This week’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was originally supposed to include the world premiere of the trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron, but alas that leaked on the internet and Marvel published it online shortly there after.
There’s still a good reason to watch. First, it’s a great show and this season certainly has had some great moments right from the start. But if that’s not enough, Marvel has decided to include a scene from the movie in place of the trailer.
Tune in to Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. when it airs at 9/8c Tuesday on ABC.
I’m like most Disney theme park fans, I hear rumors all the time, some of them are more legit than others, but it can be hard to tell which actually have some nuggets of truth. To help with this, I have a rule – I don’t believe anything until Disney actually breaks ground on the project. But that doesn’t mean I can’t speculate about the latest rumors. So, keeping my rule in mind, here’s my latest understanding of changes coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
The Sorcerer’s Hat is getting moved. If it’s possible to save the hat (which isn’t a given considering how much steel and concrete when into placing it at DHS) there are a couple of options as to where it will end up. It could go where it should have been placed originally – the Christmas Tree planter in the lakeside plaza out on front of the park. There it will provide a great moment as guests arrive from the bus, parking lot, or friendship boat dock. It can continue to house a store just like the little shop outside of Disney’s Animal Kingdom does. Plus, you’ll be able to view the hat from 360 degrees, which you really can’t in the park. Another likely location would be Disney Springs where it would fit in nicely in the modern west side area.
Moving the hat is rumored to be the first step in what will be a major makeover for Disney’s Hollywood Studios. This will likely happen over a period of many years, but the park is expected to get (we’ll try and figure out the order of these later): Star Wars land, Toy Story play land, Cars Land (junior edition), a new parking lot entrance and extra parking spots, a performance corridor for parades, and a placemaking overlay on the order of Disney’s California Adventure (possibly with an entirely new entrance plaza).
Every generation this store will lose meaning until some day when kids won’t even remember what film was.
Disney’s The Lion King Musical continues its amazing 17 year run on Broadway and around the world. More than 70 million people have experience the unforgettable music and the unique theatrical storytelling of this Broadway spectacular helping it become one of the most successful musicals of all time.
The song “Shadowland” was adopted from the films score and added to the musical’s second act. In it, Nala has decided to leave the prideland to find help after rebuking Scar’s desire to make her his Queen. Disney Theatrical has just released a lyric video for the song:
You can find The Lion King on Broadway in New York, New York, where it plays 8 times a week in the heart of Times Square at the Minskoff Theatre. There are at least 5 other productions at any time playing internationally as well.
Have you see The Lion King on stage? What did you think of the production?
