When it comes to a huge hit like Frozen, it should come as no surprise that Disney just won’t let it go (I know, I’m sorry). The House of Mouse has already delivered an animated short called Frozen Fever that played with Cinderella last year and there’s already a Frozen 2 in the works, but without a release date to look forward to yet. But that’s not all Disney has planned for Frozen.
Disney has officially announced that a Broadway adaptation of Frozen is in the works, for an expected opening in the spring of 2018. In addition, an animated holiday special is in development for release in 2017. Find out more about the Frozen Broadway adaptation and holiday special below. Read More »

How can a forgetful fish, who doesn’t remember anything about her past, find her family? We’ll find out this summer when Disney and Pixar Animation bring their sequel Finding Dory to theaters.
So far we’ve only seen a little bit of the new adventure as Dory (Ellen Degeneres) starts to have flashes of her past, driving her to finally seek out her long-lost parents, who will be voiced by Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy. But a new trailer might be on the way soon, because we just got a batch of new Finding Dory posters that are very fitting considering the film’s title. Plus, these posters just showcase how beautiful Pixar’s animation has gotten over the year, and I can’t wait to see how the underwater environments for Finding Dory have improved in the 13 years since Finding Nemo was released.

With Selma, Ava DuVernay went from a Sundance darling to one of the busiest and most sought-after filmmakers in Hollywood. She flirted with and then turned down Marvel’s Black Panther, she made plans to reunite with Selma star David Oyelowo for a Hurricane Katrina drama, and she got to work developing the drama Queen Sugar for Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network.
What she hasn’t done, however, is announced her next feature film. And as of now, a couple of different genre projects are vying to be it. DuVernay is reportedly being courted for both Disney’s A Wrinkle in Time and Amblin’s Intelligent Life. The former is an adaptation of the childhood classic by Madeleine L’Engle, and the latter is a sci-fi thriller scripted by Jurassic World‘s Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly.
UPDATE: Lupita Nyong’o is reportedly in talks for Intelligent Life, and DuVernay should receive a formal offer in short order. More details below. Read More »
Not only was Super Bowl 50 rocked by a new tease of Captain America: Civil War, but Marvel Studios and Coca-Cola teamed up for a big advertisement during the big game as well. Even though you’ve probably already seen the ad that played during the Super Bowl, it’s online for you to watch over and over again. Sure it’s just an advertisement for corporate sugar water, but it features Hulk chasing Ant-Man for an ice cold can of Coca-Cola. Read More »

It’s been nearly half a century since The Jungle Book hit theaters, and Disney figures that means it’s time for an upgrade. This spring brings Jon Favreau‘s new “live-action” version of Rudyard Kipling‘s classic story about a “man-cub” raised by a family of wolves.
“Live-action” is in quotes there because much of the movie is actually CG — cutting-edge, shockingly realistic CG that looks almost indistinguishable from real life, at least in the footage we’ve seen so far. Behind these CG animals will be an all-star voice cast including Idris Elba, Scarlett Johansson, Ben Kingsley, Christopher Walken, and Bill Murray. The one character who’s definitely not a special effect will be the boy Mowgli, played by newcomer Neel Sethi.
Disney’s clearly got huge hopes for this one, and they’ve given it a cushy Super Bowl spot to tease the spectacle. Watch The Jungle Book Super Bowl spot after the jump. Read More »

The Super Bowl has its charms, but with all due respect to the Carolina Panthers and the Denver Broncos, it’s got nothing on the epic showdown coming in Captain America: Civil War. The movie pits Avengers teammates Captain America (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) against each other in a battle that threatens to tear apart the MCU’s entire population of superheroes — including new additions like Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) and Spider-Man (Tom Holland).
A new Super Bowl spot digs a little deeper into the superhero-vs.-superhero feud, teasing some of the major action and drama to come. Watch the Captain America: Civil War Super Bowl spot after the jump. Read More »
