Magic Tree House anime trailer

Magic Tree House Anime Trailer

Hiroshi Nishikiori’s anime adaptation of Mary Pope Osborne’s Magic Tree House children’s book series premiered in the recent Tokyo International Film Festival, several months ahead of the film’s scheduled 7th of January 2012 Japanese Release. The first book that was adapted by Nishikiori (whose past credits include Azumanga Daioh) is Dinosaurs Before Dark, which finds an 8 year old boy named Jack (voiced by the live action Sailor Mars Keiko Kitagawa) and 7 year old girl Annie (voiced by Mana Ashida of Bunny Drop) trapped in the past, particularly the Cretaceous Period, which is known to many as that period in prehistory that is filled with gigantic reptiles known as Dinosaurs. As expected, Jack and Annie meet a hungry T-rex that could have eaten them, if it wasn’t for a friendly Pteranodon’s timely save.

Disney’s D23 Expo 2011 teases The Untitled Pixar Movie About Dinosaurs

Disney's D23 Expo 2011 teases The Untitled Pixar Movie About Dinosaurs

When we’re done with Monsters, we’ll get Dinosaurs; so says Pixar at Disney’s D23 Expo 2011. This weekend, the company unveiled two new films with vague bits of teaser information, both scheduled to hit big screen after the Monsters Inc prequel, Monsters University, which hits on June 21st, 2013. The first of the two, set to be in theaters on November 27th, 2013, will focus on Dinosaurs, and was given the comically pleasing working title of The Untitled Pixar Movie About Dinosaurs. The premise, according to director Bob Peterson (who also voiced Roz from Monster’s, Inc. and UP’s dog, Dug) asks what would happen if dinosaurs never went extinct? Unfortunately for Toy Story’s Rex, the concept seems to spread past his short reach. Unfortunately, not much more is known at this time, other than the glimpses of the sneak peeks, which feature a boy, a large brontosaurus, a pterodactyl, some mosquitoes, and more. What do you think the film will be about?

Sunwoo and Cookie Jar’s Kung Fu Dino Posse to debut on CiTV

Sunwoo and Cookie Jar's Kung Fu Dino Posse to debut on CiTV

Skor has thawed out. And, of course, he’s evil. And mad. What do you do in situations like this? Call the Kung Fu Dino Posse, and put them to the task of stopping Skor and his bumbling brother from discovering the magical gems hidden through out the city. Sounds perfectly reasonable (and fun!) to us! The animated series has begun making a splash in a number of Asian and European areas, with the UK up next on it’s target list. Plans have already inked to bring the toon to CiTV, so fans there can watch the adventures of the four dinosaurs. Created by Peter M Lenkov, the prehistoric battle against the forces of evil picks up where it left off (ice) ages ago, and is produced by a team of powerhouses: Sunwoo Korea, Sunwoo Singapore, Optix Entertainment, and Cookie Jar Entertainment.
