11 cartoon Christmas specials you forgot existed until now

17 December 2014 10:38 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There are a lot of traditions that come along with the holidays. Eating too much, spending too much, drinking too much, saying too much to that family member you hate once drunk, decorating too much. Anything that ends with us hating ourselves come New Year’s? We are all over it like ornament glitter on Goddamn Everything.  For decades, one tradition that has taken root is gathering around the light of the television to watch Christmas specials. As such, certain ones have risen to the top of our frenetic desire to Christmas Harder. Anything claymation from the 1960s (Rudolph, Frosty, Santa Claus), the Charlie Brown Christmas Special, and somehow the California Raisins are among the most instantly recognized animated holiday shows. But they’re far from the only ones. Below, I’ve collected several of the more obscure bursts of nostalgia available for your pleasure on YouTube. Sadly, both The »

Trailer for Inside Out might just herald a new golden era at Pixar

11 December 2014 9:40 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

After a couple of half-baked sequels, the creative juices seem to be flowing again at the Disney-owned animation studio, with an intriguing tale featuring human emotions as characters

Whether you suspect the golden age of Pixar has passed, or remain convinced the Disney-owned production company is still light years ahead of the competition, it’s hard to dispute that the studio has delivered ever more conceptually sophisticated material over its two-decade run.

The synopsis for Toy Story, which transformed the animation zeitgeist in 1995, can be summed up as “anthropomorphic toys have an adventure”, while 2003’s Finding Nemo can be pithily rendered as “talking fish searches the oceans for his missing son”. But try explaining the essential premise of 2006’s Up or 2008’s Wall-e to the uninitiated in just a few words. “Old man goes on an adventure in a flying house” doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface of »

Pixar's 'Finding Dory' Story and Setting Revealed

9 December 2014 7:11 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While Pixar has a full upcoming slate that includes next summer's Inside Out followed by The Good Dinosaur in November, along with the much anticipated debut of Toy Story 4 in 2017, one of their most anticipated projects is a sequel to the 2003 classic Finding Nemo. Omlete recently caught up with Pixar President Jim Morris, who spoke about the 2016 release. He offered the first new information we've heard about this follow-up in quite sometime, revealing the story and the setting.

Even though it will have been 13 years since we last saw Nemo and Dory, Finding Dory will pick up a mere six months since the original. Dory (a role being reprised by Ellen DeGeneres) is living a quite life among the other clown fish. After going on a class trip with Nemo, she begins to feel homesick and sets out on a quest to find her humble origins. Says Jim Morris »

New Story Details Emerge on Pixar's Aquatic Sequel 'Finding Dory'

8 December 2014 1:15 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Disney has set the Pixar Animation sequel Finding Dory for release on June 17th, 2016, which is still over a year and a half away. However, since this is an animated film we're talking about, a lot of the details on the film are already firm since it takes so long for the film to be completed. We know that because over a year ago, Pixar was already working on a new ending for the sequel to Finding Nemo due to the backlash against SeaWorld following the damning details revealed in the documentary Blackfish. Other than that details on the film that is being co-directed by Pixar veterans Andrew Stanton and Angus MacLane ("Toy Story of Terror") have been relatively scarce, but some new tidbits have surfaced today. More below! We already knew that the story was going to follow Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) and Marlin (Albert Brooks) on a journey to »

Review: ABC's 'Toy Story That Time Forgot' a lesser TV sequel

2 December 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When Disney announced last month that John Lasseter would direct a fourth "Toy Story" film, there was inevitable fan concern: But "Toy Story 3" ended so perfectly! Why do we need any more? But Pixar has always done right by its signature franchise, never pushing Woody, Buzz and the gang past a point of diminishing returns. There was plenty of trepidation about "Toy Story 2" and "Toy Story 3," and both times the consensus was that the new film was better than the last. And though the toys' tale could have easily ended with Andy saying goodbye to Woody (while the adults in the audience turned into weeping wrecks), the saga has continued with a handful of "Toy Story Toons" shorts, plus last year's "Toy Story of Terror!" Halloween special, all of them depicting the toys' lives with Bonnie, and they've all been charming, funny and very much worthy, if brief, »

Interview: 'Toy Story That Time Forgot' star Wallace Shawn on the series' anti-decadence message

1 December 2014 12:35 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

You'd have to go a long way to find a career that touches as many far-flung bases as that of write-director-actor Wallace Shawn. One can know Shawn's voice from the "Toy Story" movies, but not recognize him from "The Princess Bride." You could, I suppose, know him as Blair's eventual stepfather on "Gossip Girl" and not know him as Rex or Vizzini. You could think yourself an intellectual and know "My Dinner with Andre" or "Vanya on 42nd Street," without knowing any of Shawn's acclaimed, often outspokenly political plays or his myriad essays. Shawn is so multi-faceted an artist that it's entirely unsurprising that a very brief conversation tied to ABC's very enjoyable "Toy Story That Time Forgot," airing on Tuesday, December 2, begins with simple questions about Rex's endearing short-armed innocence and progresses to the lure of acting to help him maintain a bourgeois lifestyle, delves into the anti-decadence message »

Walking Dead Midseason Finale Post Mortem: [Spoiler] Sounds Off on Killer Twist — 'I Did Not See It Coming'

30 November 2014 7:00 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Warning: The following Q&A contains major spoilers from Sunday’s Walking Dead. Proceed at your own risk. 

Well, Rick’s plan worked: Both Carol and Beth were “discharged” from Grady Memorial in The Walking Dead‘s midseason finale Sunday.

But only one of the women — professional death-cheater Carol — left the hospital with a pulse.

Sadly, Beth — played by series regular Emily Kinney — was shot to death by the hospital’s self-appointed dictator Dawn before she made it out of the building. Daryl, in turn, whacked Beth’s murderer in retaliation.

TV Review: 'Toy Story That Time Forgot' Featuring Tom Hanks, Tim Allen & Kristen Schaal, Is A New Christmas Classic

26 November 2014 1:12 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

When it was announced that Pixar would be endeavoring to make a fourth "Toy Story" feature film (set for release on June 16th, 2017), there were those who decried it as a shallow cash grab since, creatively, there was no where else for the franchise to go, especially after three beloved features and a handful of winning shorts. "Toy Story That Time Forgot," a 22-minute Christmas special airing on ABC on December 2nd, should put those fears of the franchise's creative longevity to rest; this is a weird and wild mini-movie, a new Christmas classic, and proof that there are untold avenues of experimentation within the "Toy Story" universe. After watching "Toy Story That Time Forgot," June 16th, 2017 will seem really far away. Instead of focusing on Woody or Buzz (or one of Andy's beloved playthings from the first two films), the emphasis is placed squarely on Trixie (Kristen Schaal »

Disney Developing a Huge Toy Story Themed Hotel - Concept Art

18 November 2014 9:32 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Earlier this month we learned that Disney and Pixar we developing a Toy Story 4 film that will be released in 2017. It looks like Disney has a big reason to keep the Toy Story franchise alive, as they are currently planning to build a gigantic Toy Story themed hotel. Unfortunately for me and a lot of other fans out there, it's being built on the grounds at Shanghai Disneyland Resort, which is scheduled to open in 2016. I don't think I'll ever find myself in Shanghai, so this will most likely be a hotel I never visit, and that makes me sad.

The news comes from The Disney Insider Blog, who also offered a piece of concept art showing us how awesome the hotel is going to look.  As you can see, the exterior is based on the classic wallpaper from Andy's bedroom, and the classic Pixar ball is in the center of the entrance. »

I Want It Now: Cinema’s long-awaited sequels

12 November 2014 7:54 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Patience is a very important skillset for a film buff, as Hollywood often leaves fans waiting for more for years -- even decades.

Nearly twenty years after audiences were first introduced to the dim-witted duo of Harry and Lloyd, fans are finally getting a sequel to Dumb and Dumber. With Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey reprising their roles as the titular idiots and the Farrelly Bros.’ stepping behind the camera to direct Dumb and Dumber To, audiences will no doubt be chomping at the bit to take another bite out of a classic comedy gold.

Starting with the shortest wait and leading up to the longest, here’s a rundown of some of the longest-awaited sequels of all time.

 

American Reunion (2012) - 9 years

When we were first introduced to the pubescent pastry-procreating protagonists of American Pie, they had barely graduated high school. Fast-forward thirteen years, however, and they’re all grown up with jobs, »

Toy Story 4 Will Be A Love Story, But Between Who?

10 November 2014 5:36 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

When word of Toy Story 4 hit the web last week, the reaction was fast, fierce, and decidedly divided. Many fans cheered for another chance to see Woody, Buzz, and the gang swing back into action in a new adventure. But others grumbled that Pixar had created a perfect trilogy, and that a fourth film would be an artless cash grab. Well, now we're getting a bit more dimension to what the celebrated animation studio has in store for Toy Story 4: a love story. The La Times talked with the people of Pixar to get a scoop on Toy Story 4, and among chatting with its director John Lasseter, they uncovered that the fourth installment of this toy-driven franchise will focus on a love story. We've also learned it will pick up right where Toy Story 3 left off, meaning with Woody, Buzz and the rest of Andy »

'Toy Story 4' Announced; John Lasseter To Direct

7 November 2014 9:00 PM, PST | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

A fourth installment of the Toy Story franchise was announced on Thursday by Walt Disney CEO Bob Iger.

'Toy Story 4'

John Lasster, who directed the original Toy Story film in 1995 and its sequel, will be directing Toy Story 4. "John created Toy Story and directed the first two films, and it's great to have him back directing one of our most valuable properties," Iger said.

Lasseter revealed in a statement that the decision to make a fourth Toy Story film was made when he – along with Andrew Stanton (Wall-e) , Pete Doctor (Up) and Lee Unkrich (Toy Story 3) – came up with a story worth another sequel. In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Lasseter revealed that the film will pick up where Toy Story 3 ended and will be a love story.

“We love these characters so much; they are like family to us,” Lasseter said in the statement. »

'Toy Story 4' Director John Lasseter Shares New Details

7 November 2014 1:49 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

One of the biggest stories to break this week was Disney's announcement yesterday that Toy Story 4 will be released in 2017, with Toy Story and Toy Story 2 director John Lasseter returning to helm this sequel. It will be the first film he's directed since 2011's Cars 2, which comes in addition to his duties of leading two animation studios, Walt Disney Animation and Disneytoons, along with serving as the principal creative adviser for Disney's theme park designers. The filmmaker recently spoke with The Los Angeles Times, revealing why he's coming back to direct this sequel.

"One of the things that was very important for me as an artist is to continue directing. When I direct, I get to work with the individual artists, with the animators. It's very important to keep young talent coming into the studios ... to get back in and help tell stories."

Yesterday's announcement also revealed that »
