Lady and the Tramp cast

Tessa Thompson is having a hell of a year. She played supporting roles in Boots Riley’s blistering satire Sorry to Bother You, Alex Garland’s mind-bending Annihilation, and the second season of HBO’s twisty prestige drama Westworld. She was recently cast as the female lead of Sony’s Men in Black reboot, and now she has another leading role to add to her ever-growing resume: she’ll provide a voice in Disney’s live-action/CGI hybrid remake of Lady and the Tramp.

Thompson isn’t the only one to join the Lady and the Tramp cast: Benedict Wong (Avengers: Infinity War) is also on board. Find out more about who they’re playing below.

Ralph Breaks the Internet Teaser

Before the weekend started, we got a look at a new character entering the world of Wreck-It Ralph, a tough street racer named Shank voiced by none other than Gal Gadot. Now Disney wants to show off the Wonder Woman’s computer animated alter ego in action with a new Ralph Breaks the Internet teaser that has her racing against none other than the adorably feisty, candy-haired Vanellope von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman) while Ralph (John C. Reilly) uneasily takes the passenger seat. Read More »

mary poppins returns image

The 1964 Mary Poppins was practically perfect in every way. From the songs to the dance sequences to the immeasurable Julie Andrews, the original Mary Poppins deserves its place as one of the greatest movie musicals of all time.

So director Rob Marshall and star Emily Blunt have quite a task on their hands with the highly anticipated sequel Mary Poppins ReturnsCould this sequel live up to the original’s candy-coated fever dream? The ominous first trailer didn’t seem to indicate as much, but a new Mary Poppins Returns image suggests that the sequel will still be the cheery and whimsical Mary Poppins that we remember.

Wreck-It Ralph 2 Gal Gadot Character

Gal Gadot is crushing it as Wonder Woman right now on the set of the DC Comics sequel Wonder Woman 1984. But this fall, we’ll get to see her in the digital world as a new character in Disney’s sequel to the animated hit Wreck-It Ralph.

Ralph Breaks the Internet has brought in Gal Gadot to voice Shank, described as “a tough and talented driver in an intense and gritty online racing game called Slaughter Race.” That sounds an awful lot like her character from the Fast and the Furious franchise. Get a first look at her character below. Read More »

dora the explorer first look

Remember the Dora the Explorer movie starring Isabela Moner as the grown-up bilingual kid explorer? It’s still happening. And we even have a first look at Moner with the classic bob cut and clad in the iconic pink shirt and orange shorts. And the only thing more baffling than the fact that this movie does indeed exist is the fact that Dora apparently has Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again syndrome and has not changed her hairstyle or outfit since she was 7 years old.

Jumanji Welcome to the Jungle Sequel

Director Jake Kasdan was at the ABC party for the Television Critics Association in support of Speechless and Fresh Off the Boat, shows he executive produces, but does not actively work on. He’s happy to show up whenever they ask, and may direct episodes this season, but Scott Silveri and Nahnatchka Khan respectively run those shows.

So there was really nothing left to talk to Jake Kasdan about except the sequel to his hit Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, which he’s currently writing. We talked about how the sequel may change the game, connect to previous Jumanji movies, and more.

Marc Forster interview

Marc Forster has one of the most varied resumes of any director in Hollywood. It’s not often you find someone who’s helmed a James Bond movie (Quantum of Solace), quiet dramas (Finding Neverland), an unconventional comedy (Stranger Than Fiction), a full-fledged zombie movie (World War Z), and a live-action/CG Disney hybrid.

Unlike many of Disney’s recent live-action fairy tale movies, Christopher Robin isn’t a remake or even a loose adaptation of an earlier animated project. This one is a new story that basically boils down to Hook, But With Winnie The Pooh: an adult Christopher Robin (Ewan McGregor), who spends too much time working and not enough time with his family, encounters his childhood pals Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, and Tigger, and learns to shift his understanding of what’s truly important in life. I spoke with Forster on the phone earlier this week to ask him about stepping into the Disney machine, if the Paddington franchise impacted this film at all, a random Gladiator reference he snuck into this movie, and more. Read our full Marc Forster interview below. Read More »

christopher robin china

Just when you thought 2018 couldn’t get any stranger, Winnie the Pooh has become a polarizing political figure…in China? And it’s not because of his lack of pants, nor his habit of stealing honey from bees (what’s up with that, Pooh!), but because he apparently has a striking resemblance to the President of the People’s Republic of China, Xi Jinping. Because of that, a Christopher Robin China release has been denied by the country, as the Chinese government cracks down on all images of the silly old bear.

Christopher Robin Box Office

Christopher Robin, which looks incredibly charming, is likely to be another hit for Disney. Early Christopher Robin box office tracking indicates the Winnie the Pooh sequel is headed towards an opening weekend that’s not quite as big as other recent Disney live-action remakes, but still nothing to pooh-pooh (I’m so sorry).

the sweetest fig

The Sweetest Fig? More like The Sweetest Feig! That’s my terrible way of informing you that Paul Feig will adapt the Chris Van Allsburg book The Sweetest Fig to the big screen. This family film will be a bit a of departure for Feig, who has primarily helmed R-rated comedies.
