I receive a lot of entertainment news – movie releases and clips, advanced TV programming notices, music drop dates, etc. – and it’s really more than I could conceivably post about without renaming my blog “Entertainment From the ‘Ville”. As a Disney fan, I do generally try and share some of that news, and occasionally a children’s program update.
There’s a lot of it that may be of real interest to you all, though, so I’ve decided to try and write a weekly round up. Check out all the upcoming movies below.
Marvel’s Iron Man 3 – May 3, 2013 Release Date #IronMan3
Fun new LEGO-inspired movie posters and new trailer now out.
On New Year’s I posted a recap of my favorite Disney movies in 2012. There were so many great ones! Next year will be no different: the line-up of releases that fall under the Disney umbrella are spectacular! As each movie gets closer I’ll have more updates for you about each and hopefully some reviews, too!
I honestly can’t pick which one I’m most excited about. Monsters University, Iron Man 3, and Thor are probably my top choices: we love the Marvel franchise and Monsters, Inc. is one of my favorite Disney movies so I’m excited for this “prequel”. But Saving Mr. Banks is high on my list, too, as I love Disney history and I’m interested in the story of how Mr. Walt Disney brought Mary Poppins to the big screen.
The newest poster for Monsters University is out and I’ll be honest – it’s getting me even more excited! The lettermen’s jackets that they are wearing are the same colors as my school colors! Seeing Mike and Sulley – two of my all-time favorite Disney*Pixar characters – in their “cool dude” pose with their school gear definitely brings me back.
Monsters, Inc. is a movie I could watch every day! If you’ve never seen it, or if you missed it the first time it was in theaters, your second chance is coming soon! Monsters, Inc. will return to theaters shown in 3D on December 19th. We definitely have plans to go. We need a big-screen experience to tide us over until the June 21st release of Monsters University!
Will you be seeing Monsters, Inc. in theaters this month?
Disney/Pixar’s BRAVE is in theaters now, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t still hard at work with new projects. One of their next films will be Monsters University, the prequel to the highly-praised Monsters, Inc. Directed by Dan Scanlon (Cars) and produced by Kori Rae (Up, The Incredibles, Monsters, Inc.), the film unlocks the door to how Mike Wazowski (voiced by Billy Crystal) and James P. Sullivan (voiced by John Goodman) overcame their initial differences and became best of friends.
We are really looking forward to the film. Monsters, Inc. is one of my all-time favorite movies. Between Mike’s jokes, Sully’s soft heart, Boo’s adorableness, the surprise ending – there was nothing about it we don’t like. We own it on DVD and watch it now and then. Bubbles loves the monsters and giggles right along with Boo. Hopefully we will be able to take her to see the new one in the theater! The film opens on June 21st, 2013 and will be shown in Disney Digital 3D in select theaters. While it’s almost an entire year away, the first trailer has been released! There are four slightly different versions; this one is the “Clothes” one.
You can also head over to the Monsters University Facebook page and see three other version of the trailer. Vote for your favorite and the winning line from the fan favorite will be drawn by a Pixar artist and shared exclusively with Monsters University Facebook fans!
