Disney Commemorates Stan Lee’s 75 Years at Marvel

1

The Chairman of The Walt Disney Company, Bob Iger, recently presented Stan “The Man” Lee with a one-of-a-kind bronze statue to commemorate the legendary comic book writer’s 75-year career at Marvel.

The bronze features Spider-Man, one of Lee’s most famous co-creations (in collaboration with Steve Ditko), alongside Mickey Mouse, a nod to Marvel’s acquisition by Disney in 2009.

Since Disney’s purchase of Marvel, the two entities have found plenty of shared box-office success with record-setting films like “The Avengers,” “Iron Man 3” and “Captain America: Civil War.” Many of the characters in these Marvel Studios’ films were co-created by Lee, including Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk and Doctor Strange.

Stan Lee has worked in the comics industry since he was a teenager, where he got his start as an assistant at Timely Comics in 1939. He is primarily known for his foundational work at Marvel, alongside artists Jacky Kirby and Steve Ditko. With these collaborators, he had a hand in creating the X-Men, Fantastic Four and other staples of Marvel’s IP stable. For his achievements, he received a National Medal of Arts in 2008, and was inducted into both the Will Eisner Award Hall of Fame in 1994 and the Jack Kirby Hall of Fame in 1995.

Walt Disney Pictures has debuted the new Beauty and the Beast movie trailer.

Disney’s new Beauty and the Beast movie is a live-action re-telling of the studio’s animated classic which refashions the classic characters from the tale as old as time for a contemporary audience, staying true to the original music while updating the score with several new songs. Beauty and the Beast is the fantastic journey of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a beast in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the Beast’s hideous exterior and realize the kind heart and soul of the true Prince within.

Beauty and the Beast stars Emma Watson as Belle; Dan Stevens as the Beast; Luke Evans as Gaston, the handsome, but shallow villager who woos Belle; Oscar winner Kevin Kline as Maurice, Belle’s eccentric, but lovable father; Josh Gad as Lefou, Gaston’s long-suffering aide-de-camp; Golden Globe nominee Ewan McGregor as Lumiere, the candelabra; Oscar nominee Stanley Tucci as Maestro Cadenza, the harpsichord; Oscar nominee Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, the mantel clock; and two-time Academy Award winner Emma Thompson as the teapot, Mrs. Potts.

Directed by Oscar winner Bill Condon based on the 1991 animated film, Beauty and the Beast is produced by Mandeville Films’ David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman with eight-time Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken, who won two Academy Awards (Best Original Score and Best Song) for the 1991 animated film, providing the score, which will include new recordings of the original songs written by Menken and Howard Ashman, as well as several new songs written by Menken and three-time Oscar winner Tim Rice.

See the film in theatres March 17, 2017!

Walt Disney Pictures revealed the first Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales trailer!

Directed by Norwegian filmmakers Espen Sandberg and Joachim Rønning (Kon-Tiki), Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales will feature the return of Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow, Orlando Bloom as Will Turner and Geoffrey Rush as Captain Barbosa.

Jon Favreau To Direct Live-Action Lion King Movie

1

After a surprising tweet from the director earlier this morning, Walt Disney Studios has confirmed that director Jon Favreau is putting a new reimagining of The Lion King on the fast track to production. The Lion King movie follows the technologically-groundbreaking smash hit The Jungle Book, directed by Favreau, which debuted in April and has earned $965.8 million worldwide.

The Lion King builds on Disney’s success of reimagining its classics for a contemporary audience with films like Maleficent, Cinderella, and The Jungle Book. The upcoming Beauty and the Beast, starring Emma Watson as Belle, is already one of the most anticipated movies of 2017. Like Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King will include songs from the animated film. Disney and Favreau are also in development on a sequel to The Jungle Book. No release date has been announced for either film.

The Lion King (1994) is one of the biggest animated films of all time with a lifetime global box office gross of $968.8 million, including $422.8 million domestically. It won Academy Awards for the original song “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” (Elton John, Tim Rice) and original score (Hans Zimmer), plus two Grammy Awards, with the soundtrack selling over 14 million copies. In 1997, the stage production “The Lion King” made its Broadway debut, winning six Tony Awards; 19 years later, it remains one of Broadway’s biggest hits alongside several other productions running around the world, including London, Hamburg, Tokyo, Madrid, Mexico City, Shanghai, and North America. Translated into eight different languages, its 23 global productions have been seen by more than 85 million people across every continent except Antarctica.
