Star Wars Goes Rogue
When Disney ripped the Star Wars universe from the cold dead hands of George Lucas, many were afraid of the franchise's future. Those people were wrong. There are plenty of times Disney has made epic and costly mistakes, but they typically come in the form of a John Carter or Lone Ranger. Typically, Disney's misfires are attempts at future… Continue reading Star Wars Goes Rogue

Disney’s Beauty and the Beast Photos Released
Disney has been having varying success with its live-action recreations of classic animated films. The Jungle Book was phenomenal; so much so that director Jon Favreau has since been tasked with bringing a "live-action" version of The Lion King to theaters. I say "live-action" in quotes because it would technically just be realistic animation, as there are no humans… Continue reading Disney’s Beauty and the Beast Photos Released
