Did you get fooled by the fantastic joke we posted for April Fools’ Day this year? (Hee, hee!) Or did you have another favorite April Fools’ Day Disney story? Either way, I’ve learned a long time ago…don’t ever believe anything that gets released on April 1. It’s more than likely going to be false!
This week, I found a lot of movie news, a new app you’ll likely want to download, and what was Universal up to last weekend?
In Case You Missed It – Disney and Universal Orlando News and Rumors
Feeling nostalgic? Take a look at this fantastic video that shares a historic tribute to the Studio Backlot Tour.
My best friend sent me this article and I wanted to share it with you. Make sure you read “9 Things to Never Say to an Adult Disney Fan, Unless You Want an Elsa-Level Cold Shoulder.”
Duck Tales….whoo ooo! Are you ready to play DuckTales: Remastered, a remake of the 1989 game, on your favorite iOS, Android, or Windows device? Now you can…of course, for a price.
Is Mulan the perfect choice for a next live action Disney film? Well, this article seems to think so. Are you happy to see Mulan make its way into the live action arena?
Oh and now there’s one more. Winnie the Pooh is also becoming a live action film, focusing on Christopher Robin as an adult. (Hmmm…this makes me think that maybe it could be like Hook? If that’s the case, that could be an interesting take with the film and feel less like a remake.)
Speaking of all these remakes, Variety takes a look at the question I think we all may be asking…well I know I am…Is Bob Iger playing it too safe? They ask in the realm of the repeated fairytale movie releases specifically, but personally, I wonder about this overall. Is he playing it too safe in everything that he’s done during his tenure at the company? What’s your thought about all this?
While we’re talking about sequels….I think this one may be taking things a little too extreme. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is Bambi! (Thanks SNL for the laughs.)
Well, I didn’t know this sequel was coming. Apparently there’s going to be a Tron 3…and it has a title.
While the characters of Song of the South have been made popular thanks to Splash Mountain, the movie has been shelved by Disney thanks to questionable material. However, animator Floyd Norman shares on his blog why he wouldn’t mind seeing it released again.
Universal Orlando held a unique contest this past weekend called Hackathon. Find out what the competition was all about and what unique augmented and virtual reality products were created and who managed to win. Would be interesting to see if any of these technological advances make their way into the theme parks.
