(Welcome to Out of the Disney Vault, where we explore the unsung gems and forgotten disasters currently streaming on Disney+.)

Back in 1986, ABC used to air a Disney movie every Sunday night as part of the, you guessed it, The Disney Sunday Movie programming block. It was hosted by none other than Michael Eisner, the recently hired CEO of The Walt Disney Company (who was still riding high and decades away from his bitter downfall). This wonderfully weird show gave us some of the most bizarre films Disney ever produced. And thanks to Disney+, you can watch them right now.

This week, we’re looking at the horrifying and bonkers film Fuzzbucket.

lost in space season 2 trailer

“Danger, Will Robinson,” is certainly a phrase that Lost in Space season 2 seems to be taking seriously. But this time, there’s no robot to warn the space-faring Robinson family about it. More than a year after Netflix debuted its glossy, big-budget reboot of classic 1960s sci-fi series Lost in Space, the Robinson clan is back to being lost and facing perilous waters. The latter quite literally, as they turn their spaceship into an actual ship in the Lost in Space season 2 trailer.

Tigra and Dazzler Show Creative Differences

At the beginning of the year, we learned that Marvel Television was teaming with Hulu on four new animated shows inspired by various characters from Marvel Comics. There’s M.O.D.O.K., Hit-Monkey, Marvel’s Tigra and Dazzler Show, and Howard the Duck. Despite the recent shift in power as Jeph Loeb steps down from Marvel TV and Kevin Feige starts to oversee both the film and television sectors of Marvel Entertainment, almost all of the shows remain on track at Hulu. Except for one.

Marvel’s Tigra and Dazzler Show (seen above left) has fired showrunner Erica Rivinoja (Girls Trip, The Addams Family) and the entire writing staff of the animated series due to creative differences with Marvel. In the wake of this development, production has been paused and a major creative overhaul is in the works.  Read More »

Honey I Shrunk the Kids

Back in the spring, /Film exclusively reported that Walt Disney Pictures was working on a reboot of Honey, I Shrunk the Kids. The movie would continue in the same universe as the original film series, with Josh Gad playing the son of Rick Moranis’ character, Wayne Szalinski. Now a grown-up scientist himself, the Szalinksi son ends up accidentally shrinking his own kids. It’s the same story over again, and Disney felt like that warranted bringing back the original film’s director, Joe Johnston, who is now in talks to take the helm. Read More »

(Welcome to The Clock Tower, where we’ll break down the goings on of the The CW network’s Arrowverse. We’ll touch on things like themes, cultural impact, lead-ins to major events, ships, and more every other week! Warning: this Clock Tower is filled with spoilers. Proceed at your own risk.)

Okay, so, no one panic. But we’re here. The weapon is built, the Harbinger has come, and Crisis on Infinite Earths is just days away. This week’s Clock Tower is going to work a little bit differently. We’re still going to talk about the respective shows, but we’re also going to do a little bit of a primer for those who are hyped to check out Crisis, but don’t have the time to commit to five full-time superhero shows! If you’re lost during these little check-ins, just scroll ‘till you hit “So, What Do I Need to Know to Watch Crisis on Infinite Earths?”

new star wars trio future

Nothing ever ends with Star Wars. A universe that began back in 1977, Star Wars has expanded from the big screen to conquer TV, comics, books, video games, and now, streaming. With Disney+ opening the door for more Star Wars stories to be told after the wild success of the streaming platform’s inaugural series The Mandalorian, could we see the new Star Wars trilogy trio continue their adventures even after the end of the Skywalker Saga in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker?

Unlikely, stars Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, and Oscar Isaac say. The Rise of Skywalker stars say that their adventures as Rey, Finn, and Poe Dameron are over after Episode 9’s release, with no interest in any of them appearing in a future Disney+ title.

Little Joe Review

Maybe it’s the success of TV’s Black Mirror, maybe it’s just the general state of the world, but it feels a bit like we need our high-concept science fiction delivered to us in purely dystopian form. Technological advances are inherently suspicious, the conventional wisdom seems to suggest. Our humanity alone might not be enough to save us. It’s oddly comforting, strange as it sounds, to come across a film like Jessica Hausner’s Little Joe, which takes the form of an Invasion of the Body Snatchers-style horror film but dares to suggest that perhaps the things we fear aren’t quite as ominous as they appear.

Richard Jewell is the tragic tale of the unmaking of an American hero. And a new clip and featurette from the Clint Eastwood-directed drama reveals what goes into the making of that tragic tale. Warner Bros. has released two new Richard Jewell clips ahead of the drama’s release, one of which is a featurette on how Eastwood brought the story of the falsely accused security guard to life. Watch the Richard Jewell clips below.

dark waters real people

In any other whistleblower drama, Tim Robbins‘ Tom Terp would be a villain. The supervising partner to Mark Ruffalo‘s corporate environmental defense attorney Rob Bilott in Todd Haynes legal drama Dark Waters (opening wide this weekend), Terp is initially skeptical about Bilott’s budding crusade against the big chemical corporation DuPont. Understandably so: One of the biggest clients for the firm where they both work, Taft Law, is DuPont. Both Terp and Bilott are close buds with DuPont’s in-house corporate counsel Phil Donnelly (Victor Garber).

But as the film heads into its eye-opening reveal of DuPont’s history of chemical cover-ups, Dark Waters pulls the rug from under our expectations of Ruffalo, Robbins, and even Garber’s characters.

borne tv series

Jeff VanderMeer’s novel Annihilation was adapted into an Alex Garland feature film that captivated critics but was largely ignored by major audiences. But perhaps his work will achieve greater success on the small screen. AMC is developing a TV series based on the Borne novels by the Annihilation writer, following a “scavenger in a ruined city of the future destroyed by an evil company [who] discovers a mysterious creature.”
