Early in the first season of Game of Thrones, Ned Stark promises to tell his illegitimate son Jon Snow about his mother the next time they meet.

Update From Editor Peter Sciretta: Disney has released two new Tomorrowland videos focusing on some of the characters in the upcoming film. The videos profile Casey (Britt Robinson) and Athena (Raffey Cassidy). We have updated this story to include both Tomorrowland character videos after the jump.
I get the sense Tomorrowland is a movie I’m going to want to live in after we see it. Thankfully, Disney has made that pretty easy. Not all of it is easy to find, but they’ve done a great job at hiding clues to the history of the film across all kinds of media: books, theme parks, television and more.
Basically, it seems like some of the most famous and brilliant minds in history once came together to build a magical, futuristic place for humanity to continue to thrive in peace. But, something happened, and now that place is hidden. How was this place, called Tomorrowland, created? Why is it hidden? How can it be saved?
Lots of these questions are sure to be revealed on May 22 when the Brad Bird film hits theaters. Below, there’s a video detailing this history of Plus Ultra, the group of famous thinkers who combined efforts to create Tomorrowland. There’s also a new TV spot showing some of the connections between this movement and the events in the movie. Check it all out below. Read More »
Imagine if you will a story that might be set somewhere between Harry Potter and The Prestige — a wild tale of rival magicians set in an alternate version of early 1800s England, featuring the influence of faerie and real-world history alike. That’s one way to describe Susanna Clark’s epic novel Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell, and if that makes the novel seem like a daunting piece of work to adapt for television, it is.
BBC One will soon air a Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell series, created by Clark, Toby Haynes, and Peter Harness, with Bertie Carvel and Eddie Marsan in the two lead roles. If this first Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell trailer is anything to go by, the BBC may have come up with a corker of an adaptation. Check out the lively footage after the jump. Read More »

Last year, Maleficent gave us the untold story of one of Disney’s most iconic villains. This year, Descendants offers the untold story of Maleficent’s bratty teenage daughter Mal — as well as the kids of Jafar, the Evil Queen, and Cruella de Vil.
In the Disney Channel original movie, Mal (Dove Cameron), Jafar’s son Jay (Booboo Stewart), Cruella de Vil’s son Carlos (Cameron Boyce), and the Evil Queen’s daughter Evie (Sofia Carson) are sent to prep school to mingle with the children of other, less villainous Disney characters. Watch the Disney Descendants trailer after the jump.

Disney’s passion for live-action versions of classic fairy tale and animated stories continues unabated. Now Vince Gilligan, the creator of Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, has sold Disney a “detailed outline” for Beanstalk, a film that will rework the old Jack and the Beanstalk story. While he won’t script, Gilligan may end up directing. A “revisionist” Vince Gilligan Beanstalk movie may sound like an April Fool’s joke, but this is oddly legit. Read More »
