Doctor Strange

It will be exciting to see how the Marvel Cinematic Universe will progress after Phase II. With Guardians of the Galaxy taking us to galaxies unknown, and Ant-Man introducing us to the quantum realm, what sort of dimensions could we expect to see in Phase 3? Well, Doctor Strange will attempt to give us a look at what’s to come.

Marvel President Kevin Feige MC’d the Marvel panel at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, CA, on Saturday and offered attendees a look at the film, which came in the form of concept art from Marvel’s art department. This is because director Scott Derrickson hasn’t shot anything yet, as filming is scheduled to begin this November. As he would explain, these concept art pieces aren’t revealed to the public this early during the pre-production process, and came straight from the vaults of the Marvel Art Department. As the photos started to be displayed, we clearly see that Doctor Strange will truly be Marvel’s Fantasia (as previously revealed).

More on what we saw at the D23 Expo here below.

Captain America: Civil War

Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War is currently the only Phase 3 film in production. With others expected to shoot later in the year, the film was the only one who was able to show some footage at the D23 Expo, in Anaheim, California on Saturday. Before any footage was shown, Kevin Feige revealed that the Russo Brothers are currently filming in Germany with one week of production left. Of course they couldn’t go into great detail about it, because who wants to hear Anthony Mackie and Chris Evans talk (both of whom were also present for the Marvel panel) about a film, when they can show footage for everyone to get excited about.

Check out our description of the footage below.

D23 Expo 2015: ‘The Jungle Book’: A Live Twist On An Animated Classic

Disney The Jungle Book live-action film title card

Disney’s recent turn to modernize their animated classics by giving them a live-action adaptation has been a successful product thus far. With Maleficent and Cinderella already proving to be box office hits, the studio shows no signs of slowing down, by releasing more of these adaptations. Perhaps the most interesting of all the adaptations would be The Jungle Book. Now, it’s not interesting in a perplexing manner, but in how they approached the production of the film. The adaptation combines live-action and CGI to form a beautiful story, based on the animated film and Rudyard Kipling’s classic novel.

During the film’s presentation at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, CA, today, director Jon Favreau talked about the production of The Jungle Book, with his cast Ben Kingsley, who voices Bagheera; Lupita Nyong’O, who voices the protective mother wolf Raksha; and newcomer Neel Sethi, who plays the human lead Mowgli.

More on the production of the film as well as description of the footage here below.

D23 Expo 2015: Colin Trevorrow To Direct ‘Star Wars Episode IX’

Star Wars title

During Comic-Con in July, there was a report that Star Wars: Episode IX was to be directed by Colin Trevorrow. At the time, it was suspected that he would make an appearance to confirm the news during the panel at Disney’s D23 Expo on Saturday. No such news came, and some had thought that Disney and Lucasfilm would let Rian Johnson, or even J.J. Abrams return to direct. But now we can confirm that Trevorrow is indeed directing Star Wars: Episode IX.

The announcement was made at the D23 Expo earlier today. While Trevorrow wasn’t able to make an appearance to talk about the project itself — heck Rian Johnson is still writing Episode VIII as we speak — the Jurassic World director was able to share some of this thoughts about taking on such an iconic franchise.

Check out what he had to say below.

Star Wars Rogue One Title

Filming has just commenced for A Star Wars Story: Rogue One, formally titled Star Wars Anthology. The film, the first of many planned spinoffs taking place in Star Wars canon, is set in between the events of Episode III and Episode IV and will focus on a group of Rebel fighters who go on a daring mission to steal the plans for the Death Star.

At the D23 Expo on Saturday, director Gareth Edwards couldn’t reveal too much about the film because it is early in the production phase, but he was able to reveal the very first look at the movie’s cast, the group of rebel fighters, which will be lead by Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything).

D23 Expo 2015: ‘Zootopia’ Introduces Us To A World Of Anamorphic Disney Fun

Disney's Zootopia Gazelle voiced by Shakira

Walt Disney Animation Studios opened up their panel on Friday at the D23 Expo with Zootopia, the anamorphic film that brings back talking animals to the Disney animation studios, but with a buddy cop twist.
Disney Animation’s Zootopia is set in a sprawling metropolis built, run, and populated by non-human animals. We’ve already got a hint at what is to come from the film, but no real story.

For Zootopia, directors Rich Moore and Byron Howard went to the Animal Kingdom theme park at Disney World in Orlando, FL, to do research, and and were sent to Kenya to get a real sense of animal movement and their behavior in a natural environment. They soon developed an idea of how these animals would move without thumbs or hands. For instance, if a camel were to walk on hind legs, it would be more of a wonky walking stance due to their leg structure. And for an elephant to grab a scoop of ice cream, they would roll it using their trunks.
