Vancouver-based Bron Studios announced Tuesday that it is making its first CG-animated feature film, Sole Mates.
Disney is quoted as saying, “It all started with a mouse.” Disney was always inventing, always trying new things, pushing the animation envelope. Today is the seventy-fifth anniversary of Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs, and while it was not the first animated feature film, or even the first in full color… it was certainly the first commercially successful animated feature film, and it’s legacy is still being felt today.
Dreamworks Animation’s “Rise Of The Guardians” was named Best Motion Picture, Animated or Mixed Media at the Satellite Awards, held Sunday night by the International Press Academy at the Intercontinental Hotel in Beverly Hills.
“Rise of the Guardians” went past the $100 million benchmark at the foreign box office over the weekend.

DreamWorks Animation’s prehistoric comedy-adventure movie The Croods will have its world premiere at the 63rd Berlin International Film Festival, it was revealed Thursday.

Mikael Hed, chief executive of Finnish gaming company Rovio, says the company is going ahead with a 2016 feature film based on his company’s famous avians, the Angry Birds. But Hed is not happy just making a feature film, he plans on taking the giant of children’s animation, Disney.
I am REALLY on the fence about The Emperor’s New Groove. Sure, it has it’s moments… it has Eartha Kitt… it also has Patrick Warburton and Wendie Malick. On the down side, it does have the barely one-dimensional David Spade in the lead role, and it was directed by Mark Dindal who was still perfecting the art of really screwing up an animated film here (his Masters thesis was Chicken Little in 2005, easily the worst film ever from Disney.)
The rumors of Disney on ice are true, at least as far as the studio’s 53rd full-length animated feature full-length animated feature is concerned. Frozen, due in theaters in a little less than a year is that ice-cold project, and Disney has just released their first peak at the art from the film.
