Disney Finally Announces The Incredibles 2 Is Coming

In: Donovan, Movies

It’s news fans have been waiting for since 2004. Disney executives announced the long-awaited sequel for The Incredibles during the company’s shareholders meeting in Portland, Oregon. Other than that, very few details were released. Last summer, director Brad Bird talked about the potential sequel.

“People think that I have not been [thinking about 'The Incredibles 2'], but I have. Because I love those characters and love that world. I am stroking my chin and scratching my head. I have many, many elements that I think would work really well in another film, and if I can get ‘em to click all together, I would probably wanna do that.”

To tide moviegoers until that time, the studio announced plans to re-release the original Incredibles animated film in 3D, much like how they reformatted Pixar’s Toy Story, Toy Story 2, Monsters, Inc. and Finding Nemo. Ratatouille is also getting a 3D makeover.

Even in its tenth week of release, Frozen is still raking in the big dough at the box office. Domestically, it’s approaching $350 million and it just crossed the $800 million mark internationally. At its current pace, it stands a good chance of topping Universal’s Despicable Me 2‘s worldwide total of $965 million.

Not only is the Disney flick dominating cineplexes, it’s doing gangbusters with its accompanying soundtrack. It topped the Billboard Top 200 for two weeks and both Demi Lovato and Idina Menzel’s versions of “Let It Go” have become Billboard Top 40 hits. Menzel’s version though is the top-selling cut from the album with over 600,000 downloads.

Naturally, with the song being such a fan-favorite around the world, Disney created a multi-language sequence that features Queen Elsa (Menzel) belting out the tune in 25 different languages. Check it out below.

You know you’ve made it when Mickey Mouse calls you up to take part in the Disney Dream Portrait Series. Jessica Chastain is the latest Hollywood star to be immortalized as a beloved character for the Disney Parks advertising campaign. Once again, famed photographer Annie Leibovitz helmed the shoot.

With her luscious red locks, it’s only fitting that the Zero Dark Thirty star channel Merida from Brave. “I definitely see her as a modern princess. She’s headstrong, she’s funny, she has great passions,” Chastain said. ”She’s a good role model for little girls.” Chastain’s photo includes the caption “Where your destiny awaits.” Check out photos from previous years below and see how Jessica’s portrait stacks up.

If a professional hockey player can become a world-caliber figure skater in a matter of months, why can’t cricket players from India play in Major League Baseball. After all, it is the movies. However, the latter is actually a true story and the basis for Disney’s upcoming film, Million Dollar Arm, starring Jon Hamm as sports agent J.B. Berstein.

Berstein is inspired to stage a reality sports competition in India in an attempt to discover cricket players who might have major-league worthy fastballs. Through the contest, Bernstein enlists Rinku Singh (Suraj Sharma) and Dinesh Patel (Madhur Mittal) and brings them to the United States to train with baseball coach Tom House (Bill Paxton), with the intent of ultimately having the cricketers become contracted by a Major League Baseball team. During their stay, Singh and Patel adapt to an American lifestyle while under the care of Bernstein, who is simultaneously shaping his own personal life. Eventually Singh and Patel both get signed by the Pittsburgh Pirates. In other words, the perfect live action rags-to-riches Disney tale.

Lake Bell and Alan Arkin also co-star in the film. Directed by Craig Gillespie, Million Dollar Arm hits theaters May 16, 2014. Check out the trailer below. I have to admit, I got sucked in and looking forward to checking it out.

Forget her Oscar for Dreamgirls or her Grammy for her debut album. All that doesn’t matter. Jennifer Hudson has officially arrived now that she’s forever immortalized as a Disney character for Disney Parks.

Obviously, I’m exaggerating, but posing for Annie Leibovitz for Disney’s Dream Portrait Series is a big thing. The 31-year-old entertainer joins the elite ranks by channeling Princess Tiana from The Princess and The Frog. Her picture features the caption, “Where you always follow your heart.” Check out previous portraits below and see how Hudson ranks among them.

Prior to her stint on Dancing With The Stars, I had no clue who the eff Zendaya was. Most likely due to the fact I’m not a tween with a subscription to the Disney Channel. But since she was paired up with my favorite DWTS pro, Val Chmerkovskiy, I thought I’d give her a chance. Unlike her Disney buddies on the reality competition, I actually quite liked her and she quickly waltzed into my heart with her kickass performances. After hearing her debut single, I’m officially a fan or as they like to call themselves… a zswagger.

Zendaya is the latest Disney pop princess torchbearer. Unlike her predecessors, her first single is much grittier and urban than I would’ve expected. While I love Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez now, their first tracks were way too bubblegum pop for my liking.

As the lyrics state, “Replay” is so good, I have to put it on replay. Produced by Mick Shuultz and written by Tiffany Fred and Paul “Phamous” Shelton, “Replay” is a slick pop jam with an infectious electro-R&B beat and supremely catchy chorus. I can’t wait to see what else Zendaya has in store for us on her debut album. Can’t wait for the music video to drop. This hot track deserves an epic clip. Check it out below.

Mariah Carey Shuts Down Disneyland

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Donovan

Must be nice to have so much disposable income. Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon celebrated their fifth wedding anniversary by renewing their vows in front of Cinderella’s Castle at Disneyland. The 43-year-old singer and American Idol judge wore a white princess-like wedding gown with a sparkly headpiece, while Cannon was clad in Prince Charming’s finest. Personally, I don’t get the whole fascination with having a princess wedding theme, but to each their own.

About 250 guests mingled on the chilly night in Fantasyland for the reception, which Cannon deejayed. I wonder if Nicki Minaj was invited ;) The park was reportedly closed to the public so guests could take advantage of the rides and attractions. The park was decorated with 10,000 crystals for the occasion, along with about 15,000 flowers imported from South Africa, Holland and France.

In 2008, Carey and Cannon married in the Bahamas. Each subsequent year, they renew their vows in some sort of elaborate manner. Last year, they did it atop the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Hopefully, the duo live happily ever after, unlike another high-profile celebrity couple who renewed their vows on a yearly basis. We all know what happened with Heidi Klum and Seal. In addition to celebrating their love, it was also the couple’s twin’s- Monroe and Moroccan- second birthday. Check out Mariah Carey’s Vine below to check out their special night.

This post may seem a little random, but since I babysit my niece on Wednesdays, I thought it was appropriate to publish today. Plus, I have a close friend who loves to deliver quotes from the animated film in Merida’s voice. Yes, he’s a little odd ;)

Watch out Snow White, there’s a new Real Housewife princess in town. Disney announced the heroine from Brave will become the 11th Disney princess. Merida is the first character to receive the honor from a Disney/Pixar production and the second from a CGI-animated film. Her addition to the princess line-up will become official in a coronation ceremony at Cinderella’s Castle in the Orlando theme park on May 11. Who knew the whole ordeal was so regal?

Even though Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs hit theaters eons ago, the official Disney princess initiative didn’t begin until the early 2000s. Then-chairman Andy Mooney saw the lucrative potential of packaging the animated ladies as a brand. He certainly was correct. My niece is obsessed with all things Disney princess-y.

Before Merida joins Snow White, Cinderella, Aurora, Ariel, Belle, Jasmine, Pocahontas, Mulan, Tiana and Rapunzel, she has to undergo a mild make-under. She’ll be un-3D-ified To fall in line with the rest of the ladies. Check out her new look below, along with the coronation of Rapunzel who was the most recent addition.
