The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences named its nominees for the upcoming 86th Academy Awards, which will air in the United States on ABC on Sunday, March 2, 2014. While Saving Mr. Banks was snubbed from most of the main categories, it managed to garner a nomination for Best Original Score by Thomas Newman. But it was Walt Disney Animation Studios that shined this year, for two unsurprising nominations for Frozen: ‘Let It Go’ for Best Original Song (Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez) and Best Animated Feature where it will compete against Disney’s other contender, Studio Ghibli’s The Wind Rises.
Walt Disney Studios and Marvel Studios have shared with us the first minute of their new One Shot, titled ‘All Hail the King’ which will be featured as one of the bonuses on the February 25 release of Thor: The Dark World Blu-ray (pre-order), which we have embedded below.
The short takes place after the events of Iron Man 3 in which Trevor Slattery is now an infamous icon. He’s also locked up in a high-security prison. Luckily, his newfound profile has brought him celebrity and protection on the inside — and the actor has gladly agreed to an in-depth profile with a documentary filmmaker. The short stars Sir Ben Kingsley — reprising his role — and Scoot McNairy.
Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has announced that Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Minnie-rella will be available to down on DVD on February 11, 2014 (now available for pre-order, three days before it is set to premiere on Disney Channel and Disney Junior, on February 14.
In the special episode, our pals need to get Minnie a surprise present, so they keep her busy with plenty of chores to do at the Clubhouse. Tired from so much work, Minnie falls asleep and dreams that she is Minnie-rella! Inspired by the fairy tale of Cinderella, the story of Minnie-rella sparkles with music and fun as we recognize our favorite Clubhouse characters in familiar roles.
In the next (and perhaps final) turn in a maze of confusion surrounding a 3D Blu-ray release of Disney’s Frozen, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has independently confirmed to us that there are no announced plans for a 3D release at this time, reminding us that Frozen will be available on Digital 3D on February 25, as per the initial announcement.

The Golden Globes that Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Frozen took home last night for Best Animated Feature was still warm when news that Disney Theatrical was prepping to head to the Broadway stage by way of Fortune.com. The article, which spoke of the film’s momentum, does use the term ‘Broadway’ twice (once in the headline), but never directly attributes it to Bob Iger, the CEO and Chairman of The Walt Disney Company.
As we first announced, one of the Blu-ray bonus features for Thor: The Dark World (available February 25) is a new Marvel One Shot titled All Hail the King. The short takes place after the events of Iron Man 3 in which Trevor Slattery is now an infamous icon. He’s also locked up in a high-security prison. Luckily, his newfound profile has brought him celebrity and protection on the inside — and the actor has gladly agreed to an in-depth profile with a documentary filmmaker. The short stars Sir Ben Kingsley — reprising his role — and Scoot McNairy.
After confirming the release of Disney’s Frozen on March 18, 2014, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has now released the list of bonus features that can be found on the Blu-ray edition of the film. You can find additional information below. Frozen is currently available for pre-order from Amazon or from Disney Store, which includes a set of exclusive lithographs.

Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment today has provided us with a new hi-res still from its upcoming Pixie Hollow film, The Pirate Fairy, available to own on Disney Blu-ray on April 1, 2014.
Instead of taking shots at other films, however, this particular ad pokes fun at the burgeoning marketing method of using the tweets of ‘ordinary folk,’ not actually reviewing the film, but instead just simply voicing the intent of seeing the film. All of the tweets/accounts named in the ad do actually exist (see embedded below), but they are obviously not genuine and were all generated for the sake of making the ad, embedded below.
