Is it just me, or is "Haven" going kind of nuts these days? Think about it -- in "Lay Me Down," we get suddenly contagious Troubles, hints that Jennifer may have even more Barn connections, the mysterious arrival of creepy Barn guys ... Oh, and Wade Crocker (Christian Camargo) totally went the serial-killer route before his own brother had to kill him.
It's nuts. But nuts is good. Find out why in this recap.
Two important points are made in the very first scene of "Lay Me Down": Jennifer is back in town, and Wade is all evil and stuff. Also, Jennifer isn't insane anymore and therefore wants to get a newspaper job at the only periodical in town, the "Haven Herald." This means that she may or may not wear glasses.
Wade, meanwhile, gets all creepy in his quest for cleaning supplies.

If our other news items on Pixar’s future releases and sequel news for Finding Dory haven’t got you excited, then it’s doubtful this next piece of news will as I’m afraid it’s more animated goodness. This time it’s pure Disney, with not a hint of Pixar to be found, as they announce a director and give us some concept art for Zootopia. Zootopia is a buddy action comedy that features a fox accused of a crime he didn’t commit and the rabbit police officer that is also implicated in the resulting conspiracy. Byron Howard, who impressed many with his rendition of Rapunzel in Disney’s Tangled, will direct based on a script by Jared Bush. As you can imagine from the title, the whole film is set in a modern day society populated by animals, which will probably mean lots of puns and sight gags. »

One of the more intriguing projects announced at the Disney D23 Expo event on Friday was Zootopia, from Tangled director Byron Howard and Wreck-It Ralph producer Clark Spencer. A buddy comedy set in a world entirely populated by animals, it’s a chase film and a conspiracy thriller starring a fox, a rabbit and an entire ecosphere of other creatures who can walk and talk, but aren’t simply anthropomorphic.It’s certainly a promising idea, made all the more mysterious by being kept so under wraps until now. Howard is working this time with writer Jared Bush to bring the story of smooth criminal Nick Wilde (the fox) and copper Lt. Judy Hops (the rabbit) to life.After the presentation, Howard talked about how the spark of the idea first came to him. “I think all of us have a strong connection with animals," he explained. "When Jared and »

Zoo-what? Disney Animation has been quietly preparing a number of secret projects, one of which is the Marvel superhero movie Big Hero 6 set for 2014, the other is their 2016 feature, a project called Zootopia. Announced for the very first time today at Disney's D23 Expo, the animated movie is being directed by Tangled's Byron Howard from a script by Jared Bush and takes place in a different world where animals are essentially people. Basically, it's posing the question: "What would the world look like if animals lived in a modern looking world without humans?" The first piece of Zootopia concept art has also been unveiled. Disney's Zootopia plot summed up: a buddy action comedy set in a world where humans never existed. As reported by SlashFilm covering the D23 presentation, Howard and writer Jared Bush's inspiration comes from all the classic animated Disney animal movies, specifically Robin Hood (from »

During Disney's Animation D23 Expo panel, John Lasseter announced a new project their animation team is working on called Zootopia. If you couldn't guess from the title the movie completely revolves around animals, and these animals live in a world where humans don't exist and have never existed.
The movie is being directed by Byron Howard (Tangled ) from a script by Jared Bush. To give you an idea of what this movie will entail, these guys were inspired by the classic Disney animated film Robin Hood. Howard wanted to make a movie with animals in clothing and he wanted to continue the legacy of Disney animal-based movies. Lasseter loved the idea so much he gave Howard a big ol' hug and told him he would support the film.
They've been working on the film now for about a year and a half, and it's described as a “buddy action comedy »

Disney announced a new upcoming animated film earlier today at the D23 convention. Tangled director Byron Howard is onboard to helm Zootopia, which is described as a buddy action comedy that takes place in a world entirely inhabited by animals. Jared Bush (All of Us) is writing the script, and the story plays out against the backdrop of a contemporary setting in which animals take on anthropomorphic characteristics (ie. they wear clothes). The main characters of Zootopia are Nick Wilde, a fox, and Judy Hopps, a bunny, and the official logline is as follows: In the animal city of Zootopia, a fast-talking fox who’s trying to make it big goes on the run when he’s framed for a crime he didn’t commit.

We know when to expect a raft of new Disney and Pixar animated movies now. We just don't know what they are...
With Walt Disney Animation Studios now firing strongly off the back of hits such as Tangled and Wreck-It Ralph, the broader Disney studio now has in place two outlets delivering a major animated motion picture every year. The Animation Studios has been doing one (this year's release: Frozen), and Pixar has, of course, been doing the other (with Monsters University arriving shortly).
The studio has now revealed a whole host of upcoming release dates for its next projects, although what it's not done is told us just what they are. So let's go through the dates first, before we do a bit of guess work.
4 March 2016: Untitled Disney animation
17 June 2016: Untitled Pixar animation
23 November 2016: Untitled Disney animation
16 June 2017: »

As a director, Byron Howard is two for two in the film department, both with 2008's Bolt and 2010's Tangled. Both films were major successes both domestically and overseas, while Rotten Tomatoes has them listed with 88% and 90% approval ratings, respectively. We look forward to seeing what he does next, and apparently he's not only found his project, but also a star. The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Howard has begun work on a new film with Walt Disney Animation and that Jason Bateman has signed on the voice the lead character. Unfortunately, everything else about the movie remains a mystery, much like most projects in early development at Disney and Pixar. The trade does say that it's an "untitled animal comedy" that has not yet found a release date. When you think about how many animated movies have animals for lead characters, that's not really much to go on. Bateman's »
Jason Bateman is joining forces with Walt Disney Animation on a secretive, untitled comedy. No story details were released, but the project is said to be an, "animal comedy."
Byron Howard (Tangled, Bolt) is directing, although it is not known who is working on the screenplay or who will produce. Before making his directorial debut in 2008 with Bolt, Byron Howard worked in the animation department on such Disney animated movies as Pocahontas, Mulan, Lilo & Stitch, and Brother Bear.
It isn't known when production will begin, or when Disney is targeting the comedy for release.
Jason Bateman (Arrested Development) may be lending his voice to character in an upcoming animated feature from Walt Disney Animation. Directed by Byron Howard (Tangled), the logline on the project is being kept under wraps, but appears to be an animal comedy of some sort. The picture has no release date at the moment. This would mark the first feature voice role for Bateman and could be the first solo directing job for Howard, who co-directed both Bolt and Tangled. Hit the jump for more. Heat Vision reports that Bateman is in talks to join this super-secret picture but few other details are available. It's possible that a recent report of voice actors on Disney's premiere Adr studio at Stage B has something to do with the new film. From Bleeding Cool, this tweet from voice-actor Bill Farmer (Toy Story) came to our attention: Bill Farmer @GoofyBill Had a great »

Jason Bateman is in talks to voice-star in a new Walt Disney Animation feature project that will be directed by Tangled helmer Byron Howard. Walt Disney Animation and Pixar won't comment on animated projects in development, and it's rare when information on one leaks. But sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that the new project is an untitled animal comedy that does not yet have a release date. Howard is well respected in the animation community and one of the directors behind Disney Animation’s recent resurgence. In fact, he directed (with Chris Williams) 2008’s Bolt, which was nominated for an
