Last year, Disney announced development on its first animated Marvel feature film, 'Big Hero 6,' though after the studio debuted the first concept trailer and images at last year's D23 Expo, we had still yet to learn of any voice cast additions.

Yes, we might all secretly toast to Sam Neill's health in the hopes that he will tackle Merlin once again, but his time on the TV miniseries 'Merlin' is long gone.

From being an ape, to leading them, to now directing them ...
Motion-capture master Andy Serkis, who famously portrayed intelligent ape Caesar in the prequel 'Planet of the Apes' movies and became Gollum for Peter Jackson's 'The Lord of the Rings' and 'The Hobbit' trilogies, will step into the director's chair for Warner Bros.' rendition of 'The Jungle Book.'
