Dolphins Trailer


For their latest endeavour, Disney Nature take us on a journey into the deep blue sea to swim alongside some of nature's most majestic creatures. Mankind has long had a connection with Dolphins, they're constantly depicted as riding the waves whenever a movie has a scene on the open ocean and it's a very accurate representation, perhaps to their detriment, they seem far from shy.

Their good nature is constantly on display, there are many tales of surfers / swinners being saved from savage shark attacks by their tailed companions of the deep. Their intelligence is known to be vast, yet we still know relatively little about them; we do know that Dolphins are incredibly social mammals, they stick together in pods for protection and increased hunting capabilities.

Echo is a young dolphin and he plays a pivotal role in this movie; viewers follow him as he tries to find his own place within his pod and the ocean in general.

Disney is being sued by a screenwriter who claims the company stole his idea for the Oscar-winning animated film Zootopia.

Gary L. Goldman, who wrote 1990 sci-fi flick Total Recall and executive produced Minority Report, claims in a lawsuit that Disney’s Zootopia is “substantially similar” to a project he once pitched with the same title.

Bigots Are Going Out Of Their Way To Ban 'Beauty And The Beast'


Disney Bill Condon Josh Gad

The revelation that the upcoming live action version of 'Beauty and the Beast' will feature Disney's first gay character has caused predictable controversy, with one Alabama drive-in even going as far as banning screenings of the film and Russia has also been called to boycott the movie.

'Beauty and the Beast'People are really angry about 'Beauty and the Beast' news

A small drive-in in Henagar, Alabama are refusing to show the forthcoming blockbuster starring Emma Watson, Luke Evans and Dan Stevens simply because director Bill Condon recently cited that Gaston's sidekick LeFou (played by Josh Gad) was openly gay with feelings for his master. We doubt this will make a significant dint in the film's profits.

'Beauty And The Beast' The First Disney Movie To Represent The LGBT Community


Disney Josh Gad Bill Condon

In a move that will no doubt thrill LGBT people around the world, 'Beauty and the Beast' is to become the first film in Disney history to feature an 'exclusively gay moment'. With Emma Watson also bringing an emphasis on feminism to the role, it could be the company's most diverse role yet. 

Beauty and the BeastJosh Gad and Luke Evans star in 'Beauty and the Beast'

In the past, Disney was considered a prejudiced enterprise on many counts, but now they are embracing diversity by bringing same-sex romance into their upcoming live action adaptation of 1991 animation 'Beauty and the Beast'. It centres around LeFou, played by Josh Gad, and his feelings for his slick master Gaston who is portrayed by Luke Evans.

Disney Pixar Vs. Dreamworks: The Best Animation Soundtracks


Disney

It's often said that a good soundtrack makes the movie, and in the case of animated features that's often true. Hans Zimmer and Randy Newman are staples of the Dreamworks and Pixar music world respectively for their influential film scores - but that doesn't mean to say they are also better than soundtrack song selections.

10 Most Loveable Disney Sidekicks: Olaf, Sebastian And More


Disney

Disney and Pixar have had some of the most inventive and adorable characters ever seen in film, and it's difficult to choose the most memorable. It's the kooky little sidekicks and protective companions that make the films so popular, and in some cases are the reason for their continued success. 

Here are ten of our favourite Disney side characters:

1. Olaf ('Frozen') - Now the name of every child's snowman, this quirky little fella came to life with Elsa's power and his optimism is infectious. He loves the idea of summer and warmth, and even risked melting just to protect Anna because 'Some people are worth melting for'.
