Ant-Man and the Wasp Poster

Marvel
The poster for Ant-Man and the Wasp, which was released at Comic-Con, is rather gorgeous. The movie won't arrive in theaters for nearly a year, but it sound pretty good so far.

Here's the official description from Marvel:

From the Marvel Cinematic Universe comes a new chapter featuring heroes with the astonishing ability to shrink: Ant-Man and the Wasp. In the aftermath of Captain America: Civil War, Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) grapples with the consequences of his choices as both a Super Hero and a father. As he struggles to rebalance his home life with his responsibilities as Ant-Man, he's confronted by Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) and Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) with an urgent new mission. Scott must once again put on the suit and learn to fight alongside The Wasp as the team works together to uncover secrets from their past.

Ant-Man and the Wasp arrives in theaters on July 6, 2018.

Quote of the Week

Disney

Dip the apple in the brew.
Let the Sleeping Death seep through.
Look! On the skin!
The symbol of what lies within.
Now turn red, to tempt Snow White, 
to make her hunger for a bite.
Have a bite?
Its not for you, it's for Snow White. 
When she breaks the tender peel, 
to taste the apple in my hand,
her breath will still, 
her blood congeal.
Then I'll be fairest in the land!

- The Evil Queen, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Good Luck To You on Friday the 13th


Whether you're superstitious or not, I wish you the best of luck this Friday the 13th.

Superstitious by Shel Silverstein

If you are superstitious you'll never step on cracks.
When you see a ladder you will never walk beneath it.
And if you ever spill some salt you'll thrown some 'cross your back,
And carry 'round a rabbit's foot just in case you need it.
You'll pick up any pin you find lying on the ground,
And never, never, ever throw your hat upon the bed,
Or open an umbrella when you are in the house.
You'll bite your tongue each time you say
A thing you shouldn't have said.
You'll hold your breath and cross your fingers 
Walkin' by a graveyard,
And number thirteen's never gonna do you any good.
Black cats will all look vicious, if you're superstitious,
But I'm not superstitious (knock on wood).

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Trailer and Poster

Lucasfilm
Disney and Lucasfilm released a new trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi last night during Monday Night Football's halftime show. The trailer gives us another glimpse into a galaxy far, far away.

It looks like Rey is struggling to find her place in the Force, and Luke is afraid of her power and his past. Kylo Ren is working to overcome the good in him to please his master. Finn and Poe Dameron are fighting to stop the First Order. And it looks like this film may be a dark one. I can't wait! On a much lighter note, check out the Porg's adorable alarm-like call. So cute!


Star Wars: The Last Jedi arrives in theaters on December 15. Tickets are available now.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales on Blu-ray

Disney
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is available on Blu-ray and DVD today. I saw the film in the theater, and I absolutely loved it. It was crazy and funny, and at times incredibly sad, but overall it was a fantastic addition to the series. Caution: There Be Spoilers Ahead. Ye Be Warned.

Disney
Dead Men Tell No Tales starts where At World's End left off, with the love story between Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann. Their young son, Henry, is determined to break his father's curse, with help, of course, from Captain Jack Sparrow, whether anyone likes it or not.

While seeking Jack, a grown-up Henry meets Capitan Salazar, who wants revenge on Jack, and Carina Smyth, an astronomer accused of witchcraft, who is about to be executed alongside Jack. On the way to the execution scene, keep an eye out for Uncle Jack, a cameo by Paul McCartney, who is hilarious.

Disney
Eventually, everyone's journeys collide as they all seek Poseidon's Trident. It's a race to see who will find it first: Henry and Carina with Jack and his ragtag crew, Barbossa and his crew of miscreants, Capitan Salazar and his ghosts, or the British Royal Navy.

I won't reveal any more, but if you liked the first three films, you should definitely see Dead Men Tell No Tales. It is supposed to be the final film in the series and it provides a good stopping point for all the different characters' stories. And while I did cry through much of the end, I can't wait to see it again. Oh, and make sure to watch for the post credit scene. It made me wonder if there are more tales to tell afterall.

Disney
The Blu-ray has a treasure chest full of Special Features:

  • Dead Men Tell More Tales: The Making of a New Adventure - take a behind the scenes look at the making of the film with  a collection of stories that can be viewed individually or together
  • A Return to the Sea - hear how Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg developed this new chapter and brought it to the screen
  • Telling Tales: A Sit-down with Brenton & Kaya - meet Brenton Thwaites and Lays Scodelario, the newest members of the Pirates franchise
  • The Matador & The Bull: Secrets of Salazar & The Silent Mary - Javier Bardem speaks about his character and his foreboding ship 
  • First Mate Confidential - go on-set with Kevin McNally, the long suffering Mr. Gibbs, Captain Jack's first mate
  • Deconstructing the Ghost Sharks - a glimpse into the depths to see how these monsters were created and brought to life 
  • Wings Over the Caribbean - Captain Jack and Sir Paul McCartney 
  • An Enduring Legacy - One last look at the impact of Pirates of the Caribbean; the ride, the movies, and beyond
  • Bloopers of the Caribbean 
  • Jerry Bruckheimer Photo Diary
  • Deleted Scenes

The Music of Coco

Disney/Pixar
The music of Coco is bright, and vibrant, and celebrates its Mexican heritage beautifully. Snippets of three of the songs that were written for the film can be heard below.



"The World Es Mi Familia" is sung by Miguel, and shows his love of music, although it is forbidden in his family.


"Un Poco Loco" is a crazy little song that Miguel and Hector sing together.


"Remember Me" is a song sung by Ernesto de la Cruz, Miguel's ancestor and hero. Coco arrives in theaters on November 22.

Happy 35th Anniversary EPCOT!

Disney
Today marks the 35th anniversary of Disney's Experimental Prototype Community Of Tomorrow, or EPCOT. The park will be celebrating this milestone with a commemorative map, a musical celebration with Voices of Liberty and Mariachi Cobre, special merchandise, and fireworks.

Disney
A unique collection of "I was there" merchandise will only be available for one day at a pop-up shop just past the Art of Disney. 

Disney
Seven items will be available, including shirts for kids and adults, a hat, an ornament, and a limited edition pin. Annual Passholders can also buy a t-shirt designed just for them. 

Disney
Additional 35th anniversary merchandise will be available all year. There are several different collections, from a retro-inspired look that captures the spirit of EPCOT's beginnings "We've only just begun to dream," 

Disney
to a set featuring the unity design from Future World. Which one do you like best? I think I'd go for the Future World set.

Star Wars: Forces of Destiny Specials Coming in October

Disney
A new trailer has been released for two Star Wars: Forces of Destiny specials. The half hour shows will air on October 1 and 29 on the Disney Channel. Afterward, they will also be available on Disney's YouTube. The specials will be made up of the previously released shorts featuring Rey, Jyn Erso, Sabine, Leia, Ahsoka Tano, and Padme Amidala, as well as 8 new ones. The new shorts will include additional characters, such as Han Solo, Hera Syndulla, Finn, Maz Kanata, and more.


Disney originally launched Forces of Destiny to show the powerful female characters of the Star Wars universe. However, as Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy said, they are, "for anyone who has been inspired by Leia's heroism, Rey's courage, or Ahsoka's tenacity." And the shorts all fit in with the existing Star Wars storylines. Story Group member Carrie Beck said, "One of the opportunities here was to tell the stories in between the larger moments and imagine some of the ways our characters have crossed. It's all part of the larger swath of storytelling."

Behind the Screams at Mickey's Boo-To-You Parade

Disney
One of my favorite parts of the Boo-To-you Parade at Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party is the Dead Waltzers. Modeled after the ballroom dancers in the Haunted Mansion, these spooks create quite a stir as they glide past. According to Choreographer Larry Kornfehl, becoming a Dead Waltzer is a highly coveted position that requires a lot of talent and a fair amount of imagination, too. Each couple must come up with a story for their characters, including how they met their tragic end.


After months of practice, the end result is amazing. Here's a video I took of the dancers earlier this month.

Once Upon A Time Portraits


Once Upon a Time returns to ABC soon, but with a major twist. At the end of last season, a grown-up Henry met his daughter, who was looking for his help to save their family. It appears that the former residents of Storybrooke have been placed under a whole new curse in a whole new town. Welcome to Hyperion Heights.

ABC
Young Henry is all grown up, but he seems to have forgotten all about his magical past.

ABC
Hook, minus Emma, is a police officer named Rogers in Hyperion Heights.

ABC
Lucy, following in her father's footsteps, has come to Hyperion Heights to prove to Henry that magic is real. And that he is, in fact, her father.

ABC
The Evil Queen has a new look and a new job: barkeeper at Roni's. And you guessed it, she's Roni.

ABC
Rumplestiltskin's new identity is a mystery, but he seems to have given up suits.

ABC
Cinderella, known as Jacinda in this world, is Lucy's mom, so we can expect to see Cinderella and Henry's romance this season.

ABC
Drizella, Cinderella's wicked step sister, goes by Ivy in Hyperion Heights.

ABC
The Princess and the Frog's Tiana, who goes by Sabine, will get her origin story this season.

ABC
Alice, or should I say Tilly, has left Wonderland behind for Hyperion Heights.

ABC
And finally, what would Once Upon a Time be without a villain. Lady Tremaine, Cinderella's evil stepmother, goes by Victoria Belfry now.

With all of the changes, I can't wait to see how it all turns out. Which character are you most looking forward to? Catch Once Upon a Time's season 7 premiere on Friday, October 6 on ABC.
