We got a second trailer for Disney's upcoming October 18th sequel, Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, & it definitely didn’t cement the hope I got from the first. Where it does still look like we’re gonna get a much more evilesque Maleficent this time around, my biggest gripe from the first, we got the reason for this in this trailer. Which if I'm reading into correctly it looks like once again there's worse at hand. I have a feeling Michelle Pfeiffer is going to have a much more manipulative evil to her than we see in the trailer. Not to mention the scene after getting wounded where Maleficent is rescued, finding her lost people. Which is what this will them turn into next with Aurora in the middle. Or a facsimile of. Anyway, I’ll pass. I’m gonna see it anyway obviously. Curiosity and all. I’m just definitely not as pumped as I was at first. As it looks like we'll be getting some of the same out of this oneas we did its predecessor. What a waste of great casting. What did y'all think though? Put it in the comments, like, & share.
The first Official Trailer for Disney's upcoming live-action Mulan is here, & it's awesome. I am not a fan of the original animated film. I felt it was a story of a girl turned warrior with no real evidence of which contained in the film. I’m not talkin' Kill Bill, but at least a little Ninja Turtle martial arts action could've worked. That why when I heard they were going the martial arts epic route with the remake I was totally intrigued. This trailer was everything I wanted from this adaptation. I absolutely loved it. They're really talong this seriously, & first & foremost it's a martial arts epic. I can’t wait for this film. It's got giant names in martial arts for years with Jet Li & Donnie Yen, two of my favorites, & according to the synopsis even, is staying closer to the original content: “When the Emperor of China issues a decree that one man per family must serve in the Imperial Army to defend the country from Northern invaders, Hua Mulan, the eldest daughter of an honored warrior, steps in to take the place of her ailing father. Masquerading as a man, Hua Jun, she is tested every step of the way and must harness her inner-strength and embrace her true potential. It is an epic journey that will transform her into an honored warrior and earn her the respect of a grateful nation…and a proud father. “Mulan” features a celebrated international cast that includes: Yifei Liu as Mulan; Donnie Yen as Commander Tung; Jason Scott Lee as Böri Khan; Yoson An as Cheng Honghui; with Gong Li as Xianniang and Jet Li as the Emperor. The film is directed by Niki Caro from a screenplay by Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver and Elizabeth Martin & Lauren Hynek based on the narrative poem “The Ballad of Mulan.”” I’m super pumped for this. Crazy considering it's essentially a remake of a film I don’t really care for. How bout y’all? In or no? Put it in the comments, like, & share.
Somehow this trailer was just as awesome as the first for Frozen II, the highly anticipated sequel to one of the highest grossing pieces of animation ever. Along with it we get se teases of finding put how Elsa got her powers, as well as her transition from Queen to Superhero. As the trailer states they've always thought her powers were to much for the world to stand, but now they question if it'll be enough to save it. I'm so excited for this film as the last one was pretty centered in one place. As this one takes the story into new heights with a more action & adventure direction. These previews have brought me in with an amazing amount of anticipation for a film i thought i wasn't even gonna be to pumped about until I saw the first. In fact I kinda wish I could trade spots with Lion King on this one. I'm ready to build a snowman again! What about y'all? Am I the only one that dug this trailer as much as the first?

"Set in a suburban fantasy world, Disney and Pixar’s Onward introduces two teenage elf brothers who embark on an extraordinary quest to discover if there is still a little magic left out there. Pixar Animation Studios’ all-new original feature film is directed by Dan Scanlon and produced by Kori Rae—the team behind Monsters University.” That's the synopsis for the first official trailer for Onward, releasing in theaters on March 6, 2020, & honestly I'm not really feeling this one. Great cast attached, but this doesn't really even feel like a Pixar film to me. It could be great. Judging by just the synopsis & trailer though, it's nothing I'm really excited for. While it looks cute, not only was I not intrigued, it failed in its many attempts to make me laugh. The only thing that really got me was the unicorn gag. I loved that. I just couldn't help but keep thinking this felt like it came out of another studio, like DreamWorks. Hopefully before this comes out I'll see something that gets me excited. What about y'all? I'm curious to see if this did anything for anyone else. Put it in the comments, like, & share.
This official trailer is the first real trailer for the upcoming Toy Story 4. And if anything, it proved that the Toy Story franchise has found yet another way to tug on our heartstrings. June 21st we'll see Woody embark on an adventure to find a runaway toy that was homemade by little Bonnie from a spork. Forky is her favoritest toy in the world right now, & losing it would crush her. If that wasn't enough to get to us Woody seems to find another purpose in this trailer as he's reunited with Bo Peep. Who's been living amongst a group of lost toys. She starts to show him all the things a life outside of a child has to offer. Meanwhile, the rest of the gang attempt a rescue of their own it looks like. I was very pleasantly surprised by this trailer. I found myself wondering if it was to late for this. Not to mention, it's always dangerous to add a fourth to a trilogy. Especially a trilogy that's considered perfect like Toy Story. Just based on what we've seen here though this will contain all the heart of the originals, & leave us all weeping like little babies all over again. This has done exactly what it was supposed to do. It's amped up my excitement level more than it was before. I'm now all in for this round 4 with Woody, Buzz, & the rest of the gang. How about y'all though? What do y'all think after this? One too many, or has this put you on the same page as me, ready to go? Put it in the comments, like, & share.
So, after the initial Genie reveal for Aladdin, I thought it was going to take a whole lot to restore my trust the film being good. Looks like all it took was a full trailer. I'm not saying this made me go full 180. Not by any means. I still think their Jafar is far from the evilness of his animated counterpart. This guy still totally reminds me of the cologne guy at a department store. On top of that I'm not 100% on the look of Genie, even though this extended look helped a whole lot. This proved at least what I thought in Smith being a good pick for at least conveyingthe role, & seeing a little magic behind him helped the overall look. Which was my only problem after that first reveal. Those being the only shakey parts still though. As the rest of this film looks amazing. The parkour style chase in the beginning looked thrilling, the carpet scenes were totally magical, & I'm way into the casting of Jasmine & Aladdin. So, while this didn't completely sell me on the look of Genie still, & more so the presence of Jafar, it did give me the impression that this is still going to be a very entertaining film. For right now I trust in Aladdin once again. What about y'all? The internet skewered this last time. Does this alleviate any of your worries as it did some of mine?

I'm officially super excited for Mary Poppins Returns after this trailer. They made sure to show you this has a little of everything you loved from the original. This gives a real look into what to expect from the upcoming sequel. It seems much in same ballpark as this year's Christopher Robin . As it looks like it's really going to deal with growing up, & forgetting what's important while lost in your grownup world. Which is also basically the original theme, totally forgetting your children while wrapped up in the complications of life. Mary Poppins pops in right when she's needed the most. With music, dancing, magic, & a little trip to an animated world. Writing all this brings me to my biggest 2 concerns. Are we just going through the motions of what has already been done? Just playing on nostalgia? And if not can Mary Poppins really return from 1964? Will this film work in 2018 with a mass audience? The first is the one that concerns me the most. This trailer looks more like a remake than a sequel. In fact, if you were to turn off the sound, I'd argue some would just think it was a remake. Putting that major concern aside though, I thought the trailer was amazing. Everyone looked perfect in their roles, the animation looked absolutely amazing, & it totally captured the spirit of the original Mary Poppins . There is a chance this just feels rehashed, but to judge just by this trailer alone, December 19th has a lot of potential to be great. I'm curious to hear what y'all think though?
