First Look: Jon Favreau’s The Jungle Book

Jon Favreau The Jungle Book logo

Disney has released the first look at concept art for Jon Favreau‘s new “live-action” version of The Jungle Book. I use quotation marks around live action because the film will seamlessly blend live-action with photorealistic CGI animals and environments, “using up-to-the-minute technology and storytelling techniques to immerse audiences in an enchanting and lush world.” So basically imagine how James Cameron shot Avatar with some live-action elements but mostly a computer created world populated with photo realistic animals of Life of Pi or Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. See the full piece of Jon Favreau The Jungle Book concept art after the jump

Villain Star Wars Force Awakens header

The Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer had everyone talking about the new baddie (and possible Sith lord) Kylo Ren’s lightsaber which featured a laser sword cross-guard. Some have argued about the practicalness of this new design, but most people think its cool regardless. And now we learn another radically different unconventional lightsaber design is about to be revealed in the Star Wars universe, but not on the big screen.

The unconventional new lightsaber design will debut on Disney XD’s animated series Star Wars Rebels. And no, I’m not talking about The Inquisitor’s double-bladed spinning lightsaber which premiered earlier in the season — I’m talking about an all new design we have yet to see. For those who don’t want to wait, check out the concept art after the jump along with all of the details on the new Star Wars Rebels lightsaber.

5 Movie Crossovers That Could Be Ridiculous Fun

godzilla pacific rim“Legendary Battle” by Sean Sumagaysay

Yesterday we learned that Sony was discussing a possible crossover movie between their successful 21 Jump Street franchise and their evergreen Men in Black series. This is obviously the next evolution of the Marvel-style universe trend that all of Hollywood is chasing. I know we’re supposed to hate this sort of thing but I couldn’t stop thinking about which modern movie properties could be combined into mega crossover movie events that (however ridiculous) I’d actually want to see. After the jump I list the best opportunities for big screen movie crossovers.

Star Wars Theme Park Rides

Ever since Disney acquired Lucasfilm and Star Wars fans have been clamoring for a bigger Galactic and Rebel presence in the Disney theme parks. We’ve posted many rumors about a new Star Wars land being planned for Disneyland in Anaheim — at one point they were even testing out an idea for a third park which would’ve combined Star Wars and Marvel, but word has it didn’t test well with females. The latest rumor is that a Star Wars themed land will replace Disneyland’s Toon Town with construction beginning in 2016.

Today we learn a bit more about what the future of Star Wars holds in Disney Parks with a confirmation that any Star Wars theme park rides and attractions will be based on the new films, and not the older original (boo) and prequel (yay) trilogies.
