Walt Disney Company Africa reveals its line upBy Ryan Noik 28 November 2012 | Categories: news
The movie is directed by Sam Raimi (of the first three Spider-Man movies and Drag Me to Hell), and, if the trailer is anything to go by, is going to be no less whimsical and fantastic than the latter.
The other highlight worth watching out for is Chimpanzee, a new true life adventure narrated by Tim Allen. The movie follows a young chimpanzee life as a rival band of chimpanzees causes him to be separated from his family, and is adopted and taken care of by a surprising ally.
The final piece of big news revealed by the company centred around the Marvel universe, as we were assured that there was a lot more Avengers related stories on the way.
First up is Iron Man 3 coming in May next year. In the third instalment, Tony Stark (once again played by Robert Downey Jr) finds himself the direct target of a new enemy hell bent on destroying him. According to a tantalising trailer, this begins with a dramatic attack on Stark’s Malibu mansion, that leaves Stark forced to rebuild.
As such, the movie will offer a deeper exploration into Iron Man’s origins, as well as 42 customised Iron Man suits with various abilities. Gwyneth Paltrow will further be returning as Pepper Potts. Then, November 2013 will bring Thor: The Dark World to the big screen, followed by Captain America’s return in 2014 and The Avengers 2 the year after.
The TV shows that are returning on DStv in the months ahead include the second season of Revenge on the 2nd of February, the second season of The Fixer on the 2nd of March, the ninth season of Grey’s Anatomy in February, preceded by the sixth season of its spinoff, Private Practise, in January.
While mention was made of the company’s recent acquisition of the Star Wars franchise, no further details were given at this point, as apparently the move was still being finalised. Nonetheless, clearly there is a great deal to look forward to on the entertainment front.
