Licensing Expo Bits


The Licensing Expo just began in Las Vegas. I'll update this when more is revealed over the next few days...

June 9th - 4:26 PM EST: Of course, this is a prime spot for animated movie tidbits... So far, a lot of things have already been revealed. ComingSoon.net is usually on a roll when it comes to this, so a lot of the images will come from them...

Anyways...

On the Blue Sky end... Ice Age 5 is titled Ice Age: Collision Course. Here's the logo for the soon-to-be $700 million grossing film...


That's it for them, for now. Nothing on Ferdinand or Anubis...

On Illumination's end, first looks at the characters from next summer's The Secret Life of Pets other than the three that were revealed last year (sans Duke and Snowball)...




I expect the trailer to show up before Minions, I mean, why else wouldn't it? The character designs are nice. They're basically Despicable Me pets, but I'm not complaining, I always liked that film series' style...

Nothing on the Disney, Pixar, or DreamWorks end other than a Trolls tease from the latter of the three. However, it's nothing special, just an image of a troll doll's hairdo. No actual first look at the film or anything...

As for Paramount... Well, I'm reckoning this particular title might be a Paramount Animation film...


I haven't seen a Paramount release titled Amusement Park anywhere, so I'm assuming this is completely new. Given the look of the logo and the title, I think this could be one of the animation studio's mystery releases... Maybe. They are highly secretive, so who knows...

Hasbro's still gung-ho about their My Little Pony movie. 2017 is still the target year...


Not really animation, but here's something for Disney live-action's The BFG, which is being directed by Steven Spielberg. One of the only live-action Disney films I'm looking forward to, no less...


Why the UK release date below? Ah well, the logo looks different from the one Disney showed at CinemaCon...

  2. I have a question: Is BFG co-produced with DreamWorks? coz every source I found it says it's with DreamWorks.

    1. IMDb lists it as a Walt Disney Pictures/Amblin/DreamWorks/Walden Media/Reliance production, distributed under the Disney banner. Also, the logo at CinemaCon showed Disney instead of "Touchstone" or "DreamWorks".

  3. meaning this will be the first film DreamWorks made to be produced not by Touchstone banner, but directly by Disney?

  4. I don't understand how Fox still thinks people in the US and Canada are interested in this stale franchise. Even another 'Shrek' movie wouldn't be nearly as painful.

    1. The interest in 'Ice Age' certainly dwindles in the US/Canada, but overseas it's always big. The last one took in $715 million overseas alone! Isn't that something?
