Annecy: Disney Channels Unveils ‘101 Dalmatian Street,’ ‘Gigantosaurus,’ ‘Space Chickens In Space’

Annecy, France — Celebrating the 20th anniversary of Disney Channel France, Disney Channels Emea used France’s Annecy Festival to unveil three brand new series: Disney heritage series “101 Dalmatian Street,” as well as “Gigantosaurus” and “Space Chickens In Space.”

‘The Most Beautiful Shots in The History of Disney’ Highlights ‘Snow White,’ ‘Moana’ and Everything in Between — Watch
Disney has its fair share of detractors, but few of them would point to the animation studio’s craft when criticizing the occasional sameness of its fairy tales and princess stories. Video essayist Jorge Luengo Ruiz has put together a six-minute video highlighting some of the best shots from more than 40 animated Disney offerings, from “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” all the way to last year’s “Moana.” Both the video and a list of the featured movies are below.

Actor Rod Taylor of The Birds, The Time Machine Dies at 84

People.com is reporting that actor Rod Taylor died Wednesday at the age of 84 of natural causes.

His daughter Felicia Taylor, a former CNN correspondent, confirmed the news Thursday.

“My dad loved his work. Being an actor was his passion – calling it an honorable art and something he couldn’t live without,” she said in a statement.

“He once said, ‘I am a poor student sitting at the feet of giants, yearning for their wisdom and begging for lessons that might one day make me a complete artist,” she continued, “ ‘so that if all goes well, I may one day sit beside them.”

Born on Jan 11, 1930 in Sydney, Australia, Rod Taylor is best remembered for his starring roles in Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds (1963) and George Pal’s The Time Machine (1960). He also provided the voice of Pongo in Disney’s 101 Dalmatians (1961). Taylor also starred in TV’s “The Twilight Zone

The Birds, Inglourious Basterds Actor Taylor Dead at 84

Rod Taylor dead at 84: Actor best known for 'The Time Machine' and 'The Birds' Rod Taylor, best remembered for the early 1960s movies The Time Machine and The Birds, and for his supporting role as Winston Churchill in Quentin Tarantino's international hit Inglourious Basterds, has died. Taylor suffered a heart attack at his Los Angeles home earlier this morning (January 8, 2015). Born on January 11, 1930, in Sydney, he would have turned 85 on Sunday. Based on H.G. Wells' classic 1895 sci-fi novel, The Time Machine stars Rod Taylor as a H. George Wells, an inventor who comes up with an intricate chair that allows him to travel across time. (In the novel, the Victorian protagonist is referred to simply as the "Time Traveller.") After experiencing World War I and World War II, Wells decides to fast forward to the distant future, ultimately arriving at a place where humankind has been split

Scar, Gaston, Maleficent: Who is Disney's greatest ever villain?

When you think of Disney films, you usually think of the amazing songs, lovable heroes and heartwarming romantic tales.

But no Disney classic would be complete without an incredible villain to scare the bejeezus out of your inner 5-year-old.

In tribute to the release of Disney's Maleficent, we've picked out our favourite Disney villains of all time.

Lotso from Toy Story 3 (Alex Fletcher, Deputy Editor)

He may have been pink and smelled like strawberries, but there was nothing even slightly cuddly about Lotso. The villains in the previous Toy Story movies were pretty nasty - Sid, Al McWhiggin, Stinky Pete - but Lotso wins the prize for being the most dastardly of the lot. And don't even get us started on his scary baby sidekick!

His worst crime? Even after he is saved by our gang of plastic heroes, who are willing to forget his Sunnyside misdemeanours, he still turns on them again.

‘The Jungle Book’ and Racism in Disney’s Animated Features

The release of The Jungle Book on Blu-ray today has become, as when Saving Mr. Banks was unveiled a couple months ago, an unplanned forum on a most thorny issue for the Disney uber-fan: was Walt Disney a racist/sexist/anti-Semite, and if so, was he a super-racist/sexist/anti-Semite, or just your average, garden-variety racist/sexist/anti-Semite? Even though the 1967 animated film based loosely on a collection of stories by Rudyard Kipling opened months after Disney passed away, this was the last film on which he had any serious impact. And, since Meryl Streep chose to make her speech applauding Emma Thompson for her performance as P.L. Travers in Saving Mr. Banks as much about exactly how bad a man Walt Disney was, the issue of his true personal feelings–whatever those may have been–and whether or not they crept into the films he made has become unavoidable as of late.

Movie News: Bizarre 'I, Frankenstein' Pic; Cruella De Vil Getting Her Own Evil Movie; Trailer for James Franco's 'Sal'

I, Frankenstein: We're not quite sure what's going on in a new image from I, Frankenstein, featuring Aaron Eckhart surrounded by bizarre flying creatures, terrified people, and plenty of fire. Perhaps the first trailer, which should hit on Friday, will help clear things up. The movie, costarring Bill Nighy and Yvonne Strahovski, will be unleashed in theaters on January 24. [Collider] Cruella: Disney is developing a movie that revolves around Cruella De Vil, the evil woman who kidnaps puppies to skin them for their fur in the animated children's movie One Hundred and One Dalmatians (1961). The character was played by Glenn Close in the live-action 101 Dalmatians and its sequel 102 Dalmatians; Aline Brosh McKenna, who scripted the upcoming live-action version of...

Disney Is Making a Cruella De Vil Movie

The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Disney is moving forward with a solo film for Cruella de Vil, aptly titled Cruella. The studio has chosen Aline Brosh McKenna (We Bought A Zoo, The Devil Wears Prada, 27 Dresses) has been hired to pen the script.

de Vil is the villain in Dodie Smith’s book The One Hundred and One Dalmatians. Disney adapted the book into the 1961 animated classic 101 Dalmatians and the live action 1996 film, which was followed by the 2000 sequel 102 Dalmatians. Glenn Close played de Vil in both live action films, but I’m guessing Disney is going to want someone a little younger this time around.

There’s no word on a director or casting, but that will come together once the script is finished.

What do you think?

Top Ten Animated Movies to Show Your (very young) Kids

It’s no secret that sitting down and watching something with young children can be very hard. Children can get really scared easily. You have to be careful what you show to a child if you don’t want his or her crying to wake you up in the middle of the night. And what may be worse, children don’t really want to watch stuff that is too complex. They get bored very fast. Choosing a movie that won’t scare them and that will entertain you isn’t easy. So hopefully, this list will come in handy next time you want to watch something with your child.

10. Robin Hood (1973)

Most people regard this as one of Disney’s weakest and least memorable movies. Not only is it an incredibly child-friendly tale that recasts Robin Hood and the characters from the Sherwood Forest as different animals, but it is also quite funny,

The Jungle Book marked a return of sorts for Walt Disney; after only being partially involved in One Hundred And One Dalmatians and The Sword In The Stone, the latter’s disappointing performance led Disney to take a more active role in the film’s story. He threw out storyman Bill Peet’s original script, which closely
