It’s a shame Disney/Pixar couldn’t resist the urge to produce another installment. As it stood, the Toy Story trilogy was perfect, with the third installment a perfect and touching end to Andy’s relationship with his toys. But in the end, the almighty dollar won.

Woody, Buzz and crew haven’t exactly been missing in action since their last feature film. The beloved characters have appeared in a series of short films and television specials including a Hawaiian vacation and a Halloween broadcast special for ABC. On June 16, 2017, they head back to the silver screen. John Lasseter who directed the first two films returns for Toy Story 4. In fact, Lasseter hasn’t directed a film since Toy Story 2 in 2011.

Based on looks alone, it appears that Rob Marshall has another hit musical on his hands. As the old adage says though, don’t judge a book by its cover. The 54-year-old director’s 2009 big budget Nine looked fantastic but was a snoozefest and bombed at the box office. Here’s hoping he has a reversal of fortune with Into The Woods.

Bringing the beloved 1987 musical didn’t translate easily to film and the huge creative challenge fell upon Rob’s shoulders. In a recently-released behind the scenes featurette, the cast praises Marshall’s vision and hard work for bringing the hit Stephen Sondheim masterpiece to the big screen.

Check out the entertainingly informative clip below which features snippets of some of the casting singing. Meryl Streep (the Witch) sings her beautiful ballad “Stay with Me” to Rapunzel (MacKenzie Mauzy). Additionally, we hear the opening song “I Wish” sung by Emily Blunt and James Corden (as the Baker’s Wife and Baker), as well as Anna Kendrick (Cinderella), and Daniel Huttlestone (Jack). If that wasn’t enough, Johnny Depp (The Wolf) shows off his howl. Into the Woods hits theaters on Christmas Day!

A teaser is exactly what it is. On the heels of Walt Disney releasing ten new production stills, the studio debuts the first teaser trailer for Into The Woods.

Rumors of Tina Fey developing a Hocus Pocus sequel have been greatly exaggerated. In fact, Hocus Pocus 2 isn’t even currently in the works by anyone for Disney. However, Fey has teamed up with the Mouse House for a bewitching movie of her own.

Deadline.com uncovered that Fey has teamed up with Cinderella producer Allison Shearmur for a supernatural-themed feature film in the vein of Ghostbusters. Tentatively, it’s being referred to as Untitled Witch Project. Fey will not only produce the film but will also star in it. If Sarah Jessica Parker, Bette Midler or Kathy Najimy somehow get involved, expect those Hocus Pocus rumors to resurface once again.

What do you think of this new project from Tina Fey? Witches are certainly hot these days. Tina can certainly give them a hilarious spin. Bummed that Hocus Pocus 2 isn’t in the works? Sound off below.

It’s a tale as old as time and Walt Disney is planning on telling it again.

Variety is reporting that the studio is planning a live action adaptation of their 1991 animated hit. No word if the film will be a musical but with Bill Condon reportedly on board, it would seem that way. Though he’s best known for his work on the last two Twilight films, Condon also worked on the hit musical Dreamgirls starring Jennifer Hudson.
