‘Encanto’ First Trailer: Lin-Manuel Miranda Scores Disney’s Colombia-Set Animated Musical
Disney has released the first official trailer for “Encanto,” a new musical featuring eight new songs from “Moana” and “Hamilton” composer Lin-Manuel Miranda. The 60th animated feature from the studio will showcase the voice talents of Stephanie Beatriz, who recently pulled focus as comedic relief in the Warner Bros.-produced adaptation of Miranda’s “In The Heights.” Set in Colombia, “Encanto” is directed by “Zootopia” helmers Byron Howard and Jared Bush, alongside newcomer co-director Charise Castro Smith. Unlike “Moana” and his contributions to the upcoming “The Little Mermaid” update, the “Encanto” score is written entirely by Miranda.

Here’s what we know about the plot so far, per Disney: “‘Encanto’ tells the tale of an extraordinary family, the Madrigals, who live hidden in the mountains of Colombia, in a magical house, in a vibrant town, in a wondrous, charmed place called an Encanto. The magic of the Encanto has blessed

Ice Age Spinoff Series Adventures of Buck Wild Is Coming to Disney+

Ice Age Spinoff Series Adventures of Buck Wild Is Coming to Disney+
Disney's massive investor day announcements flowed for hours, from all of the studio's major labels. One of the, perhaps, smaller announcements was for a spin-off from an animated franchise hatched by its recent acquisition, 20th Century Studios. The animated movies in the Ice Age franchise have been successful in their own right, if not by core Disney animation standards. A spin-off from that series, Ice Age: Adventures of Buck Wild will get an exclusive premier on Disney+.

The Ice Age Adventures of Buck Wild is the next installment in 20th Century Studios' Ice Age franchise. It stars three favorite characters: prankster possum brothers Crash and Eddie, and swashbuckling weasel Buck voiced by @simonpegg. Coming to @DisneyPlus in early 2022.

There is very little known about the Ice Age story lines, other than the series will center on the prankster possum brothers, Crash and Eddie, and the swashbuckling weasel,

‘A Little Late With Lilly Singh’ Sets (Almost) Entirely New Writing Staff for Season 2

‘A Little Late With Lilly Singh’ Sets (Almost) Entirely New Writing Staff for Season 2
A Little Late With Lilly Singh” will have a whole new look for Season 2 — and a new writing staff, including Chelsea Davison as head writer. She replaces Sean O’Connor.

Staff writers for Season 2 are Vannessa Jackson, Sabeeh Jameel, Romen Borsellino, Nimesh Patel, Neuli Handa and Natasha Vaynblat. Neil Punsalan is showrunner.

They’re all new — the only carryover writers from Season 1 to Season 2 are Singh and Davison.

The second season of the (very) late-night show will be relocated to “a Los Angeles-based house,” NBC said on Tuesday.

We checked — it’s not Lilly’s home.

“Swapping out a traditional stage for a Los Angeles-based house as the show’s location will give Lilly more space to break the rules and embrace imperfection,” the show’s press release reads.

In addition to sketches, interviews and Singh’s take on current events, Season 2 will also “go behind the scenes,” letting “audiences into

Disney Plus Lost 5 Movies This Week

Disney Plus Lost 5 Movies This Week
Streaming services have been doing an excellent job of keeping everyone busy as we all continue quarantining, and Disney Plus has been no exception. June was a particularly strong month for the platform with the additions of huge titles like Tarzan, Tarzan 2 and Avengers: Infinity War.

Meanwhile, July is already shaping up to be fantastic, too, with upcoming drops like the musical Hamilton, animated film Ice Age: Collision Course and classic sports movies like The Mighty Ducks and The Big Green. Of course, when Disney Plus giveth, Disney Plus taketh away, and the start of July means we’ve lost a few awesome films as well that some fans are sure to miss.

One of the biggest losses is Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. Johnny Depp reprises his signature role as Jack Sparrow in this fourth installment of the popular franchise that acts as a standalone followup to 2007’s At World’s End.

Disney Plus Announces Over 50 New Movies/TV Shows For July

Disney Plus Announces Over 50 New Movies/TV Shows For July
Despite only launching in November, Disney Plus has already brought in nearly 55 million subscribers, who’ve been enjoying all of their content hailing from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Star Wars franchise, Pixar, almost their entire back catalogue of animated films and much, much more.

However, it’s fair to say that when it comes to original material, Disney Plus hasn’t been bringing us very much. Sure, The Mandalorian was a major hit, but apart from that, none of their in-house projects have really stirred up any buzz. Unless, of course, you want to count Artemis Fowl, which has been making waves for all the wrong reasons.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like things will be improving on that front anytime soon, either. The Mouse House has just announced what’s headed our way in July and as you can see below, the list is lacking when it comes to buzzy original titles.

NBC Brings Back ‘A Little Late With Lilly Singh’ For Second Season

NBC Brings Back ‘A Little Late With Lilly Singh’ For Second Season
A Little Late with Lilly Singh will return to NBC for a second season. This comes after the late-night talk show finished airing its first 97-episode run last week.

Singh filmed the first season, which included guests such as Mindy Kaling, Charlize Theron, Malala Yousafzai, Jessica Alba, over a three-month period shooting two episodes a day to accommodate her other ventures. Deadline understands that Singh and the producers will determine production dates on season two when local authorities and NBC feel it is safe to do so, rather than record remotely.

The show is produced by Universal Television and Singh’s Unicorn Island Productions and replaced Last Call With Carson Daly as the third show in NBC’s late-night slot. Singh is the first person of Indian and South Asian descent to host a broadcast network late-night talkshow.

The first season, which kicked off in September, also featured Tracee Ellis Ross,

‘A Little Late with Lilly Singh’ Renewed for Season 2 at NBC
Freshman late-night talk show “A Little Late with Lilly Singh” has been renewed for a second season at NBC, the network announced Wednesday.

“Lilly is an incredible talent. ‘A Little Late’ has brought an expanding global audience to NBC and we look forward to another season of her unique showmanship and style,” said Katie Hockmeyer, executive vice president, late night programming, NBC Entertainment.

The first season of Singh’s series premiered in September 2019, replacing Carson Daly’s “Last Call with Carson Daly.” All episodes were taped during the fourth quarter of 2019, instead of going live-to-tape daily, as many other late-night series do. The first season was nominated for a GLAAD Media Award for the episode entitled “Lilly Is Struggling to Date Women.”

Singh is the first openly bisexual woman to host a late-night talk show on a broadcast network. She is also the first person of Indian and South Asian descent to do so.

Legendary Entertainment Hires Sirena Liu as China CEO (Exclusive)

Legendary Entertainment Hires Sirena Liu as China CEO (Exclusive)
Legendary Entertainment has hired Sirena Liu as the CEO of its China subsidiary, Legendary East. Legendary is the studio behind the “Pacific Rim,” “Jurassic World” and the “Godzilla” movie franchises.

Liu was most recently managing director for Twentieth Century Fox’s China office, a post she’d held since October 2015 until mid 2019. The post became redundant following Fox’s acquisition by Disney.

After a stumbling start in 2011, Legendary East was established as a wholly-owned subsidiary based in China. Its mission was to produce large-scale local films using Hollywood expertise and globally-targeted co-productions that would avoid China’s film import restrictions in their home market.

In 2016, Chinese conglomerate Dalian Wanda spent the eye-watering sum of $3.5 billion to acquire the Burbank-based parent company, in one of the largest cross-border deals of its kind in the cultural sector. The mega deal caught the attention of Chinese authorities, which moved in mid-2017 to
