Disney Animation Welcomes Ginnifer Goodwin & Jason Bateman To Zootopia

6 May 2015 6:13 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Walt Disney Animation Studios has announced the addition of Ginnifer Goodwin and Jason Bateman to Zootopia, Disney’s 2016 animated feature set in a modern mammal metropolis. Goodwin (ABC’s “Once Upon a Time,” “Something Borrowed,” “Walk the Line”) will lend her voice to an optimistic bunny named Judy Hopps who’s new to Zootopia’s police department.

Jason Bateman (“Horrible Bosses 2,” “This is Where I Leave You”) voices the scamming fox, Nick Wilde, who Judy reluctantly teams up with to crack her first case.

“We knew that ‘Zootopia’ would only succeed if we found the perfect actors to play our main characters,” said director Byron Howard (“Tangled,” “Bolt”). “This rabbit- and fox-duo are in practically every scene in the film together. After meeting Ginnifer, we knew she embodied Hopps, the ultimate pure-of-heart, idealist bunny. You fall in love with her character instantly. And for Nick Wilde, our cynical con-artist fox, »

Dan in Real Life: Fogelman’s Sugary Directorial Debut Hobbles its Own Charms

Screenwriter and producer Dan Fogelman makes a high profile directorial debut with Danny Collins, nabbing a handful of high profile names to lead his glossy family issue drama wrapped in melodramatic showbiz antics. When he’s not writing directly for children and family friendly audiences (Cars; Bolt; Tangled), Fogelman’s screenplays are often gilded with jejunish countenances (The Guilt Trip; Last Vegas), the types of outrageous yet uncomplicated cinematic fabrications that hail from some medicated hinterland beyond the realm of mere escapism. His first stint as a director finds him returning to this hypertrophic mode of drama wherein potentially insurmountable life tragedies get mushed together to equal one big positive, though kernels of authentic emotions sometimes shine through the contrivances.

Danny Collins (Al Pacino) is an aging rock star currently touring with another greatest hits album. »

Walt Disney Animation Studios also reveals UK release date.

Zootopia, the next feature to be released by Walt Disney Animation Studios, has been renamed Zootropolis for its UK release.

A spokesman for Disney explained: “In the UK we decided to change the Us title (Zootopia) to Zootropolis to merely allow the film to have a unique title that works for UK audiences.”

Disney also revealed that the animated feature will receive its UK theatrical release on March 25, 2016. It is set for Us release on March 4, 2016.

The film is based in the animal city of Zootopia, where optimistic new police officer Judy Hopps discovers that being the first rabbit on a force of big, tough animals isn’t so easy.

Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde, to solve the mystery.

The comedy adventure is directed by Byron Howard ([link »

Co-Director Chris Williams Talks Big Hero 6; Will There Be A Sequel?

17 February 2015 6:10 PM, PST | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Walt Disney Animation's Big Hero 6 ended up being the surprise Cbm hit of 2014 for many people. In addition to nabbing an Oscar nod for 'Best Animated Feature', it has also raked in over $500 million at the Box Office - making it Disney's third highest grossing animated movie ever (only trailing Frozen and The Lion King). The film's co-director Chris Williams (Bolt) and Disney Animation president Andrew Millstein recently sat down with Variety to chat about the film's success. In the interview, Millstein praised Disney's new approach to filmmaking, and the decision to focus on "elevating storytelling and putting filmmakers in the center of the process". This tactic has clearly reaped huge rewards for the studio, having first topped the global box office in 2013 with Frozen, and then producing another hit in Big Hero 6 just a year later. "The change was about the Pixar team sharing ideas with us, »

Watch: Featurette on Making of the Adorable Disney Short 'Feast'

16 February 2015 3:10 PM, PST | | See recent news »

If you saw Disney's animated superhero flick Big Hero 6 last year, then you've already seen the adorable short film that preceded it from the feature's co-head of animation, Patrick Wilson (no, not the actor). Feast was a lovely, charming tale of a Boston terrier named Winston through whom we see various stages of his owner’s life, specifically at meal time. It's a unique perspective for the short story, and it's greatly affecting and moving. Now Disney has released a quick making of featurette that's just over a minute long as to how the story went from storyboard to pre-visualization to final animation. There's even footage of a real Boston terrier used as reference for the animators. We'd love to see more of the process though. Watch now! Here's the making-of featurette for Walt Disney Animation's short Feast from Variety: Big Hero 6 is co-directed by Don Hall (Winnie the Pooh »

Big Hero 6 review: Disney superhero tale has heart and spectacle

30 January 2015 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Don Hall, Chris Williams; Screenwriters: Jordan Roberts, Dan Gerson, Robert L Baird; Starring: Ryan Potter, Scott Adsit, Jamie Chung, Tj Miller, Genesis Rodriguez, Damon Wayans Jr; Running time: 108 mins; Certificate: PG

Disney mines the Marvel Comics back catalogue for its latest animation Big Hero 6, a delightfully entertaining East/West genre blend that's a neat addition to the ever-expanding superhero genre. Think of it as an Avengers aimed at tweens.

The story takes place in the fictional future city of San Fransokyo where Hiro (Ryan Potter), a 14-year-old tech whizz, and his brother Tadashi (Daniel Henney) live with their Aunt Cass (Maya Rudolph). Hiro is directionless and constantly running into trouble, but through his older brother he begins to develop his interest in robotics.

Baymax, a rotund vinyl-clad healthcare android, is Tadashi's prize invention. Able to scan a patient for illness and injury and treat them, he comically waddles »

Watch: Did You See the 'Frozen' Easter Eggs in Disney's 'Big Hero 6'?

6 January 2015 1:28 PM, PST | | See recent news »

It's no secret that Disney loves putting easter eggs referencing their previous films in all their animated projects, and Big Hero 6 is no exception. And since the production of Frozen overlapped with the Marvel comic book adaptation, there are a few little nods to the monstrous musical hit in the film. Of course, there are many more easter eggs to be found in the film outside of Frozen, and you'll be able to track them all down when the film hits Digital HD & Disney's Movies Anywhere service on February 3rd followed by the Blu-ray Combo Pack on February 24th. But for now, check out the Frozen easter eggs in the video below! Here's the Frozen easter eggs from Disney's Big Hero 6 from Disney Anywhere: However, I have a feeling there's more, since there's also this Frozen easter egg as well. Big Hero 6 is co-directed by Don Hall »
