Disney's Christopher Robin is Coming Home...

Get ready for another visit into the Hundred Acre Wood...

On November 6, one of my favorite films of 2018 (I've seen it three times) comes home as Disney’s Christopher Robin arrives on Digital HD, Movies Anywhere and on Blu-ray and DVD. In the live-action film (reviewed here), a grown-up Christopher Robin (Ewan McGregor) could use a little help from his friends, and it's up to Winnie the Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, Tigger and the rest of the crew from A.A. Milne's classic stories to head to London to answer the call. Check out all the bonus features below...

Disney's The Nutcracker and the Four Realms is coming to theaters this November, and thanks to the folks at Funko, some characters from the new version of the classic tale are coming to the famed Pop! Vinyl format. Hitting stores just in time for the 2018 holiday season, the Sugar Plum Fairy and Clara are up for pre-order now via my friends at Entertainment Earth. Check out the latest trailer for The Nutcracker below...

On December 19, a beloved character will return to cinemas as Disney's Mary Poppins Returns hits theaters - just in time for Christmas. Today comes the first full trailer for the film, and if there was ever any doubt to just how much this connects to the 1964 film, this fresh look at what's yet to come should put that to rest. Anyone interested in flying a kite?

It's going to be a magical holiday season, and today comes a look a nine new character posters from Disney's The Nutcracker and the Four Realms. This epic reimagining of the classic seasonal tale will hit theaters on November 2, 2018, and today's poster drop features detailed looks at the main cast as they gear-up for adventure. Take a look...

The pumpkin spice just started flowing last week and now I'm tempted to break out the peppermint mocha! I've been paying close attention to Disney's The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, and today comes the final trailer for this new holiday epic. Set for release on November 2, 2018, get a good look at what's yet to come. Is it too early for me to pop on The Brian Setzer Orchestra's GRAMMY-nominated version of "The Nutcracker Suite?" Of course not!

With Disney's Christopher Robin (reviewed here) delighting audiences with a tale of what happened when the most famous boy of The Hundred Acre Wood grew up, I recently had the chance to catch up with Director Marc Forster to discuss the production. While the entire genesis is fascinating - largely prompted a plane ride with his daughter in which she mentioned doing a Winnie the Pooh movie, what I was most interested in was the lived-in and much-loved look of the characters.  Seeing Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Piglet, Eeyore, Kanga and Roo, Owl and Rabbit realized in "live-action" thanks to the magic of CGI aided by real-world puppetry was wondrous, but I was curious how they arrived at what we see on screen... characters that looked to be a combination of the "Classic Pooh" from the books by A.A. Milne and E.H. Shepard along with flourishes taken from the famous Disney animated versions...
