Crazy Disney Video Shows How The Studio Recycles Animation

15 May 2015 5:06 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Disney.s long and storied history means that you expect them to accidentally produce similar scenes in their movies. It would be almost impossible for them not to. However, a damning new YouTube video proves that the iconic studio regularly recycled footage in their films simply because they were too lazy to create new sequences. Don.t believe me? Then check out the evidence for yourself below. Warning: There.s a good chance this will instantly ruin your childhood. Kudos to the good folks over at Movie Munchies for finding this evidence. Disney would simply draw over existing animation cells to make new scenes with characters that had similar designs, characteristics, and movements to the originals. The scoundrels. This means that the title character of 1937.s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. movements and dancing during the well known yodelling sequence in their cosy abode could then just be given »

The Disgusting Reason A Movie Theater Had To Renovate After Showing Snow White

27 April 2015 8:54 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

One of the highlights of this year's Tribeca Film Festival ended up being Brad Bird.s conversation with host Janeane Garofalo. While other participants in panels and talks struggled to either open up, be engaging or speak clearly, Garofalo and Bird.s camaraderie was obvious from the get go, which was probably down to the fact that Bird had directed her in Ratatouille. And while Bird spoke eloquently about his past and future works as a director, there was one revelatory slice of cinema history that he uttered which really stole the show -- and it involves both pee and the Disney animated classic, Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs. During the Q-and-a session that followed the foray into his work, Brad Bird was asked about his thoughts on the fact that Walt Disney wasn.t afraid to scare children, and how that has influenced his own career. And while »

Disney Developing Live-Action ‘Pinocchio’ Movie

8 April 2015 2:13 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Disney is developing a live-action version of “Pinocchio” with Peter Hedges on board to write the story loosely based on the studio’s 1940 animated movie.

Hedges wrote the screenplays for “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape,” “A Map of the World” and “About a Boy.” He directed “Pieces of April,” “Dan in Real Life” and “The Odd Life of Timothy Green” from his own scripts.

Pinocchio,” which has no other attachments, is the latest in Disney’s strategy of drawing from its extensive animated library.

The studio recently announced that it was developing live-action movie versions of its animated “Winnie the Pooh,” “Mulan” and “Dumbo,” in the wake of successful live-action versions of “Alice in Wonderland,” “Maleficent” and “Cinderella.” A live-action “Jungle Book” is set for a 2016 release and “Beauty and the Beast,” starring Emma Watson, is coming in 2017.

The 1940 movie was based on Carlo Collodi’s 1883 children’s book “The Adventures of Pinocchio, »

MGM’s The Wizard Of Oz Is a Box Office Bomb

1 April 2015 11:20 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The numbers are in and it turns out, MGM’s highly anticipated big screen adaptation of L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is a box office flop. Apparently most moviegoers weren’t really into the idea of a farm girl riding a tornado to an alternate world, stealing some dead woman’s shoes and frolicking down a yellow brick road arm in arm with a cowardly lion, tin man and scarecrow. After going through a handful of directors before landing Victor Fleming and then struggling through a number of production challenges including some serious injuries on set, The Wizard of Oz wound up running MGM a whopping $2.7 million tab, but then only went on to accumulate a total of $3 million during its theatrical run. Tack on distribution and various other costs, and that makes The Wizard of Oz a $1.1 million loss for the company. Clearly it’s »

The Other Cartoon Cinderella: Betty Boop

16 March 2015 11:46 AM, PDT | Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy | See recent Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy news »

Years before Walt Disney made his classic Cinderella…in fact, three years before he unveiled Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, his competitor Max Fleischer produced an elaborate musical cartoon short called Poor Cinderella starring the great Betty Boop. Encouraged, no doubt, by his distributor (Paramount Pictures), Fleischer embarked on a series of “Color Classics” that were intended to rival Disney’s award-winning Silly Symphonies. Because Disney secured exclusive use of the new three-strip Technicolor process for three years, in return for taking a chance on it, Fleischer had to make do with the older two-color process, but Poor Cinderella is still pretty lavish by Max’s...

Cinderella | Review

13 March 2015 10:40 AM, PDT | SmellsLikeScreenSpirit | See recent SmellsLikeScreenSpirit news »

I've been a fan of Disney's classic animated movies for as long as I can remember loving movies. Some of my earliest movie memories are of watching the 1983 re-release of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs in the theater with my family and then eating up the late-1980s - 1990s run of Disney classics such as The Little Mermaid, The Lion King, and Beauty and the Beast. Even though I'm a grown man, I'll admit to getting a little weepy at some of the more "magical" aspects of these types of movies. Whatever... I'm a former Marine who loves to camp and watch crap get blown up by superheroes, but I've always had a soft spot for Disney's more romantically inclined and old fashioned animated movies. If you have a problem with that, come at me, bro. I'll break a glass slipper over a bar stool and fight you »

12 landmark performance capture turns: From Ahmed Best to Andy Serkis

7 March 2015 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

As VFX technology marches on at speed, more and more of our favourite movie characters are being brought to life by actors driving a performance capture digital creation.

Though Andy Serkis's Caesar from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Sharlto Copley's Chappie sit at the cutting edge today, in its current form it actually stretches back nearly 20 years to Star Wars's much-maligned Jar Jar Binks.

Go back even further and take into account rotoscoping - animators drawing over an actors' performance frame-by-frame - it's possible to mark Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs as a landmark film in 1937. There, an actress was used as the basis for the titular princess.

Fast forward to 2015, and we're now at a point where many in the industry are calling for an 'Assisted Performance' Oscars category to recognise the work done by actors and VFX artists.

WGA Prize Gives 11th-Hour Surge to ‘Imitation Game’ Team in Awards Marathon

15 February 2015 10:59 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It takes talent to earn an award nomination. But it takes a separate talent to survive awards season.

Awards campaigning is like running a marathon while blindfolded (and being asked to smile the entire time). So Graham Moore’s win at the Writers Guild Saturday night was especially gratifying for the “Imitation Game” team, because it was the first major salute for the film, though it has been praised since its Telluride bow in late August.

Awards candidates must deal with skeptics who think it’s Ok to campaign for the presidency, but not for an Oscar, as they need to maneuver among studio strategists and journalists. But the contenders know there is one goal: to get people (whether paying audiences or awards voters) to see the film. And one of the chief lures is the post-screening Q&A.

Oscar voting ends Feb. 17, and campaigning has continued right down to the wire. »

Disney's 'Cinderella': 25 Things You Didn't Know About the Beloved Fairy Tale Classic

15 February 2015 1:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

We never get tired of the story of Cinderella, and whether we know it or not, the version we never get tired of is the one put forth by Walt Disney 65 years ago. The 1950 animated feature, released 65 years ago this week (on February 15, 1950) was an instant classic, and its this version we think of when we imagine all the visual details of the story -- the slipper, the pumpkin, the fairy godmother, the mice, and Cinderella and Prince Charming dancing all over the palace grounds.

Still, as many times as we've heard the story or seen the cartoon, there's still more to be mined from the 17th-century fairy tale. (Indeed, Disney is releasing a new live-action retelling next month.) As many times as you've seen the 1950 classic, there's plenty you may not know about it -- how the actress who played Cinderella landed the part without even knowing she'd auditioned, »

101 Dalmatians – The Diamond Edition Blu Review

10 February 2015 12:56 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

101 Dalmatians was one of my favorites films as a child. I generally found that Disney cartoons involving animals, like it and Jungle Book were a lot funnier and less sentimental than all those boring girly fairy-tales like Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs and Sleeping Beauty. I also liked the fact that the action took place not in some fantastic never-never land but in the real England. 101 Dalmatians of course deals with the theft of a litter of Dalmatian puppies by a woman named Cruella De Vil who wants to skin them and turn them into fur coats. The human authorities are baffled, so it falls to the kidnapped puppies’ parents, Pongo and Perdita, to track them down and rescue them- along with a lot more Dalmatian pups acquired by Cruella for the same nefarious purpose.

101 Dalmatians is rather different in look from a lot of earlier Disney cartoons, which were characterized by bright colors. »

Soundtracking: Disney's Top 10 Greatest Songs

9 February 2015 6:00 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

It seems a little bit miraculous, but it's true: It was seventy-five years ago today that Disney’s Pinocchio hit theatres.

In honour of the film’s anniversary, we picked out the top ten Disney songs of all-time. It was incredibly hard to pick one song from each movie, and even more difficult to just pick ten songs altogether. Where will Pinocchio fall on the list, and what song did we pick? Based on the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer, "I've Got No Strings" might have a fighting chance.

Here they are -- Disney's ten best songs:

10. “Heigh-Ho” from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)

Disney’s very first ear-worm, the end-of-the-workday sing-along from the Snow White’s mining companions was one of the earliest examples that Disney’s features could not only keep the kids entertained but produce timeless musical moments. Our apologies if this gets stuck in your head, »

Disney's 'Pinocchio': 25 Things You Didn't Know About the Animated Classic

7 February 2015 1:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Given how revered Disney's "Pinocchio" is today, it's hard to believe it was a flop when it was first released exactly three quarters of a century ago. Upon its New York City premiere, on February 7, 1940, critics hailed the film as a masterpiece, and even to this day, many prefer it to Disney's pioneering first animated feature, 1937's "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs." Yet it took the film many years and multiple re-releases to make a profit.

Today, of course, the legacy of "Pinocchio" is inescapable. Everyone's image of the puppet-boy with the nose that grows when he lies comes not from Carlo Collodi's original novel but from the kid with the Tyrolean hat and the Mickey Mouse gloves, as drawn by Disney animators. And the opening tune, Jiminy Cricket's "When You Wish Upon a Star," is ubiquitous as the theme music played before every Walt Disney movie and home video release. »

Finecut boards Red Shoes & The 7 Dwarfs

5 February 2015 10:00 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Sales company acquires international rights to English-language 3D animation.

Seoul-based sales company Finecut has picked up international rights to English-language 3D animation Red Shoes & The 7 Dwarfs (working title).

Produced by Korea’s Locus Creative Studios, the $12m animated feature offers a twist on the traditional Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs fairytale, in that the dwarfs are actually knights under a spell and Snow White is no longer the fairest in the land.  

“This feature animation will tackle the inconvenient truth about Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, the fairy tale most based on appearances,” said the film’s director Sungho Hong. 

The film, based on a screenplay that won the Grand Prize at the 2010 Korea Story Competition, is being readied for a summer 2017 release. 

Finecut’s Berlin slate also includes Im Kwon-taek’s Revivre, which is screening in Berlin Critics’ Week, Chronicle Of A Blood Merchant, directed by actor Ha Jung-woo (The Chaser) who made his »

Berlinale 2015. Correspondences #2

5 February 2015 3:29 PM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Dear Danny,

The pleasure is all mine. To count myself as your partner in this correspondence is an honour, albeit an intimidating one. You accurately describe our friend Fernando as inimitable, and indeed I find myself in a position with big shoes to fill. Rather than to naively hope to imitate the insightful and often inspiring exchanges you’ve had with Fern these past few years in Toronto, I’ve made a point of not looking back at those pieces and instead intend to rely on whatever differences I bring to distinguish our written conversations from those. I'll be writing eagerly in pursuit of my discoveries. Do you find, like myself, that your ideas develop as you write, that you don’t begin to truly understand what you're writing on until your fingers are typing away, seemingly ahead of your thinking? I'm equally excited for your discoveries, which have intrigued »
