Disney announced today that Disney XD will launch a reboot of the 80s animated TV series, Ducktales. The original show lasted from 1987 to 1990 and spawned a feature film, DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp. It featured the adventures of multi-zillionaire Scrooge McDuck, his three great-nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie and a bunch of eccentric secondary characters.
ABC's Good Morning America just revealed the first trailer for Disney's upcoming Frozen Fever. The team that brought us Frozen is back for a short film set in Arendelle and it looks like Elsa, Anna Olaf and Kristoff are not the only characters from the feature film to return, as many familiar faces appear in the trailer. You can also catch some notes from the new song Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez have written for the short.
But enough talking. Watch the trailer after the break.
The LEGO Movie 2 is no more. Fear not though, because the film is simply undergoing a minor title change. It will now be known as the more meta The LEGO Movie Sequel. It was also announced that directors of the first film Chris Miller and Phil Lord won't return at the helm, as they probably are overwhelmed by other directing projects; Rob Schrab will replace them for the sequel.

StudioCanal UK's YouTube channel released a new trailer for Ghibli's The Tale of the Princess Kaguya. It features voices from the English dub version, including Chloë Grace Moretz as the titular character, and displays some of the - justifiably - high praise the film has been gathering from critics. The trailer also casually mentions that the Ghibli film is up for a Best Animated Feature Academy Award later today.

|The first concept art released for the yet untitled film|
Yes, you read that right. After The Book of Life (which was received reasonably well by this blog), Reel FX and writer/director Jorge Gutierrez are teaming up again for a multi-picture deal; this partnership will first bring us a story taking its cues from three distinct cinema genres: kung fu, space opera and western.

In an interview with veteran Pixar film composer Randy Newman, Classic FM got what could be an interesting bit of information regarding Lee Unkrich's upcoming Dìa de los Muertos. Here's what Randy Newman had to say:
I’m not so sure I don’t have a reputation for being a little trouble. Lee Unkrich isn’t going to use me, I don’t think. And not only that, Lee Unkrich had Toy Story 3 temped with my music and it was limiting to me. It was fine, the movie did great and everything and maybe I’m wrong and if I look back on it I won’t know the difference, but it didn’t fit hand in glove the way I would have tried to do. And he fell in love with the temp, very much so. Now he’s not going to use me to work with him again. He’s doing a musical now.
