Published

l intro 1650390332

Upon discovering Jennet’s reason for claiming the lives of innocent kids, Arthur concocts a plan: if he can reunite mother with son, she’ll stop her vengeance. Arthur, along with his new acquaintance Sam Daily (Ciarán Hinds), trek through the marsh to retrieve Nathaniel’s body from the sunken carriage. After doing so, he brings Nathaniel inside Eel Marsh House, places him on a bed, and surrounds him with toys. A few moments pass before Jennet’s spirit comes whipping through the room, an occurrence that Arthur mistakenly sees as a good sign.

Following a stressful few days, Arthur’s own little boy Joseph (Misha Handley) arrives in Crythin Gifford by train, with a caretaker at his side. As they’re are standing on the platform, Joseph spots none other than the Woman in Black. Stuck under her deadly spell, he walks onto the tracks just as a train is approaching at high speed.

When Arthur sees what’s unfolding before his eyes, he dives onto the tracks to save Joseph, but it’s an impossible feat. Moments after the collision, they’re surrounded by a glowing, white light, which turns out to be Arthur’s late wife Stella (Sophie Stuckey) there to greet them. As the reunited family walks toward the light together, Jennet stands nearby watching and looking as menacing as ever.

Idina Menzel and Kristen Chenoweth Are Open to Appearing in Wicked’s Film Adaptation

Published

WICKEDIdina

Idina Menzel may have started her theater career in another Broadway musical, Rent, but the Tony and Grammy award-winning actress is also famously known for her works in Frozen, Enchanted, and Cinderella. She is also known as one of the original cast members of Wicked, starring as Elphaba the Wicked Witch of the West from 2003 to 2005. Starring alongside her playing the part of Glinda the Good Witch was another Tony and Grammy Award winner, Kristen Chenoweth.

News broke recently that the film adaptation of Wicked will be split into two with Cynthia Erivo as Elphaba and Ariana Grande as Glinda. Even more recently, Menzel has shared with People that she is open to appearing in the upcoming film adaptation which will be directed by Jon M. Chu.

In her interview with People regarding making a cameo appearance in Wicked, Menzel joked:

The ship may have sailed in that Menzel’s role as Elphaba is being taken over by Erivo, but possibilities on how she may factor in the movie is far from over. In fact, Chu himself has voiced how Menzel and Chenoweth’s cameos are a possibility. The film is in such early stages of development and details are sparse, but the chance of the play’s original stars making an appearance in the movie looks hopeful.

Since the announcement of a film representation of Wicked, Kristin Chenoweth has offered up ideas of her own. One suggestion is having the camera pan by her and Menzel in the background at one point. As the camera hits them, she can be seen whispering something into Menzel’s ear, a sort of shoutout to the musical’s emblematic poster tableau of Glinda and Elphaba. Fans like Jimmy Fallon hope for a more substantial appearance rather than an easter egg approach.

Another suggestion, at least for Chenoweth, is to have her play the sinister role of Wizard cohort Madame Morrible, the headmistress of Crage Hall at Shiz University. Chenoweth had said in the past that she’d be open to playing the part. It would indeed give her more screen time and showcase her voice. Only time will tell if fans get to see the two again in this classic tale.

Baymax! Trailer: The Adorable Robot from Big Hero 6 Returns in Disney+ Series

Published

on

Baymax, the cuddly nursing robot from Big Hero 6, is back to help people in the new series, Baymax!. Disney+ has released the official trailer for Baymax!, which is Walt Disney Animation Studios’ first-ever animated series and serves as a spinoff to 2014’s Big Hero 6. Baymax! premieres June 29 on Disney+ and will continue the journey of the titular companion robot as he tries to treat patients in the fictional city of San Fransokyo.

The official synopsis for Baymax! reads:

Scott Adsit reprises his voice role from Big Hero 6 as Baymax in the upcoming series, with Ryan Potter and Maya Rudolph reprising their roles as Hiro Hamada and Aunt Cass. Emily Kuroda, Lilimar, Zeno Robinson, and Jaboukie Young-White will also feature in Baymax!.

Those expecting superhero mayhem and crime-fighting should dial down their expectations as Baymax! will employ an episodic storytelling format with the huggable nurse attempting to treat a patient each episode. But that’s not to say the show won’t be any fun. As we see from the trailer, the super-friendly Baymax will cause plenty of chaos with his insistence on providing medical care to those in need, even against their wishes.

Don Hall, who co-directed Big Hero 6 with Chris Williams, will serve as the creator of Baymax!. Hall talked about the series in a statement, saying:

Big Hero 6 was the highest-grossing animated movie of 2014 and even went on to win the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. But almost a decade has passed, and we have yet to see Hiro Hamada and his band of tech-savvy superheroes on the big screen again. However, the characters’ stories continue in the 2-D animated show Big Hero 6: The Series. Created by Mark McCorkle and Bob Schooley, the show ran on Disney XD and Disney Channel from 2017 to 2021. While Big Hero 6: The Series does contradict some plot elements of the film, it acts as a satisfying follow-up and features most of the original star cast.

As for the current status of Big Hero 6 2, there is no word yet, but Zach Parrish, who served as the head of animation on the film, gave a sequel update back in 2021. Although he didn’t confirm anything, he sounded hopeful. “There’s still plenty of time. The beauty of animation is that can pick up the story at the very end of Big Hero, or we could jump in time. We could go wherever we want since it’s animation,” Parrish told Collider.

Hopefully, Baymax! will be successful enough for Disney to greenlight other spinoffs and, in the best case, a sequel. There are also chances that Baymax! could open the door for more Disney+ animated series.
