There are a lot of movies coming out this year we can’t wait to see, but Disney has one of the most envious lineups. Not only is “Avengers: Infinity War” one of the most-anticipated movies of the year, but the Mouse House is also delivering two more Marvel movies and a sequel to “The Incredibles” 14 years later.
It’s been another big year for the Disney media empire. Between releasing numerous blockbuster movies and purchasing 20th Century Fox’s entertainment holdings, the Mouse House scored a lot of victories over the last 12 months, following up on its impressive performance last year.
Disney’s current box office champ Coco scored a leading 10 nominations and Gkids’ The Breadwinner had eight to lead the field at the 45th annual Annie Awards. Winners in 36 categories will be revealed in a ceremony February 3 at UCLA’s Royce Hall.
Until Disney launches its own streaming service near the end of 2019, a selection of animated and live-action films will continue to have a home on Netflix.
The University of Hawaii’s Academy for Creative Media System (ACMS) is spearheading a project to produce a Hawaiian-language version of “Moana,” where star Auli’i Cravalho will return as Disney’s first Polynesian princess.
Beyonce confirmed the role on her Facebook account in a post that contained the rest of the voice cast, which also revealed that Keegan-Michael Key will be playing a hyena named Kamari.
The Little Mermaid and Moana are both Disney animated films that focus on young women and the ocean. But the films, separated by almost three decades, otherwise don’t have that much in common.
Netflix junkies (and probably Netflix itself) were rocked by the news that Disney is terminating its business with the streaming service. The Mouse House is taking off all of their movies and TV shows from Netflix and will be creating its own streaming platform which will be the exclusive home to its massive library of content.
Disney’s announcement that it will pull all of its films from Netflix by 2018 is a bigger blow to the streaming giant than you might expect.
