For many of us lifelong gearheads, our gateway drug to cars, provided to us as children, was the racing exploits of a sentient 1963 Volkswagen Beetle named Herbie. The music from that first movie, The Love Bug, still plays in my head when I actually manage to pass someone. But what if that famous music was stolen?
Disney interrupted your Monday Night Football halftime show on ESPN to air this new trailer for the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie. They ran ads for the ad, and now the ad is finally here. Enjoy this ad, especially considering that its existence reduced your exposure to Chris Berman.
Yesterday, we learned that Disney is adding some absolutely massive Star Wars expansions to their Florida and California parks. Now here’s a video showing the highlights of Bob Iger’s keynote speech—along with more concept art that wasn’t officially released.
This is The Autobots. It’s due out next month in Chinese theaters. The Autobots, eh? But it’s not just the title that seems familiar...
History repeats itself. Yesterday, there was a completely preventable death on a racetrack. The fatal crash was the result of a series of mistakes and bad decisions that compounded into tragedy.
I don’t think I was aware there was a track at Disney World, and this accident that killed a (probable) driving instructor is a tragic way to find out about it. The track is used by the Exotic Driving Experience, and the 24 year-old driver seems to have been a client, and the 36 year-old passenger, Gary Terry, was…
Many of you who have gone car shopping have encountered some interesting characters on the sales-floor. But for the past four years Chevrolet has been taking advice from Mickey Mouse and Goofy in order to make your car-buying experience more pleasant. I guess it really is a small world after all.
I don't ever recall having the desire to nuzzle a bus. Maybe the Catbus from My Neighbor Totoro? This brand new "Duffy Bus" from Tokyo Disney Resort certainly invites snuggles. Come here, bus. How about a hug?
When I was growing up, Disney's TaleSpin was just something that came on the TV while I was wearing my pajamas. Thinking back on things, I played witness to a show completely out of its mind.
Somewhere in Los Angeles, a group of executives gather to discuss their next big tentpole film: Boats. This comedic short envisions the cynical development meeting in which merchandising ideas come before story.
Disney has laid off the staff of LucasArts and cancelled all current projects.
Disney and Pixar are taking the Cars franchise one step further with a new anthropomorphic feature film set to be released in 2013 — Planes. Check out the trailer above and cross your fingers for Chuck Yeager, Howard Hughes and Top Gun inside jokes. (Hat tip to Autoblog!)
At a Thursday midnight showing, I sat in a theater filled with nerds waiting for the start of Tron Legacy in 3D. Why were we all there? Light cycles, of course.
The Disney-produced "Magic Highway" animated short presented how 1950s futurists viewed future transportation. It's equally prescient (LifeFlight, sprawl), ridiculous (nuclear cars, air-conditioned roads) and patriarchal (mom to the mall). But what from these highways of future past came true?
The coolest advertising feat here at Comic-Con was Disney dropping a full-size model of the new Tron: Legacy Light Cycle behind a replica storefront of Kevin Flynn's Arcade. We were there to see it unveiled live. Full gallery below.
Two monorails collided on Sunday at the Disney World park in Orlando. Witnesses say a single train was stopped at the Ticket and Transport Center when a second train rammed it from the rear.
Miley Cyrus, otherwise known as Hannah Montana, has joined the driving masses with her newly obtained learner's permit. Be careful if you live within a drunken drive of Hollywood.
Apparently, Walt Disney had a deal with American Motors back in '55, allowing them to use a crypto-Mickey Mouse character in their ads. While this Nash ad isn't quite as twisted as the Disembodied Mickey Head Mitsubishi ad, it's still a bit strange to see a family of animated mice shilling for the Pacer's ancestor.
