Disney’s Beauty and the Beast Remake: First teaser trailer


Yesterday morning, a teaser trailer was unveiled on Good Morning America for the live-action remake of the beloved animated film almost 10 months ahead of the film’s release.

The teaser gives the first look at Emma Watson as Belle, showing her arrival at the Beast’s castle. The castle’s famous residents can also be heard (“Look, it’s a girl!…What if she’s the one?”), as well as a piano version of the movie’s iconic theme. It gave me chills!

Directed by Bill Condon (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Parts 1 and 2), Beauty and the Beast stars Watson as Belle, Dan Stevens as Beast, Luke Evans as Gaston, Josh Gad as Le Fou, Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, Ewan McGregor as Lumiere, Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts, Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Plumette, Stanley Tucci as Cadenza, Kevin Kline as Maurice, and Audra McDonald as Garderobe.

The BFG – New Trailer


The BFG considers himself the good guy because he doesn’t eat children, which … yeah, that’s a strong positive by anyone’s standards. Plus, he takes it upon himself to warn kiddos about the other giants who do dine on children in hopes of warning them. Heres my previous blog for more info.

Here’s a new trailer to get you even more excited about this film! Eeep!

 “The BFG” is scheduled to hit theaters on July 1, 2016. Penelope Wilton, Jemaine Clement, Rebecca Hall, Rafe Spall and Bill Hader also star.

The Mad Hatter surprised guests at Disneyland


Last week, right outside the gates of Disneyland there was what appeared to be a digital billboard for “Alice Through the Looking Glass.” The big surprise about it? It was actually Johnny Depp himself as his iconic Mad Hatter character live-streaming, actually talking and interacting with guests in real-time!


Guests certainly were excited and delighted that the Mad Hatter knew what they were saying and doing. You can see some guest reactions in the video below:

Ahh wish I was there! 🙂

Disney Announces 9 New Films

Following the runaway success of Jon Favreau’s Jungle Book, Disney have announced that they have no less than nine more live action films in development. 

This isn’t counting – by the way – anything that they’ve already filmed. If you include the yet-to-be-released Alice Through the Looking GlassBeauty and the Beast and Pete’s Dragon, then that’s 12 live action Disney films coming our way.


While we don’t know when the following titles will hit our screens, Disney have allocated seven release slots – from July 2017 right through to November 2019 – for live action movies, and so we can expect that most of these films will drop then.

Check them out, and see what you think:

1. Cruella

Emma Stone looks set to star as Cruella De Vil in this live action look at her evil exploits. Kelly Marcel, who wrote the screenplay for Saving Mr. Banks as well, interestingly enough, as 50 Shades of Grey, is rumoured to be on board as the writer, alongside The Devil Wears Prada and 27 Dresses scribe Aline Brosh McKenna.


2. Dumbo

Jon Favreau’s The Jungle Book has been a huge hit, and so Disney are following it up with a live action remake of another beloved animal classic: Dumbo. Hopefully, this 21st century version will leave out the “Jim Crow” racism, but keep the incredibly touching, slightly heartbreaking love between Dumbo and his mum.

3. Maleficent 2

Angelina Jolie has signed on to reprise her role as Maleficent for a sequel expected to be released in 2017. While plot details are – for now – being kept tightly under wraps, we do know that Linda Woolverton – who wrote the first Maleficent as well as the live action Beauty and the Beast – is set to pen the screenplay.


4. A Wrinkle in Time

A teenage girl journeys through time and space in search of her missing father in one of Disney’s lesser known films. The live action remake, however, is set to be directed by Ava DuVernay – nominated for a Golden Globe for directing Selma – and we can’t wait to see what she comes up with..


5. Jungle Cruise

All we know about Jungle Cruise is its name, and the fact that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is set to star. Other than that, it’s anyone’s guess. Some sort of Jungle Book spin-off? A Race to Witch Mountain type family adventure? We’ll have to wait and see.


6. Mary Poppins Sequel

Emily Blunt is going to have a crack at filling Julie Andrews’ shoes, playing Mary Poppins in an as yet untitled sequel. Relative newcomer Lin-Manuel Miranda is rumoured to be playing Jack, and Finding NeverlandLife of Pi writer David Magee will be penning the screenplay.


7. The Nutcracker and the Four Realms

It looks like Disney is going to have a crack at a Christmas film, as they’ve set Dear John director Lasse Hallström the task of making The Nutcracker and the Four Realms. This Christmas Eve tale sees a young girl given a nutcracker for Christmas, and told by her parents to take extra special care of it. Surprise, surprise it comes to life, but then so does an evil, seven-headed mouse. So, swings and roundabouts really…

8. The Jungle Book 2

Disney had a go at making an animated Jungle Book 2 back in 2003, but it didn’t go down that well. Hopefully, Jon Favreau’s sequel will go down better. In the animated version, Mowgli heads back to the jungle after not adapting well to village life, and we can imagine that live action Jungle Book 2 will follow the same basic storyline.


9. Tink

Reese Witherspoon is set to star in and produce Tink: a live action film based on Peter Pan’s Tinkerbell. While we know that it’ll take place “in the world of the classic novel” (so presumably Neverland), and that Tinkerbell will be the main character, plot details are (as yet) thin on the ground… Watch this space.
