'Finding Dory' Smashes Weekend Box Office Figures With Record Opening


Disney Ellen Degeneres

Not unexpectedly, 'Finding Dory' has made not so much a splash at the weekend box office (June 17th 2016), but more a humongous tidal wave. The Disney Pixar animation has broken the record for the highest grossing animated debut in history. The 2018 release of 'Toy Story 4' has got a lot to live up to.

Finding DoryFinding Dory blows other animations out of the water

'Finding Dory' has followed the success of its predecessor by becoming the biggest opening for an animated film ever, bringing in $136.2 million domestically and beating 2007's 'Shrek the Third' (a Dreamworks feature) which had a $121.6 million debut.

'Finding Dory': An Emotional Journey And The Reason Sequels Get Made


Ellen Degeneres Disney

'Finding Dory' finally arrives in cinemas and it appears that this long awaited sequel to the much-adored 'Finding Nemo' was totally worth the wait - for fans of the original at least. Critics can't get enough of the overwhelming emotion of the movie, nor of its resonance in the world of childhood disability.

Finding Dory'Finding Dory' is probably the best sequel of the year

For every critic who's dismissing 'Finding Dory' as unoriginal, another one is exalting it for its sensitivity and relevance; suitably adapted for this decade but still remaining inescapably familiar after 13 years. 'It's like meeting up with an old friend and realizing that somehow, in spite of all the years and distance, no time has passed at all', Consequence Of Sound wrote.

'Moana' And Seven More Upcoming Disney Pixar Flicks


Disney Dwayne Johnson

It seems that Disney has largely been focusing on re-booting the classics in live action, so it's been a little quite on the Pixar animation front. Of course, 'Finding Dory' is coming this summer and we've just received the first taster of 'Moana', but what else have Pixar fans got to look forward to?

Look no further. The schedule for Disney Pixar isn't what you'd call extensive, but aside from untitled projects (two of which are thought to be based on Delilah Dirk and Mickey Mouse, respectively) there's a lot of sequels to get stuck into.

Twitter Campaign To #GiveElsaAGirlfriend In 'Frozen' Sequel Goes Viral


Idina Menzel Disney

A Twitter campaign to persuade Disney to give Princess Elsa a girlfriend in the upcoming sequel to Frozen has gone viral.

The petition, with the hashtag #GiveElsaAGirlfriend, is aiming to make Princess Elsa the first LGBT Disney princess in the studio’s history.

After all, the narrative arc of Princess Elsa in the first Frozen movie was of a journey to acceptance of her powers, summed up by her empowering number ‘Let It Go’, and it was widely interpreted as a metaphor for coming out. So, the new campaign is aiming to put that subtext into plain view in the sequel by giving the character a female love interest.

Disney Emma Watson Chloe Moretz

So 'The Jungle Book' appears to be getting good critical reception all round; and no wonder with its stunning combination of live action and CGI, not to mention a stellar voiceover cast. It's only the latest in a string of Disney Classics to be re-made though, as that beloved world is being continuously re-visited.

As well as 'The Jungle Book', so far we've had 'Snow White and the Huntsman', 'Maleficent', 'Cinderella', 'Hercules', 'Alice In Wonderland'... need we go on?
