Hospital Transforms Kids' Wheelchairs Into Dream Halloween Costumes: 'This Should Be Magical for Everyone'

  • PEOPLE.com
Trick-or-treating while in a wheelchair wasn’t easy last year for 5-year-old Penny Ryan, who had to wait on the sidewalk for her siblings to bring her candy, then try to catch up with friends in her Sandy, Utah, neighborhood.

“Just maneuvering the wheelchair and trying to figure out how to incorporate it into a costume was difficult,” says the preschooler’s mom, Ashley Ryan, 34, a mother of three. “And a lot of times, Penny felt as though as she was watching the fun from the sidelines.”

This year, things are different, thanks to staffers and volunteers at Shriner’s

While I believe Sarah Silverman can be pretty hit-or-miss, I do genuinely like her in things. She was great in Wreck-it Ralph, and did a pretty good job in the upcoming Battle Of The Sexes. I also like her stand-up, which is why I'm looking forward to her upcoming Hulu series I Love You, America. Here's the official synopsis: From inciting treason to telling poop jokes, Sarah Silverman has created her fair... Read More...

Disney's Jack and the Beanstalk Animated Movie Is Dead

Disney's Jack and the Beanstalk Animated Movie Is Dead
After spending more than two years in development, Disney is giving the axe to its Jack and the Beanstalk project Gigantic. Disney has yanked the November 25, 2020 release date for this Jack and the Beanstalk musical, with the studio stating that they hit a creative wall, so to speak, with the project. Here's what Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios president Ed Catmull had to say about why they pulled the plug on Gigantic.

"It's impossible to know when we begin a project how the creative process will unfold, and sometimes, no matter how much we love an idea or how much heart goes into it, we find that it just isn't working. With Gigantic, we've come to that point, and although it's a difficult decision, we are ending active development for now. We are focusing our energies on another project that has been in the works, which we'll be sharing more about soon,

Disney Animation Ditches Jack and the Beanstalk Movie ‘Gigantic’

Disney Animation Ditches Jack and the Beanstalk Movie ‘Gigantic’
Walt Disney Animation Studios has dropped development of “Gigantic,” its adaptation of the classic fairy tale “Jack and the Beanstalk.”

“Sometimes, no matter how much we love an idea or how much heart goes into it, we find that it just isn’t working,” said Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios president Ed Catmull.”With ‘Gigantic,’ we’ve come to that point, and although it’s a difficult decision, we are ending active development for now. We are focusing our energies on another project that has been in the works, which we’ll be sharing more about soon, now set for Thanksgiving 2020.”

Disney had announced “Gigantic” at the studio’s D23 Expo in 2015 with “Tangled’s” Nathan Greno directing and Dorothy McKim producing. “Frozen” songwriters Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez were on board to write the music for the film with husband-wife singing one of the songs at the event.

Battle of the Sexes movie review: totally ace

MaryAnn’s quick take… An essential history lesson with a smart smack of relevance for today (because feminism always has to be relitigated). It’s also warm, funny, and hugely entertaining. I’m “biast” (pro): I’m desperate for movies about women

I’m “biast” (con): not a sports fan at all

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

That saying about those not remembering the past being condemned to repeat it? Of course it’s true… but sometimes it’s not an accident that the past gets forgotten. Sometimes the squashing of history — and the continuation of history into the present — is deliberate. Feminists know this: Women are constantly having to reinvent feminism, refight the same battles, because they don’t stay won. A brief moment of small triumph very quickly gets drowned out by major cultural pushback; women may savor victory only long enough

There's a Reason the Actress Behind Pocahontas Looks So Much Like Her Character

  • BuzzSugar
Can you believe it has been 22 years since Walt Disney Pictures gifted us with the animated film Pocahontas? Neither can we, and it's honestly making us super nostalgic. While we still remember every single word to "Colors of the Wind," most fans probably don't know who voiced the original character. Well, plot twist: it was actually two people. While Tony-nominee Judy Kuhn lent her singing voice for the role, Irene Bedard was the main inspiration behind the Disney princess. Not only did the Native American actress voice Pocahontas, but she was also the physical model for the character. And the Disney magic doesn't end there. Bedard, along with several other princesses, will star in the upcoming the Wreck-It Ralph sequel in March 2018.

The Emoji Movie Review

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Hannah Woodhead

Generally speaking, most titles at least have some redeeming features if you squint hard enough, or they manage to slip into so-bad-it’s-kind-of-good territory. Yet once in a while, something comes along that’s so ill-conceived, there’s no other phrase for it: The Emoji Movie is just bad.

In your smartphone exists a world called Textopolis (apparently that’s the best they could come up with), where all the emojis live. These emojis have one job and one job alone: portraying the emotion or item that they’re assigned. Our protagonist is a ‘Meh’ emoji called Gene, who is unable to stick to being ‘Meh’, much to his parents’ chagrin. With the help of an obnoxious high-five emoji voiced by James Corden, he sets out to locate a hacker emoji (eh?) who can help him get ‘reprogrammed’.

Straight off the bat, there are striking similarities to Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph.

T.J. Miller, James Corden Tout ‘The Emoji Movie’s’ ‘Feminist Agenda’

The reviews collectively called the movie “meh,” a nod to Miller’s character, and panned the pointless and seemingly unrelated plot. Others called out the unnecessary product integration with Spotify, Candy Crush, and Crackle (owned by the film’s distributor, Sony).

Here’s what the critics are saying:

Variety‘s Owen Gleiberman:

“The bad news is that ‘The Emoji Movie’ really is meh. There have been worse ideas, but in this case the execution isn’t good enough to bring the notion of an emoji movie to funky, surprising
