Encanto Looks Pretty Magical

The next Disney animated movie is Encanto, a story about a magical house and the magical family that lives inside — if by “magical” we mean they each have a super-power. But hey, lots of people get their super powers through magic, so who am I to judge? Check out the first full trailer.

Looks pretty great to me! Wonderful animation, some good humor, lots of impressive visuals. This should be another Disney animated treat!

Encanto comes to theaters on Nov. 24.

Hawkeye Show Coming in November!

Entertainment Weekly put out a nice article yesterday revealing that the Hawkeye TV show will come out on Disney+ on Nov. 24, just in time for families to get together and discuss the first episode on Thanksgiving! And check out this first official image.

That’s Jeremy Renner and Hailee Steinfeld as Clint Barton and Kate Bishop. We know various things about this show and all of them sound good. We’re going to get shades of the Trenchcoat Mafia. There’s rumors of some other characters showing up that I don’t want to spoil here. It’s basically sounding like a really solid show.

Hawkeye will be six episodes and that will take us through the end of the year. Likely that means Ms. Marvel will debut sometime in January, because Marvel doesn’t want to overlap shows. And all of that sounds good to me!

Pixar is Gonna Do Another One With Turning Red

Pixar has been hot and cold for me over the past few years. I didn’t care for Soul. I loved Luca. Suffice to say, they are in a different mode these days than their all-time classics. So let’s see how they do next year with Turning Red.

Looks fine to me! A young girl dealing with anxiety turns into a giant red panda, Incredible Hulk style. Sounds like a solid metaphor for puberty and whatnot.

Turning Red is scheduled to arrive in theaters in March 2022.

Here Comes the Next Disney Animated Movie

Tonight I’m going to see a new Disney marvel superhero movie! Got my ticket for Black Widow already! But also today, we’ve got the first teaser trailer for Encanto, the next Disney animated movie. Looks pretty fun.

I’m very much enjoying most Disney animated movies these days. A lot more than Pixar movies. So here’s hoping! And this one also appears to be about superheroes? That’s always fun.

Encanto comes out in November.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Tonight! WandaVision Now!

The first episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is now available on Disney+! I’ve heard good things. The critic reviews are very positive. I can’t wait to watch later tonight after work! Until then, how about the Honest Trailer for WandaVision? I told you these nifty online parodies were coming!

Good stuff! I also plan to watch Zack Snyder’s Justice League this weekend! I may or may not do a List of Six on my thoughts on the movie. As I recall, I enjoyed the Joss Whedon Justice League when I saw it in theaters…though I have no interest in it now.
