Dismaland

Disneyland is billed as “The Happiest Place on Earth,” but happy isn’t for everyone. Some people find all that relentless cheer to be kinda creepy, or simply prefer to mix things up with more offbeat, macabre entertainments. For all those people, there’s Banksy‘s Dismaland.

Touted as “the UK’s most disappointing new visitor attraction,” Dismaland showcases work by Damien Hurst, Jenny Holzer, and other artists (in addition to Bansky himself). It also features an hourlong program of short films by Ze Frank, Kristen Lepore, and many more. Get the Banksy Dismaland preview, and watch all 24 shorts, after the jump. Read More »

If there’s one downer to the Star Wars Land news announced today, it’s that we’ve still got a while to wait before we can actually go to there, as Star Wars nerd Liz Lemon would put it. Fortunately, Disney’s got a couple other Star Wars-themed treats in store for park visitors in the near future.

At D23, Disney announced a Star Wars: Season of the Force seasonal event coming to Disneyland and Disney World in early 2016. Season of the Force will turn Space Mountain into Hyperspace Mountain, a Star Wars-themed attraction.

At the last D23 Expo in 2013, Disney didn’t have much to reveal about Disney World’s upcoming theme park land based on James Cameron‘s epic Avatar franchise, offering just a vague tease of props and photos from Imagineering’s research scout to Pandora.
