The Walt Disney Studios 2017 Motion Picture Slate is awesome, and to keep you up-to-date on the latest news I am launching a Walt Disney Studios News Round-Up with information about Moana, Cars 3, & Beauty and the Beast!
So let the fun begin!
Walt Disney Studios News Round-Up ~ January 17, 2017
Walt Disney Animation Studios says ‘You’re Welcome’ to Moana fans later this month when an all-new sing-along version of the epic adventure will sail in to more than 2,000 theaters nationwide on January 27th and exclusively at Hollywood’s El Capitan Theatre on January 20th.
The sing-along version of Moana includes the full feature film with on-screen lyrics, so audiences can belt out the words to their favorite songs, such as the Golden Globe®-nominated “How Far I’ll Go.”
Make sure that you check your local listings for showtimes and theaters, because the sing-along run will vary by location.
MOANA home Release date announced
Audiences can soon enjoy the original theatrical version of the film at home and packed with a variety of bonus extras when Moana arrives on Digital HD/3D and Disney Movies Anywhere (DMA) on February 21st & on Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, Digital SD, DVD and On-Demand on March 7th.
Cars 3 Extended Look
Cars 3 is an all-new story that tests the heart of a champion in a high-tech world, and we have learned about two new characters and a new extended look at the movie was released!
It was announced that Cristela Alonzo, as unconventional trainer Cruz Ramirez, and Armie Hammer, as next-gen racer Jackson Storm, will be joining Owen Wilson in the cast of Cars 3.
Cruz Ramirez is a sunny-but-fierce unconventional trainer at the Rust-eze Racing Center. She expertly arms the team’s talented rookies with cutting-edge tools to tear up the track—but she nearly stalls when her longtime idol Lightning McQueen shows up. While she’d love to help him find his way back to the top, she knows the competition is faster than ever, and victory is all about speed—or is it?
Jackson Storm is fast, sleek and ready to race. A frontrunner in the next generation of racers, Storm’s quiet confidence and cocky demeanor are off-putting—but his unmatched speed threatens to redefine the sport. Trained on high-tech simulators that are programmed to perfect technique and maximize velocity, Jackson Storm is literally built to be unbeatable—and he knows it.
Lightning McQueen is world champion—a modern-day racing legend who’s riding high with five Piston-Cup wins under his hood. Suddenly, he finds himself faced with a new generation of racers who threaten not only his dominance in the sport—but the confidence that got him there. Determined to get back to the pole position, the #95 must decide if his love for racing is enough to fuel the comeback of his life.
And finally in Cars 3 news, I wanted to share the new extended look!
