Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has announced that it will be bringing the ‘Spike Lee Joint’ collection of films to Blu-ray for the first time on June 10, 2014. As an added literal bonus, the films will feature all new audio commentary by Lee as well as talent from the respective films along with classic bonus content. Details are as follows:
Walt Disney Records and Vevo today debuted the music video for ‘I’ll Get You What You Want (Cockatoo in Malibu)’ performed by songwriter and Oscar winner Bret McKenzie of Flight of the Conchords, from the original motion picture soundtrack now available from Amazon and iTunes. In addition, the track is also being made available as a free bonus download when you purchase a ticket in advance for the film from Fandango.
In the film (and on the soundtrack), the song is performed by Constantine in an attempt to win over Miss Piggy by promising her virtually anything she dreams of.
Walt Disney Studios and Disneynature have provided us with nearly a dozen new hi-res stills from their upcoming film, Bears, which focuses on Sky and her cubs, Scout and Amber. The new stills also introduce us to Chinook and Magnus as well as a wolf who goes by the name of Tikaani.
She had wings once, she explained to Aurora in the newest trailer for Maleficent — they were taken from her. And now a new promo for the film (May 30, 2014), titled ‘Evil is Complicated’ features a small amount of new footage including this scene in which Maleficent is forced to come to terms with having her wings removed — presumably by force. You can find the new promo embedded below.
Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has just shared a portion of one of the bonus features that will appear on The Pirate Fairy (April 1, 2014, pre-order). The bonus feature, which totals almost 4 1/2 minutes in length, is titled ‘Second Star to the Right: The Legacy of Never Land’ and explores the influence of Never Land from Peter Pan through the new film.
In addition, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has also launched DisneysPirateFairyInfograph.com, an interactive website that chronicles Never Land’s contribution to Disney over the past several decades through the use of images and video.
Earlier today, IMAX and Walt Disney Studios cemented their distribution agreement by announcing that several films beyond Captain America: The Winter Soldier will also debut in IMAX format. Films for the remainder of 2014 include Maleficent (May 30) and Guardians of the Galaxy (August 1).
In 2015, planned releases include Avengers: Age of Ultron (May 1), Tomorrowland (May 22) and Star Wars: Episode VII (December 18).
In addition, IMAX recently previewed its exclusive 13″ x 19″ mini poster for Captain America: The Winter Soldier that will be handed out to those that attend the midnight screenings when the film opens. We have included it here in much larger resolution (see left).
In honor of the release of the full length trailer for Maleficent (May 30, 2014), Walt Disney Studios has provided us with two new high-res stills from Maleficent, in theaters May 30, 2014. The new stills have been added to the beginning of our gallery embedded below.
When it comes to future film productions, Iger announced that The Incredibles director Brad Bird is working on the story for a sequel. He also acknowledged that Disney/Pixar is working on a third installment of the Cars franchise. While he had little to offer on the Star Wars Episode VII front, he did state that the story takes place thirty years after the Return of the Jedi installment and will feature ‘familiar faces’ as well as a ‘trio of young new faces.’
Maleficent explores the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the classic Sleeping Beauty and the elements of her betrayal that ultimately turn her pure heart to stone. Driven by revenge and a fierce desire to protect the moors over which she presides, Maleficent cruelly places an irrevocable curse upon the human king’s newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Aurora is caught in the middle of the seething conflict between the forest kingdom she has grown to love and the human kingdom that holds her legacy. Maleficent realizes that Aurora may hold the key to peace in the land and is forced to take drastic actions that will change both worlds forever.
