The Wind Rises was a Studio Ghibli film that I’ve wanted to see for a long time, but due to various circumstances, I wasn’t able to see it until last week. I had heard great things about it: It was a Studio Ghibli film inspired by true events rather than something fantastical, it was nominated for Best Animated Feature at the Oscars (with many people thinking it should have won the award instead of Frozen), and it was going to be Hayao Miyazaki’s last film ever as he was retiring!

‘Cars 3’ Teaser Trailer Debuts!

The first teaser trailer for Pixar’s upcoming Cars 3 has debuted:

What can I say except…Wow?! Everyone’s talking about how dark and gritty Pixar is getting with this franchise. I mean, seeing an injured near-retirement Lightning McQueen try to get back in the race does sound interesting! The film is set to be released in June 2017, so I wonder when a voice cast will be announced?

What did you think of the teaser? Are you excited for the film?

My 4th Blogoversary!

4thanniversary

Well, well, well…it’s been 4 years already! My, how time flies!

I started this blog as an outlet to share my love of animation with fellow animation lovers and it’s gone on to become one of the most important things in my life! In the past 4 years, I’ve done a Forgotten/Minor Characters project for the Disney Canon and Pixar films, made a few Top 13 lists, shared animation news with my readers, and hosted my own animation version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire!

In the past 4 years, I’ve come across many wonderful animation-loving friends and I’m truly grateful to all of you, be you fellow bloggers or readers! Let me know in the comments below what you think of my blog!

Happy 4th Blogoversary to me!
