, and getting only smaller if you don’t wear your masks at Disney World. The recently reopened theme park had required masks of its guests, but until now, that requirement was lifted when guests were eating and drinking — which became a problem when guests would eat and walk around the park. But now Walt Disney World has closed that loophole, banning the consumption of food and drink while on the move. Disney World had faced criticism for reopening when coronaviru...

While the writing has been on the wall for some time, the coronavirus pandemic surely hastened the demise of Stitch’s Great Escape, Rivers of Light, and Primeval Whirl, all of which are set to close. In addition, a few other previously announced projects have been temporarily postponed as Disney’s theme park division battens down the hatches for the ongoing COVD-19 crisis.
