Star Wars A U film should be suitable for audiences aged four years and over, although it is impossible to predict what might upset any particular child.

U films should be set within a positive framework and should offer reassuring counterbalances to any violence, threat or horror. If a work is particularly suitable for pre-school children, this will be indicated in the ratings info.

Star Wars’ Original Re-Release Makes Modern Movies Look Tiny  Screen Rant

Lucasilm and 20th Century Fox's re-release of George Lucas' original Star Wars movie, A New Hope, makes other movie re-releases seem tiny.

Fri, 23rd August 2019

23rd August 2019

With Disney holding their bi-annual fan conference the this weekend (August 23 - 25) their new streaming service Disney+ is going to feature heavily, and after the box office success of The Lion King and Aladdin remakes this year the company is releasing Lady And THe Tramp on the service.

Today they have released the first poster for the movie which as you can see is a re-image itself of the poster for the original animated movie from 1955.

Lady And The Tramp (1955)

The film will be a mixture of live action and CGI animation, although clearly the focus will be on the dogs which will be CGI, and similar to The Lion King the line between what is real and created on a computer will be blurred.

Disney are set to announce more for their new streaming service which boasts it will have content from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic and cost around $7 a month (about £5.70 at current exchange rate).

23rd August 2019

Being held in Anaheim California August 23rd - 25th the Ultimate Disney Fan Event is held by the company on a bi-annual basis and gives the fans news on the latest movies, TV shows and theme parks.

What can we expect for this years event? With a new Star Wars movie around the corner, the end of the phase 3 Marvel Cinematic Universe, a new Frozen movie on the horizons and an area of the Disney theme parks dedicated to Star Wars!

Lucasfilm (Star Wars)

<u><i><b>Star Wars</b></i></u>: The Rise Of Skywalker

There may not be a new trailer coming out of the D23 expo for Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker but we can expect a behind the scenes reel, as we did with the last 2 films, with new footage and most likely, and just maybe we'll get an official movie poster.

There may also be some news on the new trilogy of films that are set for release every other year from December 2023.

There has been a feeling that we have had too much Star Wars in recent years so after this years movie expect the whole franchise to go quiet until the promotion starts for he 2023 movie.

Disney are releasing their own streaming service this year, Disney+, and the Star Wars Universe ig going to feed into this a lot over the years between The Rise Of Skywalker and the next cinematic adventure including the much anticipated The Mandalorian for which there will likely be a trailer.

Lets not also forget that other Lucasfilms franchise, Indianan Jones. The next movie has already been delayed but is going ahead with Harrison Ford, little is known but with a whole area dedicated to the film studio there could well be some mention of the original tomb raider.

Marvel Cinematic Universe

Black Widow

The MCU phase 3 went out with a massive bang and Avengers: Engame became the top grossing movie of all time and Spider-Man: Far from home grossed over a Billion at the box office, so the phase 4 has a lot to live up to.

The first spanner in the works is the breakdown of the Disney and Sony (who own Spider-Man) partnership so don't expect to hear anything from the Spidey franchise, but with the acquisition of Fox by Disney every other Marvel character can now be used by Disney so expect to see the likes of X-Men and Fantastic 4 cropping up, not that we'll hear anything at D23.

There should be more news on the confirmed project like Shang-Chi, Black Widow and Thor: Love And Thunder, maybe there will even be a trailer for the Scarlett Johansson starring movie which is the first of these movie out the door next March.

Again the Disney+ streaming service, due for launch this year, will be a major part of the MCU going forward with the prospect of TV series adding to the Universe as well as movies.

Avatar

Avatar logo

One of the properties that Disney aquired when it bought Fox was James Camerons former highest grossing movie Avatar and all planed sequels.

They have been a long time coming but with the opening of the Pandora area (the planet in the movie) in Animal Kingdom in Orlando Disney are keen to get the sequels made and have announced they will be released bi-yearly fron 2022.

There will be an Avatar area as the expo and the possibility of more information of the sequels which are being made back to back.

Walt Disney Animation Studios And Pixar

Frozen II

Lets not forget the animated Disney Movies! On the horizon is Frozen II, which is kind of a big deal, the original film is still the true highest grossing animated movie of all time (not counting the new The Lion King movie) and became a cultural phenomenon back in 2013.

The trailers have promised much and we could see more footage from the film which is set for release at the end of 2019.

It has been announced that there will be a Moana area coming to Epcot in the revamp of the Walt Disney World park, this could be a sign that there is a sequel to the 2016 animated movie.

Pixar will also be showing off its future movies Onwards and Soul at a presentation during the weekend.

Little has beed seen from these movies from the digital animated arm of the company except for a trailer for Onwards, so fans are excited to see more and this is the perfect platform.

There is of course much more that will come out of the Expo so come back regularly to get all the latest news.

7th June 2019

The Pixar movie Toy Story 4 has been age rated by the BBFC and given a U certificate for very mild violence, scary scenes.

U Certificate

The fourth film in the Toy Story saga has all your favourite characters back for more adventures, this time it looks like its set in a travelling amusement park and Woody seems to get lost with the rest of the toys of Buzz Lightyear, Rex and Mr Potato Head et el searching for him.

The original three films are considered one of the greatest film trilogies of all time sitting alongside the likes of the original Star Wars trilogy and The Lord Of The Rings trilogy.

Hence there are high hopes for the new movie and judging by the trailers Pixar wont be disappointing us.

The BBFC have given the film a U age rating for very mild violence, scary scenes and it has an official run time of 100 minutes (1 hour 40 minutes).

31st May 2019

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge (Star Wars Land) opens at the Los Angeles based Disneyland on Friday May 31st 2019, and from early word it is nothing short of amazing.

<u><i><b>Star Wars</b></i></u>: Galaxys Edge Land

The land which is part of the main park at Disneyland has been 3 years in the making and is one of the most anticipated projects in the Star Wars fan base since Disney bought Lucasfilms.

The land had its dedication ceremony on Wednesday 29th May in front of the Millennium Falcon replica (which is full size) hosted by Disney CEO Bob Igor and attended by Star Wars creator George Lucas, Luke Skywalker actor Mark Hamill, Lando Calrissian actor Billy Dee Williams and Han Solo Harrison Ford, Chewbeccca made an appearance in the cockpit of the Falcon, after he failed to start the ship Ford hit it to get it to start.

Check out the video below, and fast forward to 1 hour 15 minutes to get to the actual ceremony.

There are plenty of YouTubers putting up videos with two of our favourites FreshBaked and Tim Tracker top of the list.

Hopefully it wont be long before we get to go ourselves, but if you get a chance to emerge yourself in the best thing to happen to Star Wars since The Force Awakens then let us know.

For those of you that can't get to Disneyland in California an exact replica is being built in Orlando Florida as part of Disney's Hollywood Studio wihch opens later in the year on August 29 2019, and there is word that Disneyland Paris and the Disney World in Tokyo are set to get version in the years to come.

<u><i><b>Star Wars</b></i></u>: Galaxys Edge Land

And check out the Disney Blogs site (linked in the tweet below) for some good information on the new land, and a look at the new Disneyland maps that are available in the parks.
