Hasbro, Discovery to Launch New Kids Channel
By Maxie Zeus
04-30-2009, 10:56 PM
Discovery Communications and toymaker Hasbro will team up to launch a new kids network and website, the companies announced today.

The new network, which is expected to launch in late 2010, will draw on Discovery content, such as Tutenstein and Peep and the Big Wide World, and debut new live-action and animated programming based on such Hasbro properties as Romper Room, Transformers, Tonka, My Little Pony, G. I. Joe, The Game of Life, Trivial Pursuit, Cranium, and Scrabble. Hasbro will also invest in a new creative team to produce new content, including game shows.

Under terms of the joint venture Hasbro will purchase a fifty-percent stake in Discovery Kids Network and related assets for $300 million. The joint venture will also acquire a minority interest in the U.S. version of Hasbro.com.

No management team has been announced for the new venture, which will continue to operate under the Discovery Kids name until the debut of the new channel.


Yeah, I read that bit about Hasbro earlier this week.

I'm wondering what impact it'll have on the existing Transformers Animated and GI Joe. I think Transformers Animated is going to get ended with this present season for some newer one pushing a new line.

If they had had brains, they'd replay every Transformer series to date there and the GI Joe shows too.
"Why are you pointing your screwdrivers like that? They're scientific instruments, not water pistols."
"Oh, the pointing again! They're screwdrivers! What are you going to do? Assemble a cabinet at them?"
"Are you capable of speaking without flapping your hands about?"
""Timey" what? "Timey wimey"?"

Was never as big on GI Joe as I was on TF. Even then, didn't like a lot of the TF series. It would have been cool if they showed TF though, too bad about the timing. If they did it right before Revenge of the Fallen, it would have been nice.

Adult Swim Orders "Titan" Series from "Robot Chicken" Producers
By Maxie Zeus
05-07-2009, 8:34 AM
Adult Swim has ordered nine episodes of Titan, a stop-motion animated series from Robot Chicken producers Tom Root and Matthew Senreich, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The series will be set a century in the future, where a team of pilots—whose spaceships can combine to form the giant robot Titan Maximum—must reunite to fight a former team member who has gone rogue.

Titan will feature a continuing set of characters and story lines. Seth Green will voice the series' villain and executive produce with Root and Senreich. Other players cast include Breckin Meyer, Rachael Leigh Cook, Dan Milano, and Eden Espinosa.

Titan will debut in September.

At least they aren't trying to remake Mighty Orbots.

If Adult Swim can afford GI Joe Resolute, You think they would have pick up Buffy Animated when it was being shopped around.

Playthings face mortality in `Toy Story 3'

By DAVID GERMAIN – May 14, 2009

CANNES, France (AP) — Woody, Buzz Lightyear and their plaything pals are coping with abandonment issues in the new "Toy Story" sequel.

Next year's "Toy Story 3" has the gang learning they have reached their shelf life as the young boy who owns them grows up and goes off to college.

"Toys are put on this Earth to be played with by a child," said John Lasseter, director of the first two "Toy Story" movies and chief creative officer for Pixar and Disney animation. "The thing they worry about the most is all the things in life that prevent them from being played with, and probably the thing they fear the most is being outgrown."

Lasseter and his Pixar colleagues talked up the "Toy Story" sequel at the Cannes Film Festival, where their latest animation adventure, "Up," was the opening-night entry.

"Up" director Pete Docter, who helped develop the stories for the "Toy Story" flicks and was an animator on the first, said the creative minds behind the original movies holed up in a cabin for two days to brainstorm ideas for the third.

"For a while, we were worried that we didn't have the story. We were like, `Oh, nothing's coming,'" Docter said. "Then something clicked on the second day, and it just, like, flooded."

Tom Hanks and Tim Allen return as the main mouthpieces, providing the voices of toy buddies Woody and Buzz. Lee Unkrich, one of Lasseter's co-directors on "Toy Story 2," is directing the new sequel.

"Toy Story" was the first computer-animated feature-length movie, launching Hollywood into an era of digital cartoons that have superseded hand-drawn animation. Pixar movies, including "Finding Nemo," "Ratatouille" and "WALL-E," have won four of the eight Academy Awards for feature animation since the category was added in 2001.

Ed Catmull, president of Pixar and Disney's animation studios, said Pixar only does sequels if there is fresh ground to cover, and the "Toy Story" characters lent themselves to a whole new adventure.

"It feels like the summation of a trilogy," said Catmull, adding that the filmmakers had hit on a big emotional finish to "Toy Story 3."

He would not elaborate.

"I'm going to wait on that one. That's got to be the surprise of the film."

DreamWorks' Toon Slate
Studio announces animation lineup through 2012.
by IGN Staff

May 28, 2009 - DreamWorks Animation SKG, Inc. announced today its plans to release five feature films every two years, adding an additional film every other year to its existing two picture a year release schedule on a going-forward basis. The company also announced its upcoming slate of animated feature film releases through 2012.

The company's slate through 2012 now includes eight feature films from DreamWorks Animation's talented and seasoned creative leadership team, including five original films and three sequels based on the Company's existing blockbuster franchises, Shrek, Madagascar and Kung Fu Panda. As has been previously announced, all DreamWorks Animation feature films are now being produced in 3-D.

"Our exceptionally talented and highly experienced creative team is bringing to DreamWorks Animation a significant number of imaginative, original and cutting-edge ideas today," said Bill Damaschke, Co-President of Production and President of Live Theatrical. "Having achieved a high level of success and consistency in our creative process and having in our development pipeline more great story concepts than ever before, we are very confident in our ability to add one original film every other year."

The upcoming animated films on the company's future theatrical release schedule are currently planned as follows:

How to Train Your Dragon, which is based on the book of the same name by Cressida Cowell, will be released on March 26, 2010. It is being written and directed by Chris Sanders (Lilo & Stitch) and Dean DeBlois (Lilo & Stitch), produced by Bonnie Arnold (Over the Hedge, Toy Story) and will star Jay Baruchel, Gerard Butler, America Ferrera, Jonah Hill, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Craig Ferguson, Kristen Wiig and TJ Miller. Set in the mythical world of burly Vikings and wild dragons, the story centers around a teenager who lives on the island of Berk, where fighting dragons is a way of life. But when he encounters -- and ultimately befriends -- an injured dragon, his world is turned upside down.

Shrek Forever After will be released on May 21, 2010. Aron Warner (producer of the Shrek franchise films) and Andrew Adamson (Shrek, The Chronicles of Narnia) are serving as executive producers on the film, which is being directed by Mike Mitchell and produced by Teresa Cheng and Gina Shay and will feature the original all-star cast, including Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy, Cameron Diaz and Antonio Banderas.

Oobermind (formerly titled Master Mind) will be released on November 5, 2010. It is being directed by Tom McGrath (Madagascar, Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa), executive produced by Ben Stiller and Stuart Cornfeld, produced by Lara Breay and Denise Nolan Cascino and will star Robert Downey, Jr. and Tina Fey. When super villain Oobermind defeats his archrival Metro Man, the world should be his oyster. But instead, Oobermind falls into total despair. It turns out that life without a rival is life without a point for him. So he creates a new superhero rival. Unfortunately, the new hero wants to be a super villain, too. Who can we turn to? Who has what it takes to stand up to this menace? Who will defend the innocent? Oobermind! That's who.

Kung Fu Panda: The Kaboom of Doom will be released on June 3, 2011. The next chapter of the 2008 blockbuster is directed by Jennifer Yuh Nelson, produced by Melissa Cobb and will feature the return of the original all-star cast, including Jack Black, Angelina Jolie, Dustin Hoffman, Jackie Chan, Seth Rogen, Lucy Liu and David Cross. A new villain has emerged with a mysterious weapon so powerful it threatens the very existence of kung fu. It is up to Po and the Furious Five to protect all that they know. But first, Po must confront his long lost past.

The Guardians (working title), based on the forthcoming books by William Joyce, will be released on November 4, 2011. It was brought to the company by William Joyce and Reel FX, and is being directed by Jeff Lynch in collaboration with William Joyce and produced by Christina Steinberg and Nancy Bernstein. The world's five unlikeliest heroes -- Jack Frost, North (a.k.a. Santa), Bunnymund (the Easter Bunny), Tooth (the Tooth Fairy), and Sandy (the Sandman) -- must band together to stop an ancient spirit called Pitch (the Boogeyman) from plunging the world into eternal darkness.

Puss In Boots (working title) will be released on March 30, 2012. It is being directed by Chris Miller, produced by Joe Aguilar and Michelle Raimo and executive produced by Andrew Adamson, and will star Antonio Banderas as Puss In Boots and Salma Hayek as Kitty, Puss' love interest. Swords will cross and hearts will be broken in this adventure starring one of the most beloved characters of the Shrek universe -- Puss In Boots. It's a swashbuckling ride through Puss's early years as he teams with mastermind Humpty Dumpty and the street-savvy Kitty to steal the famed Goose that lays the Golden Eggs.

The next chapter of the company's hit franchise Madagascar is due to be released on May 25, 2012. It is being directed by Eric Darnell (Madagascar, Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa) and produced by Mireille Soria (Madagascar, Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa) and Mark Swift (Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa). Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Gloria the Hippo, and Melman the Giraffe are still fighting to get home to their beloved Big Apple; King Julien, Maurice and the Penguins are along for the adventure. This time the road takes them through Europe where they find the perfect cover: a traveling circus, which they reinvent Madagascar style!

On November 2, 2012, the company plans to release one of three original projects currently in pre-production at the studio. The first is The Croods (working title), which is being directed by Chris Sanders and Kirk DeMicco and produced by Kristine Belson and Jane Hartwell. An old school caveman must lead his family across a volatile prehistoric landscape in search of a new home. The outsized flora and fauna are challenge enough, but the real complication arises when the family is joined by an alarmingly modern caveman whose search for "tomorrow" is at odds with our hero's reliance on the traditions of yesterday. The second is Truckers (working title) based on The Bromeliad Trilogy by fantasy legend Terry Pratchett and written by Academy Award winning writer, Simon Beaufoy. A society of tiny beings lives in a department store, right underfoot and unseen by the humans that shop there. To them, the store is the entire universe. And when they discover that the store is slated for demolition, they must embark on an epic journey to find a new home... ultimately learning that their true home is literally out of this world! And the third is an as-yet-untitled Super Secret Ghost Project, in which DreamWorks Animation will bring you ghosts as you've never seen them before.

DreamWorks Animation Chief Operating Officer Ann Daly added, "We are thrilled with our exciting line-up of feature projects. With so many promising original ideas and new franchise chapters in our pipeline, we believe this is the perfect time to share our theatrical plans for the next few years as we continue to lead the 3-D charge and push creative boundaries to bring our stories to life."

Heavy Metal Gets Heavy Hitters
Four huge directors onboard.
by Christopher Monfette

June 8, 2009 - A recent interview with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles creator Kevin Eastman revealed some rather mind-blowing intel on the upcoming animated Heavy Metal film.

After a lengthy discussion with Film School Rejects, Eastman revealed a line-up of directors for the project that could literally melt your face.

"I've got breaking news that Fincher and James Cameron are going to be Co-Executive Producers on the film," said Eastman. "Fincher will direct one. Cameron will direct one. Zack Snyder is going to direct one and Gore Verbinski is going to. Mark Osborne and Jack Black from Tenacious D are going to do a comedy segment for the film. Three other directors have agreed but we haven't signed them, but they're equally as jaw-dropping. So we're on cloud nine to be working with such an amazing amount of talent."

Penny for your thoughts on who could be as "jaw-dropping" as Fincher, Cameron, Verbinski and Snyder. Let the speculation begin!
