Following presentations for Disney-Pixar properties 'The Good Dinosaur,' the upcoming 'Monster's University' short film, 'Party Central,' and 'Finding Dory,' this year's D23 Expo brought out director Peter Doctor and producer Jonas Riviera to introduce their upcoming project, 'Inside Out.'
During the third-annual D23 Expo, held at the Anaheim Convention Center in California, event host and Disney's chief creative officer John Lasseter debuted a brand-new 'Monsters University' short film, 'Party Central,' which will make its theatrical premiere in front of the upcoming Pixar film 'The Good Dinosaur.'
The Disney princesses are a much-loved group of 11 animated characters, ranging from original Disney princess Snow White to Merida from Disney and Pixar's 'Brave.' Official Disney princesses can be on just about any kind of toy or clothing imaginable. With so much merchandise riding on their likenesses, Disney is pretty picky about who it lets into this elite circle. Here are 10 Disney princesses who are no less royal than the major ones, but never got the Mouse's full seal of approval.
It's been some months since the world-altering shocker that was Disney's purchase of the 'Star Wars' franchise, which preceded the announcement that Cartoon Network's excellent 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' would shut down in favor of new Disney XD series 'Star Wars Rebels.' Today, coming out of Europe's Star Wars Celebration, we've got our first look at the artwork, logo, and new details of the series from executive producer Dave Filoni!
It's strange to think that a decade ago Captain Jack Sparrow wasn't really a "thing." But after four 'Pirates of the Caribbean' movies and one on the way, an update to the original theme-park ride and plenty of merchandising, Sparrow has become a household name. So drink up, me hearties, as we check him out in today's Cosplay of the Day.
The 'Saving Mr. Banks' trailer has arrived via our friends at Moviefone, giving us the first footage of what promises to be one of the most talked about movies this awards season. We'd expect nothing less from a movie about the making of 'Mary Poppins,' with the great Tom Hanks playing Walt Disney and the equally great Emma Thompson playing P.L. Travers.
It shouldn't surprise you to learn that a new live-action version of 'The Jungle Book' is currently being written for Disney. After all, the company's latest (and so far successful) business plan has been to take previously successful animated properties and transform them into live-action spectacles. It worked for 'Pirates of the Caribbean' and 'Alice In Wonderland,' and it'll probably work for the wrapped 'Maleficent' and the about-to-shoot 'Cinderella.' So, 'The Jungle Book'? Why not?
