Walt Disney Studios Spain has released its second trailer for Pixar Animation Studio’s Inside Out (June 19, 2015), which you can find embedded below. While it shares some footage in common with the recent domestic trailer(s), there’s plenty of new animation in here including Riley as an infant (in which it appears Joy and Sadness first meet), as a toddler and then growing into her 11 year old age that we see through the majority of the film. Also featured are the ‘train of thought’ and what may very well be our first official head-on glimpse of Bing Bong, who appears to be with both Joy and Sadness inside long term memory before escorting them through Imagination Land and Dream Productions, which certainly appears to fit with his rumored position in the film.
Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has released a new clip from one of the bonus features for the Blu-ray and digital release of Into the Woods, available to own on March 24, 2015 (now available for pre-order). The clip, from the bonus feature titled ‘The Cast as Good as Gold’ features Meryl Streep, James Corden and Anna Kendrick discussing working on the film.
Additional bonus features are as follows:
According to a source who wishes to remain anonymous, despite claiming a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) was not required on their behalf, the voice being lent to the Bing Bong character in Pixar’s upcoming film, Inside Out (June 19, 2015), belongs to none other than comedic actor Richard Kind. The information was obtained via a test screening recently held for the film. No stranger to the Pixar Animation Studios roster, Kind has previously voiced peripheral characters for A Bug’s Life, Cars and Toy Story 3. Bing Bong, believed to be the childhood imaginary friend of protagonist Riley, can actually be spotted several times in the most recent trailer for the film, both in whole and in parts — he’s the one seen leading Joy and Sadness into ‘Imagination Land’ and through ‘Dream Productions,’ as well as riding on the rocket device that expels rainbows.
Even if you aren’t a fan of Disney, there is probably little doubt you’ve heard some of the news coming out of the annual shareholder meeting that was held earlier today at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco: a Frozen 2 sequel is in the works and Star Wars: Rogue One is headed to a galaxy near you in 2016.
And then there are the parts you didn’t get to hear and see, the clips — unless, of course, you were in the at-capacity audience. Fortunately, I was one of them and I am about to detail (to the best of my memory) what I heard and saw when the live stream was blocked.
The Topps Company, Inc. today announced ‘Star Wars: Card Trader,’ the official Star Wars digital trading card app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Available now exclusively on the App Store, ‘Star Wars: Card Trader’ brings the thrill of the chase of digital collecting to Star Wars fans everywhere.

While most of the viral marketing you know that’s tied to Tomorrowland is actually the work of unofficial fanbois, Walt Disney Studios Japan has one for the books. Last night, Walt Disney Studios Japan uploaded and then immediately removed a new trailer for Brad Bird’s Tomorrowland (May 22, 2015) which features tons of new footage and hints of the plot details that noone stateside wants you to see. This is viral marketing at its best.
With what appears to be a decision reversal for Disney Music, the original song composed for Frozen Short by Oscar winning couple Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, ‘Making Today A Perfect Day’ is now available for purchase as a single from iTunes. Those who purchased the physical CD of the original motion picture soundtrack to Cinderella can also download the song free of charge with the provided code.
We sincerely apologize for earlier reports from us which explicitly suggested that this would not be the case and that the Cinderella soundtrack would be the only way to obtain the new Frozen Fever tune for the foreseeable future, but this was based on information that we were provided directly from Disney Music.
The royally opulent gown is inspired by costume designer Sandy Powell’s hand painted dress that Ella (Lily James) wears in the film, but re-imagined as an embroidered gown for brides looking to channel their inner princess. The lavishly embroidered fairy-tale dress features a flattering basque waist and full skirt made of organza, satin and tulle. The dress is available in three color options: Light Gold with multi-colored flowers, All White or All Ivory. It is also available strapless or with sheer organza long-fitted sleeves as in the film, starting at $1899 suggested retail. It will be available beginning mid-April at Alfred Angelo stores in the U.S. and specialty retailers worldwide.
