Disney Channel Releases New Descendants 2 Teaser Trailer

descendants2poster

Disney Channel has debuted the new Descendants 2 teaser trailer.

The story deepens in the music-driven sequel to the global smash hit Descendants as the teenage sons and daughters of Disney’s most infamous villains — Mal, Evie, Carlos and Jay (also known as Villain Kids or VKs) — try to find their place in idyllic Auradon. When the pressure to be royally perfect becomes too much for Mal, she returns to her rotten roots on the Isle of the Lost where her archenemy Uma, the daughter of Ursula, has taken her spot as self-proclaimed queen of the run-down town. Uma, still resentful over not being selected by Ben to go to Auradon Prep with the other Villain Kids, stirs her pirate gang including Captain Hook’s son Harry and Gaston’s son Gil, to break the barrier between the Isle of the Lost and Auradon, and unleash all the villains imprisoned on the Isle, once and for all.

Emmy Award-winning director Kenny Ortega (Descendants, “High School Musical” movies, 2016’s “The Rocky Horror Picture Show”) returns as director, executive producer and choreographer of Descendants 2.

Dove Cameron (“Liv and Maddie”), Cameron Boyce (“Gamer’s Guide to Pretty Much Everything,” “Jessie”), Booboo Stewart (X-Men Days of Future Past), Sofia Carson (“Adventures in Babysitting”) and Mitchell Hope are reprising their starring roles as Mal, Carlos, Jay, Evie and King Ben, respectively. China Anne McClain (“A.N.T. Farm”) will join the cast as Uma, the daughter of Ursula from The Little Mermaid. Casting will be announced soon for additional new characters, including the progeny of villains Captain Hook and Gaston.

Lauded writers Sara Parriott and Josann McGibbon (“The Starter Wife,” “Runaway Bride”), who won a 2016 Writers Guild Award for Descendants, wrote Descendants 2 and will also executive-produce with Wendy Japhet (Descendants, An Education, The Italian Job). “Descendants” costume designer Kara Saun (“Project Runway”) and production designer Mark Hofeling (“Teen Beach Movie,” “High School Musical”) are also signed on for the sequel. Tony Testa (“The Rocky Horror Picture Show,” “This Is It”) will join the creative team as choreographer with Ortega, and Shawn Williamson (“Adventures in Babysitting”) will join as producer.

Descendants 2 will premiere this summer.

Walt Disney Animation Studios Moana Arrives On Digital HD February 21 & Blu-ray March 7

moana3d

Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Moana, the sweeping story of a spirited teenager who sets sail on a daring adventure to save her people, starring newcomer Auli‘i Cravalho as the voice of brave and tenacious Moana and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (HBO’s “Ballers,” “Central Intelligence”) as the larger-than-life demigod Maui, has dazzled both critics and audiences. The film earned a 95% critics’ consensus on Rotten Tomatoes and the No. 1 spot at the domestic box office opening weekend. Now, “Moana” sets a new course, arriving to homes on Digital HD/3D and Disney Movies Anywhere (DMA) on Feb. 21, and on Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, DVD and On-Demand on March 7.

Continuing the fun-filled adventure, families can continue their journey filled with hours of extensive and entertaining bonus offerings including: a new, hilarious mini-movie featuring Moana and Maui; an in-depth look at how the people, cultures and heritage of the Pacific Islands shaped the story of “Moana;” revealing Q&A with co-stars Auli‘i Cravalho and Dwayne Johnson, and famed animation directors Ron Clements and John Musker; insider access to Lin-Manuel Miranda, Mark Mancina and Opetaia Foaʻi, the trio behind the film’s moving music; four mini-documentaries highlighting the movie’s groundbreaking effects; deleted scenes; a deleted song; hidden Easter Eggs; music video; “Inner Workings,” the theatrical short film directed by Leo Matsuda that spotlights the internal struggle between a man’s Brain and Heart; and much, much more.

Moana stars Auli‘i Cravalho as the voice of Moana, Dwayne Johnson as the voice of Maui, Temuera Morrison (“Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones,” “Once Were Warriors,” “Six Days, Seven Nights”) as Moana’s no-nonsense father, Chief Tui; Rachel House (“Whale Rider,” “Hunt for Wilderpeople,” “Eagle vs Shark,” “Boy,” “White Lies”) as Moana’s trusted Gramma Tala; and Nicole Scherzinger (Grammy®-nominated singer, West End’s “Cats”) as Moana’s playful and strong-willed mother, Sina; Jemaine Clement (“The BFG,” “Despicable Me,” “Rio,” “Rio 2,” “What We Do in the Shadows,” Flight of the Conchords) voices Tamatoa, a self-absorbed, 50-foot crab; and Alan Tudyk (“Zootopia,” “Wreck-It Ralph,” “Big Hero 6”) lends his voice to stowaway rooster Heihei.

According to directors Ron Clements and John Musker, the story of “Moana” was inspired by the great explorers who masterfully navigated the vast Pacific, discovering the many islands of Oceania. “Voyaging is a real source of pride for many Pacific Islanders, a part of their identity,” says Clements. Many experts believe that about 3,000 years ago, those deep-sea exploratory voyages halted for about a millennium before resuming. This rebirth of exploration sparked the filmmakers’ imaginations, and the heroine at the heart of the story. “The idea of a teenage girl who dreamed of becoming a navigator—considering the abilities of her ancestors—was so appealing,” explains Musker. Moana’s quest to become a wayfinder also serves as a journey of self-discovery, empowering her to find her own identity – a beautiful and powerful message for audiences of all ages and genders.

Watch An Extended Look At Cars 3

15250929_10157801767570183_8343168913596278771_o

A brand new extended look at Cars 3 just aired during the CFP National Championship Game and you can watch it below.

Blindsided by a new generation of blazing-fast racers, the legendary Lightning McQueen (voice of Owen Wilson) is suddenly pushed out of the sport he loves. To get back in the game, he will need the help of an eager young race technician, Cruz Ramirez (voice of Cristela Alonzo), with her own plan to win, plus inspiration from the late Fabulous Hudson Hornet and a few unexpected turns. Proving that #95 isn’t through yet will test the heart of a champion on Piston Cup Racing’s biggest stage!

Cars 3 will be in U.S. theaters on June 16, 2017!

Mojira By Ralph Cosentino

Available today from Raph Cosentino, a new print based on a series of paintings he did for a show in Japan curated by Mark Nagata back in 2010-2011 where the artist mashed up Disney characters with Japanese monsters; Mickey Mouse + Gojira ( Gojira is the Japanese pronunciation of Godzilla ) = Mojira.

With this print Cosentino wanted to create a parody of the classic “pie-eyed Mickey” stock cartoon posters from the thirties.

The print will be available HERE.

Duck The Halls: A Mickey Mouse Christmas Special Coming To The Disney Channel

As Donald Duck’s flock of family and friends migrate south for a warmer climate holiday, he stays put to finally experience his first Christmas winter wonderland with the most enthusiastic Christmas reveler ever, Mickey Mouse, and Minnie, Pluto and Goofy.  Although Donald is out of his element in the freezing cold, he wants to do it all – so his pal Mickey creates the ultimate list of everything that will make Donald’s first Christmas great, in a delightfully funny Mickey Mouse cartoon, “Duck the Halls: A Mickey Mouse Christmas Special,” premiering Friday December 9 (8:30-9:00 p.m. EST), on Disney Channel, the Disney Channel app and Disney Channel VOD. It will also be televised Monday, December 12 (8:00-8:30 p.m. EST), on DisneyXD.

Part of the Emmy Award- and Annie Award-winning “Mickey Mouse” cartoons, the holiday special includes appearances by Uncle Scrooge McDuck, nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie, Professor Ludwig Von Drake, Gus Goose and Santa Claus, among others. It also features a flashback to Mickey’s childhood when he dashed through a Dickensian town pulled on a sleigh by Pluto (as a puppy), greeting townsfolk in a British accent.

Original songs in the special include the jazzy and warm “Joy, O It’s Christmas Time” performed by Mickey wearing a retro sweater vest and hat, and a show-stopping spectacular performed by Mickey and Donald (and featuring Minnie and Goofy), “Jing-a-Ling-a-Ling.”

Emmy Award winner Paul Rudish is the executive producer and supervising director; Todd Popp is the line producer; Alonso Ramirez Ramos and Dave Wasson are the directors. The music is by Christopher Willis. Jenny Gase-Baker and Joseph Holt are the art directors and Illya Owens is the editor. The story was written by Darrick Bachman.
