Cyclops Print Works To Release Inside Out Prints By Tom Whalen & Dave Perillo On February 5, 2016

Cyclops Print Works come will release two brand new Inside Out-inspired art prints by Tom Whalen and Dave Perillo on February 5, 2016 at noon (Pacific time).

The first print is a poster from Tom Whalen. The twelve-color print is 24” x 36” and has a hand-numbered run of 330.

The artist shared this about his process:

“I arrived at the final design you see after a longer-than-usual experimentation process. I can usually distill the essence of a film pretty quickly, but Inside Out proved a bit more challenging. I recall watching the film for the first time and enjoying all of the metaphor that was at play between the way the emotions behaved and Riley’s actions. I wanted a little bit of that metaphor to come into play in this poster,” Whalen explained to us. Whalen added: “Overall, this was a project that asked me to dig a bit deeper in order to produce an end result that’s worthy of an incredible film.” What we love the most about this, done in Whalen’s gorgeous, warm graphic style, is how much of the film it actually includes in a single poster: there are the memories, the personality islands, Riley’s old life and new life, all of the emotions. About the only thing missing is Bing Bong (although you can see him in one of the orbs, if you look hard enough) …

… Speaking of Bing Bong, the second print is from Dave Perillo, who brings Riley and Bing Bong’s song to life. Featuring all of the lyrics from the ear worm-y ode to everyone’s favorite imaginary friend, plus stylized renditions of young Riley and Bing Bong, the seven-color print is 10” x 20” and has a hand-numbered run of 250.

Perillo had this to say about his serigraph:

“After seeing Inside Out, Bing Bong was my favorite part of the movie. I found it so interesting exploring what becomes of a child’s imaginary friend as she would get older. I wanted to approach this piece in the style and tone of a children’s book, something that you might see in a vintage Golden Book. The biggest challenge was translating a three-dimensional animated character to work as a flat two dimensional imagery.” Well, Perillo clearly triumphed over that challenge.

Harrison Ford will be unveiling some of the plans for upcoming Star Wars attractions at Disneyland and Walt Disney World in a TV special set to air February 21, 2016

The Wonderful World of Disney special, which will be broadcast on Disney-owned ABC, will celebrate the 60-year legacy of the Disneyland theme park with participants including Elton John, Josh Gad, and Witney Carson.

Fans who attended Disney’s D23 fan expo last August got a sneak preview of the 14-acre Star Wars additions planned for the parks in Anaheim, California and Orlando, Florida.

The unnamed Star Wars world will be inhabited by humanoids, aliens, and droids, and “is one of the last ports before wild space,” according to Disney chairman and CEO Robert Iger.

“Every store and restaurant will be operated by local inhabitants, making each experience deeply immersive. Nothing in the land will be out of character or stray from mythology. By the way, we’re currently casting for roles, so if you live on the Outer Rim there maybe a job for you,” he joked.

Among the attractions will be a cantina, like the one seen in 1977’s original Star Wars, with familiar creatures from various parts of the series. It will also include a ride that allows guests to take the controls of Han Solo’s starship freighter the Millennium Falcon as it swoops into the center of an aerial battle between the First Order and the Resistance – the new film’s version of the Empire and the Rebellion.

Disney Sets New Dates For Star Wars: Episode VIII & Pirates of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

sddefault

This morning, The Walt Disney Studios announced new release dates for upcoming films from two of its major franchises.

Star Wars: Episode VIII, originally scheduled for release on May 26, 2017, will now debut on December 15, 2017. The move follows the extraordinary success of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which was the first Star Wars movie to premiere in December. In the popular holiday moviegoing corridor, it smashed numerous records, including biggest domestic and global debuts of all time as well as the biggest domestic second and third weekends, en route to becoming the highest grossing domestic release of all time with over $861M and the third biggest global release ever with $1.887B.

Written and directed by Rian Johnson, Star Wars: Episode VIII is currently in pre-production and will begin principal photography in London next month. Kathleen Kennedy and Ram Bergman will produce and J.J. Abrams, Tom Karnowski, and Jason McGatlin will executive produce. Stay tuned to StarWars.com for exciting updates in the coming weeks.

With Star Wars: Episode VIII jumping to December, Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales will set sail on May 26, 2017, from its previously scheduled July 7, 2017, berth. The blockbuster franchise’s previous installment, the $1B-grossing Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, also debuted in late May.

In Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, Johnny Depp returns as Captain Jack Sparrow with Geoffrey Rush back on board as Barbossa, Orlando Bloom resurfacing as Will Turner, and a terrifying new adversary, Captain Salazar, played by Javier Bardem, in the mix. Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and directed by Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg, the film is currently in post-production.

New Trailer For Disney’s Zootopia

1

Happy Zoo Year! The new trailer for Zootopia featuring Shakira’s new single “Try Everything, is here!

The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it’s a melting pot where animals from every environment live together—a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything. But when rookie Officer Judy Hopps (voice of Ginnifer Goodwin) arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn’t so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde (voice of Jason Bateman), to solve the mystery. Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Zootopia,” a comedy-adventure directed by Byron Howard and Rich Moore and co-directed by Jared Bush, opens in theaters on March 4, 2016.

Inside Walt Disney’s Immaculately Reconstructed Office

Earlier this week, Walt Disney Company Chairman and CEO Bob Iger, along with Walt Disney’s granddaughters Joanna Miller, Jennifer Goff, and Michelle Lund, composer Richard Sherman, actress Kathryn Beaumont (voice of Alice in Alice in Wonderland) and former head of Walt Disney Imagineering Marty Sklar, dedicated Walt Disney’s newly restored office suite. The suite is located on the Walt Disney Studios lot in Burbank, in the original Animation Building, and lovingly pieced together just like Walt left it.

Iger said that the space was “restored down to the tiniest detail,” in what he described as “a painstaking process.” The office is now exactly the way Walt left it back in 1966. This “permanent exhibit,” Iger said, “serves as a source of inspiration for us, a reminder to us to have great ambition, to take bold creative risks, to constantly innovate and push the limits of possibility, to relentlessly pursue perfection and to tell fantastic stories that touch people’s hearts. That was Walt Disney.” And that is inspirational.

Check out the photos of the room, which includes the Sherman Brothers’ original piano (on which they played “Feed the Birds” from Mary Poppins for Walt every Friday afternoon) and a bar that is hidden behind a secret wall.
