WATCH: ‘Big Hero 6′ Music Video for ‘Story’ by AI (Japanese, Minor Spoilers)

'Story' by AI (Music Video)If there is an emotion to be found in something, you can always count on Walt Disney Studios Japan to exploit it. In this case, they just published the Big Hero 6 music video for AI’s ‘Story,’ presented here in Japanese (if you want to hear the English version which has been released internationally, we have it here).

The music video, which features original animation, tells the message of the song as it applies to the film: when Hiro’s treasured relationship with older brother Tadashi is lost and he feels like he can never recover, he finds solace and a brand new relationship in Tadashi’s legacy, Baymax.

Disney to Conjure Up Some ‘Strange Magic’ with Mysterious Film Project – UPDATED

'Strange Magic' from LucasfilmUPDATE: After Stitch Kingdom’s reporting on Disney’s myserious Strange Magic project, news has finally come to light. Lucasfilm has announced that Strange Magic is its own title which will be distributed through Disney’s Touchstone label with a slated release date of January 23, 2015.

Strange Magic is a ‘madcap fairy tale musical inspired by ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream.’ Popular songs from the past six decades help tell the tale of a colorful cast of goblins, elves, fairies and imps, and their hilarious misadventures sparked by the battle over a powerful potion. Lucasfilm Animation Singapore and Industrial Light & Magic, which created the CGI animation for 2011’s Academy Award-winning film Rango, bring to life the fanciful forest turned upside down.’

‘Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens’ Title Treatment in Ultra High Resolution

Star Wars: The Force AwakensIn addition to news on Toy Story 4 and the mysterious Strange Magic, Walt Disney Studios and Lucasfilm also caused a near meltdown today when they casually announced that Star Wars: The Force Awakens (December 18, 2015) had completed principal photography (and oh! it has a subtitle too, we guess).

To commemorate the neo-historic event, a title treatment for the film was also revealed. Through a few mindtricks of our own, we managed to get our hands on an ultra high res version of the title treatment (20+ megapixels in fact) and are presenting it here to you in its full glory. Fortunately most of it is space and as it turns out, space compresses pretty well, so we didn’t have to reduce it to get it here.
