Disney+'s Lady And The Tramp Gets a Charming New Trailer

Disney has released a wonderfully charming new trailer for the upcoming Disney+ film, Lady and the Tramp. The film is a retelling of the classic 1955 animated classic that follows a pampered house dog named Lady and a tough but lovable stray named Tramp, who embark on an unexpected adventure. Despite their differences, they grow close together, form a relationship, and come to understand the value of home.

The movie has a talented voice cast that includes Tessa Thompson as Lady; Justin Theroux as Tramp; Kiersey Clemons as Darling; Thomas Mann as Jim Dear; Janelle Monáe as Peg; Yvette Nicole Brown as Aunt Sarah; and the great Sam Elliott as the voice of Trusty.

The movie actually looks like it could be fun, and one of the aspects of it that I like is that they used real dogs to film it. I’ve been getting a little tired of CGI animals in movies,

The Co-Creators of Once Upon A Time Are Now The Showrunners of The Amazing Stories Reboot

The co-creators of ABC's hit Disney series Once Upon a Time, Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis, have officially signed on as executive producers and showrunners of Apple's upcoming reboot of Steven Spielberg's Amazing Stories.

I have high hopes for this Amazing Stories reboot. Judging by what these two guys did with Once Upon a Time, it seems like the series will be in good hands. The series was previously being developed by Brad Fuller, but he ended up dropping out because "Fuller’s vision for the show did not mesh with the more family-friendly approach sought by Apple and Amblin Television."

Horowitz and Kitsis got their start writing for shows like Popular and Felicity. They then joined the writing staff of Lost and ended up writing the feature film Tron: Legacy. They also developed the animated television series Tron: Uprising. Now that Once Upon a Time is done,

Disney’s live-action Lady and the Tramp remake finds its director

Disney’s live-action Lady and the Tramp remake finds its director
Last month, Disney announced details of the first wave of original content set to arrive on its upcoming streaming service, which included live-action remakes of two of its animated classics, The Sword in the Stone and Lady and the Tramp.

Well, we now have word on the latter, with THR reporting that Charlie Bean (The Lego Ninjago Movie) has signed on to direct Lady and the Tramp as a live-action/CG-hybrid from a script by Andrew Bujalski (Support the Girls).

Released in 1955, Lady and the Tramp tells the story of Lady, a pampered cocker spaniel who finds herself homeless after her middle-class owners have a baby. There she meets a streetwise mongrel called Tramp, and the duo embark on a series of adventures as a romance blossoms between the two dogs.

Here’s The Next Lego Ideas Set – Tron: Legacy!

Nearly eight years after the release of Tron: Legacy, fans have mostly given up on the chances of seeing another chapter in the cyberpunk saga, but the Tron franchise lives on, albeit on life support. The underrated and little-seen animated spin-off series, Tron: Uprising, originally aired in 2012, is currently streaming on Hulu. Meanwhile, the computer setting of The Grid made a show-stopping appearance in Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, which was recently re-released for PlayStation 4. There has been talk of a franchise relaunch starring Jared Leto, but time will tell if the project ever makes it off the ground.

The Tron Movie That Never Was

Tron was a film that Disney was ready to turn into the next big franchise. Not only did they spend a pretty penny on the long-awaited sequel, Tron: Legacy, but they also spent money on the TV side of things for the ambitious serialized animated series Tron: Uprising. Sadly, Tron: Legacy didn’t do so well at the box office. It made $400 million, but with its $170 million budget, it wasn’t quite enough to justify a sequel. Similarly, Tron: Uprising sort of fizzled on TV despite its decent execution, and just like that, a potential franchise sort of came and went.

This hasn’t stopped conversations about a sequel from coming out every so often. While it wasn’t a massive hit, there was a loyal fanbase for the franchise who have been hungry for years at the prospect of a new Tron film. Speaking with Collider, Tron: Legacy director

2017 Oscar Nominated Animated Shorts Review: Pixar Looms Large, But Many of These Nominees Will Make You Cry
The Oscar for best animated short film may not generate nearly as much attention as other categories, but it strikes an exciting contrast with the more traditional forms of storytelling found throughout other categories.

These films usually celebrate animators from around the world — including a number of up-and-comers — who apply a range of visual techniques and sophisticated concepts only possible in the animated medium. This year is entirely North American, but still features a lot of different approaches — and yet, ironically, the frontrunner in the category is a very familiar name: Pixar.

Blind Vaysha – Canada – 8 minutes

I did a double take upon hearing Theodore Ushev‘s name alongside his animated short Blind Vaysha during the Oscar nominations because I’ve watched his work progress the past five years. This Canadian by way of Bulgaria is a Toronto International Film Festival staple, a guy who alters his aesthetic with every new project. Whether rotoscoping, hybridizing Cubism and Constructivism, or dabbling in Abstract Expressionism, though, you always know it’s an Ushev film because of its content and craftsmanship. His latest is no different, the adoption of woodcutting lending an old school storybook feel to a tale that speaks towards today’s climate of hope and despair. Narrated by Caroline Dhavernas, Vaysha’s story begs us to open our eyes and see
