'The Jungle Book': Bill Murray will sing!

Rudyard Kipling’s classic tales of an Indian boy raised by wolves, first published as a series in the late 19th century, has been adapted more than a dozen times. But Walt Disney’s 1967 animated musical—his last—set the gold standard. Now, director Jon Favreau (Iron Man) is giving Mowgli and his animal pals a 21st-century tech update. Newcomer Neel Sethi, 10, plays Mowgli, and there’s a lot riding on those young shoulders. Not only does he do his own tree-climbing—”A 10-year-old in a loin cloth is hard to double with a stuntman,” Favreau says— but he’s also the only live-action actor in a performance-capture spectacle that’s more Avatar than The Little Mermaid, with photo-real talking animals.

Best of 2014: An oral history of Baymax's 'Big Hero 6' fist bump

The best part of Big Hero 6—the awesomely odd exploding-fist sound cuddly robot Baymax makes when bumping knuckles with his pal Hiro—comes as a delightful surprise for audiences…which is fitting, since it was initially received the same way by the guys who actually made the film. “I remember having that feeling of like, ‘That’s really weird and strange, and it’ll never make it into the movie,” says co-writer Robert Baird, who was listening when the voice of Baymax (30 Rock alum Scott Adsit) loosed his first “balalalalalala.”

Of course, there’s more to the story than that. It takes a village to make an animated movie—which is why EW chatted with four separate Big Hero crew members to get the full story behind the fist-bump. Click here for more of EW.com’s Best of 2014 coverage.

Idina Menzel says 'Frozen' sequel is in the works

Frozen is returning to theaters in the form of a six-minute short — and it might be returning to theaters someday as a longer-than-six-minutes sequel.

The Telegraph recently asked Idina Menzel, singer of the Academy Award-winning Frozen song “Let It Go,” what she could say about rumors claiming a Frozen sequel and stage musical are on their way. “That they’re all in the works,” she replied, “ha ha!”

She went on to say she’s not sure if she’ll be involved with the stage musical, but will be part of “the movie, hopefully.” “I’m just going along for the ride,” she said.  READ FULL STORY

cinderella-poster

Once upon a time, in a land far, far, away Sir Kenneth Branagh directed a new, live-action version of Cinderella. Well, technically, he made it in London last year. But this fresh, Disney-backed take on the beloved talewhich is released on March 13 next year does have what sounds like a fairytale cast, with Cate Blanchett as the evil stepmother Lady Tremaine, Helena Bonham-Carter as the Fairy Godmother, Game of Thrones star Richard Madden as the Prince, Derek Jacobi as the King, Stellan Skarsgård as the King’s scheming adviser (is there really any other kind?), and Downton Abbey actress Lily James as Ella.

What 'Big Hero 6' could have learned from 'The Incredibles'

Ten years ago this month, Brad Bird’s animated adventure film The Incredibles debuted—and with its winning, funny story about a married pair of washed-up superheroes trying to raise kids and save the world at the same time, it immediately joined the canon of Disney/Pixar insta-classics.

Almost exactly one decade later, Disney released Big Hero 6, another story about a team of animated heroes. It’s not hard to spot connections between the two: They share similar color schemes and aesthetics, for example, and they both feature a titular group of crime-fighters trying to get (or regain) a grip on their abilities while battling a self-styled supervillain out for revenge.

But there’s plenty that separates the two films, besides a decade of animation advancements—and Big Hero 6 may have done well to lift more from its predecessor.

Pop-culture seems covered in J.M. Barrie’s fairy dust right now, what with NBC’s live stage-musical of Peter Pan scheduled for Dec. 4.
