DisneyVersary 2017 — Preview Pixar’s first-ever VR experience – Coco VR



Pixar’s Dia de los Muertos themed movie “Coco” is about to get a whole new dimension. Pixar Animation Studios announced its first-ever VR experience this morning at Oculus Connect, the fourth annual developer conference in San Jose, Calif. Directed by Ross Haldane Stevenson and produced by Academy Award winner Marc Sondheimer, “Coco VR” is a co-production from Pixar and Oculus with VR creative development and execution by Magnopus. Supervising technical director John Halstead spearheaded the technical efforts for Pixar.

“Coco VR” allows people to explore the worlds of “Coco” with their friends. The next-level social VR Experience will be available on Oculus Rift November 15 and Samsung Gear VR November 22, the day of the film’s U.S. release.



Okay. It’s a little awkward going through the world of the dead, but Pixar has created a very beautiful world that just calls out to be explored. Virtual Reality will be a great way to do just that.

The experience will be available for a sneak peek at the following events and locations:

• Día de los Muertos festivals in Los Angeles, New York City, Houston, Phoenix, Dallas, San Antonio, Oakland and Chicago beginning Oct. 28
• Camp Flog Gnaw Music Festival in Los Angeles on Oct. 28-29

DisneyVersary 2017 - New mermaid series “Siren” to premiere on International Mermaid Day


Mermaids are the new vampires. At least that’s what Disney’s cable channel Freeform is hoping with their new TV series “Siren.” The show had a panel at this week’s New York City Comic-Con where they debuted a first-look clip of the new series.

To the packed room of nearly 1000 fans, Disney also announced that the new original drama will premiere on Thursday March 29, with a special two-hour episode. Perhaps not coincidentally, that’s also International Mermaid Day. No one told me, but Disney obviously hopes dark scary mermaid stories are in vogue right now.



Also announced during the panel was the casting of Aylya Marzoff (“Grandfathered”) and Sedale Threatt Jr. (“Hap and Leonard”) who will both join the cast in recurring roles. Marzoff will portray Katrina, an alpha leader of the mermaid colony, while Threatt Jr. will portray Levi, a warrior merman with an imposing presence.

About the show
What if there was something sinister swimming beneath the sea’s surface? In Freeform’s next epic tale, “Siren,” the coastal town of Bristol Cove, known for its legend of once being home to mermaids, is turned upside down when a mysterious girl (Eline Powell) appears and begins wreaking havoc upon the small fishing town. Using their resources, marine biologists Ben (Alex Roe) and Maddie (Fola Evans-Akingbola) must work together to find out who and what drove this primal hunter of the deep sea to land, and are there more like her out there?

In case you missed it, here is the first trailer for the show from 5 months ago:



“Siren” is based on a story by Eric Wald and Dean White who both serve as executive producers. Emily Whitesell (“Finding Carter”) serves as showrunner and executive producer. Brad Luff, Nate Hopper and RD Robb also serve as executive producers.

DisneyVersary 2017 — Disney releases DisneyNow, a new app that combines live TV, on-demand, games and music


Disney’s streaming service may still be years away, but the company this week has launched a new app for streaming Disney’s series, Disney Channel movies, live TV and music all under one roof, with the release of DisneyNow. The app is designed to consolidate Disney’s existing “Watch” streaming apps into one, including Disney Channel, Disney XD, Disney Junior and Radio Disney.

That suite of TV apps, aimed at kids 2 to 14 years old, have been downloaded over 40 million times since 2012, the company says. To some extent, it made sense to keep them as separate properties – after all, what a 2-year old wants to watch will be very different from a young teenager.

But times are changing. While it made sense for each property to have its own space on linear TV, it’s more cumbersome to have multiple apps installed on our devices for access to content from a single provider.

To address this problem, Disney has added personalization features within the new DisneyNow app so kids (or parents) can customize the app to their programming interests. In addition, there’s a “Disney Junior Only” mode that parents can enable if they want to keep the app focused on preschool-appropriate programming.

What’s also interesting about the new app is that it gives you an idea of how Disney’s forthcoming streaming service may work.


In DisneyNow, for example, each user can set up a profile for themselves, and select from over 180 Disney Emoji avatar character poses to associate with their account. Kids can then customize their setup by choosing their favorite characters and shows, and then receive recommendations about what to watch next.

The app will also remember where users left off, so they can resume watching the next time they log in.

And like Disney’s upcoming streaming service has planned, DisneyNow app offers a combination of content – not just shows and movies. There are also games, music, and special performances available, too.


The app will include the ability to watch live, linear TV channels, as well as on-demand, in-season TV shows from its networks, like: “Andi Mack,” “Raven’s Home,” “Bizaardvark,” “Stuck in the Middle,” “Tangled: The Series”; Disney Junior’s “Vampirina,” “Elena of Avalor,” “Mickey and the Roadster Racers,” “The Lion Guard,” “Puppy Dog Pals” and “PJ Masks”; and Disney XD’s “DuckTales,” “Star Wars Rebels,” “Walk the Prank,” “MECH-X4” and “Milo Murphy’s Law.”

A selection of Disney Channel TV movies, curated from over 100 titles, will also be available, along with over 60 games featuring Disney characters, like the “DuckTales” adventure game “Duckburg Quest,” Princess Elena of Avalor in “Flight of the Jaquins” and the Villain Kids in the “Descendants 2 Wicked Style” activity.

Disney says it will release new games to the platform on a monthly basis.


Radio Disney performances and in-studio appearances will be added to this app, as well, including those from Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande and Camila Cabello, and others. The app is ad-supported via sponsorships, traditional or interactive TV commercials and sweepstakes, as there’s no subscription fee to use it.

However, DisneyNow is not an over-the-top streaming service, like the one Disney has planned for its 2019 release, nor will it include any theatrical movies, like those from big brands such as Pixar, Marvel, or Star Wars. Those are being saved for Disney’s big Netflix competitor. (It does have sections for Marvel and Star Wars though, for their TV cartoon series.)








While some content in DisneyNow available for free, to watch the full lineup, users will need to authenticate using their pay TV credentials from a supported cable, satellite or digital programming distributor.

The good news for cord cutters is that DisneyNow does work with your YouTube TV, PlayStation Vue, DirecTV Now, or Hulu credentials.

Of course, you could just watch Disney via those streaming apps’, but it’s better to install the DisneyNow app for the kids, so they don’t have to stumble through adult programming to find their favorite shows.

DisneyNow is a free download on iOS, Apple TV, Android, Fire tablets, and Roku. A version for Fire TV, Android TV and the web will arrive next year.

DisneyVersary 2017 - REVIEW: The Chocolate Studio in Future World, Epcot International Food and Wine Festival 2017


Welcome to a marketplace review for the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival 2017, taking place in the park from August 31st through November 13th, 2017. This review will cover “The Chocolate Studio”, which is located in Future World West in the pathway to World Showcase near the Imagination pavilion.

The Chocolate Studio



Food:
  • Liquid Nitro Chocolate-Almond Truffle with Warm Whiskey Caramel –  $4.75
  • Sweet Dark Chocolate Raspberry Torte with Whipped Cream and Raspberry Dust –  $4.25
Beverages:
  • Justin Cabernet Sauvignon, Paso Robles –  $7.00
  • Banfi Rosa Regale, Piedmont –  $9.00
  • Lenotti Recioto della Valpolicella, Veneto –  $10.00
  • RL Buller Fine Muscat, Rutherglen –  $6.00

Liquid Nitro Chocolate-Almond Truffle with Warm Whiskey Caramel –  $4.75



The Liquid Nitro Truffle is still a delight and still on our absolute must list for the event for all the reasons we have been saying for years now.

Sweet Dark Chocolate Raspberry Torte with Whipped Cream and Raspberry Dust –  $4.25



For those who prefer a dark chocolate flavor, the raspberry torte is absolutely sublime. A nice alternative to the truffle… or you could just get both…

Justin Cabernet Sauvignon, Paso Robles –  $7.00



This comes in around $30 a bottle outside of the festival, so $7 for a glass isn’t a terrible deal considering the majority of the festival prices. Pairs well with either chocolate dessert and it’s perfectly enjoyable.

Banfi Rosa Regale, Piedmont –  $9.00

This is that bright red translucent wine that comes up whenever chocolate is advertised somewhere. It’s not bad, but $9 a glass is hard to swallow considering how readily available and inexpensive the wine is elsewhere.

Lenotti Recioto della Valpolicella, Veneto –  $10.00

Fairly unique and difficult to find outside of the festival, we recommend this purchase which pairs well with the chocolates.

RL Buller Fine Muscat, Rutherglen –  $6.00

Another fairly interesting wine for the festival, high ratings across the board on many wine enthusiast websites, and at $6 a glass it feels validated.

#DisneyVersary 2017 — Immersive 360 VR Star Wars experience coming to Disney Springs, Downtown Disney


While Bob Iger has said he doubts the 360 VR goggle experience will ever come to Disney’s theme parks, that doesn’t exclude it from it’s shopping and entertainment complexes. Both Disney Springs in Orlando and Downtown Disney in Anaheim will welcome a new Star Wars VR experience from The VOID later this year.

Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire is called a groundbreaking hyper-reality experience. It will transport participants to a galaxy far, far away, where they’ll be able to play with friends, encounter Star Wars characters all while in the 360 world that includes environmental feedback like sounds, smell, touch, and motion. The environment will event react with you via Haptic feedback mechanisms so you feel like the virtual and real worlds are the same.

If you’ve heard of the traveling “Ghostbusters : Dimension” VR experience from The VOID, then you have an idea of what’s in store for Star Wars fans. Check out the trailer here:




Lucasfilm and ILMxLab are partnering with The VOID, an entertainment company focused on 360 VR experiences, to create this one-of-a-kind Star Wars experience at Downtown Disney and Disney springs. Expect it to open around the holidays later this year.

Happy “DisneyVersary 2016” | Disney Dog Halloween Costume Ideas Perfect for Your Pet


Do you have your Halloween costume picked out and ready to go? Great! Now what about a costume for your dog? If not, never fear, I have some costume ideas inspired by Disney characters that are sure to get your four-legged friends in on the Halloween fun!

For the best costume ideas, I took a look back at some photos from our special Disney Side Dog’s Day that we celebrated a couple of years ago at Magic Kingdom Park. Even though that was a one-time event, the costume ideas are timeless!




You can’t go wrong with one of the classics, such as this polka-dot-loving pooch dressed like Minnie Mouse, or this adventurous pup in a Peter Pan costume.




Is your dog more on the regal side or renegade side? For royal canines, go with a Disney Princess-inspired costume. And for the rebels, a Pirates of the Caribbean-inspired costume is fitting.




And if you and your pet make the perfect pair, coordinate your costumes for over-the-top cuteness. You can go as Alice in Wonderland while your dog is dressed as one of Alice’s friends such as the White Rabbit, or something more mysterious like the Evil Queen and Snow White.

For even more Disney inspiration for your pet, be sure to check out items created just for dogs–leashes, toys, apparel and more–on the Disney Parks online store at DisneyParks.com/Store or in select merchandise locations at Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts.

"DisneyVersary" 2016 — PHOTOS: Dr. Strange MARVEL Meet & Greet Construction at Hollywood Studios

It looks as though the Doctor Strange meet and greet at Walt Disney World will be held inside Walt Disney: One Man’s Dream during a preview of the film.


A large section of The Legacy Continues area is blocked off. This could be for a new exhibit, but this space is right next door to the theater where the Dr. Strange sneak peek is being shown.



Cast members at the exhibit have not yet been informed what is going on behind the walls. The One Man’s Dream exhibit is located inside of Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

“DisneyVersary 2016” — Beautiful Mashup Of Your Favorite Disney Songs Will Give You Major Chills


Guys, I’m not going to lie. I listened to all 10 minutes of the above mashup, and I was not so low-key weeping and definitely teary-eyed through nine minutes of it.
If you don’t know Alan Menken, start humming literally any tune from the last 30 years or so of animated Disney movies.
Go ahead, I’ll wait.
You’re humming away at your laptop, probably scaring away Starbucks customers? Good.
There’s a great chance the song you’re vocalizing (if you’re like me, off-key) was fully or partially composed by Alan.
While at the recent 25th Anniversary Screening of “Beauty and the Beast,” Alan walked on stage, waved to the crowd, sat down and performed a medley of some of your favorite Disney songs of all time.
Yes, he played the piano and sang simultaneously (WHAT ARE YOU, THE GENI?).
We’re talking hits like “Part of Your World,” “Colors of the Wind” and “Friend Like Me.”


But the most chills you’ll get during the mashup is when Alan sings “I Can Go The Distance,” and the show-stopper finale of “Be Our Guest.”
Trust me, it’s the next best thing to turning on the “Beauty and the Beast” soundtrack and playing with your candelabra while eating dinner.

(*Cough”) Not that I do that on a nightly basis. (I do.)
Seriously, after hearing all the songs, I’m 98.5 percent goosebumps right about now.
OK, yeah, the other 11.5 percent is also goosebumps.
Leave me alone I’m a wreck.
The only thing I could think of to make this more magical is if we got a full Disney medley. I’m talking about using a song from every single Disney animated classic.
Then again, that medley would probably last days (and the piano player would probably have to be hospitalized before he got through it all).
Oh well. This will have to suffice. Have a free 10 minutes? Press play right now.

Fanclubdis, Be Inspired: Disney Broadway’s “The Genie” in a Marvel Rap Battle with DMC



The amazing James Monroe Iglehart is a man of many talents. He steals the show every night as the tap dancing, wish granting, improvising, magical The Genie in Disney on Broadway’s Aladdin, but did you know he also has a passion for the rare lexiconic art of the rap battle.

Now don’t tune out yet because this story has a Disney twist. Iglehart is also a huge Disney nerd and shares a passion for comics as well. So no one was surprised when he showed up at the New York Comic-Con.

While chatting with the folks at the Marvel booth, he dropped this epic rap about the ultimate villain




But it doesn’t stop there. DMC ( aka Darryl Makes Comics aka Darryl McDaniels from the legendary pioneers of hip hop — Run-D.M.C.) stopped by the booth as well and, after seeing Iglehart’s Ultron rap, challenged him to a rap battle. Oh, it’s on!




I love that old school rap style, add to it the ability to improvise amazing lyrics, and this was an awesome display of their talents. It’s clear Iglehart was starstruck, but he did a standup job. Don’t you agree?

If someone at Disney isn’t working on a way to capitalize on Iglehart’s many talents, I’d be very disappointed.

Fanclubdis, Be Inspired: Daredevil Bedevils New York Comic Con



There were packed houses at New York Comic Con. And then there was the crowd that greeted the Saturday afternoon panel devoted to Marvel’s Netflix series Daredevil and upcoming series Jessica Jones. It was stuffed to the gills with fans. They seemed to be in every seat in the hall, which comfortably accommodated several thousand people, with folks standing in the back of the auditorium, on the sides, in the aisles. The New York Comic Con crowd was ready and really, really pumped.

And they had every right to be. Daredevil, which premiered in full on Netflix this past April and instantly became a fan favorite, is one of the most challenging and sophisticated small screen superhero sagas yet. It took place in the identifiable Marvel Cinematic Universe, but took place on a smaller scale; emotions were just as often bruised as bodies. Its hyper-specific setting (the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood in New York) made the drama more manageable and human. It is darker and grittier than the Marvel movies, but because the story necessitates that. Also, we got one of the all-time great hero/villain showdowns in Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock, a lawyer who moonlights as a vigilante, and Vincent D’Onofrio’s Wilson Fisk, a kingpin of crime masquerading as a concerned New York philanthropist. As soon as the first season was over, you were ready for the second. Don’t worry – it’s coming.


At the panel this afternoon were Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez, who are the co-showrunners this year, along with the cast of Daredevil: Elodie Yung (who plays Elektra this season), Jon Bernthal (who plays the Punisher this season), and returning favorites Elden Henson (Foggy), Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page), and Charlie Cox (Daredevil). Jeph Loeb, the creative head of Marvel’s TV division, who clearly has an affinity for the series (he called Henson’s Foggy “the heart of the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe”), moderated the panel. Early on, they showed footage from the new season, made up of glimpses of what’s to come: Matt in his new Daredevil costume, Elektra putting on her mask, Karen looking at the image of a skull (that looks eerily similar to the skull on the iconic Punisher costume), a priest telling Matt and Foggy that “Guilt can be a good thing,” Rosario Dawson’s Claire Temple looking very disappointing, and then the Punisher, seen from behind and then uttering a single word: “Pain.” Bring it on.

Executive producer Ramirez addressed both the reaction of the first season and what to expect for the second. “I think a lot of what we were doing was wondering in our writers room if there was a place in the world where a dark, gritty, sophisticated, grounded superhero show could exist,” he explained. “Because of the fan reaction, which was overwhelming and wonderful, we said, you want it grounded, you want it dark? Here’s Elektra, here’s Punisher.” (In the comics Elektra is a sexy ninja assassin, created during Frank Miller’s influential run on the series.

The Punisher is Frank Castle, a violent vigilante who makes Murdock’s nighttime prowling seem tame by comparison. Both characters fit comfortably in the mode of “antihero.” Ramirez has previously called the second season “Daredevil vs. Punisher.”) Petrie, who worked with Daredevil series creator Drew Goddard on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, added: “I hesitate to use the word blessing but all of us, across the board, we love two things: one of them is Matt Murdock, and the other is the world that Matt Murdock navigates.” He then summed up the new season thusly: “Now with the Punisher and Elektra we take it further and darker and more emotional. We’re fans too. So the stuff that you want to see, we want to see, and we can’t wait to show it to you.” (Petrie later teased that there would be more flashbacks this season.)

The new cast members seem particularly suited for their new roles. Yung has a black belt in karate. And Bernthal reached out to the show’s creators even before they had locked down what season two was going to be. Bernthal rubbed his face and said, in the most authentic and endearing way possible, “Look, I know how important this character to you guys. I know that. I know how important this show is to you guys. I know how important he is to law enforcement, the military, and I look at this as a huge honor, a huge responsibility, and I give you my absolute word that I am going to give everything that I have.” Later in the panel, Bernthal said that people on the street are only adding to the pressure. “15, 20 times a day I get, ‘You better not mess this up, man.’ And I say, ‘I hear you, I hear you.’”



As for the returning cast members, Woll teased that the next season would see more of Matt and Karen outside of the office. “I don’t know how far I can go, but Charlie Cox is one of my favorite people I’ve ever gotten to work with,” Woll enthused. “It’s been a privilege this season.” For his part, Cox explained his experience with Daredevil as being intimidating and incredibly rewarding. “I had some apprehension about playing someone known as the Man without Fear, because playing someone incapable of fear on a TV show isn’t that interesting. It robs you of one of my favorite characteristics in people, which is courage,” Cox said. “The thing I’ve learned the most from working with these people and playing this extraordinary character, is courage – how much courage it takes to be a vulnerable human but also a vulnerable superhero. It’s been a cool journey to be on.”


And the journey continues when Daredevil returns to Netflix in 2016.

Fanclubdis, Be Inspired: Celebrity Chef Art Smith Opening “Homecoming” Restaurant at Disney Springs in 2016

Homecoming: Florida Kitchen and Southern Shine, Chef Art Smith’s new restaurant concept, will open in Summer 2016 at Disney Springs at Walt Disney World Resort.





You might know Chef Smith from his years as Oprah’s chef, or for his appearances in “Iron Chef America,” “Top Chef” and “Top Chef Masters.” The James Beard Foundation award winner was born and reared in the town of Jasper, Fla., on the Florida-Georgia border, where his family still raises cattle, pecans and heirloom vegetables. And after 25 years of preparing award-winning meals for celebrities and heads of state and appearing on television, he is making Florida his home once again.

The Homecoming menu will feature Southern favorites like homemade pimento cheese, Church Lady deviled eggs, low country shrimp and grits, kale salad with Sweet Grass Dairy cheese and spiced pecans and a grilled Blackstrap pork chop with sawmill gravy. “Each dish has a little Florida twist and make guests feel like they’re on the back porch with me for every meal,” says Smith. Desserts will be a specialty, with cakes, pies and delectable sweets made daily and shipped from a bakery in Hamilton County, including the restaurant’s signature Mockingbird Cake.





The “rustic-chic” restaurant has a glass-walled show kitchen and the Southern Shine bar, featuring whimsical cocktails, punches and coolers that celebrate an era where characters might have created some homegrown spirits on their homesteads just beyond the springs.

If you are wondering why the restaurant is called Homecoming, well, Chef Smith attended Florida State University and did a culinary internship with the Walt Disney World College Program many years ago.

Cada vez falta menos para el estreno de la nueva película de Disney•Pixar, Un Gran Dinosaurio. Y, aunque es verdad que Alegría, Tristeza, y todas las emociones de Intensa-Mente, dejaron la vara muy alta, estamos seguros de que Un Gran Dinosaurio cumplirá ampliamente las expectativas.

Y es que desde que Disney•Pixar reveló sus primeras imágenes, nos deslumbró con ese arte que solo el mejor estudio de animación del mundo es capaz de hacer. Y ahora, tras los pósters revelados y su primer tráiler, ¡Disney•Pixar lanzó el segundo tráiler de Un Gran Dinosaurio! Ahora, además de asombrarnos con ese mundo, en donde el asteroide que acabó con la vida de los dinosaurios no impacta contra la tierra, escuchamos por primera vez las voces de Arlo, su padre, muchos otros dinosaurios y su compañero de viaje, ¡el cachorro humano Spot!

El tráiler está llenó de los colores y las animaciones a las que Disney•Pixar nos tiene acostumbrados, y nos insinúa una hermosa historia que no podemos esperar más. Pero lo mejor será que lo veas tú mismo. ¡Que lo disfrutes!
