Wednesday Wanderings – Disney Link Roundup

  • The Pixar Blog has post the transcript of part one of  their interview with WALL-E Director Andrew Stanton.
  • Now the AP is reporting that Paul Newman, known to Pixar fans as the voice of Doc Hudson in Cars, does have cancer and is receiving treatment. At least according to a close friend of his. KTLA may have been right after all, unfortunately.
  • A documentary by filmmaker Richard Linklater will be shown on ESPN this weekend, marking it’s first wide distribution. Inning by Inning is a profile of Augie Garrido, considered one of the “winningest” coaches in NCAA baseball.
  • So far Disney has stayed away from Social Networking, with Disney Mom’s Club being it’s first attempt, now is planning on rolling out it’s own social network aimed at families. Seems like a bit of overlap, but more news soon apparently.
  • TV Squad is hopeful the new Muppet Movie can revive the franchise. I hope so too. It has a very familiar plot.
  • Visible signs of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Islands of Adventure are much more evident now. I can’t wait and just might have to geta Universal AP at when it previews. Sounds like part of WWoHP could be open next year. Wow.
  • Btw, My regard for J.K. Rowling has been raised more than a few notches after reading her Commencement address to the 2008 class of Harvard.
