toy story land

A couple of weeks ago, we traveled to Walt Disney World and experienced Toy Story Land at Hollywood Studios park for the first time. To be honest, our expectations were low as from the photos and videos of the new land made it look rather cheap compared to the more highly immersive addition of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Were we surprised? Is Toy Story Land charming, or is it lame?

‘Toy Story 4’ Almost Had an Awful Alternate Ending

Toy Story 4 Alternate Ending

Toy Story 4 surprised us all earlier this summer by somehow providing an even more satisfying (possible) conclusion to the Pixar Animation franchise. The movie gave Woody (Tom Hanks) a proper send-off after following him for four adventures that significantly changed him along the way. But it almost gave Woody’s companion Bo Peep (Annie Potts) a much worse ending than what we saw, and it makes us wonder how it would have changed the rest of the film’s conclusion. Read More »

toy story 4 box office tracking

Toy Story 4 surprised the hell out of everyone this summer by actually being a very good sequel that somehow put a better period on the end of the Pixar Animation franchise than the already stellar ending of Toy Story 3. But if you missed your chance to catch the return of Woody and Buzz Lightyear, or you just can’t wait to watch it again, you’ll be happy to hear that both the Toy Story 4 Blu-ray/DVD and Digital release dates have been set for early October. Find out when you can bring Toy Story 4 home below. Read More »

Toy Story 4 Clip

Toy Story 4 is playing in theaters everywhere now. But some people may not yet have been convinced to see it in theaters, so Pixar Animation has released another sneak peek of the animated sequel that introduces a new character named Giggle McDimples (voiced by Ally Maki). Plus, we get to see different versions of Combat Carl (Carl Weathers), who first debuted as an unfortunately blown up action figure in the original Toy Story, but got a more proper introduction in the TV special Toy Story of Terror. Watch the new Toy Story 4 clip below. Read More »

The #MeToo movement has changed how Hollywood addresses allegations of sexual misconduct in the film and television industries, especially when it comes to high-powered producers and executives using their sway to manipulate, coerce and abuse women for their own gratification. And now that movement has caused Disney to look back at a gag from one of Pixar’s animated films and just pretend it never existed.

In conjunction with the release of Toy Story 4, the rest of the Toy Story films were re-released in 4K Ultra HD. That means a lot of people have been going back to see how computer animation has evolved over the years and how good the animation looks in such high-definition. But someone noticed that Disney and Pixar removed a certain sequence from the gag reel that plays during the credits of Toy Story 2. Read More »

Country Bear Jamboree

Update: The official Disney Parks blog, which very rarely comments on theme park rumors, has addressed this one head-on and refuted it.

“Our Imagineers are always looking at ways to bring more magic to our guests through experiences and stories they know, but contrary to rumors, Country Bear Jamboree is not going into hibernation any time soon.  In fact, we’re looking forward to celebrating its 50th anniversary on Oct. 1, 2021, with Henry, the Five Bear Rugs and the rest of the gang.”

Our original article follows.

The Country Bear Jamboree has been a staple at Walt Disney World since the Magic Kingdom theme park opened its doors in 1971, but it may not live to see the park’s upcoming 50th anniversary.

A new rumor says the closing of the long-running attraction is “imminent,” and not only that, but it will be replaced with an audio-animatronic marionette show based on the Toy Story franchise. Walt Disney World purists are, uh, let’s say not pleased about this, especially because part of the rumored plan is to make this change before the park celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2021.
