Review: Muppets Most Wanted

2011's The Muppets was a breath of fresh air since it was a reboot which never really felt like one. There wasn't a grand gesture to reinvent the characters, a notable lack of cynicism, and it was most importantly, fun. It wa...

Pixar short Party Central playing before Muppets

We've got a long wait for new Pixar movies since they've delayed The Good Dinosaur to 2015 (thankfully Disney is picking up the slack), but that doesn't mean we'll be completely devoid of the ol' Pixar magic in 2014. In the g...

First poster for Muppets Most Wanted is too adorable

Muppets Most Wanted (formerly The Muppets...Again!) is one of the few sequels I'm happy they're making. The first Muppets was a hilarious trip down memory lane, and Muppets Most Wanted looks to continue that judging by that f...

Disney unveils its 2014-15 film release slate photo
Disney unveils its 2014-15 film release slate
by Nick Valdez

Just the other day, Disney announced its planned film releases for 2014 and 2015. Notably, there are a few big changes. Maleficent, the Angelina Jolie (and daughter) starring prequel to Sleeping Beauty, is moved from its original March release date to July. The Muppets 2, on the other hand gets a March 21st 2014 release, Brad Bird and Damon Lindelof's mysterious 1952 gets a December release, and Captain America: The Winter Soldier gets an awesomely alliterate April 4th, 2014 release date. 

Strangely missing is The Little Mermaid 3D scheduled for a re-release this September. Surprisingly, it was dropped from the schedule because of how poorly the other re-releases have done so far (Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, Monsters Inc, Finding Nemo). While I'm glad it's not getting re-released for a cash grab, I'm kind of mad it's not getting re-released for a cash grab. I loved watching Lion King and Beauty in the theater, so I'm sad to see it go. They don't even need to "3D" it. Just re-release it as is...maybe with a touch up or so like the Diamond Edition Blu-rays have done so far. The full list of dates (including Guardians of the Galaxy), is after the jump.

Disney has released three new clips from the upcoming Muppets movie. I'm telling you now, they're good. Like, surprisingly good. I really enjoyed the pacing of the clips and I already like the character of Walter. You can check out the clips for yourself below!
