The trailers for Disney Pixar’s Finding Dory have been really good so far; they evoke the feelings of the 2003 original while providing some nice steps forward. This new trailer, though, uses some iconic music and new footage to really tug on those heartstrings, a lot more than the others.
If Netflix wasn’t already the most essential streaming service before, it probably will be soon. (Well, essential for those of us too lazy and/or strapped for cash to go buy our own copies.)
There’s precious little in the first actual footage from Disney’s live-action version of Beauty and the Beast, but there’s a glimpse of Emma Watson as Belle and some mightily familiar sets and music.
Disney’s cancellation of its lucrative toy-centric Disney Infinity series is even more shocking given the tantalizing plans for the series that two sources close to the project have shared with Kotaku.
The easiest way to make a robot as dexterous and capable as a human being is to simply let a human control it. That’s how Disney Research’s new telepresence robot works, but with improved hydraulics on board, it’s now capable of duplicating a human’s motions with remarkable precision—to the point where it can even be…
When I was a kid I loved Disney Dollars. For those unfamiliar, they’re Disney’s paper notes that look like real money and feature cartoon characters such as Mickey Mouse and Dumbo on the front. They’re only good at Disney Parks and stores, making them essentially like gift certificates. But Disney will stop printing…
For a brief shining moment, both the X-Men franchise (owned by Fox) and the Marvel’s cinematic universe (owned by Disney) had Quicksilvers in their movies. But, tragically, there ended up being only room for one of them.
Disney is putting an end to their Disney Infinity toy-game line and discontinuing their “self-published console games business,” the company said today. After June, Infinity will stop getting new updates.
Going to a Disney theme park is all about being transported to the world of your favorite movies. From classic animation to a galaxy far, far away, it’s what Disney does best and at their newest park, Disney is taking attendees to the Grid. And you check it out right now.
They’ve escaped the Kyln, defended Xander and controlled an Infinity Stone. Next up for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, they may be taking over one of Disney’s most recognizable theme park rides, The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror.
With every passing day, we get closer and closer to Disney and Lucasfilm finally announcing that they’ve found the actor who will play young Han Solo. Right now, all signs point to the relative newcomer Alden Ehrenreich.
Hey, Hollywood. Did you learn nothing from Warner Bros. box-office bomb Pan? The answer is clear, because now we’ve got news of yet another Peter Pan adaptation. This time, it’ll be a live-action entry from Disney, the studio that made the iconic animated version of J.M. Barrie’s tale, back in 1953.
I guess Disney’s pretty happy with the The Jungle Book, which comes out this week, because they’re already working on a sequel.
Making a live-action remake of a beloved animated classic—a remake that nobody asked for—is a tough position to be in. You have to win over fans of the original, but also convert a whole new audience. For Jungle Book director Jon Favreau, the key to that challenge was capturing the right feeling.
We’re still two years away from Avengers: Infinity War Part 1, but we’re slowly but surely figuring out which characters from the massive Marvel cinematic universe are going to show up. And we now know that Star-Lord is one of them. Probably.
For almost 10 years, Finding Nemo was Pixar’s most successful film. And yet, other movies kept getting sequels while our favorite fish story didn’t. At last, in 2010, writer/director Andrew Stanton got inspired. Five years later, on June 17, Finding Dory is coming to theaters.

If there’s one thing animators love, its sneaking visual references into movies, and Disney’s geniuses are some of the best at it.
Go home, Disney. You’re drunk.
