Dundee: The Son of a Legend Returns Home

We pretty much knew that the trailers for the Dundee: The Son of a Legend Returns Home “movie” (here here, and here) were fake and actually ads for Australian tourism. And yet, we wanted to believe that somehow it would become a real film. And can you blame us? I mean, Danny McBride playing the estranged American son of the Australian legend, Crocodile Dundee. And in the trailers that have been released so far, we’ve seen Chris Hemsworth, Hugh Jackman, Margot Robbie, Russell Crowe, Isla Fisher, Ruby Rose, Luke Hemsworth,, and more trick us in to believing that this was a real movie… or at least get us to want to visit Australia.

But now, comes the terribly sad news: There is no Dundee movie. But if you are thinking about going to Australia any time soon, well, then this ad might be just the thing to get you to buy a plane ticket. Check out the latest ad here below, which aired during last night’s Super Bowl.

Maps of the Disney Parks
Hardcover
Text By Kevin and Susan Neary
Maps Curated by Vanessa Hunt
Publisher: Disney Editions
Release date: October 18, 2016

How would we live without maps? They give us direction and purpose. Some lead us down new paths. Others familiarize us with common settings. The park maps we snatch upon entering any of the Disney theme parks accomplish just this. Even more, the meta atmosphere of Disney often means there are maps within maps. Thankfully a new book from Disney Editions titled Maps of the Disney Parks compiles both the dated and novel park maps, as well as maps featured within the park settings.

Duo Kevin and Susan Neary, along with Disney Imagineer Vanessa Hunt, have produced a wonderful publication of lush visuals galore that should nicely complement your edition of Hunt’s Poster Art of the Disney Parks.

Two months after the Disney Wonder returned from its dry dock, the ship is looking better than ever in its more than 17-year history. With tons of new experiences and re-themed spaces, it’s no wonder why many cruise-goers may opt to set sail on this vessel.

I recently returned from a seven-day voyage aboard the Disney Wonder, and I am here to share details on the novel experiences aboard Disney Cruise Line’s second ship.

‘Jurassic World’ Museum Exhibition Debuts In U.S.

Jurassic World: The Exhibition

When I was a kid, I remember going to the Museum of Science in Boston for a new dinosaur exhibition right around the time Jurassic Park was released. It was amazing. Even got myself a Jurassic Jawbreaker, which is really just one of those giant Jawbreakers. Lasted me months.

Last year the fourth movie in the Jurassic Park franchise, Jurassic World, stormed into theaters and did huge numbers. A museum exhibition was created around the movie, and has already had a run in Australia. Now the exhibition has made its way here to the States, debuting at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia.

You can read the full press release with all the details below. If you’re like me and can’t make it to Philly, you can also find a great peek at what some of the exhibits look like from its run in Australia. Let’s just say, they can do way cooler stuff with animatronics now than they could back in the ’90s.

Disney In Depth: Embracing More Marvel and Muppets In The Parks

Disney In Depth Banner

Play the music and light the lights. The emergence of more Marvel and Muppets in the Disney theme parks is enough to make the future look very bright! Disney must balance so many properties these days that there is only enough slots during the yearly theatrical schedule to place movies. A few are reserved for “Disney proper,” whereas others must account for Marvel, Lucasfilm, and Pixar.

Likewise, many of the Disney theme parks’ newest offerings are not “originals,” but rather come from preexisting brands. Two Disney brands gaining more exposure in the parks come from arenas that have been relatively absent in Disney parks: Marvel and the Muppets.
