D23 Round-up of everything else: Phineas and Ferb, Jeff Goldblum, Lady and the Tramp, Monsters, Forky and more…

August 24th, 2019 by Marc Comments

So we’ve had all the Star Wars and Marvel TV news from D23 so here’s a round-up of all the rest.

Without further ado.

First up, Phineas and Ferb The Movie: Candace Against the Universe, an original film, will be available exclusively on Disney+ and it may be among the news that has me the most excited from he whole event last night. Here’s the poster:

Interestingly, the movie was originally set for release in 2013 theatrically but ended up being shelved. The plot involves the stepbrothers in a race to rescue their sister, who has been abducted by aliens and lives in a bro-free utopia on a far-away planet. I love watching this show with the family, so I’m totally in.

Next up, a weird announcement as we’re getting a series staring Jeff Goldblum that will see him travel the world and share the wonder with us. Or something.

Next up is the Lady and the Tramp live-action movie. Here’s the poster and the trailer:

In Disney+’s “Lady and the Tramp,” a timeless re-telling of the 1955 animated classic, a pampered house dog and a tough but lovable stray embark on an unexpected adventure and, despite their differences, grow closer and come to understand the value of home.

On top of all the familiar stuff, there will be original content (shock, I know) as there’ll be a Stargirl movie based on the book of the same nam  and Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made which is also based on a book, and stars a giant polar bear.

Next up, Anna Kendrick has to ave Christmas this November win festive comedy Noelle, in which Santa’s daughter is full of Christmas spirit and holiday fun, but wishes she could do something “important” like her beloved brother Nick, who will take over from their father this Christmas.

When Nick is about to crumble like a gingerbread cookie from all the pressure, Noelle suggests he take a break and get away…but when he doesn’t return, Noelle must find her brother and bring him back in time to save Christmas.

Oh yeah, and The Muppets are coming back:

Not really our thing, but Hilary Duff will be reprising the role as Lizzie in an all-new Lizzie McGuire series from Terri Minsky coming to Disney+

Next up is a sequel series to Monster University: “Graduated from MU and ready for the real world. Get a new look at Monsters at Work’s Tylor and Millie, coming to #DisneyPlus in 2020.”

There’s also a documentary based on like working at Disney parks:

there’s also a series of Toy Story shorts coming called Forky Asks a Question:

How about High School Musical The Musical The Series?

then there’s Kristen Bell in encore:

And finally, here’s a new trailer for the whole service:

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
