Watch the fantastic "You're Welcome" from Disney's Moana

If you didn't get to catch Disney's newest dynamo Moana over the Thanksgiving holiday, Disney has helpfully (and awesomely) given a little preview. Although I didn't get to gush about it as much as I wanted to in our review, Dwayne Johnson'...

Review: Moana

Disney Animation has had one critical success after another since they're in the middle of a new creative renaissance. Fully embracing CG animation, Disney has produced hits like Tangled, Wreck-It Ralph, Zootopia, and most importantly, Froz...

Check out this fantastic new trailer for Disney's Moana

With as good of a roll Disney has been on lately, I've seen many people joke along the lines of "I will push children out of the way to see this" and for the first time, I completely agree. While this newest trailer gives away a bit more Mo...

Here's the first trailer for Disney's Moana

Disney's animation studio has been on a Pixar like roll lately with Frozen, Big Hero 6, and Zootopia netting huge critical and financial success. Their newest princess film Moana already blows those films out of the water.  This teaser...

Disney casts its next princess, Moana

I've been pretty excited for Disney's Moana since it was announced. After hearing their next project was about a Polynesian princess, and after Frozen, Big Hero 6, Wreck-It Ralph and Tangled turned out pretty good, they've earned both my at...

 
 
Cinderella Trailer photo

International trailer for Cinderella works them shoes

I'm caught in a pickle, folks. While I want Disney's live action version of Cinderella to be different from its animated counterpart (so it has a reason to exist other than money), I don't like the changes. Thus the latest trailer for the ...

 
 
Cinderella Trailer photo

First full trailer for Disney's live action Cinderella

Cinderelly, Cinderelly, look what they've done to you, Cinderelly. But seriously, this is the one live action adaptation I don't understand. It's going to make oodles of money sure, those glass slippers look damn good (but them heels gurl)...

Disney's Moana gets synopsis and new release date

When we'd last heard about Disney's next animated (possibly princess) film, Moana, it was working in the same style as their gorgeous Paperman short and was debuting in 2018. Looks like production has sped up over the last few months a...

Enchanted 2 is still happening because money

Wait..."still"? Yes, a sequel to the 2007 Disney Princess film Enchanted has been in the works for some time now, but it hasn't progressed passed the "it should happen" stage. But now that Frozen was a mega hit for Disney, they've taken con...

Disney's Beauty and the Beast getting live action treatment

The tale as old as time is getting retold once again as Disney's massive success with Maleficent (and presumed success with its future live action Cinderella film) has geared them toward an adaptation of one of the more famous Disney animat...

 
 
Maleficent Review photo

Review: Maleficent

I've been anticipating Maleficent for a long time. As a big Disney fan, I don't usually like when Disney decides to make a live action version of one of their properties (101 Dalmations is worse than you remember, trust me), but casting Ang...

 
 
Cinderella teaser photo

First teaser and poster for Disney's live action Cinderella

This first teaser for Kenneth Branagh's live action take on Disney's Cinderella gives really good shoe. The film isn't hitting theaters until 2015, so don't expect major details, but I'm sure it'll involve a stepmother, a handsome prince, ...

Maleficent gets some dreamy looking character posters

I didn't bring this up in our big Summer Preview (because I've said this many times before), but I'm really looking forward to Disney's Maleficent. It's just oozing with style. I mean, get a load of these character posters for the film. The...

 
 
Maleficent photo

These Maleficent images are just so pretty

I honestly can't express how excited I am for Maleficent. I'm a huge fan of the Disney Princess films (I'm a Princess at heart, you know), and a fan of Angelina Jolie, so Maleficent is like a peanut butter meets chocolate situation for me. ...

 
 
 
 
Maleficent Trailer 3 photo

Newest Maleficent trailer is the dreamiest one yet

The third trailer for Maleficent has to be the best one yet, or at the very least, the most interesting. It has different footage from the other two (or is at least cut in such a way that I didn't notice), Angelina Jolie is still delicious...

Frozen's "Let It Go" sung in 25 different languages

No, I'm not sick at all of talking about how much I loved Disney's Frozen (put it on all three of my Top X of 2013 lists this year), so of course I'm using this time to gush again. Here we have a video of Idina Menzel's "Let It Go" (the Os...

Angelina Jolie is horny in second Maleficent trailer

Because of Frozen, I've come to expect more out of Disney's princess films in a desperate hope that they can keep the momentum going. Their first immediate attempt is Maleficent, the live action spin-off prequel thing starring Angelina Jol...

 
 
Frozen  photo

Frozen's best scene is now available online

At this rate, Frozen is shaping up to be my favorite movie of 2013. If the above clip of Elsa (Idina Menzel) singing the film's stand out single, "Let It Go," doesn't convince you, then I've failed as a person. Although I said in the revie...

Frozen had Disney Animation's biggest box office opening

Ever since I walked out of Frozen (while giving it my highest review score ever) I've been on a constant Frozen hype train much to the dismay of my fellow Flixist editors. The film is the best thing Disney has put out in ages and I'm happy ...

 
 
Frozen Review photo

Review: Frozen

I had no idea Disney's Frozen would deliver as much as it did. With Disney's latest Princess films (The Princess in the Frog and Tangled) doing well in some areas but fudging others, I did not expect a whole lot given that the bru...

First trailer for Disney's Maleficent is invited to party

Maleficent's one of Disney's most evil and cool looking villains. In Sleeping Beauty, she curses a baby because she wasn't invited to a party. And when it didn't go well, she turned into a cool looking dragon for no reason other than being...

First poster for Maleficent is sufficient

On a scale of 1 to "Not Wearing Pants" I am currently at "Partially Disrobed" over my excitement for the upcoming Maleficent from Disney. We've had a peak at what Angelina Jolie is going to look like as the evil queen of Sleeping Beaut...

First full trailer for Disney's Frozen isn't cold as ice

The first full length trailer for Disney's Frozen does share a bit with the Japanese version of the trailer released a few months back, but there's plenty of new material to chew on. It seems like Frozen is following in Tangled's independe...

Teaser Trailer: Frozen

After the first batch of official images for Disney Animation Studios' Frozen failed to impress because they looked like something that's been done before, does the first official teaser for the film bring back the goodwill? Sort of. There...

First images of Disney's Frozen are eerily familiar

A few months back there were a batch of faked character posters for Disney's Frozen we had to take down. I believed they were fakes because the character designs looked so much like the designs from Tangled, I figured they were photosh...

Jenika's Top 5 Animated Movies of 2012

Princess Review: Brave

While Pixar is known for its emotional depth and memorable characters, it has been sorely lacking in female protagonists. There are certainly a few interesting female characters, but they are always in the shadows of their male counterp...

Review: Brave

There are high expectations for Pixar, and that's because their movies all have something to make them stand out. The stories are appealing to both children and adults, incorporating light-hearted humor at the same time as some very dark th...

Check out these fighting Disney Princesses

Disney princesses are often included together as roommates in toy sets, but they probably wouldn't really do too well together. For one thing, there would likely be some power issues, since all of them are in charge of separate kingdoms and...

Trailer: Snow White and the Huntsman

So, I've made a lot of jokes about how ridiculous it is that there's two Snow White movies coming out this year. I mean, it's pretty silly. However, at least I can say that the two movies are doing a decent job of distinguishing themselves...
