We all knew Star Wars: Episode IX would be coming out in 2019, but everyone assumed it would be Christmas, following in the steps of the previous two films in the trilogy. Turns out that will not be the case. Oh, and the fifth Indiana Jones movie just got a new date, too. As well as Frozen 2. And the live-action Lion…
It’s good to be Donald Glover. Coming off multiple awards for his show Atlanta, he’s about to play Lando in the Han Solo movie and now he’s joining another major Disney production. Jon Favreau just cast him as Simba in the live-action version of The Lion King.
The first trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming will likely be out before the end of the month, but audiences at a Brazilian convention got an early sneak today—and it came with a surprising revelation.
Disney’s putting a “reimagining” of The Lion King in the hands of Jon Favreau, following his version of The Jungle Book raking in piles and piles of money. This trend of Disney remaking its own hits forever and ever is great. A live-action Frozen movie has to be coming soon, right?
This is a nice surprise. It seems the original Iron Man director, Jon Favreau, will reprise his on-screen role as Tony Stark’s driver Happy Hogan in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
The fact Jon Favreau’s remake of The Jungle Book was so damn good was a huge surprise to film fans. No one was looking forward to yet another live-action remake of another classic animated Disney film, but the director and his team vastly improved on the original.
Disney’s live-action remake of The Jungle Book was a surprise hit, and it deserved its success. It really is a wonderful film and now, with the Blu-ray on the way, we’re learning some of its secrets.
It’s been two weeks since Disney’s Jungle Book was released—and we still can’t quite believe the whole thing was filmed in a downtown L.A. warehouse. Now Disney is peeling back the curtain and showing us just how this incredible spectacle was created.
Jon Favreau’s The Jungle Book ends with a credit that says “Filmed in Downtown Los Angeles.” This comes as a shocking revelation, after watching a film that takes place in a jungle. And yet, its technical mastery isn’t the most impressive thing in the film. The Jungle Book is the first of Disney’s live-action remakes…
Making a live-action remake of a beloved animated classic—a remake that nobody asked for—is a tough position to be in. You have to win over fans of the original, but also convert a whole new audience. For Jungle Book director Jon Favreau, the key to that challenge was capturing the right feeling.
This April, when audiences sit down to see Disney’s new live-action movie of The Jungle Book, they aren’t going to think about its technical achievements. Ideally, they’re going to get swept up in a story about a boy named Mowgli and his adventures in the jungle with a bunch of talking animals. But technical…
The first trailer for Jon Favreau’s live action Jungle Book is set to drop tomorrow, but Disney has released a Vine to whet our appetites for the film.
When we caught up with Adam Savage at San Diego Comic Con, he was excited to talk about all things Star Wars. For one thing, he’s got a special Star Wars episode of MythBusters coming up. For another, though, he visited the set of The Force Awakens, and saw something really, really cool.
I finally got around to seeing Chef, the Jon Favreau film about a chef who joins Twitter and (SPOILER ALERT) starts a food truck. Now food trucks and Twitter go together like Korean BBQ and tacos but in this film the tweet-integration was ridiculously blatant—really, to the point of distraction. So much so that when…
Things don't turn out so well for Jon Favreau's character Happy Hogan in this slightly different version of his meeting with an Extremis-powered henchman in Iron Man 3. In fact, the third installment of the Iron Man franchise could have proved fatal to Happy.
Today in perfect casting decisions: Bill Murray has been selected to provide the voice of Baloo the bear in Disney's remake of The Jungle Book.
This could be the most interesting new TV show of the next year or so. MTV has ordered Shannara, based on the heroic fantasy novels by Terry Brooks, straight to series. The first season will be 10 episodes, based on The Elfstones of Shannara.
There are two movie adaptations of The Jungle Book in the works right now, but only one of them will feature the leonine voice of Sir Ben Kingsley. Kingsley will be voicing the panther Bagheera opposite Idris Elba's Shere Khan.
There's going to be a Shannara TV series. (Hooray!) And it's going to be on MTV, which is... interesting. And with Iron Man's Jon Favreau directing. Can Favreau really recreate our epic-fantasy dreams on basic cable?
The pilot for Eric Kripke and J.J. Abrams' blackout series Revolution — directed by Iron Man's Jon Favreau — is online right now! The series takes place 15 years after a worldwide blackout takes out every single electrical device on the planet, including engines and batteries.
