Disney to Reboot “The Rocketeer”

Disney Rocketeer Reboot

Disney has announced plans to reboot the classic 1991 film, The Rocketeer.

Though The Rocketeer didn’t garner box office success when it first opened, it had a strong cult following which kept the franchise strong throughout the years and even caught a second wind recently in the art world.

According to The Hollywood Reporter:

The new take keeps the story in a period setting and offers a fresh view on the characters. Set six years after the original Rocketeer and after Secord has vanished while fighting the Nazis, an unlikely new hero emerges: a young African–American female pilot, who takes up the mantle of Rocketeer in an attempt to stop an ambitious and corrupt rocket scientist from stealing jet-pack technology in what could prove to be a turning point in the Cold War.

With recent reboots like Ghostbusters being a box office flop, one has to wonder if audiences are becoming fatigued with reboots altogether. Though it was difficult for Sony to reboot something that was flawless in the eyes of the fans, many feel like a reboot of The Rocketeer offers a lot more room to improve on the original.

Max Winkler and Matt Spicer will be in charge of the script and Brigham Taylor (The Jungle Book) will be the producer.

There is no further information on when The Rocketeer will be set to release.

Is Disney’s “Emoji Blitz” Game the New Tsum Tsum?

Yesterday, Disney launched Emoji Blitz for Android and iOS and though the game isn’t revolutionary in gameplay, it certainly sets itself apart from games like Candy Crush by allowing you to play with adorable emoji versions of your favorite Disney characters!

If you’re as obsessed as I am with collection games, where you need to play in order to earn more characters similar to the Tsum Tsum mobile game, than chances are you won’t want to put Emoji Blitz down.

The best part of this game is that not only do you get to earn characters in-game as you play through, but the characters you unlock go into a Disney emoji keyboard which can be used in your messaging app!

Disney’s Emoji Blitz is currently available in Google’s Android store as well as Apple’s App Store. Get it today and start collecting emoji!
