The Incredibles 2 art by Roars Adams
Disney head Bob Iger dropped a big piece of news offhandedly during the Disney Investor’s Meeting today, stating that Brad Bird is working on the story for The Incredibles 2 and that Pixar is also working on a new Cars movie.

No surprise with the Cars sequel; I’m sure they will continue that franchise until it runs out of gas and stops making them money in toy stores and at theme parks. The Incredibles sequel, on the other hand, is big news, and fans should be excited that Brad Bird is involved. No other details have yet been revealed.

Peanuts trailer

Frankly, we were pretty nervous when we first heard that Fox and Blue Sky were trying to will a 3D, CG-animated Peanuts movie into being. Paul Feig (Bridesmaids) coming on as a producer seemed like a good sign, but we’ve seen enough awful kids’ films to know how easy they are to screw up.

But now the very first Peanuts trailer has arrived, and we’re thrilled and incredibly relieved to see that it is nowhere near horrible. In fact, it’s quite good. Aside from the fact that they’re now 3D and CG-animated, Charlie Brown and Snoopy are exactly as you remember them. Hit the jump to check it out.

New Peanuts movie

The last time Charlie Brown and Snoopy were in their own big-screen feature was in 1980. But 2015 is the 65th anniversary of the debut of Charles Schulz‘s comic strip ‘Peanuts,’ and also the 50th anniversary of their wonderful special A Charlie Brown Christmas. And so a new Peanuts movie is finally going to arrive. This time the characters will be brought to life via CG (“we’ll see that Snoopy has soft-white fur” says the cartoonist’s son Craig Schulz) and presented in 3D.

The first images from the film have just arrived, heralding tomorrow’s debut teaser. You can see a pair of shots below. Read More »

Metegol as Underdogs

Juan José Campanella followed his Oscar-winning The Secret in Their Eyes with an animated fusbol film that took the Argentine box office by storm last year. The movie, called Metegol at home, was the most expensive Argentine production in history at $21m, but also a very successful release in South America when it hit theaters last summer.

Now The Weinstein Company has picked up US release rights for the movie; trouble is, the Weinstein Co. will release Metegol as Underdogs in the US. Read More »

Star Wars: The Clone Wars Chronological Episode Order List

We all know that Star Wars: The Clone Wars has always been chronologically set during the three-year time period between the Star Wars prequel films Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. To be more specific, 22–19 BBY on the Galactic Standard Calendar (where BBY means Before the Battle of Yavin, and ABY stands for After the Battle of Yavi). But the episodes didn’t take place (ie air) in chronological order. Now that the series is complete, LucasFilm has released an officially cannon Clone Wars Chronological episode order listing which includes the series’ 121 episodes and the feature-length film.

Incredibles 3D re-release

We’re not likely to see an Incredibles sequel any time soon, but Brad Bird‘s two Pixar films are going to land back in theaters. Pixar is prepping a The Incredibles 3D re-release, and has also added a third dimension to Ratatouille.
