Star Wars: The Musical - An amazing Disney parody! [video]

There have been a lot of Disney/Star Wars "what if" art pieces but I think this new video steals the spotlight! This great video reimagines Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope as a Disney musical and it is brilliantly made! Watch as the video progresses through the entire film and draws inspiration from many different Disney and Star Wars classic songs.
"The Star Wars Musical is a fan film that parodies if Star Wars was a Disney Musical. It's a product of a year and a half of work when a group of dedicated fans and film professionals came together to create the ultimate love letter to their favorite fandoms." Enjoy!



Featured music includes parodies of:

Star Wars Main Theme
Belle - Beauty and the Beast
A Whole New World - Aladdin
Under the Sea - The Little Mermaid
Cantina Band
Princess Leia's Theme
When You Wish Upon A Star
Circle of Life - The Lion King

Could Rain Johnson direct Star Wars: Episode VIII?

Image
Disney and LucasFilm have been keeping their fans busy with all the recent news updates concerning the Star Wars franchise and it seems that they are not done.

Variety is reporting that Looper director Rain Johnson is now in talks to write and direct Star Wars: Episode VIII! Given that Star Wars: Episode VII has just started filming this is pretty big news and shows that Disney is taking the franchise seriously and getting things ready well in advance.

Rain Johnson joins recently signed directors Gareth Edwards (Godzilla) and Josh Trank (Chronicle) in the Star Wars family. Edwards and Trank have each signed on to direct their own stand alone Star Wars film, though what film they are directing has not yet been revealed.

Are you excited at the idea of Rain Johnson signing on for Star Wars: Episode VIII?

Every spoken English word in Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope sorted alphabetically! [video]

Check out this incredible video that edits Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope and sorts every spoken English word alphabetically. This may seem like a weird thing to be but it's an impressive undertaking.
"All of the English dialogue in "Star Wars", split into words, and sorted alphabetically.
Fun facts:
The word "lightsaber" only appears once in this film.
There are 43m5s of spoken English, 81m39s of other.
The most common word is "the", of course, said 368 times.
The word with most screen time is "you", at 52.56 seconds.
There are 1695 different words, and 11684 total words.
The longest words are "responsibility," "malfunctioning", "worshipfulness", and "identification", all 14 letters.
I labeled the words manually (!) using some software I wrote specifically for the purpose.
This is the Special Edition to troll Han-shot-first purists. Everyone knows the orig is the most legit." Say what yo…

Watch Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint audition for the Harry Potter franchise! [video]

Take a look at this fun video of the three main stars of the Harry Potter franchise, Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint as they do a read through during their audition process for the films. The roles were perfectly cast and to see them in this video so young and then to watch them literally grow up on screen in the films is a weird experience. The read through is a lot of fun and interesting to see how they took direction at a young age. Enjoy!

Is this when we could see a stand alone Batman film? Find out the rumored date and working title!

Image
Even though Batman won't have his own film, he will remain busy over the next few years with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League. Fans now want to know when they'll get another stand alone Batman film and it seems that the Latino Review has an answer for them.

Latino Review is reporting that Warner Bros. is looking to release a stand alone Batman film in the year 2019 after its current rumored line-up is through. They also revealed that the working title for this film is "The Batman". This is pure rumor at the moment but Latino Review has an impressive track record of being right on their scoops and rumors. I'd imagine that Warner Bros. signed Ben Affleck on for a set number of films that would include his own Batman film so this is plausible.

Find out the difference between Nintendo's Amiibo figures and Skylanders and Disney Infinity!

Image
When it was revealed that Nintendo would be selling figures that would interact with their games fans wondered how these figures would differ from those from Skylanders and Disney Infinity. (Then they cried a little bit because they knew they would spend all their money to have them.) The new figures from Nintendo will be called Amiibos.

Nintendo of America executive vice president of sales and marketing Scott Moffitt recently answered some of these concerns during an interview with GamesIndustry. A lot of great information came out of the interview including that since Amiibos use the Wii U GamePad's NFC function there is no need for a "Starter Kit" and a separate portal to purchase.
"That's what we will always do. We want to be different. We want to create innovation and Amiibo is a perfect example. We didn't just mimic what's been done before with Skylanders and Infinity, we are bringing out a whole new idea in this toys-to-life gaming segment.  We&#…

Watch video of the full Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts line and Hogwarts Express train ride from Diagon Alley at Universal Orlando! [video]

Last night was the red carpet event for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter: Diagon Alley and it looked incredible! Stars of the film joined other celebrities and press to experience the new addition to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida and all initial reactions seemed to be extremely positive. The Hogsmeade section of the park is simply jaw dropping so I would expect this new section that will feature Diagon Alley and the Hogswarts Express (connecting the two sections) to be the same.

Below you can watch two videos that will surely impress you. The first video takes you through the full line for the Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts ride which includes the Gringotts Bank lobby, security check point and photo, Bill Weasley's office, vault elevator, and the loading area for the ride itself.

The second video will have you board the Hogwarts Express and take you on the complete trip from Hogsmeade Station to Kings Cross Station in Dia…

Jesse Eisenberg's hairstyle for Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is revealed!

Image
When word got out that Jesse Eisenberg had been cast as Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice one of the big questions was not about the actor himself but about his hair. Would Eisenberg be shaving his head to get the iconic Lex Luthor bald head look? Thanks to "Batman News" we know have our answer. From recent scenes show at Lex Corp it seems that Eisenberg will indeed have hair. However,
"It’s not Eisenberg’s typical curly look — it’s a bit longer, kind of loose and wavy, and it’s dirty blonde. Eisenberg’s Luthor has spastic mannerisms, like a 20-something guy that pounds energy drinks all day. I’m told that the scenes shot take place towards the beginning of the movie… so maybe there’s still a chance that Lex Luthor could show up bald by the end? We’ll have to wait and see." If it turns out that this was the beginning of the film and that by the end something causes Eisenberg to either voluntarily or involuntarily go bald then I am on board. This is …

Image
We have seen Shredder in the latest TV spots for the upcoming film Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles but thanks to ComicBookMovie.com fans can now take a look at the first high resolution image of the film's villain! He is pictured just after unleashing a few more of his "spikes" in what appears to be a fight scene between himself and Master Splinter, the sensei and adopted father of the Ninja Turtles. This new incarnation of the Shredder looks absolutely terrifying. I'm interested to see what kind of fighting style he'll use in the film and the mobility he'll have with a suit like that.

It's no surprise that Japan will be getting a few special collectors editions of the upcoming The Legend of Zelda spin-off game Hyrule Warriors for Nintendo's Wii U. Right now it is known that Japan will be getting a premium collectors edition and a "treasure box" collectors edition.

Confirmed - Jason Momao cast as Aquaman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League!

Image
There are times where rumors turn out to be gloriously true and that seems to be the case in the casting of Aquaman for the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The Hollywood Reporter has just confirmed that Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones, Stargate: Atlantis) has been cast as Aquaman for both Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League which will be shooting back to back.

The original rumor broke out last December by HitFix, but Momoa remained strong and gave no indication of his casting for the films. Aquaman will now be joining Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and Cyborg in the upcoming films. As a founding member of the Justice League it makes perfect sense that he added to the story and cast. At the moment there are no confirmations that either Green Lantern or the Flash will join the film but rumors have circulated about them as well.

Aquaman is a character who has been on the wrong end of jokes with comic fans for a long time so I think casting Momoa is the perfe…

These villainous descendants (Carlos, Mal, Evvie and Jay, respectively) are allowed into the kingdom to attend prep school alongside the offspring of iconic Disney heroes including Fairy Godmother, Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel and Mulan.

Trailer for the new Ninja Turtles documentary, Turtle Power: The Definitive History of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! [video]

Paramount Pictures has released the trailer for an all new documentary titled Turtle Power: The Definitive History of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. This new documentary will take fans through the entire history of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles from their begins as a comic to the world wide phenomenon that they have become.
"In the spring of 1984, a strange new comic book sat beside cash registers in select shops, too big to fit in the racks, and too weird to ignore. Eastman and Laird’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles presented a completely original breed of super hero. It was too bizarre, too crazy. It broke all the rules and should never have worked. Until it sold out. Again and again and again. For 30 years. Now, peek under the shell and see how this so-called “happy accident” defied every naysayer to become one of the most popular and beloved franchises in the world."Turtle Power looks like it will be an incredible documentary that I will definitely be picking up.
