Maleficent comes to Blu-Ray

MaleficentBlurayCombo copy Maleficent comes to Blu-Ray #review #Maleficent #disney #movies

This is one of my favorite movies I saw this year and it was a pleasant surprise. I know a lot of my friends could hardly wait to see it when it was in the theater. This was one I was not sure of. I don’t handle scary or suspense very well. I read the book first which I’m glad I did. This was not a “scary story” that I had assumed. I ended up loving it! I’m so glad I have the Blu Ray now because it’s one that I enjoy watching over and over. Some of my friends had asked if it was too scary for their kids. My answer is it depends.  Helpful, right?  Seriously though, it really depends on the child. The movie itself is not scary. There are characters in the enchanted forest that could be “scary” – trees that help to fight off the attackers, etc.  I love how this movie teaches that if you let hurt, hate, and anger overtake you it can destroy you. I think it’s a great message. I totally recommend grabbing this movie for your home entertainment library!

Princess Aurora: Don’t be afraid!

Maleficent: I am not afraid.

Princess Aurora: Then come out.

Maleficent: Then you’ll be afraid.

Maleficent will be coming out of hiding soon when she’s released on Blu-ray and Digital HD Nov. 4th. To celebrate, here is a bonus clip titled, “Aurora: Becoming a Beauty.” In this clip, Elle Fanning talks about playing the beautiful Princess Aurora and what the character means to her. We also wanted to share with you a fantastic Halloween costume blogger button, with details on making your very own Princess Aurora costume as well as a Maleficent scepter, wings and horn!

Disney Unveils “Tinker Bell and the Legend of the Neverbeast”

INTRODUCING “TINKER BELL AND THE LEGEND OF THE NEVERBEAST”:

GINNIFER GOODWIN AS THE VOICE OF ‘FAWN’

AND THE ALL-NEW CHARACTER ‘GRUFF’ 

neverbeast neverbeast 2

DisneyToon Studios is pleased to announce that Ginnifer Goodwin (“Once Upon a Time”) will voice the character Fawn in the new Disney Fairies adventure, “Tinker Bell and the Legend of the NeverBeast”.

“Fawn is a character who loves all animals unconditionally,” said director Steve Loter. “She will help any animal that needs her, but sometimes Fawn thinks too impulsively, when she should be thinking with her head, as well as her heart.”

Loter says there’s a lot of Goodwin in the character. “Fawn was inspired by my daughter and her unconditional love of animals,” he said. “But Ginnifer had a very strong hand in crafting the character. Her sense of fun and her wondrous view of the world gave Fawn direction. You can hear the smile in Ginnifer’s voice—this is a character that loves life and lives it to its fullest.”

Meet the NeverBeast (“Gruff”) in this new clip!

About ‘“Gruff”:

The heartwarming story explores the ancient myth of a mysterious creature whose distant roar sparks the curiosity of Tinker Bell’s friend Fawn, an animal fairy who’s not afraid to break the rules to rescue the NeverBeast before time runs out.   The fairies meet Gruff who is a massive creature and the subject of an ancient Pixie Hollow myth. Hidden in a dark lair on the fringes of the fairies’ beloved home, Gruff is discovered by curious and empathetic animal fairy Fawn, who sees something special in his glowing green eyes. His penchant for stacking rocks mystifies Fawn and her friends—but Gruff’s true purpose is the real surprise.

The film, releasing in-home March 3, 2015, also features the voices of Mae Whitman (Tinker Bell), Megan Hilty (Rosetta), Lucy Liu (Silvermist), Raven Symone (Iridessa), Anjelica Huston (Queen Clarion) and is directed by Steve Loter (“Kim Possible”) and produced by Makul Wigert (“Secret of the Wings”).

But this animal—massive and strange with glowing green eyes—is not really welcome in Pixie Hollow, and the scout fairies are determined to capture the mysterious beast before it destroys their home. Fawn, who sees a tender heart beneath his gruff exterior, must convince Tink and the girls to risk everything to rescue the NeverBeast before time runs out. Directed by Steve Loter (“Kim Possible”) and produced by Makul Wigert (“Secret of the Wings”), “Legend of the NeverBeast” roars to life in March 3, 2015.

 It seems like there are more and more movies coming out and so many of them so fantastic. Here is another one. My nephew loves boats and I think he would love this. I can’t wait to see it with him.

Walt Disney Animation Studios revealed plans today for MOANA, a sweeping, CG-animated comedy-adventure about a spirited teenager on an impossible mission to fulfill her ancestors’ quest. In theaters in late 2016, the film is directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker (“The Little Mermaid,” “The Princess and the Frog,” “Aladdin”). All of the current details are below and feel free to share with your readers!

WALT DISNEY ANIMATION STUDIOS SETS SAIL WITH “MOANA”

Ron Clements and John Musker (“Aladdin,” “The Princess and the Frog”)

Helm the Epic Comedy-Adventure

BURBANK, Calif. (Oct. 20, 2014) Walt Disney Animation Studios revealed plans today for “Moana,” a sweeping, CG-animated comedy-adventure about a spirited teenager on an impossible mission to fulfill her ancestors’ quest. In theaters in late 2016, the film is directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker (“The Little Mermaid,” “The Princess and the Frog,” “Aladdin”).

“John and I have partnered on so many films—from ‘The Little Mermaid’ to ‘Aladdin’ to ‘The Princess and the Frog,’” said Clements. “Creating ‘Moana’ is one of the great thrills of our career. It’s a big adventure set in this beautiful world of Oceania.”

In the ancient South Pacific world of Oceania, Moana, a born navigator, sets sail in search of a fabled island. During her incredible journey, she teams up with her hero, the legendary demi-god Maui, to traverse the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous sea creatures, breathtaking underworlds and ancient folklore.

“Moana is indomitable, passionate and a dreamer with a unique connection to the ocean itself,” Musker said. “She’s the kind of character we all root for, and we can’t wait to introduce her to audiences.”

Producer:                                  Kristina Reed

“Feast,” a new short from first-time director Patrick Osborne (head of animation for “Paperman”) and Walt Disney Animation Studios, is the story of one man’s love life as seen through the eyes of his best friend and dog, Winston, and revealed bite by bite through the meals they share.

 

Notes:

His experimental short “Pet” was a hit among his fellow Disney artists. Osborne, whose credits Disney’s 2010 feature “Tangled” and 2012’s Oscar®-winning short “Paperman,” for which he served as head of animation, was later tapped as co-head of animation for the upcoming feature “Big Hero 6.”  But his plans changed when he pitched the idea for “Feast” as part of WDAS’ new shorts program—the project was greenlit with Osborne as director.

Baymax’s shape is based on the underside of a Japanese bell. Rice cookers were also looked at for the shape of Baymax.

Animators coined the term “unanimation” to describe Baymax’s limited movements and stripped down, simplistic look.

Original designs had a mouth on Baymax but he looked more robotic without one.

Jin Kim (Character Designer Supervsior) studied his daughter’s 14 year old Japanese American friend to achieve the look of Hiro.

NOTES:

?       Miguel Arteta won the 2001 Independent Spirit Award for best feature under $500,000 for “Chuck & Buck.”

?       “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day,” published in 1972, was written by Judith Viorst,   illustrated by Ray Cruz and inspired by Viorst’s sons Alexander, Anthony and Nicholas. With more than 2 million copies in print, it became an ALA Notable Children’s Book and won a George G. Stone Center Recognition of Merit, a Georgia Children’s Book Award, and distinction as a Reading Rainbow book. The book’s success spawned three sequels: “Alexander, Who Used to Be Rich Last Sunday” (1978), “Alexander, Who’s Not (Do You Hear Me?  I Mean It!) Going to Move” (1995), and the brand-new “Alexander, Who’s Trying His Best to Be the Best Boy Ever” (2014).
?       The 1972 original, which has never before been the subject of a feature film, was adapted to the small screen in 1990 as an HBO animated musical with music by composer Charles Strouse.. In 1998, Viorst  collaborated with composer Shelley Markham on a stage musical of “Alexander” for the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. Disney’s “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” is the first live-action film adaptation of the children’s classic.
