Pixar’s Onward may open in theaters in 2020, but we are getting our first look at the film that combines fantasy and reality.
In the upcoming animated feature, Tom Holland and Chris Pratt play two magical elves who embark on a quest to find out if there is still magic left in the world. It will be the studio’s newest original film following 2017’s Coco. Check out the two new images below.
Apple has unveiled Apple TV+, their very own subscription-based streaming service. This is a huge moment for the tech giant, which will now be entering the ring with the likes of Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu to deliver original content from some of the best storytellers. Steven Spielberg, J.J. Abrams, M. Night Shyamalan, Ron Howard, Octavia Spencer, Jennifer Aniston, Steve Carell, Sofia Coppola, Reese Witherspoon, Hailee Steinfeld, and Damien Chazelle are among those who already have titles on the way which will be available exclusively on Apple TV+.
Though a lot of the details on what we could see are still limited, a pair of preview videos show us what to expect from the streaming service. Check out the videos below.
Following the news last month that Anne Hathaway will play the Grand High Witch in director Robert Zemeckis‘s new adaptation of the 1983 Roald Dahl book The Witches, comes word that fellow Oscar winner Octavia Spencer is in talks to join her on the cast. Earlier today we saw an official trailer for one of Spencer’s latest, a horror titled Ma.
In addition to Spencer joining the cast it’s also being reported that Jahzir Bruno and Codie-Lei Eastick are currently in negotiations for roles, and that Black-ish creator and writer of the upcoming Shaft and Coming to America sequels Kenya Barris will now be co-writing the screenplay with Zemeckis.
We’ve seen Octavia Spencer in some pretty inspiring and Oscar-winning roles. But never quite something like Ma, which Universal Pictures has released an official trailer for.
In the film Spencer plays as a quiet loner who helps some teenagers buy booze and sees the opportunity to make some new friends by taking them to her basement. Though they suspect something, it turns out she isn’t all that bad. That is until she becomes more aggressive as her popularity starts to rise. And when one of the kids breaks the ground rules of never going upstairs, things in this once small quiet town become really scary. Check out the trailer for Ma below.
Last year, at the D23 Expo 2017, Disney announced a previously untitled Pixar project that would be directed by Dan Scanlon (Monsters University) and produced by Kori Rae. At the time the film was described as a fantasy set in suburbia.
Now Disney and Pixar have titled their fantasy pic Onward. In addition to that, they have confirmed that the voice cast will include talents like Chris Pratt, Tom Holland, Octavia Spencer, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus. More on the report below.
