2013 Disney Movie Preview

I can’t believe that it’s almost a brand new year! I have found some new Disney favorites this year, including Brave, Frankenweenie, and of course, Wreck-It Ralph, and I’m so excited for the movies 2013 has to bring!

Oz The Great and Powerful: There are very few movies that I’ve ever been so excited for as Oz The Great and Powerful! I love all things Oz & have been obsessed since I was a kid, so I am on pins & needles waiting for this movie to come out! It stars Mila Kunis, James Franco, Michelle Williams, Zach Braff and Rachel Weisz- with a cast that strong, you know it’s going to be good!

About the movie:

Disney’s fantastical adventure “Oz The Great and Powerful,” directed by Sam Raimi, imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum’s beloved character, the Wizard of Oz. When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he’s hit the jackpot—fame and fortune are his for the taking—that is until he meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone’s been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity—and even a bit of wizardry—Oscar transforms himself not only into the great and powerful Wizard of Oz but into a better man as well.

Oz The Great and Powerful comes out March 8. In the meantime, you can follow the film on Facebook and Twitter for updates!

monsters university

Monsters University: Monsters, Inc. is one of my favorite movies- I’ve seen it a million times & I haven’t gotten sick of it. It comes back to theaters in 3D this December 19th {tickets are on sale now!} but in 2013 we’ll see how Mike & Sully met in Monsters University!

About the movie:

Mike Wazowski and James P. Sullivan are an inseparable pair, but that wasn’t always the case. From the moment these two mismatched monsters met they couldn’t stand each other. “Monsters University” unlocks the door to how Mike and Sulley overcame their differences and became the best of friends.

Screaming with laughter and fun, “Monsters University” is directed by Dan Scanlon (“Cars,” “Mater and the Ghostlight,” “Tracy”) and produced by Kori Rae (“Up,” “The Incredibles,” “Monsters, Inc.”). The film opens in U.S. theaters on June 21, 2013, and will be shown in Disney Digital 3D™ in select theaters.

Monsters University comes to theaters on June 21, 2013! You can follow along on Facebook for more updates!


Frozen: When I toured Disney Animation Studios on the Wreck-It Ralph press day, I was treated to a sneak peek of Disney’s 53rd Full-Length Animated Feature, Frozen! I didn’t see any footage, but I saw some of the inspiration as well as some concept art {which I can’t discuss but is gorgeous} and learned that Kristen Bell, who I adore, and Idina Menzel {who was in Glee & Enchanted- one of my favorite shows, and movies, ever} will be the voices of Anna & Elsa!

About the movie:

Featuring the voices of Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel, “Frozen” is the coolest comedy-adventure ever to hit the big screen. When a prophecy traps a kingdom in eternal winter, Anna, a fearless optimist, teams up with extreme mountain man Kristoff and his sidekick reindeer Sven on an epic journey to find Anna’s sister Elsa, the Snow Queen, and put an end to her icy spell. Encountering mystical trolls, a funny snowman named Olaf, Everest-like extremes and magic at every turn, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom from destruction.

Jennifer Lee, who was one of the screenplay writers for Wreck-It Ralph, has just been announced as one of the Directors {along with Chris Buck}, and she also contributed to the screenplay, so I have high hopes that this movie will be great for the whole family.

Frozen hits theaters on November 27, 2013, and you can like the movie on Facebook to keep up with news!


The Lone Ranger: Johnny Depp. Enough said.

About the movie:

From producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Gore Verbinski, the filmmaking team behind the blockbuster “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise, comes Disney/Jerry Bruckheimer Films’ “The Lone Ranger,” a thrilling adventure infused with action and humor, in which the famed masked hero is brought to life through new eyes.  Native American spirit warrior Tonto (Johnny Depp) recounts the untold tales that transformed John Reid (Armie Hammer), a man of the law, into a legend of justice—taking the audience on a runaway train of epic surprises and humorous friction as the two unlikely heroes must learn to work together and fight against greed and corruption.

The Lone Ranger comes out on July 3, 2013- you can find the movie on Facebook & Twitter!

Saving Mr. Banks: This is a movie that any Disney freak {like myself} will be excited for! It’s about the man behind the mouse and his twenty-year pursuit of the film rights to Mary Poppins! As someone who grew up watching Disney’s Mary Poppins all the time {Chim chim cher-ee!} I can’t wait to find out the story behind it!

About the movie:

Two-time Academy Award®–winner Emma Thompson and fellow double Oscar®-winner Tom Hanks topline Disney’s “Saving Mr. Banks,” inspired by the extraordinary, untold backstory of how Disney’s classic “Mary Poppins” made it to the screen.

When Walt Disney’s daughters begged him to make a movie of their favorite book, P.L. Travers’ “Mary Poppins,” he made them a promise—one that he didn’t realize would take 20 years to keep. In his quest to obtain the rights, Walt comes up against a curmudgeonly, uncompromising writer who has absolutely no intention of letting her beloved magical nanny get mauled by the Hollywood machine. But, as the books stop selling and money grows short, Travers reluctantly agrees to go to Los Angeles to hear Disney’s plans for the adaptation.

For those two short weeks in 1961, Walt Disney pulls out all the stops. Armed with imaginative storyboards and chirpy songs from the talented Sherman brothers, Walt launches an all-out onslaught on P.L. Travers, but the prickly author doesn’t budge.  He soon begins to watch helplessly as Travers becomes increasingly immovable and the rights begin to move further away from his grasp.

It is only when he reaches into his own childhood that Walt discovers the truth about the ghosts that haunt her, and together they set Mary Poppins free to ultimately make one of the most endearing films in cinematic history.

Saving Mr. Banks will be out just in time for Christmas next year, on December 20, 2013.

These movies are all so different but every one of them looks amazing! Which one are you the most excited for?
