With all the heart and humor audiences expect from Walt Disney Animation Studios, Big Hero 6 is an action-packed comedy adventure about robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada, who learns to harness his genius — thanks to his brilliant brother Tadashi and their like-minded friends: adrenaline junkie Go Go Tamago, clean freak Wasabi, chemistry whiz Honey Lemon and fanboy Fred. When a devastating turn of events catapults them into the midst of a dangerous plot unfolding in the streets of San Fransokyo, Hiro turns to his closest companion — a cutting-edge robot named Baymax—and transforms the group into a band of high-tech heroes determined to solve the mystery. Inspired by the Marvel comics of the same name, and featuring comic-book style action and all the heart and humor audiences expect from Walt Disney Animation Studios.

Walt Disney Studios UK has released a new behind-the-scenes featurette from Maleficent (May 30, 2014), titled ‘On the Battlefield.’ In the featurette, the cast and crew go on site for the filming of the great battle between the Moors (headed by Maleficent) and King Henry’s army.
Gushing over the concept art for Maleficent over and over? Guilty. The official Evil is the New Black blog, which gave us our first doses of the concept art (see the growing gallery embedded below), has now posted yet another image seen here which features Maleficent as she approaches King Stefan’s castle. Perhaps most interesting, however, is that the castle itself appears to take some direction from another castle: Sleeping Beauty Castle in Disneyland, which was so-named not because of its resemblance to any structure in the 1959 animated film, but simply to promote the film (well before it opened, no less).
Walt Disney Studios has released a new clip from Maleficent (May 30, 2014), titled ‘In The Clouds.’ In the clip, which can be found embedded below, you can catch a glimpse at what Maleficent enjoys doing most — soaring through and above the Moors with the aid of her incredible wings.
Walt Disney Studios has released a new clip from Maleficent (May 30, 2014), titled ‘Fairy Godmother.’ In the clip, which can be found embedded below, Aurora has just awoken to find herself deep in the Moors filled with strange, fantastical creatures.

As we announced yesterday, Disney Interactive today released ‘Maleficent Free Fall’ for Apple iOS and Android devices (now available through the App Store and Google Play respectively), the follow-up to its highly successful (and addictive) ‘Frozen Free Fall.’ So how does the new game stack up versus its predecessor? After about an hour and several levels of play, here’s my take:
Walt Disney Studios has just released a new featurette for Maleficent (May 30, 2014) titled ‘Light vs Dark’ which features Angelina Jolie, Elle Fanning and director Robert Stromberg talking about the focus of the film. The featurette also features a little bit of new footage. You can find the featurette embedded below.
Walt Disney Studios has released a new clip from Maleficent (May 30, 2014), titled ‘Queen of the Moors.’ The clip, which can be found embedded below, shows how the Moors have been changed since Maleficent became the de facto leader, ensuring that all potential contact with the human world be cut off by creating the wall of thorns.
