Star Wars Weekends 2014 kicked off this past weekend and we have a bunch of videos for you Star Wars fans. On Friday we posted a full video of the Star Wars Weekends 2014 Parade and earlier this morning we included JJ Abrams’ surprise video message to Star Wars Weekends in a post about his note to Episode 7 cast and crew.
After the jump we have a bunch of new videos for you including the Star Wars Weekends on stage interviews with Chewbacca actor Peter Mayhew and Jar Jar Binks actor Ahmed Best. Mayhew talks about his efforts to walk again, how the first time he read the Star Wars: Episode VII was during that cast script reading and how JJ Abrams wants to make a film closer to the original trilogy, and more. Inside The Magic also caught on video the special Symphony in the Stars fireworks show at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World, which is a whole firework show set to the music of Star Wars.
Another video captures one of the skits performed before the Stars of the Saga talk show, featuring a troop of Stormtroopers danced to their favorite playlists from Earth including a bunch of popular songs from today like Let It Go from Frozen and Everything is Awesome from the LEGO Movie. Watch all of that and more, after the jump.

The above photo of a Frozen VHS started making the rounds around the internet earlier this week, and took me back.
I’m sure one universal memory most people who grew up during the 1980′s or early 1990′s has is opening up one of those large plastic clamshell cases, popping a Disney animated film into the VHS player and waiting for the magic to begin. These days, reminiscing about those times must sound the same as when my father would tell me about the days before remote controls where he had to turn a dial on the television to change the channels. Okay, I’m getting old.
Had Disney actually produced a VHS version of Frozen? Was the movie that popular that the mouse house decided they could make enough money off the now niche market of primary VHS player owners?

Plus, Iger said Frozen is now one of their top five franchises and they’re “developing some concepts around” it at theme parks. Read more about the Frozen franchise, Guardians and Marvel’s May release dates below. Read More »
Everyone in Hollywood loves sequels. Except Disney Animation. While their partners at Pixar have had no trouble coming up with worthy follow-ups to some of their biggest films, most all of the classic Disney animated films never got theatrical sequels. Even with that fact stated, it’s still a bit of a surprise to hear Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn admit the company hasn’t even begun to think about a sequel to their biggest animated film of all time, Frozen.

When it was first released, no one would have guessed Frozen would become the highest grossing animated film ever. Sure the reviews were solid and the music wonderful, but to some, it felt a tad off. The whole idea of Elsa “letting go” after being locked away like an animal gave the film a slightly off-putting feeling. At least to me.
If you don’t know what I mean, the team at How It Should Have Ended say it better than I ever could. They’ve created their latest video based on the hit film and it hilariously raises some big questions about the parents of Anna and Elsa. There might even be a cameo from a certain popular Marvel Comics series in there.
Below, watch How Frozen Should Have Ended. Read More »
