Enchanted Sequel Picking Up Steam

In: Donovan, Movies

Amy Adams charmed movie goers in Enchanted as Princess Giselle trying to survive in modern-day Manhattan. Fans have been craving a sequel ever since. Eight years later, it appears the sequel might actually becoming to fruition.

A sequel was first planned in 2010 but nothing has been announced since. Finally some significant news has emerged. Collider reveals the sequel has been renamed from Enchanted 2 to Disenchanted. The news outlet also reports Disney “is now in the process of punching up the script with the hopes that it will be in greenlight-ready shape very soon.”

The film’s original director Anne Fletcher will reportedly return to the director’s chair. No word on whether Amy Adams, James Marsden, Patrick Dempsey, Idina Menzel or Susan Sarandon will reprise their roles. Hopefully, at least Adams does. You can’t have an Enchanted sequel without her. Relive below some of Amy’s memorable musical numbers from the film

Ariana Grande is just one of the artists featured on the forthcoming compilation album, We Love Disney. The likes of Jason Derulo, Jessie J, Tori Kelly, Jessie Ware and Ne-Yo to name a few cover classic tunes from the Mickey vault.

The 22-year-old pint-sized singer chose “Zero To Hero” from the animated film Hercules. To put it bluntly, her efforts are Herculean. Ariana absolutely slays her version with her mighty vocals, culminating to sickeningly flawless high notes. Check out her version below.

This isn’t your parent’s The Jungle Book. Jon Favreau’s adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s collection of stories is decidedly darker, swooping and more primal than the 1967 animated Walt Disney classic. Though the live action CGI adaption is going for a more realistic approach, the teaser hints at the inclusion of the fan-favorite song “Bare Necessities.”

Newcomer Neel Sethi plays Mowgli, the boy raised by jungle animals. A star-studded roster lend their voices for the animals characters. Bill Murray will voice the friendly bear Baloo, Ben Kingsley the panther Bagheera, Idris Elba the villainous tiger Shere Khan, Scarlett Johansson the python Kaa, Christopher Walken the ape King Louis, and Giancarlo Esposito and Lupita Nyong’o as the wolves Akela and Raksha.

A rival project over at Warner Bros titled Jungle Book: Origins features Andy Serkis directing Benedict Cumberbatch as Shere Khan, Christian Bale as Bagheera, Cate Blanchett as Kaa, and Naomie Harris as Raksha.

Disney’s latest version arrives on April 15, 2016, while the Warner Bros film doesn’t arrive until a year later on October 6, 2017. Check out Disney’s trailer below.

New Mary Poppins Musical In The Works

In: Donovan, Movies

The great Walt Disney reboot revolution continues, but this time it’s not an animated favorite that’s getting the treatment. Rather, it’s a beloved musical.

The studio is reportedly developing a new Mary Poppins musical. Instead of remaking the classic, Entertainment Weekly insiders reveal the new “film will take place in Depression-era London, some 20 years after Disney’s classic Mary Poppins, and will draw from existing Poppins tales in the rest of author P.L. Travers’ 1934-1988 children’s book series.”

Rob Marshall, who’s adapted Broadway musicals like Chicago and Into The Woods for the big screen, has been tapped to produce the project along with John DeLuca and Marc Platt.

Would you watch a new Mary Poppins musical? Who do you think should play the part famously portrayed by Julie Andrews in the 1964 classic? Weigh in below.


Who wouldn’t jump at a chance to sing for Disney? I’m sure the Mickey Mouse studio had no problems gathering this star-studded lineup for this upcoming compilation album.

Produced by David Foster, We Love Disney features plenty of big names to sing Disney classics ranging from The Jungle Book to Aladdin and even Frozen. Ariana Grande, Jessie J, Jason Derulo, Gwen Stefani appear alongside rising stars Tori Kelly, Jessie Ware and Jhene Aiko for this fun project.

The lead single finds Ne-Yo channeling his inner Robin Williams to belt out “Friend Like Me” from Aladdin. However, the track I’m most looking forward to is Tori Kelly’s take on “Colors of the Wind” from Pocahontas originally sung by Vanessa Williams. Love Kelly, Williams and that movie. It better not be a hot mess ;) Give Ne-Yo’s track a listen below, and check out the album’s official track list as well.

Disney Developing Live-Action Aladdin Prequel

In: Donovan, Movies

At least this time, it isn’t a flat out live-action copy of an existing animated classic. There’s actually a bit of originality involved this time around.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Disney is developing a live-action prequel to the 1992 Arabian animated hit, Aladdin. Tentatively titled Genies, the new adventure will explore the world of genies and give a backstory to the character voiced by Robin Williams in the original. Exactly how he became trapped in the magic lamp.

Damian Shannon and Mark Swift have been given the task to write the screenplay. Reportedly, this project will eventually lead up to live-action adaptation of Aladdin. No shock there.

This news comes on the string of numerous previously announced live-action remakes of Beauty and the Beast, Mulan, Winnie The Pooh and Pinocchio. Not to mention the already released Maleficent and Cinderella.

What are your thoughts on a prequel? Excited that at least it’ll be somewhat of an original concept? Weigh in below.
