‘Luck’ Needs a Lady Tonight: Emma Thompson Bails on Skydance’s Animated Movie Because of John Lasseter

Skydance Animation’s Luck is still years away from release, but the movie has just lost one of its stars. According to a new report, Oscar-winning actress Emma Thompson has walked away from the film “because of concerns about working with” John Lasseter, the former Disney/Pixar animation guru who was hired to run Skydance Animation earlier this year.

Watch: ‘Smash and Grab’, Pixar’s Latest SparkShorts Film

Pixar, the Oscar-winning animation studio that once wore Hollywood’s animation crown, is in a bit of a creative transition following John Lasseter’s exit from the company. As they begin to establish their identity under new leadership, they’re looking for fresh directorial voices – and they’re finding them thanks to the SparkShorts program, an experimental storytelling initiative that serves as a sort of developmental league for filmmakers. The first short from this program, entitled Purl, hit ...

New ‘Sesame Street’ Movie is a Musical That Gets Lost in New York

Late last year, we learned about a new Sesame Street movie in development. The project was intended to be the first theatrically released big screen adaptation of the popular children’s television show since Elmo in Grouchland in 1999, so it’s going to be a big deal. Anne Hathaway was being courted to star in the movie set up at Warner Bros. Pictures, and now she’s not only confirmed, but production could start late this summer. Plus, we have details on the Sesame Street movie’s story, thanks t...

Two ‘Zootopia’ Sequels May Be in the Works at Disney Animation

It’s been nearly three years since Walt Disney Animation released Zootopia. Despite winning Best Animated Movie at both the Oscars and the Golden Globes, the movie doesn’t feel like it was as much of a sensation as Frozen. But when it comes to box office, the movie didn’t fall far behind with over $1.02 billion raked in worldwide. Knowing what a sensation Zootopia was around the world, it’s surprising we haven’t heard more details on a sequel developing behind the scenes. That changes today. Zo...

‘The Kid Who Would Be King’ Could Lose Up to $50 Million at the Box Office

The Kid Who Would Be King is having a royally bad time at the box office. Joe Cornish‘s family-friendly follow-up to his 2011 breakout hit Attack the Block is gearing up to be one of the year’s first big-budget flops after the $60 million movie debuted last weekend to a disastrous $7 million at 3,521 theaters. Only a month into 2019, The Kid Who Would Be King marks the lowest launch for a wide-release from a major studio this year. According to Variety, rival studios estimate that the fantas...

‘The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind’ Review: Chiwetel Ejiofor’s Directorial Debut Has Its Heart in the Right Place [Sundance]

Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave, Doctor Strange) wrote, directed, and stars in The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind, a testament to the power of education and science and a movie that feels like a revolutionary act in 2019 America. As world leaders continue to ignore climate change, Ejiofor’s movie provides a sliver of hope through a true story of resilience and ingenuity in the face of overwhelming odds. William Kamkwamba (Maxwell Simba), a promising 13-year-old student who’s always tinkering w...

‘The LEGO Movie 2’ Expands the Building Brick Universe in a New Way, Phil Lord & Chris Miller Explain How

The ending of The LEGO Movie promised a clash of playtimes with some aliens from the planet Duplo arriving in Bricksburg and promising to destroy Emmet, Wyldstyle, LEGO Batman and the whole minifigure crew. As The LEGO Movie 2 trailers have teased, the invasion has brought about an apocalypse of sorts, and amidst all the chaos, a new villain named General Mayhem has kidnapped all of Emmet’s friends, and it’s up to the chipper Master Builder to get them back.

POTD: A Mini ‘Mighty Ducks’ Cast Reunion Happened at a Real Anaheim Ducks Hockey Game

During the 90s, there was an abundance of family friendly sports movies that came from Disney. Sadly, the House of Mouse doesn’t really make movies like that anymore, so today’s generations are still enjoying the likes of movies such as The Mighty Ducks, Angels in the Outfield, Cool Runnings, The Big Green and more. This is all thanks to children of the 90s having kids of their own, and they were likely pretty excited when one of these beloved teams showed up at a real sporting event. During a ...

Nancy Drew is back, and she’s skateboarding. Radical! It breakout Sophia Lillis takes on the role of the famous teen detective for Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase, a film that will either launch a franchise if its a hit, or disappear into oblivion if its a flop.

Disney’s Live-Action ‘Pinocchio’ May Have Lost ‘Paddington’ Director Paul King

Over the past ten years, many filmmakers have tried and failed to direct a new version of Pinocchio. Guillermo del Toro is finally getting his stop-motion Pinocchio passion project made at Netflix, and Disney is primed to bring the character back in live-action like the other remakes of their animated catalogue. But a new update from the Disney movie’s would-be cinematographer suggests that version, which might have starred Tom Hanks as Geppetto, may have now lost Paddington director Paul King,...

‘A Dog’s Way Home’ Review: A Feel-Good Family Film That Takes a Bizarrely Dark Direction

A Dog’s Way Home is a Hallmark card of a movie — it’s pretty and cute, but it’s full of empty emotion. Until about two-thirds of the way through the film when you realize that there may be a surprisingly dark hidden message scribbled in the corner by an embittered card maker. Penned by the writers of 2017’s saccharine super-hit A Dog’s Purpose, W. Bruce Cameron and Cathryn Michon, A Dog’s Way Home treads a similar path. There’s a wholesome story about a loyal dog (voiced with an extra-sweet lil...

‘The Lion King’ Won’t Be a Shot-for-Shot Remake of the Original

After the record setting debut of The Lion King teaser trailer on Thanksgiving earlier this year, many fans have assumed that the new take on the animated classic would merely be a shot-for-shot remake of the 1994 movie. After all, you can put pretty much every shot in the trailer right next to a shot from the original. But Disney’s live-action film studio chief Sean Bailey assures fans that this won’t be a carbon copy of the movie with photorealistic digitally created animals. In the same brea...

Norm of the North: The Keys to the Kingdom is the follow-up to the 2016 Trevor Wall movie Norm of the North, which follows up on the titular bear, now voiced by Andrew Toth, as he gets the keys to the city because people love talking bears, I don’t know.
