Re: Sing 2

And with Scarlett Johansson and Bono, I'm guessing the agent demands for "Lobby-representation character marketing" DEMANDED the individual posters. Gawd, we need to retire this practice...

Well, ultimately, this depends on how much you liked Courage as a cartoon show.

Re: Disney's Tower of Terror

Of course, it doesn't help that Disney now has only ONE Tower in their US parks, since the west-coast Disneyland one was Guardians of the Galaxy-rehabbed for the new Marvel area.

But they'd had the project around since all the attempts at a Jungle Cruise movie, so now that they'd finished that one...

Re: Disney's Tower of Terror

Guess they had to update the old '97 TV-movie from when the ride first had only one drop, and more backstory.

Re: Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (Live-Action)

(Er, you were talking about the sudden inexplicable thread-bump/swerve to West Side Story, right, and not Snow White?
I can't imagine anyone thinking a live-action Disney would "lovingly redundant-copycat the original"--Cynically, maybe, for Lion King and Aladdin, but not "lovingly".)

Re: Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (Live-Action)

From what I see, it's going to be the lovingly redundant copycat, except that Old Rita Moreno--who's been stumping for this one on high rotation in the publicity tours for her own memoirs--will be "the Harrison Ford" for the movie. Ie., the official holy Old Survivor from the classic original movie ...

Re: Disney's The Hunchback of Notre Dame (Live-Action)

Haha…it’s so funny what you don’t know you think you know. ;) JK wasn’t actually bothered about stage shows — that was Tom Schumacher — but was, you’re right, insistent on more human character stories so as to try and top B&TB. That was his goal, hence The Ten Commandments being the first film tack...

Re: Disney's The Hunchback of Notre Dame (Live-Action)

(surely a result of JK's chasing that Best Picture Oscar; I suspect many of the more cartoony elements snuck in later) ... I love how Schwartz mentiones it has gone from the stage version, which *does* know it’s going for more of a Les Mis grown up Theatre crowd, and so can be a little more "adult"...

Re: Scooby-Doo! Theatrical animated movie just announced

I know it's Warner selling their soap, but I haven't even heard a CN fan mention Courage in TWENTY YEARS.
I don't even know if they've still been banished to Boomerang, along with Johnny Bravo.

Re: Pixar's Luca

Oh, I wouldn’t call it pretentiousness, but perhaps an ambitiousness. I don’t think they set out to preach, but they do push themselves and set out to reach. Still, it’s nice every now and then just to have some simple fun, like A Bug's Life, The Good Dinosaur or even Brave. Well, A Bug's Life, any...

Re: Disney's Frozen

How do you know any of this? Those female characters all exist in separate stories/universes. Isn’t just possible that they’re all unique characters too? If you're saying Raya is "different" from Moana, that's a fairly relative term. They seem to be the same character, with ethnic backstories swapp...

Unless in the preview they specifically state that the first bug preserved in amber is the one found in that mining scene. Which would be dumb…
They've DONE dumber.

In fact, that brand of Dumb is even more common today, in the age of Desperate 80's-90's Movie Iconography.
