Disney’s ‘Tangled’ Clip: ‘Mother Gothel’

Walt Disney Animation Studios has just released this new clip from its upcoming release Tangled in which Mother Gothel (voiced by Donna Murphy)  returns to the tower in her usual fashion. It’s the eve of Rapunzel’s eighteenth birthday and it’s clear that her priorities don’t seem to align too well with the only mother she’s ever known.

First Look: First Trailer for ‘Winnie the Pooh’

Walt Disney Animation Studios has debuted the first official trailer for its 2011 release, Winnie the Pooh.  In the film, the first big-screen Pooh adventure in more than 35 years from Walt Disney Animation Studios who at last returns to the Hundred Acre Wood. With the charm, wit and whimsy of the original featurettes, this all-new movie reunites audiences with the philosophical “bear of very little brain” and friends Tigger, Rabbit, Piglet, Kanga, Roo—and last, but certainly not least, Eeyore, who has lost his tail.   “Well a tail is either there or it isn’t there,” said Pooh. “And yours isn’t… there.”  Owl sends the whole gang on a wild quest to save Christopher Robin from an imaginary culprit. It turns out to be a very busy day for a bear who simply set out to find some hunny. Inspired by five stories from A.A. Milne’s books in Disney’s classic, hand-drawn art style.

Disney’s ‘Tangled’ ‘Smolder by Flynn’ Viral Video Plus New Clip ‘The Snuggly Duckling’

Walt Disney Animation Studios has unveiled a new viral video in the form of ‘Smolder by Flynn,’ a send-up of those advertisements for fragrances that nobody outside France seems to quite understand. It includes a tiny bit of new footage, but essentially just recycles most of the original teaser trailer footage in a whole new way.

Through Apple’s iTunes trailer site, a new clip titled ‘Snuggly Duckling’ has also been released. In the scene, Flynn, who had been blackmailed into taking Rapunzel out of the tower to see the floating lanterns, decides to scare Rapunzel straight (straight back into the tower, that is) by introducing her to the home of a ragtag bunch of seemingly menacing thugs at a tavern called The Snuggly Duckling.

First Image: ‘The Muppets’ Movie Featuring New Muppet Walter

Jason Segel in Disney's 'The Muppets'Although the image has been introduced exclusively in the current issue of Entertainment Weekly, Walt Disney Studios has provided us with this version of the complete image that has no text overlaid on top of it as it appears in the magazine.

Written by Jason Segel and Nicholas Stoller, The Muppets (formerly The Greatest Movie Ever Made or The Cheapest Muppet Movie Ever Made) was first confirmed at the Disney D23 Expo in 2009 during then-chairman Dick Cook’s Studios presentation. The film focuses on a Muppet lover and his puppet Walter who set out to thwart the evil plans of an exaggerated villain (at least according to an early draft of the script we acquired).

Video: ‘TRON: Legacy’-Inspired Custom Skatecycle Hits the Streets

TRON: Legacy wasn’t the only show going on during ‘TRON Night,’ last week at New York City’s AMC Loews Lincoln Square IMAX theater. Outside, passer-bys were treated to a look at the custom TRON: Legacy-inspired skatecycle created by Brooklyn Workshop. An eye-catcher even in the standard white (which just happens to be reminiscent of Flynn’s lightcycle),  the one-off skatecycle takes its cue from the film’s lightcycles and uses electroluminescent (EL) wire to induce oohs and ahhs from the onlookers.

TRON: Legacy stars Jeff Bridges, Bruce Boxleitner, Garrett Hedlund and Olivia Wilde and opens nationwide in theaters on December 17.
