It’s About Time for Loki on Disney+

He's the God of Mischief. The Black Sheep of the Family. The Hulk's plaything. His name is Loki and he's coming to a Disney+ screen near you. Marvel Films continues its storytelling magic on the small screen, following up Wandavision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier with Loki, debuting on Disney+ this Wednesday. Picking up directly from his disappearing act in the past in Avengers: End Game (thanks to the clumsy fight that ironically places the Tesseract at the Asgardian's feet), Loki sees our anti-hero take on a rather unusual adversary. While still catching his bearings after a quick exit from the main timeline in the past (your head hurt yet?), Loki ...

Disney’s Cruella Deserves Best in Show

What Wicked did for that witch from the west, Cruella achieves for Disney's puppy-loathing villainess. Hitting theaters and Disney+ with Premier Access on Friday, May 28, Disney's latest live-action film offers up the secret origin of 101 Dalmations' baddest baddie. The Story of Cruella de Vil Set in 1970s London during the punk rock revolution, Cruella tells the story about the rebellious early days of Disney's most notorious (and most fashionable) villainess, Cruella de Vil. Without giving too much away, the main story follows a young, clever girl named Estella who's sole dream is to become a world-famous fashion designer. After befriending a pair of young thieves on the streets of London, Estella embarks ...

Street Fight: The Muppets vs. Sesame Street

Interviewing Kermit and Miss Piggy was the highlight of my journalism career. As a hardcore Muppets fan, I have loved watching Fozzie Bear, Gonzo, Animal, Beaker and the Swedish Chef get things started. Now, I also loved Sesame Street as a kid. The Count was always a favorite (though I fully admit, I had a hand puppet of him as a kid that scared me to death) and there is no greater superhero than Super Grover. Recently, however, I heard of a gang war brewing. A throw-down to end all throw-downs. The Muppets had entered Sesame Street and it was time to take out the trash. Kaci Marie posted what seemed a harmless little ...

Disney’s Frozen 2 Gift Pack Giveaway!

Disney's Frozen holds a real special place in my heart. No, it actually has nothing to do with my kids either. To me, Frozen was my first real step into the world of Disney PR as a blogger. Yep, some six years ago, I was a fairly young blogger who happened to worm his way into a special invitation to go interview the cast and musicians behind Disney's upcoming animated film Frozen. It was roughly one month before "Let it Go" was unleashed on the big screen for the world, and there I was sitting in the Waldorf Astoria in New York City interviewing the one and only Kristen Bell. The rest, ...

The Star Wars Episode IX Trailer Brings My Childhood Full Circle

Star Wars Celebration is going on right now in Chicago and The Force is stronger than ever. That's because Disney has dropped the name of the final "original" trilogy film... Star Wars: Episode IX - The Rise of Skywalker. They even announced a release date of December 20. Oh, and they also surprised the world with a little teaser trailer. Gah! Cover your keyboard to protect it from the drool and take a gander! Did you get goose pimples like I did? Seriously. Story wise, not much is explained. But snippets of awesomeness prevail, which no doubt will lead to eight long months of theories and speculation. First, we start out with Rey on ...

This Fanboy Loved Everything About Captain Marvel, Including the Cat

Let me say this right from the start. Captain Marvel is not a great female-lead superhero movie. It's not a feminist-powered, man-bashing film either. Captain Marvel is just an amazingly fun, great movie that happens to have a female lead. It's sad that there even has to be a discussion or a distinction in gender these days when discussing things like entertainment. But apparently that's where we are in society today. I loved Captain Marvel. I thought it was a fantastic film that was yet again a very different type of Marvel movie much in the vein that Ant-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy were. It ties in beautifully with the entire ...
