Another of Disney’s many, many, many live-action remakes is moving forward. Aladdin has conjured up a new director in Guy Ritchie, who’ll work from a script by John August. The news follows last week’s reveal of a Mulan release date and last month’s announcement of a Lion King remake. Read More »
If you’re a fan of LEGO and Disney, then you’ll probably want to start saving your money for a massive set that will bring the magic of Walt Disney World to your collectible shelf.
LEGO has just announced the arrival of a new official set that recreates Cinderella‘s iconic castle out of 4,080 LEGO pieces. If you can’t think in your head what Cinderella’s castle looks like, it’s the one that you can see from pretty much anywhere in Walt Disney World, but not the one that you see in the Disney logo that plays before movies. What’s cool is that even though this is Cinderella’s castle, it’s chock full of Disney easter eggs.

In addition to the LEGO minifgures that come with the various building block playsets, the toy company has also been selling individual minifigures. However, rather than being able to choose which minifigures you want to buy, you have to take your chances by buying them blind and hope you get one you don’t have yet. Or you can be the person who stands in the aisle and tries to feel the little plastic packages to determine if you’re getting the figure you want.
Anyway, if you’re a Disney fan, you’re probably going to be interested in the latest series of minifigures that will give some of Disney’s most famous animated characters the building block treatment. There’s a series of 18 new LEGO Disney minifigures featuring characters from The Incredibles, The Little Mermaid, Peter Pan and more. Read More »

Disney is apparently determined to remake, reimagine, or retell every fairy tale in its animated feature stable, with new versions of everything from Beauty and the Beast to Winnie the Pooh in the works. But one character you won’t see make a comeback is Robin Williams‘ Genie from 1992’s Aladdin.
When Williams voiced the jolly blue giant, he recorded enough material that Disney could cobble together an entirely new performance out of the outtakes. However, Williams’ will prevents the studio from doing any such thing. Read about the future of the Robin Williams Genie character after the jump. Read More »
