Pixar and parent company Disney have been sneaking in little references to other films and franchises for years. Screen Rant catalogs some of the best ones out there in this extended mix of Easter egg videos. The Zootopia/Emmett Otterton one is our favorite.
Since Disney took over the Star Wars franchise, we’ve been pleasantly surprised by the quality of the content. But that doesn’t mean it couldn’t quickly head South. Creator Josh Poley and his friends envision our worst nightmare. What’s next, midichlorian action figures?

This modern reboot of the 1977 Disney flick about an orphaned boy and his best friend (a dragon) actually looks pretty magical, capturing the spirit of ’80s fantasy films like E.T., and The Neverending Story – at least in the trailer. Let’s hope the movie works out as well.
The latest trailer for Disney’s animated flick expounds on the animal-filled storyline – as an unlikely of a con artist and a rookie cop set out on an adventure to solve mystery together. From the directors behind Bolt and Wreck-It Ralph, and starring an awesome voice cast.
