Ice Age Animation House Blue Sky Studios Gets Shut Down by Disney

Ice Age Animation House Blue Sky Studios Gets Shut Down by Disney
Blue Sky Studios, the Disney-owned animation studio behind the Ice Age movies and many other animated favorites, will soon be shutting down. Formerly owned by 20th Century Studios, Blue Sky was famously acquired by Disney in 2019 along with all of Fox's assets. Now, it's been announced that the studio's run will officially come to an end with its last day of operations coming in April, largely due to financial setbacks caused by the pandemic.

"Given the current economic realities, after much consideration and evaluation, we have made the difficult decision to close filmmaking operations at Blue Sky Studios," a studio representative told Deadline.

Around 450 employees at Blue Sky Studios will be affected by the shuttering of the company. Disney will reportedly work with the employees to explore open positions at other Disney-owned studios. The Blue Sky library and IP will also remain under Disney's control, as there are no plans

Disney Closing Blue Sky Studios, Fox’s Once-Dominant Animation House Behind ‘Ice Age’ Franchise

Disney Closing Blue Sky Studios, Fox’s Once-Dominant Animation House Behind ‘Ice Age’ Franchise
Exclusive: Disney is shuttering Blue Sky Studios, the $5.9 billion global grossing former 20th Century Fox animation division which during its run churned out 13 features including the Ice Age franchise.

One can say that the writing was always on the wall for Blue Sky, especially after Disney acquired 20th Century Studios and its assets in March 2019. However, the past year has been challenging for Disney on many fronts, of course due to the pandemic, not just on the studio side but with theme park closures and cruise line dockings as well. Sustaining a third feature animation studio was no longer viable for Disney given the current economic realities caused by Covid. The last day for Blue Sky will be in April. The number of Blue Sky employees being impacted numbers 450. Disney will be working with the employees at the Greenwich, Ct based animation house to explore open positions at the other internal studios.

Hulu New Releases: February 2021

Hulu New Releases: February 2021
Hey, remember when they released that picture of the CGI movie Sonic the Hedgehog and it was so freakish and unnerving that animators had to work overtime to fix it? Anywho, Sonic the Hedgehog is coming to Hulu this month.

The heroic blue hedgehog who just wants to go fast is far from the only exciting new film or TV show coming to Hulu in February 2021. The library titles are unusually packed this month. In addition to Sonic, the sublimely goofy Mars Attacks!, 2020 horror film Possessor, and the first six Star Trek films all arrive on Feb. 1. Later on in the month are Antebellum (Feb. 5) and Nomadland (Feb. 19).

It’s a good thing that the library titles are strong because Hulu isn’t brining many originals of note to the table in February 2021. Into the Dark continues on its spooky mission with the Valentine-centric Tentacles dropping on Feb. 12. That will

Set Phasers to Stream: Here’s All the ‘Star Trek’ Content on CBS All Access
From low-budget romps to high-energy blockbuster films, Star Trek has become one of the most influential sci-fi franchises of all time. While Trek has decades worth of TV, film, and animated iterations that might rival Star Wars, it also has its own unique legacy and long-time, passionate cult following.

With the release of Star Trek: Discovery in 2017, the Trek television universe has become one of the highlights of original programming on CBS All Access, the network’s streaming platform. Unlike Kevin Feige‘s aggressive rollout of new shows for Phase

How Star Trek: Discovery Has Changed the Federation and Starfleet

How Star Trek: Discovery Has Changed the Federation and Starfleet
This Star Trek: Discovery article contains spoilers for Season 3, Episode 5, “Die Trying.”

After four episodes of searching for what was left of the United Federation of Planets, the crew of the USS Discovery actually finds the new incarnation of their government, 930 years later. For a casual fan, the new Starfleet and United Federation of Planets may not seem all that different — after all, didn’t they have greyish uniforms kind of like that in the last Chris Pine movie, Star Trek Beyond? Superficially, Starfleet may have been given a sleek upgrade, but the look and feel of the most famous fictional space-faring organization isn’t actually the big news. Yes, we got a good look at a new (or old?) USS Voyager as well as several other shiny starships from the 32nd Century. But, the bigger changes fundamentally alter the context of what Star Trek is all about. Here are

Discovery Season 3’s Latest Twist is Straight Out Of Star Trek: Insurrection

Discovery Season 3’s Latest Twist is Straight Out Of Star Trek: Insurrection
This Star Trek: Discovery article contains spoilers for Season 3, Episode 3.

In Star Trek: The Original Series, the USS Enterprise never once visited a contemporary version of Earth. Yes, the crew often time-traveled to Earth of the past, but going to the 23rd century of Earth was totally passé. Obviously, the Trek franchise has visited future versions of Earth a ton since then, but in the latest episode of Star Trek: Discovery Season 3—“People of Earth”—the Trek franchise seems to split the difference. Yes, this episode is about checking out what Earth is like in the 32nd Century, but it’s also bringing Trek back to a place where talking about Earth a lot just isn’t something you do anymore. Here’s how “People of Earth” made the Planet Earth itself into a planet-of-the-week, and why the big twist probably reminded you of Star Trek: Insurrection.

Amazon Announces Star Trek Month For November

Amazon Announces Star Trek Month For November
Star Trek Day was actually at the beginning of September, but Amazon has just announced that they’re making November their Star Trek Month.

Star Trek: Lower Decks Episode 6 — Riker & USS Titan Easter Egg Explained

Star Trek: Lower Decks Episode 6 — Riker & USS Titan Easter Egg Explained
This Star Trek: Lower Decks review contains spoilers.

Because Star Trek: Lower Decks happens right after the events of Star Trek: Nemesis, we know a few things about the Tng crew of the USS Enterprise at this time. For one thing, Picard is still in command of the USS Enterprise-e—at least he will be for the next few years. But, in the latest episode of Lower Decks—“Terminal Provocations”—we also got one roundabout reference to Will Riker, Deanna Troi, and the starship USS Titan. Here’s what the Titan Easter egg at the end of “Terminal Provocations” means, and why it might create yet another teensy-tiny question about our ongoing questions about Starfleet uniform canon in the era of Lower Decks…

Echoing a joke in Episode 4, the ending of Episode 6 of Lower Decks finds an incompetent Starfleet Officer named Fletcher promoted instead of reprimanded. After Mariner and Boimler

Hulu Added Some Great Horror Movies Today To Kick Off August

Hulu Added Some Great Horror Movies Today To Kick Off August
Following on from a July where they added a large number of horror titles to their catalogue, Hulu have now made available even more great outings from the genre. As with all the major streaming players, keeping subscribers happy with new content during this Covid-19 year has been crucial, especially given the new competitors that have sprung up in recent months, further splintering film rights. Hulu are usually pretty reliable in terms of diversity, though, and have added some particularly strong horror titles for August.

Among the highlights for new movies is the original 1988 Child’s Play, which introduced the murderous Chucky to the world in a film that arguably remains the high-point of the franchise. A reasonably realistic setting, a convincing child performance and some excellent effects work make Child’s Play a classic of the period and more than worth a rewatch. And with the Chucky series on the way,

Hulu Is Adding A Few Great Horror Movies In August

Hulu Is Adding Tons Of Star Trek Movies Next Month
Return to a time when Star Trek wasn’t the glitzy blockbuster property it is now, a time when budgets were modest and sets didn’t resemble Apple stores. Move over J.J., we’re heading back to the past for a feast of classic movies.

Hulu are adding six classic Trek flicks to their library on August 1st, including perhaps the most popular Star Trek film of all, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. Here’s the full list of what you can catch:

Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979) Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982) Star Trek III: The Search for Spock (1984) Star Trek V: The Final Frontier (1989) Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (1991) Star Trek: Insurrection (1998)

Hulu New Releases: August 2020

Hulu New Releases: August 2020
If you were concerned about there being a content drought in August due to the coronavirus pandemic shutting down Hollywood, you were…absolutely right in those concerns.

For its new releases in August 2020, Hulu is following Apple, Disney, and even Peacock’s lead in taking things nice and slowly. The vast majority of the notable offerings here are of the library variety. Hulu adds classic movies like Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Rain Man, and Top Gun on August 1. Those go along with the very much still-holds-up Casino Royale on August 31.

Hulu also has room for some interesting recent indie movies like Ordinary Love (Aug. 3) and Peanut Butter Falcon (Aug. 6). But when it comes to Hulu original content there’s not much going on. The unheralded Find Me in Paris debuts its third season on August 21. That is followed by original comedy The Binge on August 28. And that’s about it!

Is The Star Trek Franchise Returning To The Original Series Format?

Is The Star Trek Franchise Returning To The Original Series Format?
Some spoilers ahead for Star Trek: Discovery and Star Trek: Picard.

At the very beginning of the 1998 movie Star Trek: Insurrection, Captain Jean-Luc Picard jokingly asks, “Can anyone remember when we used to be explorers?” At the time, a lot of Trekkies chuckled uncomfortably in the theater. Over two decades later, the joke has become less funny.

There has been some excellent Star Trek since 1998, but how much of it has been about trekking through the stars? On some level, not since the cancellation of Star Trek: Enterprise in 2005 has the franchise directly explored the theme of well, exploration. But, suddenly, the entire Star Trek franchise seems ready to pivot back to its roots. The next three live-action iterations of Trek — Discovery season 3, Picard season 2, and the impending Strange New Worlds — are all poised to bring the Trek franchise into a format and style we haven’t seen in quite awhile.

Star Trek: Picard’ Review: Episode 4 Proves Resistance to This Series Was Always Futile

‘Star Trek: Picard’ Review: Episode 4 Proves Resistance to This Series Was Always Futile
Stand down from red alert!

Star Trek: Picard” seems to have course corrected from its lackluster first three episodes in the engaging adventure that is “Absolute Candor.” At last, this show is no longer just a talky chamber drama with characters doing little more than speaking to each other while sitting in chairs of various comfort levels.

Intriguingly, each of the previous three episodes had multiple credited writers, while this one only had one: showrunner Michael Chabon. It feels like a more coherent effort as well, suggesting that some editing might have been done to the previous episodes to make sure all the table-setting that was necessary for this plot to kick into gear had really been done.

Also back behind the camera? Jonathan Frakes! Number One himself and beloved director of “Star Trek: First Contact” (and slightly less beloved director of “Star Trek: Insurrection.”)
