star wars episode 9 release date

One side effect of announcing a schedule of movies years in advance is that, sometimes, you have to completely shift that schedule to accommodate reality. Today, Disney announced new and changed release dates for a number of its movies, including Star Wars: Episode 9, Indiana Jones 5, Frozen 2, Gigantic, The Lion King, and Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2.

Alan Tudyk Frozen 2, Wreck-It Ralph 2, Guardians of the Galaxy

When Disney decides it likes someone, it has a tendency to work with them again and again. And right now, there are few stars they seem to like more than Alan Tudyk. Not only has he appeared in every Disney Animation feature since Wreck-It Ralph — up to and including this fall’s Moana — he has a mo-cap role in this month’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

That won’t be the end of his relationship with the Mouse House, either. The actor confirmed he’ll be back for Frozen 2 and Wreck-It Ralph 2, both of which are currently in development at the studio. But there’s still one Disney property he still hasn’t gotten in on, and that’s Marvel — apparently to his regret, since he’s confessed a desire to join James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy films. Find out what Gunn had to say in response, below.  Read More »

Frozen Elsa

Disney’s heavy-hitting franchises are slowly getting more diverse. The Force Awakens has more female and non-white characters in speaking roles than the first three Star Wars movies combined. Captain America: Civil War introduces a new black superhero this weekend (and he’s getting his own movie in 2018). This fall’s Moana introduces Disney’s first Polynesian princess. And so on. But even as these universes gradually open up to women and people of color, they’ve continued to leave LGBT people out in the cold. And fans and filmmakers alike would like to see that change.

Recently, GLAAD called upon the studio to include LGBT characters in the Star Wars universe. Now the Frozen faithful are campaigning on social media to “#GiveElsaAGirlfriend” in the sequel, while Civil War directors Anthony and Joe Russo field questions about when the Marvel Cinematic Universe will get its first major gay character.  Read More »
