    Alan Tudyk Says He's Lending His Voice To An Upcoming Pixar Movie

    Plus Actor Reveals Details Of His Character In 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire HunterThe words "terminally undersung" and "Alan Tudyk" are almost inseparable. The actor has been a familiar presence on screen for a decade, cropping in the likes of "28 Days" and "Wonder Boys," before going on to geek stardom with a big role in "Firefly."

He's someone that we're always happy to see on screen...

    A few years ago, Disney planned a theatrical release for a 3D version of "Beauty & the Beast," using the cutting edge, post-"Avatar" technology that we've all come to know so well (and sometimes dread just as much). The conversion took place, at great expense, but the theatrical engagement (originally set for February, 2010) never materialized. Still, the studio pressed ahead (Walt always said that good ideas never die), and this week the studio's traditionally animated crown jewel "The Lion King," in a shiny new 3D format, will get a proper release – in 2,000 3D screens across the country. But what does a 3D version of a traditionally animat...

    Angus MacLane To Direct New 'Toy Story' Short 'Small Fry'; Clip From 'Air Mater' Debuts

    Well, D23 has come and gone, and with Disney's insistence on controlling the message suffocating any spontaneity and excitement -- coupled by a distinct lack of any real news other than some details about the new Pixar films -- the event was a bit of let down.

    D23: ‘John Carter,’ ‘Timothy Green’ Receive Lukewarm Responses

    'Oz' & 'Frankenweenie' Presentations Are BriefAt this weekend’s D23 convention, Disney hopes to capitalize on the excitement around must-see projects like “The Avengers,” Pixar’s “Brave” and “The Muppets” by presenting a look at their entire slate of releases across all divisions.
