Loki Series Episode Count

Perhaps one of the most surprising projects on the roster of Disney+ shows from Marvel Studios is the series focusing on Tom Hiddleston reprising his role as Loki. And after the events of Avengers: Endgame, we understood how that would work. Now we have word on exactly how long we’ll be spending with the god of mischief when the show arrives in the spring of 2021, and it gives us some idea of how Disney and Marvel are able to bring these big screen characters to their streaming service without breaking the bank.

Black Panther 2 Update and Black Widow Cast Addition

Even though Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe doesn’t include Black Panther 2, we know that there are plans behind the scenes to get the sequel off the ground at some point. Though we’re still very much in the dark about where the sequel will take the African superhero next, we do know at least one cast member who will return from the first movie, and they’re not even from Wakanda. Martin Freeman will return as CIA Agent Everett Ross for the sequel

Meanwhile, Black Widow will be the first movie that officially kicks off Phase Four next year, and even though the project has been filming for a couple months now, we’re just now getting word about them bringing in a massive new cast member who will likely be quite the formidable threat for Scarlett Johansson.

Haunted Mansion 50th anniversary

I couldn’t have been older than six or seven years old when I first stepped foot inside The Haunted Mansion. Even at that young age I was already attracted to scary stuff, so on my first trip to Disneyland, I was drawn more to the creepy house in the middle of New Orleans Square than I was to the flying Dumbos or spinning tea cups.

I’m not one of those super brainy people who can remember every significant moment of their childhood, but I can recall my first time going through The Haunted Mansion in vivid detail – probably because it was slightly traumatic. Read More »

Making of the Captain America vs Captain America Fight

In order to tell one of the most epic comic book stories ever brought to screen, Avengers: Endgame needed plenty of visual effects. From creating characters like Thanos and Professor Hulk and wardrobe pieces like the quantum realm suits to environments like Vormir and entire shots comprised completely of digital elements. And one sequence provided some unique challenges, because it required double the Chris Evans and double of America’s ass. Go behind the scenes of the Captain America vs Captain America fight from Avengers: Endgame below. Read More »

benioff and weiss star wars

In February of 2018, Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss were officially announced as the writers and producers of a new series of Star Wars movies. Technically, that’s still the only piece of official information from Disney and Lucasfilm about the duo’s involvement in a galaxy far, far away, but now a new report suggests that they may not be writing each entry in that upcoming film series after all.

the little mermaid harry styles

Last month, word broke that Harry Styles was being sought to join The Little Mermaid remake cast as Ariel’s love interest Prince Eric. Yesterday, numerous outlets started claiming it was a done deal, and Styles would indeed be part of the cast. Not so fast! It looks like these reports were incorrect, and Styles is not in the movie after all. The singer-turned-actor has declined the role, which means The Littler Mermaid is going to have to find itself a new prince.

Fox Films at Disney

So far, Disney‘s acquisition of 20th Century Fox is not turning out so well for the House of Mouse. Recently we heard that the studio would be scaling back the development of projects that were previously in the works at Fox, so much that only franchises like Avatar and Planet of the Apes would be moving forward. And now some new details about how Disney is proceeding after Fox’s disappointments have come to light, and it gives us even more of a cause for concern. Read More »

Pocahontas Revisited

(Revisiting the Renaissance is a bi-weekly series in which Josh Spiegel looks back at the history and making of the 13 films of the Disney Renaissance, released between 1986 and 1999. In today’s column, he discusses the 1995 film Pocahontas.)

A perfect storm combined to create a film that now serves as an awkward midpoint in the history of Walt Disney Feature Animation’s representation of non-White characters. In the run-up to the release of Pocahontas, expectations were high, so high that it was all but impossible for any film to meet them. The years prior to Pocahontas’ release in the summer of 1995 led to Disney’s most successful run of animated films in decades. In 1991, they received their first Best Picture Oscar nomination. In 1992, they released the highest-grossing film of the year. In 1994, they released a phenomenon to top all others, a film that few internally had expected to do well at all.

No one could have realized in the moment that The Lion King was not just the chronological midpoint of the Disney Renaissance, but also its peak. There were five years left in this Silver Age of Animation for one of the most influential studios in the world, but Pocahontas was the beginning of a mild downturn, not a continuation of impossibly high ambitions.
