BUZZ News Shorts: The Force Awakens, The Incredibles 2, Legends Of Tomorrow & More

incredibles-2-brad-bird••• Director Brad Bird has been speaking to Coming Soon about the inspiration for The Incredibles 2 and why he was in no rush to make it: “I don’t think I could have made this movie right away. Nor would I want to. I always want to break things up with something else. I know some directors who have done a movie and then, the very next thing they do is the sequel to that movie. Unless it’s Lord Of The Rings and it was always conceived of us doing it that way, I will always want to break it up with something else and then come back to it. That said, I’m really looking forward to playing with this playset again… I had a bunch of ideas that I wanted to put in The Incredibles but they just didn’t fit. Certain ideas fit, but other things make you go, ‘This is great, but I’d have to give up two other things that matter more to me to get this other thing in.’ It’s not a big thing. There were little scenes and things that I was interested in. I wanted to come up with sort of an over-arching idea that connected to the first film that went somewhere different. That’s the one that took a little more time.”

Stephanie_Corneliussen_Mr_robot••• Mr Robot star Stephanie Corneliussen is set to guest star in DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow as Valentina Vostok, a character lifted from the DC universe. For the series, the character is described as, “a gifted and beautiful Soviet physicist who will stop at nothing to defend her precious Motherland.” According to TVLine, she will appear in an episode taking place at the height of the Cold War in which The Atom and Captain Cold will vie for her affection.

••• Below is the new poster for Disney’s Zootopia, an animated comedy-adventure directed by Byron Howard (Tangled, Bolt) and Rich Moore (Wreck-It Ralph) and co-directed by Jared Bush (Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero). It’s set in a “modern mammal metropolis” with neighbourhoods such as the ritzy Sahara Square and the frigid Tundratown. It’s a melting pot where animals from all environments around the world can live together. When optimistic Officer Judy Hopps (voiced by Once Upon A Time’s Ginnifer Goodwin) arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn’t so easy, especially when she has to partner with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman), to solve a mystery.
