Disneyland Model

First and foremost, /Film is all about movies. But as entertainment has evolved over the years, we’ve come to embrace the cinematic nature of popular TV shows like Game of Thrones and Westworld, the influential place that Saturday Night Live holds in entertainment, and the immersive experience that theme parks provide in an attempt to help us escape into the movies as best they can.

So today, we bring you an astounding creation by an architect named Dave Sheegog that will have Disneyland fans impressed to the max. The architect, who is also an avid model railroad collector, has created a 1/20 scale model of Disneyland, complete with the train that runs through the theme park. Check out the Disneyland model after the jump. Read More »

TRON Ride Video

There’s a new Disney theme park hitting Shanghai next month, and TRON fans will be jealous when they see the new ride that is only being built in China. We got a glimpse at some concept art for the attraction from overseas, but now that the park is getting really close to opening on June 16, we get to see how the ride turned out in reality.

For those who don’t have the coin to make it over to Shanghai but still want to see what they’re missing out on, a new video has emerged online from someone who was lucky enough to check out the ride during the soft open and cast member previews. Thankfully, they brought their camera and turned it on for the full ride, and it’s a pretty cool.

new star wars fireworks show

It’s been about six months since Star Wars Land at Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts was first announced at D23, and in that time we’ve come up with tons of questions and not very many answers. That didn’t exactly change with tonight’s big Star Wars Land preview on ABC’s The Wonderful World of Disney: Disneyland 60 special — we still don’t know when exactly it’ll open, and we don’t know that much about what rides, stores, etc. to expect — but we did get a better sense of what the themed area will look like.

A whole bunch of new Star Wars Land concept art was revealed during the show, teasing a Millennium Falcon attraction, a Star Wars-themed street market, a cantina, a dinner club, and much more. Flip through the gallery of Star Wars Land concept art, and watch a video of the Star Wars Land presentation after the jump.  Read More »

disneyland shanghai opening

After more than a decade of planning and a five years of construction, the Walt Disney Company has revealed an opening date for their newest theme park. The Shanghai Disney Resort will open its gates on June 16, 2016, bringing the most popular name in themed entertainment to an audience who is becoming more and more important to every media company’s bottom line.

And while we can (and will) dip our toe into what Shanghai Disneyland means in the grand scheme of theme parks, movies, and the future of mass entertainment, we also have to accept that this is one slick looking destination. Full details, including pictures of several new rides and attractions, can be found below.
