The Hollywood Reporter says that Disney is already planning the live-action Hunchback of Notre Dame movie. JK, no they aren’t, it’s way too soon–but they are donating $5 million towards the fund set up to rebuild the iconic Notre Dame after it was severely damaged in a fire. I see what you’re doing here: start working on the script and pre-production and then once the church is rebuilt you swoop in and start filming. I see you, Disney.
It’s a goddamn shame my repeated calls to Disney re: live-action remakes have gone unanswered. They could have saved themselves a lot of time, energy and good will had they only listened to me instead of filing that restraining order. I told them not to do it to The Lion King and they ignored me. Now we have to suffer through people bitching and complaining all summer that Scar doesn’t look enough like Ashford from Ashford & Simpson. I even warned these idiots SPECIFICALLY not to mess with Lady and the Tramp, and what did they do? They made a laughing stock out of the entire house of mouse by releasing a promotional still from the upcoming Disney + streaming production which is so remarkably bad, I wish they had just gone ahead and remade Song of The South.
For the first time in furstory, RuPaul needs to tell both Mufasa (James Earl Jones) and Scar (Chiwetel Ejiofor) to sashay away. The time came for them to lipsync for their lives, and they both fucked it up. In the first full-length trailer for Disney’s “live-action” remake of The Lion King, it’s impossible to tell what is a voiceover and what is supposed to be coming out of them critters’ mouths. Sorry, Disney. This is not an improvement. I honestly think they’ve made a grave mistake. None of this looks right to me. In the original, Simba smiled to express joy. You cannot have a realistic lion smile, it would be positively ghoulish. So they’ve all got weird, stiff mouths and they should have kept their veils on.
Lindsay Lohan Seems Pissed Over Lea Michele Playing Ariel In The Hollywood Bowl’s “The Little Mermaid”
Lindsay Lohan has a new arch-nemesis to deal with, besides Paris Hilton and dignity. Lindsay has her vengeful eyes set on one person at the moment and her name is Lea Michele. Why is Lindsay so mad? Did Lea also open up a beach club where drunk euro trash can have sex in the bathroom high off MDMA? No, but close. Lea stole an acting role from Lindsay, the one she was born for! Ariel in The Little Mermaid. A role where Lindsay wouldn’t have to deliver any lines or walk much? It’s perfect!
Michael Keaton is a class act and always has been since Mister Mom right on up until he quietly shelved his Oscars acceptance speech when he didn’t win Best Actor for Birdman. And finally, the class act within has been turned without and we see him in his full glory! Here’s Michael Keaton done up as “V.A. Vandervere” in he upcoming live-action Dumbo flick. Please note the wavy perfection of the hair, the austere blue of the shades, and the sexy, commanding finger on that cane. Cane ME, Mr. Vandervere! Silver Fox Michael Keaton is already the best-dressed at tonight’s Golden Globes and I don’t think he’s even going to tonight’s Golden Globes.
The new Jungle Cruise movie Disney will be cranking out in 2020 is showing us all how progressive the company is becoming by having a gay character in it… sort of. Kind of. Well, he comes out Disney-style.
