A little rain could not dampen the spirits of Disney’s Cinderella world premiere last night. Just like at the Oscars the El Capitan erected a big tent to cover the stat studded red carpet and the show went on as planned.

Many of the guests came dressed for a ball of Cinderella proportions too. Lily James, who plays the title character, looked stunning in her dress. Holliday Grainger and Sophie McShera held up their end of the deal as the step-sisters as well. Plus Cate Blanchett looks fantastic as always.

Disney’s Frozen performed by Emoji

emoji-frozenWhat is hipper and more happening than a selfie? How about an Emoji? Disney has taken Emoji’s to the next level using then to give an all new take on the 2013 animated feature Frozen.

What is an emoji? It’s the language of mobile chat where sometimes a small icon can say more than you otherwise could with words. They’re like the modern day cousin of the sideways smiley face :).

This video retelling of Frozen features all the popular mechanics of mobile chatting including text threads, lock screens, photo galleries, and more.

It’s cute, but it misses a lot of the charm that the full length feature has. I mean, where were Olaf, and Kristoff and Sven? They played almost no part in this version and yet helped make the original as good as it was.

Disney plans more of these Emoji tales with Tangled, The Lion King, and Winnie The Pooh in the future.

What did you think of their first attempt?

“Aftershocks” Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Returns to ABC

aos-s2e11

It’s almost time for the return of our favorite agents, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. that is. Director Coulson and the team returns for the second half of season 2 tomorrow night at 9pm ET on ABC.

Marvel and ABC have released the first preview clip from the show. Director Coulson and Agent May prepare to transfer their Hydra prisoner to the U.S. Government…but things never turn out they way you expect!

I’m definitely looking forward to the return of our heroes and curious to learn more about what happens to Skye and Raina, who appear to be the first Inhumans to appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Will you be watching tomorrow night?
