Another day at CinemaCon 2012, another Hollywood presentation. Last night The Walt Disney Company hosted their big presentation looking at their upcoming slate of movies. Disney has become a huge studio in the last few years, taking over Marvel, as well as their own live action and animation productions, plus Pixar of course. The event included a lot of updates on Pixar projects (that we've covered as separate news) as well as a quick recap of Marvel's slate, and also a recap of their upcoming projects like Sam Raimi's Oz: The Great and Powerful and Tim Burton's Frankenweenie. Fire up our latest CinemaCon video blog below!
Overall, Disney's presentation didn't really get good until they got to Pixar. I had seen a lot of the footage before (at D23 last year), including the opening 6 minutes to Wreck-It-Ralph, which still looks great. From Pixar, the Monsters University teaser was fun but short, the Finding Nemo in 3D footage looked excellent, but it was the opening 30 minutes from Brave I loved the most. I am finally into Brave (as the trailers never sold me), the story and characters in the actual movie are wonderful, and I can't wait to see the entire film later this summer. We'll continue to keep you updated on everything coming up from Disney.
