Jason Bateman is in talks to voice-star in a new Walt Disney Animation feature project that will be directed by the director of Disney’s hit “Tangled,” Byron Howard.
Howard is well respected in the animation community and one of the directors behind Disney Animation’s recent resurgence. In fact, he directed (along with Chris Williams) Bolt in 2008, which was nominated for an Oscar. He co-directed the hit “Tangled” with Nathan Greno. He is also a Disney veteran, having worked in various jobs on movies ranging from Pocahontas and Mulan to Lilo & Stitch and Brother Bear.

I’m still surprised that Disney did not make any announcements regarding Star Wars or Star Wars Weekends as part of their “May the 4th Be With You” Star Wars Day Celebration. That said I have scoured the internet to find who is and who is not confirmed for this year so you can plan your trip accordingly! Here’s what I’ve been able to gather thus far from star’s social media pages. Of course only a few have been confirmed by Disney and talent is subject to change without notice so please keep that in mind.
Tentative Guest List for Star Wars Weekend 2013
Weekend One 5/17-19
Ray Park (Darth Maul)
Dee Bradley Baker (Star Wars Clone Wars voice actor)
Jeremy Bulloch (Boba Fett in Original Series)
Ashley Eckstein (voice of Ahsoka Tano)*
James Arnold Taylor (voice of Obi-Wan Kenobi in The Clone Wars)*
Yesterday, seven-time Grammy-winning trio Lady Antebellum gave a special performance at Disneyland park to celebrate the May 7 release of their upcoming album, “Golden.” Appropriately enough, this special performance occurred on the stage of the legendary Golden Horseshoe Saloon.
From the stage of the Golden Horseshoe, the band mentioned how exciting it was to be here at Disneyland, and then, Hillary Scott, who is expecting her first baby in July, joked that she and her husband, drummer Chris Tyrrell, have just taken their daughter to Disneyland for the first time! “We’ll be back, of course,” she said.
Actress Lily James (Downton Abbey) has been cast as Cinderella in Disney’s upcoming live-action interpretation of the beloved classic tale. The film is being directed by Sir Kenneth Branagh and stars Cate Blanchett as the iconic evil stepmother.
Additional announcements regarding Cinderella are expected in the coming weeks.
