Coming Soon: ‘Pirates of the Caribbean 5’!

OMD has just announced the release date for the next installment in a very popular franchise…Pirates of the Caribbean 5!

Johnny Depp is slated to return as Captain Jack Sparrow because really, who else could play our favorite pirate?

No plot details have been revealed just now, but Inside the Magic has some tidbits for us:

“Pirates” series producer Jerry Bruckheimer’s partnership with Disney recently fizzled out, leaving the future of the franchise unknown.

But with billions of dollars under its belt, the “Pirates” films will surely continue to succeed as long as Captain Jack is on the big screen. The fifth movie’s subtitle is reportedly “Dead Men Tell No Tales” but Disney has not confirmed or announced that just yet.

I have to admit, I still haven’t seen any of these movies other than the first (due to my parent’s rules – don’t ask…).  What are your thoughts on the fifth installment in the Pirates franchise?

See you all real soon.

Indiana Jones Stunt Show Closing? False!

Yesterday, I shared this on Facebook:




One of my Facebook fans, Tracey Noah, asked if I knew when the closing would happen, as she really enjoys the show.  I told her I didn’t know but would research it.

And good news, Tracey: the blog Disney and more has reported the rumors are false!  Doctor Disney has also said the rumors are false, with an update stating that Cast Members were told the show will not be closing in 2014, but he did point out that the show could close in the future.  (Of course, this is obvious: any show/attraction/ride is at the risk of closing...in the future.)

Only the American Idol Experience is confirmed to be be closing to make room for Star Wars additions.

So you still have plenty of time to enjoy one of your favorite shows, Tracey!

For those of you unable to see the show any time soon, here’s a video of the entire show:



Have you seen the Indiana Jones stunt show?  What are your thoughts on its rumored closing? Please comment!

‘Lava’ Character and Plot Details!

LA Times just released details about the plot and characters of Pixar’s upcoming short Lava.

This is Uku, and as LA Times described him, “he’s rusty and prone to eruptions, but with a warm core underneath -- the kind of man James Earl Jones might play.”

But guess what?  He’s a volcano.

Image from LA Times article.

Amazing character design, right?  I love how Uku’s inlet gives him the appearance of protective arms.

As for the plot of Lava, LA Times states:

The seven-minute musical love story between two mountains -- Uku and Lele -- will premiere at the Hiroshima International Animation Festival in Japan in August.

Pixar is always thinking outside the box with their love stories, and I’m positive this one will be just as touching as The Blue Umbrella.

Final note: is LA Times hinting James Earl Jones will play Uku?  Or is that merely for description alone?

Lava will play before Inside Out, opening June 19, 2015.

See y’all real soon.

DCONSTRUCTED: Main Street Electrical Parade

Earlier this year, Disney released DCOSTRUCTED, an entire album full of Disney songs remixed by some of the most popular D.J.'s these days.

Image from a Google search.

Accompanying music videos have also been released.  Here is the one for the remix of the Main Street Electrical Parade.


Video from YouTube.

In my opinion, the remix is only so-so, but the music video is really cool! I love the blurred look on the edges of some shots, and how some of the characters vanish into pixels.
