The 2004 animated Pixar film, The Incredibles, was a film that people seemed to love immensely! Many clamored for a sequel since day one! I, on the other hand, never loved The Incredibles that much. Yes, I do like it and think it’s a good film, but it was never one of my favorite Pixar films nor one that I was dying to see a sequel to.
Nevertheless, Pixar released a sequel, Incredibles 2 (notice the “The” is dropped), in 2018. Directed by Brad Bird, the film received overly positive reviews and made over a billion dollars at the worldwide box office! But, what did I think? Did I like this better than the first film? Read on for my review, but be warned of mild spoilers ahead!
The actor, John Mahoney, has passed away at the age of 77. Mr. Mahoney (1940-2018) was known for his role on the sitcom, Frasier, as well as for appearing in numerous films including Moonstruck, Eight Men Out, Barton Fink, and Flipped.
In terms of animation, Mr. Mahoney lent his voice to many animated features including Antz,
Once again, it’s time to take a look at what next year has to offer us in terms of theatrical animation! Many of us felt that 2017 wasn’t a great year for animation (at least, not for mainstream animation), so we’re hoping that 2018 can make up for it!
Check out my list below of the upcoming theatrical animated films set for release next year! Bear in mind that these are only the animated films with verified US/Canada release dates and that any and all dates are subject to change at any time. Enjoy!
Pixar’s 8th feature film is one hailed by many as a perfect film, not just one of their favorite animated films, but a film that deserved a Best Picture nomination at the Academy Awards. I personally don’t love this film all that much, but I definitely do like it. Which film is that? Ratatouille, of course!
Pixar’s The Incredibles has quite a devoted fanbase and probably rightly so. The 2004 hit film from Pixar isn’t my favorite, but it’s a wonderfully made film. The fanbase so loved it that a sequel has even been planned by Disney/Pixar in the coming years.
For those who don’t know, The Incredibles tells the story of a family of superheros who has to go into hiding after the world doesn’t feel safe with them around.
As you all know, Brad Bird’s secret Disney film project, “1952”, has been causing a lot of talk amongst the Disney fans and movie lovers alike. This has been escalated recently after Mr. Bird tweeted pictures of a Disney box with paraphernalia apparently associated with this motion picture. And now, we have even newer developments: The film is now renamed as “Tomorrowland”! This will be sure to get tongues wagging again! Whaddaya think it’s about? Does an adventure occur at Tomorrowland? Is it about the formation of Tomorrowland? Does it have nothing to do with Tomorrowland and is just given a distracting name? Lemme know in the comments.
Brad Bird’s secret project tentatively starring George Clooney entitled, “1952” has been….well, kept a secret. But the director has tweeted two photos that may help us form hypotheses on what this film could possibly be about!
Well, let’s hear your hypotheses! What do you think this film is about?
