Its been a while since we’ve heard anything about Avatar Land, Disney World’s upcoming theme park land based on James Cameron‘s epic Avatar franchise. Last we heard, construction had begun on Pandora in January 2014 in Disney’s Animal Kingdom in Orlando Florida. Today we get an update which gives us a preview of some of the creative process including some of the really cool looking interactive features of the bioluminescent forrest currently in the works. Watch a video of James Cameron discovering the progress being made as he visits the Avatar Land Bioluminescent Forrest behind closed doors.

Darth Vader’s appearance may be the headline when it comes to Monday’s Star Wars Rebels season one finale, but there’s lots more going on. A daring rescue, menacing Star Destroyers, three way lightsaber battles, and pimped-out Tie Fighters — things are about to get big. A trailer for the episode, which is called Fire Across the Galaxy, has just come online and it’s really fantastic. Good enough that we decided to highlight it on its own instead of in Star Wars Bits.
Below, watch the awesome season one Star Wars Rebels finale trailer. Read More »
The first official Avengers: Age of Ultron poster was a big mess of characters and details, but the character posters are a lot more clean. It helps that the posters only have to focus on one character each — in this latest case, Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk — and also that it appears to be just one part of a larger set which will assemble into a huge image. (This looks like it could be something along the lines of the concept art drop from Comic Con last summer.) We’ll continue to post the Age of Ultron character posters as they arrive, assembling them as we go along if they are indeed pieces of a larger image.
See all of the Avengers: Age of Ultron character posters below.

For anyone who grew up in the Eighties or Nineties, DuckTales was just a part of your life.

Here’s your first good look at the short film follow-up to Frozen, via the Frozen Fever trailer. The short reunites the creators and cast of the hit film — Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Jonathan Groff, and Josh Gad voice Anna, Elsa, Kristoff and Olaf, while Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee return to direct — in a story that takes place on Anna’s birthday. And while it’s great that the family conflict we saw in Frozen is all sorted out, this time Elsa has a problem that would be a small thing for most of us, but for her could be more serious. Check out the trailer below. Read More »
Marvel just released the full Avengers: Age of Ultron poster. And it’s jam-packed with heroes, villains, and anticipation for the May 1 Joss Whedon sequel.
Among the revelations? Anthony Mackie will return as Falcon, despite denials for the past several months. There are also confirmations of cameos from a number of other smaller Marvel Cinematic Universe characters. Check out the Avengers: Age of Ultron poster below.
UPDATE: We’ve added an international version of the poster that changes things around a bit. Read More »
The current conversations about Star Wars: The Force Awakens are primarily concerned with two things: spoilers and trailers. Director J.J. Abrams recently admitted some of the spoilers on the Internet are true, just as some really big ones have come online. Meanwhile, everyone else has been patiently waiting for and debating when we’d see our next glimpse of footage. The safe money is on Thursday April 16, when Abrams and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy kick off Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, CA.
In a new interview, Abrams commented on this and offered up very little information. He did say that the conversation about how and when to release information to the fans happens every day. Read the J.J. Abrams Star Wars 7 trailer news below. Read More »

Fans know infinitely more about Star Wars: The Force Awakens than they do the standalone films. For sure, we know Gareth Edwards is directing one that’ll be released in December 2016. Gary Whitta wrote the first draft, Chris Weitz is writing the latest and we think Oscar-nominee Felicity Jones will star. We also think it’ll be about a group of bounty hunters or pirates hired to steal the plans for the Death Star. Emphasis on “think.”
That’s the 2016 film. 2017 will see Rian Johnson’s Star Wars Episode VIII and then 2018 will see the next standalone. We think Josh Trank will direct that film, but rumblings are even that might not be true anymore. As for the subject of the film, it’s mostly speculation.
Which is all preamble to the latest rumor, coming from The Sun newspaper in the UK. They say that second standalone movie will feature a young Han Solo (a rumor we’ve heard for years at this point) and that Taron Egerton, currently starring in Kingsman: The Secret Service, is being eyed for the role.
