Video: ‘Finding Nemo 3D’ Gets Updated for Theatrical Release

Steven Spielberg did it. George Lucas did it. And now it appears that Pixar’s own Andrew Stanton is the next to go back and edit a film that had been previously released. As introduced recently on Ellen Degeneres’ talk show, Finding Nemo 3D, which will swim into theaters on September 14, takes synergy to a whole nother level. Whereas Apple is notorious for using Pixar film clips in advertising its products, Pixar has now taken to turning the tables and well.. you’ll see.

Sneak Peek: ‘Tangled Ever After’ (‘Rings’ Clip)

'Tangled Ever After'Yahoo! Movies has just released the first clip from the all new animated short Tangled Ever After which will play before Beauty and the Beast 3D beginning January 13.

Tangled Ever After picks up where Tangled left off. The Kingdom is in a festive mood as everyone gathers for the royal wedding of Rapunzel and Flynn. However, when Pascal and Maximus, as flower chameleon and ring bearer, respectively, lose the gold bands, a frenzied search and recovery mission gets underway. As the desperate duo tries to find the rings before anyone discovers that they’re missing, they leave behind a trail of comical chaos that includes flying lanterns, a flock of doves, a wine barrel barricade and a very sticky finale. Will Maximus and Pascal save the day and make it to the church in time? And will they ever get Flynn’s nose right?

New ‘Brave,’ ‘Frankenweenie’ Hi-Res Stills

Walt Disney Studios has provided us with its annual film preview for 2012 and, taking our cue from Gaston from Beauty and the Beast 3D (how’s that for a segue?), we can only make sense of reading material by the pictures. That said, while most of the imagery found in the preview has already been released, here’s a couple of images we didn’t readily recognize, nor did a cursory search turn them up.

‘Muppets,’ ‘Gnomeo,’ ‘Pooh’ Among Films Shortlisted for Original Song Oscar

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences today announced that 39 songs from eligible motion pictures have been shortlisted to be considered for nominees as Original Song fr the 84th Annual Academy Awards. Nine of the selected songs, which represents about 25% of the total list, come directly from Disney films. The number becomes even more impressive if you consider that two of the other shortlisted songs are affiliated with The Walt Disney Company: Star Spangled Man’ from Captain America: The First Avenger, which of course is a property of Disney’s own Marvel, and ‘The Living Proof’ from The Help, a DreamWorks film which was marketed and distributed by Disney’s Touchstone Pictures.

Pixar’s ‘Brave’ Involved in Trademark Dispute with Atlanta Braves

'If I Were an Atlanta Brave' by Joseph D'Andrea Princess Merida may be a force to reckon with when it comes to certain projectiles, but she won’t be proficient when it comes to baseballs or tomahawks if the Atlanta Braves have anything to say about it. While the recent news of Paramount Resources’ Pixar Petrolium is making a big splash, another significant war has been raging quietly on the trademark front — for months no less.

It all started back in March of last year when we reported on trademark applications which appeared to have been confirming a title change for what was then known as The Bear and the Bow, but is now known to be Brave.
