Bob Iger recently talked with Variety about his experience testing out the upcoming Banshee attraction for Avatarland, as well as information about the upcoming Star Wars expansion. Finally, don’t miss the rest of the overall interview, which can be found here. All three pieces shared lots of great little nuggets. Which was the most interesting to you? (As for me, I’m certainly curious what’s going on with Star Wars…even though I’m not a Star Wars fanatic. Also, I’m wondering if it’s a great idea seemingly hitching the upcoming updates to what appears to be the new trilogy and stand-alone films. Again, we’re playing the wait and see game.)

Will another restaurant in Disney Springs be operated by the same company who operates Raglan Road? It certainly looks like it will be possible.

Well this story tugged at my heartstrings. Watch as this dad surprises his daughter during the recent Pop Warner events at ESPN Wide World of Sports.

If you’ve been wondering what Finding Dory will be about, we got a little more of the synopsis this week. Are you excited about this upcoming movie? Dory was certainly one of my favorites from the film.

Speaking of Pixar, we got our first official trailer for Inside Out this week. (Granted, I found the UK version, but still, it gives you the general idea.) This one looks so unique. I really cannot wait for this film. (And why do I have a feeling I’m going to bawl at this movie? Oh wait, I know…because it’s brought to us from the guys who brought us Up…that’s why. Please don’t be a movie I bawl at.)

In addition to the trailer, we got an interview with director Pete Docter, who shares in-depth details about the film with USA Today.

Yay for more Star Wars info! Entertainment Weekly had a great exclusive of some of the new characters names that were shown in the teaser trailer that was recently released. I love that they did it via “Topps Trading Cards.” So creative and retro!
