Pete's Dragon

One of the debuts at Disney’s live-action D23 panel today wasn’t a live-action character at all, but an animated dragon named Elliott.

Alice Through the Looking Glass D23

Alice Through the Looking Glass acts as both sequel and prequel to Tim Burton’s 2010 film, with James Bobin jumping in as director from a script written by Linda Woolverton. (Burton is still on as producer.) While story details have been thin so far, today’s D23 live-action panel revealed that the big tipping point is a problem with the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp), which leads Alice (Mia Wasikowska) on a journey through time, aided by Time himself (Sacha Baron Cohen), “a peculiar creature who is part human, part clock.” Read More »

2017’s Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales will be Captain Jack’s first new adventure in six years.

Doctor Strange D23

Disney and Marvel kicked off day two of the D23 Expo 2015 with a presentation for Doctor Strange, complete with a video call-in from star Benedict Cumberbatch and a showcase of production art and animatics provided by director Scott Derrickson, who is in London prepping the movie . The film begins shooting in November, but there was enough weird stuff in the early art to wow the crowd, including mock-ups of Cumberbatch in comics-accurate costume.

And while we’ve heard that Doctor Strange could be Marvel’s Fantasia, there were also physics-defying images of cities and cars warped in a manner that immediately bring to mind Christopher Nolan’s Inception. Read More »

The Jungle Book

We haven’t heard much about Jon Favreau‘s live-action hybrid adaptation of The Jungle Book since production ended. The studio released a piece of concept art that revealed what the project might look like once it is done, and the filmmaker had Instagrammed a bunch of behind-the-scenes images showing the progress.

Otherwise, however, it’s been pretty much radio silence since December of last year. And so, this year’s D23 Expo was the public’s first major look at the new project. Happily, The Jungle Book did not disappoint. Get our Jungle Book D23 footage and panel recap — and see the first Jungle Book poster — after the jump.

Avatar Land model

Update: New details have been revealed about the Pandora: The World of Avatar rides. Get the new info and see some concept art after the jump.

At the last D23 Expo in 2013, Disney didn’t have much to reveal about Disney World’s upcoming theme park land based on James Cameron‘s epic Avatar franchise, offering just a vague tease of props and photos from Imagineering’s research scout to Pandora.

In February we got a bit more information when Walt Disney Imagineering released a video of the filmmaker visiting the Bioluminescent Forrest behind closed doors. Later that year, Disney finally revealed their plans and concept art for the upcoming project, with construction begining on Pandora in January 2014 in Disney’s Animal Kingdom in Orlando Florida.

At D23 Expo 2015, Walt Disney Imagineering finally let fans get a close-up look at what they’re planning for Avatar Land. Hit the jump to see photos from the show floor exhibit and learn more about the upcoming theme park land.

Toy Story 4 D23

John Lasseter took the stage (again) during Pixar’s portion of the animation panel at the D23 Expo 2015 to talk about Toy Story 4, which has been revealed to be a love story between Woody and Bo Peep, inspired by Lasseter’s own relationship with his wife.

Lasseter called Toy Story 3 “a perfect story completion,” but the Pixar brain trust “made a pinky promise never to make another one unless they had a story that was worth it.” This idea came up in a meeting for a different movie, leading to Lasseter and Andrew Stanton privately working on this idea for a while. With a treatment eventually written by Stanton, they took it to Pixar. The Toy Story 4 D23 presentation revealed a couple other details, which we have below. Read More »

The pair last teamed up on Toy Story 3.
