Thanks for that Neal, I spoiled it as I actually had no idea she turned into a frog until thsoe plush toys were published on the net. I thought the whole movie was about a frog trying to convince Tiana that he was a prince. Re: Randy's song writing. I haven't listened to James And The Giant Peach fo...

I thought I knew what this was about but I'm obviously mistaken. This has nothing to do with the movie called Planet 51 or is it 54?

So this year we will have 2 movies about humans invading an alien planet?

Thanks for all the images posted. I'm very excited about this movie. Great to have hand drawn animation back on the big screen. I didn't realise how much I missed it until I saw Enchanted. My main concern with the movie is Randy Newman being cast for the score and songs. I know he has done animated ...

I Bill1978 must say that this has been the funniest thread of the week. Back on topic when I saw Bolt back in January I must say that I thoughourly enjoyed myself. I found myself caught up in the story which I can't say about Madagascar 2. I really liked the Truman Show type of concept for an animal...

I thought it might be straight to DVD because of the cover art. Maybe I will give it a miss. I have avoided them ever since Lion King 2 bored me senseless.

I didn't actually start officially collecting until 2000, I just needed a cut off point so I could focus on the collection and 1985 was it so The Black Cauldron could be counted. You've been collecting for a while. My first CD was in 1996 I think. I wasn't ready to stop using cassettes LOL There are...

You're welcome Ben. Collecting scores to theatrically released animated films is one of my passions. I actually made 1985 the official starting year for my collection due to The Black Cauldron. I had the bootleg for ages and I would say it was one of the best days of my life when I found the officia...

On the soundtrack: I think you may be mistaking this with The Great Mouse Detective, which was officially on Varese Sarabande. The Black Cauldron never got an official release, though there were many good looking bootlegs that used the Varese Sarabande design layout and made it look as good as a ge...

Please don't cancel my registration to this forum but I have to admit that I did enjoy the original. I don't think it's absolutely awesome but at least it offered what it's trailer promised. I personally think that it fractures fairytales much better than what the original Shrek promised in its trai...

I concur Ben, if they are decent scenes I may just fork out many for this edition when it gets released in Australia. Hopefully it's not something stupid like all the different styles for the opening logo ;-)

Oh if only those deleted scenes that were mentioned in that promo were the deleted scenes I want to see. Since The Black Cauldron is seeing the light of day, I'd thought I'd share with you good people a little fan vid that I made . Hope it's ok to post it, if not mods feel free to remove it. Enjoy. ...

I've seen Quest For Camelot or as it was known here in Australia The Magic Sword. At a really basic level I enjoyed it while the story wasn;t highly original I thought it was decent enough for a movie but the poor animation and shocking mix of traditional with cg made me cringe. As did a lot of the ...

I don't have sour grapes it's just more shocks that WALL-E couldn't even manage 1 win out of the categories it was nominated in. Especially since other committees have been saying WALL-E is the animated movie of the year and then the Animated Community awards Kung Fu Panda. It's more that I'm scratc...

It's not as bad as Disney made it out to be by pretending it didn't exist for a very long time. My earliest memory of the movie was a computer game I had. I had no idea of the story line but the premise intrigued me and I was reminded of the movie by a friend I made on ICQ (does that even exist stil...

Thanks for that James. That is a really strange way of conducting your premier awards for Animation. Although totally cool that technically I could vote in them. Putting on my tinfoil hat, I would guess that there are more Dreamworks members for the Annies than Pixar. LOL Seriously though Kung Fu Pa...
