Disney has been one busy studio of late. As their D23 fades into the past, we got Pixar updates on all their upcoming releases including Finding Dory, the surprise appearance of Angelina Jolie for Maleficent as well as Chris Evans and Anthony Mackie talking up Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
The live action slate got a big boost as Disney released the logos for four of their most anticipated movies in the next two years. First up is the highly anticipated sequel to The Muppets -- Muppets Most Wanted.
The first Muppets Most Wanted teaser trailer has premiered, and as you can see, it looks like a madcap, hilarious and musical journey through Europe as the gang is reunited and out on a European tour. Ricky Gervais, Tina Fey and Ty Burrell play the human parts.
Maleficent tells the story of the villain of Sleeping Beauty that has never before been told. Jolie could not have been a better choice and there is something about that film’s logo that truly fits the dark, yet compelling world.
A film that has to be close to the hearts of everyone at Disney is Saving Mr. Banks. The movie, teased in the Saving Mr. Banks trailer, follows the story of how Walt Disney (Tom Hanks) secured the rights and made Mary Poppins an instant classic.
Finally, Tomorrowland made a splash, and for a film we know so little about, it was nice to get a bit of a scoop from the D23 fan fest. Brad Bird is directing from a script by Damon Lindelof that stars George Clooney, Hugh Laurie, Raffey Cassidy and Britt Robertson. All we know, other than the creative team is that Sean Bailey, head of Disney, announced that the film will be an “action-packed adventure” and will debut December 12, 2014.
