Walt Disney Animation Studios Announces Moana

MOANA

Walt Disney Animation Studios revealed plans today for “Moana,” a sweeping, CG-animated comedy-adventure about a spirited teenager on an impossible mission to fulfill her ancestors’ quest. In theaters in late 2016, the film is directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker (“The Little Mermaid,” “The Princess and the Frog,” “Aladdin”).

“John and I have partnered on so many films—from ‘The Little Mermaid’ to ‘Aladdin’ to ‘The Princess and the Frog,’” said Clements. “Creating ‘Moana’ is one of the great thrills of our career. It’s a big adventure set in this beautiful world of Oceania.”

In the ancient South Pacific world of Oceania, Moana, a born navigator, sets sail in search of a fabled island. During her incredible journey, she teams up with her hero, the legendary demi-god Maui, to traverse the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous sea creatures, breathtaking underworlds and ancient folklore.

“Moana is indomitable, passionate and a dreamer with a unique connection to the ocean itself,” Musker said. “She’s the kind of character we all root for, and we can’t wait to introduce her to audiences.”

Tomorrowland Teaser Trailer

TL_Tsr_1-Sht_v4_Lg

Disney released the first trailer for the sci-fi-fantasy film Tomorrowland today, and they’re calling it Harry Potter for science nerds.

George Clooney narrates the teaser, where we see Under the Dome’s Britt Robertson as the protagonist of the film set in a futuristic world (loosely based on the amusement park’s themed world).

“What Hogwarts is to magic, Tomorrowland is to science: They are both easy to find if you are a wizard and very difficult to find if you’re a Muggle,” Tomorrowland screenwriter Damon Lindelof told Entertainment Weekly.

“Walt Disney is not a character in our movie, but he is referenced as having some involvement in this mysterious place called Tomorrowland, as a huge futurist and aficionado of space travel, rocketry, cities of the future, and space travel.”

Robertson portrays Casey Newton, a girl from Florida who finds a magical pin that gives her the ability to transport to a different world. She meets jaded, shut-in scientist Frank Walker (Clooney), and together they unearth more about this enigmatic world. He tells her in the trailer, “What if there was a place, a secret place, where nothing was impossible, a miraculous place where you could actually change the world? You wanna go?”

Hugh Laurie stars in the film as well as Raffey Cassidy, Judy Greer, Kathryn Hahn, Keegan-Michael Key, Tim McGraw and Thomas Robinson.

Tomorrowland will be released in theaters on May 22, 2015.

The Teaser Trailer For Pixar’s Inside Out

IMG_2495

For our first glimpse at the world of Inside Out, Disney/Pixar’s newest classic-in-the-making, the animation giant really wants to remind you how many awesome movies they’ve already made. The trailer consists of a lot of footage from previous Pixar efforts like Toy Story, The Incredibles and Monsters, Inc. Check it out below!

FullSizeRender

Here’s the synopsis:

Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it’s no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley’s main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.

Inside Out is written and directed by Pete Docter (Monsters, Inc., Up) with co-director Ronnie del Carmen. It is due for release June 19, 2015, only five months before Pixar’s next effort The Good Dinosaur opens on November 25, 2015.
