I'm going to cry if they don't talk about Gigantic. Alpha, have you heard all the trouble it's causing for Spain - Epcot right?
Well... that was a letdown.
I'd give Pixar a B, but DAS get a D
No Frozen 2, no Gigantic, no new announcements, and it seems for WIR2, they'd rather awkwardly push their own IP than shell out money for fun cameos
I felt slightly more optimistic about the showing. Yeah, Olaf's Frozen Adventure wasn't all that necessary of a slot considering the fact that it's just a theatrical short, but outside of that, glad to see that DisneyToon Studios still exists and is creating something original as opposed to another Tinkerbell or Planes movie (DisneyToon Studios should really take a shot at an Oswald feature film). When it comes to Wreck-It Ralph 2, just because it's based on the internet doesn't mean that video game character still can't cameo, it just means that the subject matter's shifted.
And truth be told, despite Gigantic not showing, I think that's a smart move. The movie's registered for a 2020 release, it'd be wise to hold it off for D23 2019.
On the Disney Animated Classics side, I'm most excited for Wreck-It Ralph 2, but I honestly would've wanted it to focus on console gaming since the first one focused on arcade gaming, but hey, the premise of Ralph on the Internet sounds fun, and the description of the footage shown at D23 sounds promising! So I won't complain! Frozen 2 also sounds cool, but it's really hit or miss for me. I thought that the first one did a good job encapsulating its message, so I don't know how they'll go about a second one! And Gigantic is still a mystery, but I'm looking forward to any developments on that in the future!
As for Pixar's side of things, The Incredibles 2 obviously takes the spot as my most anticipated upcoming Pixar film! I loved the first one, and ever since the end, I think it's safe to say that all of us were dying for a sequel, and now, so many years later, we're just a few months away from getting the film! Gahhh, so much hype! Coco also looks promising, and while I was a little skeptical about Toy Story 4 at first, I've warmed up to the idea of the film, so long as they retain what makes Toy Story amazing!
Yeah, I think the shift in subject matter has jaded people, because it's the only good motion picture based on video games that's good. So to change that would be alienating for the gamer fans. Still, the people who attended stated that Wreck-It Ralph 2 stole the show entirely. It's so clever how The Incredibles 2 is only a minute after the first film. I think that's the shortest time lapse in cinematic history. And with Toy Story 4, Josh Cooley is a talented director, so I trust his direction for the movie.
Coco is the closest movie to being released hence why I'm not talking much about it, but it does look promising. I can't wait to see it.
Rumors say that Frozen 2 might focus (???) on Hans's redemption Also, the sequel really needs some focus on Elsa, because, despite being one of the central characters in the story, in my opinion, the first movie focused 95% on Anna.
I have a good feeling that Elsa will be the protagonist for Frozen 2, Pixar switched protagonists for Cars 2. Anna had 95% of the screen time in the first Frozen because she was the main character. Hans was Anna's former love interest before he ended up being the villain, Kristoff was Anna's current love interest, that's why the story revolved around her, because it was her story.
And yeah, I heard news about Hans redemption too. How are they going to pull that off? and who's going to replace him as the villain of the Frozen franchise?
