From Disney comes two-time Oscar® winner Brad Bird’s Tomorrowland, a riveting mystery adventure starring Academy Award® winner George Clooney.

What they must do there changes the world — and them — forever.
Promotion for the upcoming Disneynature film Monkey Kingdom (April 17, 2015) has been lackluster at best considering its release is less than a week away, but we finally have our first official clips from the film — as brief as they are — featuring narrator Tina Fey, which you can find embedded below.
We have also learned that the original song featured in the film is titled ‘It’s Our World’ and is performed by ‘The Voice’ season five runner-up, Jacquie Lee. The song was written by Matthew Tishler, Felicia Barton and Aaron Benward and will be released digitally on Tuesday, April 14, 2015. Disney Music will contribute a portion of each sale from the single — through May 12 — to the film’s benefactor, Conservation International.
ABC Family today announced it has greenlit pilots for ‘Gorgeous Morons’ and ‘Beyond.’ These two pilot greenlights come hot off the heels of the network picking up saga series ‘Shadowhunters’ and single camera comedy ‘Kevin From Work’ to series.

In a move that should bode well for the series currently in development, ABC and ABC Studios have applied for a trademark for ‘The Real O’Neals,’ a half-hour single-camera comedy that’s being executive produced by activist Dan Savage, creator of the ‘It Gets Better’ project. The series was formerly known under the working title of ‘Family of the Year.’ The official description for the series pilot is as follows:
