It’s been over a year since Robin Williams’ shocking, heartbreaking suicide. His career has definitively ended, and his posthumous films Boulevard, A Merry Friggin’ Christmas, Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, and Absolutely Anything have all come and gone from theaters. Robin Williams movies are no more, and a specific clause in the beloved comedian and actor’s last will and testament, as noted by the New York Post, will ensure that it stays that way.

Disney’s The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror attraction has been around since 1994, and if you grew up in the ’90s you may recall that it was already the inspiration for one film — a 1997 Disney TV movie starring Kirsten Dunst and Steve Guttenberg. It was one of the studio’s first attempts at translating a theme park attraction into a film, and it’s now one of their latest as Disney is reportedly developing a new movie based on the popular ride.
As a general rule, fan theories are typically over-reaching, laughably terrible and unnecessary. But one such fan theory has actually been confirmed by the directors of the film. In this case, it’s the long-running fan theory about Robin Williams’ Genie in Disney’s Aladdin, the rare bit of fan speculation that’s actually harmless and kind of cute. You win this round, fan theorists — sort of.
Marvel’s animated Guardians of the Galaxy have given us a chance to catch up with the adventures of Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket and Groot before its cinematic inspiration arrives for Volume 2 in 2017, and the TV branch will reach another milestone before the film. Disney XD’s Guardians will return for a second season, and crossover with The Avengers as well.
Earlier today, Star Wars Rebels gave us a closer look at Season 2 with a clip of Sarah Michelle Gellar’s villainous “Seventh Sister,” but the Disney XD drama had so much more in store for New York Comic-Con 2015. A brand new trailer sees Ahsoka taking on the Inquisitors, with some surprises in store for the Ghost crew in Season 2.
Disney announced a slate of 19 upcoming films with release dates through 2020. In addition to Marvel’s Ant-Man 2, three untitled Marvel movies and the release date for The Incredibles 2, Disney also revealed dates for four new live-action fairy tales. According to Variety, the untitled fairy tales will be released on December 22, 2017, November 2, 2018, March 29, 2019 and November 8, 2019. But what could these untitled movies be?
Last week, we learned the surprising news that Buffy vet Sarah Michelle Gellar would ignite Star Wars Rebels Season 2 as a new inquisitor, rather than a young Princess Leia. Still, the erstwhile vampire slayer is all menace in the latest clip from Season 2, as Ezra attempts to hold his own in an interrogation.
So far, we only know some basic info about Disney’s next animated musical, Moana — Dwayne Johnson joined the voice cast months ago, and the studio offered a few details during D23, but nothing very substantial, like who exactly is playing the title role of the next Disney princess? A new feature introduces you to Auli’i Cravalho, a young Hawaiian girl who beat out hundreds of hopefuls in Disney’s search for the voice of Moana.
We’ve known for some time that Star Wars Rebels Season 2 would go further than the reintroduction of Ahsoka Tano to feature fan-favorite Clone Wars veterans Rex and beyond, and Disney XD is diving deep into clone history before its October premiere. Preview the “Return of the Clones” before Star Wars Rebels invades New York Comic-Con for Season 2!
Whether or not James Gunn disputes their canonicity with the films, Disney XD’s Guardians of the Galaxy shorts already have us aboard the new series by filling in gaps the MCU may never get around to. Rounding out the ranks of our beloved criminal super-team is none other than Gamora, and her deadly rivalries with both Nebula and Korath.
