Disney has huge plans for their live-action adaptation of Mulan and they are betting big on director Niki Caro to deliver something incredible. According to Pursuenews, Disney has given the film a $290 million budget, which will join the club of being one of the most expensive films ever made. 

Just to give you an idea of the scale that Disney is going for with this movie, the budget for Avengers: Infinity War is said to have been close to $300 million. Most big blockbuster films don't get this kind of budget! 

If you look at some of the budgets for some other big films there's John Carter with a budget of  $263 million, Tangled had a $260 million budget, Spider-Man 3 cost $258 million, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice cost $250 million, and Captain America: Civil War cost $250 million.

Mulan is gearing up to start shooting in New Zealand and will apparently start production in August.

Disney Vs. Pixar Tournament Bracket Causes Chaos on Twitter

March Madness is in the air, and not only for college basketball. A new bracket that puts Disney movies up against Pixar movies has turned into utter chaos online from fans arguing and discussing the problem with certain brackets. Over the years, March Madness has been spreading outside of the sports world, turning into memes and other lighthearted jokes, but the Disney and Pixar crowd are taking this bracket very seriously and it's slowly tearing the internet apart.

A Twitter user by the name of AP posted the Disney Vs. Pixar bracket last week, which has now been shared nearly 45,000 times as of this writing and has a conversation (or argument) of almost 100,000 comments. The blank bracket puts some Disney classics, with the oldest being The Little Mermaid, up against some of Pixar's most beloved tales. One of the main arguments is that the bracket does not contain any of Disney's pre-Little Mermaid classics,

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.

Frozen 2 Director Plays Coy About Giving Elsa A Female Love Interest

Frozen 2 could give Elsa a female love interest, but that’s something the film’s director is playing coy about. Frozen was a groundbreaking success for Walt Disney Animation – an iconic film studio that started to see a strong resurgence in quality and commercial success in the late 2000s and early 2010s. While animated films such as Tangled and Wreck-It Ralph were undoubtedly successful, neither was quite as popular as 2013’s Frozen, which was written by Jennifer Lee and directed by Lee and Chris Buck.

‘Coco’ looking to be just the third film to win Best Animated Feature and Original Song Oscars

‘Coco’ looking to be just the third film to win Best Animated Feature and Original Song Oscars
The jury’s still out on whether being a Best Picture nominee gives you an advantage in Best Original Song, but surely being a Best Animated Feature nominee is a huge plus, right? Technically yes, but it’s definitely not a sure thing to win both. “Coco” sits atop our latest predictions in both Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song for “Remember Me,” and if the Disney/Pixar film indeed goes two-for-two, it would only be the third time that the two categories went to the same film.

That might sound startling because so many catchy movie anthems have hailed from animated films, specifically Disney films. But the Best Animated Feature category was only added in 2001, right after Disney ruled Best Original Song in the ‘90s — five of the decade’s song winners were from animated Disney films; a sixth, “When You Believe,” was from DreamWorks’ “The Prince of Egypt

Zachary Levi on Becoming a ‘Refreshing’ DC Hero in ‘Shazam’ and a Possible Cameo by Gal Gadot (Exclusive)
Zachary Levi is living his dream.

The 37-year-old actor has become beloved by fans throughout his nearly two decades in Hollywood with roles like Chuck Bartowski on Chuck and Flynn Rider in Tangled, but it’s only recently that he’s reached a point in his career where he feels he’s really made it.
