Check Out the New Muppet Babies Theme

Disney’s long-awaited CG reboot of Muppet Babies is finally making some real headway with the reveal of its new theme, performed by Hamilton’s Renée Elise Goldberry. The full intro was revealed by Entertainment Weekly, and aside from the addition of Summer the Penguin and her love of painting remains pretty intact from the original.

The animation, while being CG, is actually pretty amazing. Particularly the felt textures used on the Muppets themselves, which looks oddly real for clearly being animated. Muppet Babies is set to return to Disney Channel on March 23rd.

The Incredibles 2 Olympics Sneak Peek

Disney Pixar has finally unveiled an incredible first look at The Incredibles 2, and it looks just as fantastic as the first film. The jokes are great, and the animation looks even more fluid than the first film, albeit with its now-trademark retro-styling.

The Incredibles 2 is due in theaters June 15th, 2018, with Craig T. Nelson, and Holly Hunter reprising their roles, joined by Sarah Vowell, Huck Milner, Samuel L. Jackson, Bob Odenkirk, Catherine Keener, Jonathan Banks, Sophia Bush, Isabella Rossellini and Brad Bird.

Final Incredibles 2 Teaser Poster

Disney Pixar have released one last teaser poster before today’s much-anticipated look at The Incredibles 2 during the Winter Olympics coverage. Disney has been keeping mum on a lot of footage from the film, so it should be excited today to get a look at one of Pixar’s most anxiously awaited sequels. Hit the jump for a full look at the poster.

Everyone’s favorite family of superheroes is back in “Incredibles 2” – but this time Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is in the spotlight, leaving Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell) and Dash (voice of Huck Milner) to navigate the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life. It’s a tough transition for everyone, made tougher by the fact that the family is still unaware of baby Jack-Jack’s emerging superpowers. When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) must find a way to work together again—which is easier said than done, even when they’re all Incredible. Directed by Brad Bird (“Iron Giant,” “The Incredibles”) and produced by John Walker (“The Incredibles”) and Nicole Grindle (“Sanjay’s Super Team” short, “Toy Story 3” associate producer), “Incredibles 2” busts into theaters on June 15, 2018.

First Trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story

Lucasfilm debuted a small teaser for the film during the Super Bowl, but shortly thereafter, revealed the full teaser for the long-awaited spin-off, Solo: A Star Wars Story. The film looks pretty decent, but doesn’t quite have the bang that we’ve come to expect from other Star Wars trailers.

Solo: A Star Wars Story features Alden Ehrenreich as Han, with Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian and Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca. Woody Harrelson is playing Han’s mentor, Beckett, while Game of Thrones‘ Emilia Clarke, Thandie Newton, Paul Bettany, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge also star.

Marvel Moving Forward with Black Widow Film

After years of fan requests and outcry, Marvel Studios has announced it’s moving forward with a standalone Black Widow film, starring Scarlett Johannson. While still in the early stages, Variety has revealed that the studio has added screenwriter Jac Schaeffer, who will provide the script for the solo film about the Russian spy-turned-Avenger.

“Marvel President Kevin Feige met with several candidates before tapping Schaeffer,” according to Variety’s sources, “and Marvel execs met with Johansson to discuss what they wanted from a [Black Widow] writer.” This is some of the best news to come out of the Marvel camp in a while, and I’m excited for what’s to come.

 

Disney’s Nutcracker and the Four Realms Trailer

Ph LEVEL is back! While Christmas may be over, the holiday spirit is still running through my veins, and I’ve at least set out to catch up on a few trailers that released during my hiatus. First up, we’re keeping the Christmas feeling going with Disney’s unveiling of the first trailer of The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, their live-action adaptation of the fabled stage play.

The film takes the usual Disney live-action flair, and adds some holiday spirit with Keira Knightley, and Morgan Freeman topping out the cast of newcomers. The film is set to release November 2018.

Disney Casts Their Live-Action Mulan

The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Disney has found their live-action Mulan, and cast Chinese actress Liu Yifei, also known as Crystal Liu. This is wonderful news, as it ensures that Disney is making the film as faithful to its source material as possible, so my hopes are already much higher for this adaptation.

Niko Caro (The Zookeeper’s Wife) is directing the film with a script from Jurassic World and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes writers Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver.

First Trailer for Avengers: Infinity War

Marvel Entertainment has followed up this crazy week of Avengers: Infinity War coverage with the first official trailer for one of the most anticipated films in cinematic history. Infinity War brings together our heroes from across the galaxy, with many of them interacting for the first time to combat the intergalactic threat of universal destruction at the hands of Thanos.

It’s an epic trailer that just barely seems to touch on anything in the film. It even holds back on Marvel’s usual depth of key scenes to draw the viewer in, knowing full well that everyone on the planet plans to see it in theaters.
