Well hello Toy Story on politically-minded, stop-motion animated crack!
In Toys in the Attic, which stars the voices of Forest Whitaker, Joan Cusack, and Carey Elwes, Czech director Jiri Barta has constructed a visually striking, compelling fantasy tale that mirrors REAL historical and cultural issues!
The film is set during the Cold War at a home in Prague. In the attic of this home is a whole world unseen to the human eye, a world divided into

Looks like Mariah Carey wasn’t the ONLY diva daring to step out in the New Orleans heat yesterday!
Also spotted on set of The Butler was none other than Mz. Oprah Winfrey, who was getting ready for another day of filming!
Check out the Mighty O (above), making her way from her SUV to her trailer!
Guess she likes to ride barefoot in the backseat, LOLz!
…Or perhaps she was just waiting on her on-screen hubby/the butler himself, Forest Whitaker, to lend a helping hand! Ha!

Smile that Triumphant smile, Mariah Carey!! You're on
Nanny Butler cam!
The daintiest Diva this side of the 90s was all smiles Monday when arriving to the set of historical, presidential drama, The Butler (above).
Guess girl wasn't TOO distraught over American Idol's spunky Nicki Minaj addition! Teehee!
We're still not sure WHAT part Mariah will be playing in the Forest Whitaker-featured project, but we expect it's some sort of saucy White House maid who tries to steal him away from wifey Oprah Winfrey!
Even the most serious of dramas can be riddled with romantic intrigue… right?!

Academy Award nominated director Lee Daniels is hard at work in New Orleans filming The Butler and the first pic of his main character has been released (above).
Forest Whitaker stars as the titular character based on Eugene Allen, a butler who served eight different presidents and their families living in the White House.
This photo is nice and all, but what we REALLY want to see is what Oprah is going to look like as Whitaker's on-screen wife!
Her return to the big screen alone is enough to make us want to see this drama, but the rest of the talented cast is a plus too!

You go Alex Pettyfer!!
The seksi-sexfaced actor has joined the cast of Lee Daniels' latest film, The Butler!
It's really an honor for Alex to be cast, considering Daniels (aka the dude who directed Prescious) can get pretty much whoever he wants to be in his films.
The flick is already overflowing with-top notch award-winning cast members, including: Forest Whitaker, David Oyelowo, Alan Rickman, Jane Fonda, Oprah Winfrey, Minka Kelly, Cuba Gooding Jr, Terrance Howard, and… Lenny Kravitz.
This sounds like the perrrrrfect way for the yummy star to get some respect for his acting, and not his de-lish body!

Add one more hottie
big name to an already impressive cast!!
Minka Kelly just signed on to become Jackie Onassis in The Butler and we think she’s a FABULOUS choice to play history’s most beloved First Lady!!
Minka is always struck us as fashion forward but she’s going to need to bring back gloves, hats, and oversized glasses for this one!
We're predicting this movie might be one of 2013's best!
Forest Whitaker is featured as

Amongst her many duties at her network OWN, it sounds like Oprah will soon be taking on another role as well!
Though previously rumored, Jane Fonda has just officially confirmed that Oprah Winfrey, along with Forest Whitaker, will be starring in her new film The Butler.
SO excited to see Oprah back on the silver screen!!!!
Fonda took to her blog, writing:
