Weekly Disney Roundup: March 24, 2013

Finally back with a roundup you guys! It's about time.

A little bit of a peek into what happens after the credits roll. Love this!
This was found via reddit from tumblr, so I can't really source it properly, but it is hilarious none the less. Seriously, Belle, Shakespeare?

The possibility of a Star Wars park happening since Disney bought the franchise has been tossed around quite a bit, and it looks like they might actually go through with it! A survey was sent around to some of the annual passholders for Disneyland in California, and hopefully all of them said "YES PLZ STAR WARS PARK NAO." least, that's as coherent as I can get on the idea.

Downtown Disney in Florida is getting a makeover and a rename, Disney Springs! I'm super excited about this. Downtown Disney has been pretty messy theming-wise and downright sad-looking in some places for a while now, and this all looks lovely. More plans here!

On a more personal note, I'm headed to Disneyland Paris in May! Just a day trip, part of a larger trip to London and Paris, and I'm so excited. I don't know if we have any readers who've been to the parks, but if anyone has any suggestions, do let me know! Photo source.

Team Starkid's next musical is a Wicked-style production based on Jafar from Aladdin called Twisted! There's also a Kickstarter happening over here, and while it's already reached fully-funded, there's still plenty of room for improvement!

Disney Magic #57: One last trip to Agrabah

This week we conclude the Aladdin trilogy with Aladdin and the King of Thieves. This time we get the original Genie back, and also get to meet new characters such as Aladdin's father and...some bad guy with tiny wolverine claws. He didn't have a very memorable name.

Disney Magic #56: And When Disney Magic Returns, So Does Jafar

In this episode, we finally begin our long journey through the world of Disney Sequels. The first of these movies is Return of Jafar, the sequel to Aladdin and what seems to be the first episode of that Aladdin TV show that aired in the 90s. So while the animation is a bit different than our first time with Aladdin, (and the Genie sounds just a tiny bit different as well for some reason) we're off on a brand new adventure.

Disney Magic #55: Disney Magic Returns to Wreck-It!

After taking an extended break to recover from being forced to pick our top ten Disney movies of all time, The Disney Magic podcast returns with a movie that may very well force both Megan and Joel to rethink that list all over again. Disney's latest movie is given the Disney Magic treatment as we talk about Wreck-It Ralph just days after its release on DVD.
