Watch the first 'Paddington' trailer! -- VIDEO

Paddington.jpg

Get ready for some cuteness: The first trailer for Paddington is here.

The movie is based on the beloved books about Paddington, a Peruvian bear who finds himself in London, where he gets adopted by the Brown family. David Heyman, known for his work on Gravity and the Harry Potter films, produced Paddington and got big names like Nicole Kidman and Colin Firth involved.

Paddington Bear, voiced by Firth, is animated and placed in a live-action environment — think Tedbut family-friendly. Other stars include Peter Capaldi, Sally Hawkins, and Hugh Bonneville.

Paddington doesn’t hit American theaters until December, but check out the trailer below to see what you’re in for:

Mickey and Minnie try to cheer up Donald and Daisy in new 'Mouse' short -- EXCLUSIVE

Donald Duck and Daisy Duck are feeling blue. Why? Because “Mr. Hublot” beat out “Get a Horse!” for Best Animated Short.

'My Little Pony' clip: 'So... cute... can't... take it!' EXCLUSIVE

No, the quote above doesn’t refer to My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic itself — though you could be forgiven for thinking it did. Instead, Pinkie Pie squeals it while watching the arrival of the Breezies, a group of magical winged creatures that look sort of like a cross between mini-ponies and butterflies.

Unfortunately, the Breezies aren’t quite as carefree as their name would imply. After kind Fluttershy lends the flock a hand — er, hoof — she finds herself in with the Breezies… which is fine, until it means that she’s stuck catering to their every whim.

'My Little Pony': Twilight teaches the Cutie Mark Crusaders a lesson -- EXCLUSIVE

Does that headline sound weirdly menacing? It shouldn’t; in the next episode of My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic, Twilight Sparkle literally offers to help the Cutie Mark Crusaders with their scholastic pursuits. Of course, things get a little complicated when Apple Bloom, Scootaloo and Sweetie Belle realize that their tutor is one of the coolest ponies on the block — and they decide to use her popularity to their own advantage.

Before that point, though, it’s all fun and games — like in this exclusive clip, in which Twilight passes on some of her wisdom.

'My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic': See Fluttershy sing her heart out -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

As her name implies, Fluttershy isn’t the most outgoing pony in Equestria. But that doesn’t mean she can’t cut loose every now and then — provided nobody’s watching.

In this clip from the next episode of My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic, Fluttershy unleashes her gorgeous voice for a group of her admiring animal pals. She’d never perform in front of a group of other ponies, though — unless she could do it in disguise. Which is where a pony singer who’s lost his voice, an important charity concert, and Zecora’s mysterious remedies come in.

Get a glimpse at the episode below. READ FULL STORY

'My Little Pony Equestria Girls': Yes, there will be a sequel. And we've got a clip! EXCLUSIVE

Thought the adventures of My Little Pony‘s Equestria Girls — pony-human hybrids who share the names and personalities of My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic‘s Mane 6 — ended when Twilight Sparkle escaped back through the portal to Canterlot High?

Think again. (Also, the previous sentence makes sense — I promise.)

Hasbro Studios reveals exclusively to EW that it will release a second Equestria Girls movie later this year. The film’s plot is under wraps for now — but given this teaser and the film’s title, My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks, it’s safe to assume that music will play a larger role than ever. Get ready to shake your tail and watch the clip below:

'Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return': First look at new adventure, starring Lea Michele -- EXCLUSIVE

DOROTHY-OZ-01

Sure, there’s no place like home — but who would turn down a chance to go back to the merry old land of Oz?

Enter Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return, a 3-D animated musical based on Roger Stanton Baum’s 1989 novel Dorothy of Oz. (And yes, Roger is one of those Baums; original Oz author L. Frank was his great-grandfather.) The story follows the heroic Dorothy Gale (Lea Michele) back to the beloved fantasy land, where she and her pals — the Scarecrow (Dan Aykroyd), the Cowardly Lion (Jim Belushi), the Tin Man (Kelsey Grammer), and Glinda (Bernadette Peters) must face a wicked new villain: the Jester (Martin Short.)

The film won’t hit theaters for another few months — but you can get a first glimpse at it in the four addition exclusive images below. (Unfortunately, you’ll just have to imagine any Lea/Bernadette duets for now.)
