‘Early Man’ Trailer Debuts!

2 Comments

The first theatrical trailer for Aardman Animations’ upcoming film, Early Man, has debuted.

Early Man takes place during the “dawn of time” wherein a tribe of cavemen goes up against a Bronze Age City leader to save their home. The film features the voice talents of Eddie Redmayne, Maisie Williams, Tom Hiddleston, Timothy Spall, Richard Ayoade, and Johnny Vegas, amongst others. The film is set to hit American theaters on February 16, 2018.

While the trailer doesn’t have me super excited for the film, I still am interested in seeing it as it is an Aardman Animations film. Are you all interested in it?

DreamWorks Animation-Forgotten/Minor Characters #6: Murphy

Leave a comment

Continuing on through the DreamWorks Animation films, we come upon Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron. Released in 2002, this traditionally-animated film tells the story of a mustang named Spirit who has multiple experiences with the human race. The film was beloved by many people although I personally am not a fan of it. But we’re here today to talk about the forgotten/minor character for this film, so let’s get on with it.

‘The Magic School Bus Rides Again’ Trailer Debuts!

2 Comments

The trailer for the upcoming Netflix reboot, The Magic School Bus Rides Again, has debuted.

The original The Magic School Bus was a classic animated TV show of the 1990s (and my personal favorite animated TV show that I grew up with) and this reboot seems to be following in the same vein. Yes, the animation looks off-putting and some people are upset that the original character of Ms. Frizzle now has a younger sister voiced by Kate McKinnon who will now take over as the lead, but that honestly doesn’t bother me at all. I can’t wait for this show and hopefully, it proves to be a satisfactory reboot.

Also, Lin-Manuel Miranda sings the title song! Is that cool or what? Look out for the show on September 29 on Netflix.

My Thoughts: THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE (2017)

13 Comments

In 2014, The Lego Movie was released to theaters. Most of us scoffed at the idea that they were making a movie about LEGOs, but the movie proved us wrong by having a thought-provoking story, memorable characters, impeccable animation, and just being one of the best animated films of the decade (according to most people)!

The breakout character from the movie though was Lego Batman, voiced by Will Arnett. Lego Batman was somewhat of an exaggerated parody of the Batman character that fit in well with the LEGO universe. Due to his popularity, it was soon decided that Lego Batman would get his own spinoff film. And three years later, we’ve got The Lego Batman Movie! Is it as good as The Lego Movie? Or is it another example of a side character being given his/her own movie which turns out to be incredibly bad? Read on to find out! (Also, there might be spoilers ahead, so you’ve been warned!)

Voice Actress June Foray Dies at 99!

2 Comments

In incredibly saddening news, the legendary voice actress, June Foray, has died at the age of 99! Ms. Foray (1917-2017) was pretty much the woman of “a thousand voices” being a big name in the business since the 1950s. Some of her more famous roles have been Lucifer in Cinderella, Squaw in Peter Pan, Granny and Witch Hazel in the Looney Tunes shorts, Rocky J. Squirrel in the The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show, Mrs. Featherby in DuckTales, and Grandmother Fa in Mulan. It’s basically impossible to not have heard her voice at all in your life!

She was instrumental in creating the Annie Awards as well as in getting a Best Animated Feature category in the Academy Awards! What makes this even sadder was that she was two months shy of her 100th birthday 😦 . She shall be missed!

For more about her life and legacy, please read this article as well as this tribute.
