About a year ago, Disney released "The Princess and the Frog," their joyful, totally brilliant return to hand-drawn animation. And nobody fucking went. Sure, Princess Tiana toys flew off the shelves of Target stores nationwide, but this was probably to be expected when the studio finally allowed an African American character into the hallowed stable of Disney princesses. But the movie, as a whole, didn't do exceptionally well, putting into doubt the viability of the Disney Princess line of products which, amongst other things, has put the Fantasyland expansion at Walt Disney World into question and forced the brass to change the title of this year's animated entry, from the instantly identifiable "Rapunzel" to the more nebulous "Tangled."

With Pixar officially launching the marketing campaign for next summer's "Cars 2" by dropping a couple of fresh teaser trailers for the film earlier this week, the biggest question mark that was left with fans was, "Who is voicing the damn thing?" Sure, Larry The Cable Guy (god, we hate typing that) and Owen Wilson are back but aside from Michael Caine, there were a slew of voices that sounded familiar but we couldn't put a finger on it.

"Cars," the runt of the Pixar litter, is getting a sequel whether you like it or not. Frankly we're more interested in the new "Toy Story" short film that will precede the feature but we suppose there are a legion of little kids who are going to be all over a film about talking cars that drive around real fast so we suppose they'll eat this one up.

Yes, we know, this is the third post in two days about this film and what can we say, we seem to be cursed with "Winnie The Pooh," as just as we make a post, something brand new emerges moments later. So keeping that in mind, just after we posted a first look at the film this morning the brand new trailer for the film appeared online. So apologies if you're seeing the word 'Pooh' on your screen more often than you would like.

Jim Cummings To Voice Winnie The Pooh, John Cleese To NarrateDisney, once the prestigious leaders of animated family fare, have struggled considerably in recent years to remain creative and relevant in a climate dominated by the likes of Pixar and DreamWorks Animation. Their most recent in-house efforts, "Meet the Robinsons," "Bolt" and "The Princess and the Frog" have been middling efforts and their upcoming "Tangled" has virtually no heat behind it (maybe we're just the wrong demographic but the buzz on that one seems non-existent at this point). So it's no surprise then that Disney is trotting out a successful, cherished brand to try and right the ship.

Everybody Was Kung Fu Fighting... AgainGeeks flipping for any kind of morsel of news were all jazzed up this weekend when the synopsis and new logo (wow!) for "Kung Fu Panda 2: Kaboom Of Doom" appeared online on the film's official site. Now something a little more concrete, though barely, has arrived in the film's teaser trailer, which like most teaser trailers doesn't show a lot. All of the original characters (and their celebrity voices) will be reprising their respective roles; Jack Black (Po), Angelina Jolie (Tigress), Jackie Chan (Monkey), Seth Rogen (Mantis), Lucy Liu (Viper), David Cross (Crane) and Dustin Hoffman (Master Shifu). New additions include Gary Oldman as the new villain, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Michelle Yeoh and Victor Garber.
