Pixar continues to roll out the sequels to some of their biggest hits, despite what some fans and critics want. Today they moved just a step closer into production as they got Albert Brooks to voice Marlin, the high-strung clown fish, once again in Finding Nemo 2. But that's not the only deal that Disney is making as they may give Andrew Stanton a second chance at...

Editorial: More 'Star Wars' You Say?

I remember it like it was yesterday. After suffering through what seemed like an hour of bad romance, and a side plot that didn't advance much character (and maybe a little plot), we saw Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi go toe to toe with Count Dooku. Yeah, maybe the fights were a little CGI enhanced, but it was still a lightsaber battle. Then Yoda showed up and turned into a whirling...

Ever since Disney announced that they would be releasing an all new trilogy of Star Wars sequels, fan speculation has run rampant concerning the “stand-alone” films that Disney also mentioned producing, which would each take place in the Star Wars universe, but would be more concerned with individual characters rather than the overall series arc of Jedi versus the Sith.  And with...

'Star Wars': Yoda May Be Getting His Own Spin-Off Stand-Alone Film

Published by

One of the more interesting aspects of Disney’s re-launching of the Star Wars franchise is that not only are they prepping the release of an all-new trilogy, but that they are set to release a series of stand-alone films set within the Star Wars universe as well.  And the first of those stand-alone films may well star a little green guy who has an odd manner of...

It’s been a topsy-turvy few months for fans of both the Star Wars and Star Trek franchises.  On the Star Trek end of the spectrum, there has been wild and fervid internet speculation as to whether or not director J.J. Abrams would commit the supposed sacrilege of rebooting the classic Trek villain Khan for the upcoming Star Trek Into Darkness...

In this world, there are few things you’re supposed to leave alone—sleeping dogs, hornet’s nests, and the Disney corporation.  But the film Escape From Tomorrow, which just premiered at Sundance, did exactly that—the movie was shot almost entirely at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida and Disneyland in Anaheim, California, and “without the knowledge or...

Ever since Disney got their hands on Lucasfilms' previous Star Wars property, the possibility of there being a new trilogy finally became a reality. The same may go for the long-rumored live-action television series, believe it or not. No, seriously. They want to finally make the Star Wars television series. Okay, we'll wait. Just take a...

Here’s some news that’s a little less than surprising.  Mark Romanek, known for his dark, disturbing visions both as music video director (Nine Inch Nails’ “Closer,” Fiona Apple’s “Criminal, and Johnny Cash’s “Hurt”) and a film director (One Hour Photo, Never Let Me Go) has been forced to bail on directing a live-action update of...

'Don Quixote' To Be Retooled By Disney And Johnny Depp

It's hard not to collectively groan when you read a title like that. It's not that we're groaning over the fact that Johnny Depp has another big acting job to do, but it's just that he continues to lean more towards the odd, quirky kind of characters very similar to Captain Jack Sparrow that made him into an international superstar. While some may argue that he's drying up the well when it...

Brad Bird directing Mission: Impossible-Ghost Protocol
Aside from the fact that Toy Story 3 scribe Michael Arndt is writing the thing, and that Disney is producing the thing, all we know about Star Wars: Episode VII is who isn’t directing it.  Steven Spielberg or Zack Snyder?  Nope.  Quentin Tarantino?  Not happening.  J.J. Abrams is a definite no, with Jon Favreau a big maybe.  Matthew Vaughn? ...

Some people, it seems, can keep one hell of a secret—such as Mark Hamill (a.k.a., Luke Skywalker) who has known of the upcoming trilogy of Star Wars sequels since August.  It seems that Star Wars architect George Lucas dished the dirt to Hamill months ago.  And now that the news is out, Hamill is talking about the new films, and what may or may not be in...

If you’ll recall, yesterday the internet had a full on nerdgasm at the news that not only had Disney purchased Lucasfilm (give the company that already runs Marvel Studios and Pixas the rights to Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and more), but that Disney would be launching an all new sequel trilogy of Star Wars films, with the first coming our way in 2015.  And...
