Disney/Pixar TOY STORY 4 is coming in 2017 & Disney gives 'Star Wars Episode VII' official title name!

From: - Woody, Buzz, and the rest of the gang are coming back to a theater near you!

Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger today announced that plans are underway to bring Toy Story 4 to the big screen. John Lasseter, who helmed the first Toy Story movie in 1995—the world’s first computer-animated feature film—is returning to direct the new film, which opens a new chapter in the lives of Woody, Buzz Lightyear, and the Toy Story gang. The story was dreamt up by Lasseter, Andrew Stanton, Pete Docter, and Lee Unkrich, the storytellers who have been the driving force behind all three Toy Story films.

“We love these characters so much; they are like family to us,” Lasseter said. “We don’t want to do anything with them unless it lives up to or surpasses what’s gone before. Toy Story 3 ended Woody and Buzz’s story with Andy so perfectly that for a long time, we never even talked about doing another Toy Story movie. But when Andrew, Pete, Lee, and I came up with this new idea, I just could not stop thinking about it. It was so exciting to me, I knew we had to make this movie—and I wanted to direct it myself.”

Writing team Rashida Jones and Will McCormack (Celeste and Jesse Forever) came on to the project, which is being produced by Pixar veteran Galyn Susman.

We’ve been excited to continue Woody and Buzz’s adventures with their fellow playthings in shorts and TV specials like Toy Story of TERROR! and the upcoming Toy Story That Time Forgot, but this will mark their first feature film appearance since Toy Story 3 in 2010.

The film is slated for release on June 16, 2017, and we can’t wait!

And - Star Wars Episode VII officially has a name to go with that number.
The movie will be called Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Disney announced Thursday. In a post on the official Star Wars Facebook page, they unveiled the title and revealed that the movie has finished its principal photography.

BuzzFeed gives YOU 6 reasons to fall in love with Disney's BIG HERO 6! has 6 Reasons why you will fall in love with Disney's newest animated film "Big Hero 6". They say its more than just the animation giant’s first superhero feature.

 1. There’s plenty of Pixar to it.

Disney Big Hero 6, which is directed by Don Hall (Winnie the Pooh) and Chris Williams (Bolt), is the product of the ruthlessly calculated mating of two giant brands — Marvel, owners of the comic book superhero team on which the movie’s loosely based, and Walt Disney Animation Studios, Disney’s flagship of animated features going back to 1937’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
But in spirit, it owes just as much to Pixar, the other animation studio that executive producer John Lasseter oversees, and that isn’t releasing a film this year.
Big Hero 6 is a children’s film, but it’s one in which death is a real presence. It’s more emotionally sophisticated, dealing with themes of grief and finding your place in the world that are more grounded than the high-flying adventures they’re surrounded by would have you expect.

Disney's Hollywood Studios icon Sorcerer's hat coming down & Another NEW trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron!

LAKE BUENA VISTA – The sorcerer's hat is coming down at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Central Florida. Disney officials say the giant Blue sorcerer's hat display will be replaced in 2015.

The hat greeted fans who entered the park and was inspired by a story in the classic 1940 Disney film Fantasia, in which sorcerer apprentice Mickey Mouse steals the hat and disaster ensues.

Disney unveiled the hat in 2001 as the icon for the park in honor of the 100th anniversary of Walt Disney's birthday. The park was formerly known as Disney-MGM Studios and is the third of four Disney theme parks located in the Disney controlled municipality of Bay Lake.

Disney has yet to say what will replace the hat.

And - A week after their first trailer leaked ahead of schedule, Marvel has released a second 'special look' trailer for the Avengers: Age of Ultron.
