She-ra is Making an Animated Comeback on Netflix!

Netflix and Dreamworks Animation have announced that they have a new slate of animated series projects in development that are set to launch next year. One of the most exciting projects that came with the announcement includes a revival of the classic 80s series She-Ra: Princess of Power!

I hope that the series turns out to be good. I think it's something that my girls are going to love. I'm sure most of you are familiar with She-Ra, but if not, she is also known as Princess Adora and is the twin sister of Prince Adam a.k.a. He-Man. She was kidnapped as a baby by the Horde's leader Hordak. She is eventually given the Sword of Protection, which parallels He-Man's Sword of Power, gaining the power to transform into She-Ra.

The series is being developed by showrunner Noelle Stevenson, who is the Eisner-winning co-creator of Lumberjanes. Here’s

Weekend Preview: 'Kung Fu Panda 3' To Top 'Fifty Shades of Black' and 'Finest Hours'

Weekend Preview: 'Kung Fu Panda 3' To Top 'Fifty Shades of Black' and 'Finest Hours'
Kung Fu Panda 3 enters a marketplace where the largest January opening for an animated feature is currently 2014's The Nut Job with $19.4 million. You can count on Po the Panda squashing that number with ease. Additional new releases looking to find a place on the chart this weekend include the 1950s-set disaster thriller The Finest Hours, the R-rated spoof feature Fifty Shades of Black and Jane Got a Gun. Question is, while Po and the Furious Five are taking the top spot will these other new releases be able to top last weekend's top two films? Last weekend's box office took a hit thanks to the East Coast snowstorm and films such as The Revenant and Star Wars may be looking to make up some ground. Starting with number one, and working in the favor of Kung Fu Panda 3 is the fact the last really strong animated release was

Examining the Spin-Off Trend as 'How to Train Your Dragon' Director Talks Franchise's Future

Spin-offs are the new sequels. Case in point, instead of continuing his overarching story with a How to Train Your Dragon 4 after the series' third installment, Collider reports director Dean DeBlois is keener on spinning off the How to Train Your Dragon franchise to include other tales. DeBlois gave no indication what those tales might, er, entail, but let's step back for a moment and examine the trend Hollywood is forging here. In an effort to expand the worlds created within their most popular blockbusters, studios aren't simply using the same characters to tell new stories, they are producing films and television shows to broaden those worlds' scopes and increase the amount of the stories that can be told within them. Aside from storytelling, and more importantly I'd argue, this is done to benefit the bottom line, because Hollywood is a business, first and foremost. Just look at Marvel's Cinematic Universe,

Watch: Vibrant New Trailer for Fox's Animated 'The Book of Life'

"I'll do anything to be with Maria." Though we're not accustomed to a filmmaker like Guillermo del Toro venturing into kids territory, the story at the center of The Book of Life certainly doesn't seem like a typical fairytale, at least when it comes to the vibrant style of the animation. Jorge R. Gutierrez is behind the new film which follows a young man named Manolo (Diego Luna) struggling to win over the love of his life and please his family. But things get complicated when a wager between the gods of the dead over who will win the hand of Maria (Zoe Saldana) forces Manolo into an adventure through fantastical worlds. Here's the first trailer for Jorge R. Gutierrez's The Book of Life, originally from Apple: The Book of Life is directed by Jorge R.

First Trailer & Poster for Guillermo del Toro's Animated 'Book of Life'

Following yesterday's first look photos, the first official trailer and poster for the animated film The Book of Life from producer Guillermo del Toro have arrived. The story follows the journey of Manolo (Diego Luna), an aspiring musician struggling with pleasing his family and winning over the love of his life (Zoe Saldana). There's some truly stunning animation on display here, like a mix of the world of Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas, but in the style of the Day of the Dead celebration. Channing Tatum seems a bit out of place as a rival romancer, but this still looks like an original adventure for everyone. Watch it! Here's the first trailer for Jorge R.

First Look at Guillermo del Toro and Fox's Animated 'Book of Life'

Though the next film from Guillermo del Toro as a director is Crimson Peak, and that's not arriving until 2015, we'll still get a project that will have a special touch from the revered filmmaker. The Book of Life is a new animated film from Fox Animation coming this fall, and while we've seen some concept art from the project directed by Jorge R. Gutierrez, the first official stills have arrived, showing off a unique animation style. The male characters look a bit like boxy marionettes, which is a bit weird, and I can't decide if I really like it or not. But the settings look gorgeous, and again, it sounds like a truly original tale. Images below! Here's the first photos from Jorge R.

"Frozen," "Monsters University" Top Annie Awards Nominations!

Nominations for the 41st Annual Annie Awards were announced and "Frozen" and "Monsters University" led the pack with 10 nominations each. "Despicable Me 2" and "The Croods" followed closely with 9 noms each.

I am rooting for "Frozen" to win! It's a return to form to what Disney does best -- affecting fairy tale with memorable musical numbers. "Monsters University," on the other hand, was bland. The film bored me on second viewing.

Steven Spielberg will receive the Winsor McCay Award for career achievement at the awards ceremony happening on Saturday, Feb. 1, at Royce Hall on the UCLA campus. Patrick Warburton will serve as host.
