On The Muppet Show Tonight

In Case You Missed It – Disney News and Rumors

We’ve seen the beautiful work that’s taken place with the costumes that have been created for the new Disney Festival of Fantasy parade at the Magic Kingdom. In this interview with Mirena Rada, a costume designer for the parade, we learn “What Really Goes into a Disney Parade Costume.” It really is incredible the amount of work that went into these costumes…like the fact that to coral found in The Little Mermaid unit was baked for 16 hours!

It’s been all over the news. I’m sure you have probably seen it by now, but in case you haven’t, one of the fish tanks at T-REX Restaurant in Florida’s Downtown Disney broke on Monday evening, and water came gushing out of it. If you’ve missed the reports, here’s a video story of the crazy events. (When I said I wanted seafood tonight for dinner, I didn’t mean I wanted it to come pouring out onto my plate from this fish tank I’m currently sitting under…haha!)

Nostalgic for the “good old days’? Take a look at “29 Things You’ll Never See At Disney World Again.” I miss the Empty Nest and Golden Girls houses.

Oh my gosh! Best ever! To celebrate their movie, Muppets Most Wanted, The Muppets have started their own Instagram account. These are classic! How did I not know this existed earlier?

Also, this week, People included an article where kids interviewed the Muppets, and they asked some very thought provoking questions.

Disney held its shareholder meeting this week and part of the big news was more information about Star Wars: Episode VII. Apparently it’s going to begin filming in May, and the story line will be set 30 years after the events of Return of the Jedi. It will follow a trio of new young leads, along with some very familiar faces. Variety shares more about this epic saga.

Also announced at the shareholders meeting is that they’ll be working on Cars 3 and The Incredibles 2! Find out more. Which one are you more excited about?

Speaking of Pixar movies…have you ever wonder what goes into creating one? In this fantastic excerpt from the book Creativity, Inc. by Ed Catmull, you’ll get to see just a little bit about how the magic truly happens and how small suggestions can change a movie for the better. It could just be the key to Pixar’s success.

This really was a big week for movie news…because this week the trailer for Maleficent came out, too. Make sure to check it out. I have to admit, this movie seems kind of interesting. And I wasn’t originally interested before.

In Case We Missed It

What did we miss? Send your idea attached to both Frozen and Saving Mr. Banks (both on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital Download now!) and send both to with the words “In Case You Missed It” in the subject line.

    Rikki, the forthcoming Catmull book is actually called “Creativity, Inc.”
