Pixar’s ‘Onward’ Featurette Promises a Truly Magical and Touching Family Adventure

With one month left until Pixar’s Onward hits theaters, the buzz doesn’t seem to be all that high. Maybe it’s because this is Pixar’s first original movie since Coco was released in the fall of 2017, but there’s just not a lot of hype yet. That’s why Disney is doing their best to get the word out and show audiences what the modern fantasy world of Onward is all about, and that includes the touching story at the center of it that was inspired by Dan Scanlon‘s real-life experience of having never...

‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ Clip: James Marsden is Being a Really Good Sport About All This

One would have thought that after starring in the Easter-themed family comedy Hop, James Marsden would be done acting opposite entirely computer generated characters.

Thankfully, this isn’t as horrifying as it could have been thanks to the character redesign that pushed the movie back from November last year…but it...
