We all went into Frozen fully expecting to hate the obvious contender for irritatingly cute and quirky sidekick, Olaf. Instead, he made us melt with emotions and we got waylaid by another annoying plush doll marketing ploy: the trolls.

But good news to all of you who loved Frozen except for that whole subplot with the trolls — Broadway’s musical adaptation of Frozen will cut them out altogether. Now that’s how you treat a fixer upper.

Batman vs Two-Face

The universe was cruel earlier this year when it took Adam West away from us. The iconic actor, who played The Caped Crusader in the beloved ’60s Batman series, passed away back in June, prompting tributes from the /Film staff and fans spread across Hollywood and the world. But thankfully, we’ll get to see Adam West as Batman one more time.

Before Adam West passed away, there was a Warner Bros. and DC Comics animated movie featuring Adam West and Burt Ward teaming up again as Batman and Robin, reprising their roles from the Batman TV series that began in 1966. It was such a success that a sequel was put into works that would adapt a storyline that was intended for the TV series, but never filmed for a number of reasons. It turns out Adam West had finished recording all of his lines for that movie before he passed away, and now we know when you’ll be able to see it. Read More »

Darkwing Duck on DuckTales

This weekend brings the premiere of the new DuckTales animated series to Disney XD. It’s a new spin on the fan favorite show from the 1990s featuring the globe-trotting adventures of Scrooge McDuck and his three nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie, this time brought to life by the voices of David Tennant, Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz and Bobby Moynihan.

Along with the new spin of the same characters, it turns out DuckTales will do something that the original series never did before. As we learned last fall, despite sharing the characters Launchpad McQuack and Gizmoduck, DuckTales and the other anthropomorphic duck animated series Darkwing Duck took place in different universes. But when it comes to the new DuckTales series, that won’t be the case. Find out more below. Read More »

Voltron LEGO

We’ve featured plenty of custom LEGO sets here, but only a handful of them get a legitimate shot at being turned into real sets that end up on the shelves of toy stores around the world. Thanks to the creation of LEGO Ideas, master builders have a chance at having LEGO fans vote on which custom sets they’d like to see go in front of the board that decides which of the sets get turned into official LEGO products. One of those sets has been given the greenlight.

Soon LEGO builders will be able to assemble five lion robots to form the giant robot known as Voltron: The Defender of the Universe. That’s right, an official LEGO Voltron set has been approved, and if you missed it the first time around when we featured it as a custom creation last spring, you can check out images below.
