Trash Truck NEW Series Trailer 🚚 Netflix Jr

Trash Truck is a Netflix animated preschool series about the adventures of six-year-old Hank and his best friend Trash Truck, a honking, snorting—yes, you guessed it—trash truck. Created by Max Keane, the show was based on his then two-year-old son’s real-life love of trash trucks.

Trash Truck is executive produced by Max Keane alongside Oscar-winning animation duo Glen Keane and Gennie Rim (Dear Basketball, Over the Moon). The voice cast features Brian Baumgartner (The Office) as Walter, Glen Keane as Grandpa / Trash Truck, Max Keane as Dad, Henry Keane as Hank, Megan Keane as Mom, Olive Keane as Olive, Lucas Neff as Donny, and Jackie Loeb as Miss Mona.

Six-year-old Hank and his best buddy — a giant honking, snorting trash truck — go on lots of fun adventures, from learning to fly to going to the movies. Trash Truck arrives November 10, only on Netflix.

Jon M. Chu to Direct Lucasfilm’s “Willow” Series for Disney+ with Warwick Davis and Ron Howard Returning

BURBANK, Calif. (Oct. 20, 2020) – The magical world of George Lucas’ “Willow,” the epic fantasy adventure set in an age of swords, sorcery, myths and monsters, will be returning in a Disney+ series slated to begin production next year.

Jon M. Chu (“In The Heights,” “Crazy Rich Asians”) is set to direct the pilot, and will serve as executive producer along with showrunners Jonathan Kasdan (“Solo”) and Wendy Mericle (“Arrow”). Jonathan Kasdan wrote the pilot.

“Growing up in the ’80s, ‘Willow’ has had a profound effect on me,” says Chu. “The story of the bravest heroes in the least likely places allowed me, an Asian-American kid growing up in a Chinese restaurant looking to go to Hollywood, to believe in the power of our own will, determination and of course, inner magic. So the fact that I get to work with my heroes from Kathleen Kennedy to Ron Howard is bigger than a dream come-true. It’s a bucket-list moment for me. Jon Kasdan and Wendy Mericle have added such groundbreaking new characters and delightful surprises to this timeless story that I can’t wait for the world to come along on this epic journey with us.”

Chu directed the film adaptation of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s musical “In the Heights,” which will be released in June 2021. He will also direct and serve as executive producer for the pilot of ABC’s Medical Drama “Triage.”

Ron Howard, director of the original “Willow” film, returns as executive producer on the series with Bob Dolman, writer of the original film, serving as consulting producer.

“It’s creatively exciting to not only revisit the world and characters first conceived by George Lucas, Bob Dolman and myself but to see it take flight in such fresh, fun and cinematic ways through the imagination of Jon Kasdan and Team Willow,” says Howard. “This isn’t a nostalgic throw-back, it’s a creative lean-forward and it’s a blast to be a part of it all.”

The series, which is Lucasfilm’s first venture into non-Star Wars storytelling since 2015, takes place years after the events of the original “Willow” film. It introduces all-new characters to the enchanted realm of fairy queens and two-headed Eborsisk monsters, and welcomes back its namesake hero, Willow Ufgood, performed once again by the unmatchable Warwick Davis.

“So many fans have asked me over the years if Willow will make a return, and now I’m thrilled to tell them that he will indeed,” says Davis. “Many have told me they grew up with ‘Willow’ and that the film has influenced how they view heroism in our own world. If Willow Ufgood can represent the heroic potential in all of us, then he is a character I am extremely honored to reprise.”

“This is an exciting new era for storytelling at Lucasfilm,” says Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy. “Jon Chu’s vision, coupled with the writing of Jon Kasdan and Wendy Mericle, is going to take Willow into new and exciting directions for the series. Reuniting Ron Howard and Warwick Davis in the world of ‘Willow’ is something that they’ve both wanted to do for some time, and I couldn’t be more proud of the incredible team we’ve put together to bring this series to Disney+.”

Kathleen Kennedy, Michelle Rejwan, Jon M. Chu, Jonathan Kasdan, Wendy Mericle, Ron Howard and Imagine Television will serve as executive producers, with Roopesh Parekh and Hannah Friedman as co-executive producers. Additionally, Bob Dolman will serve as consulting producer with Julia Cooperman as producer.

The production plans to return to the dramatic and enchanted landscapes of Wales, where much of the original film was shot.

The nominated films will soon be submitted to the more than 3,800 EFA Members to elect the winner. The European Animated Feature Film 2020 will then be presented at the virtual 33rd European Film Awards Ceremony.

The 33rd European Film Awards will take place as a virtual ceremony without an audience, broadcast and streamed from the European Film Academy’s seat, Berlin, on Saturday, 12 December 2020. With deep regret but in full and mutual agreement, the European Film Academy (EFA), the Mayor of Reykjavik and the Icelandic Minister of Education, Science and Culture, decided to cancel the event in the Icelandic capital in December 2020, and are happy to announce that instead the 35th European Film Awards Ceremony will be presented in Reykjavik in December 2022. Following their usual rhythm, the 34th EFAs will take place in Berlin in 2021.

The decision acknowledges the deteriorating situation due to the COVID-19 pandemic in an increasing number of European countries, and in Iceland. The pandemic will affect all events usually taking place during the EFA Weekend. The European Film Academy and its in-house company EFA Productions are currently working on a new concept for an EFA Week of additional online-events to involve its partners and members, including the annual General Assembly.

The awarding procedures will remain the same, i.e. most awards are voted for directly by the over 3,800 EFA Members. Due to the pandemic, the nominations will also be announced online, on Tuesday, 10 November, in a livestream presented together with EFA’s longtime partners at the Seville European FiLm Festival in Spain.
