Onward D23

Disney/Pixar is pumping the brakes on sequels, and its next movie is a totally original animated fantasy adventure called Onward. As usual, the cast is wildly impressive: Chris Pratt, Tom Holland, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Octavia Spencer star, and Dan Scanlon (Monsters University) is the writer/director behind the new feature.

We learned a bit more about this elf-centric adventure film during today’s D23 presentation – here’s what we know so far.

Onward first look

Following the release of Toy Story 4, Pixar is entering a new era: one that no longer includes sequels or prequels. For fans of the award-winning animation studio this is great news — even though Pixar’s sequels were of higher quality than most sequels or reboots out there, there’s nothing like watching a fresh, original Pixar film.

The first of these is Onward, a magical adventure film that stars Tom Holland and Chris Pratt as two elf brothers living in modern day suburbia. Disney has released the first Onward first look at the Holland and Pratt’s elvish characters, who “go out on an adventure to see if there’s a little magic left in that world.”

veep to end after season 7

Selina Meyers is finally conceding, and Veep is ending after seven seasons on the air on HBO.

Veep Season 6 teaser

Veep is currently facing a very strange challenge that the show couldn’t possibly have seen coming when Armando Iannucci first created it several years ago: namely, the fact that real-life politics has far surpassed any twisted insanity that a bunch of TV writers could ever come up with. Since the inauguration, each day has yielded enough blunders to account for a season’s worth of storylines on Veep, and our actual politicians are starting to make Jonah Ryan look smart and decent. And none of this is really funny — it’s actually kind of terrifying.

So will Veep season 6 try and reckon with our new (and horrible) political reality? Will it accidentally comment on recent events? (You know, the way every movie seems to be “about Trump” now despite the fact that all of them were conceived and shot well before the 2016 election.) Or will it blithely continue on, as oblivious to the real world as its characters are? We’ll find out when Veep returns in a couple of months, but in the meantime here’s a trailer to remind you of where we left off with Selina Meyer. Watch the first Veep season 6 teaser below.
