I think they should do a story with two people from different worlds who don't have much in common, but when their worlds collide they realize they really aren't that different after all and learn to either love or respect each other. Pocahontas? Avatar spoiler alert... http://www.slashfilm.com/wp/...

Yeah, I'd like to see that too, James. :) I also want to see an animated movie about an outsider whom no one likes, except for a wacky sidekick who is also an outsider. But when a villain/disaster approaches, the outsider, thanks to his or her wild ideas, becomes the village/country's only hope. In ...

Fantasia and Fantasia 2000 will probably arrive in Blu-ray combo packs, each containing a DVD of the film.

I don't think they were "secretly" completing it during breaks on P&tF. I should clarify my comment. I meant a new film made out of pre-existing shorts. For instance, if Disney has taken shorts such as Destino and Lorenzo , and placed them together with live-action introductions, I would like to se...

Here is the Blu-ray trailer for Fantasia , Fantasia 2000 and Fantasia World : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bCHd5C5ADRg I'm intrigued by Fantasia World . The trailer says it is a new collection of never-before-seen shorts, making the project almost sound like a new movie. If Fantasia World is a new...

No disrespect intended, Eric. But using your logic, I think Ratatouille would have been the 'martyr' and Wall-E would have been the winner. Personally, I believe this year's frontrunners for Best Picture are, in alphabetical order, Avatar, The Hurt Locker and Up in the Air.

I greatly enjoyed the 'Best of 2009' report. :) James, you've convinced me to see Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs , since you placed it above Coraline and The Princess and the Frog . After being letdown by Meltdown , I had zero interest in another Ice Age movie. But I'm definitely going to check it o...

I'm sure the cause of Murphy's death will be known eventually. Until then, I think the best thing to do is honor her memory, without speculation of foul play. Today, I've read articles which mention Murphy struggled with self-esteem issues, never feeling as accomplished or beautiful as some of her c...

Murphy will certainly be missed. I didn't realize all of her animated roles until reading Animated Views' obituary. When I read Murphy won an Annie, I checked IMDb, to see which role won her the award. I'm not surprised it was Luane in King of the Hill , as I loved her work in that role. On a side n...

I'm very sad about this news. I'm glad he lived to see traditional Disney animation return to critical acclaim and financial success last weekend.

According to Deadline Hollywood , The Princess and the Frog will collect approximately $27 million this weekend, based on Friday's estimates. I think the film will have good word-of-mouth. I just hope Avatar and Alvin & the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel don't kill the film's chance of reaching $100 mill...

Let's not kid ourselves, folks. Disney seriously went downhill after Eisner left (and I'll be the first to admit that I was wrong about him) Which films are you referring to, Eddie? I thought Eisner and David Stainton were largely responsible for weakening the films released soon after their depart...
