As you all are probably aware by now, Broadway is on hiatus for the time-being based on the effects of the still in progress Coronavirus Pandemic. Recent reports say that its likely not to return until Winter when the year turns over but some even have pushed this as far as Spring 2021. One of the hottest plays currently on the stage is Lin-Manuel Miranda’s “Hamilton”. The play has been a blockbuster since opening and has won “11” Tony Awards. It was set to open in theaters everywhere sometime in 2021 but with the virus causing so many shows and events to be cancelled or postponed until indeterminate dates, the decision was made to stream this on Disney+ beginning on July 3rd. The trailer was recently released so let’s check that out along with the premise, casting and the official poster.
As previously discussed, the latest film in the Disney live-action adventures comes care of the movie “Artemis Fowl” which is a bit of a spy thriller that is based on a series of Young Reader novels. This film was supposed to make its debut in the theaters but thanks to the Coronavirus Pandemic instead will be available today and going forward on their popular Disney+ Streaming Service. We’ve touched upon the film already with the Official Trailer and the Special Look clips that you can see by clicking the highlighted text at your leisure. Now it’s time to look at the poster, the premise and the casting on this Kenneth Branagh directed film
By now I’m hoping that a number of you streaming fans have seen some of the information about the coming at us in the next few weeks service called “Disney+”. They had a cool trailer that I posted over on PiercingMetal a couple of months ago which you can check out by clicking HERE.
The Press Release:
Verizon and The Walt Disney Company’s Direct-to-Consumer and International segment announced a wide-ranging agreement that will offer all Verizon wireless unlimited customers, new Fios Home Internet and 5G Home Internet customers 12 months of Disney+. Set to launch on November 12, Disney+ will be the dedicated streaming home for movies and shows from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic, and more. The agreement will allow Verizon Wireless customers to stream Disney+ on the largest, most reliable network1 and provide yet another reason for customers to choose Verizon for the best content choices available.
Eligible Verizon customers will have access to the highly anticipated streaming service where they can experience everything Disney+ has to offer: never-before-seen original programming including feature-length films, series, documentaries, and short-form content made exclusively for Disney+, along with unprecedented access to Disney’s vast collection of films and television shows. In its first year alone, Disney+ will release more than 25 original series and 10 original films and documentaries, including “The Mandalorian,” from executive producer and writer Jon Favreau, and “Lady and the Tramp,” a timeless re-telling of the 1955 animated classic.
From the looks of it, there doesn’t seem to be a shortage of live-action versions of the Walt Disney Pictures classic animations coming to light. We recently found “The Lion King” being a blockbuster of a success and “Mulan” is coming out soon as well along with a sequel to the original story of “Maleficent”. This latest one is a take on “Lady and The Tramp”, the timeless love story that involves two dogs and was an animated feature that would bring a tear to your eyes. The only difference about this from the others is that it will NOT open in theaters at all and be an exclusive to the upcoming Disney+ streaming service. Let’s look at the Official Trailer that was unveiled at D23 Expo.
The Premise: Lady and the Tramp is set to tell the story of “an upper-middle-class American cocker spaniel named Lady who meets a streetsmart, downtown stray Schnauzer called the Tramp, and the two embark on many romantic adventures including that iconic spaghetti smooch scene.” Continue reading Disney+ “Lady and The Tramp” Official Trailer→
