The idea behind 'Big Hero 6,' Walt Disney's first animated Marvel movie since they acquired the home of The Avengers, is an exciting prospect, one that we've been tracking for some time. While the full cast is still to be announced, today brings our first look at this new team of superheroes through unofficial movie posters.
"Let It Go" isn't just a song from a Disney movie - it's a flat-out cultural phenomenon. The Oscar-winning 'Frozen' song has had everyone singing along (in the car, in the shower, in the kitchen) for months, but now even the professionals are getting into the act. Over the weekend, rock superstars Pearl Jam performed in Milan, Italy and busted out their rendition of the new Disney classic.
It's been a good long while since we've heard anything from the front of 'Star Wars Rebels,' the forthcoming animated TV series. Though, in spite of the many character reveals and teaser trailers, at least one aspect of the new Disney XD series has remained a mystery. The show hasn't officially confirmed the voice behind its Jedi-hunting baddie "The Inquisitor," but a new report suggests 'Harry Potter' villain Jason Isaacs might be our man.
By now, superhero fans have long since accepted that the chances of seeing Spider-Man appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe are slim at best. As long as Sony holds the rights to the character, they're going to keep making Spidey movies until the day the Earth stops spinning and the human race quietly fades into nothingness.
At least you'll be able to create your own Spider-Man/Avengers team-up with the upcoming Disney Infinity 2.0, which will include a cool Spider-Man playset. You can watch the super-goofy trailer for it above!
'Big Hero 6' is Disney's first animated movie since the massive success of 'Frozen' and it's also Disney's first animated Marvel movie. For those reasons alone, 'Big Hero 6' should make a ton of money. But, then you see this brand new trailer and you realize this is a movie that both kids and adults alike are gonna love.
When Disney acquired Marvel, it was only a matter of time before the animated movies started coming. However, no one expected the first Disney-animated Marvel venture to be 'Big Hero 6,' which brings one of the most obscure superhero teams in comic book history to the big screen. The first trailer for the film arrives tomorrow, but to prepare for the big reveal, a poster and a brief teaser have made their way online.
This November sees the release of 'Big Hero 6,' the upcoming Disney film based on the Marvel comic from the 90s. They might not be as well known as The Avengers or X-Men, but that could change very soon. Today, we have a first look at the characters from the film and the making of one of the big heroes.
"Well, well..." Maleficent has indeed arrived. Before Disney's 'Maleficent' makes its grand entrance in theaters on May 30, a new clip and a massive gallery of movie stills and concept art have been released to both preview Angelina Jolie's turn as the iconic 'Sleeping Beauty' character and to dive into her world of magic, fairies and fantastical creatures.
As Angelina Jolie mentions, we all know what happened in 'Sleeping Beauty' -- an evil fairy curses the young Princess Aurora to die on her 16th birthday, etc. -- but what about the story of Maleficent? Director Robert Stromberg's behind-the-fairy-tale movie of 'Maleficent' will hit theaters May 30, and Disney released a new featurette, a batch of new photos, and will be releasing a sneak peek to be exclusively shown at Disney Parks that takes fans deeper into her backstory than ever before.
Disney is known to lock animated films away in its vaults for safekeeping, to be re-released at a later time, but we went digging around and discovered this hidden treasure that's been locked up for far too long: a 1946 Disney animated short film called "The Story of Menstruation," which deserves to be honored along with the rest of the studio's classics. Too bad you won't see this playing in front of the next Disney princess film.
