Netflix Backs ‘Jacob and the Sea Beast’ From ‘Big Hero 6’ Director Chris Williams (Exclusive)

  • Variety
Netflix is bolstering its family entertainment offerings by getting into business with one of the biggest names in animation.

The streaming giant will produce “Jacob and the Sea Beast,” a new film from Chris Williams, the co-director of the Disney films “Moana,” “Big Hero 6,” and “Bolt.” The movie will be Williams’ first as solo director, a rarity in animation, where the scale and complexity of the projects typically demands a few hands at the tiller.

Williams wrote the screenplay, which, according to the log line, follows “a charming seafarer who sails into uncharted waters and discovers an unlikely ally in a sea monster.” The film was partly inspired by the fantastical beasts that adorned 16th and early 17th century nautical maps. Their presence alluded to the undiscovered countries that lay beyond the borders of the known world.

“‘Jacob and the Sea Beast’ is the kind of story I’ve always wanted to take on,

©2018 Disney. All Rights Reserved.

Gal Gadot revealed today that she is voicing the character Shank, a tough and talented driver in an intense and gritty online racing game called Slaughter Race, in Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Ralph Breaks the Internet,” which hits theaters this Thanksgiving.

Ralph and Vanellope encounter Shank and her unusual cohorts when they venture to the internet in search of a replacement part for Vanellope’s game, Sugar Rush. Shank, a tough-as-nails street racer, takes her role and her tricked-out car very seriously and doesn’t like to lose. When Vanellope finds herself in a street race with Shank, her Sugar Rush driving skills are put to the test—and Shank is impressed. “She is the coolest character in this world of Slaughter Race,” said director Rich Moore. “Shank’s lived a lot, she’s seen a lot, yet she’s got nothing but kindness in her

Vomiting Monster Birds and Serial Killer Podcasts Among the Horror Movie Highlights at Fantasia’s Frontieres Market
Anyone looking for positive signs of diversity at the movies needed to look no further than this year’s Frontières Co-Production Marketplace, which took place in July at Montreal’s Fantasia International Film Festival. The market, which gives genre filmmakers the opportunity to pitch and mingle with financiers and producers from around the world, has helped launch everything from Alexandre O. Philippe’s “Psycho” documentary “78/52” to this year’s Fantasia titles like Aaron Schimberg’s “Chained for Life,” Jenn Wexler’s “The Ranger” and Justin P. Lange’s “The Dark.”

A fascinating range of projects were unveiled during Frontières’ seventh edition, hailing from all over the world and expressing many and varied points of view.

Each year, the market begins with a morning event in which selected creatives have the chance to introduce assembled backers to their films via presentations incorporating graphics, statistics, concept art and “mood reels.” This session

New Trailer for ‘Wreck-It Ralph 2’ Breaks The Internet

Disney has released a new trailer and poster for ‘Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-it Ralph 2‘, the much anticipated sequel to 2012’s ‘Wreck-It Ralph’. The sequel picks up when Ralph and Vanellope must travel to the world wide web in search of a replacement part for her game, Sugar Rush.

Although the trailer itself is pretty light on story, there’s a lot of fun to be had with it. Even though it’s only been six years since the release of the original film, the even further rise to prominence of social media seems to play a big part in the sequel. I’m loving the inclusion of the Daft Punk music that accompanies this trailer, but where it really shines is with the comedy. I think that there’s a lot of great situations to be had with Ralph and Vanellope in both being stuck in the fish out of water position.

Ralph And Vanellope Meet Disney Princesses And Stormtroopers In New Trailer For Ralph Breaks The Internet: Wreck-it Ralph 2

Here’s a first look at the new trailer and poster for Ralph Breaks The Internet: Wreck-it Ralph 2.

Ralph Breaks The Internet: Wreck-it Ralph 2 leaves Litwak’s video arcade behind, venturing into the uncharted, expansive and thrilling world of the internet—which may or may not survive Ralph’s wrecking. Video game bad guy Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) and fellow misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman) must risk it all by traveling to the world wide web in search of a replacement part to save Vanellope’s video game, Sugar Rush. In way over their heads, Ralph and Vanellope rely on the citizens of the internet—the netizens—to help navigate their way, including a webite entrepreneur named Yesss (voice of Taraji P. Henson), who is the head algorithm and the heart and soul of trend-making site “BuzzzTube.”

Oscar Isaac and Olivia Wilde Experience ‘Life Itself’ in First Trailer

After mostly focusing on animation, scripting Tangled, Bolt, Cars, and more, Dan Fogelman jumped into live-action with Crazy, Stupid, Love., and then soon followed with his directorial debut Danny Collins, a good-natured, affable showcase for Al Pacino. He’s now returning this fall with Life Itself–no relation to Roger Ebert–starring Oscar Isaac, Olivia Wilde, Mandy Patinkin, Olivia Cooke, Laia Costa, Annette Bening and Antonio Banderas.

Following a trailer debut on This is Us, Fogelman’s hit show, Amazon Studios has released the preview online. The story follows multiple generations and feels a bit like a more conventional version of Cloud Atlas with a heart-on-its-sleeve, wide-reaching scope. Still, Fogelman has proved that he can take on schmaltz with a certain charm, so hopefully that’s the case here. See the preview below.

Life Itself opens on September 21.

Pixar’s Sequel Problem: Studio Tells Audiences Not to Worry About Franchises in Its Slate — Sf International Film Festival

Pixar’s Sequel Problem: Studio Tells Audiences Not to Worry About Franchises in Its Slate — Sf International Film Festival
While Disney’s animation unit continues to operate out of its lot in Burbank, Pixar never moved in. Eleven years after the beloved company was acquired by Disney, Pixar continues to operate out of its campus in the Bay Area, much of its staff has worked there for decades, and it enjoys a fair amount of autonomy from the parent company.

However, one major development has stood out in Pixar’s post-Disney life: Sequels. Prior to the Disney acquisition, Pixar had only produced one sequel to its treasured slate — “Toy Story 2,” which didn’t tarnish the brand — but it has made four sequels since the acquisition (“Toy Story 3,” “Cars 2,” “Monsters University” and “Finding Dory”). What’s more, three of the four Pixar movies slated to be released in the next two years are sequels: “Cars 3” in 2017, “The Incredibles 2” in 2018 and “Toy Story 4” in 2019. For

Frozen Sequel Could Change The Way You Look At The First One

Disney spent the late 2000s regaining all the ground they had lost in the previous decade. In the mid-2000s, their name was no longer synonymous with quality, and they had a tendency to churn out dud after dud, with an obvious eye on profit over strong storytelling. Things started to turn around for them around 2008 with the release of Bolt, which was the first Disney animated feature under the new leadership of Pixar’s head honcho and creative genius John Lasseter. And it was quite the step in the right direction.

Disney’s re-ascent to the top, however took a bit longer to gain steam. The films’ qualities and box office performances mostly saw an upward trend, but it wasn’t until perhaps 2013’s Frozen that it became clear that we were witnessing a brand new renaissance for the entertainment conglomerate. Even now, Frozen permeates the pop culture zeitgeist
