Jay Baruchel is (you know the young guy who starred in Tropic Thunder). Jay and Nicholas Cage are starring in the new live-action Disney movie called “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” coming out sometime in 2009 (which has nothing to do with Fantasia, like at all. Now that I think about it, a live-action Fantasy movie could be really fun though, as long as it had some CG for the Centaurs and Pegasuses and stuff 😀 ). Nicholas Cage is the new Sorcerer, who for some reason lives in New York and is looking for his latest apprentice (duh). I find it strange to think of Nicholas Cage as a super cool sorcerer guy like the one in Fantasia and I’m wondering if they’re going to make him look old or keep him like he is. He doesn’t look very sorcery at all and he’s the last guy I’d pick to be one. I also think it’s kind of weird to team Nicholas up with Jay Baruchel seeing as they’re both pretty goofy. I don’t think I could take either of them seriously especially if they had magical powers. This movie just seems like a screwed up version of Enchanted and I liked Enchanted too 😦 . At least that movie made some sense seeing as how all the magical things started in fantasy land. There’s not too many details of this movie currently available other than what I’ve already said, especially considering it’s supposed to come out sometime in 2009. I think it was just announced that Jay Baruchel is the co-star too, so I’m guessing it won’t actually be out until at least 2010.
Disney is making an adventure movie set in space. Everyone is thinking it’s going to be a Tomorrowland/Space Mountain movie or a rip-off of Star Wars. Oh yeah and it’s starring The Rock. Now, Disney is of course denying any rumors that it’s based off of Space Mountain or any part of their park. But come on, what else could it be? They’ve already ripped off of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride (which was good because they actually got talented actors) and the Haunted Mansion ride (which was one of the stupidest movies I’ve seen). I’ve also heard rumors that Meet the Robinsons was supposed to be their version of Tomorrowland and that it was a good movie (seeing as how I still haven’t seen it I wouldn’t know….sad really). So maybe it will be “creative” but I’ll only say that if turns out to be good.
Personally I hope they don’t try and rip-off a whole section of their park into a movie because then when little kids run to Disney to see Tomorrowland, they’re going to be really confused. Both Pirates and the Haunted Mansion weren’t really like their ride counterparts and I’m sure some obnoxious little kids kept waiting for Jack Sparrow to pop up even though he never would. Personally, I was happy when I rode both the Haunted Mansion and Pirates rides and found out that neither of them had changed even after the movies were released. I was shocked that Disney didn’t try to mutate the original rides into something new (and if they try to do that to Space Mountain somebody is getting hurt). Disney had better realize that Pirates was only good because of the story, script, and actors they chose to play the parts (not just because people were nastalgic because that obviously didn’t help them with the horrendous Haunted Mansion movie). So hopefully they are telling the truth and they don’t just try to make some sappy space movie based off of their park with The Rock as some little kid’s “funny” dad that ends up saving the day. After all, they did make Wall-E really good with hardly any speaking roles, so they could do it again right?
So despite the huge rumors going on around the internet, it’s been reported that Miley Cyrus hasn’t died due to a car crash or any other reason. Apparently someone who can’t spell started the rumor too so the people that spread it are pretty dumb. I think it started on Wikipedia too, which just goes to show you how much people would believe if you put it up there. Anyway Ms. Ihaveabadwig is still alive so all the little girls who cried about it can relax now. I was all excited to not have to hear any more
bad rip offs of other people’s music Hannah Montana songs or see any of the gross wigs in stores 😦 . Guess they’re gonna be sticking around. Also since I can’t stand to put another picture of Hannah Montana on my blog, like ever again so here’s an amazing picture of Gir.
So there’s a bunch of new Pixar movies coming out in the next 3 years including a new Toy Story movie. First the 2 prior Toy Stories are gonna come out in 3-D and then the new Toy Story 3 will be out June 18th, 2010. The 3-D movies are coming out October 2nd, 2009 and February 12th, 2010. Toy Story 3 is supposed to be when Andy is going off to college. It used to be about a toy recall on Buzz Lightyears but that script got shelved when Circle 7 was shutdown after Pixar was put in charge of all Disney Animation. Also Pixar has a Cars 2 coming out which is ok but I didn’t enjoy the first one that much.
In terms of new movies there’s one called Up coming out May 29th 2009. It’s supposed to be about an old man who used to explore the world but is now too old. He meets an 8-year old boy that loves to explore and you can imagine the plot from there :).
In summer 2011 there’s another new movie coming out called Newt. It’s about the 2 last blue-footed newts on the planet. They’re forced together to try and save the species but they really hate each other. Should be pretty funny when it comes out.
Finally, Pixar is coming out with a fairytale. That should make for an amazing movie. It’s called the Bear and the Bow and it’s about a girl that’s part of a royal family that would rather be an archer instead. Her mother disagrees with this decision whole-heartedly, shocker :). This puts the whole kingdom into great peril. I’m really excited to see this and I can’t believe Pixar hasn’t done a fairytale before considering all the cool stuff they could do in CG. Btw it’s coming out Christmas 2011.
Disney also has a movie coming out Christmas 2010 which I believe is also being made by Pixar. It’s Rapunzel and the character looks really cute :).
