Find out details on how you can obtain both of these prints, and see the artwork in high resolution, after the jump.

In June, we told you that The Walt Disney Company was considering a $1 billion-plus expansion of the Disneyland Resort, which would bring unknown new attractions, a new parking structure with at least 5,000 parking spots and other improvements to the Southern California-based theme parks.
The Disney Company asked the city of Anaheim for an extension on their deal to forgo a tax on theme park admission tickets for another 30 years, which was approved last month by a 3 to 2 vote by the Anaheim City Council. Following the no-tax extension, it has been revealed that Disney has purchased two large pieces of land near the Disneyland park, but what does this mean? Find out if this new Disneyland land purchase could mean new Marvel and Star Wars attractions are being planned for the resort.

It’s been just over a year since Guardians of the Galaxy hit theaters, impressing Marvel fans around the world, and even some who weren’t the biggest supporters of Marvel’s cinematic universe. The sci-fi adventure proved to be one of the more original films from Marvel Studios, and it’s really opened up the comic book studio’s world in a big way.
And with one year passing since the theatrical release, director James Gunn reflected on his first big budget blockbuster and went out of his way to thank fans who made it such a huge hit, making him feel like he made the movie everyone wanted to see, whether they knew it or not. Find out what James Gunn had to say about Guardians of the Galaxy one year later after the jump! Read More »
If you’ve watched Walt Disney Animation‘s computer animated films in recent years and wondered how they’re able to make their characters and settings look so realistic, a new video explains the process in very simple terms.
Walt Disney Animation has posted a roughly 10-minute video diving into their image rendering engine called Hyperion, explaining how the software uses a technique called path tracing to calculate how light will bounce off any given object in a scene. It’s a very fascinating and well-explained technique that will have you looking at Disney movies in a whole new light (no pun intended).

So far the cast assembled for the first Star Wars Anthology film has been an eclectic mix of talent. Felicity Jones has taken the lead role in Star Wars: Rogue One while other cast members include Riz Ahmed, Sam Claflin, Diego Luna, Forest Whitaker and maybe Ben Mendelsohn. However, we don’t really know anything about who these actors are playing.
The only tidbit that’s been floating around the internet is that Felicity Jones was the rebel leader of the team assembled to try to steal the Death Star plans in a time period shortly before the beginning of A New Hope. Now a new detail about her character has surfaced that is intriguing, but also potentially hard to believe.

Before Harrison Ford crashed his plane in Los Angeles, he had already sustained a pretty significant injury on the set of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, breaking his left leg. But it turns out that wasn’t the only injury sustained during the production of Episode VII.
In fact, when one of the doors on the film’s set fell on Harrison Ford’s leg, director JJ Abrams (who appeared on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart yesterday) rushed over to help by lifting the object off Ford as quickly as possible. But in the process, Abrams actually broke his back. That’s right, Abrams literally broke his back trying to make this movie for Star Wars fans.
