  1. Clever Animation Lampoons Taboo Spoilers In Different Fandoms

    As a Firefly late bloomer, I owe you, Internet.

    We here at The Mary Sue have a lot of opinions about spoilers, as does the rest of nerd-dom, obviously. In her new animation Leigh Lahav depicts the egregious sin of spoiling a beloved geeky entity for one's friends—a transgression second only to insulting another's ship.

  2. A Visual History of Stop Motion Animation [VIDEO]

    So. Many. Frames.

    Stop motion fascinates me, mainly because I know full well that I wouldn't have the patience for it. This quick watch whisks us through stop motion movies old and new, from King Kong to The Boxtrolls. I find myself struck with a powerful need to rewatch The Nightmare Before Christmas.

  4. Cartoon Hangover’s New Short Blackford Manor Will Give You a Case of the Creepy-Crawlies

    "That's... rather too much meat."

    The mind behind Blackford Manor is Jiwook Kim, who’s contributed to The Simpsons Movie, Futurama: Into the Wild Green Yonder, and most recently Bob’s Burgers as a storyboard revisionist. Here, she excellently combines gothic horror with a heaping bowl full of morbid humor. Morbid humor and questionable meats, that is.

  5. First Clip From Pixar’s Lava Short Will Magma-tize Your Heart

    More like volcayes! (Pixar, you know where to find me.)

    Lava premieres before Pixar's Inside Out in 2015, which means I've got almost a year of getting this tropical ditty stuck in my head and dying for context. I can't wait.

Finally he's getting his chance to sling webs as the Ultimates Universe's Miles Morales in an upcoming story arc on Disney XD's The Ultimate Spider-Man.

  8. Talented Makeup Artist Turns Her Mouth Into Famous Animated Characters, And That’s the Tooth

    Makeup with some bite.

    Laura Jenkinson is one seriously talented makeup artist if her Instagram feed is any indication. While she also does beauty and horror makeup, we're most impressed to see her mouth transform into characters from Beauty and the Beast, Finding Nemo, and other animated favorites.

  9. Star Wars: Rebels Gets Premiere Date, New Short Depicts Sabine’s “Art Attack”

    This is gonna be fun.

    We first saw Sabine in the first seven minutes of Star Wars: Rebels, which were released earlier this month. Now she's got her own short video all to herself, and I must say, I like what I see. A woman acting alone in spraypaint-covered Mandalorian armor to mess with a whole team of stormtroopers, all while mocking their accuracy— and passing the Bechdel test with whoever's on her communications link? YES PLEASE.

  10. Frozen Animation Director Ready To Move On From That Time He Said Women Are Hard To Animate

    What do you want us to do? You want us to "let it..." Say it. You have to say it.

    Lino DiSalvo recently sat down with The Globe and Mail to talk about leaving Disney and the awkward legacy that being Animation Director on Frozen has had for his career. It's not surprising that working on the Oscar-winning film had its drawbacks for DiSalvo, who pulled an Ubisoft in a now-notorious 2013 statement where he claimed female characters are "really, really hard to animate" because animators have to "keep them pretty." But did DiSalvo learn anything from the controversy?
