John Williams Tribute

D23 News: Disney and Pixar

This last weekend was the annual D23 convention, which, if you are not familiar with, is a magical time filled with everything Disney. It’s truly the best time of the year.

Now, we’ve already brought to you all the amazing Star Wars news (which you can find here). Today, we’re on all of the remaining Disney animation and Pixar news.

zootopia

First off, Disney gave us updates on Zootopia, a film featuring cute anthropomorphic animals in a modern civilization slated for 2016.  Ginnifer Goodwin, known as Snow White on ABC’s Once Upon a Time, helped introduce us to her character, an adorable little bunny named Judy who is trying really hard to be a cop (a position normally reserved for larger animals like rhinos). While fighting her way to the top, she comes across Nick, a con artist fox, voiced by Jason Bateman.  The combination between con and cop, fox and rabbit will undoubtedly bring some light-hearted fun to the Disney cannon.  Look for this film out March 2016.

Also slated for a 2016 release is Moana, the epic story of a strong young girl from the South Pacific.  Already on board as voice cast is Dwayne Johnson as a demi-god Moana meets on her travels, and Alan Tudyk, a Disney favorite, in a unnamed role.  D23 released multiple concept pictures as well as one beautiful image of Johnson’s character in full (pictured above).  Expect to see Moana join the popular Disney Princess franchise in 2017.

Lastly, D23 was the place to announce new projects this year, including the latest addition to the Disney cannon, Gigantic, what is promised to be a Disney reworking of the classic tale Jack and the Beanstalk.  The 2018 release plans to be set in Spain during the “Age of Exploration” where the titular Jack meets a young girl giant and promises to help get her home.  With Nathan Greno helming and the Lopez couple responsible for the popular Frozen soundtrack behind the score, the film is already set for massive success.

On the Pixar side of things, we got loads of announcements!  The teaser posters for four new sequels were revealed.  While movies like Finding Dory and The Incredibles 2 had been previously announced, they also confirmed Toy Story 4 and Cars 3.  Toy Story 4, written by Will McCormack and Rashida Jones, was said to be focused on a romance between Woody and Bo Peep.  Hopefully they’ll explain her absence during Toy Story 3. Joining comedian Ellen DeGeneres in Finding Dory is a wide variety of stars including Always Sunny in Philadelphia actress Kaitlin Olson, and Modern Family alum Ed O’Neill and Ty Burrell.  This sequel has long been championed by DeGeneres through her daytime talk show.

Pixar also released information regarding an original story in the works entitled Coco, a film inspired by Mexico’s Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) holiday. The brief synopsis for the film follows a 12 year old boy named Miguel in Mexico who sets off a chain of events that will change him forever on Day of the Dead.  The artists claim to be inspired by the gorgeous visualizations of the holiday.  While the film has not been slotted for a release date, Pixar has dates in November 2017 and 2018 reserved.

Lastly, D23 celebrate the anticipated return of Kingdom Hearts with related announcements for Kingdom Hearts 3 and Disney Infinity, 3.0.  Kingdom Hearts 3 will feature the transformable keyblade, available for every keyblade in the game. Each will have its own unique transformation(s) that should enhance both the weapon and the gameplay.  Some featured transformations included keyblades to projectiles, larger attacks, or more power.  The big news for KH3, however, were the reveals of two new worlds to visit: Tangled and San Fransokyo from Big Hero 6.  The keyblade will also be available as the newest weapon in Disney Infinity, 3.0 along with a special edition King Mickey figure.

Disney Infinity, 3.0 focused on many of their newest additions, including upcoming figures from The Good Dinosaur and Zootopia. They’re introducing a completely new Marvel Playset entitled “Marvel Battlegrounds” featuring the brand new playable characters of Ultron and Hulkbuster Iron Man.  While most news regarding the Star Wars figures had already been announced, they did get all the fanboys in a twist by revealing that there would be limited special edition figures with light-up light saber capability once placed on the game pad.  Star Wars: The Force Awakens actors John Boyega and Daisy Ridley were presented with their own playable figures of their characters’ likenesses, the first from the new anthology of films.

Obviously there are tons of reasons to be pumped for the next few years at Disney.  Between Star Wars parks, and 5 Pixar films, and Kingdom Hearts 3, and so many new figures for Disney Infinity…I’m going to be so broke.

How about you? What are you most looking forward to from Disney? Comment below!
