Next week, Disney will release their latest animated musical, Frozen, and it’s a film worthy of the Disney name. Funny, moving, and exciting, it’s going to be a film kids of all ages enjoy for years to come. However, when you go to the theater on November 27 to see Frozen, that’s actually the second best Disney film you’ll see that day. Attached to it is the short film Get A Horse. It’s an old school Mickey and Minnie Mouse short film recently unearthed by the Disney Archivists and converted to 3D. Below, you can see a spoiler-free clip from the film. Read More »

Katniss Everdeen and Cookie Monster wouldn’t seem to have a whole lot in common. One is a serious, prickly teen living in an oppressive dystopia; the other is a jolly mop of blue fur who resides in the world’s friendliest neighborhod. One hunts to feed her starving family; the other is famous for a destructive addiction to baked goods. And so on.
And yet, after seeing Sesame Street‘s Hunger Games parody The Hungry Games: Catching Fur, we can’t think of anyone better to play “Cookieness Evereat” than Cookie Monster. As he puts it, “being strong heroine of entire franchise hard work,” but he’s more than up to the task. Watch the adorable video after the jump.

UPDATE: A pitch trailer for this film was found on YouTube. Check it out below.
That rumbling you feel is the rising tempers of film fans all over the globe. But the holidays are approaching, and maybe we should learn to forgive. That’s the only way to process the wild news that a sequel to Frank Capra‘s 1946 film It’s A Wonderful Life is now in the works.
The tentatively titled It’s A Wonderful Life: The Rest of the Story, written by Bob Farnsworth and Martha Bolton, follows the angel of George Bailey’s daughter Zuzu (Karolyn Grimes, who’ll reprise the role) as she teaches Bailey’s evil grandson (also named George Bailey) how different the world would have been if he’d never been born. Producers are currently looking at directors and hope to shoot the $25-$35 million film in Louisiana early next year for a Holiday 2015 release. Read More »
Even before we knew the official title, speculation ran rampant about how Brad Bird‘s latest film tied into Disney history. When the title was revealed to be Tomorrowland, some additional clues came to light. More was then revealed at the D23 Expo and again when shooting began. Now, the co-writer and director has harnessed his inner teenage girl and posted a selfie on Twitter. That selfie, however, just happens to be in front of an old school Disney ad, raising even more questions. Check it out below. Read More »
Movies set at sea seem to be a new big thing, and now Will Smith is going to sail New York City across the Atlantic Ocean. He’ll star in The City That Sailed for Night at the Museum director Shawn Levy.
The film is one that Smith was considering a few years ago, before he committed to Men in Black III. And this isn’t the first time that Smith and Levy have been connected through a project — the director was going to helm the Fantastic Voyage remake for Fox in 2011, and wanted Smith to star in that. The deal never went through, however.
But Smith’s company Overbrook Entertainment is actively developing The City That Sailed again, and Smith has committed to star.

If all the Marvel, Lucasfilm, Pixar, animation and theme park coverage weren’t hints enough, we here at /Film are Disney fans. Big time. So a film like Saving Mr. Banks, which is about Walt Disney’s struggle to make one of the studio’s greatest films, Mary Poppins, is right in our wheelhouse. The film opens December 20 and will play the AFI Fest presented by Audi this weekend. Peter Sciretta and I were lucky enough not only to see the film before that festival date, but to see it at the Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, CA, where about 45% of the movie was shot and actually took place.
So while this film, which stars Emma Thompson, Tom Hanks, Colin Farrell, Paul Giamatti, Bradley Whitford, BJ Novak and Jason Schwartzman, might not seem like the typical film for us to do a video blog for, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to give our opinion of a Disney film which the Walt Disney Company made in the place Walt Disney actually had these experiences.
