Newswire: Never mind, the live-action Mulan might still be a musical

23 March 2017 9:50 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Okay, forgive the emotional whiplash, but now it seems that Disney’s live-action adaptation of Mulan just might featuring singing. Or not. Let’s just say, it’s unclear at this point. What we do know is that director Niki Caro is walking back the comment she made that it has “no songs right now.” While that sounds fairly self-explanatory, Caro is now arguing it was misconstrued. Basically, at this point she has no idea whether the movie will incorporate Matthew Wilder and David Zippel’s catchy tunes from the 1998 animated version. ”We’ve never talked about songs, and no decision has been made,” she explained in an interview with the Los Angeles Times.

For what it’s worth, the studio’s now incredibly successful Beauty And The Beast remake wasn’t going to be a musical but then Frozen came along and turned phenomenon. Given the fervor over ...

Disney's Live-Action Mulan May Include Music After All

23 March 2017 5:45 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Mulan without music? As Mushu said in the 1998 animated feature, "That's it! Dishonor! Dishonor on your whole family! Dishonor on you. Dishonor on your cow..." (You get the idea.) Much to the delight of fans, Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures is developing a live-action adaptation of the hit movie. But, over the weekend, those same fans went into a frenzy after Niki Caro told Moviefone the new version—slated for release on Nov. 2, 2018—will not include any music. "From what I understand, no songs right now," she said, "much to the horror of my children." The director did elicit some excitement from fans when described the new Mulan as a "big, girly martial arts epic. It »

31 Things Only Diehard Beauty and the Beast Fans Know

19 March 2017 1:30 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Image Source: Everett Collection Beauty and the Beast is one of Disney's most timeless classics, but there's a lot about the animated film that you might not have realized. For instance, do you know exactly what kind of animal the Beast was based on? Or his real name? The reboot is absolutely gorgeous and has a few interesting updates, but for now, let's revisit all of the interesting tidbits that make the 1991 film so great. Jackie Chan dubbed the voice of the Beast for Chinese-speaking countries. He provided vocals for both the Beast's speaking and singing parts! Chip originally had only one line. The producers liked 9-year-old actor Bradley Pierce's voice so much that they asked to expand the role. He also wasn't supposed to be a teacup. Early drawings of the character saw him as a music box who could only communicate by his chiming musical notes. Belle's »

9 Things You Never Knew About Disney's Mulan

21 February 2017 5:00 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Almost 20 years later - yes, 20 years (cries into pillow) - a live-action version of Mulan is in the works with director Niki Caro at the helm. The original animation is extremely empowering to women, so it's awesome that a female will be behind the lens, controlling our favorite childhood warrior princess's portrayal this time around. As we await our modernized heroine, and her potentially CGI-animated companions Mushu and Cri-Kee, we can look back fondly on the Disney original - because let's be real, we all still revert back to our 7-year-old Capri Sun-loving selves when "I'll Make a Man Out Of You" comes on Pandora. Now that we know when the reimagined film will premiere, let's take a look at nine facts you probably never knew about Disney's first Asian princess and Og girl-power-charged badass. The story of Mulan was originally a folk song. The legend of Mulan was derived from "The Ballad of Mulan, »

‘NCIS: La’ Will Pay Tribute to Miguel Ferrer

1 February 2017 6:17 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

NCIS: Los Angeles” will pay tribute to the late actor Miguel Ferrer next March. Ferrer, who starred for seven seasons on the CBS drama, died last month at the age of 61 of throat cancer.

The March 5 episode of “NCIS: Los Angeles” will feature a version of the Bob Dylan song “Knocking on Heaven’s Door” performed by Ferrer’s band the Jenerators and sung by Ferrer. A title card remembering Ferrer will be displayed at the episode’s end.

Ferrer was the son of singer Rosemary Clooney and actor Jose Ferrer, and also first cousin to George Clooney.

In memoriam: Miguel Ferrer

20 January 2017 1:58 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Jan 20, 2017

We're sad to report that American actor Miguel Ferrer has died at the age of 61.

One of America's great character actors, Miguel Ferrer has died at the age of 61, we're sorry to announce. Many will remember him for his signature turn as Bob Morton in the 1987 classic RoboCop: the slick, ambitious Ocp executive who creates the film's title law enforcer and inadvertently gets on the wrong side of the villainous Dick Jones (Ronny Cox).

That film was but one stand-out in an immensely busy career: through the 1980s, brief roles in such shows as Magnum Pi and Cagney & Lacey eventually led to his recurring part as FBI agent Albert Rosenfield in David Lynch's brilliantly surreal thriller series, Twin Peaks. Ferrer reprised the role in Lynch's 1992 film spin-off Fire Walk With Me, and returned once again as Rosenfeld in the first episode of the Twin Peaks revival series. »
