Love It Up News 2 - Episode 1: 16 Things That Zendaya Instagrams That a Normal Teen Never Would




We’ve loved Zendaya since she first graced our TV screens on the Disney Channel hit Shake It Up! and even though she’s growing up, she’s still awesome and a total badass. Yes, she has killer style and seems totally down to earth, but she’s not your average teenager. Okay, so Zendaya is a lot more like you than most stars — she did just graduate from high school after all — but when it comes to social media she is NOT your average teen.

Zendaya’s former Shake It Up! co-star, Bella Thorne posts over-the-top Instagrams, so it’s not that surprising that when it comes to social media Zendaya posts some totally unrealistic pictures too. For starters the K.C. Undercover star LOVES expensive shoes, which we would also love if we, you know, had a TON of money. Oh, and she’s got her own billboard in Los Angeles. You know what, why don’t we just prove our point with her pics below:

1. Front row reunions. Don’t you and your BFF have mini reunions sitting front row at Fashion Week? Ya, we didn’t think so.



2. TV promos. This is basically the ultimate selfie, but way cooler. Not only does Zendaya have her own show right now, but she also has proof of it with this ad. It’s so badass, just like her.



3. Concerts on the field. Okay, we admit some people do get to step onto a real-life NFL football field, but Zendaya makes those people look like bums. She’s actually sung on the Carolina Panther’s field! #Jealous.



4. Heels that cost more than your whole closet combined. Z LOVES her Christian Louboutin heels and we don’t blame her at all, they are gorgeous shoes. Sadly, no teen could afford even one pair of these heels (they cost around $1,400 a pair) let alone numerous pairs like Zendaya does.



5. All hail the Dali Lama. NBD, Zendaya is just hanging out with the Dali Lama, like all the cool kids at your high school. Oh wait, that would NEVER happen.



6. But first, let me read my book. You all read YA novels like John Green’s Paper Towns, but none of us read books we actually wrote. It’s very cool but not realistic at all.



7. Sketch-tastic. Let’s be honest if someone drew you a cool picture like this you’d Instagram it. So we’re going to give Z a pass on this one.

8. Video cameos. Not only is Z BFFs with Taylor Swift, but she starred in her music video for “Bad Blood” as Cut Throat and it was epic. This is so NOT real life!



9. Goody two-shoes. We thought Zendaya was cool based on her singing, dancing and acting skills, but this makes her even more cool. If that’s even possible. The California native is venturing to South Africa as a part of the UNAIDS group. Btw if we could do this, we’d sign up ASAP.



10. Sixth Harmony. Causal selfies with your crew are a must as a teen, too bad our crew doesn’t include the lovely ladies of Fifth Harmony. #SquadGoals.



11. Working on her close up. The Oakland native is so cute and pretty, so it’s no surprise that she looks flawless in her photo shoots. Sadly, teens days consist of school and homework not photo shoots and looking at proofs of themselves.



12. Sneakers with a major price tag. Yes, you all have cool kicks and fun-colored workout shoes, but the 18-year-old actress gives us major #ShoesdayTuesday envy with her sneakers. They cost at least $700 a pair! That’s crazy.



13. Billboard babe. If taking selfies with celebrities isn’t enough of a clue that the Disney darling isn’t your average teen, seeing her face on a giant billboard definitely proves it. Unlike your normal teenager, who posts pictures for likes, Zendaya gets like a million mental likes when people see her photo on Sunset Blvd. every day.



14. Red carpet chic. Not only does Zendaya look fierce on the reg, but she gets to hit the red carpet circuit all the time and she’s always dressed in designer duds. Basically she’s living every girl’s dream.



15. Behind-the-scenes fashion perks. Some lucky ladies work in fashion or intern for super cool companies, but Z is all about the exclusive fashion moments. Seriously, how many people can say they shopped a designer’s collection in their private show room?



16. Model status. Fashion campaigns, magazine covers, TV shows… Zendaya isn’t normal. Sorry.

Disneyland: 60 things you might not know about the Magic Kingdom (Disney Ranking Special Edition)


A TV show named "Gunsmoke" made its debut, and another named "Make Room for Daddy" won two Emmys. Elvis Presley and Pat Boone had young hearts all shook up, and for the first time, they could listen to those crooners and others on a new gadget called a pocket transistor radio. A new car cost $1,900, gasoline was 23 cents a gallon and rents averaged $87 a month.

It was 1955. On July 17 of that year — a year in which the last occupying troops left Austria and the Brooklyn Dodgers won the World Series — Disneyland opened its doors. If the first day was any indicator of its future, we might have expected Walt Disney's amusement park to fade into oblivion, much like Georgia Gibbs' No. 1 Billboard hit "Dance With Me Henry" did. (Quick, hum a few bars.) The chaos of Disneyland's debut played out in front of a national television audience, and predictions of epic failure abounded.

Sixty years later, we know how wrong those naysayers were.

With nearly 17 million annual visitors, Disneyland is the biggest draw in California and among the top tourist destinations in the world. The park's drawing power persuaded Disney to build theme parks in Florida, France, Japan and China.

Other amusement parks, such as Denmark's Tivoli Gardens, existed, but Disneyland established a modern theme-park template that has been often duplicated but rarely matched.

We think we know Disneyland; after all, we've had 60 years to get acquainted. But do we really? Reporters Christopher Reynolds and Brady MacDonald have compiled a list of 60 things you might not know on the diamond anniversary of the theme park that became the gold standard.

1. Much of Disneyland is built to scale to create the illusion of a full-scale experience. The trains circling the park and the Mark Twain Riverboat are built to 5/8 scale. Sleeping Beauty Castle and the storefronts on Main Street, U.S.A., use forced perspective to make the buildings appear taller.

2. More than a million corn dogs are sold annually at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure Park. L.A. Times restaurant critic Jonathan Gold calls the Disneyland corn dog the best he's ever had.

3. The Rivers of America in Frontierland is 4 to 8 feet deep. The first time the man-made river was filled in 1955, the water seeped through the sandy soil. The riverbed was eventually lined with clay to prevent leaking.

4. The Rivers of America held 6.16 million gallons of water the first time it was filled and lost 30,000 gallons a day to evaporation.

5. Maintenance crews dump 12 pounds of green or brown dye into the water a couple of times a week to color the river.

6. The 8- to 15-foot-tall berm that surrounds Disneyland was designed to keep out the real world and keep in the fantasy world. The dirt for the berm came from the excavation of the Rivers of America. Some of the 350,000 cubic yards of excavated dirt was also used to create what would become Tom Sawyer Island.

7. The Disney family crest can be found over the entrance to Sleeping Beauty Castle. The coat of arms was placed above the arch in 1965, about a year before Walt Disney's death.

8. About 84 million Mickey Mouse ears have been sold since 1955. The Mouseketeers first wore the hats in the 1950s on "The Mickey Mouse Club" television show.

9. More than 750 million people have visited Disneyland since opening day. It took just seven weeks for the first million visitors to walk through the gates. Attendance was 3.6 million in 1955-56, its first year of operation.

10. More than 50 scuba divers maintain the water-based attractions and waterways at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure.

11. Dream of getting married in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle? You can, but it will set you back $120,000 for an after-hours ceremony. A trip in Cinderella's crystal coach is included, but if you want Mickey and Minnie Mouse to attend, it will cost you an additional $1,425 for a 30-minute visit.

12. Disneyland has a "jail" for disruptive guests (Disney-speak for visitors). They're typically held in a security office until Anaheim police arrive. Undercover Disney security officers have been known to watch for shoplifters.

13. No gum is sold at Disney theme parks. Walt Disney didn't want visitors to step in discarded chewing gum.

14. A small lamp remains lighted in the window above the firehouse on Main Street, U.S.A., in memory of Walt Disney. He often stayed overnight in the 500-square-foot apartment during construction of Disneyland. A larger Disney family apartment was later built above New Orleans Square.

15. The apartment above the firehouse on Main Street, U.S.A., includes a dressing area, a kitchenette and a bathroom with a shower. The couches fold out to make additional beds.

16. On opening day, Disneyland contained 800 mostly nonindigenous species of plants from as far away as Australia, New Zealand, China and Japan.

17. More than 12,000 orange trees were removed from the 160-acre plot that became Disneyland. Some of the discarded trees were replanted upside down along the banks of the Jungle Cruise to look like mangrove roots.

18. The route of the Jungle Cruise was laid out with a Jeep outfitted to simulate the length and width of a riverboat.

19. The Mark Twain stern-wheeler, built at a cost of $150,000, was constructed in pieces and assembled at Disneyland. The upper deck was fabricated in Burbank, and the hull was built at a San Pedro shipyard, trucked overnight to the park and lifted by crane into the Rivers of America.

20. Fantasyland's carousel operated at Toronto's Sunnyside Park for decades before being moved to Disneyland in advance of the park's opening. The original carousel featured a menagerie of animals but now has only horses. Additional horses were acquired from other amusement parks.

21. The pipe organ in the Haunted Mansion's ballroom was reused from the set of the movie "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea." Capt. Nemo's organ was part of a Tomorrowland display featuring props from the movie before it was relocated to the New Orleans Square ride.

22. Walt Disney often walked around Disneyland, stood in lines with visitors and talked to children about their experiences at the park. He handed out pre-signed photo cards to visitors who asked for autographs.

23. The costumed Disney characters were not present during the park's early days. Walt's brother Roy, who ran the business side of Walt Disney Co., was concerned the characters would be tainted if the theme park failed.

24. When Tom Sawyer Island opened in 1956, kids could borrow fishing poles at Huckleberry Finn's Fishing Pier and fish in a small pond stocked with 15,000 catfish, perch and bluegill.

25. The Golden Horseshoe saloon was modeled after the dance hall in the 1953 movie "Calamity Jane." A box next to the stage was reserved for Walt Disney and his guests.

26. The original Disneyland parking lot held 12,175 cars. Much of the lot has been turned into Disney California Adventure Park, although a portion of the parking area remains behind the Tower of Terror attraction.

27. The wooden figure of an American Indian on Main Street, U.S.A., stood in front of a fine tobacco shop next door to Disneyland's cinema until 1991. Other independent retail shops have included a pharmacy, a shoe store and a lock-and-key shop. There was once an intimate apparel boutique at Disneyland known as the Wizard of Bras.

28. Many of the largest trees in Disneyland once dotted the routes of the Santa Monica, Pomona and Santa Ana freeways. Disneyland arborists paid $25 for each of the 5- to 10-foot trees, which were moved to Anaheim before the park opened. Today, about 18,000 trees can be found throughout the Disneyland resort.

29. Disneyland's work force amounts to 28,000 cast members, Disney-speak for employees.

30. The E ticket, beloved by generations of visitors because it granted passage on the most coveted rides, didn't exist in 1955. The first E tickets were issued in 1959 for use on then-new Matterhorn Bobsleds and Submarine Voyage rides.

31. Napa Rose, the fancy restaurant in Disney's Grand Californian Hotel, claims a wine collection of 17,000 bottles.

32. The Disneyland Hotel, which opened in October 1955 with 100 rooms, now has 975.

33. In 1952, before Anaheim emerged as the location for Disneyland, Walt Disney went to the Burbank City Council with a proposal for a park. The council members turned him away, and one said, "We don't want the carny atmosphere in Burbank."

34. On opening day, the beloved Jungle Cruise was known as Explorer Boat Ride Through the Rivers of Mexico, Africa, Central and South America, and Australia.

35. Ronald L. Ziegler, who went on to become Richard Nixon's presidential press secretary, worked during college as a wise-cracking pilot on the Jungle Cruise. Later, in the 1970s, Pixar and Walt Disney Animation Studios Chief Creative Officer John Lasseter had the same job.

36. Though many people know that Steve Martin worked at the Disneyland Magic Shop in his early days, fewer know that Martin's friend and teenage co-worker at the shop, John McEuen, went on to found the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band.

37. New Orleans Square includes seven ficus trees transplanted from Pershing Square in downtown Los Angeles. Disney landscape specialist Bill Evans learned in 1962 that Pershing Square was being redone, and he made a deal to buy and transport the trees; their tops had to be cut off so they would make it through underpasses.

38. Among the first drivers on the Autopia ride on opening day were Frank Sinatra (and his son) and Sammy Davis Jr.

39. Richard Carpenter, brother and bandmate of the late Karen Carpenter, was the keyboard half of a piano-banjo duo on Main Street in 1967. He was fired for playing too much contemporary music.

40. In 1970, former Disney executive Van France founded Club 55, a group for people who worked for Disney the year Disneyland opened. Disneyland officials estimate the club's membership at 15 remaining retirees.

41. Disney officials usually have less to say about Club 33, which has its headquarters above the Blue Bayou Restaurant in New Orleans Square. The exclusive club apparently dates to 1967. Walt Disney conceived it as a way to entertain investors and other VIPs. Membership costs $12,000 per year, and you're not supposed to transfer or sell your privileges.

42. Disneyland's first Snow White was JoAnn Dean Killingsworth. An aspiring dancer and skater, Killingsworth was hired to wave at guests from a float on Disneyland's opening day. Killingsworth, who lived in Brea, died in June at age 91.

43. Over the years, Disneyland has celebrated two different opening days, for understandable reasons. On July 17, 1955, the park opened to press and invited guests, and ABC devoted 90 minutes of live coverage to the event. (Announcer Hank Weaver sat behind a typewriter in the press room to introduce master of ceremonies Art Linkletter, who introduced colleagues Bob Cummings and Ronald Reagan and pointed out the arrival of Danny Thomas and his family.) The next day, the park opened to the public; adult admission, $1, children 50 cents.

44. Disney studio executives didn't share Walt's interest in creating Disneyland, so he set up a separate company, WED Enterprises, to do advance work. To cover costs, he borrowed $100,000 against his life insurance policy.

45. The original 19th century gaslight lampposts along Main Street, U.S.A., came from Baltimore, Boston and Philadelphia.

46. The Kodak Camera Center on Main Street, U.S.A., was owned by Linkletter, a friend of Disney.

47. In its first year, Disneyland had revenue of $10 million — one-third of the total gross of the Disney studio. In today's dollars, that would be $88.7 million.

48. In summer 1970, somebody circulated gag fliers proposing a yippie invasion of Disneyland on Aug. 6. On the appointed day, dozens of yippies, or perhaps generic hippies, gathered on Tom Sawyer Island and raised a Viet Cong flag. Management took the rare step of closing the park five hours early, prompting a bold headline (with photos) on the next day's front page of The Times: "Yippies' Outburst Shuts Disneyland."

49. When the park opened, it had both pay and free toilets. Soon after, all bathrooms became free.

50. Walt Disney and author Ray Bradbury were friends. One day at lunch, Bradbury offered to help rebuild Tomorrowland. Disney is said to have replied: "Ray, it's no use … you're a genius and I'm a genius … after two weeks we'd kill each other!" Later, Bradbury called it "the nicest turndown I've ever had."

51. By the time It's a Small World opened at Disneyland in 1966, it had already been seen by more than 10 million visitors during its two years at the 1964-65 New York World's Fair.

52. Walt Disney had a lot of input into Pirates of the Caribbean, but he died in December 1966, about four months before the ride opened.

53. In 1971, stage psychic the Amazing Criswell predicted that by 1999, Disneyland would be covered by a plastic bubble, its weather controlled by a switch.

54. Though Walt Disney sported a mustache for most of his adult life, Disneyland banned facial hair on its workers from 1957 until 2000, when restrictions were eased.

55. If Disneyland's original $1 adult admission fee had increased in lockstep with the U.S. Labor Department's Consumer Price Index, today it would be $8.87. Instead, it's $99. (But in the old days, you had to buy ride tickets separately. Now they're included.)

56. In September 1959, Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev made a historic visit to Los Angeles and asked to see Disneyland. His minders first said yes, and then no, after Los Angeles Police Chief William Parker said he couldn't guarantee Khrushchev's safety. "Why not?" Khrushchev protested at a public luncheon. "What is it? Do you have rocket-launching pads there? ... Is there an epidemic of cholera there? … Have gangsters taken hold of the place?"

57. In Mr. Toad's Wild Ride, the Toad Hall library includes these titles: "For Whom the Toads Croak" and "A Tadpole Grows in Brooklyn."

58. When it opened in June 1959, Disneyland's monorail was the first daily operating monorail in the Western Hemisphere.

59. Sleeping Beauty Castle is 77 feet tall. Neuschwanstein, the 19th century Bavarian castle that's widely credited as its inspiration, is 213 feet high. (Neuschwanstein, about 80 miles southwest of Munich, Germany, gets 1.4 million visitors yearly.)

60. For height reasons, there's a good chance Mickey Mouse and many other costumed characters are played by female cast members. Male cast members portray the taller characters such as Goofy and Sheriff Woody. Princess characters have strict height requirements: They must be 5 feet 4 inches to 5 feet 8 inches tall.

Candace Cameron to Star in Hallmark Original Movie REAL MURDERS: AN AURORA TEAGARDEN MYSTERY, 7/26


Candace Cameron Bure ("Just The Way You Are," "Full House") is back on the case as a librarian investigating small town murders in "Real Murders: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery," a Hallmark Movies & Mysteries Original World Premiere Sunday, July 26 (9pm ET/PT, 8C). "Real Murders" is the second movie in the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries "Aurora Teagarden" Mystery Movie franchise, which is based on the books by #1 New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris. Along with Bure, five-time Golden Globe(R) nominee Marilu Henner ("Taxi," "Signed, Sealed, Delivered") headlines an ensemble cast that includes Lexa Doig ("Continuum"), Bruce Dawson ("Fifty Shades of Grey"), Robin Dunne ("The Good Witch's Destiny"), Peter Benson ("Heartbeat") and Miranda Frigon ("A Cookie Cutter Christmas").

"This exciting adaptation of Charlaine Harris' book will have loyal Aurora Teagarden fans and new viewers alike on the edges of their seats," said Michelle Vicary, Executive Vice President of Programming & Publicity, Crown Media Family Networks. "The incredible talent in this film - lead by Crown Media Family darling Candace Cameron Bure and award-winning actress Marilu Henner - has transformed another Harris page turner into a must-watch television event."

Fifth Harmony Release Hot Spanish Version Of ‘Worth It’


Girl group Fifth Harmony have just released the Spanish version of their summer mega-hit “Worth It,” y es muy buena! (That’s “very good,” thank you very much.) The Spanish language rework of the hotter-than-hot Reflection single hit iTunes on Friday July 10, and features the bilingual queens getting down en español.

Unfortunately, it seems that the rework, titled “Dame Esta Noche,” does not feature Fifth Harmony group member Lauren Jauregui (who actually does speak Spanish fluently) for some strange reason. However, rapper Kid Ink, who collaborated on the original track, is still featured during the English-language rap verse. (Why they didn’t also rerecord the rap verse in Spanish, we’ll never know.)

Either way, the Spanish re-recording was undoubtedly a brilliant (and wonderfully inclusive) move for the girls, especially considering their Miami roots and the fact that three of the five members are of Hispanic descent (Jauregui, Ally Hernandez, and Camila Cabello). In fact, you might even say the re-recording was… worth it.





After all, the group has seen its biggest hit so far with the track, which has become Harmony’s highest charting single in the U.S. as well as the group’s first to hit the Top 20, peaking at number fourteen. In addition, “Worth It” is also notably the first song by a girl group to hit above the top fifteen spot in the U.S. in over six years. (The last song to do so was “Jai Ho!” by The Pussycat Dolls in 2009. Geez, now we’re feeling nostalgic!)

Escandalos Disney - Ariana Grande’s Doughnut Abuse Is Now a Police Matter


What started as an unsanitary game turned into a scandal, and now Ariana Grande’s doughnut-licking antics are the focus of a police investigation.

The Associated Press reports that police in Lake Elsinore, CA — the location of what’s rapidly becoming the most famous doughnut shop in America, Wolfee Donuts — are working in conjunction with Riverside County public health officials to identify how the sweet treats were left unprotected (and thus, so ready for Ari’s tongue-grazing in the first place). The singer was visiting the shop with backup dancer and rumored boyfriend Ricky Alvarez when the pair was caught on camera abusing doughnuts that they did not appear to purchase.

A spokeswoman for the Riverside County Department of Environmental Health, Dottie Ellis-Merki, told the AP that the agency was looking into the violation of state food laws, as indicated in the store’s CCTV footage.
“During the investigation, the manager did state they normally don’t leave donuts out like was shown in the video,” Ellis-Merki said to the AP via e-mail. “The employee went to the back to retrieve freshly made donuts by request of the customer and left the trays out while getting other trays.” Surely, the errant employee couldn’t have known that Ariana would find the unguarded doughnuts more tempting than a hot pie left out on a windowsill.

Cashier Mayra Solis told the AP that Grande was “really rude.” Her alleged sour behavior may be attributed to her open disdain for American junk food consumption, which she says sparked her controversial “I hate America” comment on the tape.

“As an advocate for healthy eating, food is very important to me and I sometimes get upset by how freely we as Americans eat and consume things without giving any thought to the consequences that it has on our health and society as a whole,” the singer said in a statement yesterday (July 8). It’s still unclear what she was doing in a shop that peddles what she calls “poison” in the same statement.

There’s no word on whether Grande herself faces charges, but maybe she should talk to her friend Justin Bieber about the costly repercussions that can stem from a seemingly harmless prank.

Reminder: Hallmark’s Ornament Launch In July Is Not Christmas Creep


We take a firm stand against Holiday Creep, which is when retailers start to merchandise and decorate for a given holiday months in advance. The offending holiday is usually, but not always, Christmas. Every year around this time, we hear from exasperated shoppers who walk by a Hallmark gift shop and see their display of new Christmas ornaments, leading our readers to wonder what this world is coming to. Yet Hallmark’s Christmas displays aren’t what they seem.

Reader Anthony snapped this photo at the Mall of America last Friday, and was understandably surprised to see Christmas decorations out before Independence Day. That’s just because he doesn’t understand the ancient and mysterious ways of Hallmark ornament collectors.

Way back in 2009, we first learned about Hallmark’s terrible Christmas tradition. “We’ve been holding Ornament Premiere in July for 15+ years,” a Hallmark representative explained to Consumerist, explaining why the company needed to hold its Christmas ornament premiere during July. That means now the company has been at it for more than 20 years, and they claim that the early introduction of these ornaments isn’t meant to make ordinary shoppers think about the holiday.

“The premiere event is mainly for ornament collectors, and yes, there are a lot of them, that shop year-round,” the same Hallmark representative explained to us back in 2009. “They would be really happy if put out the next year’s ornaments on December 26, but we wait until July.”

Maybe they could try that in the future, or perhaps they could even start putting out items for the following Christmas before Thanksgiving, achieving peak Christmas Creep and causing the whole idea of marketing to collapse on itself.

Star-Spangled Skies: Fireworks at Disneyland - Courtesy of D23


The Fourth of July is upon us—that most American of holidays, celebrating the bravery of our Founding Fathers and the generations after who fought for our continued freedom. And nothing says “Fourth of July” quite like a magnificent display of fireworks! Disneyland Park has cornered the market for decades on firework displays, culminating with Disneyland Forever, their newest spectacular in honor of the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration.

It all started in 1956 (just one year after the Park’s opening) when Walt Disney first dazzled nighttime guests with a fireworks display, entitled Fantasy In the Sky. Back then, firework fuses were lit by very steady hand. But by the 1960s, an electronic system was created to launch the shells into the air… and shortly thereafter, the increasingly popular shows were synchronized to music. Tinker Bell’s iconic “flight” over Sleeping Beauty Castle was first added in 1961, and other characters (including Dumbo and Mary Poppins) followed.

Quintessential displays over the years have included Believe … There’s Magic in the Stars, which fused storytelling with innovative pyrotechnic effects; the breathtaking Christmas-themed Believe… In Holiday Magic; the 50th anniversary Remember… Dreams Come True; the enchanting production Magical (which brought Dumbo back to the skies above the Castle); and last year’s re-invented Fantasy In The Sky. And it all leads up to the new Disneyland Forever, which surrounds audiences with magic like never before!



Whether watching from Main Street, U.S.A., it’s a small world, the Rivers of America, or even within sight of the Matterhorn, each guest has a different experience of Disneyland Forever—as every location comes to life with unique combinations of color and light. The show features sequences themed after timeless films like Mary Poppins, Frozen, and The Lion King, and the pyrotechnics join with amazing projection mapping technology to immerse guests into the Disney tales that surround them. Other special effects include dozens of inflatable units and moving window “actuators” that make Main Street, U.S.A. truly come alive. And don’t forget the show’s brand-new musical score! It includes a very special closing theme, “A Kiss Goodnight,” written by Disney Legend Richard M. Sherman and performed by Broadway’s original Mary Poppins, Ashley Brown.

Disneyland Forever is the latest (and greatest!) in a long line of memorable fireworks spectaculars at Disneyland Park—and if you’re visiting this coming Fourth of July, take note: Following that evening’s performance, for one night only, guests will enjoy a patriotic pyrotechnic grand finale to celebrate America’s birthday!

Star Wars: The Force Awakens at Comic-Con: What you'll see … and what you won't


“Your eyes can deceive you. Don’t trust them.” So says Obi-Wan Kenobi, but Entertainment Weekly has learned some details about the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens panel at San Diego Comic-Con that you can count on.

First of all, the presentation this Friday afternoon will not include a trailer or any new clips of the movie. The next trailer will be coming in the fall, according to sources with knowledge of the project.

But don’t go hurling your cup of blue milk at the wall just yet. There will be other surprises.

Roughly six months before the Dec. 18 release, the Comic-Con panel will offer a behind-the-scenes look at the highly secretive film, which was completely locked down to press during production. (It’s still locked down. Lucasfilm and parent company Disney declined requests for comment.)

Director J.J. Abrams, screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan, and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy are already confirmed as part of the panel, which will be moderated by Nerdist impresario and Talking Dead host Chris Hardwick.

Although EW hasn’t learned just which of the cast members will be joining them, our spies say there will be several actors who haven’t yet spoken publicly about their roles venturing onstage in Hall H.

In advance of The Force Awakens panel, there will be two publishing presentations Friday morning about upcoming Star Wars books, but those will also be somewhat restricted in what they can reveal.

Chuck Wendig (Blackbirds, Under the Empyrean Sky), author of the novel Star Wars: Aftermath, will be discussing his personal history with the galaxy far, far away during a Friday morning panel, but won’t be able to dive too deeply into the plot of his book, which explores the battles between the Empire and the Rebellion following the events of Return of the Jedi. Much of that will remain under wraps until closer to the book’s Sept. 4 debut.

A panel for middle-grade books will have more to reveal, since most of their stories are retellings of the original trilogy. Alexandra Bracken (the Darkest Minds series), will discuss The Princess, the Scoundrel, and the Farm Boy—a is series of first-person perspectives from Leia, Luke, and Han about the events from the original Star Wars.

Adam Gidwitz (A Tale Dark and Grim series), will explore retelling The Empire Strikes Back from Luke’s perspective in So You Want To Be a Jedi, and Tom Angleberger (The Star Wars Origami books), will share his quest to bring humor to Return of the Jedi with Beware the Power of the Dark Side.

Finally, Tony Diterlizzi (The Spiderwick Chronicles) will showcase his picture book retelling of the original trilogy, illustrated with artwork by the late Ralph McQuarrie, the concept artist who devised the look for much of George Lucas’s universe.

Before The Force Awakens trailer hits this fall, there will be even more Star Wars at Disney’s D23 fan convention in Anaheim this August. Until then, remember these words of wisdom from The Emperor …
