    The 'Dumbo' scene that never was: Exclusive art from Disney's archives

    In his multibook series They Drew as They Pleased: The Hidden Art of Disney’s Late Golden Age , Disney historian Didier Ghez has performed his own Indiana Jones act, delving into the recesses of the Mouse House’s storied animation archives to unearth the rarest of cinematic treasures. With the third volume coming out next week, Ghez gave Yahoo Entertainment a sneak preview of his archaeology, stunning artwork created for Disney features and shorts in the 1940s, including such masterpieces as Dumbo ,  Fantasia , Bambi , and Alice in Wonderland. “Half of the pieces in the book come from the Disney vault and half from the collection of the families of Disney artists. More than 90 percent of them had never been seen before in book form,” Ghez says. “Most of them had not been seen by anyone outside of the Disney Studio in more than 75 years.  “Rescuing these pieces of art created by some of the most talented artists of the 20th century is immensely rewarding.” Contained here are illustrations for “The Mouse’s Tale,” a scene from Dumbo that was ultimately cut from the film, as well as the image Ghez calls “the most exceptional document featured in the book.” Click through to see. They Drew as They Pleased: The Hidden Art of Disney’s Late Golden Age: The 1940s  —  Part Two (Chronicle Books, $45) will be available on Oct. 10.

    'Black Panther': Exclusive sneak peek at Marvel movie's tie-in toys

    It’s been three long months since the breathtaking  Black Panther trailer debuted , showcasing Chadwick Boseman ‘s solo superhero outing, which hits theaters Feb. 16, 2018. Since then, we’ve had extremely limited looks at the anticipated  Marvel Cinematic Universe  entry, having to settle for a tantalizing action scene at San Diego Comic-Con along with a handful of  costumes and props . But today, Yahoo Movies  exclusively unveils the upcoming line of toys  — which offer a few clues to the film. Next spring, Hasbro will release a slew of Panther-themed playthings, from action figures of varying magnitude to role-play items that let fans channel their inner Wakanda warrior. The toys give us a glimpse of Michael B. Jordan ‘s villainous Erik Killmonger costume, tease the Panther’s upgraded Vibranium-powered supersuit, and also provide a sneak peek at the hero’s shape-shifting vehicle, the Panther Jet. The toys will be publicly debuted at Hascon , Hasbro’s inaugural convention covering all its lines, including  Star Wars , Marvel , Transformers , G.I. Joe, and My Little Pony , which runs Friday to Sunday in Providence, R.I. In the meantime, click through to get a taste of  Black Panther .

    The People With the Most Oscar Nominations Without a Win

    As Peter O’Toole said when he received an honorary Oscar in 2002 after eight unsuccessful nominations in the competitive categories, “Always a bridesmaid, never a bride, my foot.” Leonardo DiCaprio may have broken his losing streak with last year’s win for Best Actor in "The Revenant," but some people are still waiting for gold. These folks included here may not own an Oscar, but they’re all winners in our book. A few of the honorees below are nominated again this year, so watch the Oscars on Feb. 26 to see if they finally get their trophy.

    We typically think Meryl Streep when it comes to Oscar records, with the master thespian having amassed an incredible 19 nominations. But when it comes to actual wins, Streep’s not in the record books. Instead you’ll find names both famous (Walt Disney, John Williams, Katharine Hepburn) and less familiar (art director Cedric Gibbons, soundman Gary Rydstrom). As we get ready for Oscar night on Feb. 26, here are the folks who have been awarded the most statuettes.
