Donald reunites with his old Three Caballeros compadres in a wildly fun and visually impressive DuckTales

A-

If you’re in the know, you’d be aware that there is already a new show called The Three Caballeros that’s airing overseas right now. And if you’re really in the know, you’d be aware of the illicit locations on the web of where to find episodes of said show. And if you’re really, really in the know, you would have…

Disney's streaming service is getting a Rogue One prequel with Diego Luna

Star Wars: Rogue One is probably the most underrated entry in Disney’s run on the Star Wars series so far, but one of its obvious faults was that it didn’t really have enough room to develop its squad of doomed characters on top of telling the story of their suicide mission to expose the Death Star’s one design flaw.…

The weathered backstory of Flintheart Glomgold makes for an unexpectedly ominous DuckTales

A-

One of the issues with making a character like Flintheart Glomgold the consistent butt of so many jokes is that it makes it difficult to properly develop him, and to make audiences suddenly invest any interest in that development. It takes a whole lot of work to re-jigger a broad narrative to make the ostensible comic…

The Nutcracker And The Four Realms is another flavorless remake from the Disney magic machine

C+

Let’s get this out of the way: The Nutcracker And The Four Realms is probably going to be nominated for at least one Oscar. And costume designer Jenny Beavan and production designer Guy Hendrix Dyas will richly deserve the nods their fanciful Rococo creations will more than likely earn them a couple of months from…

Guardians fans have raised thousands to put up a "Rehire James Gunn" billboard near Disneyland

James Gunn might have begun moving on from his unceremonious, troll-guided firing from Marvel’s ludicrously popular Guardians Of The Galaxy franchise, but that doesn’t mean his fans have. The Wrap reports that a new billboard has just gone up near Disneyland in California, informing Marvel Studios’ corporate…

Cap's sidekicks might be getting their own TV series to buddy around in

We’ve known for a while now that Disney—which is clearly not fucking around when it comes to dreaming up ways to get people to ditch Netflix in favor of its long-planned streaming service—would be tapping into its roster of Marvel Cinematic Universe talent in order to lure folks in. The entertainment mega-giant has…

DuckTales tries to plumb the depths of adventure with a new character, but mostly takes up water

B-

I’m certainly not opposed to a Dewey/Huey driven episode. Dewey’s adventure-driven, adrenaline-rush-loving energy contrasts nicely with Huey’s more low-key, detail-oriented, book-smart weirdness. Both love that sense of adventure, of discovery–they just come at it in different mindsets. The title “The Depths of…

Disney is looking into rebooting that ancient cinematic classic, Pirates Of The Caribbean

Well, it happened: Disney’s insatiable hunger for live-action remakes of its classic properties has now reached the point where it’s eating its own rattily dreadlocked tail, as Deadline reports that the studio is looking into a live-action reboot of a property that was already filmed by actual flesh and blood people,…

Original Aladdin screenwriter highlights some of the shadier aspects of Disney's live-action remake craze

For most of us, the release of the recent teaser for Disney’s live-action, Guy Ritchie-directed Aladdin was little more than a digital comma, a 90-second lacuna in which our brains neutrally registered the thought, “Oh, yep, that’s Aladdin,” and then moved on. But for at least one of the people partially responsible…

Here's an interesting theory on how to bring the X-Men and Fantastic Four into the MCU

Since the announcement of the merger between Disney and 21st Century Fox, people have wondered how, exactly, all of these disparate comic book characters would finally be brought together. For years, Marvel superheroes like the X-Men and the Fantastic Four have been sequestered to separate franchises, timelines, and…

Female-driven Marvel superhero series in the works at ABC from Wonder Woman screenwriter

This week, it was reported that Disney is developing TV shows spun off from Marvel Cinematic Universe characters like Loki and the Scarlet Witch for its upcoming, direct-to-consumer streaming service. This was seen by some as a death knell for ABC’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D., which was renewed for a sixth, 13-episode…
