Disney is further capitalising on the popularity of its live-action projects and this time around they’re producing a new take on Lady and the Tramp. The new film based on the classic animated film will see Tessa Thompson and Justin Theroux voice the lead characters. Director Charlie Bean is tasked in bringing this movie to life with the aid of some real canine stars and computer wizardry. Also lending their voices to the characters of the film are Janelle Monáe, Sam Elliott and Benedict Wong. Lady and the Tramp will premiere on Disney+ later this year.

Djimon Hounsou To Star In A Quiet Place 2
The upcoming sequel to A Quiet Place will see Djimon Hounsou joining the cast. The actor will fill in for Brian Tyree Henry, who had to leave the production due to scheduling issues. John Krasinski is returning to helm the film. A Quiet Place 2 is rounded up by Emily Blunt, Noah Jupe, Millicent Simmonds and Cillian Murphy. The original film was a massive sleeper hit and revolved around monsters who were alerted to sound. The end of the film teased more human survivors, which may lead into the storyline for the sequel.

Aladdin Sequel
After pulling in over a billion dollars at the box-office, Disney is now mulling plans for a sequel to its live-action smash hit, Aladdin. The Guy Ritchie film has pulled in the crowds all over the world, and has become the third-highest grossing film amongst Disney’s live-action franchise. A sequel won’t be too farfetched as the Disney has released two follow-up films, albeit direct-to-video, after the animated classic. Both The Return of Jafar and Aladdin and the King of Thieves, could well provide a suitable story idea to potentially spawn this sequel idea at Disney.

Henry Golding To Star In Snake Eyes
The upcoming G.I. Joe spinoff will see Henry Golding star as the mysterious ninja warrior. Ray Park played the role in the previous two G.I. Joe films. The spinoff will likely be an origins story, which will most likely see the character’s roots in martial arts brought to light. The story reportedly centres on Snake Eyes joining a ninja clan as a means of seeking revenge for the death of his father.  Robert Schwentke (Divergent) is directing the film. The film is scheduled to hit cinemas in 2020.

Toy Story 4 Makes A Billion
Disney officially rules the global box-office with another film that has crossed the USD1 billion threshold. Toy Story 4 broke that barrier at the end of last week raking in USD1,00.1 million, making it the fifth Disney film to do so this year. Captain Marvel, Aladdin and The Lion King have all pulled in over a billion dollars with Avengers: Endgame raking in well over USD2 billion. Toy Story 4 however will likely not be the last film this year to make over a billion as Disney still has film like Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and Frozen II coming out later this year.
