Disney Animation Studios has hired four directors, two new and two returning, to create some new original content for the company. Returning are Josie Trinidad, who has previously worked on the art and stories for The Princess and the Frog, Tangled, Wreck-It Ralph and its sequel, and Zootopia; and Marc Smith, who did animation for Hercules, Tarzan, Fantasia 2000, The Emperor’s New Groove, Chicken Little, Tangled, Big Hero 6, and Zootopia.

Moana Sequel Reportedly In Development At Disney

Moana was a huge hit for Disney back in 2016. Led by the voice talents of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and newcomer Auli’i Cravalho, the animated film wowed audiences with its powerful musical numbers, stellar animation and potent storyline. The critically-acclaimed movie went on to gross over $643 million worldwide and secure two Academy Award nominations. Given the flick’s massive success, it’s a bit of a surprise that fans haven’t been treated to a sequel already.

Now, however, nearly four years after the original, the studio is reportedly in the process of developing a follow-up to the beloved classic. Details are scarce as of right now, but sources close to Wgtc – the same ones who told us the Mouse House was doing an Aladdin sequel before it was later confirmed – tell us that it’s definitely in the works and it’s presumed that both Cravalho and The Rock

China’s Animated Movie ‘Nezha’ Scored $674 Million, but Is It a Fluke?

  • Variety
The tale of a young folk deity who flies around on wheels of fire has defied audience and industry expectations about the commercial potential of animation in China to become the country’s second-highest-grossing film of all time. “Nezha” has earned $674 million (Rmb 4.81 billion) since its July 26 release, putting it behind only 2017’s nationalist actioner “Wolf Warrior II” at the box office and making it the most successful animated title ever in the Middle Kingdom, far beyond the previous record-holder, Disney’s “Zootopia,” which reaped $236 million.

Its astonishing success has raised hopes for China’s growing but still immature animation sector. While animated titles consistently account for 10% to 15% of the box office in the U.S. and about 40% in Japan, the figure is estimated at only about 6% to 10% in China. “Nezha” has also set a welcome new standard for quality in local animation in a land where the genre is

Gerard Butler’s ‘Angel Has Fallen’ Rises to $1.5 Million at Thursday Box Office

Gerard Butler’s ‘Angel Has Fallen’ Rises to $1.5 Million at Thursday Box Office
Angel Has Fallen,” the action sequel starring Gerard Butler and Morgan Freeman, earned $1.5 million at the box office Thursday from preview screenings at 2,600 locations. It opens on 3,286 screens this weekend.

Lionsgate is releasing “Angel Has Fallen” following up from the success of both “Olympus Has Fallen” in 2013 and “London Has Fallen” in 2016. It’s the widest release this weekend as the summer comes to a close, with Fox Searchlight’s horror and thriller “Ready or Not” having already opened on Wednesday.

The studio is projecting “Angel” to open in the low to mid teen range this weekend, with independent trackers estimating approximately $13 million. For a comparison, “London Has Fallen” earned only $850,000 in its debut opposite a then record-setting weekend for Disney’s “Zootopia,” but it ultimately raked in a $21.6 million opening. The original “Olympus Has Fallen” opened to $30.3 million and grossed $170.2 million worldwide.
