ZOOTOPIA – Pictured (L-R): Nick Wilde, Judy Hopps. "It's a nod to the great Disney animated animal films we all grew up with, but with a funny, contemporary twist," said director Rich Moore (“Wreck-It Ralph,” “The Simpsons”). "Our artists and animators did tons of research to integrate true animal behaviors into each of our characters. The world of Zootopia is fantastic, infused with international flavor that will be relatable to everyone.” ©2015 Disney. All Rights Reserved.

Director Jon Favreau Takes Audiences On a Wild Ride Back to the Jungle #JungleBook

Jungle Book Takes Audiences on a Wild Ride.

By Catheryn

“Many strange tales are told of this Jungle.
But none so strange as the tale of the cub we called Mowgli” … ~ Bagheera

I am fascinated how a film can, when done correctly, invoke feelings within such a short amount of time. Happiness, loss, pride and true emotional investment to the stories characters, how often can you say a film has done this for you? I was invited by Disney to get a sneak peak of the soon to be released The Jungle Book last month, here’s a little on what to expect from this cutting edge film that I am very excited to see with my family!

In this day of computer generated everything, feelings sometimes get lost in the over the top spectacle of it all. Things are just so far beyond belief sometimes that you are literally too busy trying to process it all. Mash the two together, the ability to create something that stirs emotions yet is beyond reality and is totally believable, That’s is The Jungle Book.

A few words from the creative genius behind The Jungle Book Jon Favreau and Visual effects supervisor Rob Legato.

“When I think about Disney’s legacy, I relate to Walt’s original dream,” says director Jon Favreau.

Walt Disney’s work has influenced my work. He was considered high-tech for the time. He was the first person who locked soundtrack with picture, so the characters
were perfectly choreographed to the musical score—something that absolutely blew
people’s minds. Disney was on the cutting edge of technology.”

According to the director, every choice was made with the audience in mind. “The
audience has to be taken on a ride. They want thrills, adventure, excitement, laughs.
And they want emotion. I tried to make a movie that I’d want to see. 
There’s a flavor to it” added Favreau referring to the musical score and it “Ticked all the boxes” when it came to his memories of the Original Disney classic.

Employing the very latest iteration of movie magic, which would allow his director the freedom to push the limits of what’s possible in film making. “It’s a photo-real film grounded in the real world,” says Legato. “There’s something very interesting about that.” He also went on to add,

“The audience will feel the grandeur of the Indian jungle,” says Legato. “They’ll
experience this exotic land. That’s part of the fun of going to the movies—seeing a
place you’ve never seen before. Living it. Walking through it.”

My initial thought after the viewing and the Q & A session, I was beyond impressed with the visual journey I know this film is going to take us all on. I truely enjoyed listening to the Director Jon Favreau and the visual effects supervisor Rob Legato describe their passion for the film and their efforts on this project in such laymen’s terms, I was truly drawn in and could have listened to them both all afternoon.

This being my first ever insider preview of an incomplete film, well I hadn’t any idea what I was in for or any idea of just how interesting it all is!  The sheer talent that is needed to be a part of a team on such a project is amazing. I was enthralled and hung on every word shared with us. I now have the greatest appreciation for all the crafts involved, not just those who perform in front of the camera.

It takes a very special mind and a great amount of talent as Jon Favreau has. To say that he had some big shoes to fill creating a new Jungle book after the genius of Walt Disney is an understatement. The technologies though worlds apart in creating both the original and the new to be released film truly show that no matter the technology, the film must have a heart and a soul to bring it to life, I’m pleased to say that in my opinion The Jungle Book is Reborn!

The Jungle Book movie is based on Rudyard Kipling’s timeless stories while being inspired by Disney’s 1967 animated classic. The film features state-of the-art technology that immerses the audience while seamlessly blending live-action along with photorealistic CGI animals and environments. Transporting movie goers using up-to-the-minute technology and storytelling techniques in an enchanting and lush world, it’s an adventure you have to see to believe!

Here’s one of the trailers for the film THE JUNGLE BOOK to tide you over till it’s opening in theatres everywhere in 3D, RealD 3D, and IMAX 3D on April 15th!

Hugh Jackman and Taron Egerton in Eddie the Eagle! #EddieTheEagle #FlyLikeEddie

Eddie the Eagle

By Erin

*I attended as media for purposes of this post*


Did you ever have a childhood dream that everyone around you thought you were crazy for? I know I have. Eddie the Eagle was inspired by true events of one child’s “crazy” dream. A feel-good story about Michael “Eddie” Edwards (Taron Egerton), who is an unlikely but very courageous British ski-jumper who never stopped believing in himself – even when an entire nation was counting him out as one big joke.  After some major coaxing, he gets some help from a rebellious yet charismatic coach (Hugh Jackman) and Eddie takes the challenge  head on and wins the hearts of sports fans around the world by making an improbable and historic showing at the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics.  From the producers of Kingsman: The Secret Service, Eddie the Eagle stars Taron Egerton as Eddie, the loveable underdog with a never say die attitude.


After viewing the film, I had the chance to interview both Hugh Jackman and Taron Egerton about their parts in Eddie the Eagle. A truly inspirational story, I was curious to know what drew in both actors into this story.

Hugh Jackman told us that he always loved the story. He was just 19 when Eddie  jumped in Australia and was captivated by him, he became a folk hero in Australia. “It taps into everybody’s desire to find the thing they love, to overcome whatever obstacles they are going to overcome to do it and as a parent now, I watch that movie and I am so thrilled my kids are seeing a movie that finally says you don’t actually have to win to be a winner.  You have to give with your heart, you have to give it all you got, and you got to love it.  That’s it.  It’s okay.  That’s enough.  You don’t actually have to be LeBron James, you can be the school teacher down the road and be a winner.  You know what I mean?  That’s what I love about it.”


Taron Egerton liked the challenge that the roll presented, in terms of acting and he is a big fan of Hugh and Fletcher. “I was a huge fan of Dexter Fletcher our director.  His movies are brilliant.  Matthew Vaughn [producer] who I did Kingsman with and of course Hugh, to work with someone who I admire so much was a great opportunity, it’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.”


Since the movie is inspired by a true story did they get to meet the real Eddie?

Yes! Of course! 😉

They had the opportunity to meet the real life Eddie. Both actors were delighted at the chance to meet with this inspirational athlete. Egerton told us  that he’s quite an amazing guy to hear speak and was a very inspiring, engaging chap. They both also got to view the film for the first time with Eddie. Egerton was even sitting right next to him, nervous about if he would like the film or not! Egerton shared with us,”I was shaking and wiping my eyes.  That is pretty brutal, but he loved it.  He cried, he brought his friends and his family.  Imagine how nervous you would be watching your film.” Jackman was happy to add,I was worried when he was crying at the end of the film, but no, he loved it, he absolutely loved it.  It was fantastic.”


After chatting with the stars of the film, we took a group shot. It was a real pleasure getting to learn more and gain some more insight about the characters that they play and the all around story of how this film came to be. It was a very moving and inspirational experience. So, don’t EVER give up on your dreams!


Make sure you don’t miss out on this one! Soaring into theaters February 26th!!
