The 2014 animated web series “Welcome to the Wayne” is checking into Nickelodeon on Monday as a full-fledged series, debuting at 5:30 p.m. Et/Pt.
“Welcome to the Wayne” was Nick’s first web-only short-form series, with six four to five-minute episodes telling the tale of 10-year-olds Ansi Molina and Olly Timbers, and Olly’s little sister Saraline, as they try to unlock the secrets of the mysterious New York building they live in, the Wayne.
The series was created by Emmy winner Billy Lopez (“Peg+Cat,” “Wonder Pets!”), who doubles as the voice of Olly, and is inspired by his childhood in New York’s Greenwich Village. “I especially remember Halloween, when my neighborhood friends and I would go through the buildings we’d lived in. We would just start from the penthouse and tear down the stairs and bang on everyone’s door. It was sort of like ‘Where the Wild Things Are.’ We »

"What's going on with you?" Netflix has released the first official trailer for a film titled To the Bone, an anorexia drama that premiered at the Sundance Film Festival to mostly positive reviews. To the Bone is the directorial debut of producer/writer Marti Noxon, and tells a very real story of a young woman struggling with anorexia, or the inability to eat and an intense obsession with looking thin. Lily Collins stars, giving a remarkable (and almost unbelievable because of how scary thin she is) performance as Ellen. The full cast includes Keanu Reeves, Alex Sharp, Kathryn Prescott, Liana Liberato, Alanna Ubach, Carrie Preston, and Ciara Bravo. I caught this at Sundance and it's an endearing, heartfelt film worth your time. Here's the first official trailer for Marti Noxon's To the Bone, direct from Netflix's YouTube: A young anorexic woman (Lily Collins) reluctantly enters an unconventional treatment program, »

Pixar has positioned itself as the leading animated storyteller in Hollywood, but no matter how many films dazzle us and become instant classics, each new film is met with skepticism. That fact alone speaks volumes about the kind of efforts Pixar undertakes, and is ultimately why they are so good at what they do. When you first hear about the basic premise – Cars, Brave, Up, Inside Out – they sound screwy. There’s just another level of imagination in play when you decide that instead of working up a pitch that has everyone reacting with, “That sounds brilliant!” you look for things that will make people say, “Wait. What now?”
Coco wasn’t really any different when it was first announced.
We finally have a bit more to explore in a new trailer for the film, and while it doesn’t give us a lot of detail on where exactly things are headed, »

Diversity is kind of a hot topic nowadays. As citizens of a melting pot of a culture, it’s nice to be represented in mainstream entertainment. And if we’re being honest, it’s not just about diversity, but authenticity. It always rings a bit false when you have a white person portraying a person of color. It’s especially easy to get away with this in animation, where you don’t even see the voice actors.
Studios have gotten away with this practice for years, but in today’s world, they’re making a conscious effort to create films that respect the culture it’s portraying, and part of that has to do with the voice cast. This newer approach is expanding to Coco, the latest film from Pixar inspired by Día de Muertos, a celebration of the dearly departed.
This is obviously a story that’s steeped in Mexican culture, »
