The Apocalypse is looking pretty good right now.

Michael Sheen and David Tennant have been cast in the Amazon TV series Good Omens, the adaptation of Neil Gaiman‘s whimsical, and very British, apocalyptic comedy. It’s some inspired casting that bodes well for the adaptation of another Gaiman work, who is on a roll right now after American Gods. A good omen for the show, you might say.

Ferdinand trailer

An animated film about a physically imposing character who’s more than a muscle-bound idiot, with a message about not judging others based solely on their looks? That’s about as subtle as a bull in a chi…well, you know the rest. But animated movies provide teachable moments for young audiences, and even though we’re all familiar with these tropes, there’s always a new generation who’ll be learning them for the first time.

Enter Ferdinand, the latest animated effort from Blue Sky Studios. 20th Century Fox has released the first trailer, and if nothing else, it features an impressive voice cast. Watch the full Ferdinand trailer below. Read More »

DuckTales voice cast

I’ve been very curious about Disney XD’s upcoming revival of DuckTales for close to a year now, ever since they revealed the show’s terrific art style and teased imagery that suggests an adventurous tone. While I enjoyed the original cartoon as a youngster, it’s Carl Banks’ original Donald Duck comics that shine brightly for me these days – if the new show can capture the spirit of those stories, it may count me among its fans.

We still don’t know what this series will truly feel like, but we now know who will be providing the voices of the core cast and it’s a whole bunch of very funny, very talented people.
