Ahsoka Tano

Back in April, Star Wars Celebration had all the saga fans in a frenzy as the first teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi arrived. But outside of that big spectacle, there was also some other big news at the convention: the animated series Star Wars Rebels would be coming to an end after the fourth season concludes.

Dave Filoni confirmed the end of Star Wars Rebels during the panel at Celebration, and along with that news, he also fed the flames of theories about the fate of Ahsoka Tano, who may or may not be dead. While appearing on the panel, he wore a t-shirt that said “Ahsoka Lives?” before they screened the season premiere for fans, and then afterwards came out with a modified version of the shirt that said “Ahsoka Lives!” but refused to acknowledge its significance when asked about it by a fan.

After watching the Star Wars Rebels season four trailer (which you can check out here), our own Peter Sciretta had a theory about what happened to Ahsoka Tano and thought we might have glimpsed her in a new form in that tease for the new season. Unfortunately, Dave Filoni himself has just debunked that theory. Read More »

Rick and Morty Featurette

In the simplest terms, Rick and Morty is an animated comedy series about a drunk, genius scientist grandfather who takes his grandson on insane adventures across the universe and usually creates problem for his family back on Earth. But Rick and Morty is so much more than a series of sci-fi mishaps, vulgarities and drunken burps.

Series co-creator Dan Harmon sat down for a Rick and Morty featurette where he talks briefly about the bleak outlook that Rick Sanchez has by thinking that nothing he does really matters. Is Rick really any happier because he’s smart enough to realize that all of the things that worry the rest of his family are inconsequential? Dan Harmon certainly doesn’t think so, and he explains why in the fairly deep thinking Rick and Morty featurette you can watch after the jump. Read More »

Paul Newman in Cars 3

Today, some of the entertainment sites around the web are reporting Paul Newman being credited as one of the many voices in Cars 3. That really shouldn’t be surprising since we heard his voice in one of the trailers for the movie already, but some are questioning what his role may be since Paul Newman passed away back in 2008, making it impossible for any new dialogue to be recorded for his character Doc Hudson, the aged racer who mentored Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson). Thankfully, we don’t have to guess, because we have the answer from the Cars 3 press day we participated in a few months ago.

Pixar Coco Voice Cast

This summer will bring Cars 3 to theaters, but it’s just one of two new movies from Pixar Animation hitting the big screen this year. In fact, when Cars 3 arrives in theaters next week, it will come with a new trailer for Pixar’s 2017 release, the music-infused, Mexican-inspired animated adventure Coco.

Ahead of the new trailer, Pixar Animation has announced the full, all-Latino voice cast for Coco. We already knew that newcomer Anthony Gonzales was voicing the lead character of Miguel, an aspiring musician living in a household that has banned music, believing it has cursed their family for generations. Following his heart and love of a famous, late musician named Ernesto de la Cruz (Benjamin Bratt), Miguel learns of an amazing link between him and his favorite musician that leads him to an adventure in the Land of the Dead.

The full Pixar Coco voice cast list reveals the many characters we’ll encounter in both the lands of the living and the dead, and you can read all about them below. Read More »

Chloe Moretz trashes her own movie

We’re inundated with a constant stream of content from all angles these days, and the law of averages says that a majority of it is going to be crap. But sometimes I’ll see something so baffling, it makes me stop and think about the dozens of meetings that must have taken place before this thing reached audiences, and I’ll wonder how the hell an idea so terrible was ever given approval.

The latest example: the godawful marketing campaign for a new animated movie called Red Shoes and the 7 Dwarfs, which is so bad it’s drawn the ire of the movie’s star, Chloë Grace Moretz. Think about that. How bad does it have to be for the film’s star to put the marketing team on blast? Find out below.

Cars 3 Clip

With the release of Cars 3 just a couple weeks away, Disney is ramping up the marketing for the Pixar Animation’s new sequel, which will focus on Lightning McQueen as we’ve never seen him before: old and outdated.

Cars 3 puts Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) in a tough spot as he’s faced with the challenge of being beaten by a brand new advanced race car on the scene named Jackson Storm (voiced by Armie Hammer). When a wreck during his first race with the new champ leaves him broken, he has to figure out how to mount a comeback, but without trying to be just like the new cars.

A new Cars 3 clip has debuted giving us a more proper introduction to Jackson Storm and what makes him such an efficient, seemingly unbeatable racer. However, the mere existence of this character also raises even more complicated questions about how the world of Cars operates. Watch the Cars 3 clip below to find out more. Read More »
