Random Disney Musings: Meryl, Oscars, & Buses

Well hey there everybody! I haven’t written an article in a while, so I thought I would catch everyone up on some recent Disney news, large or small.

  • Into the Woods, the Sondheim classic musical, is becoming a film through Disney and Warner Brothers. They recently had a workshop in October with names like Anna Kendrick (AMAZING!) and Megan Hilty (INCREDIBLE!) playing lead roles. Recently though, reports have said that Meryl Streep will play the wicked witch. Personally, Meryl in any film is great, but when it is a musical, I get even more excited! I absolutely loved her in Mamma Mia, so this is great news.
  • While everyone was talking about boobs, awesome Sound of Music jokes, or Jennifer Lawrence’s wonderful birthday wish for fellow nominee Emmanuelle Riva, the producer of Paperman was getting kicked out of the Dolby Theatre. After Paperman won the Oscar for Best Animated Short, the producer, seated on the balcony, was seen throwing 5 paper airplanes in celebration. She was kicked out for 10 minutes and was eventually let back in.
  • A new Walt Disney World Resort Bus was seen around property this past week sporting a new design. Instead of the usually purple Mickey motif, it has now changed to a more subtle red, white and silver look.
