Disney In Depth: Recognizing The Next Disney Legends
Brett Nachman   |  

Disney In Depth Banner

Two years ago, in light of the D23 Expo 2015, I named six individuals paramount to the success of The Walt Disney Company who should be named Disney Legends, the highest honor that can be bestowed. I think it is inevitable that Joe Rodhe, for instance, renowned Imagineer with those awesome earrings, who I contended should become a Disney Legend, will one day attain that honor. This prompted me to reflect on individuals within The Walt Disney Company, whether they have more recently joined the corporation or have been directly or indirectly part of its framework, who have a high chance of being recognized as Disney Legends at some point.

I had planned on publishing a column about the next set of individuals who would likely be recognized as Disney Legends, but The Walt Disney Company beat me to the punch by recently issuing a press release of its nine forthcoming Disney Legends. You’ll have to take my word that I predicted Stan Lee, Garry Marshall, Carrie Fisher, and Mark Hamill would be named as Disney Legends this year. That said, I am excited to share my thoughts on these four, as well as five others, who will obtain this major honor at the D23 Expo.

Once upon a time, not too long ago, Will Smith was in talks for a role in one of Disney’s live-action remakes of their animated classics, the new take on Dumbo being directed by Tim Burton.

That ultimately didn’t work out. But now comes word that he’s up for another Disney role, and it’s a much more well-known character than who he was going to play in Dumbo. It’s being reported that Smith has entered into early talks to take on the role of Genie in Disney’s live-action remake of Aladdin.

Star Wars The Last Jedi image 09

So now that we’ve watched the first trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi a few hundred times (or more) and got a tease of the panel from Star Wars Celebration today, it’s time for some good ol’ fashioned photos.

As we all know, The Last Jedi is the second installment of a brand new trilogy, but director Rian Johnson isn’t being as secretive about the plot as his predecessor J.J. Abrams when he directed Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Of course, Johnson is being as vague as possible so not to spoil the entire thing, but he did reveal that The First Order will be making “Big Moves” that could strengthen their place within the Galactic Senate. Check out what he had to say below, plus a few new photos from the trailer that dropped this morning.

Dwayne Johnson will star in Jungle Cruise

Sure Disneyland has a wealth of rides inspired by characters and films, but they also have some original ones as well. With the success of the Pirates of the Caribbean films, it was only a matter of time before another ride got the big-screen adaptation treatment. Jungle Cruise is another one of those rides. The film was originally a Tim Allen and Tom Hanks-starring vehicle, but now has turned into something with an action slant now that Dwayne Johnson is the leading star. But with his workload, it was hard to imagine Jungle Cruise would ever happen. Now there is confirmation that the film will start production in 2018. More on the story below.

The tale as old as time is timeless, and so is its music. With the recent release of Disney’s smash success Beauty and the Beast, let’s unpack the music box that is the film’s soundtrack. With all of the original tunes from the 1991 film, as well as some new additions, this new version blends classic and contemporary almost seamlessly, with a few exceptions.

Here is my review of the soundtrack for the 2017 version of Beauty and the Beast.

Disney Wants To Reimagine Classic ‘Star Wars’ Parody ‘Hardware Wars’
Waerloga69   |  

Star Wars parody Hardware Wars

In 1977, the world was amazed and delighted by the now iconic film Star Wars. The following year, a short parody film by the name of Hardware Wars found its way into the hearts of millions. With characters by the name of Fluke Starbucker, Augie “Ben” Doggie, Princess Anne-Droid, Ham Salad, and Chewchilla the Wookiee Monster, the short film’s cast was an obvious tongue-in-cheek referencing to the original Star Wars roles. Household equipment made up the vast majority of props in the parody, hence the name. Hilarious and goofy, the video lampoon was and is a cult classic to this day. As a matter of fact, I just watched it again and laughed all the way through.
