Disney Junior to Reboot “Muppet Babies”

Muppet Babies on Disney Junior

Muppet Babies was a traditionally animated series that aired in the 1980s where all of the lovable Muppets you know today were scaled down to toddler sizes and went on imaginative journeys when their nanny, who we only knew by her sock, had left the room.

Disney Junior is relaunching the series as a CGI animated show in 2018 and will be geared towards children between the ages of 4-7.

Debbie McClellan, vice president, the Muppets Studio said:

Bringing Muppet Babies to Disney Junior is a wonderful opportunity to reach a new generation of viewers and to creatively build on the innovative original series. We hope to engage and delight the nostalgic fans while also entertaining new kids, parents and diverse audiences through heart and humor as only the Muppets can deliver.

Disney Removes “Moana’s” Maui Costumes and Clothing from Stores

Maui Costume

This week, the Disney Store removed all traces of Maui costumes and clothing from the upcoming animated film, Moana.

The film takes place in a Polynesian setting where Moana, the daughter of the village’s chief, goes on a sea adventure with her demigod friend Maui in order to save her island.

Though the film is slated to open the week of Thanksgiving, it has created enough buzz to warrant a slew of Halloween costumes…which was immediately followed by controversy.

Moana and Maui

A vocal minority felt as though Maui’s skin should not be used as a costume for the sake of cultural appropriation. The tattoos are a major part of Polynesian culture as well as the film itself.

Offended parties took to social media to voice their distaste with the costume and Disney had it removed from both their physical and online stores in about a week.

Do you feel Disney made the right decision?

This footage comes from the Fantasy Faire area at Disneyland in Anaheim, CA. When the African Children’s Choir sings and dances for Belle, the actress begins to tear up in what seems like a moment of pure joy.

This is the type of magic we love seeing at the Happiest place on Earth!

“The Jungle Book” Blu Ray Review

The Jungle Book Blu Ray

If ever there was a Blu Ray movie to invest in for the special features, Disney’s live-action remake of The Jungle Book is certainly it.

Jon Favreau continues to push his talents as a Director by creating a vast and immense world that would have audiences believing that the whole film was, in fact, shot in a jungle.

When I tell people that it was actually filmed solely in a studio in Los Angeles, their appreciation for the film reaches a new level.

Jungle Book Baloo

Imagine watching The Jungle Book for the first time as you marvel at Mowgli as he swims, climbs and jumps through lush vegetation. Now imagine the jungle around him disappears and all you see is a young boy jumping around on a sound stage over green screen boxes and interacting with stand-ins…including Favreau himself.
