Back in May I shared the teaser trailer for the upcoming Disney feature “Maleficent: Mistress Of Evil” which you can examine HERE if you are so inclined. With that post I pointed out that sequels no longer surprise me and since I did enjoy the first film, I was definitely curious to see how a chapter two might work out. Earlier today, the fine folks at the House Of Mouse delivered the first Official Trailer and you may peruse it down below along with the premise, casting and some additional poster visuals.

The Synopsis: A fantasy adventure that picks up several years after Maleficent, in which audiences learned of the events that hardened the heart of Disney’s most notorious villain and drove her to curse a baby Princess Aurora, Maleficent II continues to explore the complex relationship between the horned fairy and the soon to be Queen, as they form new alliances and face new adversaries in their struggle to protect the moors and the magical creatures that reside within.

The world at large has recently gotten live action renditions of a number of Disney classics with “Aladdin” already in theaters and “The Lion King” opening up in the coming days. On that note, the news about casting for a live action “The Little Mermaid” is circulating so finding out that “Mulan” was doing the same thing I wasn’t really surprised. The first teaser look at the film was just recently released so let’s take a look at it along with the premise, casting and the first teaser poster as well.

The Plot: When the Emperor of China issues a decree that one man per family must serve in the Imperial Army to defend the country from Northern invaders attacking China, Hua Mulan, the eldest daughter of an honored warrior, steps in to take the place of her ailing father. She is spirited, determined and quick on her feet. Masquerading as a man, Hua Jun, she is tested every step of the way and must harness her inner-strength and embrace her true potential. It is an epic journey that will transform her into not only an honored warrior, but one of China’s greatest warriors ever and earn her the respect of a grateful nation…and a proud father.

It’s been two years since we’ve explored the world of Jumanji with “Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle” and that means a sequel is just about right by now. Let’s take a look at how the story continues and changes with the times with the first official trailer that I’ve embedded down below. I’ve also added some premise and casting. Let’s watch.

The Premise: Unknown to his friends, Spencer kept the pieces of the Jumanji video game, and one day worked to repair the system in the basement of his grandfather’s house. When Spencer’s friends, Bethany, Fridge, and Martha arrive, they find Spencer missing and the game running, and decide to re-enter Jumanji to save him. Spencer’s grandfather, Eddie, and his friend, Milo Walker, hear the commotion, and inadvertently get sucked into the game too. The teenaged friends must help Eddie and Milo get used to their in-game avatars and get them to help find Spencer and escape Jumanji once again.
