For a while there, Pixar was on a bit of a sequel kick with Toy Story 3, Cars 2 and Monsters University. While movie fans will note that while Toy Story seems to outdo itself with every sequel, what use did a second Cars serve? Or a Monsters Inc. prequel for that matter? Especially when you could be putting all that time and effort into, say, a second edition of The Incredibles. Well, that is changing because an essential piece of that puzzle has now fallen into place. Disney/Pixar‘s already announced The Incredibles 2, but now writer/director Brad Bird has said that it will be his next project. (more…)

Disney Infinity. Y’know, that mega popular peripheral game where you collect tiny statues of your favorite characters from the house of mouse  that you can then transform into playable, in-game characters through some hocus pocus, voodoo magic. Well guess what? Disney Infinity‘s brand recognition is about to get even bigger. Think about it, you’re Disney and you hold the rights to the likes of Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, Han and Chewie–why wouldn’t you include them in your latest hit video game?

Disney Infinity 3.0 will expand into a galaxy far, far away. A trailer and behind the scenes featurette from Game Informer shows us what happens when Star Wars comes to Disney’s successful video game world. (more…)

It’s one of the most mysterious projects to be coming out in 2015, and it will be in theaters smack dab in the middle of one of the busiest “Summer of Sequels” in the increasingly long, sad Hollywood history of franchise dependence. Originality is hard to come by in Tinseltown these days, and certainly recent evidence (Jupiter Ascending and Chappie) seems to indicate that people would rather trust the devil they know when it comes to high-profile sci-fi/fantasy films, but can Tomorrowland buck that trend?

For the first of these films we know the director (Godzilla‘s Gareth Edwards), we know the star (Academy Award nominee Felicity Jones), and we know the name (Rogue One). But now, most importantly, we know what it’s going to be about… (more…)
