Weekly Disney Roundup: October 28, 2012

Disney Interactive is apparently working on a video game code named "Toy Box" and will be reportedly be the first time Disney and Pixar characters will interact in any format! Not much else is known yet, but it sounds super interesting. More here.

Disneyland pumpkin carving! The Brave one is probably my favorite, such gorgeous lettering!

This Tumblr post about Cinderella seriously made me laugh out loud.

It's almost Halloween! Have you guys had your yearly watching of Hocus Pocus yet? I watched it yesterday. Still just as weird and just as delightful and by far the most uses of the words "damn" and "virgin" in any Disney movie ever.

Disney Magic #49: Keep Moving Forward...To the Future!

After a few bumpy weeks, Meet the Robinsons looks like it's the first step on the road to Disney getting back to what it does best. All this from a movie that includes time travel, a meatball fight, talking frogs, a bowler hat guy, a dinosaur and the second Adam West role in two weeks.

"Once you have a daughter, no matter how tough, thuggish, or introverted you might be, you’re going to play princess with reckless abandon in front of others knowing that if anyone sees you they’re going to understand. Especially if that someone is another dad."
Well if this isn't the cutest thing you've seen all week, I don't know what is.

lisseemae on tumblr made this truly awesome FLIK card costume for Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party this year. Too funny!

More about the Be Our Guest restaurant. This is just too freaking pretty, you guys. I hadn't seen any of the West Wing stuff before this, it looks amazing!

I believe I shared the Dapper Dan's singing "Grim Grinning Ghosts" last year, so I thought I'd share "This is Halloween" this year!

This awesome photo from flickr user asterix611 shows off Disney's freshly built giant castle ice sculpture in New York City. It was used to announce Limited Time Magic, a new promotion Disney parks are doing next year, which basically involves a special event every month or so. You can read more about it here!

Weekly Disney Roundup: October 14, 2012

Pixar's latest Toy Story short, Partysaurus Rex, is now available online! Go check it out here.

i09 shared some lovely Snow White concept art this week. I hadn't seen quite a bit of it, and it's all very lovely. Check that out here.

A bunch of stuff in Disney World's new Fantasyland section is under soft opening right now. Here's a view of the Beast's castle and Be Our Guest restaurant from insidethemagic on flickr. You can't even go in it just yet, just a little preview, but it's so cool to see it all in one piece after seeing bits and pieces for so long!

Disney Magic #48 - It's Chicken Little! Made on Computers!

Chicken Little marks Disney's first fully computer animated movie (because the water in Dinosaur was live action) but how does the end result turn out. Lots of famous celebrity voices here, lots of references to popular songs. A couple of burp/pee jokes thrown in there. But yes, this is a Disney movie and not a Dreamworks movie. Though if you were confused, it's quite understandable.

Weekly Disney Roundup: October 7, 2012

The new Peter Pan blu-ray cover is super pretty! It doesn't come out of the vault until next year, though.

So I'm moving in immediately, anyone else want to join me? Someone else can take the haunted bathroom, it would scare me to death in the middle of the night.

I can't imbed the cool new video of the Paperman animation process, so you should totally go check it out. I can't say I fully understand everything, but it looks amazing!

Frankenweenie is out in theaters! Are you guys going to go see it? I really liked the original short but I'm not sure if I'm going to see it yet.

Disney Magic #47: The Last 2D Animation Disney EVER Does (you know, for the next five years.)

It's time to look at Home on the Range, perhaps one of the least popular movies in the Disney Lineup. Often credited with ending the 2D animation for the next several years, We take a look at what we thought for a while would be the end of a major chapter in Disney, and animation, history. A movie about cow bounty hunters.
