‘Hamilton’ and forthcoming Mary Poppins Returns star Lin-,Manuel Miranda will team with Alan Menken on the planned live-action remake of The Little Mermaid. The news was confirmed at this past weekend’s Disney D23 expo in Anaheim, California.
“For the live-action Little Mermaid, I’m writing additional songs with lyrics by Hamilton and Moana songwriter Lin-Manuel Miranda,” Menken said. Miranda has been attached to the project for a little while, but his role wasn’t known, even to himself until now.

The debut trailer for Ferdinand has bulldozed its way onto the net… no this isn’t a documentary on Ex-Footballer Rio Ferdinand but a brand new animation centring on the adventure of a Bull from 20th Century Fox.
Inspired by the beloved book “The Story of Ferdinand” by Munro Leaf and Robert Lawson, Ferdinand tells the story of a bull that is softer than Andrex toilet paper. The trailer includes scenes of Ferdinand tiptoeing his way through a china shop – hence the phrase bull in a china shop – trying not to knock over plates and cups with his large frame and spectacularly failing to giving mouth to mouth resuscitation to a rabbit after he almost kills it during target practice with his fellow heard looking on unimpressed.

Since DreamWorks Animation got snapped up by Universal, it seems several films have been cancelled. So what's actually happening?
If we imagine that the acquisition of Pixar by Disney was some kind of seismic shift for the Emeryville animation house, then Dreamworks Animation, by comparison, must be living in the red-hot cradle of a hyperactive volcano.
Animated films take so long, from concept to production to release, that recent Dreamworks titles are making their eventual escape from a corporate context which bears little relation to where they were conceived.
The Croods is a particularly good example. It was, originally, going to be a stop-motion film produced at Aardman with a screenplay by John Cleese. Without it ever being cancelled outright, this project continued to evolve, as Dreamworks twisted and turned like a kaleidoscope around it, in to the final product. The plot was different. The characters were different. »
