8 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in August, Disney revealed that the studio is teaming up with Lin-Manuel Miranda and Alan Menken, who are set to write new music for the studio's The Little Mermaid remake. We haven't heard any more on the remake since then, including who will be cast, or who will serve as writer or director on this coveted project. Today we have word that actress Lindsay Lohan may be throwing her hat in the ring for the Ariel role, after a new post on Instagram this weekend.

While Lindsay Lohan doesn't specifically state that she wants the Ariel role, she posted a side-by-side picture of herself with red hair, and the redhaired animated version of Ariel. She didn't state anything else on Instagram, only using the hashtag #TheLittleMermaid. It isn't known if the script is even ready or if the studio is ready to start the auditioning process, but we don't »

Oscar Nominee Lin-Manuel Miranda Learned He Was Going to Be a Dad the Same Day He Booked Moana

17 February 2017 1:09 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Moana composer Lin-Manuel Miranda, whose tune “How Far I’ll Go” is nominated for an Oscar for Best Original Song, still remembers the day he learned he had been hired to write the music for Disney’s latest animated movie.

The 37-year-old had grown up a self-professed Disney superfan — transfixed, among other things, by Alan Menken‘s scores to movies like The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and Aladdin. To be joining the Disney canon of composers alongside Menken, Stephen Schwartz (Hunchback of Notre Dame), Elton John (The Lion King) and more felt like a life-altering step; a dream »

The Founder review: Dir. John Lee Hancock (2017)

12 February 2017 9:30 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Founder review: Michael Keaton is outstanding in this true story of the origins of the fast food joint with the big golden arches.

The Founder review by Paul Heath, February 2017.

The Founder review

Michael Keaton probably deserves more in terms of awards recognition for his work on this new film documenting the early days of fast food giant McDonald’s.

In The Founder, Keaton plays the character of the title Ray Kroc, an Illinois product salesman from middle America who we find attempting to sell milk shake makers to whoever shows the tiniest prospect of purchasing one. One of those business who sure could use one is the Mac and Dick McDonald, owners of a small, independent food restaurant in Southern California in the 1950s. When the two owners show interest in buying at least a few of the new machines, Kroc decides to visit their restaurant in person »

Newswire: Dick Van Dyke is back at the Fidelity Fiduciary Bank for Mary Poppins Returns

10 February 2017 11:21 AM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

In Mary Poppins, Dick Van Dyke espouses the virtues of the Fidelity Fiduciary Bank in song as the grizzled Mr. Dawes Sr. Well, Disney confirmed in a press release today that he’ll appear in the sequel, which is currently in production, as that character’s offspring Mr. Dawes Jr. Van Dyke—who, of course, also played the cheery chimney sweep Bert in the film—teased this back in December, joking to Entertainment Tonight: “This time there’s no four hours in the makeup chair, I grew into the part!” Another person, Arthur Malet, actually portrayed Dawes Jr. in the original, so Van Dyke is assuming his role—unless there are two men named Dawes Jr. in the extended Poppins universe.

Emily Blunt stars in the follow-up as the titular nanny, while Lin-Manuel Miranda is an “optimistic street lamplighter” named Jack. The film catches up with the Banks family »
