Asked whether she had ever been mistreated in her career, Boyle told The Hollywood Reporter, “Oh, all the time! All the time! It happens all the time.”
“I looked at it on two levels: Do I want to flip burgers, or do I want to put up with someone not being appropriate with me? I chose the other side,” the 47-year-old actress continued.
The Hollywood Reporter reveals that these deleted scenes all featured the dialogue recordings by the voice actors, although they weren't fully animated, only showcased in storyboard form.

An interesting thing to consider about the story itself is that Simba is being trained by his father to one day succeed him as King. This connection with a parent and this effort towards being prepared to rule is entirely absent from any of the Disney Princess films.
Of course, the movie is a wildly entertaining musical which
Is one of the world’s biggest pop stars set to lend her vocals to the upcoming remake of The Lion King? If Disney gets their wish it looks very likely as news from Variety suggests Beyonce is the first choice to voice Nala in Jon Favreau’s new version of the classic animation.
There is no official deal just yet but the singer is director Favreau’s first choice for the role, which would see her take over the role from Moira Kelly and Sally Dworsky, who voiced and sung in the 1994 film. If she takes the role, she would join Donald Glover (Han Solo), who voices Simba, and James Earl Jones who returns to play Mufasa.

The anniversary seems especially meaningful today because those same fans are wondering what will become of Showtime's planned Twin Peaks revival. On Sunday, series creator and surrealism purveyor David Lynch announced on Facebook that he had chosen not to direct the new Twin Peaks as a result of payment disputes. However, he cautioned that "Twin Peaks may still be alive on Showtime.

For others it was the mythical buried reels of The Wicker Man, which rather ludicrously had been rumoured for years to be buried in the concrete foundations of an English motorway.

Even in a pre-internet, pre-dvd extras age, I obsessed over this rumoured material and what possible insights it may offer into Lynch’s labyrinthian mystery. And now, thanks to the Twin Peaks: The Entire Mystery Blu-ray set, they are finally here. So how do they stack up? What do they tell us?
