The Oxford Dictionary defines a flash mob as “a large public gathering at which people perform an unusual or seemingly random act and then disperse.” While these acts seemed to be all the rage a few years ago, they still remain popular for their originality and entertainment value. Disney enters the picture when you consider how many individuals set their YouTube flash mob videos to Disney music – or, in some cases, within the Disney parks themselves.
Here are eight awesome flash mob videos that will make you want to get on your feet and join in!
Back in 2010 we found out about a new live-action movie adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen‘s fairy tale The Little Mermaid being developed by Atonement and Hanna director Joe Wright for Universal Pictures and Working Title Films.
Much time has passed and and Wright is no longer attached, but now a new director has stepped in. It’s being reported that Sofia Coppola, writer and director of Lost in Translation (which she won a Best Original Screenplay Oscar for), will now direct the movie.
The $11 t-shirt deal of the day over at TeeFury today is called “Part of Every World” by khallion and is inspired by Doctor Who and The Little Mermaid.
The sale began at Teefury today, Wednesday, December 11, 2013, 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).
One of the perks of being a Disney Princess is that at some point, there’s likely to be a gorgeous gown to wear that everyone will admire. Not much attention is paid to what their Princes are wearing, though.
Now, artist Haruki Godo has taken the Disney Princesses and put them in the clothes of their respective Princes. For instance, in Godo’s reimagining, Ariel of The Little Mermaid is wearing Prince Eric’s military uniform; Jasmine from Aladdin is in Aladdin’s princely duds, and then there’s my favorite, Belle from Beauty and the Beast sporting The Beast’s famous blue and gold attire.
Legendary Disney musical talents Alan Menken and Richard Sherman performed dozens of songs last night from their library during “The Disney Songbook” concert at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, CA. Sherman played a handful of hits.
I’ll be sharing videos of some of those tunes in a future post but for now, here are some of Alan Menken’s musical medleys of songs from Oscar-winning features The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and Aladdin.
