Disney Magic #72: Just Keep Swimming...

This episode of Disney Magic goes deep underwater to watch one of the most successful animated movies of all time, Finding Nemo. If you were around in the year or so that followed the release of this movie, it's safe to assume that you've watched this fish adventure approximately a thousand times minimum.

Disney Magic #71: Podcasting inc. - We Podcast Because We Care

The next Pixar movie is the hilarious Monsters Inc. featuring two best friends, a ton of crazy character designs, and a whole lot of metaphors about parenthood that I could have sworn weren't in the movie when I watched it as a kid.

Disney Magic #70: You've STILL Got a Friend in Me.

This week, our movie is the first sequel to a Pixar movie, and will be the only Pixar sequel for quite a while. We get to see Buzz and Woody again out on their next adventure with new toys, toy collectors, and an old, forgotten TV show in the movie that has the all time highest rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Disney Magic #69: A Bug's Story

We continue with Pixar's next movie A Bug's Life. Like Toy Story before it, A Bug's Life takes something that doesn't normally have emotions or feeling (bugs) and then makes you feel things for them. Let's see if this will be a trend when it comes to Pixar.

Disney Roundup: 2/27/2015

A heavy metal version of "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" has found it's way on line and lines up quite nicely with the original Mary Poppins footage to result in a rather well done little video. Check it out:

Disney's live action version of Cinderella is fast approaching, and to celebrate Disney has a special Cinderella themed popcorn bucket that will be avalible at Disney World and at Hollywood Studios.


Speaking of Disney's live action Cinderella film, we can't forget that a new Frozen short will be debuting with the movie, and we have a new trailer for that as well. It's only forty seconds but we'll take pretty much any new Frozen footage that we can get!

And finally in some big Television news, Disney has announced that 2017 will mark the return of their hit animated show Duck Tales on Disney XD. We don't know much of anything about the new show yet, but any chance to get back to Duckburg is one to get excited about!

Weekly Disney Roundup: January 26th 2015

Disneyland has released a video of several characters from rides including Pirates of the Caribbean and The Haunted Mansion singing For the First Time in Forever to celebrate Frozen coming to the park.

Here's a nice little Gallery of some behind the scenes pics from the making of Marry Poppins

Oh My Disney has ranked all of the Disney dogs from cute to cutest. Now your milage may vary on how exactly these dosg should rank but fair warning, Doug from up is on the list, yet somehow does not come in at number one. Full list here.

After the live action version of Cinderella comes out later this year, (and the Jungle Book next year,) Disney's next live action remake of one of their animated classics is going to be Beauty and the Beast. It has been announced that Emma Watson, famous for her role in the Harry Potter movies, will be playing Belle in the live action film. No release date for the movie has been announced yet, but it is said that the movie will start shooting later this year.

That's all for this week, see everyone in February!

Weekly Disney Roundup: January 20th, 2015

Disney's latest movie Big Hero 6 will be released on Blu Ray and DVD on February 24th. To help celebrate that Disney has released a teaser of one of the special features that will be on the DVD, a video that points out all of the Frozen references that the animators hid throughout the movie. Check out the video below.

Some Aladdin concept art was revealed earlier this month, about twelve pieces in total. It's always amazing to look back at these images years after the movie has become a success and think about what made it into the final product, what didn't and what the movie could have been, for better or for worse. (See the entire gallery here)


Finally, Disney has announced the release dates of two of its upcoming, live action movies. 
A live action adaptation of The Jungle Book, directed by John Favreau is scheduled to be released on April 14th, 2017.
Also before that, a live action remake of the 1977 musical Pete's Dragon will be released next year on April 15th, 2016.
