Report: Robert Zemeckis to remake the Beatles animated movie, “Yellow Submarine” with Disney…

Disney and Robert Zemeckis are in negotiations to remake the famous Beatles movie, “Yellow Submarine”. Disney has bene quietly trying to get the rights to Zemeckis so he can have the full 16 original Beatles songs that were in the original film. The plan with the remake is that they want to make it 3D (plus I’m sure it will be CGI animated too). Disney hopes to release this around the time the Summer Olympics happen in 2012 which is on July 27th in London.

Cool Video: New Tron lightcycle revealed at San Diego Comic Con for TR2N sequel!!!

Disney’s “TR2N”, the sequel to the video game film that stars Jeff Bridges is coming soon to the big screen as we all know. At the San Diego comic con at Flynn’s bar as you see in the first movie, they revealed the brand new lightcycle for the sequel of Tron. Yes, you will see this new lightcycle in the next movie, the lightcycle looks so much different than the one in the first movie.

Check out this exciting video. The new lightcycle is looking cool. I’m looking forward to “Tron 2” most definitely, and glad Jeff Bridges is still playing Kevin Flynn in the leading role.

With all the new technology of filmaking of CGI, I can’t blame them for wanting another Tron movie. I fucking LOVE the first “Tron” film, but I’m sure the next “Tron” movie will be a blast to watch.

Check it out.  Man, I wish I could afford another trip to San Diego again ’cause I would love to be part of these Comic Con events live in person. I will be sure to keep this in mind for next year’s San Diego comic con. I wanna experience these events myself.

Pinocchio 70th Anniversary DVD/Blu Ray…

I’m probably going to pick this up this week, next time I go to the Wilton Mall again. I’m not into Disney movies that much, but there are very few that I love, and “Pinocchio” is one of them. I think it’s one of my favorite animated Disney films of all times. It tells a great story.

Some other animated Disney films that I like quite a lot are: “Snow White”, “Fantasia”, “The Sword In the Stone”, “The Fox and the Hound”, “Pocahontas”, “Mulan”, “The Toy Story” series, “Wall-E”, and “Lady and the Tramp”. All the other ones are too overrated for me.

I really think, “Pinocchio”, is the best Disney animated film ever made, that’s just my personal opinion.

Confirmed: Spielberg signs deal with Walt Disney to distribute six films…

It’s official. Steven Spielberg has inked a deal with Walt Disney pictures to distribute six films with his Dreamworks production company. Knowing how most Steven Spielberg films are aimed toward young children and for family, it is no surprise to me that Spielberg will one day make movies with Disney and it finally happened.

Lets see if Spielberg’s next directed film he’s doing with Will Smith very soon, “Old Boy”, will be a Disney movie. It probably will. I’m not sure what other films Steven may release with Disney, he will probably direct or produce more family live action films or he may do animated films too.

Thought: How “Wall-E” is going to get the nomination for BEST PICTURE at the Oscars…

Don’t think “Wall-E” will ever get the nomination for “Best Picture” at the Oscars? John Lassetter who serves as governor of the Academy’s animation branch, says it’s very possible, it could get the nomination.

See why here:

And Wall-E is up there in the top contenders:

Animated films deserve a chance at getting more than just a small “Best Animation Award”, the Academy is looking to change that.

I don’t think Wall-E is Oscar worthy enough to win “Best Picture” but it certainly deserves the nomination for sure.

Thought: “Wall-E” is amazing but not worthy enough for “Best Picture” for the Oscars…

I finally saw, “Wall-E” last night and here is just a brief review. I loved it, I thought it was wonderful, great and entertaining, but I don’t find it worthy enough for a “Best Picture” win at the Oscars. It does deserve the nomination for “Best Picture”, yes, but definitely not winning the whole thing. The reason that “Wall-E” would be qualified to get “BEST PICTURE” nomination is because the film is both live action and animation put together in one film.

I really liked the story to “Wall-E”, it’s a love story where Wall-E falls in love with another female robot named Eve. A science fiction, action adventure story. What I love the most about “Wall-E” is the animation and the CGI graphics of the film. It’s indeed, Pixar’s best film. I liked the film a lot. It is a great film for all to see.

Report: China planning to make Disney’s “Mulan” a live action movie…

The China FIlm Group is partnering with Xinhua Media Entertainment to adapt Disney’s animated film “Mulan” into a live action movie. The companies have already found a director to make “Mulan” a live action film but they will announce who the director will be at AFM.

The animated version of “Mulan” were meant for children and people of all ages, the film makers plan to make a live action more adult oriented. Look like it maybe filmed in China, but the live action “Mulan” could possibly get a world wide release.

Interesting.

I have seen the Disney version of “Mulan” before and it’s actually very good.

I like some Disney animated movies, not a lot but I do like a few.

Like “Snow White”, “Pinocchio”, “Cinderella”, “Bambi”, etc. I mostly like the older Disney animated flicks, the newer ones I don’t really care for.

Report: Hi Ho Silver…The Lone Ranger coming back to the big screen…

Screenwriters Ted Elliot and Terry Rossio who were writers from the “Pirates of the Caribbean” films is in final negotiations with Disney and producer Jerry Bruckheimer in bringing the famous “The Lone Ranger” back to the big screen.

“The Lone Ranger” first began as a radioshow back in the 1930’s, the popularity of “The Ranger” led to movies, TV shows, cartoons, comics, toys, and more.

The character once hit the big screen in 1981 in a movie titled “The Legend of the Lone Ranger” starring Klinton Spilsbury as the Ranger but the movie failed big time in the box office. In 2003, a TV movie of the Lone Ranger was aired but that failed in the TV ratings as well.

The Hollywood Reporter reports:

I’m sure Disney will do a great job so America can care about the character again. It’s Disney, those people don’t mess around.

As long as they don’t get Antonio Banderas as the Lone Ranger in the new film, I’ll go see it.
