toy story 4

Toy Story 3 brought Pixar‘s flagship series to an emotionally resonant and thematically sound conclusion, solidifying the the series’ place as a landmark in modern animation and filmmaking. So let’s just be totally honest here: Toy Story 4 can’t help but feel a little redundant. What else do these characters have to say?

A few new updates on the status of Toy Story 4 have arrived, confirming that this project is still very much in the works and racing toward its 2018 release date. All we can do now is trust that the folks at Pixar (who are still, for the most part, geniuses), have a good reason to bring Buzz, Woody and the gang back to the big screen for another adventure.

The Good Dinosaur Neil DeGrasse Tyson

Astrophysicist and cosmologist Neil deGrasse Tyson loves to debunk the science that goes into science fiction. Recently he’s questioned the science of movies such as Gravity and The Martian, and sometimes he gets a little too carried away with his realistic approach to the world of movies, ruining the fun for the rest of us.

But in the case of The Good Dinosaur, the scientist doesn’t explain why the Pixar Animation movie isn’t realistic simply because it has talking dinosaurs. Instead, he imagines what the world might actually be like if dinosaurs had survived as they have in this new family adventure hitting theaters this week. Watch! Read More »

hey arnold tv movie

Sorry, ’80s kids. Your window of importance to the nostalgia-machine is coming to an end. The ’90s are back and they’re bringing all of their movies and shows along for the ride.

The latest splash of ’90s-flavored news (we’ll be fully submerged in pure liquid ’90s by 2018 or so) is that Nickelodeon, the curator of the average Millennial’s childhood television intake, is planning to reach into their back catalog for new content. That means that several of the most popular shows from a very specific era of Nickelodeon may be seeing the light of day once more. First up is Hey Arnold, the animated series that debuted in 1996 and inspired a theatrical film in 2002 before being axed in 2004. Nickelodeon has revealed that a television movie tying up the loose ends from the series is on the way with original series creator Craig Bartlett on board as a writer and executive producer.

zootopia trailer

The Walt Disney Company was built on the backs of talking animals, so the existence of a movie like Zootopia was inevitable. Why settle for a talking mouse and a talking duck and their small circle of friends when you can have an entire city populated by talking animals, each of them ready to line store shelves in huggable plush form?

And while the merchandising opportunities for Zootopia seem enormous (you just know Disney is already looking for ways to squeeze these characters into their theme parks and Disney Infinity and what-have-you), the movie itself looks clever and cute. A new preview has arrived, offering a look at a single scene from the movie and it’s charming stuff. Walt Disney Animation Studios has been on a roll recently with Frozen and Big Hero 6, both of which took home Academy Awards, so no pressure, Zootopia.

Rugrats Grown Up

One of the most revered cartoons for children of the ’90s is Rugrats. The Nickelodeon animated series followed the antics of a group of babies who could talk to each other when their parents weren’t around, and they constantly got into mischief and adventures. The show has quite the fair share of adult fans who have taken to introducing the series to their own kids now. But one storyboard artist from the show has a bit of a gripe about how some fans are taking liberties with the beloved characters, and has spoken up with some special artwork in tow. Read More »

The Little Prince Trailer

We got our first-look at The Little Prince over a year ago. The animated film, based on Antoine de Saint-Exupéry‘s beloved children’s book, has already opened in theaters all over Europe, but since there’s not as many fans on this side of the world, it’s been a bit of a wait for the movie to make its debut in North America. The book has sold over 140 million copies worldwide, and based on the tone and animation we’ve seen in these trailers, filmmaker Mark Osborne (Kung Fu Panda) and all involved have stuck to what people responded to in the book.

After the jump, watch a new international The Little Prince trailer.

Edgar Wright Animated Movie

Director Edgar Wright has been a feature filmmaker for about 11 years now, and in that time he’s delivered four outstanding films with near-flawless screenplays, tight editing and visuals that truly use the medium of film to its full potential. Knowing what he’s pulled off in the live-action realm with Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World’s End and Scott Pilgrim vs the World, I’ve always wanted to see what he can do in animation, and now we’ll get to find out.

The Wrap has learned that Wright has signed on to direct and co-write his first animated feature film for DreamWorks Animation. At this time details are scarce, but the movie reportedly focuses on a concept involving shadows, and it seems to have loose ties to a project that DWA was developing awhile back. Read More »

my little pony movie release date

Many of the young girls who are enjoying My Little Pony at this moment probably won’t have any interest in the big screen version that is officially set to arrive in 2017. They’ll have grown up and moved onto other things. Maybe they’ll be old enough to be going on dates and sneaking out behind the school to try the cigarettes they stole from their parents. They’ll have other things on their minds. However, little kids will always love colorful talking horses and there will be a new batch of adoring fans waiting to experience the big screen adventures of Rainbow Dash and her posse in two years.

Meanwhile, the grown men who are also devoted to this franchise have just set a countdown clock.

Hit the jump for more on the My Little Pony movie release date.
