Last weekend, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World returned to select theaters for the film’s 10th anniversary. It’s actually been 11 years since the movie was released in theaters, but the coronavirus pandemic ruined what would have been last year’s celebrations, so here we are. And it turns out fans were so happy to return to theaters for Edgar Wright‘s adaptation of Bryan Lee O’Malley’s graphic novel series that Universal Pictures will be expanding the anniversary screenings to even more theaters.
But don’t worry if you’re not ready to head back to movie theaters just yet. Because this summer will bring Scott Pilgrim vs. the World home in 4K Ultra HD for the first time ever. Read More »

DC FanDome, the virtual event that surprised everyone last summer by being pretty damn cool, is coming back this October.

Since it hasn’t even been open for two years (and the Disneyland location has been closed for over a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic), there are still millions who haven’t even stepped foot on the Outer Rim planet known as Batuu and the smuggler’s haven known as Black Spire Outpost. Thankfully, there’s a new book that can hold fans over.
The Art of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge by Amy Ratcliffe takes fans through the creation of the Disney theme park attraction, from the first concept art of the new canonical location in the Star Wars saga to ambitious ideas for attractions that never came to fruition.

Although the plethora of artwork is mesmerizing, it also raises many questions about how much more sprawling and epic Galaxy’s Edge could have been without providing many answers as to why some ideas were abandoned.

For kids, the most magical thing about Disney theme parks is getting to interact with the characters they love from movies and TV shows. Of course, we know those characters are just cast members in big puffy body suits made to look like animated characters. However, the geniuses at Disney Imagineering have crafted new state-of-the-art bipedal animatronic technology that will make it so a character like Baby Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy can walk around parks, wave at families, pose for pictures, and even have an impromptu dance party. See Disney’s animatronic Baby Groot in action below. Read More »
Disney Parks recently unveiled their hopeful plans for a massive expansion of Disneyland in Anaheim, California that would allow them to integrate attractions, restaurants, hotels, and more in a single area of the park. But that’s not all Disney Parks has in store for the future of their theme park experiences.
In a recent interview, Disney Parks Chairman Josh D’Amaro talked about the company’s vision for the future of their theme parks across the world.
