In Case You Missed It!

We are so excited here in our house! You see, today is opening day for Big Hero 6! My hubby has been anxiously awaiting this film. Honestly, I think he’s more excited than I am. (Anytime we came across a Big Hero 6 preview when catching up on our DVRed shows, he’d always go back to watch it.) So, you know where we’ll be this evening! Who else is excited to finally meet the squishy Baymax via the big screen?

This week, check out the Marvel special that aired on ABC, find out just how many Elsa dresses have been sold in the past year, and so much more!

In Case You Missed It – Disney and Universal Orlando News and Rumors

 

I’m sure you heard about the fire on Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. If not, it was caused by a stray firework, and you can read all about it here.

Every time you go to Disney parks, you see little girls dressed as Elsa, and I’m sure that during Halloween you saw quite a few on your doorsteps. But just how many Elsa dresses have been sold? The “Reader’s Digest” version is: a lot.  (Find out the actual number by reading the article.)

Wow! Did you catch the special show from this week on ABC, “Marvel: 75 Years, From Pulp to Pop”? It was an introspective look at the company’s past and what makes it so great now. If you are a fan of Marvel, this is a can’t-miss special. (So, if you did miss it…go watch it…now…I’ll wait for you to come back.)

Speaking of Marvel’s huge reign over what seems like everything, Guardians of the Galaxy has been doing gang-busters, and it has recently taken over the number two spot for worldwide box office take for 2014, overtaking Maleficent.

Another fantastic trailer was released for Into the Woods! The musical theater geek in me just squeeed…in case you were wondering what that high pitch noise was.

That’s a wrap! On filming that is for Star Wars VII. Or should I say Star Wars: The Force Awaken?  The new title was released this week, and people began speculating everywhere. So that makes me curious as to your thoughts?

Speaking of huge news: There’s going to be a Toy Story 4! And it’s going to be directed by John Lasseter. Just wow! This news intrigues me a lot. I do wonder where the story will go. In addition, Entertainment Weekly took a look at Pixar’s Top 12 Moments, and those really show you how incredible Pixar is at telling a good story.

This week, the Disney Movies Anywhere app launched in the Google Play store. See what this means for Disney and what it could mean in the future for other companies and just why it maybe isn’t a big deal, according to the author of the article. (Do you have the app downloaded to your devices already?)

So, while Halloween has already ended, the Universal Orlando Resort is already gearing up for the 25th anniversary of its popular Halloween Horror Nights event, and it’s going to be a doozy. What are your thoughts, and what would you like to see for the 25th year?
