The Best and Worst Prequel TV Series — IndieWire Critics Survey

11 April 2017 10:25 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What does it take to make a good prequel TV series? (And feel free to include an example of a show that got it right or wrong.)

Allison Keene (@KeeneTV), Collider

A prequel TV series is the most successful when it uses familiar touchstones but creates its own world. “Hannibal” is probably the best example of this, where there were characters we recognized but the setting, experience, and modern time period were completely Bryan Fuller’s (wonderfully so). “Bates Motel” has been another positive example, especially as it nears its end. The time period is again modernized, but it keeps a surreal and retro feel. And »

Longtime Voice Actress Russi Taylor on Playing Minnie Mouse and Falling for Mickey in Real Life

9 March 2017 11:34 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

You may not recognize her walking down the street, but Russi Taylor plays one of the most famous characters in the world.

Taylor has been the voice of Minnie Mouse for more than 30 years, and that’s just a fraction of voice work she’s done in her long career. She’s played Huey, Dewey, and Louie in various Disney projects, Pebbles Flintstone in “The Flintstone Comedy Show,” Pac-Baby in the “Pac-Man” TV series, “Penny Tompkins” in “The Critic,” Baby Gonzo in “Muppet Babies,” and various characters over 17 years on “The Simpsons,” among too many others to count.

She’s currently working on Disney Television Animation’s new series “Mickey and the Roadster Racers,” which brings together all of Disney’s classic characters: Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, and Pluto. In “Racers,” Minnie and Daisy exemplify female empowerment as they run a business called Happy Helpers. It airs Fridays on the Disney Channel.

28 February 2017 6:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“We are optimistic it’s going to be a strong marketplace,” said Rita Ferro, president of ad sales for the company’s Disney ABC Television, which encompasses ABC, Freeform and a suite of kids-focused cable networks.  The kids-tv market – valued at approximately $800 million in advance advertising commitments from Madison Avenue – gets underway this week, with presentations expectd from Disney as well as Viacom’s Nickelodeon. Early indicators from toy manufacturers and movie studios looks strong, added Ferro, in an interview.

The question for most TV networks will be whether they can surpass last year’s results. In 2016’s market, Disney’s kids’ properties – which include Disney Channel, Disney »

Midichlorians Return in Hilarious Star Wars Babies Animated Short

2 January 2017 9:05 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Star Wars universe is getting bigger and bigger these days, with last month bringing the new theatrical spin-off Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. With success often comes parody, and the Star Wars franchise is no different, as a new animated short debuted that has to be seen to be believed. The short is entitled Star Wars Babies, which not only shows what some iconic characters may have looked like as babies, but also what the controversial "midichlorians" may have looked like as actual characters.

This two-minute animated short comes from YouTube user "cheeksdown," who admits in the video's description that, "Disney is doing great so far with Star Wars ... let's hope they don't screw this up." The theme song is an obvious parody of the Muppet Babies animated series from the 1980s, and we see characters like Princess Leia walking her dog, Han Solo being continually squirted with a water pistol by Greedo, »
