Before George Lucas sold Lucasfilm to Disney he was producing an animated feature film called Strange Magic. The movie is based on an original idea from Lucas, and it's a fairy tale musical that was inspired by A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The story follows a “colorful cast of goblins, elves, fairies and imps, and their hilarious misadventures sparked by the battle over a powerful potion.”
The movie was directed by Gary Rydstrom (Toy Story‘s Hawaiian Vacation), and today we have the first trailer for you to watch. This is definitely geared more towards kids, but it still looks like a lot of fun.
The movie features the voice talent of Alan Cumming, Evan Rachel Wood, Kristin Chenoweth, Maya Rudolph, Sam Palladio, Alfred Molina, Elijah Kelley, Bob Einstein, Peter Stormare, and Meredith Anne Bull.
Strange Magic will open in theaters on January 23rd, 2015.

Lucasfilm is getting into the CG animation game, and the company’s first film, directed by Gary Rydstrom (Lifted, Toy Story‘s Hawaiian Vacation) from a story by George Lucas, is a musical inspired by A Midsummer Night’s Dream and (if the tunes are anything to go by) the teen culture of the ’50s and ’60s. The […]

Riley's really going through a lot lately, what with her family's move from the Midwest to San Francisco, and "Inside Out" is a firsthand look at all the emotions she's struggling with inside her head.
Disney and Pixar released some super short teasers to introduce each of Riley's anthropomorphized feelings, and frankly? They're freaking adorable.
Here's Sadness, voiced by Phyllis Smith.
Ugh! Meet Disgust, voiced by Mindy Kaling.
Lewis Black is the voice of anger. Adults will get why this is funny.
Fear is voiced by Bill Hader.
And here's a teaser with all of them, which includes Amy Poehler as Joy. Yes, please!

If you’re a big fan of Disney Pixar’s Toy Story franchise, this has been a great couple of weeks.

We’ve got the first details and a piece of concept art for you here. The hotel is slated to be one of the places guests at the new Disneyland Shanghai can stay.

Is it Pixar News Day and no-one sent us the memo? Between new Inside Out posters, a teaser for Toy Story That Time Forgot and now this fresh information on The Good Dinosaur, it’s feeling like the Emeryville team and their Disney partners were waiting to spring it all on us at once. Still, it appears to be good news for Dinosaur, as co-director Peter Sohn is officially in charge of the movie.There was somewhat natural consternation when director Bob Peterson was removed from the film over creative challenges, with word that the film was to be delayed until 2015. Which explained why it was Sohn and producer Denise Ream who turned up to promote the film at Disney’s D23 in August of last year, as the company scrambled to make it better.Now Sohn is promoted to full director for his feature debut (he’s worked in the art, »
On early glimpses, next year promises something special and healthily original from Toy Story studio Pixar, with Pete Docter’s Inside Out arriving in cinemas. Some footage has already premiered, but here you can get up close and personal with the film’s main characters. Inside Out is the story of a little girl called Riley, an 11 year-old who has moved with her family to San Francisco. More specifically, however, the focus is in her mind, exploring how memories are formed and how a mixture of five emotions – Joy (Amy Poehler), Disgust (Mindy Kaling), Anger (Lewis Black), Fear (Bill Hader) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith) – define her life experiences.The character designs here are great: simple but evocative and with a lot of thought out into them. Plus Pixar’s reputation for casting great voice talent appears firmly intact. We’ve seen a little more of the film than has been generally released, »

We've got two teasers for you, one brand new 15 second one that's fresh off the vine and another 30 second number that dates back a few weeks.

Earlier this month we learned that Disney and Pixar we developing a Toy Story 4 film that will be released in 2017. It looks like Disney has a big reason to keep the Toy Story franchise alive, as they are currently planning to build a gigantic Toy Story themed hotel. Unfortunately for me and a lot of other fans out there, it's being built on the grounds at Shanghai Disneyland Resort, which is scheduled to open in 2016. I don't think I'll ever find myself in Shanghai, so this will most likely be a hotel I never visit, and that makes me sad.
The news comes from The Disney Insider Blog, who also offered a piece of concept art showing us how awesome the hotel is going to look. As you can see, the exterior is based on the classic wallpaper from Andy's bedroom, and the classic Pixar ball is in the center of the entrance. »

All good things come to an end. After months of exciting movie news that has the rest of the decade looking incredibly exciting (go Marvel), last week brought us something that made the future a little less brighter – Pixar are making Toy Story 4.
We’re not saying Pixar are destroying our childhood, but they’re certainly giving it their best shot. Coming in 2017, the film will answer that burning question no one asked of how Woody and Buzz are getting on in their new digs. Little is known about the film, beyond a few of the key players involved – John Lasseter, director of Toy Story and Toy Story 2, will be at the helm, with Rashida Jones and Will McCormack on writing duties – but as things stand it’ll take something incredible to make this movie seem like a worthwhile endeavour.

James Newton Howard is best known for his large, layered, cinematic scores for films like Maleficent, Snow White and the Huntsman, and The Hunger Games series. These orchestra driven scores are perfect for epic tales of good versus evil, intense battle scenes and journeys of self-discovery. But in Nightcrawler, Howard seems to have found his more edgy, electronic side, turning in a score that sounds more like something you would expect from a composer like Cliff Martinez – and that’s a good thing. Changing up your musical style not only helps push boundaries, it can also give us great music we may not have otherwise expected from certain composers. Danny Elfman created the quirky music for films like Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, and Big Fish, but he also created the dramatic scores for Good Will Hunting and Silver Linings Playbook and action films like Mission Impossible and Planet of the Apes.

Patience is a very important skillset for a film buff, as Hollywood often leaves fans waiting for more for years -- even decades.
Nearly twenty years after audiences were first introduced to the dim-witted duo of Harry and Lloyd, fans are finally getting a sequel to Dumb and Dumber. With Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey reprising their roles as the titular idiots and the Farrelly Bros.’ stepping behind the camera to direct Dumb and Dumber To, audiences will no doubt be chomping at the bit to take another bite out of a classic comedy gold.
Starting with the shortest wait and leading up to the longest, here’s a rundown of some of the longest-awaited sequels of all time.
American Reunion (2012) - 9 years
When we were first introduced to the pubescent pastry-procreating protagonists of American Pie, they had barely graduated high school. Fast-forward thirteen years, however, and they’re all grown up with jobs, »

Last week Disney announced that Toy Story 4 is on the way, and accordingly, everyone lost their minds. The Toy Story franchise is Pixar's most successful series of all time, not mention being highly critically acclaimed. Whether you're a kid or an adult, chances are you've seen - and either laughed or cried at - the movies. In honor of the news, we've rounded up 99 GIFs of moments that are funny, heartbreaking, and everything in between. Take a look below, and just try to tell me you didn't sob during at least one of these moments. »
Ten years ago this month, Brad Bird's animated adventure film The Incredibles debuted—and with its winning, funny story about a married pair of washed-up superheroes trying to raise kids and save the world at the same time, it immediately joined the canon of Disney/Pixar insta-classics. Almost exactly one decade later, Disney released Big Hero 6, another story about a team of animated heroes. It's not hard to spot connections between the two: They share similar color schemes and aesthetics, for example, and they both feature a titular group of crime-fighters trying to get (or regain) a grip »
