Tweeks: Disney’s Hunchback Takes to the Stage

18 December 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

As big theater & Disney Geeks, there’s little better than a Broadway-bound Disney musical and so The Tweeks couldn’t miss the U.S. Premiere of The Hunchback of Notre Dame at the La Jolla Playhouse.  Before it hits the East Coast at The Paper Mill Playhouse this Spring, on it’s way the Great White Way, find out what to expect from this Alan Menken (The Little Mermaid, Newsies, Beauty And The Beast, we could go on for days with this man’s composer credits) & Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin, Enchanted) collaboration based on the entertaining, but hardly classic 1996 animated film.  With a story split half and half between the cartoon feature and the Victor Hugo book, this is a more serious, dark and depressing Disney venture definitely made for a more mature audience. It’s like Maleficent compared to Sleeping Beauty.  We like to call it Les Mis starring Flynn Ryder. »

Watch 'Nashville' Stars Clare Bowen and Sam Palladio Sing "Beauty and the Beast"

12 December 2014 3:26 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Playing aspiring singer-songwriters-turned-lovers-turned-friends, Nashville's Clare Bowen and Sam Palladio regularly perform together on ABC's hit musical drama. So when it came time to find a male and female lead to sing "Beauty and the Beast" for a behind-the-scenes special about the creation of Disney's eight Broadway musicals, including the long-running Broadway version of the studio's hit animated movie, the show's director thought he found the perfect pair when he was watching Nashville, an idea that the show's production team quickly liked. "We were looking for something that felt a little unexpected, and

This Awesome Little Girl at Disney World Schooled Gaston for Being Sexist

9 December 2014 10:45 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The best part of Disney World is that the actors never break character. You’re never going to hear Cruella de Vil talk about how much she loves puppies, or see Captain Hook sending Snapchats to Peter Pan.

Which makes this encounter between a little girl named Isabella and Gaston from Beauty and the Beast that much better. It starts when Gaston points out Isabella’s name is similar to the aforementioned beauty, bragging, “My girl’s name is Belle. She’s going to marry me today.”

Isabella was having none of it:

YouTube

News: Find out why 2014 was the most Frozen-y year yet!

Which is when Gaston busts out his best misogynistic, Gaston-y banter: “I don’t know where this girl came from, but somebody needs to put her back in the kitchen right now," he quips. Which only riled this little feminist up even more.

YouTube

That’s when the real schooling starts. In the end »

This Awesome Little Girl Gives Disney's Gaston a Piece of Her Mind

8 December 2014 1:57 PM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

It's safe to say Isabella is not a fan of Beauty and the Beast's Gaston, and when she met him at Walt Disney World in Florida, she wasn't afraid to say so. She told Gaston time and time again that Beast was her favorite, and when Gaston tried to talk smack about Beast, she wasn't very happy about it, snapping, "You're not marrying Belle!" For his part, Gaston stays true to his character, telling her that since she's a woman, she belongs in the kitchen. Yikes. Watch the pair hilariously hash it out, then check out more can't-miss viral videos, including the top 10 viral videos of the year! »

“I See It More as a Visual Poem”: Animator Glen Keane on the Interactive Film Duet

8 December 2014 8:30 AM, PST | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

Glen Keane made me want to make movies. As a head animator at Disney from the 1970s until just a few years ago, when he left to create his own company, Keane created iconic characters like Ariel, Aladdin, and Tarzan, plus gorgeously drawn animals like the bear in The Fox and the Hound and the eagle Marahute in The Rescuers Down Under. But what held me spellbound was the moment when the Beast — his character — and James Baxter’s Belle walked into the computer-animated ballroom during the title song of Beauty and the Beast: I’d never seen anything like that before, and I […] »

Jeffrey Katzenberg interview: Penguins, DreamWorks, universes

1 December 2014 12:15 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The boss of DreamWorks Animation, Jeffrey Katzenberg, on too many blockbusters, 20 years of DreamWorks, Marvel, and Penguins....

It's been 20 years since DreamWorks Animation set up its stall, originally as part of the broader DreamWorks Skg project, but since splintering out on its own. One of the constants in that time has been the man heading it up: Jeffrey Katzenberg. Having overseen animation at Disney from the mid-1980s through the second golden era for the studio in the early 1990s, his company has made 30 animated films.

Here, he chats to us about film 30, The Penguins Of Madagascar, as well as the state of the business, the changing face of animation, and his fears for 2016...

Let's start with The Penguins Of Madagascar. I'd argue that the Madagascar films to date make for about the best comedy trilogy of recent times. I'd take them over The Hangover for a start...

[Laughs] Alright!

Oscar Best Picture: What’s Wrong With Well-Crafted Entertainment?

26 November 2014 6:37 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

What do voters have against movies that are well-made — and also as entertaining as hell?

Among this year’s typically serious and/or weighty crop of frontrunners, there are at least three dramas set during wartime (“Unbroken,” “American Sniper” and “The Imitation Game”) and a slew of biopics (all three of the previously mentioned films, “Selma,” “The Theory of Everything” and “Wild.”) All of these films, along with “Foxcatcher,” are based on true stories.

But can’t Oscar make room for some titles that represent exceedingly well-crafted fun? While a “District 9” might slip in from time to time, odds are fairly slim that “Guardians of the Galaxy,” a film that critics and audiences adored, will sneak into the best picture noms. Over at Rotten Tomatoes, “Guardians” is sitting pretty with a 90% fresh rating, higher than many frontrunners (“Theory of Everything”: 82%, “Imitation Game”: 84%, “Foxcatcher”: 85%.) The film was »

5 reasons why 'How to Train Your Dragon 2' should be nominated for Best Picture Oscar

24 November 2014 6:48 PM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

There are a boy and his dragon who deserve to have a safe landing among the Oscar nominees for Best Picture. Sure, "How to Train Your Dragon 2" will be nominated for Best Animated Feature, but it's worthy of much higher academy consideration, too. Here are my five reasons why: 1. Three in 87 years? Come on! Twenty-two years ago "Beauty and the Beast" made history by being the first animated feature to score a Best Picture Oscar nomination. Eighteen years later -- and only after the Academy decided to up its Best Picture nominations from five to as many as 10 -- "Up" pulled off the same feat along with "Toy Story 3" the following year (2011). Those are just three animated films in the Oscar's 87-year history that have managed to squeak into the ultimate awards category. If Oscar is paying attention, this year we should see another added to that exclusive »

Childhood Memories: ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’

21 November 2014 8:24 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

We all have holiday traditions. Growing up in Western Pennsylvania, then Central Ohio, then Western Pennsylvania again, we had more than a few Christmas ones. Every Christmas morning, we weren’t allowed to open a single present until my father finished his coffee. And he took his time. When he finally gulped down the last swallow, we were still required to open present at a time. None of this chaotic ripping into boxes and bags simultaneously while no one paid any attention to anything anyone else opened. We all watched each other one-by-one open a gift, thank the giver, and look to the next person in the circle to take his or her turn.

Outside of those Christmas Day traditions, we had one Christmas Eve tradition that was never, ever, Ever under consideration for alteration. Every year, we’d go to church for the 45-60 minute evening service (in our second stint in Pennsylvania, »

7 Things You Didn’t Know About 'The Little Mermaid'

17 November 2014 3:19 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

How many wonders can one cavern hold?

It's been 25 years since The Little Mermaid has been a part of our world and in honor of the film's silver anniversary we're revealing seven "treasures untold" about the Disney classic.

Watch: Secrets of 'The Lion King' Revealed

Etonline

7. I spy Mickey Mouse and friends!

In the opening scene when Ariel's father King Triton arrives at the arena, you can briefly see Mickey Mouse, Goofy and Donald Duck in the crowd of sea-people. Don't blink because you might miss them!

6."Part of Your World" was almost cut from the movie.

Ariel almost lost her big solo number after the song didn't test well with children in early screenings. Thankfully, another screening was set up and was a greater success with an adult audience. Could you imagine the film without that song?

5. Was Prince Eric related to Sleeping Beauty?

The Tried-and-True Formula for Real Disney Magic

17 November 2014 12:15 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

We’ve all felt it — that innate sense of happy that comes from consuming anything Disney. A vanilla ice cream bar with a chocolate coating tastes like vanilla ice cream with a chocolate coating. At least, until you mold it into the shape of Mickey Mouse’s face, then it tastes like a a smiling, satisfied inner child. We may never be able to explain the ice cream part (either it’s because Mickey Mouse-shaped ice cream is only sold in Disney Parks, or because they’re lacing the vanilla with heroin) but we can at least explain how it works with Disney movies. What is it about a Disney film that so consistently gives us the warm and fuzzies? Is it just nostalgia? Well, yes and no. If we look to the Disney films of the late ’80s through the ’90s — commonly referred to as the Disney Renaissance – a pattern emerges. A »

Soundtracking: Disney's Top 10 Greatest Songs

16 November 2014 9:05 PM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

 

It was 25 years ago today that Disney’s The Little Mermaid hit theatres, rejuvenating a slumbering animation giant and igniting a new era for the studio that would produce some of its greatest and most beloved hits. The Little Mermaid  -- on sale at the Cineplex Store for its anniversary! -- also featured dazzling songs from Alan Menkenand Howard Ashman, helping set a high musical bar for the films that would follow in its wake.

In honour of the film’s anniversary, we are pleased to present a list of the Top 10 Disney songs of all-time.

In the interest of fairness, only one song was chosen per film and the list is restricted to films from Disney Animation Studios.

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 »

Celebrate 25 Years of The Little Mermaid with 25 Things Even Superfans May Not Know

The Little Mermaid, the movie that launched Disney's animated renaissance, premiered 25 years ago this Nov. 15. That might seem hard to believe for those of us who caught it in theaters, but we've had a quarter-century of snarfblats and dinglehoppers since then. In honor of the film's silver anniversary, we're presenting a list of things that you might not know about The Little Mermaid, even if you were one of those kids who wore out your VHS copy. 1.

'The Little Mermaid' Facts: 25 Things You Didn't Know About the Disney Masterpiece

14 November 2014 1:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Hard to imagine, but there was a time, before the release of "The Little Mermaid," when even Disney's own studio chief didn't expect much from the movie because it was a "girl's film." But Jeffrey Katzenberg was happy to be proved wrong when the film was released 25 years ago this week (on November 17, 1989).

"The Little Mermaid" was not only an enormous critical and commercial success, but it also launched a creative renaissance in Disney's animated features (including such modern classics as "Beauty and the Beast" and "The Lion King") and a wave of princess-mania that continues to this day.

Still, as many times as you or your kids have watched "Little Mermaid" (probably many, many, many times), there's a lot you may not know about it, including who almost starred in it, who the characters were drawn to look like, and what was really up with that scene of the bishop with the bulging pants. »

To para-phrase John Melloncamp’s classic tune, here’s “A little ditty ’bout Jake and Ella”. Or to be more concise, here’s a wonderful, imaginative feature animated film from the warped pencil of cartooning master Bill Plympton. He’s the man who directed the Oscar nominated shorts “Your Face ” and “Guard Dog” and went on to full-length features like The Tune and I Married A Strange Person. Well, he’s at it again with a story of two star-crossed lovers who meet on a fateful day at the carnival’s bumper car ride. Ella is a vision  who hovers over the ground in a bright yellow flowing dress and bonnet with ribbons that leave a pink trail, her “kewpie doll’-like face, »
