Disney Editions has an exciting release schedule over the next six months. Honoring some of the coolest characters, themes, and elements of all things Disney, these six titles should be on your “Disney wish list” for a variety of reasons. Here is my preview of upcoming Disney Editions books!
In honor of Disneyland‘s 60th Anniversary, Disney In Depth will dedicate each edition in July to Walt’s original park. Accordingly, it only seems fitting to notate some of the elements that make Walt Disney’s original playground so special.
This marks the first half of a two-part edition that recognizes 60 of my favorite things to do while spending time at the happiest place on Earth: Disneyland.
It was four years ago this month at SDCC 2010 that Guillermo del Toro announced his plans for a reboot of The Haunted Mansion for Disney based on their popular theme park attraction of the same name. Since then, the filmmaker has been involved with so many projects – Pacific Rim and its planned sequel, Crimson Peak, an adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft’s At The Mountains Of Madness, the upcoming FX TV series The Strain based on his novel, and much more — that it seemed like Del Toro’s plans to bring a frightened version of the tale to the big screen had fall to the wayside.
Recently, Del Toro did an AMA (Ask Me Anything) on Reddit where he gave a brief update on The Haunted Mansion where he mentioned that they’re having trouble finalizing the screenplay, but they are developing art pieces and maquettes of the Hat Box Ghost and more.
The $11 t-shirt deal of the day over at TeeFury today is a mash-up of Star Wars and Disney’s Haunted Manson called “Leia’s Mortal State” by khallion.
The sale began at Teefury today, Monday, June 9, 2014, at midnight EST, and will continue for 24 hours from then, and once it’s over, it will not be sold on the site for $11 anymore, though it will continue into the next day for $14 (look for the After Hours bar at the top).
Are there real ghosts inside The Haunted Mansion, the famous ride at Disneyland? A new video claims that the answer to this question is “yes,” and you can check it out below.
The story, as told to the Disney blog Inside the Magic, is that an “anonymous cast member” sent along a single blurry image as a tease of a supposed little boy ghost haunting The Haunted Mansion ride (see it here), and a promise of a full video to come. That video did eventually come. But the question remains, is it real?
Be sure to click on over to the other side to watch the video and decide for yourselves.
