After a couple of teaser trailers, we’ve finally received our first theatrical trailer for Pixar’s upcoming film, Toy Story 4!
While I’m hopeful for the film and like some of the new characters such as the apparently villainous Gabby Gabby (voiced by Christina Hendricks) and her army of pleasingly creepy ventriloquist dummies, I’m not super excited about other characters like Forky or Bo Peep’s “stronger” personality. I’m also a bit letdown that this film seems to just be a rehash of Woody’s realizations of what it means to be a toy and loyalty/disloyalty to one’s human that he came to in Toy Story 2 and Toy Story 3.
What do you all think of this trailer? Will you see this in theaters when it comes out on June 21, 2019? Let me know in the comments below!
Well, the hostless 91st Academy Awards have come and went! My score this year was 14/24 which isn’t one of my better scores (Black Panther sure surprised me with the awards it won!). But, there’s always next year!
In terms of animation, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse won Best Animated Feature and Bao won Best Animated Short.

Once again, it’s Oscars season! Listed below are my predictions for the winners of this year’s 91st Academy Awards ceremony! Like usual, I leave the top 6 awards for the end (Best Animated Feature, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Actor, Best Actress, and Best Picture). The nominees that I think SHOULD win will be in red, the nominees that I think WILL win will be in blue, and if they’re the same, they will be both red and blue. Enjoy and let me know what you think in the comments below!

We finally get our first teaser trailer for Disney’s upcoming animated sequel, Frozen II! What do you think of this trailer?
I personally am loving what I’m seeing! The overall look of the film is quite distinct and I’m loving the stunning animation! I mean, those waves and cliffs look so real! I also liked the bit of the song that we heard near the end!
The characters seem to be going on a journey, but I wonder what the journey will be. Any ideas?
I still don’t want them to give Elsa a girlfriend in this film; I’d rather her remain single.
Frozen II will hit theaters in the U.S. on November 22, 2019!
It’s that time of year again: the time we take a look at what next year has to offer us in terms of theatrical animation! Bear in mind that these are only the animated films with verified US release dates and that any and all dates are subject to change at any time. (And for the purposes of this blog, I am not including Disney’s upcoming The Lion King remake in this list!) Enjoy!

Are you excited for this film? I personally am! It’s always interesting to see a new original idea from Pixar and I’m pleased with the voice cast.
The big, sad news currently in the Disney world is that DisneyToon Studios has been shut down! For those unfamiliar with it, DisneyToon Studios was Disney’s second animation studio which produced a few theatrical films (such as A Goofy Movie, The Tigger Movie, Return to Never Land, The Jungle Book 2, the Planes films, etc.), but was more famous for producing direct-to-video films (such as the Aladdin sequels, the Beauty and the Beast sequels, the Cinderella sequels, the The Hunchback of Notre Dame sequel, the Mulan sequel, the Tinker Bell films, etc.)
Producing a good 47 films, the studio was even working on a Planes spin-off film, but due to the shutdown, said film is no longer in development. For more on the shutdown, read this: https://www.indiewire.com/2018/06/disneytoon-studios-shuts-down-disney-glendale-1201979736/.
What is your favorite DisneyToon Studios film? Mine is probably The Lion King II: Simba’s Pride.
