Disney have released another trailer for the live action remake of Lady and the Tramp and we have goosebumps. The classic Disney tale is one of our all time favourites so it’s safe to say we’re very excited about the pending release.

Directed by Charlie Bean, produced by Bringham Taylor and written by Andrew Bujalski, this live-action remake of Lady and the Tramp is bound get tails wagging when it airs in November. 

This time, the small screen will have the honour of bringing us this widely anticipated film and thankfully, us Disney-dog-lovers won’t have to wait too long. On November 12, 2019, the film will be available on #Disney+, the new streaming platform set to compete with the likes of Netflix and Hayu.

The cast of the live action Lady and the Tramp is better than we could’ve expected with Tessa Thompson voicing Lady and Justin Theroux voicing Tramp.

A Star is Born’s Sam Elliot will be voicing Trusty, the trustworthy bloodhound with no sense of smell, a character who plays a key role in the rescue of Tramp from the dogcatcher.

The hilarious Ashley Jensen will voice Jock, the Scottish terrier who lives next door to Lady. We are super excited for this gender swap, as Jensen’s gorgeous Scottish twang seems made for the role of Jock. 

Adding to this star-studded cast is Benedict Wong, who will lend his voice to Bull, the adorable Bulldog from the pound.  

The icon that is Janelle Monáe will be taking on the legendary song He’s a Tramp, originally sung by Peggy Lee in the 1955 animation. Janelle Monáe voice seems ideal for the sultry Tibetan spaniel, Peg who sings the song to Lady when she spends a night in the pound.

We are a little bit too excited about the Lizzie McGuire reboot, but the original show played such a huge part in our younger years so can you blame us? Lizzie was like the cool older sister we always wanted and now she is back to help guide us through adulthood.

Star of the hit Disney series, Hilary Duff opened up about the new show and it sounds like it is going to be better than ever before.

In an interview with E! News, Hilary dropped a couple of hints about the upcoming episodes.

She said, “I have said this before, but for me coming back when she's 30 and she's not in a marriage and she's not having a baby and she's not doing all the things that I have already done in my life, that story is really exciting for me.”

"I think to myself, where can we go? What are the struggles of a 30-year-old right now? What are the pressures that life throws in front of a woman who is 30 and doesn't have all the things yet? 

“And for me, that's Lizzie McGuire, she had those struggles in middle school where she didn't have a place where she fits in and you know always on the struggle bus, but she's also your best friend, and that's exactly what I want to target and hit home again—is being there for girls in this time of their life." 

The actress said there are endless opportunities for this new show. Could Lizzie become a mum or maybe she’ll face fertility struggles?

“Maybe there is something bad happening on her 30th birthday in the first episode? Maybe she's going to be in her childhood bedroom in the first episode? I don't know! There's all this fun! We want to give fans what they want, but we also want to have a completely new show,” she added.

Peter Pan is one of our all time favourite Disney movies, but it looks like the classic has some major competition as the story will be reinvented in The Lost Girls.

The film adaption of Laurie Fox’s novel sounds incredible, especially because of the stellar cast involved. Emma Thompson, Ellen Burstyn Gaia Wise will play the leads in this dark version of Peter Pan.

So what is The Lost Girls all about?

In The Lost Girls, Peter Pan is painted as the villain. The boy who never wants to grow up isn’t the charming character we grew up with in this adaption. The Darling girls are all struggling after their adventures with Peter.

Their view of men has been tainted by Peter Pan and they’re desperate to escape the hold he has on them.

Deadline reports, “Like her grandmother (Ellen Burstyn) and her mother Jane (Emma Thompson), Wendy must escape Pan’s hold on her and the promises he desperately wants her to keep. As her daughter Berry (Gaia Wise) comes into Peter’s orbit, Wendy must fight to save her relationship with her daughter while reconciling her legacy.”

Peter will be shown in a completely different light in this movie and we honestly can’t wait to see it. He will be transformed from a charismatic, adventurous character to a selfish and manipulative villain in The Lost Girls.

This corrupted fairytale is going to be one of the greatest movies, especially with queen, Emma Thompson involved. There’s no word on a release date yet but watch this space.

Former Disney and X-Factor US star Ricky Garcia is suing his former manager for alleged rape, according to reports by TMZ and DailyMail.com.

The actor and singer found fame after he was chosen by Simon Cowell to form a boyband on the talent show, but the 20-year-old has accused Joby Harte of sexual assault and rape from the age of 12 onwards.

In documents filed by attorney Ben Meiselas of Geragos and Geragos, Garcia claims that Harte and his company Hot Rock Media used the ‘well-worn paedophile playbook of grooming and seduction’ to consistently get him ‘black out drunk’ only for Ricky to wake up in the morning beside him naked. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by RG (@realrickygarcia) on

"Defendant Harte, the ringleader, employed the well-worn paedophile playbook of grooming and seduction. He targeted an economically and emotionally vulnerable pre-teen and his parents. He then groomed and seduced the child’s mother to have her lay down her defences and give him unfettered access to her son, making her an unwitting accomplice to his depravity," the documents reportedly state.

Garcia starred in Disney’s Best Friends Whenever, also alleges that Harte  groomed him into a ‘sexual plaything that could be passed around his friends in the business’, including producer Nils Larsen. The claims have been categorically denied by Larsen and ex-APA agent Tyler Grasham in the ‘malicious prosecution’,

Garcia is suing Harte, Grasham, Larsen, Hot Rock Media, Cohen/Thomas Management and its partners Sheri Andersen Thomas and Paul Cohen, as well as APA. On Harte's Wikipedia page, it states that he helped to lanch ITV show Pop Idol and worked on Strictly Come Dancing.

Ricky wrote to his Instagram to tell fans that "today was one of the most difficult days of my life";

"Sadly I know my experience is just one of many and I hope my actions today will help others who experienced abuse to know that they are not alone and that there are people in this world fighting for them.

"So please if anyone is out there right now going through something even remotely similar to what I went through, please, we all need to speak out about this – yes of course I want justice for the POS that manipulated me, but more importantly this is about saving anyone else who feels like they don’t have a voice," the actor continued.

"YOU are not alone. This can happen to anyone you know. It’s just a matter of talking about this to people and letting your close ones know that it’s not okay."

He concluded the post; "So if anyone knows anyone else that’s going through this s**t as well. It’s so important to speak up for them."

Ricky auditioned for The X Factor US season three when he was just 14-years-old, before being eliminated during the boot camp round.

Simon Cowell asked him to return along with Emery Kelly and Jon Klaasen to form a trio called Forever in Your Mind. They were cut before the final 16 but were later signed to Hollywood Records.

Tyler Grasham was fired from APA in October 2017 amid sexual harassment and assault allegations from Blaise Godbe Lipman, Lucas Ozarowski and Jordan Gavaris.

In case you've been living under an early 2000s-sized rock, you're dying of excitement after hearing news of the Lizzie McGuire reboot. Yes, reboot. Because we're THAT old now. 

Hilary Duff confirmed recently that she will reprise her role as Lizzie McGuire in a Disney+ revival of the iconic show, which aired from 2001 until 2004. Three years, endless memories.

The now-31-year-old announced the news at the Disney D23 Expo, appearing on stage to reveal that our favourite 13-year-old will return as a 30-year-old interior designer apprentice in NYC.

Many of us also recall the Lizzie McGuire movie's ending, which featured a KISS between Lizzie and her longtime bestie Gordo. We predicted their eventual marriage and family, but we spoke too soon…

Gordo (played by Adam Lamberg) and the protagonist were deemed childhood sweethearts, but in the new show, 30-year-old Lizzie will be engaged to someone who ISN'T Gordo. That one hurt.

Remember when Gordo had to watch Lizzie ride off on a moped with Paolo in The Lizzie McGuire Movie and it broke our hearts? This is ten times worse than that. TEN TIMES.

“You know what, I don’t know if I was as devastated by that. I feel like them not being together is what was so good.

“It’s that one person that you’re like, 'Was he the one? Is it ever going to be?' You’re always kind of wondering. We wanted it to hurt everyone a little bit, and it’ll continue to hurt."

The upcoming series has yet to confirm if any cast members will return. He's currently working for New York's Irish Arts Center as a Development Associate, as far as we know. 

The sequel is expected to return in 2020 on Disney's new streaming service, Disney+. Irish prices are yet to be confirmed, but it's roughly six euro per month to steam from the channel.

If our hearts felt cracked and fragile before, they're smashed to smithereens now.

Just weeks on from initial reports, the Spider-Man situation remains woefully the same after Sony Pictures CEO Tony Vincinquerra confirmed that “for the moment the door is closed” on the MCU return.

Marvel Studios and Sony's financial talks have broken down, and now Tom Holland's Peter Parker will no longer be part of the MCU, with Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige now absent from Spidey's next movie.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Spider-Man: Far From Home (@spidermanmovie) on

Many fans were hoping that the impasse could be overcome, but it seems that Sony is doubling down on distancing themselves from Disney after the entertainment giant asked for 30 percent of the earnings from the next few Spidey films.

To put this in perspective, they were only earning five percent before…so it's quite the leap on Disney's part to be fair. 

Speaking at Variety’s Entertainment and Technology summit, Sony Pictures CEO dispelled fan's queries on the superhero;  “We had a great run with Kevin Feige on Spider-Man movies,” he said.

“We tried to see if there’s a way to work it out… the Marvel people are terrific people, we have great respect for them, but on the other hand we have some pretty terrific people of our own. Kevin didn’t do all the work.”

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by  (@spidermanmovie) on

He continued: “Spider-Man was fine before the event movies, did better with the event movies, and now that we have our own universe, he will play off the other characters as well. I think we’re pretty capable of doing what we have to do here.”

Sony seem confident that following the box office success of Venom and the widespread critical and public acclaim for the Oscar-winning Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, it can spin its own compelling web of spider tales.

Director Jon Favreau, the MCU the filmmaker behind Iron Man and Iron Man 2, and actor of Happy Hogan in Homecoming and Far From Home – still hopes that an agreement can be made.

“I’ve been talking to everybody about it… I’m cautiously optimistic,” he said at Variety’s summit.

“I think it’s a long way away and I think the collaboration has been really strong up to this point so I’m hopeful that there’s a way for us all to play together going forward.”

PLEASE solve this tangled web of a problem, Jon. We can't handle the idea of the adorable Tom Holland not featuring in the MCU, he stole scenes in the Avengers as Iron Man's protégé.

Every time Primark whip out a brand new Disney collection, we end up getting far too excited and buying the entire shop. It's just irresistable.

We constantly proclaim that the retailer has topped themselves with each new range, but the latest one has to be our favourite.

Primark's Dumbo and The Lion King collaborations had us fainting with the sheer excellence of it all, but Mulan has our hearts. 

From a giant tea mug (the only size we could ever want) cushions and bed spreads to tea pots and fluffy-as-f*ck throws, we want it all in our lives ASAP.

Primark recently dropped a Winnie the Pooh collection and Mickey the Mouse goodies to celebrate the character's 90th birthday, as well as Snow White treats.

Primark x Mulan mug: €7
Primark x Mulan single bedding: €17
Primark x Mulan cushion: €8
Primark x Mulan tea pot: €13.20 (£12)

The affordable price range for the Mulan collection won't be a surprise to any Primark fans.

The Mulan cushion comes in at just €8, their gorgeous single bedding costs €17, and the coveted mug offers the sweet deal of €7. *Wipes away tears* It's just so perfect.

Head down to your local store to nab the goodies before they're gone. Get down to business if you want to defeat the Huns, gals.

Sony Pictures, who own the rights to comic book character Spider-Man, have made a statement about the split with Disney which will see the webslinger no longer involved in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The company said they were "disappointed" last night by Disney's demand for a greater stake in the Spider-Man films and its proposal to reduce the involvement of Marvel president Kevin Feige in the franchise.

“Much of today’s news about Spider-Man has mischaracterised recent discussions about Kevin Feige’s involvement in the franchise,” said the statement.

“We are disappointed, but respect Disney’s decision not to have him continue as a lead producer of our next live action Spider-Man film.

“We hope this might change in the future, but understand that the many new responsibilities that Disney has given him – including all their newly added Marvel properties – do not allow time for him to work on IP they do not own," they added.

“Kevin is terrific and we are grateful for his help and guidance and appreciate the path he has helped put us on, which we will continue.”

Negotiations had been underway for numerous months between Sony and Disney over Spider-Man's future, after Disney's purchase of Marvel in 2009 for $4 billion heightened box-office dominance.

Disney had been demanding that future movies be financed evenly between the two studios, with Feige as the consultant producer.

Feige has been aligned with the Avengers series since Iron Man was released in 2008, and has been mostly credited with satisfying the franchise’s hardcore fans alongside Disney’s desire for awards and critical recognition.

Avengers: Endgame overtook Avatar last month as the highest grossing film of all time, and Black Panther became the first superhero film to win a Best Picture nomination at the Oscars last year.

Spider-Man: Far From Home, deposed Skyfall as Sony’s biggest film ever at the global box office only this week, with two more films starring Tom Holland supposedly in the works.

Major character plot holes will no doubt be the result of Sony's split with Disney, after Far From Home set up the next major Avengers storyline. Tom Holland fans are in mourning over the news, with the actor playing arguably the most popular Spidey to date.

Must they destroy everything we love? Every second of the day, it feels like we're hearing news of reboots and it's starting to genuinely upset us.

The latest reboot is set to be literally the world's favourite Christmas movie; Home Alone. 

A new streaming service called Disney+ is set to launch in America in November, but announced that Kevin McAllister will return “reimagined for a new generation”.

New versions of Night At The MuseumDiary of a Wimpy Kid and Cheaper By The Dozen are also set to be recreated, so…we march at dawn? Grab your pitchforks.

Disney+ hasn't revealed any further details, or a release date for any 20th Century Fox classics they're dabbling with.

Macaulay Culkin, who played Kevin McAllister in the original film, had something to say about the matter and we had to laugh.

"This is what an updated Home Alone would actually look like," he wrote, alongside a photo of him eating pasta on his couch, on his laptop like every one of us on Sunday nights.

He later added, "Hey Disney, call me!" Twitter were up in ARMS about the terrible news, with social media users asking; "If it ain't broke, why fix it?" It's perfection as it is.

Hannah Montana played a massive role in our lives during those awkward, pre-teen years. The show ran for five pop-filled years and we still remember every single word to Best of Both Worlds. The show brought us so much joy, many laughs, taught us about friendship, first love and fashion.

We all certainly went through a phase of wanting to dye our hair blonde, just like Hannah’s. Actress Miley Cyrus quickly became an idol and icon as the show grew in popularity year after year.

She will undoubtedly always be associated with her Disney character, but in recent years, the musician has worked incredibly hard to shed that cookie-cutter, wholesome image she had to portray during the years she spent as Disney’s golden girl.
