Disney was indeed looking into making Tangled 2, its producer confirms. But there's a simple reason why it never happened...
This story contains a spoiler for Tangled.
For the past few years, as Walt Disney Animation Studios has continued its remarkable run of recent success, rumours of sequels to its films have gathered momentum.
The last 'official' sequel Disney made to one of its classic line of animated features was The Rescuers Down Under, that was released way back in 1990. Of course, there's the dozens of mainly straight to DVD sequels that infected stores throughout the 1990s and 2000s, but they were the work of a separate part of Disney.
However, we keep hearing word of Wreck-It Ralph 2 and Frozen 2, both of which are believed to be in development. And once upon a time, there was chat of a follow-up to Walt Disney Animation Studio's 50th animated feature, 2010's Tangled.
This is the second collaboration between Jackman and Margeson, who had worked previously on Jeff Wadlow’s Kick Ass 2.
The duo have taken on the star-studded Kingsman with Oscar winners Colin Firth and Michael Caine, Oscar nominee Samuel L. Jackson, and newcomer Taron Egerton. Based on a comic book by Mark Millar, the story follows a veteran secret agent (Firth) who takes a young protégé (Egerton) under his wing.
The score album will be released on La La Land Records, February 17, 2015.
Jackman and Margeson’s score for Kingsman delivers nail biting action sequences while emphasizing the heart of the film which lie in the relationship between Firth and Egerton. The deep brass notes exemplify the grandeur of the secret society and the »

Big Hero 6 is more Walt Disney Animation Studios' film than a Marvel flick - at least for most of its running time. And that's no bad thing.
Loneliness has been a growing thread in the last few films from Walt Disney Animation Studios. And whilst, at first glance, Big Hero 6 is a very different turn that's been taken, it bears some familiar themes, explored from a different perspective.
If Wreck-It Ralph, then, gave us the extraordinary Vanellope von Schweetz (still probably my favourite new Disney character of recent times) and Frozen homed in on two sisters torn apart, Big Hero 6 turns to a boy genius by the name of Hiro. Courtesy of an impressive opening sequence, it's clear that Hiro is a young man schooled in BBC 2's Robot Wars, as he takes his latest invention into a robot battle, with his 'bots' emerging victorious.

For some time now Disney Animation Studios have been racking up hit after hit with some wonderful CGI animated features. Tangled started the ball rolling, then came Wreck-It Ralph which continued the studios new ascent to greatness and when nobody refused to let Frozen go (sorry) the studio had well and truly found it’s new computer generated feet. If you thought things couldn’t get much better than a talking snowman, think again, as Big Hero 6 is the greatest animated movie you'll see this year. Following the story of Hiro, who, after his brother dies in a tragic fire,develops a special bond with an inflatable medical droid called Baymax. Together they build an inseparable bond and form a band of high-tech heroes. Loosely based on the Marvel comic, Big Hero 6 should go straight to the top of your must see movies of 2015. There is very little »

Snoot Entertainment, the production company behind You're Next, The Guest and Charlie Kaufman's upcoming animated film Anomalisa, announced today that they have optioned Don Hertzfeldt's script for Antarctica, an animated, genre-defying adventure which explores the world's coldest continent. The film will also be directed by Hertzfeldt drawing on his signature visual style. Snoot Entertainment's Keith Calder and Jessica Calder will produce along with Hertzfeldt. Hertzfeldt's manager Jeremy Platt will executive-produce and Snoot's Roxanne Benjamin will co-produce.
Hertzfeldt is premiering his new short film World of Tomorrow during the opening night of the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. With World of Tomorrow as his seventh short film in competition, he has had more films play in competition at Sundance than any other filmmaker. Other projects Hertzfeldt has helmed include the Academy Award nominated cult favorite Rejected, and Everything Will Be Ok, which was awarded the 2007 Sundance Film Festival Jury Award in Short Filmmaking. »
Paramount Pictures has pushed its spy comedy Grimsby from its originally-slated July 31, 2015 release date to February 26, 2016. The spy comedy starring Sacha Baron Cohen was set to go up against Warner Bros. Point Break remake, Focus Features' Selfless and The Weinstein Company's Southpaw on July 31, 2015. Now it will face Paramount's Ben-Hur remake next winter.
Grimsby centers on a British secret agent (Mark Strong) who is forced to go into hiding in his hometown with his dim-witted soccer hooligan brother (Sacha Baron Cohen). Penélope Cruz also stars as a benevolent corporate leader who is hiding a secret. Annabelle Wallis, Rebel Wilson, David Harewood, Ian McShane, Gabourey Sidibe, Johnny Vegas and Isla Fisher round out the supporting cast.
Exclusive: There’s no question that Walt Disney Animation Studios is on a tear. After last year’s enormous worldwide box office phenomenon and double Oscar winner Frozen, it was thought ‘How do you top this?’ But although Disney’s great awards’ hope this year, Big Hero 6 from directors Don Hall and Chris Williams, is in no way “topping” the success of Frozen, it has proven to be a major player in its own right. It has nominations from several groups including the Annies and this weekend’s upcoming PGA Awards as well as BAFTA and, of course, the Oscars as Best Animated Feature. That race has gotten a lot more interesting since the nominations revealed a big snub for presumed frontrunner The Lego Movie, which was left off the list (though it did get a Best Song nod).
Disney believes Big Hero 6 is very much in play, »
