ABC will be getting into the live TV musical event specials game with their own interpretation of The Little Mermaid, and they have already assembled quite a cast. Reports confirm that Moana‘s Auli’i Cravalho is set to star as Ariel. Meanwhile, Queen Latifah will play the singing sea witch Ursula, with Shaggy as Sebastian the crab. More on the report here below.
Crossovers are commonplace amongst the comic book movies. But one place that is waiting for it to happen is within the Disney universe, well at least its animated one. With so many Disney princesses at their disposal, it was only a matter of time before all of them would be brought together in one place. And we will see that happen in Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2. John C. Reilly returns to voice the title behemoth known to wreck things, while Sarah Silverman reprises her energetic Vanellope von Schweetz.
Some newly released images are giving us a look at the upcoming sequel. Not only do we get to see the Disney princesses gathered together, but we have our first official look at Yesss (voiced by Taraji P. Henson). Check out the images below.

Last year, Disney released two Oscar-nominated animated films: Zootopia and Moana. Choosing a favorite between the two was no easy decision. Both had gorgeous animation and both and beautiful stories to tell. The former had themes of inclusion and welcoming diversity, while the latter focused on a spirited young girl who strived for independence but also wanted to pay respect to her family’s history and culture. In the end, Zootopia came out the winner, but you can make an argument for Moana being the better film.
Now you’ll be able to make a comparison with Moana hitting Blu-ray shelves this week. The film, of course, comes chalk full of bonus feature goodies which include deleted scenes, an animated short, and the Polynesian culture that helped inspire the film in more ways than one. Check out the full review below.
Disney re-releasing current films as sing-alongs are quickly becoming a staple. Because it was such a hit with Frozen a few years back, the studio decided to bring it back again, this time for their current hit film Moana.
Last weekend, many turned to the movie theaters to get away from families or crazed shoppers. While there was a lot to offer, Moana ended up being the number one film of the weekend, taking in $82 million in its debut.
If you haven’t seen it yet, well then you’re missing out on one of the greatest Disney movies ever (check out our review here). And to prove it, Disney has released a full music sequence from the film that sees Dwayne Johnson singing his song “You’re Welcome.” Check it out below.
