Film
Views Coco

Coco is a beautiful film in a lot of ways — artistically, musically, and culturally. But narratively it’s just a ghost of the type of stories we’re used to from Pixar.

Artists
Views Production Designer Carlos Zaragoza puts a smile on The Emoji Movie

We have a chat to learn about the inspirations and the challenges for this interesting film project.

Artists
Views Pixar Production Designer Harley Jessup “remembers” Coco

Our exclusive interview with the veteran Pixar team member also gives a peek at the gorgeous imagery from the upcoming film.

DVD
Views Justice League Action – Superpowers Unite: Season One, Part One

The World’s Greatest Superheroes battle the forces of evil in colorful bite-sized stories that are perfect for younger kids and their parents.

Film
Views My Little Pony: The Movie

The surprisingly action-packed My Little Pony: The Movie should delight fans of the series, while newcomers can appreciate the splashy animation and great songs.

Blu-ray
Views Star Wars – Rebels: Complete Season Three

The crew of the Ghost face off against Grand Admiral Thrawn as the penultimate season of Rebels sees the Alliance fully formed and the story inches towards A New Hope.

Artists
Views Disney historian Didier Ghez reveals the hidden art of Disney’s late golden age

We discuss the third volume in this important book series, in an exclusive interview with the author.

Film
Views The Lego Ninjago Movie

The Lego Ninjago Movie is enjoyable but not at all awesome. While there is some fun to be had, it’s hard to spin it as anything else but a letdown.

Event Coverage
Views 2017 San Diego Comic Con Exclusive

An exclusive recap of the annual convention, including coverage of Rocko’s Modern Life, DuckTales, The Legend of Korra, the Adam West Celebration, and the Hanna-Barbera 60th Anniversary!

Artists
Views A tribute to X. Atencio

We acknowledge the recent passing of a Disney legend by re-presenting a series of interviews that Jeremie completed with the fondly remembered artist and Imagineer.

DVD
Views The Powerpuff Girls: The Last Donnycorn

The Powerpuff Girls come dangerously close to not saving the day in this disappointingly underwhelming collection of episodes.

Television
Views DuckTales

Woo-hoo!

Artists
Views “With a smile and a song” with music historian James Bohn

Find out more about the Music In Disney’s Animated Features, a new book addressing this under-represented aspect of Disney research, in our exclusive interview!

Event Coverage
Views 2017 D23 Expo Exclusive

An exclusive recap of Disney’s biennial event, including the animation and live-action panels, Hercules 20th anniversary, and Oswald The Lucky Rabbit’s 90th birthday!

Television
Views Rick And Morty: Rickmancing The Stone

Adult Swim’s brilliant series is back for its third season, possibly more hilarious and twisted than ever. If you’re not already watching it, now’s the time to start.

Film
Views The Emoji Movie

The Emoji Movie is a stupid idea for an animated movie which is also probably better than it deserves to be.

Event Coverage
Views VIEW Conference 2017: an interview with director Maria Elena Gutierrez

Jeremie has an exclusive interview with the director of this important graphics and animation conference.

DVD
Views Adventure Time: The Complete Seventh Season

Continuing its creative storytelling and ambitious world-building, this show doesn’t lose any of its spark, also experimenting with its first miniseries: Marceline-centric Stakes.

Film
Views Despicable Me 3

Though it’s elevated by plenty of laughs and a fun new bad guy, Despicable Me 3 would’ve benefited from a little more focus…and, dare we say it, more Minions.

Film
Views Cars 3

Cars 3 is a little too similar to the original model. But with fun characters, nice writing, and top of the line animation, the film easily leaves the previous entry of the franchise in the dust.

Artists
Views Production Designer Bill Cone feels at “Eze” in the world of Cars 3

To get behind-the-scenes of one of summer’s most anticipated films, we met with Bill Cone, who was instrumental in giving Cars 3 its visual identity and soul.

Film
Views Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie

With fun animation, hit-or-miss jokes, and a meandering plot, Captain Underpants is a mixed bag, somewhere between “not bad” and “not great”, and more tepid than epic.

Film
Views Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman is a pretty good superhero movie and the best DCEU film to date, boosted by Gal Gadot’s performance and director Patty Jenkins’ storytelling.

Blu-ray
Views The Red Turtle

The award-winning Studio Ghibli film, that actually is a European production, has characters that never speak, but the film has plenty to say.

Event Coverage
Views Star Vs. The Forces Of Evil Tribute Exhibition and Panel Event

An exclusive visit to a tribute exhibition and panel event for Disney XD’s hit series, with behind the scenes stories, details of Season 3, and a look at the various art on show!
