Disenchanted

In conversation with Variety, Patrick Dempsey described Enchanted sequel Disenchanted as “a midlife crisis movie” which will see him “singing for the first time.”

I will be singing for the first time. I’ve never ever sung publicly — for a reason. So bear with me. I hope the fans embrace it. But they’ve set me up for success and the lyrics are really fun. The numbers have really great choreography. And the premise is going to be interesting.

Every year they were like, ‘We’re going to do this. It’s going to get done,’ but then no one could agree on the script. It’s such an important film for them and it’s a satire. It’s not a typical Disney movie. It’s kind of off-brand a little bit. Yet we give honor to all of those Disney movies that have come before and they finally now have figured it out. And we’re old enough, so it’s like a midlife crisis movie.

As the Stone Age gives way to a shiny and enlightened new Bronze Age, the residents of Bedrock will find this evolution harder than a swing from Bamm-Bamm’s club.” Lindsay Kerns (DC Super Hero Girls) has been tapped to write the pilot.

Percy Jackson

In a recent blog post, Percy Jackson author Rick Riordan confirmed casting for the upcoming Disney+ series is now officially underway.

We are looking for an actor who can “play 12.” That allows for a range in the actual age of the actor, but the goal is to stay true to the original story and have Percy’s character age from 12 to 16 over the course of the TV series, assuming of course we are lucky enough to make all five seasons. That will depend on viewership on Disney+, which is where all of you can help!

Have you heard about this? They’re saying The Rock’s Black Adam costume doesn’t need padding.

I’m calling a big ol’ huge BS on the “no padding” thing. He might need less padding because he’s so goddamn huge, but those stretchy superhero outfits remove all form and modern superhero costumes still tend to show off defined muscles.

And poor Zachary Levi. He put in the work. He got big. I liked his suit, but I think they overdid his shoulders and he’s gotten flak for using a “padded” suit ever since. They’re all padded!
