Finding Dory Trailer


The first trailer for Disney Pixar‘s long-awaited sequel Finding Dory is now online!

Finding Dory picks up six months after the first movie, with Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) living a quiet life among the clown fishes. After going with Nemo on a class trip to see manta rays migrate back home, her home sickness leads the forgetful Dory on a quest to find where she came from.

“The movie will be mostly set at the California Marine Biology Institute, a huge complex of sea life rehabilitation and aquarium, where Dory was born and raised,” Pixar President Jim Morris stated previously. “We will get to meet new characters, like an octopus, sea lions, a beluga whale, among others.”

Finding Dory features returning favorites Marlin, Nemo and the Tank Gang, among others. Set in part along the California coastline, the story also welcomes a host of new characters, including a few who will prove to be a very important part of Dory’s life, such as her parents voiced by Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy.

Findng Nemo helmer Andrew Stanton (John Carter) returns to the directors chair for the animated film, which features the voices of Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Ed O’Neill, Kaitlin Olson, Ty Burrell, Eugene Levy and Diane Keaton. Walt Disney Pictures will release the film on June 17, 2016.

Walt Disney Animation Studios Introduces The Voice Cast For Zootopia

zootopia poster

Walt Disney Animation Studios revealed the roster of voice talent tapped to help bring a voice, snort and a roar to the animal residents of the modern-day mammal metropolis of “Zootopia,” which opens in theaters March 4, 2016. “We had so much fun casting this film,” said director Byron Howard. “‘Zootopia’ features such a large and diverse range of characters—one of our biggest casts ever for a Disney Animation film. We needed talented actors who could help bring these animals to life.”

Adds director Rich Moore, “Everyone in this incredible cast is bringing something special, something unexpected to their characters, which really takes our story to a whole new level.”



Joining Ginnifer Goodwin, who provides the voice of Zootopia’s first bunny officer Judy Hopps; Jason Bateman, who lends his voice to con-artist fox Nick Wilde; and Shakira, who voices international superstar Gazelle, are the following members of the “Zootopia” voice cast.


Idris Elba (Netflix’s “Beasts of No Nation,” BBC’s “Luther”) provides the voice of Chief Bogo, head of the Zootopia Police Department. A tough cape buffalo with 2,000 lbs of attitude, Bogo is reluctant to add Judy Hopps, Zootopia’s first bunny cop, to his squad of hardened rhinos, elephants and hippos.


J.K. Simmons (“Juno,” Oscar winner for “Whiplash”) lends his voice to Mayor Leodore Lionheart, the noble leader of Zootopia, who coined the city’s mantra that Judy Hopps lives by: “In Zootopia, anyone can be anything.”


Nate Torrence (HBO’s “Hello Ladies,” Fox’s “Weird Loners”) lends his voice to the Zootopia Police Department’s most charming cheetah, Benjamin Clawhauser. Clawhauser loves two things: pop star Gazelle and donuts. From his reception desk, he greets everyone with a warm smile and a helpful paw—covered in sprinkles.


Jenny Slate (“Obvious Child,” “Marcel the Shell”) provides the voice of Assistant Mayor Bellwether, a sweet sheep with a little voice and a lot of wool, who constantly  finds herself under foot of the larger-than-life Mayor Lionheart.


Tommy Chong (“Up in Smoke,” “That ’70s Show”) lends his iconic voice to Yax The Yak, the most enlightened, laid-back bovine in Zootopia. When Judy Hopps is on a case, Yax is full of revealing insights.


Octavia Spencer (“Insurgent,” Oscar winner for “The Help”) voices Mrs. Otterton, a desperate otter who turns to Officer Judy Hopps for help in solving her husband’s mysterious disappearance.


Bonnie Hunt (“Return to Me,” “Jerry Maguire”) provides the voice of Bonnie Hopps, mother of Judy—and her 275 brothers and sisters. Mrs. Hopps loves and supports her daughter, but is a hare nervous about Judy moving to Zootopia to become a big-city police officer.

Don Lake (“Dumb and Dumber To,” “The Bonnie Hunt Show”) voices Judy’s father, Stu Hopps, a carrot farmer from Bunnyburrow. Along with Mrs. Hopps, he is worried about Judy moving to Zootopia and the untrustworthy big-city mammals who live there—especially foxes.


Alan Tudyk (“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” “Trumbo”) returns to Disney Animation’s recording studio for his fourth feature in a row as the voice of Duke Weaselton, a small-time weasel crook with a big-time weasel mouth, who tries to give Judy the slip during a police chase.


Tommy “Tiny” Lister (“Friday,” “The Fifth Element”) voices Finnick, a fennec fox with a big chip on his adorable shoulder.


Raymond Persi (“Wreck-It Ralph,” WDAS story artist) voices Flash, the fastest sloth working at the DMV—the Department of Mammal Vehicles.

Katie Lowes (ABC’s “Scandal,” “Big Hero 6”) lends her voice to Dr. Madge Honey Badger, who heads up all of City Hall’s most pressing medical cases.

Jesse Corti (“Frozen,” “Beauty and the Beast”) is the voice of the jaguar Manchas, a highly regarded chauffeur who works for the biggest—and shadiest—limo company in town.

John DiMaggio (Fox’s “Futurama,” Cartoon Network’s “Adventure Time”) voices Jerry Jumbeaux Jr., the easily annoyed owner of Jumbeaux’s Café, his elephant ice cream parlor.

Mark continues his series of Disney art prints depicting one of the classic, musical moments of the film.  We see Aladdin looking up at the Genie as he towers above him after coming out of the lamp for the first time. This piece is a wonderful complement to his show stopping serigraph from this year’s D23 Expo, “She Really Is A Funny Girl,” which will be available online for the first time!

Watch The First Clip To The Pixar Short Sanjay’s Super Team


Here is the first clip from the Disney Pixar short film Sanjay’s Super Team

Directed by Sanjay Patel, the heartfelt animated short will open in theaters on November 25, 2015, in front of The Good Dinosaur.


2DB479F5-8E43-47EF-8172-F2C264DB74E8 96EDDAEE-371B-4CC7-A79A-9164EE2866E7-1

Sanjay’s Super Team is inspired by Patel’s own childhood, as he was often embarrassed by his father’s devotion to the Hindu religion. The short centers on young superhero fan Sanjay, who is trying — and failing — to watch his favorite Saturday morning cartoon, as he’s constantly interrupted and annoyed by his father’s morning prayer.

14-Year-Old Native Hawaiian Newcomer Auli’i Cravalho Cast As The Voice of Disney’s Moana


Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Moana” has found her voice following a worldwide search to cast the film’s title character. Native Hawaiian newcomer Auli’i Cravalho, 14, joins Dwayne Johnson in the big-screen adventure about a spirited and fearless teenager named Moana (voice of Cravalho) who, with help from demi-god Maui (voice of Johnson), sets out on a daring mission to prove herself a master wayfinder.

While hundreds of talented people from across the Pacific Islands were eager to try out for the role, Cravalho set her sights firmly on her sophomore year of high school. “I didn’t think I would have a chance,” she said. “When I was little, I used to dance around the house singing at the top of my lungs. In my mind, that was performing and I loved the feeling of it. But I never imagined being in a Disney movie, being Moana—representing my culture in that way.”


Fortunately, the film’s Hawai’i casting director remembered an unrelated audition Cravalho did as part of an a cappella group, which had been submitted for a talent showcase for a charity. Feeling the local teen would be perfect for the Disney role, she tracked her and her mother down and invited Cravalho to audition. “Her audition was fantastic – she was such a raw talent,” said producer Osnat Shurer. “Auli’i was among a small number of girls we brought back for a second round of auditions. Then we flew her and her mom over to audition at our studios in Burbank.”

“Auli’i demonstrated a certain fearlessness in her auditions and call-backs,” said director John Musker. “She has a playful, mischievous wit. She can project vulnerability, she doesn’t seem intimidated at all by the challenges ahead, and her Polynesian background has helped shape her connection to family, hard work and music. These are all qualities she shares with Moana.”

“Moana is a vibrant, tenacious 16-year-old growing up on an island where voyaging is forbidden,” added director Ron Clements. “But Moana has been drawn to the ocean since she can remember and is desperate to find out what’s beyond the confines of her island.”

Cravalho has already started recording for the role. Moana sails into U.S. theaters on November 23, 2016.

Watch The New Trailer For Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur


A new trailer for Disney•Pixar‘s The Good Dinosaur has been released. Directed by Peter Sohn and produced by Denise Ream, the film opens in theaters on November 25.

The Good Dinosaur asks the question: What if the asteroid that forever changed life on Earth missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct? Pixar Animation Studios takes you on an epic journey into the world of dinosaurs where an Apatosaurus named Arlo (voice of Raymond Ochoa; “The Night Shift,” “Rizzoli & Isles”) makes an unlikely human friend. While traveling through a harsh and mysterious landscape, Arlo learns the power of confronting his fears and discovers what he is truly capable of.




The film’s voice cast will also include Jeffrey Wright (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay), Steve Zahn (“Treme,” Saving Silverman), AJ Buckley (“Murder in the First,” “Justified”), Anna Paquin (“True Blood,” “X-Men”), Sam Elliot (“Justified,” The Big Lebowski). Frances McDormand (“Olive Kitteridge,” Fargo), Marcus Scribner (“black•ish”), and Jack Bright (Monsters University).

Peter Sohn made his directorial debut with the Pixar short film Partly Cloudy. He has worked in the art, story and animation departments, and also has voiced the characters of Emile from Academy Award- winning Ratatouille and Scott “Squishy” Squibbles from Monsters University.

Denise Ream produced the Golden Globe-nominated film Cars 2 for Pixar Animation Studios, and served as associate producer for Disney•Pixar’s Academy Award-winning film Up. She also has an extensive background in producing visual effects and animation for live action films.
