Disney Investor Day
The Walt Disney Company made a slew of announcements on December 10, 2020 about upcoming films for their Disney+ streaming service as well as their slate of theatrical film releases from all of the major studios: Lucasfilm, Marvel Studios, Pixar Animation Studios, and Walt Disney Animation Studios. You can view the presentation here (it’s four+ hours long…really). The D23 website has a good summary of it, too.
“Modern” Christmas Movies
Truth be told, I struggle to find any contemporary Christmas movies that I really love. However, two constant favorites are actually TV specials: A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965) and How the Grinch Stole Christmas (1966; again, the 30-minute TV special, not one of the lousy feature film adaptations).
