Yes, we know it’s still summer. But since Christmas in July is apparently a thing, we figured it couldn’t hurt to round up some of the new Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments that are debuting this year. Previously, we’ve covered new additions to the ever-growing line of decorations with Star Wars, Harry Potter, Pixar Animation and more, but today we’re focusing on strictly Disney.
Right now, Hallmark has a bunch of new Disney ornaments in the new 2019 collection featuring characters from their classic hand-drawn animated movies like The Lion King, Lady and the Tramp, and The Little Mermaid, their holiday favorite The Nightmare Before Christmas, and even their new movies like Moana and Zootopia.

Not too long ago, we learned that Frozen voice actor Josh Gad might be working with Once Upon a Time creators Edward Kitsis & Adam Horowitz on a new show that would bring The Muppets to Disney+. However, it sounds like that’s not all Jim Henson’s beloved puppet creations will be up to on the Disney streaming service.
A new rumor says The Muppets will also be starring in their own variety show-style shorts modeled after a trio of unscripted show formats. That sounds an awful lot like a throwback to the kind of sketches that The Muppets used to be part of on The Muppet Show back in the 1970s, as well as Muppets Tonight from the late 1990s. Read More »

The series, titled The Muppets, was a documentary-style workplace comedy along the lines of The Office about the Muppets working on a late night program starring Miss Piggy. But audiences weren’t too keen on the series, and it was canceled after a single season. But don’t count The Muppets out yet.
Nearly a full year ago, we learned that Disney was interested in reviving The Muppets for a new series on the upcoming streaming service Disney+.

If you’re seeing a lot of movies in theaters, then there’s a good chance that you’ve already watched the same trailer for A Star Is Born dozens of times by now. Either that or you’re starting to see two different shorter trailers before movies that play out like clips with mini trailers attached to them. No matter which you’ve seen, we promise that you haven’t seen the best version yet.
Some genius took the audio from A Star Is Born trailer, including Bradley Cooper‘s gruff voice and Lady Gaga‘s long notes, and set it to footage of Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy from all of The Muppets movies over the years. It’s amazing how perfectly their relationship fits the vibe of the trailer for A Star Is Born, and now this is the only version of the movie we want. Read More »
