Alan Young, ‘Mister Ed’ Star, Dies at 96

20 May 2016 2:51 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Alan Young, who gamely played straight man to a talking horse for five years in classic sitcom “Mr. Ed,” died Thursday at the Motion Picture and Television Home in Woodland Hills, Calif. He was 96.

On the series, which ran from 1961-66 on CBS, Young played architect Wilbur Post, who was married to Carol (played by Connie Hines, who died in 2009) and kept a horse, Mr. Ed, in their suburban stable. Mr. Ed, voiced by Allan “Rocky” Lane, would speak only to Wilbur, but given Mr. Ed’s rather outlandish personality and the superbly mild affect of Young’s Wilbur, just who owned whom could occasionally be a matter of debate.

Young also voiced Scrooge McDuck and numerous other animated characters, as well as guesting on dozens of TV shows.

In 2005 “Mr. Ed” won a TV Land Award for most heart-warming pet-owner interaction. Young also directed four episodes of “Mr. Ed. »

Disney to Screen Never-Seen ‘Moana’ Sequences at Annecy

22 April 2016 11:41 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Unseen artwork and work-in-progress sequences from “Moana,” produced by the Walt Disney Animation Studios, will be unveiled at June’s Annecy International Animation Film Festival, one of the world’s biggest toon events.

The sneak-peek will be presented by “Moana” directorial duo Ron Clements and John Musker, whose collaboration dates back to “The Great Mouse Detective.” Since then they have written and directed Disney titles such as “The Little Mermaid” (1989), “Aladdin” (1992), “Hercules” (1997) and “The Princess and the Frog” (2009).

CG animated feature film “Moana” follows an adventurous teenager (Moana), the chief’s only daughter, and from a family of illustrious sea wayfarers, who sails out on an intrepid journey helped by a demigod Maui (voiced by Dwayne Johnson) to prove herself a master pathfinder and save her people.

Clements and Musker will take an Annecy audience through their research on “their most ambitious production to date,” per a Disney statement.

CinemaCon Lays Foundation for 2016’s Animated Awards Race

13 April 2016 8:58 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

From a ten-minute preview of Illumination’s “The Secret Life of Pets” to a 27-minute deep dive into Pixar’s “Finding Dory,” this year’s CinemaCon is laying the groundwork for a very competitive animated feature awards race in 2016.

Warner Bros. got the ball rolling Tuesday by presenting a look at “Storks,” from writer-director Nicholas Stoller. The film, co-directed by Doug Sweetland, tells the story of, well, storks, who have transitioned from delivering babies to delivering packages. Complications ensue when an order for a baby appears. Andy Samberg stars alongside Keegan-Michael Key, Kelsey Grammer and Katie Crown.

(WB also touted the Warner Animation Group, which could land future consideration for everything from “The Lego Batman Movie” and “The Lego Movie 2” to a new spin on the world of Scooby Doo and friends.)

Sticking with avian themes, Sony Pictures Animation will be releasing “The Angry Birds Movie” later this year. On Tuesday, »

Film Review: Zootopia

1 March 2016 1:26 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Synopsis: Officer Judy Hopps (voice of Ginnifer Goodwin), the very first bunny on Zootopia’s police force, jumps at the opportunity to crack her first case—even if it means partnering with fast-talking, scam-artist fox Nick Wilde (voice of Jason Bateman) to solve the mystery.

Is Disney's 55th animated feature film the gem we all hope for when entering the theater? Does it hold up next to vaulted masterpieces like The Lion King and Aladdin? Without having a princess, or some of the more frequently used formulae, the answer is "Yes." This is a great example of Disney taking a chance, and hitting a home run.

Beginning with a great lesson for children, Zootopia screams at its audience to chase your dreams. Even in the face of family telling Hopps her dream of being a cop was unrealistic, she marches on. It is uplifting to see a film marketed toward »

5 Disney Villains Whose Origin Stories We Want to See

7 January 2016 12:00 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

With the news that Emma Stone is in talks to play Cruella de Vil in a movie exploring the character's origins - a movie pitch that presumably followed in the wake of Maleficent's success - we started thinking about some of our other favorite Disney villains whose origins we'd like to see explored in feature-length form. Ursula, from The Little Mermaid Obviously, it's just going to be called Ursula, and Colton Haynes already did the costume about as well as anyone could, so let's just give it to him. Apparently, the film's original script called for Bea Arthur to voice the character, »
