The Sandlot Turns 25: Memories That the Stars Will Remember For-Eh-Ver

The Sandlot Turns 25: Memories That the Stars Will Remember For-Eh-Ver
The '90s were an incredible decade for sports films. For those of us who grew up then, our childhoods are forever intertwined with classic moments from movies like The Mighty Ducks, Angels in the Outfield, Rookie of the Year, Little Big League and more. But there's perhaps no more beloved sports movie than The Sandlot. The insanely quotable movie introduced some of us to the concept of s'mores, convinced us to never try chewing tobacco (especially not at the carnival), made us long for summer days at the community pool and somehow had us all in love with the idea of playing baseball—especially if it meant we'd find a friend as cool as Benny "The Jet" Rodriguez. Set in the...

Muppets reboot coming to Disney’s streaming service

While the last Muppets show did not fare well and was cancelled after only one season ABC, Disney has not given up on Kermit and the gang. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Disney will reboot The Muppets for its upcoming streaming service.

The previous Muppets series aired on ABC in 2015 and was in the vein of 30 Rock and The Office, showing the behind the scenes of The Muppet’s late-night talk show and the shenanigans Kermit had to deal with. The show, however, was panned by critics and fans alike, resulting in its cancellation. Disney is currently searching for a writer for the new Muppets series.

Disney is hoping to make a streaming service that will compete with Netflix, moving all their properties onto the family-friendly service and creating many new series or rebooting several old ones. Along with The Muppets, Disney is said to be interesting in rebooting

Disney is Rebooting The Muppets Again For Their Streaming Service

Disney Studios is adding a new series to their streaming service. According to THR, they plan on once again trying to reboot The Muppets. 

Disney acquired The Muppets Studio in 2004 and they tried to revive it with a prime time ABC comedy with Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and the rest of the gang in 2016. That show was canceled after one season. 

Will the series be able to find success on their exclusive streaming service? I guess we'll have to wait and see. Disney is currently on the hunt for a writer to take on the new Muppet series. I wonder what they'll try to do with these characters this time. 

The streaming service will also include Star Wars and Marvel series and it may also include a reboot of High School Musical, The Mighty Ducks, and a Monsters Inc. series. The report also says:

The Muppets are getting another reboot series

Joseph Baxter Feb 22, 2018

Disney’s developing streaming service will see The Muppets flourish once again, with plans for another reboot series afoot...

The Muppets are, unsurprisingly, not done with television, thanks to Disney’s grandiose self-distribution designs. Consequently, plans for another television platform for the late Jim Henson’s fuzzy anthropomorphic oddities – undoubtedly some of the most recognisable characters around the world – will serve as one of the major television attractions for the Mouse’s developing streaming service.

With Disney’s streaming service seemingly telegraphing the touting of a potent intellectual property catalogue, the unmistakably iconic presence of The Muppets will, indeed, join the streaming cavalcade, according to THR. Of course, this iteration of the venerable puppet property will arrive not too long after Disney – which acquired The Muppets Studio back in 2004 – released its previous television reboot of The Muppets with an updated series that, due to low ratings and harsh critiques,

Aardman ‘Early Man’ Animators Used 273 Puppets (and 3,000 Mouths) to Bring Their Caveman Soccer Tale to Life

Aardman ‘Early Man’ Animators Used 273 Puppets (and 3,000 Mouths) to Bring Their Caveman Soccer Tale to Life
For Nick Park, it always begins with a drawing. On “Chicken Run” (2000), it was a chicken digging its way out of a coop with a shovel, which became a riff on “The Great Escape,” and on his latest, “Early Man,” it was cavemen kicking what would eventually become a soccer ball.

Thus began Aardman’s first prehistoric underdog sports movie in stop-motion, and Park’s first feature since the Oscar-winning “Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit” (2005). Only this time, he decided to direct solo without partner Peter Lord or animator Steve Box.

Cavemen are well covered now with ‘The Croods’ [which began at Aardman before DreamWorks took it over] and ‘The Flintstones,’ but I was looking for a quirky Aardman angle, and soccer became the hook,” said Park, who pitched “Early Man” as “Gladiator” meets “Dodgeball.”

“This could have legs: a group of idiotic, lovable cavemen who only know how to fight and use weapons,

Nick Park Discusses His Return to Directing With Aardman’s Stop-Motion ‘Early Man’

Nick Park Discusses His Return to Directing With Aardman’s Stop-Motion ‘Early Man’
Four-time Oscar winner Nick Park is back on the big screen with Aardman Animations’ “Early Man,” his first directing effort in a while, which opens wide in the U.S. on Friday.

The tale of a peaceful band of valley-dwelling Stone Agers who must fight to win back their verdant home from the more advanced Bronze Age humans in a high-stakes soccer match is Park’s first feature-length solo directing effort and one of his few projects that don’t star his beloved Wallace & Gromit characters. It features the voices of Eddie Redmayne as the good-natured cave man Dug; Maisie Williams as Goona, a Bronze Age girl with her own soccer aspirations; and Tom Hiddleston as Lord Nooth, the pompous Bronze Age governor who is bent on turning the tribe’s beloved valley into his latest mine.

Park first came up for the idea of a cave man character almost a decade ago. “I think I

The Mighty Ducks TV series in development

It looks like Disney may be planning to dust off The Mighty Ducks franchise, with THR reporting that ABC Signature Studios is in early development on a TV series based upon the 1990 feature film.

According to the site, ABC Signature chief Tracy Underwood has put the project into development after being approached by Steven Brill, writer of the original trilogy of movies, and produce Jordan Kerner. Brill is set to pen the script, and if it impresses, ABC Signature will look to package the project with talent and shop it out to streaming services, or potentially keep it for Disney’s own upcoming streaming platform.

The Mighty Ducks was released in 1992, and starred Emilio Estevez as Gordon Bombay, an attorney who ends up coaching a young hockey team as community service after being arrested for drink driving. The film was a hit at the box office, and led to two

Looks Like There’s a Mighty Ducks TV Series in the Works

People who remember the 1990s might remember The Mighty Ducks, which was a trio of movies about a team of young hockey players, which perhaps unsurprisingly, is called the Mighty Ducks. The movies did not manage to secure much goodwill from the critics, but it is interesting to note that they were a commercial success, so much so that they launched not just an animated series of the same name but also a NHL hockey team of the same name that was renamed following its sale to Henry and Susan Samueli. Regardless, it seems that there are still people who

New Mighty Ducks TV series in the works

Chris Longo Kirsten Howard Jan 23, 2018

Quack quack quack quack The Might Ducks might goooooo to our television screens once more...

Could the Flying V be heading back to TV?

Disney is reportedly developing a new television series based on The Mighty Ducks. It’s nothing to quack about just yet, since the project is in its early stages according to THR, but the franchise may yet skate again on the small screen.

The project comes from ABC Signature Studios, which focuses on ABC’s cable and streaming productions. Steven Brill, the screenwriter for all three of the Mighty Ducks films, approached the studio to dust off the hockey property.

The original film, The Mighty Ducks, was released in 1992 and became a box office success, spawning two sequels, a loosely-based animated series about human-duck hybrids in space, and was also the inspiration for Disney naming its NHL franchise after the fictional team.

It looks like Disney's The Mighty Ducks film franchise is being adapted into a TV series! According to THRABC Signature Studios is in early development on a series based on the classic 1990s  films that center around a youth hockey team. 

I loved those movies when I was growing up and if this series can capture the magic of those original films, then this might be something worth checking out. They might actually be able to pull that off because a couple key members of the original filmmaking team are developing the show!

According to sources, ABC Signature head Tracy Underwood "put Mighty Ducks in development after being approached by original trilogy screenwriter Steven Brill and original producer Jordan Kerner."
