D23 Expo 2013 may have concluded, but the fresh content releasing from the ultimate Disney event keeps on coming! Peek into Disney Consumer Products’ pavilion with me as I explore the cool exhibits featuring some of Disney’s most awesome acquisitions – Star Wars, Muppets, and Marvel!
Disney is setting itself up to be a force to be reckoned with for the next few years. That is because they have shifted a couple of dates for some of the biggest tentpoles. In 2014, we’ll be seeing a new Muppets, two Marvel flicks, a live-action reimagining of a classic fairy tale, and Brad Bird‘s 1952.
If that wasn’t enough to whet your appetite, the 2015 slate should make you really happy. In 2015, we’ll be seeing Pirates 5, The Avengers 2, Ant-Man, not one but two Pixar films, and a little something called Star Wars Episode VII. Pretty neat.
Hit the jump to get the full schedule and to find out which films have been cancelled.
You can’t blame the good people at Fox News for feeling the need to stir up some outrage; their relentless campaign of disinformation against President Obama has made them pariahs among more respectable news outlets and the current crop of Republican presidential candidates isn’t exactly inspiring confidence that the GOP will take back the White House this Fall (in a recent Fox News poll 44% of their viewers now believe that Obama would win a second term if either Mitt Romney or Newt Gingrich were the 2012 Republican candidate for President).
One of the network’s favorite targets has always been “liberal” Hollywood and how they want to impose their debauched lifestyles and depraved beliefs on the fragile young mindsets of young Americans and lay waste to traditional family values in an apocalyptic fire of legalized abortion and medicinal marijuana. Most of the time certain outspoken celebrities give the fuming news drones at Fox plenty of fuel for their bilious fury, but then there are other times when it’s obvious that they’re just grasping at straws.
The Muppets love to dress up for Halloween, just like we do!
Check them out in their Halloween garb from this e-card they sent out day for the holiday. The image shows Kermit as Frankenstein’s monster, Miss Piggy as the Bride of Frankenstein, and Rizzo the Rat as Igor.
A couple of new trailers have been released for Disney’s The Muppets, including another parody trailer as well as the first full official trailer for the movie.
As far as parodies go a few have been released, the first of which was a bit strange but still amusing. This new one is a parody of the just-released DC Comics superhero movie, Green Lantern, with a voice over reciting the Lantern’s oath before revealing it’s actually for The Muppets. A poster to go with the spoof trailer has also been released, with Kermit the Frog as a Lantern.
Then comes the first official trailer for the movie, which sets up the actual storyline and dedicates the whole trailer to Muppet goodness. You can see both trailers and the Kermit Green Lantern poster by continuing on below now.
