The surprise character from the credits sequence of Guardians of the Galaxy was Howard the Duck. Funko is also producing a vinyl of this oddball Marvel comic book character. It may have just been a cameo, but he definitely deserves his own bobble head vinyl figure too. Pre-order yours today.
Disney’s animated feature Frozen was so popular during it’s theatrical release, it supported both a regular edition and a sing-along edition in theater at the same time. The original DVD even came out while the movie was still in theaters and people still kept buying tickets to capture the magic. Now, Disney hopes to recapture a bit of that magic with a new Sing-Along version of Frozen on Blu-Ray and DVD.
During the sing=along you can follow the lyrics with a bouncing Frozen snowflake.
The DVD features both the original version and the sing-along, plus Breaking The Ice (an all-new” making of” feature) and the “Get a Horse!” Mickey Mouse Short. All arrives in time for Holiday shopping on DVD and Digital this November 18th 2014.
Will you be adding this to your family’s DVD shelf?

The Magic Kingdom’s Plaza / Hub area is getting some upgraded viewing areas and extra walking paths. Here’s a look at the status of construction through August 2014.
The project is expected to be completed in phases with the new fireworks viewing areas to the left and right of main street opening first then they’ll add additional pathways around the hub and more landscaping. The eventual goal will add a very garden like feel to the Plaza.
Related to this improvement is a project to upgrade the frequently used backstage alley on the Tomorrowland sideo of Main Street. They’ve been doing some tests backstage where cameras aren’t allowed, but you can start to see some of the changes form on stage now too. I hope they enclose it into a beautiful arcade, but I’ll be happy with some decent theming and an alternate route.

Newsies had a long path to success. The idea of moving it from film to stage took a lot of effort, but to the acclaim of fans everywhere, eventually it got done. From a workshop at the Papermill theatre, to a limited 8-week engagement on Broadway that grew into two years. It’s been Disney Theatrical’s surprise hit of the Great White Way. Even picked up numerous awards along the way, including two Tony’s.
But alas, all good things must come to an end. And now the Newsies are leaving the Nederlander theater for a nationwide tour. But before they left to seize the day again, they took one last curtain call.
Here it is for all of us who missed it.
Newsies will now hit the road beginning this October. Check out the list of cities below the jump:
