Big news from our friends in Emeryville, Disney•Pixar’s “Inside Out” is heading to the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival for its World Premiere. They’ve also shared a brand new clip from the film.

Academy Award winner Pete Docter, who directed Disney•Pixar’s “Up” (the first animated film ever to be the Festival’s Opening-Ceremony film), helms “Inside Out,” an original new movie from Pixar Animation Studios. Docter, producer Jonas Rivera (“Up”), and co-director Ronnie Del Carmen (“Up”) will be on hand in Cannes, along with members of the all-star English-language voice cast.

“We are overjoyed at being included in this year’s official selection at Cannes,” said Docter. “With ‘Inside Out,’ we spent years imagining – and then building – never-before-seen settings and characters within the mind. It was an incredible, fun and exciting challenge and now we can’t wait to share it with the world.”

In this exclusive clip from the movie, Joy works with the other emotions to prepare for Riley’s first day at a new school. It’s a big moment:

Movie synopsis below:

IntoTheWoods-cinderella-kendrick

The Stephen Sondheim musical “Into the Woods” features a modern look at beloved fairy tales, with a bit of a twist. This makes it perfect territory for Disney, which lately has been adding its own twist to fairy tales on both the big screen (Frozen, Tangled) and small (Once Upon A Time on ABC).

Here’s a new dark clip (literally dark since it happens at midnight) featuring a small bit of the song “Steps of the Palace” sung by Anna Kendrick as Cinderella.

(note entire song is available to listen to below the jump)

“Into the Woods” is a modern twist on several of the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, intertwining the plots of a few choice stories and exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests. This humorous and heartfelt musical follows the classic tales of Cinderella (Anna Kendrick), Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), Jack and the Beanstalk (Daniel Huttlestone), and Rapunzel (MacKenzie Mauzy), all tied together by an original story involving a Baker and his Wife (James Corden and Emily Blunt), their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the Witch (Meryl Streep), who has put a curse on them.

Rob Marshall, the acclaimed filmmaker behind the Academy Award-winning musical “Chicago” and Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” directs the film, which is based on the Tony-winning original musical by James Lapine, who also penned the screenplay, and legendary composer Stephen Sondheim, who provides the music and lyrics.

“Into the Woods” will be released in theaters December 25, 2014. Will you be seeing it in theaters?

We’re now just a few days away from the opening of Disney’s next movie “Alexander and The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.” Disney has shared the following new clips from the movie.

Hashtag blessed? I think that’s called foreshadowing.

The day continues in another clip from the movie

and then.. things take a turn for the worse

“Anyone who says there is no such thing as a bad day, hasn’t had one.” Is that true for your family?

The fine folks at Disney movie marketing have decided to release another featurette for Maleficent giving us just a slightly wider slice of the film than the previous featurettes. This one focuses on the battle between light and dark that goes on in the kingdom, in the characters, and in the movie:

Also released was a new clip from the film featuring that most iconic of Sleeping Beauty moments when Princess Aurora pricks her finger on the spinning wheel and falls into a sleep-like death.

Star Wars Rebels is the first real attempt at a new story set in the Star Wars Universe since Disney took the reigns of the property from George Lucas. And now we get our first look at the series via this clip revealed at WonderCon this last week. The short preview clip features an introduction from voice actress Vanessa Marshall and an exciting sequence from the upcoming animated series.

In the clip, Hera, captain of the Ghost, pilots her starship during a battle with two TIE fighters. A droid named Chopper delivers a message from the Jedi Kanan, currently engaging the TIEs in the top turret. The Jedi is apparently displeased with Hera’s maneuvering. In response, she takes matters into her own hands.

I love the antics of Chopper the droid. Star Wars Rebels is coming to Disney XD later this year.

Also new from Star Wars Rebels this week is a short video interview with Star Wars composer Kevin Kiner.
