Disney has shared a new trailer for their upcoming Disney+ streaming service and it’s over 3-hours long! I don’t know if you want to spend over three hours seeing what Disney+ has to offer when it launches, but you have the option!

Disney+ also posted all of the films and TV shows coming to the streaming service on a super long Twitter thread, which I included below the trailer. As you’ll see there’s a ton of stuff that will be available that will make Disney fans happy. Gargoyles and several other classic 90s animated series are among them along with a lot of old weird films that have been pulled out of the Disney vault.

‘Flight of the Navigator: Limited Edition’ Blu-ray Review (Second Sight)

  • Nerdly
Stars: Joey Cramer, Paul Reubens, Cliff De Young, Veronica Cartwright, Sarah Jessica Parker, Matt Adler, Howard Hesseman | Written by Michael Burton, Matt MacManus | Directed by Randal Kleiser

I grew up with Flight of the Navigator. It’s always been one of my favourite movies. A family sci-fi adventure film that kinda fell under the radar to some degree and has since become a cult classic. It’s charming, it’s funny, it’s nostalgic as hell and it’s incredibly entertaining, so I was completely and utterly on board when Second Sight announced their upcoming Blu-ray release. A limited edition release with special features, extra goodies and a new transfer? Fans are very happy. I had a chance to take a look at the blu-ray release and here are my thoughts on it, as well as my opinions, all these years later, on the film itself.

The film was directed by Randal Kleiser,

Phoenix Fan Fusion Special Guest Highlights

We are only one week away from Phoenix Fan Fusion, formerly known as Phoenix Comic Con, and the guests and schedules are really coming together to make it an awesome year! There are pages and pages of special guests listed on the Phoenix Fan Fusion website, but I have highlighted my favorite guests below that I’ll be hoping to see!

First off, we’ve got Paul Reubens, that’s right, Pee-wee Herman himself will be in attendance. The guy who has played Pee-wee for over the last 30 years, as well as voiced major characters like Max in Flight of the Navigator, and Rx-24 in the old Star Tours ride at Disney parks has been in so many things we never even knew besides the things we love him for. I’m partial to Pee-wee’s Big Adventure, but he was also in all the other Pee-wee projects, as well as Batman Returns,

A New Ghostbusters 3 Rumor Says The Main Characters Will Be Kids; Will This Be an Amblin-Style Movie?

This has been an exciting week for Ghostbusters fans! We learned that Jason Reitman was set to direct to direct a new sequel that will connect to the first two original films. Then we got an awesome teaser trailer that got us even more pumped up!

Well, now things have seemed to take a turn that maybe some fans aren’t going to initially like to hear. It was previously reported that the director has already started testing teenagers to fill four mystery roles in the movie. Now a new rumor tells us how old these teenagers will be.

I initially thought the ages would range from 16 to 19, but according to this report, the age range is from 12 to 13. The characters will consist of two boys and two girls. This news comes from two separate sources… Birth.Movies.Death. and We Got This Covered. So, there might actually be some truth to this.

First Trailer for Sci-Fi Robot Dog Movie 'Axl' Starring Alex Neustaedter

"That's my dog - I want it back." Global Road Entertainment has debuted the first official trailer for Oliver Daly's new movie Axl, or A.X.L., about a giant robot dog that becomes friends with a teenager kid. It's inspired by classic 80's family sci-fi movies like Short Circuit and Flight of the Navigator, adapted directly from Daly's own short film Miles, and is more of a kids movie (or "family movie") than an edgy sci-fi concept or action movie like Michael Bay would make. Alex Neustaedter stars as Miles, along with Becky G, Dorian Kingi (as Axl), Eric Etebari, Niko Guardado, Patricia De Leon, Alex MacNicoll, and Madeline Bertani. This is a cheesy trailer with the music, but I have a feeling this might be a cool film - even though it's meant for younger audiences, seems like good fun. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Oliver Daly's Axl,

It was announced in September that Disney's Flight of the Navigator remake was back on track. Lucifer showrunner John Henderson is penning the script for Lionsgate, with the partnering of the Henson Company. And now, it looks like director Neill Blomkamp (District 9) might be in talks to helm the project after a cryptic tweet earlier this week.
