Howdy, Howdy, Howdy. (Guess the movie….it’s one of my favorite lines.)

Welcome to this week’s jam-packed edition of In Case You Missed It!  Lots of great stuff for you to peruse this week, including the teaser trailer for The Good Dinosaur, a start date for the PBS Walt Disney TV special, and more!

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

 

The Magic Kingdom did it again. It is, once again, the top theme park overall for 2014. Find out where the rest of the Disney and Universal parks made it on the TEA list.

Jay Rasulo is out. He is officially stepping down as CFO at the end of this month. What do you think of this news?

Curious about the recently promoted Bob Chapek, who is now the chairman of Disney Parks and Resorts? He recently gave an interview during the Disneyland 60th Celebration kickoff.

Disney has unveiled robots that walk like cartoon characters, in conjunction with Engineers at Carnegie-Mellon University. Seems interesting and will be curious to see how it potentially gets applied in the theme parks.

Have you heard about Playmation? Well chances are you’ll be hearing about it this fall/winter as one of the it Christmas items. What are your thoughts about this new interactive “wearable toy”?

I always learn at least one something new from these. Here are “12 Things you Didn’t Know About Disney-Pixar Films.” What didn’t you know?

The first teaser trailer came out this week for The Good Dinosaur. It’s got an interesting premise, for sure. Are you excited for this film, which comes out in November?

Remember how I didn’t know they were making a Tron 3, so I was surprised to hear that Disney was going forward with the project? Yeah…now they aren’t.

Looks like one of my 90s Disney favorites is potentially being remade…Sister Act.  Also being planned…a Night on Bald Mountain live action film.

Welcome to the riff-off!  Today’s song topic…Songs from Disney Broadway Casts! Let’s see who can bring it.

Also, Todrick Hall sings his way through the Disney catalog with “The Evolution of Disney Music.”

I have to wait until 2017?! A new animated series has been greenlit for the Disney Channel all about Tangled. Are you excited about this one? Curious to see where they go with this.

We now have a start date for the PBS special all about Walt Disney.  I’m excited! Are you?

    Thanks for the update, Rikki! Very excited for the PBS special that airs a week before our trip. What a good way to kick things off a little early.

    I cannot believe we have to wait until 2017 for the Tangled series. What I’ve read makes it sound SUPER promising!
