We are most excited about this new Broadway adventure. Disney is bringing us Aladdin on Broadway. Set to open on Broadway in 2014, the new musical comedy is sure to delight viewers of all ages. Aladdin is set to begin shows in Toronto this November with previews beginning in early 2014.
The complete cast, along with our Jasmine and Aladdin, have been announced.
Following the news that Pixar would not be able to release any new movies in 2014, it was also announced that the highly anticipated animated movie The Good Dinosaur would be pushed back to 2015. To make up for this, it was just announced that Maleficent would be taking over the release date. Fans can now look forward to seeing Maleficent in theaters on May 30, 2014 as opposed to July 2, 2014.
In the most exciting Broadway news I’ve heard in a long time, Disney’s Aladdin has an opening date. Aladdin will begin shows in Toronto in November of this year before beginning previews in early 2014 for Broadway.
It was just announced that Justin Marks will be penning the new adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book. The Disney animated version was made famous in 1967 and followed the character of Mowgli, based on the short stories published back in 1894. There have already been several adaptations of The Jungle Book released already, why is another one being produced? Are all of these reboots really necessary? Can’t we get some original ideas from the studios?
Walt Disney Animation Studios presents Frozen. The studio behind past hits like Wreck-It Ralph and Tangled have begun promoting the big screen animated comedy. The movie will feature the voice talents of Kristen Bell, Jonathan Groff, and Idina Menzel. While not quite what I was expecting, the kids will love this one. The animation already reminds me of movies like Ice Age and Tangled. Those were both huge hits.
The movie is expected to hit theaters this Winter with a release date of November 27th.
