Blink And You Miss It
On Sunday we learned that Justin Bieber was scheduled to make his animated debut on The Simpsons later that night and today, in case you missed it (and honestly, if you blinked at the right moment you probably did miss it) you can watch his Simpsons debut below. JB‘s appearance on the show was short … very short. As you can see in the screencaps and video below, Bieber was turned away from Bart Simpson‘s 10-and-Below Talent Show because, of course, The Biebs is over 10 years old. That was the gag, seriously. Click below to see Bieber in animated action … I mean, let’s be real, you know you want to see. More »

May the Farce Be With You
Last October we learned the somewhat surprising news that the Walt Disney Company purchased the Lucasfilm Company (including all of its properties, like Star Wars and Indiana Jones) for a little over $4 billion dollars. Since that sale took place, we’ve been hearing a lot about the forthcoming release of new Star Wars films from the Disney Company. But it wasn’t until this week that Disney decided to release the first Star Wars promo image that shows the world that the Mouse is Boss of the Star Wars universe now.

Disney is Also KILLING Traditional 2D Animation
Now that the live action Disney film Oz the Great and Powerful is the first blockbuster hit of 2013 the company is looking forward to other films to bring to the theatrical market. Beauty and the Beast is one of Disney‘s greatest and most beloved animated films … so it should come as no surprise that the company is reportedly interested in adapting the tale for a live action film. While this may sound like good news to some, I must also share the bad news that Disney has reportedly decided to stop making traditional 2D hand-drawn animated films :( That means that masterpiece films like Disney‘s Beauty and the Beast will likely never be made again … at least, not in the foreseeable future.

The new Superman film, Man of Steel, is due to hit theaters in June but the promo push for the flick is chugging along … very quietly. Back in December we got our first look at the first movie poster for Man of Steel, then we got the second movie trailer for the film (the first tease came back in July of last year around Comic-Con time). Since then, there hasn’t been much promo save for that Empire magazine coverstory in January. Today we get to see some new promo art for Superman books aimed at kids that will tie-in with the Man of Steel release in June. The art was created by Jeremy Roberts and gives us an animated look at what Superman and his nemesis General Zod will look like in the film. The illustrations are neat, check ‘em out below. More »
