Disney/Pixar’s Finding Dory reunites everyone’s favourite forgetful blue tang, Dory, with her friends Nemo and Marlin on a search for answers about her past. What can she remember? Who are her parents? And where did she learn to speak Whale?
Several days ago, we noted on Twitter that Walmart had begun accepting pre-orders for Star Wars: The Force Awakens with a dummy release date of 12/31/16. While we accept that Walmart may do this type of pre-order often, we rarely see them do so with Disney titles without a semi-solid release date. Apparently their system can’t handle the ability to accept pre-orders without a release date like Amazon does and given that the title is such a hot seller, we can’t argue the temptation.
Following the release of the first teaser trailer for its Disney’s upcoming remake of Pete’s Dragon (August 12, 2016), Walt Disney Studios has provided us with three hi-res stills from the film, one of which offers a very up close look at Elliott the dragon.
Earlier this evening, during ABC’s ‘The Wonderful World of Disney: Disneyland 60’ special, Walt Disney Studios released the first teaser trailer for its upcoming remake of Pete’s Dragon (August 12, 2016), which you can find embedded below.
Walt Disney Studios has released a motion poster for its upcoming remake of Pete’s Dragon (August 12, 2016). With no official word, we still expect the first teaser trailer to be released this Sunday during ABC’s ‘The Wonderful World of Disney: Disneyland 60’ (see our original report here).
Marvel Studios has begun principal photography at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta, Georgia, on Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which is slated to hit U.S. theaters on May 5, 2017. The production will shoot at Atlanta’s Pinewood Studios.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is written and directed by James Gunn. The film marks the return of the original Guardians, including Chris Pratt as Peter Quill/Star-Lord; Zoe Saldana as Gamora; Dave Bautista as Drax; Vin Diesel as the voice of Groot; Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket; Michael Rooker as Yondu; Karen Gillan as Nebula; and Sean Gunn as Kraglin. New cast members include Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, Chris Sullivan and Kurt Russell.
Hasbro offered the world its first look at upcoming dolls in support of Disney’s Moana (November 23, 2016). The image shown here came from Hasbro’s investors day presentation, one day before the New York International Toy Fair is slated to begin. Pictured here are dolls representing Moana herself as well as Maui.
Three thousand years ago, the greatest sailors in the world voyaged across the vast South Pacific, discovering the many islands of Oceania. But then, for a millennium, their voyages stopped — and no one today knows why.
If you hadn’t seen the presentation at the Disney D23 Expo last year, you might have reason to believe that Disney’s Pete’s Dragon remake is as imaginary as Elliott himself. With the movie debuting on August 12, 2016, Disney marketing has had its hands full with films like The Finest Hours, Zootopia, Captain America: Civil War, The Jungle Book, Alice Through The Looking Glass, Finding Dory and The BFG to promote. Yet the public has still seen more of Moana and Doctor Strange than it has of Pete’s Dragon — not even a first look image.
In addition to featuring Marlin, Dory and newly introduced pals Hank the Septopus, Destiny the Whale Shark and Bailey the Beluga Whale, we also see returning favorites Squirt, Sheldon and Tad (although Monogram’s product description names Pearl).
However, seen here but not named (presumably identified by ‘Exclusive A’ and ‘Exclusive B’) are what appear to be a sea otter — who has been briefly mentioned in the past — as well as a grumpy looking sea lion.
