1. That's great!
2. Cool, just make it for a slightly more mature child audience unlike IRL.
3. Favreau should direct for my money.
4. Called it.
 
Amazing job @OldNavy1988 on the Sword of the Stone remake! But Disney's two other films Robots and The Snow Queen, starred Michelle Trachtenberg and Joan Cusack (OTL it was Ice Princess) is on the way. Hollywood Pictures' (OTL Disney made the film) Valiant is soaring onto its wings this month. And Touchstone/Dimension's Sin City, Hollywood's SpyHunter 2: The State of the Union and 20th Century-Fox's (OTL Touchstone made the film) The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is on the wings.
Which characters are Michelle Trachtenberg and Joan Cusack supposed to play in the Snow Queen remake?

Paramount CEO Rob Reiner on the Chipmunk purchase:

" The Chipmunks have been a popular staple of the Paramount Pinnacle since it first opened in 1995. Now, we have an opportunity to expand the Chipmunk mythos on screens big and small. Fans can expect a new album in 2006 and a new movie in 2007."

When Congress asked Walt Disney, Jr. to explain why Harvey Weinstein has been left out of the Hall of Presidents.
Junior: "My feud with Weinstein has to do with his ties with both Rupert Murdoch and John Kricfalusi in the late Eighties and early Nineties. When FART went after SBC over the content of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in '89, Murdoch and Weinstein were interested in brining the property to what was then Sky Channel America. That same year, when I met with Kevin Eastman, Peter Laird and their licensing agent Mark Freedman, it was a now-or-never situation for us. If we didn't buy the majority stake in that franchise, News Corp would've bought it with the intent of stripping Mr. Eastman and Mr. Laird of their final approval of all Turtle projects from that point on. [1] A year or so after we got the Turtles, we quietly took Ted Bundy's animatronic out of the Hall of Presidents when his past crime sprees came to light. Within the first year he was in office, President Weinstein took cheap shots at my daughter's bladder incontinence difficulties during a speech at NYU's film school. Also, even before running for president, Harvey has repeatedly accused my late father of antisemitism, which is obviously not true."

Warner Bros. finds voices for "Bears"
Warner Bros. confirms that Papa Bear will be voiced by John Goodman. Haley and Emily Osment will voice Brother and Sister Bear respectively. Ruth Buzzi will return as Mama Bear, having voiced the character in a previous Saturday morning series produced by Hanna-Barbera in the mid-Eighties.

[1] In the original As Dreamers Do thread, I heard one user say they would've sworn off the TMNT property had it fell into Murdoch and Weinstein's hands.

Before I get to Revenge of the Sith, are there any other movies in March or April 2005 that you guys want me to cover?
I'll cover Columbia's Guess Who, Destination Films' D.E.B.S., Miss Congeniality 2, Hollywood Pictures' Valiant, Turner's Beauty Shop, Touchstone's Sin City, Lionsgate's (OTL Paramount made the movie) Sahara, Carolco's The Amityville Horror remake, Touchstone's A Lot Like Love, TriStar's (OTL Touchstone made the film) The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and Gramercy Pictures' The Interpreter.
Because Steven Spielberg is busy directing Revenge of the Sith, I'll have Gary Ross to direct a remake of War of the Worlds. But Vanguard Animation has potential in affiliating the company with Bally's Hollywood Pictures.

[1] In the original As Dreamers Do thread, I heard one user say they would've sworn off the TMNT property had it fell into Murdoch and Weinstein's hands.
1: It can't be worse than the OTL Fox film series.
2: Between those reasons alone, I feel like Walt Jr. was in the right to exclude him. Recent politics-related news about Weinstein aside, like how he somehow stopped the Twin Towers from falling, from a media perspective, it's hard to like the guy.
3: While I suggested having the Osment siblings voice the Bear cubs, John Goodman as Papa and Ruth Buzzi reprising her role as Mama are actually perfect casting roles for the time. Heck, Goodman himself played the part of Baloo IOTL in The Jungle Book 2, and unlike the other VAs for the character, he's still alive.
