D23 : Carol, Double Dare

D23 : Carol, Double Dare

A Christmas Carol

Director Robert Zemeckis was on hand to present some scenes from his upcoming “Christmas Carol” redo starring Jim Carrey. Scenes included one where an ogre-sized Ghost of Christmas Present talks down to Ebenezer Scrooge, and another where we get a glimpse of a shrouded (under a ‘hood’) Ghost of Christmas Future. This looks like it’s going to be a real winner!

Disney Double Dare You

Filmmaker Guillermo del Toro announced he’d be teaming with the House of Mouse to develop films for a new label titled ‘Disney Double Dare You’. The family films will have a horror angle to them, says the “Hellboy” director. First up, “Trollhunters”. “As a director, I love to take audiences into fantastic new worlds and provide them with some anxious moments in the process”, says del Toro. “It is part of the Disney canon to create thrilling, unforgettable moments and villains in all their classic films. It is my privilege for DDY to continue in this tradition. To partner up with The Walt Disney Studios, with the support of Dick Cook and John Lasseter, is to belong to a storytelling partnership that I admire deeply. It is a true honor. I look forward to coming up with fresh and original stories that will take Disney films in a whole new direction. The emphasis is on fun, and we have some great ideas already on the storyboards.”
