‘The New Mutants’ Is At Last On It’s Way!

The New Mutants was supposed to come out in 2018, but was pushed to this year. With reshoots done and a new trailer out The New Mutants is set to be released this spring in April.

One thing I really enjoyed about the very first trailer way back when was the vibe to it. It was incredibly different to any X-Men movie we’ve gotten, it was dark and took on more serious tone. Although Logan had the same feel, New Mutants looked like a straight up psychological horror, and I was down. In the trailer we see a clear view of our protagonist and side characters. We also get more glimpses of their powers.

We’ve seen an array of mutant powers from shape shifting, flying, to teleporting and they all seemed incredibly cool, but one mutant that has been highlighted to having frightening powers was Rogue. With a single touch she could literally suck the life out of anyone. Hopefully we’ll get to explore these new mutants powers in the same way we did with her. That we will get to see how terrifying some mutant powers can be.

 

 

In the trailer, the mutants are at an asylum which gives a new and interesting location. It’s literally the opposite of Xavier’s school, which adds a different dynamic. Instead of seeing young mutants learn and practice their powers, we see having to repress them.

But I am a bit weary that the movie is rated PG-13. Logan being rated R proved that with a higher rating a comic movie could capture a more mature tone and absolutely better action. It is also taking a bit of a Joker route where it’s connected to the established X-Men universe but not directly, which leads room to surprise us.

The Mulan Trailer Is Here!

The full trailer for the March 2020 live action remake of Disney’s Mulan has finally dropped, and I think I might still be willing to check out the movie when it hits theaters. When it was first announced that Mulan was being remade, everyone was thinking, “Here we go.” Then we heard that Shang wouldn’t be in it, or Mushu and that it wouldn’t be a musical, I, personally, was floored.

 

 

Mulan is one of my favorite Disney movies for the music and singing. Mushu is undoubtedly one of the funniest characters in the movie and has his own journey to go on. He and Mulan’s relationship works because they have to realize that who they are is enough and that they can do great things as themselves.  So a lot of people were not too keen on ever seeing this movie.

But when the teaser trailer came out it, honestly piqued my interest. The teaser looked gorgeous and I had a spark of hope even though I was still wary. The full trailer is out and it looks interesting. There’s a shapeshifting witch so…that’s a little weird. Instead of fighting Shan Yu there is another evil army leader, named Bori Khan that will be the main antagonist. Not a bad change so okay. Again, it looks beautifully done but that’s all I can really say about it.

It could be a hallow remake where they try to do things exactly from the cartoon-like The Lion King (2019) or they could add new concepts and ideas but some of which are unneeded or flop for me entirely, i.e Aladdin (2019) and Beauty and The Beast (2017).

 

All we can do is what until March I guess or until it eventually comes on Disney +.

‘Treasure Planet’: Disney’s Unique Adaptation of the Classic Novel

Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island is one of the most well-known adventure novels in all of literature. The story of a young Jim Hawkins on a quest to find the mysterious Treasure Island has been adapted numerous times over the years. One of the most unique adaptations of this famous work came from Disney on this day in 2002.

Treasure Planet was an animated film from the directors of Aladdin, Hercules and The Little Mermaid. It features the same plot as the novel, but uses a sci-fi setting instead of a traditional tropical island setting like the novel.

Hawkins remains the same, but many characters were changed for the adaptation. John Silver, the main antagonist, is made into a cyborg. Dr. Livesey and Dr. Trelawney are combined into a new character: Dr. Delbert Doppler, an anthropomorphic dog. Captain Alexander Smollett is changed to Captain Amelia, a female talking cat alien. Ben Gunn is turned into a robot called B.E.N. (Bio-Electronic Navigator). These characters are voiced by an all-star cast featuring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Emma Thompson, Martin Short and Laurie Metcalf.

Sailing on pirate ships outfitted with rockets, the crew blasts off across the galaxy to search for the long lost Treasure Planet. The film employs a unique animation style that blends 2D-animated characters with 3D-animated settings.

Despite a unique look, a classic tale, and a great cast, Treasure Planet was a box office failure, grossing only $100 million against a $140 million dollar budget. The film’s low returns derailed any plans for a sequel. The film’s failure can be attributed to lukewarm reviews and opening a week after Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.

 

 

But despite being forgotten very quickly during release, Treasure Planet has garnered a cult following and strong DVD sales over the years. It is currently available to stream on Disney+.

Any fan of the classic Treasure Island should check out this sci-fi adaptation.
