These girls don't need a prince to come and save them. They have lightsabers for that.
In these illustrations, artist Ralph Sevelius has transformed some of Disney's A-Team girls, Ariel, Snow White, and Rapunzel (bet you don't recognize HER at first glance!) into some lightsaber wielding, ass-kicking aristocrats. It's the perfect realization of the dreams we probably concocted in our own childhood imaginations (You mean YOU didn't play Star Wars Disney Princesses and run with sticks at recess? Give me a break!) Get More »
Disney's latest animated endeavor looks like it explores some familiar ground. Uh, sky.
"Planes" follows the adventures of Dusty Crophopper (Dane Cook), a cropdusting plane who dreams of competing in a big aerial race -- which would all be well and good were it not for the fact that he's afraid of heights. Luckily, Dusty's got a mentor, Skipper (James Keach), who can show him how to be Top Gun.
Speaking of "Top Gun," Iceman himself, Val Kilmer, provides the voice of fellow plane Echo, and good ol' Goose, Anthony Edwards, voices Bravo. Other character voices are provided by John Cleese, Teri Hatcher, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Brad Garrett, Priyanka Chopra, Sinbad and Cedric the Entertainer.
Check out the sneak peek that recently screened in AMC Theatres. "Planes" opens in 3D on Aug. 9.
The moment an entire generation of film fans has who have just kept swimming since 2003 is here, as Pixar announced today that the sequel to their smash hit "Finding Nemo" will be called "Finding Dory" and will hit theaters on November 25, 2015.
And star Ellen DeGeneres, who voiced Dory in the original movie, couldn't be happier.
"I have waited for this day for a long, long, long, long, long, long time," DeGeneres said in a press release. "I'm not mad it took this long. I know the people at Pixar were busy creating 'Toy Story 16.' But the time they took was worth it. The script is fantastic. And it has everything I loved about the first one: It's got a lot of heart, it's really funny, and the best part is — it's got a lot more Dory." Get More »
Now that Lucasfilm and Disney have joined forces, it was only a matter of time before Darth Vader made the rounds, scoping out the Disney parks that are, despite his best interests, the happiest places on in the galaxy. But you can't help but feel bad for the guy as he tries to make his way to Star Tours at Tokyo Disneyland. The poor guy -- and a couple of paratroopers -- seemingly get lost in translation, making their way across the Japanese landscape to experience the rich culture of the far east, all while on the hunt for a certain pair of mouse ears.
That's not to say that anything gets lost on them along the way, since they get to hit up markets, beaches, fabric stores, gardens, and there's even time for a tanning break. Not bad for one of the most evil villains in move history, eh?
Here's hoping he's got George Lucas on speed dial, and the guy can give directions in Japanese. (Who are we kidding? Of course he can, he's George Lucas!)
Ever since Disney acquired the rights to "Star Wars" in what is surely the last sign of the coming apocalypse, rumors have been flying that the cast of the original trilogy — namely Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford — will all be returning for "Star Wars: Episode VII." Heck, sometimes those rumors even come from the stars themselves, like Fisher's supposed "joke" yesterday about returning as Leia. It's hard to even figure out what's real and what's not at this point, right?
Well, if anybody would know the truth, you'd think it would be George Lucas — and in a new interview with Bloomberg Businessweek of all places, Lucas has just confirmed that all three stars will indeed be returning. Get More »
In the classic 1992 Disney film "Aladdin," the title character famously sang to his beloved Princess Jasmine, "I can show you the world. Shining, shimmering, splendid. Tell me, princess, now when did you last let your heart decide?"
Well, the answer to that question is actually somewhat disturbing, because according to Buzzfeed, the last time Jasmine let her heart decide she must have been like eight years old, and the decision was probably over which stuffed animal to have a tea party with.
Yeah, you're going to be kind of weirded out when you take a look at just how young the Disney princesses really are. Get More »
You know what kids are into now? YouTube. 17-year-old high school student Heather Traska arranged her own one-woman, all a cappella version of a medley honoring Disney classics. From "Mulan" to "The Lion King" to "The Little Mermaid," Traksa covers a lot of ground, turning your entire childhood into one glorious chorale, courtesy of one voice. Not only that, but she rocks the looks too, giving Disney World employees a run for their money.
Seriously, she looks like Belle and she can sing self-arranged a capella medleys? Watch out, Orlando, Heather Traska's coming to town. Watch your back, Tinkerbell, this girl's got your number.
UPDATE: Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger has confirmed in an interview with CNBC that there are indeed "Star Wars" spinoff films currently being developed by screenwriters Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg. There is of course no word on what characters may be involved.
Sure, the Super Bowl is kind of about football, but it's also one of the few times each year when TV viewers actually get amped up about commercials instead of just using the ad time for potty breaks and/or beer fetching. The price tag for putting a few seconds of salesmanship on air during the big game is hefty to say the least (to the tune of $3.7 to $3.8 million in some cases), and this year a few movie studios are ponying up in hopes of wrangling in some cinema-goers.
