The Mad Hatter is going to be dealing with some daddy issues in 'Alice in Wonderland 2,' which is apparently serving up twice the Hatter craziness. Disney's upcoming sequel is casting theater actor Mark Rylance in the role of the Mad Hatter's father, a role created specifically for the new film.
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. That all changes as stand-up comic and 'Cloverfield' star T.J. Miller becomes the first actor to land a role in the film.
If nothing else, 'Maleficent' looks like a grand showcase for Angelina Jolie's ability to vamp it up on screen. The new trailer for Disney's revisionist take on 'Sleeping Beauty' is as gorgeous and mysterious as the rest, giving Jolie plenty of time to shine and ham it up as the title anti-hero.
One of Disney and Pixar's most beloved hits of all time was undoubtedly Brad Bird's 'The Incredibles,' which saw a family of superheroes thrusted back into heroics after years of remaining in hiding. The director previously said that he was extremely interested in the possibility of continuing the story with 'The Incredibles 2,' but now, during a meeting with the Disney investors, Disney CEO Bob Iger said that Bird is currently at work on a script!
Disney's latest 'Maleficent' trailer sure brings back fond memories of watching the animated rendition of 'Sleeping Beauty' as a kid (or watching them with your kids), but this is not that story. Angelina Jolie smolders (quite literally) as Maleficent in this origin tale of how the iconic witch came to be so ... well, malevolent.
Where the first 'Maleficent' poster featured a close-up of Angelina Jolie rockin' her devilish new look (horns and all), the latest one-sheet released by Walt Disney Pictures reveals ... sadly, nothing new except for a wider shot of the celeb in costume. Still, the A-lister pierces directly into our souls.
The most recent Toy Fair showings filled in a few 'Star Wars Rebels' blanks by introducing us to the remaining primary characters, but we've yet to see any real footage of the franchise's animated spiritual successor to 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars.' That all changes today, with the first look at two new trailers for the fiery 'Star Wars Rebels'!
'Star Wars' animated TV follow-up 'Star Wars Rebels' won't premiere until the fall, but after we met our Han Solo-esque "Cowboy Jedi" Kanan, the new series wants to introduce us to its Luke Skywalker, as well. Meet young Lothal con artist Ezra, our introductory link to the world of 'Star Wars Rebels'!
Upcoming 'Star Wars' animated series 'Star Wars Rebels' remained secretive even through its first character reveal, but at long last we have our first major protagonist, Jedi, and voice actor to boot. Prepare to join the 'Star Wars Rebels' with newly-confirmed voice actor Freddie Prinze Jr., giving life to the ponytail-wearing "cowboy" Jedi knight, Kanan!
Those who tuned into Sunday night's Grammy Awards were in for a special treat: Disney debuted a new 90-second 'Maleficent' trailer, featuring Lana Del Rey performing a haunting cover of the original animated classic's signature "Once Upon a Dream" tune. Coupled with some epic new footage, the end result was rather breathtaking and just the sort of thing to get us properly excited for the upcoming film, starring Angelina Jolie as the classic Disney villain.
