Even though Nickelodeon is still a destination channel for kids these days, they just don’t have as many cool game shows as they used to back in the ’90s. They have a handful on the air today, but in the ’90s the likes of Guts, Double Dare, Figure It Out, Nick Arcade, Wild & Crazy Kids and Legends of the Hidden Temple really gave kids something to get excited about. And now one of them is making a comeback, though not exactly in the way that we would have hoped.
Legend of the Hidden Temple is getting a reboot on Nickelodeon, but rather than being a game show for kids, it will be a TV movie that incorporates elements of the show into the story. This comes after Hey Arnold! was slated to get a TV movie on the network as well. Find out more about the Legends of the Hidden Temple reboot below. Read More »

This year the Ice Age franchise will have been going on for 14 years. That means that some of the kids who grew up with the first movie may be having kids of their own now, which is a bit depressing. But that just means 20th Century Fox has a new round of kids to crack up at the silly prehistoric antics of their latest sequel, Ice Age: Collision Course.
As we’ve seen extensively before, Scrat is still chasing his acorn, but he ends up getting launched into space, creating a cosmic disaster, and ends up triggering a slew of meteors headed straight towards Earth. It’s up to Sid (John Leguizamo), Manny (Ray Romano) and Diego (Denis Leary) and the rest of their weird friends to figure out what’s going on in order to survive what could be a world-ending disaster.

Even though The Jungle Book is over a month away, Disney seems to be anticipating quite an audience for their live-action re-telling of Rudyard Kipling‘s classic novel. Tickets are officially on sale for the film that features an all-star cast voicing animals brought to life entirely by visual effects. In fact, almost the entire movie is being created with the use of visual effects, not unlike Avatar or Gravity.
Now a new TV spot shows off some more of the magnificently created animals, including more dialogue from the likes of Ben Kingsley as Bagheera, Idris Elba as Shere Khan and Christopher Walken as King Louie. The more I see of this movie, the more I’m impressed and curious to see how well this tale is brought to life in this way. Read More »
The early buzz on Zootopia is that in addition to some fine family comedy, it also packs some surprisingly poignant social commentary and a powerful message that everyone can probably take something away from when the credits roll. And of course, there will also be endless animal puns in Disney’s comedy that imagines a world where animals live like humans.
Now the puns are in full swing again with the latest marketing push from Disney, using the Academy Awards this weekend as inspiration to make some new parody posters of the nominees, along with a new TV spot. Check out the new Zootopia posters and TV spot below. Read More »

Even though a movie like Disney’s live-action remake of Cinderella will get far more attention for its costume design (which earned the film an Oscar nomination) than its visual effects, that doesn’t mean there wasn’t still some impressive work done on the fairytale remake.

The original Full House was never really that good. It was cheesy and corny, relied heavily on catchphrases and cutesy kid mugging, and never touched any topic that couldn’t be wrapped up in 22 minutes. So what are we to make of Fuller House, its 21-years-later sequel premiering this week at Netflix? If it successfully recaptures the spirit of the original, it’s going to be sentimental and mushy. But is that a bad thing, really, when that’s exactly what audiences want out of this property?
That’s the question a lot of critics are grappling with in the first Fuller House reviews. No one is arguing that this is great TV, really, but some are satisfied with its recreation of that classic Full House formula, sickly-sweet as it is, while others suggest Fuller House needs something more to justify its existence. Read the first Fuller House reviews below. Read More »

UPDATE: Disney has reached out to let us know that its blog has made an error, and that Scanlon is not directing Cars 3. No director has been announced for the Pixar sequel. Original story follows.
You won’t find many Pixar fanatics who cite the two Cars movies as their favorites from the studio. The first Cars wasn’t bad, but it was a disappointment coming in the middle of Pixar’s impeccable early run, and the second Cars is still the only Pixar movie ever to get a “Rotten” score on Rotten Tomatoes. It’s safe to say a lot of adult fans wouldn’t mind if Lightning McQueen and his friends just drove off into the sunset for good.
But Cars is absolutely huge with kids, and as a result this franchise draws in money by the truckload. Box office and home video sales are just the start of it. There are also toys, theme park attractions, and tons of other tie-in merchandise. So of course Pixar’s going to keep this thing running as long as they can. The studio announced a Cars 3 in 2014, and now they’ve finally revealed who’s behind the wheel: Monsters University director Dan Scanlon. Read More »
