Disney’s Strange World Gets a Plot

The next Disney animated film, Strange World, ha snow got a bigger trailer and has revealed the actual plot of the film. It all looks good to me. Disney animated films have been on fire for years. Encanto was awesome. So my hopes are high for Strange World, even if it isn’t a musical.

Once again, Disney is going for a story about generational trauma, which is fine by me. If they’ve got a good story then go for it. Mostly the movie looks like they just let animators go full weird, as weird as they wanted. By all means, that should be fun.

Strange World comes to theaters on Nov. 23.

Pinnochio Live Action Trailer

Man, what a Monday. No good movies are coming out anytime soon. I gotta go to work in a bit, when all I wanna do is stay home and play more Total War: Warhammer 3. They released Immortal Empires, you guys! Anyway, the Pinnochio live action movie from Disney dropped a trailer.

And it looks kinda bland. Disney live action movies no longer excite me, if they ever did. And this one looks like a pretty clear 1-for-1 remake of Pinnochio. It’s coming to Disney+ next week, so we can all watch it then. But we’re all probably better off waiting for Guillermo del Toro’s stop-motion animation Pinnochio movie in December.

Because of course there are two competing PInnochio movies coming out now.

Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur is Going to Be a Thing!

There’s going to be a Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur cartoon! Neat! Apparently Lawrence Fishburne is producing, which bully for him. He decided to give us a first look at some of the animation last week.

I never read the Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur cartoon, so I don’t know what to expect. But I’m all for new Marvel projects! Especially if it’s going to be a cool, stand alone piece with a lot of creativity put into it. The show is coming to the Disney Channel next year. Let’s hope it’s good!

6 Thoughts on Obi-Wan Kenobi (Review)

I wasn’t as super-hyped about the Obi-Wan Kenobi TV show as other Star Wars fans seemed to be. I was just never a big Obi-Wan fan in general. But I still love Star Wars and I’m going to watch whatever shows they put out. More power to them. Now that Obi-Wan has come and gone, I felt it was all just generally fine. Nothing particularly special, as far as I’m concerned.

TV Show Rating: 7/10 – Good

In the end, I feel like Obi-Wan Kenobi was just a simple, straight forward adventure that this hermit Jedi gets to go on. It doesn’t really alter anything we know about the character or the era of the Star Wars timeline. I actually think it adds some unneeded complications that will need smoothing over in all our minds. But I was never bored, and there were definitely some cool moments. It’s definitely not a bad show. I just don’t think it was anything special.

Join me after the jump for my review and all my thoughts on the first(?) season of Obi-Wan Kenobi.

A Metric Ton of Upcoming Movie Trailers!

Between my being on vacation last week and a bunch of big movies coming out, we’ve been getting a metric ton of new movie trailers recently. I love movie trailers and I love sharing them. I’ve already shared a couple this week with stand alone posts, because I thought they deserved it. But these are the ones I’ve been sitting on, and they’re taking up too much room on my bookmarks bar. So let’s just get them out of the way!

I will post them in descending order from my interest.

First up is a new trailer for NOPE, Jordan Peele’s new horror movie. Be warned, this might have more spoilers than you might normally like in such a trailer.

I’m definitely excited for this one. Jordan Peele is making some great movies, and this one looks especially spooky and wild. I’m always down for a new take on mysterious alien appearances in the sky. NOPE comes to theaters on July 22.


Next up is Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe. This one should be great!

I was slow to get into the Beavis and Butt-Head cartoon back in the day because I definitely wasn’t an MTV teenager. But I loved what I saw, and especially loved their original Do America movie. So with Mike Judge coming back and the duo not being overdone in recent years, I think Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe could be really neat! It’s coming to Paramount+ on June 23.


How about a new movie in the Predator series? How about Prey?

I like the look of this one as well! I’m no big Predator fanatic, and most of the ones I’ve seen have been terrible. But I’m totally down for the idea of a back-to-basics Predator movie where those alien hunters take on some Comanche Native Americans. That idea has a ton of potential. And we’ll see how much potential when Prey comes to Hulu on Aug. 5.


Next we have a new trailer for Bullet Train, the really cool looking Brad Pitt movie coming out this summer. This trailer also reveals a lot more about the plot and characters, so be careful if you’re trying to avoid all spoilers.

Bullet Train looks like somebody watched Knives Out and decided to make their own version, and I am 100% in favor of that. Knives Out was a masterpiece, and more movies could use that type of energy. Brad Pitt going nuts on a train full of charismatic assassins sounds perfect to me. I’m definitely excited for this one. Bullet Train comes to theaters on Aug. 5!


Let’s keep it going! Next up is Strange World, the teaser for the next Disney animated movie.

I think Disney Animation is knocking it out of the park these days. I think I like their movies more than Pixar. So I’m definitely going to get my hopes up for Strange World. The movie definitely shows us a pretty strange world. We’ll find out what they do with it in theaters on Nov. 23.

Oof. I’m already getting tired. So let’s just rush through the last couple of trailers I still have. We’ve got Three Thousand Years of Longing, Beast and Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning: Part 1.

All look pretty cool. I’m especially excited to see Three Thousand Years of Longing, the new George Miller film that will be his follow-up to Mad Max: Fury Road. Can we deliver that same insane magic? I bet he can!

So yeah, it’s safe to say that movies are back and we’ve got so many to look forward to! More of these trailers are original properties than not. And none are Marvel movies. So it’s also safe to say that non-superhero movies are allowed to exist!
