‘Zootopia’ Teaser Debuts!
I’m super excited!!!! The teaser trailer for the upcoming 2016 animated Disney film, Zootopia, has been released!
What do you all think of it? I’m just so excited to finally see something about this movie. I’m more excited about this than I am about Moana! I’ve always enjoyed anthropomorphic animals and this film is supposed to be a bit of a mystery/whodunnity/crime case sort of a film, which is something I also love! So far, Jason Bateman and Ginnifer Goodwin are the only announced voice actors.
Pixar-Forgotten/Minor Characters #11: The Janitor
In 2010, we got the third chapter in what would become an awesome trilogy along the lines of the original Star Wars, Back to the Future, The Lord of the Rings, etc. Toy Story 3 was a massive success both critically and commercially. It was the first animated movie to gross over $1 billion in the worldwide box office.

Teaser Trailer For ‘The Good Dinosaur’ Released!
We FINALLY have our first trailer (albeit, a teaser) for The Good Dinosaur, the Pixar film that asks, “What would have happened if the asteroid didn’t destroy the dinosaurs?”.
Ok, I am SOOOOO EXCITED about this movie now! I wasn’t all that interested before, but now that I’ve seen a trailer, I can’t wait for November 25th! I love the realistic animation from the asteroids to the dinosaurs (the silhouettes in the beginning)! I love how there seems to be an adventurous/dramatic element to the film rather than just comedic!
What do you all think of the trailer? Excited for the film?
