If you weren’t already super cerealously excited for the fast approaching fall and Halloween season, how’s this for a slice of fried gold.
Simon Pegg took to the Twitter to reveal that he and Nick Frost would be once again be playing the roles of Shaun and Ed from the 2004 hit Shaun of the Dead. The duo will reprise their roles for the Phineas and Ferb Halloween special.
It was originally thought that Disney would be releasing Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Ant-Man in 2014. That’s three Marvel films in one year alone.
Well it may be one too many for one year or director Edgar Wright needs more time to work on the script after he finishes The World’s End, because it has been announced that Ant-Man will be hitting theaters November 6, 2015. That’s a couple of months after The Avengers 2 hits theaters.
Disney has also announced some additional features and more release dates for their upcoming titles. Check them out below.
We are told in Peter Pan that through having faith, trust, and pixie dust, we can fly. To soar. To flee from society, even if only briefly. We believe in this magic for the hope that our worries will disappear. Disney seems to possess that touch on individuals, especially “geeks” like me, who find value in a break from reality for the hope of dream-like atmospheres.
Since the devastating massacre in Aurora, Colorado, struck the United States with another tragedy, in an environment where many Americans seek diversions – at the movies – I began thinking of the importance of escapism in our society. Though we cannot avoid actuality, and boy would it be unhealthy if we denied truth, I feel we must continue to place merit in visiting worlds of whimsy. Whether they be fictional in the form of Disney films, or where the lines become blurred even further in the Disney theme parks, Americans shall always depart from reality in favor of some fantasy.
