Original Voice Actors Reprise Their Roles for Kingdom Hearts III

  • Cinelinx
Square Enix has announced that the voices that helped make Frozen, Tangled, Toy Story, Hercules, and more are returning to breathe life into their characters in Kingdom Hearts III, more within...

Since the inception of movies to video games, very rarely have we seen the original actor(s) reprise their roles for the interactive version.  Even Kingdom Hearts, in its early days, had to bring in new actors to voice some iconic characters.  The most high profile voice of the series was mainly Haley Joel Osment.  With Kingdom Hearts III, however, that's all about to change.  Along with the return of Haley Joel Osment as Sora, Square Enix has announced that the highly anticipated game has brought in the A-list cast from Disney's Frozen and Tangled, along with some iconic voices from Pirates of the Caribbean, Hercules, Toy Story, and other Disney IPs to reprise their roles for the English dub.

Erika Henningsen Takes 'Mean Girls' — And Us — To Broadway (Exclusive)

Standing ovations are certainly nothing new when it comes to Broadway productions (the cast and crew would really have to screw up not to get one), but there was something a little extraordinary about the one that greeted a recent performance of the musical Mean Girls at the August Wilson Theatre. The energy and the enthusiasm from the audience seemed a little overwhelming, which immediately begs the question: what is it like to be on the receiving end of that kind of response? "I have to say, my favorite part in the show is the last 10 minutes," replies Erika Henningsen, who plays nice girl gone mean, but eventually redeemed, Cady Heron. "There are days when I think, 'Oh my God, I don't have the energy to do this.' It becomes such a marathon, but then in the last 10 minutes I get to speak to the cast — the full cast — in that Spring Fling number.

2019 Emmy spotlight: Amy Adams’s performance cuts deep in ‘Sharp Objects’

The 2018 Emmys won’t be handed out until September, but the 2019 Emmy race has already begun with HBO’s chilling eight-part miniseries “Sharp Objects,” based on a novel by “Gone Girl” author Gillian Flynn. Marti Noxon ran the show, and Jean-Marc Vallee directed every episode. They’re both strong Emmy contenders for their work behind the camera, but let’s talk about what lead actress Amy Adams accomplished on screen.

Remember when Adams used to be primarily known for playing lovable naifs? She initially broke through with warmhearted roles in “Catch Me if You Can” (2002) and “Junebug” (2005), the latter of which earned her her first Oscar nomination. And she followed those up with similarly chipper heroines in “Enchanted” (2007), “Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day” (2008) and “Julie and Julia” (2009). But then she started to expand her repertoire to include darker, grittier characters in “The Fighter” (2010), “The Master” (2012) and “American Hustle” (2013), which earned her her third,

20 Crazy Details Behind The Making Of Enchanted

Enchanted took America by storm when it opened on Thanksgiving weekend in 2007. Disney knew it had something special on its hands, as evidenced by the cushy holiday release date. Even so, the Mouse House might not have anticipated just how popular it would be, or how much audiences would still be in love with it years later.

The movie was designed to imagine what would happen if a Disney-esque animated princess was somehow transported into the real world. Along the way, a little bit of fun would be had at the studio's expense, in the form of a thorough spoofing of its animated movie conventions.

Amy Adams plays the princess, Giselle, who turns from a cartoon into a flesh-and-blood human. Patrick Dempsey is Robert, a lawyer who takes her in, and James Marsden is Prince Edward, the man she met and fell in love with right before being warped into New York City.

Sequels Dominate as Denzel's 'Equalizer 2' Edges Out 'Mamma Mia!' Sequel at Top of Box Office

Sequels Dominate as Denzel's 'Equalizer 2' Edges Out 'Mamma Mia!' Sequel at Top of Box Office
A different kind of record was set this weekend in that it was the first weekend ever where eight of the top ten films at the weekend box office were sequels. Of those eight, two of the weekend's new follow-up films are locked in a tight race at the top with Sony's The Equalizer 2 pulling off a surprise upset, edging out Universal's Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, which looked as if it might top $40 million at one point over the weekend, but settled down well below that mark. Overall, the weekend showed a slight improvement over last weekend while falling ~7% behind the same weekend last year. At the top of the box office, Sony's release of The Equalizer 2, starring Denzel Washington and directed by Antoine Fuqua, delivered an estimated $35.8 million, topping the $34.1 million opening for the first film. The film's second place performance comes as

Open Thread. Best Amy Adams Performances?

by Nathaniel R

With Sharp Objects debuting tonight on HBO, let's talk Amy Adams. Why should film twitter have all the listing fun? Talk Film Society asked people to list their 3 favorite performances were and I was stunned how quickly I came to my definitive answer. 

Junebug (2005) The Fighter (2010) Enchanted (2007)

You've got her full range displayed; endearing dramedic instincts, stealth pathos with deep soul beneath the exteriors of women who seem ordinary at first glance, her star charisma and comic invention are all over her best work.

And to make the question a bit more interesting. Is there a performance of hers other people love that you just don't? My vote there is for The Master (). I think she's terribly miscast and I couldn't ever figure out the draw of what she was doing or how people figured it was earned within the film -- especially for an actual Oscar nomination.

Amy Adams On ‘Enchanted’ Sequel: “We’re Working On It”

Amy Adams On ‘Enchanted’ Sequel: “We’re Working On It”
Amy Adams during an appearance today on The Talk gave a brief update on the status of Disenchanted, Disney’s long-in-the-works sequel to its Adams-starring 2007 hit about Giselle, the singing animated Disney princess who crosses over into the real world.

“I am absolutely up for that,” Adams said when asked by co-host Sara Gilbert about reprising her role in a sequel. “We’re working on it — so hopefully.”

There has been no recent movement on the project at Disney — the sequel is currently in development with Adam Shankman attached to direct. But Enchanted 2 was in the works as far back as 2014, when Anne Fletcher was aboard to helm a script written by J. David Stem and David N. Weiss from an earlier draft by Jessie Nelson. Barry Josephson and Barry Sonnenfeld are back as producers.

Aside from Adams, who since Enchanted scored four of her five Oscar nominations, the original pic co-starred Patrick Dempsey,

Amy Adams Jokes She Played ‘Nuns and Virgins’ to Avoid Sexual Harassment in Hollywood

Amy Adams Jokes She Played ‘Nuns and Virgins’ to Avoid Sexual Harassment in Hollywood
Amy Adams has a unique strategy for warding off unwanted advances on movie sets.

The five-time Oscar nominee, 43, opened up about her experience dealing with sexual harassment in the work place during an group interview with The Hollywood Reporter to tout her new HBO show Sharp Objects.

“I think most women have experienced it, even if it’s just feeling unsafe rejecting somebody. And apologizing, ‘Oh, I’m so sorry, I must have been sending you the wrong signal,’ when, really, it’s like, ‘No, I think I said I don’t want to go out with you, I don

Who was better on ‘Dancing with the Stars’: Tonya Harding or Nancy Kerrigan? [Poll]

Who was better on ‘Dancing with the Stars’: Tonya Harding or Nancy Kerrigan? [Poll]
Tonya Harding said she was “perfectly fine” with the inevitable comparisons to Nancy Kerrigan before “Dancing with the Stars: Athletes” started, so now that it’s over, let’s do just that! Who did you prefer on the show?

If we’re just talking empirical data, Harding obviously did better than Kerrigan. She made the final, got a perfect score of 30 for her freestyle and finished tied in second with Josh Norman, behind champ Adam Rippon. Kerrigan, who competed on Season 24 last spring, finished tied in sixth with Nick Viall and her highest score was a 36 (out of 40) for her “Enchanted” jazz.

Known for her athleticism as a skater, Harding was unsure herself if she’d be graceful on the hardwood, but she exceeded everyone’s expectations with her first dance and continued to improve every week. Her freestyle was a joyful cap to her whole run. As we’ve previously mentioned,

Teaser Watch: Amy Adams Heads Home to Investigate a Crime in HBO’s “Sharp Objects”

“Sharp Objects”

Amy Adams returns to the small screen after a decade-plus hiatus in “Sharp Objects.” The five-time Oscar nominee stars in HBO’s adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s 2006 best-selling novel, her first time on TV since her recurring gig on “The Office.” This time around, the “Arrival” star will be tackling much darker fare.

An atmospheric teaser has been released for the miniseries about an emotionally unstable reporter who returns to her small hometown to cover the murder of two pre-teen girls. She “finds herself identifying with the young victims — a bit too strongly. Dogged by her own demons, she must unravel the psychological puzzle of her own past if she wants to get the story — and survive this homecoming,” “Sharp Objects’” official synopsis hints.

“We need to talk about your daughters,” a character says through voiceover in the spot. “One of them is dangerous and the other one’s in danger.

‘A Kid Like Jake’ Review: Silas Howard Directs a Simple but Effective Drama About Raising a Non-Binary Child — Sundance 2018

Four-year-old Jake Wheeler (Leo James Davis) isn’t like the other kids who are applying for a spot at one of New York City’s ultra-competitive private pre-schools. For one thing, he’s a lot more developmentally advanced than most of them, his cognitive and fine-motor skills putting him in the 96th percentile for his age group. For another, he loves to wear frilly princess dresses and pretend that he’s Rapunzel when he plays with his friends. He owns not one, but two separate copies of “Enchanted” on DVD, and his favorite movie of all-time is “The Little Mermaid” (not that there’s all that much hyper-masculine cinema out there for toddlers).

Jake’s Park Slope parents, Alex and Greg (Claire Danes and Jim Parsons), are happy to indulge their son’s “gender-expansive play” in the privacy of their own home, but how should they handle this in public?
