We’ve finally gotten a full-length trailer for the upcoming animated Illumination Entertainment film, Sing.
I’ve always been optimistic about this film and am still liking what I’m seeing. Yes, it probably won’t be an Inside Out, but I think it’s interesting enough to hold its own and is definitely a lot more intriguing than something like The Secret Life of Pets is.
Are you looking forward to this film? Let me know in the comments below!

The sad news today is that actor Alan Young has passed away at the age of 96! Alan Young (1919-2016) was an actor in films and TV shows with many knowing him from his role on the sitcom, Mr. Ed.
But, Disney fans knew him best as the voice of the stingy Scottish Scrooge McDuck in various films/TV shows from the 1980s to the present.
He also was the voice of Mr. Flaversham in The Great Mouse Detective.
Mr. Young, you shall be missed!

In news that I’m quite excited about, actor Benedict Cumberbatch has been cast to voice the character of the Grinch in Illumination Entertainment’s upcoming animated adaptation of How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Set to be released on November 17, 2017, hopefully this will be the first film adaptation of a work by Dr. Seuss to actually be good! You can find more here.

When we first got the news that Blue Sky Studios was going to tackle a theatrical film adaptation of Charles Schulz’s Peanuts, we were quite frightened and protective indeed! When we heard it was going to be a CG film, that didn’t help matters much either! Finally, after months of waiting, the movie was released and generally, people liked it! It was critically acclaimed and got overall positive reviews! But, what do I think of it? Read on to find out.
