Eddie Murphy classics TRADING PLACES (35th Anniv.) and COMING TO AMERICA (30th Anniv.) available on Blu-ray and Digital June 12th

Eddie Murphy demonstrates his incomparable comedic talent in the beloved 80s classics TRADING PLACES and COMING TO AMERICA, available individually on Blu-ray+ Digital June 12, 2018 from Paramount Home Media Distribution.

Celebrating its 35th anniversary, TRADING PLACES pairs Murphy with Dan Aykroyd in director John Landis’ sidesplitting social satire.  A small-time con artist switches roles with a big-time stock market maven as part of an idle bet between two mega-rich brothers.  But when the truth comes out, the consequences are pure comedy gold.  The Blu-ray includes multiple behind-the-scenes featurettes, as well as access to a digital copy.

In COMING TO AMERICA, which celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2018, Murphy reteamed with director John Landis to play a pampered African prince who disguises his identity to roam the U.S. in search of a bride.  The film also stars Arsenio Hall and James Earl Jones and features a variety of cameos, including Don Ameche and Ralph Bellamy from Trading Places.  The Blu-ray includes vintage interviews with the cast, behind-the-scenes featurettes, a photo gallery, and access to a digital copy.

DreamWorks Animation Television Creates Two New Series for Amazon Prime Video

DreamWorks Animation Television is creating two original kids series for Amazon Prime Video, beginning with the all-new The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle expected to premiere May 11, 2018 in the US, UK, Germany, India, and Japan. A second series inspired by the blockbuster franchise, Kung Fu Panda: The Paws of Destiny, will have a global debut later this year in over 200 territories, also on Prime Video.

 

The world-famous talking moose and flying squirrel are back in The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle, a serialized comedy about two goofball best friends who routinely find themselves thrust into harrowing situations but end up saving the day time and again. As Rocky and Bullwinkle’s innocent and silly ambitions to become rock stars or find lost treasure end up dovetailing with Fearless Leader’s sinister plans to take over the world, our heroes are set on a collision course with his notorious super spies Boris Badenov and Natasha Fatale.

 

The series is executive produced by Scott Fellows (The Fairly OddParents, Big Time Rush) and Tiffany Ward, daughter of the original series producer Jay Ward, and features Tara Strong (The Powerpuff Girls, Teen Titans Go!)  as the voice of Rocket J. Squirrel, Brad Norman (America’s Most Haunted) as Bullwinkle J. Moose, Ben Diskin (Hey Arnold!) as Boris Badenov, Rachel Butera (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) as Natasha Fatale, Piotr Michael (Impress Me, MADtv) as Fearless Leader and Daran Norris (The Fairly OddParents) as Narrator.

 

Later in 2018, Prime Video will premiere Kung Fu Panda: The Paws of Destiny, an epic adventure series from Emmy Award-winning executive producers Mitch Watson (All Hail King Julien) and Elliott Owen (All Hail King Julien), and Lane Lueras (The Adventures of Puss in Boots). When four panda kids stumble upon a mystical cave beneath Panda Village, accidentally absorbing the chi of ancient and powerful kung fu warriors known as the Four Constellations, they must realize a destiny to save the world from an evil force. Meanwhile, Po finds himself faced with his biggest challenge yet — teaching this ragtag band of kids how to wield their newfound powers.

 

Kung Fu Panda: The Paws of Destiny marks the first time an original series from DreamWorks Animation Television will be made available to Prime Video customers worldwide. Since 2013, DreamWorks has launched 17 series around the globe, garnering 17 Emmy Awards since inception. DreamWorks was recently nominated for 23 2018 Daytime Creative Arts Emmys.
