You Won't Believe Your Eye!

Beauty and the Beast and The Lion King have already been rereleased in 3D and Finding Nemo will return in 3D later this month. Next January, it will be Monsters, Inc.‘s turn to get the 3D treatment and to tease the film’s forthcoming rerelease, Disney/Pixar has revealed the first movie poster for the film.

Last month we learned that Disney/Pixar are planning a sequel film to the hugely popular animated film Finding Nemo. Today we learn that Ellen DeGeneres, who voices the Nemo character Dory, is in “serious talks” to reprise her role for this planned sequel film. IMHO, the only way you can do a Finding Nemo 2 film without Ellen DeGeneres is to cut out the character of Dory altogether … and it doesn’t make sense to me to do that. Click below to learn more about Ellen‘s negotiations to get back into the recording booth and voice Dory back to life. More »
The Biebs Gets Animated
Justin Bieber broke the news on his official Twitter profile that he will be guest starring on an upcoming episode of The Simpsons. It would appear that JB jumped the gun with his announcement because the tweet has since been deleted … but Simpsons producer Al Jean has confirmed that, YES, The Biebs will make his animated debut on the show in a small cameo role.

A Redux of 'The Snow Queen'
Back in 2010, it was reported that Disney decided to try and market its animated take on the Rapunzel fairytale to boys by titling the film Tangled and focusing on the swashbuckling nature of the story (the reasoning was because it was believed audiences had tired of Princess fairytale stories). Around that time, it was also reported that Disney was planning to move away from adapting classic fairytales altogether. It would seem that the plan to move away from Princess fairytale stories is no longer … because today we learn that Disney is planning its 12th Princess film for next year, a film titled Frozen that is based on the classic tale The Snow Queen.

That-Ish-Cray Of The Day
Mike Senna is a total genius with a heart of gold, and he’s making children everywhere very, very happy. Well-known for creating an R2-D2 replica back in 2003, Mike took on another project a few years ago; bringing Pixar‘s robot WALL·E to life. Children and adults alike flock to see his spot-on re-creation (I know I’m planning a trip), but Mike had a special group of children in mind as he worked (and worked) on this robot over the last two years. Using the 2008 movie as his only blueprint, Mike studied frame after frame of WALL·E‘s movements and construction. The result? A real, live robot (sort of– it’s controlled by Mike) with ginormous eyes in which you can happily lose yourself. Meet Mike and WALL·E in the video; it’s so amazingly cray, I just had to share it with you guys! Also, you can learn more about WALL·E on Mike‘s blog, here.
And I know he probably gets this alot… but I reaaalllly want to know if his

This Summer, with the theatrical release of Ice Age: Continental Drift, Fox is releasing a 3D animated short film starring The Simpsons. Er, actually, the short film, titled The Longest Daycare, really only stars one member of the The Simpson family — Maggie Simpson. And, as I understand it, most if not all of the film features no dialog (which is understandable because baby Maggie has only ever uttered one word in her animated life). Click below to watch a short trailer for The Longest Daycare and get your first taste of this new Simpsons animated short. More »
