‘All I Want For Christmas’ Gets Animated

It is said that if a Christmas goes by without every human (no matter what their religion) hearing and singing along to Mariah Carey‘s festive classic, All I Want For Christmas, then the world will end. Thankfully that’s never happened, and was made even less likely by the wonderfully uplifting cover featured in Love Actually. Now, just in case there are those younglings who haven’t quite taken up the tradition, the song is set to inspire its own CGI animated feature from Universal.

With Carey on board as an executive producer, and the plot focusing on a young girl who desires her own puppy, you can look for it this holiday season on DVD from Universal 1440 Entertainment. Being familiar with the lyrics, they may just need to change a few ‘baby’s to ‘puppy’s.

Dragon's Gate - Awesome Sleeping Beauty Inspired Art

Artist Guy Vasilovich created this stunning piece of art inspired by Disney's Sleeping Beauty. It's called Dragon's Gate and it features the heroic prince coming face to face with the evil dragon Maleficent. This scene was pretty terrifying seeing as a kid, and in my opinion it's one of the best dragon designs ever created for film. Here's a note from the artist:

"As an ardent fan of Disney’s Sleeping Beauty, particularly the dragon sequence, I was drawn to the design concept of the small wings in scale to the dragon. That characteristic rendered Maleficent flightless even with all of her magic.Asking myself, “What if…?”, prompted me to to explore the battle from an aerodynamic attack by the dragon, thus the larger wings.I purposely omitted the three fairy godmothers to help give the scene an “impossible situation” look and feel."Thanks to Acme Limited!
