The Disney Channel Announces Descendants 2

Quote :

The imaginative story about the teenage sons and daughters of Disney’s most infamous villains will continue in Descendants 2, a Disney Channel Original Movie set to begin production this summer for a 2017 premiere, it was announced today by Gary Marsh, president and chief creative officer, Disney Channels Worldwide.

Marsh said, “Just when you thought ‘Happily Ever After’ had come to the land of Auradon, ‘Descendants 2’ turns the page to reveal a whole new level of mystery and surprise.”

It is the highly-anticipated sequel to Descendants, the No. 1 cable television movie of 2015 and the fifth highest-rated original movie ever on U.S. cable TV in Total Viewers. It is also the No. 1 Disney Channel Original Movie ever among kids in France, Netherlands, Belgium (south), Portugal, South Africa and Spain. In Italy, it is the No. 1 Disney Channel Original Movie ever among girls.

Emmy Award-winning director Kenny Ortega (Descendants, “High School Musical” movies, 2016’s “The Rocky Horror Picture Show”) will return as director, executive producer and choreographer.

Consumer interest remains strong in new Descendants stories as Disney Publishing’s sequel book, “Return to the Isle of the Lost” written by Melissa de la Cruz, entered the New York Times Best Sellers List (Middle Grade Hardcover) at No. 2 last week, its first week of release. The first book, “The Isle of the Lost,” was No. 1 for 14 weeks and this week, reentered for its 37th week on the best sellers list.

Dove Cameron (“Liv and Maddie”), Cameron Boyce (“Gamer’s Guide to Pretty Much Everything,” “Jessie”), Booboo Stewart (X-Men Days of Future Past), Sofia Carson (“Adventures in Babysitting”) and Mitchell Hope will reprise their starring roles as Mal, Carlos, Jay, Evie and King Ben, respectively. China Anne McClain (“A.N.T. Farm”) will join the cast as Uma, the daughter of Ursula from The Little Mermaid. Casting will be announced soon for additional new characters including the progeny of villains Captain Hook and Gaston.

Lauded writers Sara Parriott and Josann McGibbon (“The Starter Wife,” “Runaway Bride”), who won a 2016 Writers Guild Award for Descendants, wrote Descendants 2 and will also executive-produce with Wendy Japhet (Descendants, An Education, The Italian Job). “Descendants” costume designer Kara Saun (“Project Runway”) and production designer Mark Hofeling (“Teen Beach Movie,” “High School Musical”) are also signed on for the sequel. Tony Testa (“The Rocky Horror Picture Show,” “This Is It”) will join the creative team as choreographer with Ortega, and Shawn Williamson (“Adventures in Babysitting”) will join as producer.

i'd say that Moana actually doesn't look too good based on that trailer, but knowing Disney's track record, i have no doubt that it's gonna be great Wink

separately, i finally saw Zootopia recently. seven times Razz we switched to DirecTV a couple weeks ago and it happened to be on their on-demand cinema so i made a point of watching it alot. it's quite good Smile

I'm really looking forward to 'Finding Dory'. 

Saw the first in theaters as a child and that film is really special to me. I don't know if you guys know this about me, but that turned me into a fish lover as much as a Dino lover. I've owned a few saltwater aquariums since and I just love it.

I love how movies can inspire people to be passionate about something new.

Finding Dory scribe talks spin-off possibilities!

Quote :

If there is a second sequel to “Finding Nemo” – and judging by those huge numbers “Finding Dory” is doing it’s very likely – who would it possibly follow?

If “Dory” scribe Victoria Strouse has her way, the next film in the series would follow two from the new film.

“It would have to be Destiny” says Strouse in an interview with CreativeScreenwriting.com. “She just was so much fun, and actually pages and pages were written for her that never made the movie. Her part used to be bigger, and Kaitlin Olson was just phenomenal. She nailed her. At one point, Destiny was just a raging hypochondriac, and a whale shark that was constantly on the verge of panic was a tremendous joy to write. Bailey also used to be a lot bigger in the story. His obsession with his head size was something that was really pronounced and so fun, comedically speaking. If I could do a spinoff movie, it would be about those two because they went through a lot – they had their own side-movie going.”

The screenwriter also discussed her script for “Tinker Bell”, talking specifically about the challenges of writing the “Peter Pan” spin-off.

“The challenges I see with Tinker Bell are making her a complex character and how to make her work within a story. They have been terrific in giving me license to figure out who she is. More than anything, that has been exciting – to give complexity to a character that I think has been seen as a sidekick in many ways, like Dory. To be able to give someone a life and voice of their own is really interesting to me.”

I haven't seen Finding Dory yet, but this screams what happened with Planes as a Cars spin-off. Nothing's confirmed though so probably not worth going on about.

“Wreck-it Ralph 2” Announced by Walt Disney Animation

Quote :

Today during a live-stream on Facebook, Walt Disney Animation Studios announced that a sequel to the hit film Wreck-It Ralph is officially in production. The original film was released in 2012 and starred John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Jack McBreyer, and Jane Lynch. It also brought in over $470 million dollars at the worldwide box office and became a fan-favorite among both Disney geeks and gamers.

The new film will be released March 9th, 2018.

During the steam, director was joined by writer Phil Johnson before star John C. Reilly crashed the set. After joking that Reilly had accidentally announced the sequel to the press in the past, the trio made it official. In a fun twist, Reily went on to start to describe what will happen in the sequel, only the have the stream “break up” and end.

Spielberg's The BFG Struggles at Box Office - Report

Quote :

Disney's Finding Dory was the No. 1 film at the US box office this weekend, beating out newcomers such as The Legend of Tarzan and Steven Spielberg's The BFG.

Variety, which has the box office figures, reports that Finding Dory took in $41.9 million over the weekend, bringing its new US total to $372.2 million. After Monday's figures are counted (it's a US holiday), the film could rake in $50.5 million for the four-day weekend.

The site also reports that Finding Dory is on pace to topple Toy Story 3 ($415 million) to become Pixar's highest-grossing US film ever.

The Legend of Tarzan brought in $38.1 million, landing at the No. 2 position for the weekend. It could end up making $4 million for the four-day holiday weekend, which would be around $10 million more than analysts predicted, Variety said.

In the No. 4 position for this weekend was Disney's The BFG. Variety called it "the weekend's biggest disaster" and one that, despite pretty OK reviews, was "overshadowed by" Finding Dory. It "collapsed" at the box office, the report said, bringing in $19.6 million for the three-day weekend and is on pace for $23.6 million for the four-day holiday weekend. The film had a reported $140 million budget

"It will rank as one of the biggest flops of the summer and of Spielberg's career, raising questions about his drawing power after a decade spent making historical dramas such as Lincoln that are geared at older crowds," Variety said.

The BFG came in behind The Purge: Election Year, the weekend's No. 3 movie, which made $30.9 million Friday-Sunday and could generate $34 million when Monday's numbers come in.

Pixar - No More Sequels After 2019

Quote :

It’s perfectly understandable to wonder why there are no rats, robots, or anthropomorphized emotions on Pixar’s upcoming slate of sequels, which kicked off with Finding Dory and continues through 2019 with Cars 3, Toy Story 4, and The Incredibles 2.

In a recent chat with Entertainment Weekly, Pixar president Jim Morris spoke about the studio’s development process, why certain sequels made the cut, and why you won’t be seeing anything less than original at Pixar for quite some time.

“Most studios jump on doing a sequel as soon as they have a successful film, but our business model is a filmmaker model, and we don’t make a sequel unless the director of the original film has an idea that they like and are willing to go forward on,” Morris explains. “A sequel in some regards is even harder [than the original] because you’ve got this defined world which, on the one hand, is a leg up, and on the other hand has expectations that you can’t disappoint on.”

Essentially, Pixar’s reliance on a director-driven model means the studio has to be choosy about which director they can assign to a picture, thereby putting that filmmaker out of commission for as long as it takes to complete the film (anywhere between three and five years). Since the studio won’t hand the reins of a director’s brainchild to another body (with rare exception), some of the Pixar sequels you’re hoping for just can’t happen until other films happen first — sequel or not.

Morris says, “Everything after Toy Story and The Incredibles is an original right now.” Following The Incredibles 2 in 2019, Pixar’s next two films — currently listed on Disney’s release schedule for March and June of 2020, respectively — are both originals, independent of one another but both of which take place in “unusual but believable worlds that take us in even other directions than we’ve pursued in the past.” Following those two, Morris says, are two more original films in early development that aren’t dated on the studio’s schedule yet but are “highly likely.” No other sequels are planned at the moment, Morris says.

I swear, the more news I hear about this "Mary Poppins Returns" film (like she's frigging BATMAN or something), the less I like it. And that's not a position I want to be in, Mary Poppins is in many ways The Wizard of Oz of Disney and so doing a sequel is like treading on hallowed ground. Or to quote everyone's favourite chaotician:
"You were so preoccupied with whether you could you didn't stop to think if you should!".

Finding Dory Crosses the $900 Million Mark

Quote :

Disney•Pixar’s Finding Dory crossed the $900 million mark globally yesterday, becoming the fourth Walt Disney Studios release to reach the threshold this year. The third-highest grossing Pixar release of all time, Finding Dory has surpassed the original $871 million gross of its 2003 prequel Finding Nemo and is approaching that film’s $936 million lifetime gross.

Finding Dory opened June 17 with $135 million in the US and Canada, the biggest debut ever for an animated film and the #3 opening of 2016 overall. The film is already the #1 domestic release of the year and the #7 domestic release of all time with $476.9 million. Its international gross is $423.5 million with upcoming releases in Italy, Germany, and other territories.

Finding Dory is the 16th Disney release to reach $900 million and joins Captain America: Civil War ($1.15B), Zootopia ($1.02B) and The Jungle Book ($949M) among the studio’s 2016 releases, with the four ranking as the top four industry releases of the year worldwide.

Finding Dory picks up six months after the first movie, with Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) living a quiet life among the clown fishes. After going with Nemo on a class trip to see manta rays migrate back home, her home sickness leads the forgetful Dory on a quest to find where she came from. The film features returning favorites Marlin, Nemo and the Tank Gang. Set in part along the California coastline, the story also welcomes a host of new characters, including a few who will prove to be a very important part of Dory’s life, such as her parents.

Findng Nemo helmer Andrew Stanton (John Carter) returns to the directors chair for the animated film, which features the voices of Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Ed O’Neill, Kaitlin Olson, Ty Burrell, Michael Sheen, Eugene Levy and Diane Keaton.

One thing I can say for Brenton Thwaites, he really does look like the child of Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley, so decent casting on the surface of it. But I doubt he can carry this film, at least not without Jack Sparrow popping up frequently. Speaking of Jack, Disney really seem to be hiding Johnny Depp since his films have just not been doing well with audiences or critics. I love Javier Bardem, his performance in No Country For Old Men always gives me goosebumps, but his Captain Salazaar reminded me of a cross between Severus Snape and the Penguin from Batman Returns. So, I don't know what to feel about that.

At a whopping budget of $320 million, Disney better hope and pray that audiences are in the mood for some swashbuckling pirate fantasy, otherwise they have big trouble on their hands. Personally, I'm game - I've always enjoyed this franchise more than most, but whether this will recapture the magic or give the series a fresh start is up in the air as we speak.

A live action Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs?? Good luck finding a good casting for Snow White herself, Disney. Oh who are we kidding? They'll find a better casting than Kristen Stewart before long.

I was a little disappointed with Maleficent. Cinderella was pretty good and The Jungle Book was amazing imo. Beauty and the Beast looks hella good so I'm not worried too much about a new live action Snow White (especially if it's made by Disney).

Speaking of Maleficent, part of me hopes that Disney actually straight up re-makes Sleeping Beauty faithfully and reverently, and just pretend that Maleficent was a bad hangover that should never have happened. The only takeaway is that Angelina Jolie plays Maleficent as she was meant to be: evil, intimidating, and oozing with dark charisma. But realistically, that's not likely to happen.

A remake of The Black Hole has never happened because Disney considered it too dark.

I find this very ironic considering how Disney has never been shy about making it's villains quite dark.

Scar anybody?

Frollo. Gaston. Madame Medusa. Davy Jones. Sykes. Hans. the Coachman. the Horned King.

yeah, Disney doesn't know what the hell they're talkin' about when they say they don't want to make something 'cuz it seems too dark.

Frollo is as pitch black as you can get in terms of Disney darkness. I really wish I understood the context of hell fire as a kid.

Oftentimes I feel that Disney (but not Lucasfilm or Marvel) doesn't really know how to do villains well anymore; unless they're based on older villains like Shere Khan. They can tackle difficult subject matters like racism, broken families and ostracism, but their last truly great villain was in Tangled with Mother Gothel. Wreck it Ralph, Frozen, Big Hero 6 and Zootopia all had these weird/frustrating villain reveals that came in the form of a twist.

The first couple of times was interesting, but by Zootopia it just becomes completely necessary and ends up undermining potentially interesting villains. Looking back at Disney's villains from the previous century they really knew how to instill fear into the audience; they managed to be extremely dark whilst being able to tell a thoughtful and uplifting story. Don Bluth firmly believed that kids can endure any amount of darkness as long as there's a happy ending, and Disney used to hold true to that.

I'll disagree on Ralph, but agree on the others. Heck, I called the villain in BH6 as soon as he showed up on screen. I don't know if they just enjoy mystery or what, but it seems like they do have trouble making villains that are rounded as villains. I mean even well established ones sort of get the shaft. Take a Maleficient, an honestly bare bones portrayal of evil, but done so well lots of people love her; then Disney makes that live-action film, and fleshes her out in a way where she becomes a victim. Maybe evil for the sake of evil isn't as compelling, but what they did do brought the character down quite a bit.

I almost forgot about Maleficent, and you're right about the whole victimization BS that movie tried to pull, GOD that was so stupid!! Evil for the sake of evil is regarded as somewhat old hat, since few people in real life are completely evil all the way through. I'm not against Disney giving their villains nuance and dimension but I AM against them pussyfooting established villains or just writing rubbish villains.

Holy crap Pixar, I know people didn't like Cars 2 and said it was too silly, but wow....
