Like for serious you guys if Wreck-It Ralph turns out to be terrible despite all of its awesome allusions to gaming culture and actual (actual!) vidyagame characters, then I lose all faith in humanity and nerdom and will never get excited about anything ever again.
In a surprise to very few, Disney is apparently hard at work on a sequel to 2012's phenomenal Wreck-It Ralph.
In an interview with Collider, Wreck-It Ralph composer Henry Jackson said, "I can’t tell you more, not becaus...more
This week's biggest release by far is Wreck-It-Ralph, Disney's CG animated offering chockablock with retro gaming references. (Wreck-It-Ralph was also the title of my unproduced sequel to King Ralph.) Also new and notable thi...more
I have never really cared too much about animation. I like animated films for the most part, but I rarely seek them out. I don't actually know why that is, and it's very possible that that will change in 2013. Why? Because 20...more
With Wreck-It Ralph's home video release only a few more weeks away, IGN grabbed this deleted scene from the film featured on the Blu-ray. In the scene, Ralph finds himself in a prison, and Felix is a guard...somehow. I can ...more
So, you've finally landed a date with that cutie you've had a crush on for a while, but he/she just wants to hang out and have a chill night-in? All your fears start rushing into your mind - what do you watch together, do you...more
In recent years, a lot of animated movies have been formulaic and underwhelming, but 2012 brought us the variety and quality that has been missing in the genre for a while. Sure, Disney brought back Beauty and the Beast, Find...more
Almost immediately, there's a weird dissonance in Wreck-it Ralph, Disney's love-letter to the 80s/90s age of arcades. From frame one, where the film begins at the arcade that is home to all the characters and games we're abou...more
Fair warning before you watch the international trailer for Wreck-It Ralph, one of our most anticipated films of the upcoming months. If you wanted to go in blind (and not know any of the plot details), then you shouldn't wa...more
While I may only like a small selection of Studio Ghibli's films, there's no mistaking their quality. Based on the Japanese tale "The Tale of Bamboo Cutter" and directed by Isao Takahata (Grave of the Fireflies), Princess Kag...more
Although you may not know Glen Keane, chances are you recognize his work. He designed characters from famous Disney Animated films like The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, and Beauty and the Beast. Although traditional 2D anim...more
When I posted the teaser trailer for Disney/Marvel's Big Hero 6 some time ago, I loved how cute the whole thing was. Yet, this first full trailer rings kind of hollow. As it completely relies on that cuteness, more cracks ar...more
Based on Joan G. Robinson's novel of the same name, When Marnie is There is about a lonely little girl who befriends a ghost. I've never read the book myself, but if it's being adapted by Studio Ghibli, I'm sure it's equal p...more
Presenting: Butter Ya'Self, a stop-motion animation of food rapping about food. You're welcome.
Butter Ya'Self was created by a bunch of people at CalArts, but specifically by Julian Petschek. The characters are all voiced b...more
Felix the Cat is a bit of an oddball. Not just character-wise within the various incarnations of his television shows and movies, but also his iconic status. I feel like most people can recognize the character, even if they h...more
"Is it possible that it happened yesterday? He disappeared right before my eyes and everything remains just as different? Why do they multiply and divide? Only the dogs take this as a natural fact. Please don't go into the ...more
To celebrate the FIFA World Cup kicking off in Brazil, Disney has crafted a new Mickey Mouse short entirely in Portuguese, O Futebol Classico. It's short, sweet, and funny. You don't even need to know Portuguese to like it!
It looks like we'll all need an umbrella ella ella pretty soon as Rihanna is once again expanding her career into movies. In Dreamworks' next animated film, Rihanna stars as a little girl named Tip who finds a lost alien, Oh...more
Dreamworks' How to Train Your Dragon was refreshing. Setting new standards for book adaptations and animated films, Dragon somehow was everything you look for in an entertaining kid's movie. It had a tight hero's journey stor...more
We've had a few short teasers for Laika's upcoming adaptation of the Alan Snow novel, Here Be Monsters, here and there but now we have a full trailer dishing out those all important story bits (a group of bad guys want ...more
Poulette's Chair, directed by Hiroyasu Ishida with character designs from Ghibli animator Yojiro Arai (From Up On Poppy Hill, The Secret World of Arietty) is a short and sweet animated short about a little girl and her living magical chair. There's not much to say as the film itself is less than five minutes, but the kinetic movement is absolutely splendid. Give it a watch, yeah?
If you had told me in 2005 that Dreamworks was launching a massive franchise with its admittedly entertaining Madagascar I would have pointed you towards the door marked "Wrong." Clearly I should have been leadin...more
