A blockbuster media consolidation deal announced this morning sees Fox handing over nearly its entire empire to ESPN’s corporate parent Disney, with the exceptions of Fox News and the national Fox Sports networks FS1, FS2, BTN, Fox Deportes, and Fox Soccer Plus. Disney will now possess 22 Fox Sports RSNs that hold…
If there’s one constant truth in the Disney Pixar films, it’s that Cars will never make sense. Every Cars movie that comes out only adds to the confusion, and the latest tidbits that’ll stick a potato in your tailpipe have to do with why there are no motorcycles in Cars world, but there are fairy tales.
Cars 2 was not a classic film. It was unfocused and a bit too dependent on plot rather than characters. But it was a solid film. It had great action set pieces and ‘blink and you’ll miss it’ humor. And it doesn’t deserve the death by omission it is currently enduring.
It’s here. After months and months of waiting, the next chapter in the Star Wars saga is upon us, and we finally have our very first look at Star Wars: The Last Jedi. And it’s just as amazing as you were hoping it would be.
On a recent trip to Disney World, I had an unusual experience. I rode a ride. It broke. We were evacuated, and a few minutes later, I got a picture on my phone. It was an empty raft sliding down Splash Mountain, taken at precisely the moment I was walking down the emergency stairwell. It was weird.
Based on what we’ve been told, nothing good is happening in Cars 3. Or, at the very least, nothing simple.
In ruling that Chinese film The Autobots was an illegal copy of Disney and Pixar Animation’s Cars, a Shanghai court fined the movie’s producing and distributing companies $190,000 and ordered them to cease the copyright infringement. But even now, The Autobots’ director continues to say he’s never seen Cars.
And not in the “We finally find out how they reproduce” kind of way.
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.
