wreck it ralph 2 disney princesses

One of the most highly anticipated moments in Ralph Breaks the Internet is the scene where the Disney princesses of the House of Mouse meet the modern gamer girl, Vanellope (Sarah Silverman). More than just a glorified cameo, the scene brings back the majority of the original voice actresses and shows our favorite princesses in a new light.

But what do the princesses get up to when they’re not wielding glass slippers as weapons? Apparently, they love to lounge about in casual wear just like us. And we have been blessed with a first look at the brand new outfits that the princesses wear in their downtime.

cinderella's ears

As per usual, people are freaking out on the internet. And as per usual, they’re freaking out over nothing.

Missing appendages and body parts would be an unusual sight to see in a family-oriented Disney movie, but some eagle-eyed Disney fans thought they noticed something with the arrival of the new Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It-Ralph 2 trailer. And it has something to do with Cinderella’s ears.

cars 3 easter eggs

There are many things we love about Pixar movies. We love their emotional beats, their characters, the worlds they create, and the way they make us reevaluate our world and lives.

But I also love searching for those Easter eggs. When talking with director Brian Fee about the studio’s latest film, I was able to get him to reveal some of the more obscure Cars 3 easter eggs you should look out for.

Beauty and the Beast Theme Song Remake

This month, Beauty and the Beast joins Alice in WonderlandSleeping BeautyCinderella, and The Jungle Book on the list of Disney animated features that have undergone live-action makeovers.

It seems like every week brings a major update on yet another Disney fairy tale, and the studio’s already got several dates set aside for these projects through 2019. Let’s take a look at all the Disney live-action remakes in development right now. Read More »

Why Emma Watson Turned Down Cinderella

In March, we’ll get to see Emma Watson become a Disney princess in the live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast. We’ve already heard her belt out one of the signature tunes from the movie in the most recent TV spot for the movie, and she just looks perfect as Belle, whether it’s her simple blue and white dress, or the elegant yellow ballgown she wears when she dances the night away with the Beast.

But before Emma Watson took on the role of Belle, you might remember that she was in talks to play Cinderella in Kenneth Branagh’s live-action adaptation of Disney’s animated classic that came out back in 2015. Lily James ended up landing the role of that Disney princess after Watson passed on the role back in 2013, but we never found out why. That changes today as an interview reveals why Emma Watson turned down Cinderella. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

LEGO Disney Castle

If you’re a fan of LEGO and Disney, then you’ll probably want to start saving your money for a massive set that will bring the magic of Walt Disney World to your collectible shelf.

LEGO has just announced the arrival of a new official set that recreates Cinderella‘s iconic castle out of 4,080 LEGO pieces. If you can’t think in your head what Cinderella’s castle looks like, it’s the one that you can see from pretty much anywhere in Walt Disney World, but not the one that you see in the Disney logo that plays before movies. What’s cool is that even though this is Cinderella’s castle, it’s chock full of Disney easter eggs.

Check out the LEGO Disney castle after the jump. Read More »

Cinderella Visual Effects

Even though a movie like Disney’s live-action remake of Cinderella will get far more attention for its costume design (which earned the film an Oscar nomination) than its visual effects, that doesn’t mean there wasn’t still some impressive work done on the fairytale remake.

The visual effects company MPC has just unveiled a Cinderella visual effects reel, showing off the incredible, detailed landscapes that make up the kingdom at the center of the story as well as the digital animals and their transformation. It’s even more impressive then you think. Read More »

Angie Han’s Top 10 Movies of 2015

Ex Machina

It doesn’t matter how many resolutions I make: the next New Year always arrives before I’m ready to close the book on the previous year’s movies. There are too many movies I still haven’t seen (maybe next year, Paddington), or movies that probably deserve a rewatch (sorry, Carol), or movies I’m still not quite sure how to process (yeah, I’m still mulling over The Hateful Eight). But we’ve gotta wrap up 2015 sometime, and the first week of 2016 seems as good a point as any to stop and look back.

As always, I’d like to stress that these are not the “best” films of the year. They’re simply my favorites — the films that made me just a little bit happier, a little bit smarter, a little bit better at being a person in this weird wide world. After the jump, join me in counting down my top 10 movies of 2015.  Read More »

Helmut Berger, Actor

It’s that time again. No, we don’t mean Christmas season (though it is that, too), or the annual prestige-pic crush (ditto). We’re talking about year-end top-10 list time. Brace yourselves, because this train’s gonna power through the rest of December and much of January, finally winding down sometime around the Oscars in late February. By that time, we’ll be so sick of ranking things, we’ll probably beg for the sweet mercy of mediocre movies that stand no chance of being on anyone’s list of top 10 anythings.

But that’s later. Right now, we’re still kind of excited to look back at the year that was. One of the first top-10 lists out of the gate, as usual, comes from John Waters, and it’s made up, as usual, of an eclectic mix of offbeat titles. In fact, the most shocking thing about this year’s edition is that it contains not one but two big-budget studio blockbusters.  Read More »
