Spider-Man, Spicer and Splashy First-Looks: Everything We’re Looking For at D23

  • Variety
As if Disney hasn’t owned enough weekends this year at the box office, the biennial D23 Expo will light up Anaheim, Calif. over the next three days to celebrate the content monolith.

From a new Netflix-competing streaming platform to scores of movie and series reveals — along with a few hot controversies to confront — plenty of news will be spilling out of the massive convention center dressed in mouse ears, superhero capes and stormtrooper garb.

One bullet already dodged — an early Friday panel surrounding “Dancing With the Stars,” which airs on Disney-owned ABC. In the days leading up to D23’s kickoff, social media snowballed with backlash against ABC’s decision to cast former White House press secretary Sean Spicer on its latest season. While Spicer’s inclusion could well provide a short-term ratings fix for the declining dancing show, the amount of negative press and allegations of political

  • The Wrap
Nickelodeon is getting dark.

The kids network released the first teaser for its upcoming revival of the classic ’90s series “Are You Afraid of the Dark,” and the new version looks a fright more more sinister than the original. The teaser, which you can watch above, shows a new batch of kids gathered around a campfire, submitting fresh scary stories for the approval of the Midnight Society.

The trailer features ominous music and more soundbites of screaming than we ever expected to hear on the channel that brought us “Spongebob,” “Zoey 101,” and almost every other beloved kids show. Then it asks the time-worn question anew: “Are you afraid of the dark?”

Josh Gad to lead ‘Honey I Shrunk The Kids’ legacy sequel

Josh Gad has been lined up to take the lead in the ‘Honey I Shrunk the Kids’ legacy sequel, ‘Shrunk’ for Disney Studios.

The film is said to be set three decades after the original films in which Rick Moranis played scientist and inventor Wayne Szalinski, the man responsible for the child-shrinking machine.

Gad will play the grown-up son of Moranis’s Szalinski, Adam who then follows in his father footsteps and shrinks his own kids. The new project will reportedly be set in the same universe as the original movies albeit three decades later.

Honey, I Shrunk The Kids Reboot In The Works With Josh Gad

Gad damnit, our Disney overlords will leave no stone unturned, no matter how unnaturally small they may be. Yep, that’s right, Honey, I Shrunk The Kids is getting the reboot treatment, with everyone’s favorite obnoxious snowman, Josh Gad, set to star! While only independently confirmed by a writer at /Film at the moment, this possibility was listed among many potential reboots to be made for Disney Plus, the new streaming service you’ll be forced to buy at some point.

In a twist, this project seems destined for a wide distribution theatrical release, not a simple streaming-only debut. On top of that, it’s simply going to be called Shrunk. Also, it doesn’t seem to be a full reboot. Well, not exactly anyway. It’s currently being called a “legacyquel,” which is, uh, a word I have not heard before.

Indiana Jones 5 Is Still Coming in 2021 Confirms Disney

Indiana Jones 5 is still on track to make its 2021 release date. Disney confirmed the news in its latest production slate earlier this week. The news comes after strong rumors that This is Us creator Dan Fogelman has taken over for Jonathan Kasdan to rewrite the script after he had taken over for David Koepp (Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull). Fans were not excited to hear the news, but it appears there is nothing to worry about at this time.

Steven Spielberg will helm Indiana Jones 5 and it is set to star Harrison Ford, who is looking forward to the opportunity to take on the role again. The movie was first announced back in 2016 and it has been a slow moving development process since then. Spielberg is currently working on his remake of West Side Story, which hits theaters at the end of next year, so there

Disney Announces 63 Movie Release Dates Through 2027

Disney just announced a batch of new release dates for movies up through 2027. That's not to say they have their full release calendar planned up through then, but the next few years are pretty well set in stone and it's clear, with the purchase of Fox officially done, that few other studios stand a chance against the Mouse House's onslaught of blockbusters, franchise flicks and otherwise appealing crowd-pleasers. This includes release dates for 3 new Star Wars movies, all four of James Cameron's Avatar sequels, The New Mutants and much more.

Following the dramatic success of Avengers: Endgame thus far, The Walt Disney Studios' 2019 summer slate includes Guy Ritchie's Aladdin on May 24, Dark Phoenix, the last of the proper Fox X-Men movies, on June 7, Pixar's Toy Story 4 on June 21, Stuber, a buddy cop comedy from Fox, on July 12 and Jon Favreau's The Lion King on July 19.

‘Gambit’ and Three More Untitled Fox/Marvel Films Removed From Disney Slate

Amid a slew of release slate announcements, Disney removed four Fox/Marvel projects from its list of upcoming films, including a planned “X-Men” spinoff, “Gambit,” starring Channing Tatum.

The slate removal signals the end of 20 years of Fox films based around the “X-Men,” dating back to the original 2000 blockbuster that made Hugh Jackman into a star with his performance as Wolverine. 12 films in the franchise have been released, including the Oscar-nominated “Logan” and the “Deadpool” spinoff films. The series will conclude with the already-produced horror spinoff “The New Mutants,” which Disney moved from August 2019 to April 2020.

Disney Announces Release Dates For 3 New Star Wars Films, Avatar Sequels, and The New Mutants

Disney has revealed a bunch of new release dates for several upcoming movies that include three new Star Wars films, James Cameron’s Avatar sequels, The New Mutants, and More.

Starting in December 2022, Star Wars will return to the big screen with a new untitled film. This will be the first Star Wars film to be released after Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is released. After that the two other Star Wars films will be released every other December, so they are really going to space out the release of these movies! The second film will come in 2024 and the third 2026. It’s a smart move with the backlash that the franchise has been getting from some fans, but at the same time, as a Star Wars fan, I kinda wish we’d be getting more.

As part of a huge release slate announcement, Disney announced that “The New Mutants” and “Artemis Fowl” are being moved from their August 2019 release dates to 2020.

This is the third time that “The New Mutants” has had its release date moved. The film was originally set for an April 2018 release, but was moved to February 2019 and again to August 2019. This was done in part to allow for reshoots to make the horror superhero film more frightening.
