The Lion King is poised to help Disney rule the summer box office all over again when it arrives next month. While the visuals have been nothing short of stunning, especially with it comes to the photorealistic visual effects used to bring the animals to life, we’ve yet to really see the animals talk to each other, which has been a little worriseome. But that changes today.
The Lion King TV spot lets us see Mufasa (James Earl Jones) speaking to a young Simba. And on top of that, we get to hear a new rendition of “Can You Feel the Love Tonight?” sung by Donald Glover and Beyoncé Knowles Carter, the voices of the adult Simba and his childhood friend Nala. Read More »
Disney’s photorealistic computer animated (don’t call it live-action!) Lion King is going to be big. How could it not be? It boasts an incredible cast, and the nostalgia factor alone all but guarantees boffo box office. And yet, the footage released so far has taken great pains to avoid showing the photorealistic animals speaking. A new Lion King TV spot continues that trend, relying entirely on the gravitas-filled voiceover work of James Earl Jones. Watch The Lion King TV spot below.

After the events of Avengers: Endgame, do the high school antics of Peter Parker hold nearly as much weight? If the marketing for Spider-Man: Far From Home is any indicator, it’s the perfect movie to follow the game-changing events of the Marvel Cinematic Universe sequel.
Peter Parker (Tom Holland) quickly became a new kind of Spider-Man thanks to the mentoring of Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.). But now that the genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist is gone, that puts a lot of pressure on a friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. But everyone around him keeps telling him how important it is that Tony Stark trusted in him to begin with. See if Spidey can handle being a true Avenger in a series of new Spider-Man Far From Home TV spots. Read More »
In previous trailers and TV spots for Spider-Man: Far From Home, we’ve heard that in the wake of Avengers: Endgame, the world is asking who is going to be the next Iron Man. Will high school student Peter Parker (Tom Holland) be able to fill the hole that Tony Stark left behind? It’s too early to say, but while he won’t fully take up that mantle, at least Peter should be able to put some of Tony’s old tech to good use.
In this new TV spot, we see the friendly neighborhood web-slinger don some of Tony’s advanced sunglasses, which reminds us that Tony wasn’t too big on the whole “privacy” thing. Read More »
“The king has returned.” That’s one of Rafiki’s lines from the original Walt Disney Animation version of The Lion King, but I suspect many Beyonce fans will be lining up for Jon Favreau‘s not-quite-live-action, not-quite-animated remake to hear their queen lend her voice to Nala, the film’s female lead.
Beyonce has released a new TV spot for the movie through her YouTube channel, and in addition to showing off some new footage from the film (including the climactic fight), it’s also our first opportunity to hear her in-character as Nala.

One thing is clear: Toy Story 4 is going to have a lot more existential dread than the last three films. That’s thanks to Forky, the new character that begs the question: just what is it that makes a toy a toy? And we’re talking the secretly sentient type of toy here, too. Is every single thing a kid plays with a toy – and if so, does that mean anything a child plays with will come to life? The implications are terrifying. In a new Toy Story 4 TV spot, we get to see the origins of Forky, and they’re about as spooky as you might expect.

When it comes to voice acting, Keanu Reeves‘ experience has been pretty limited. Previously, Reeves has only voiced animated versions of live-action characters like Neo in The Animatrix or Ted Logan in the Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure animated series. Plus, he also kinda’ voiced himself in the form of the titular cat in Key & Peele’s movie Keanu. But now he’s full-on voicing an animated character that he’s never played before, and it’s something else.
Toy Story 4 has Keanu Reeves voicing a daredevil toy named Duke Caboom, and the character has finally been properly introduced in the form of a new TV spot. He’s the Canuck with all the luck, but it looks like he’s not too good at pulling off all the stunts that’s he’s supposed to be able to. Watch the Toy Story 4 TV spot below to meet Duke. Read More »
