Shopping Find: C-3PO Star Wars Mickey Mouse Ears

Over the last few years, we’ve seen Disney make a wide variety of different styles for its Mickey Mouse Ears. The Mickey Ear hat is one of the classic collectibles and it’s also among the most affordable. In 2013 Disney went Couture with the Mickey Ear Collection. They’ve even added a line of Ear Hat holiday ornaments that honors the traditional shape.

My latest fun shopping find is a set of golden C-3PO Star Wars Mickey Mouse Ears.

I found these in the kid’s wear area of the World of Disney in Downtown Disney. You can wear these and your partner can wear the R2D2 ears that came out last year, and you’re set.

Side note: Marvel fans will find Spider-man and Iron Man Marvel Mickey Mouse Ears in D-Street in Downtown Disney.

Do you have a favorite set of Mickey Ears in your collection? How do you display them?

James Gunn Promises Deleted Music Scene Will Appear on Guardians of the Galaxy Blu-Ray

gotg-gunnwilding

The soundtrack to Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy has been just as big a hit as the film itself. If you’re among the many who have found yourself wishing for more scenes set to music from the movie, it seems there is a deleted scene that will make the Blu-ray of the movie.

On one of his “#GOTG Pic of the Day posts,” director James Gunn explains there is a musical scene with the big, blue-skinned prison guard who takes Peter Quill’s Walkman for himself. It’s set to “Magic” by Pilot, and features the guard dancing. According to Gunn, it’s “awesome and hilarious.”

Here is the post Gunn made about it, which includes a photo of him with actor Spencer Wilding in his full guard make-up:

In the text accompanying this photo, Gunn says:

“Here’s me and the actor Spencer Wilding who played the Mean Guard who jabs Quill in the prison with the electrical staff and gets his comeuppance to Escape (the Piña Colada Song). He also has a little container of Play-Doh. Why Play-Doh? Because I would keep a pile of little Play-Doh containers onset and if someone did an especially amazing job that day – whether it was an actor, a grip, a stunt man, or a PA – they’d get a canister of Play-Doh. I probably only gave about 40 containers out over the entire shoot – on an 85 day schedule with a crew of a couple hundred, that isn’t much. I chose Play-Doh because I love the smell of it – opening a new container and smelling it puts me in a creative, child-like place. And who doesn’t love playing with Play-Doh (I swear Play-Doh isn’t paying for this post)? Anyway, Spencer got the Play-Doh for a scene where he danced through the prison listening to Quill’s Walkman (specifically, Magic by Pilot). We cut the scene for many reasons, but it was awesome and hilarious and Spence more than deserved his rarely-given Play-Doh (and, yes, before you ask me a thousand times below, it WILL be on the Blu-Ray outtakes, and no I will not tell you the release date – you can go see the movie again! It’s still out!) Have a great day (or night depending in where you are). ”

Only 40 given out and Wilding has one? That must have been one awesome dance scene indeed.

It’ll be a while before we get to see that deleted scene, since Guardians of the Galaxy is still holding strong at the top of the box office. But at least it gives us something to look forward to, right?

Into The Woods – First Poster Released

The Christmas Disney film for 2014 is “Into the Woods,” a Stephen Sondheim musical that is loved by millions. The first one sheet poster for the film has just been released and it features the character of “The Witch” as portrayed by Meryl Streep.

“Into the Woods” is a modern twist on several of the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, intertwining the plots of a few choice stories and exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests. This humorous and heartfelt musical follows the classic tales of Cinderella (Anna Kendrick), Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), Jack and the Beanstalk (Daniel Huttlestone), and Rapunzel (MacKenzie Mauzy)—all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife (James Corden & Emily Blunt), their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch (Meryl Streep) who has put a curse on them.

Rob Marshall, the acclaimed filmmaker behind the Academy Award®-winning musical “Chicago” and Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” directs the film, which is based on the Tony®-winning original musical by James Lapine, who also penned the screenplay, and legendary composer Stephen Sondheim, who provides the music and lyrics. Produced by Marshall, John DeLuca, “Wicked” producer Marc Platt and Callum McDougall, “Into the Woods” will be released in theaters Dec. 25, 2014.

Marvel’s Daredevil on Netflix – new details

daredevil-iger-netflix

There’s been a lot of talk surrounding Marvel’s Cinematic Universe lately. Disney and Marvel just released the official plot for “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Guardians of the Galaxy” has become the highest grossing film of the year and, despite being knocked down to third last week in the box office, is still breaking records and we are less than a week away from the Season 2 premiere of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. But there is one side of the MCU that isn’t getting talked about as much, though I think that’s about to change.

Months ago, Marvel made a huge deal with Netflix for multiple original series which will culminate with a new team of heroes forming, The Defenders. “Daredevil” will begin streaming next year, but, if you find yourself at New York’s Comic Con this year, you’ll be in for a treat.

Both Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Daredevil will have a presence this year. Attendees will get to watch the latest AoS episode before it airs on ABC, but I think the real treat is that this will be the first time that we get to see the whole cast of Daredevil assembled together. Showrunner, Steve DeKnight will also be there with Charlie Cox (who plays Daredevil) and the rest of the cast to finally answer fans questions about the new show.

Until then, Marvel is slowly revealing more casting from the show. Scott Glenn (The Bourne Ultimatum, The Silence of the Lambs) has been cast as Stick, a martial arts master and mentor of Matt Murdock.

“Stick is one of the most important figures in Matt Murdock’s life and Scott Glenn embodies all the qualities of someone so integral to this hero’s journey,” said Jeph Loeb, who heads up Marvel Television and, seeing online reaction to the casting announcement, fans seem to agree with him.

Are you looking forward to the Daredevil show?
