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!

Artists
Views For Smurfs: The Lost Village‘s art department, it’s great to feel blue!

We discuss the new design of the Smurfs and their world, with the new film’s character designer and production designer, in this exclusive interview.

DVD
Views Tangled: Before Ever After

The Tangled television series kicks off with this debut movie, whose job is simply to restore Rapunzel’s golden locks for the ongoing show in an entertaining enough fashion.

Book
Views The Road To Broadway And Beyond: Disney’s Aladdin – A Whole New World

As opulent as the film and current stage smash it documents and celebrates, Michael Lassell’s book is a wish come true for fans.

Film
Views The Boss Baby

While there is some fun for kids in The Boss Baby, adults sitting with them will be wishing they were at the grown-ups table instead.

Blu-ray
Views Sing

Fun and funny, with a killer, wide-ranging soundtrack that overcomes its cartoon karaoke concept, and some great character animation, Sing turns out to be the best singing contest on screens right now.

Film
Views Beauty and the Beast

While it manages to be good, the live-action adaption of Disney’s animated classic suffers from glaring flaws that make the film a disappointment given the hype and ambitions.

Blu-ray
Views Miss Hokusai

This tale of famous Japanese artists – a man and his daughter – is told using Buddhist ideas of life’s simple pleasures, rather than trying to fit a Western-style genre. Its rewards are subtle and may be unexpected.

Blu-ray
Views Moana: Ultimate Collectors Edition

Disney’s second animated smash of 2016 is this brilliant action adventure musical from masters of the craft John Musker and Ron Clements, and this disc presentation is as solid as they come!

DVD
Views Mickey And The Roadster Racers

This Mickey Mouse Clubhouse spin-off offers plenty of slapstick-heavy action for kids, even as some adults wonder how much mileage Disney can get out of it.

Television
Views Legend Quest

Endure the rough start and one will find Legend Quest to be an exciting, dramatic adventure filled with scary creatures and fascinating mythologies to explore.

DVD
Views The Powerpuff Girls: Tiara Trouble

Though it may not capture the absurd magic of the original series, the new Powerpuff Girls still provides plenty of laughs for both kids and adults.

Composers
Views Welcome…to Moana orchestrator and song arranger Dave Metzger!

Learn how the Disney tradition and the sounds of the Pacific combined to form the masterful soundtrack to Disney’s Moana, in our exclusive interview.

Blu-ray
Views Trolls: Party Edition

The delightful DreamWorks musical hit looks great on disc, even if the number of extras included isn’t exactly hair-raising.

Tooning In
Views Oscar Weekend 2017

The winners of the 89th Annual Academy Awards will be revealed this weekend. Here are all the details you need for our 13th Annual Oscar Event.

Film
Views The Lego Batman Movie

Despite a thin story The Lego Batman Movie is an extremely fun ride with great animation, music, and acting. Though maybe next time leave the more dreary plotlines to that other Dark Knight.

Blu-ray
Views Pinocchio: Walt Disney Signature Collection

Walt Disney’s epic masterpiece joins the Signature line, with a typically light treatment where the (lack of new) supplements can’t hold a candle to the brilliant feature.

Contest Corner
Views Animated Views’ 2017 Oscar Contest

Animated Views is giving away $50 worth of movies — your choice of either an Amazon gift card or a Fandango gift card — during our 13th Annual Oscar Event! Enter today for your chance to win!

Blu-ray
Views Lego Star Wars – The Freemaker Adventures: Complete Season One

This slick and exciting Lucasfilm show earns a surprising amount of credit for crafting a credible Star Wars story, even if it is told in a humorous fashion.

Yearbooks

Blu-ray
Views Pete’s Dragon

One of Disney’s biggest surprises of the year is this wonderfully good-natured gem, a mighty fine family film that stands out from all the other talking animals and fish currently out there. Just lovely.
