Is Goofy a Dog?

Is Goofy a dog? That has been the question many Disney fans have been asking since 1932 when the character was first created and introduced. Luckily Bill Farmer has some insight into this mystery since he has been voicing both Goofy and Pluto for over 30 years now. Farmer has his own opinion on the matter, which he shared in a recent interview that spanned a number of topics, including why A Goofy Movie is still so incredibly popular.

When Goofy was introduced, he was known as Dippy Dawg and then Goofy. However, he has gone under a number of names over the years. George G. Geef was also used in the early cartoons and recent comics have even called him Goofus D. Dawg. But is he really a dog? Bill Farmer had this to say when asked about the mystery in a new interview.

Scooby Doo….where are you? Everyone knows the name of animated Hannah-Barbara four-legged canine character as well as the rest of his human companions (i.e. Scooby gang) in their various adventures throughout the years. Created back 1969 by Joe Ruby and Ken Spears, the original incarnation came from the cartoon TV show Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!

Ryan Reynolds in talks for Netflix’s Dragon’s Lair film adaptation

Ryan Reynolds is looking to keep his relationship with Netflix going past 6 Underground and the upcoming Red Notice as he has entered talks to star in and produce the streaming service’s upcoming live-action film adaptation of the classic arcade game Dragon’s Lair. (Via Variety)

An adaptation of the classic game has been in the works for nearly 40 years now, with Alan Dean Foster working on the first attempt that eventually fell apart due to low interest from studios and a second attempt being made in 2015 and ’16 when co-creator Don Bluth and Gary Goldman created an Indiegogo campaign for a teaser to ge...

Space Jam 2 Delayed Again

The coranavirus outbreak in the United States has already led to a barrage of movies getting delayed – and Space Jam 2 could be next. Space Jam 2 had been stuck in development hell for over two decades before it finally got moving last year, with those obstacles dating back to an early version of Space Jam 2 commissioned directly after the original Space Jam‘s 1996 release. That iteration of Space Jam 2 died once Michael Jordan refused to join the project. Other versions of Space Jam 2, including one titled Skate Jam which would’ve starred Tony Hawk, similarly went nowhere.

However, Space Jam 2 got brought back to life once legend LeBron James signed on to star on as himself in the lead role...

Onward Wins Box Office

Onward Wins Box Office.  Pixar’s Onward won the weekend box office with a $40 million debut. The domestic numbers for the animated movie are in the lower realm of the early estimates, which had it around $45 million. Reasoning behind the muted response is unclear, but there are many people who believe the coronavirus (COVID-19) is to blame. As for the global numbers, those aren’t too stellar either. Onward has made $68 million from 47 territories as of this writing, despite getting positive reviews.

Blumhouse’s The Invisible Man continues to be a hit at the box office. The horror thriller took the second position this weekend after earning $15.1 million. The movie has earned nearly $100 million globally since hitting theaters last week. Ben Affleck‘s The Way Back debuted at number three w...

Frozen II

Can you believe it has been six years since the original Frozen hit theaters? Sure we remember all the words to “Let it Go” like we heard it yesterday… and I’d bet some of us literally did with the holiday season simmering in. The animated musical is now a bona fide modern classic, one of Disney’s biggest hits and became a swift cultural phenomenon when it blew into cinemas back in 2013. But with Frozen II coming out this weekend, you might be in need of a recap!

There’s more to the Frozen story then you likely remember. Disney+ subscribers certainly have the option to log on to the fresh streaming site and give it a rewatch before heading out to see the highly-anticipated sequel (a free seven-day trial deal is still being offered)...

The Sonic The Hedgehog Movie

The Sonic The Hedgehog Movie

It’s certainly easier to anger fans than to please them, so pencil in a minor victory for the Sonic the Hedgehog movie. The victory isn’t coming through official channels, but instead through a photo of a movie standee featuring the rumored Sonic redesign.

A photo of said standee has been making the rounds, and most fans seem pretty happy with it — so if this isn’t what Sonic planned to stick with long-term … maybe it should be?

Here’s another look at it, if it helps:

No clue why this standee is randomly hanging out in a hallway. I also have no idea how official or final this is, but it does seem to be making fans happy.

A lot of fans are just glad — and shocked, frankly — that a studio actually listened to them. If the Sonic movie does ...

Abominable

DreamWorks Animation made its feature debut with a famous attempt at scooping its competition: The studio’s animated comedy about ants (Antz) beat Disney and Pixar’s animated comedy about ants (A Bug’s Life) to theaters by six weeks. This was followed by other selected instances of supposed parallel thinking (Shark Tale and Finding Nemo; Megamind and Despicable Me), so it’s not shocking that with Abominable, DreamWorks has produced one of three different yeti-centric feature cartoons. But it is a bit of a surprise to see DreamWorks trailing the others so substantially, releasing its round, smooth-nosed creature into the wild a year after Smallfoot and six months after Missing Link. It’s also surprising that Abominable feels like ...

Warning: major Toy Story 4 SPOILERS ahead!

As was expected given the series’ track record, the ending of this summer’s Toy Story 4 was bittersweet in every sense of the word, leaving audience members emotionally wrecked after saying goodbye to these beloved characters for perhaps the final time. But if you thought the theatrical ending to the Pixar film was rough, Toy Story 4’s alternate ending might be even more heartbreaking.

Toy Story 4 doesn’t hit digital and home video until October, but Entertainment Weekly has an early look at one of the bonus features, which include an alternate ending for the film...

Batman Beyond

Batman Beyond

For any Batman fan of a certain age, Terry McGinnis is as true a Dark Knight as the best of them—and the best has always been Bruce Wayne. This is in no small part thanks to Will Friedle’s dryly counterintuitive performance as a teenage superhero. In different hands, it could be as irreverent as Peter Parker, but Friedle acutely underplays the youthfulness, which brings out something darker and harder even even when he’s being “schway.” Yet the casting of Friedle in the star role of Batman Beyond had everything to do the actor’s other beloved millennial touchstone role… as the idiot savant Eric Matthews on Boy Meets World.

This was one of several amusing surprises at this past weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con where Batman Beyond marked its 20th anniversary...

The Little Mermaid

The Little Mermaid is one of Disney’s most popular animated films ever. It’s the movie that launched the Disney Renaissance and brought Walt Disney Animation Studios back from the brink of closure.

It’s also one of the next films to receive the Disney live-action remake treatment, with the role of Ariel being recently announced as going to young actress and singer Halle Bailey. This is a movie that a lot of people will be feeling passionately about, largely because the animated original means a lot to them, but it was almost a very different movie

The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Neil Gaiman’s Sandman comics have found their next attempt at a live-action venture, with streaming service Netflix picking up the option to the series for an adaptation. Wonder Woman co-writer Allan Heinberg will serve as showrunner with both Neil Gaiman and David Goyer executive producing.

THR notes that the series comes with a “massive financial commitment” from both DC Entertainment and Netflix, with the streaming service always eager for the next big thing in television.

Those fans hoping to see Red Sonja on the big screen sans Bryan Singer can breathe a sigh of relief: the movie is back on track and has a new writer and director in Jill Soloway, the Emmy Award-winning creator of hit Amazon TV series Transparent. The news comes from Deadline, which reports that Soloway is bringing a “bold new take” to the character first introduced in Marvel’s Conan the Barbarian comic in 1973.

“I can’t wait to bring Red Sonja’s epic world to life,” Soloway told Deadline. “Exploring this powerful mythology and evolving what it means to be a heroine is an artistic dream come true.”

Casting has begun for a new Red Sonja, according to Deadline, and Soloway’s Topple Productions partner, Andrea Serling, has also joined the project as a producer...

The Secret Life Of Pets 2 Max and Duke and child eat from bowls

We’ve been on a bit of a blockbuster high the last few weeks, particularly thanks to the insane performance by Joe and Anthony Russo’s Avengers: Endgame – which is getting closer everyday towards becoming the biggest movie of all time. Unfortunately, though, that particular film fever is coming down now, and helped us once again acknowledge something we’ve now recognized for months: 2019 is really disappointing at the box office. This weekend is a perfect example, as what should have been an absolutely massive three days – featuring the launch of both a new X-Men movie and Illumination Entertainment title – we instead just got… blah.

Baby Shark

If you haven’t heard of “Baby Shark,” chances are you probably don’t spend a lot of time with children, because as almost anyone with young ones can attest, the song is everywhere now. It’s not quite as annoying as the various iterations of “Finger Family” or as tedious as The Wheels on the Bus” or “Old MacDonald Had a Farm,” but its lyrics have the same unstoppable earworm effect, which means if you’ve ever heard it, you’re probably hearing it again in your head right now (doo doo doo doo doo doo doo).

Baby Shark is coming to life in a new animated TV as Nickelodeon is developing the project based on the viral song, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

Attack on Titan

Attack on Titan

“It’s hard to stay sane, living like this. It’s painful. I know that. But even so, we need to move forward.”

The previous episode of Attack on Titan focused heavily on stunning sequences of staggering violence and grueling sacrifices, but this week’s aftermath instead deals with the moral questions and different decisions that now have to be made in order to go on surviving. It’s proof that a comrade’s emotional betrayal or egotistical thinking can be just as debilitating as a physical barrage from a Titan. “Midnight Sun” is a moral uppercut that turns last week’s assault into an elegant one-two attack.

Before this installment really digs into its heavier territory and the conflict between the Scouts, it features a long overdue meeting between ...
