The Disney domain elves were hard at work yesterday, registering every possible combination involving the words ‘the movie.’ Many appear to be titles that Disney will distribute for DreamWorks, but others are literally screaming out future (or current) Disney projects.
Alphabetically speaking, ANT-MAN-THEMOVIE.COM comes first. Immediately rumored to have been the first Pixar project since the acquisition, Stan Lee mentioned last month on his twitter that Marvel was moving forward with the project which had been in the works for some time.
Also it appears Tow Mater is having some thoughts about exploring the final frontier. Lunar Mater (LUNARMATER.COM), Moon Mater (MOONMATER.COM) and Right Stuff Mater (RIGHTSTUFFMATER.COM) have all been registered. We also have Mater PI (MATERPI.COM) and Investigator Mater (INVESTIGATORMATER.COM) so it appears some new Cars Toons may be on the way.
On the DreamWorks front, Disney has registered domain names for upcoming DreamWorks films: Eat, Sleep, Poop (EATSLEEPPOOPMOVIE.COM), Escape Artist (ESCAPEARTIST-MOVIE.COM), Good Looking (GOODLOOKING-THEMOVIE.COM), I Saw You (ISAWYOU-THEMOVIE.COM), Nonstop (NONSTOP-MOVIE.COM), Robopocalypse (ROBOPOCALYPSE-MOVIE.COM), War Horse (WARHORSE-MOVIE.COM) and Wife vs. Ninja (WIFEVSNINJAMOVIE.COM).
But that’s not all! There are several that could not easily be identified as either Disney or DreamWorks projects (so if you know, please tell us!). They include: A True Story (ATRUESTORY-MOVIE.COM and ATRUESTORY-THEMOVIE.COM), CA Rancho Film (CARANCHOFILM.COM), Classy Lady (CLASSYLADYMOVIE.COM), Denver International Airport (DENVERINTERNATIONALAIRPORTMOVIE.COM), Genneris (GENNERIS.COM and GENNERISMOVIE.COM), Home Movies (HOMEMOVIES-THEMOVIE.COM), Me Harmony (MEHARMONYMOVIE.COM), Ra (RA-MOVIE.COM).
My fingers want me to type that’s all, but it’s not. There are some remaining unidentifyable titles that might actually be new titles for upcoming Disney releases. Last year, Disneynature announced it would distribute Jean-Michel Cousteau’s OceanWorld 3D, not to be confused with its upcoming Earth Day release Oceans. Perhaps they have opted to rename it in North America instead calling it Odyssea 3D (ODYSSEA3D.COM and ODYSSEA3DMOVIE.COM).
And lastly, since they’ve just done it with Rapunzel, it appears that Walt Disney Studios might be seeking a more moviegoer friendly title for Secretariat than Secretariat as it has registered names for both Taking the Crown (TAKINGTHECROWN.COM and TAKINGTHECROWNMOVIE.COM) and Triple Crown (TRIPLECROWNMOVIE.COM). I’m also now moving When the Trumpets Sound (WHENTHETRUMPETSSOUND.COM and WHENTHETRUMPETSSOUND-THEMOVIE.COM) into this category because it appears to be a good allusion to the trumpet call that’s made prior to a horse race. Likewise, Great Lengths (GREATLENGTHSMOVIE.COM) could easily be applied as a replacement title.
