The Nightmare Before Christmas 4D El Capitan Theatre

What’s this? WHAT’S THIS?!

Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas is back at Disney’s majestic El Capitan Theatre in the heart of Hollywood, CA.

For 21 years the El Capitan has added magic to Halloween time by showing the classic 1993 film in 4D.

Lights around the theater flicker, fog rises from the floor and imitation snow falls from the balcony in an effort to submerge audiences with an experience like none other.

This year’s limited run of Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas begins this Friday, October 24th and will run until November 2nd.

Danny Elfman The Nightmare Before Christmas El Capitan Theatre

As with every year, the El Capitan Theater always has an extra special opening night with surprises guests. Whether it be a panel with Danny Elfman, a performance by Evanescence’s Amy Lee or even a chat from the man himself, Tim Burton.

There is no hint as to who will be the special guest this year but the official El Capitan website has launched a video promoting the event with composer of the soundtrack, and singing voice of Jack Skellington, Danny Elfman.

Will he be this year’s super secret special guest? We will be sure to let you know.

Until then, check out our coverage of last year’s event and stay tuned for more info!

ABC Announces “Toy Story That Time Forgot” Special

Toy Story That Time Forgot

ABC has announced its plans to bring Toy Story back to network TV for an all new holiday special set to premier Tuesday, December 2nd at 8PM.

The special will feature the voices of Tim Allen and Tom Hanks who will be revisiting their role of Buzz Lightyear and Woody respectively.

Toy Story That Time Forgot takes place after a Christmas season where the toys find themselves lost in an uncharted territory when a set of the coolest action figures turns out to be dangerously delusional. It is up to Trixie to help the toys to return to Bonnie’s room.

This will be the second Toy Story special to air on ABC following last year’s popular Halloween special, Toy Story of Terror.

We Unbox and Review the 17″ Disney Store Limited Edition Aurora and Maleficent Dolls From Sleeping Beauty

Limited Edition Sleeping Beauty Aurora Doll

As we continue with our Sleeping Beauty week, I figured I would put together a little review and unboxing video so our fans could see the gorgeous detail in the latest set of 17″ Limited Edition collectors dolls from the Disney Store.

I had pre-ordered the 17″ Disney Store Limited Edition Aurora doll (seen above) over at the Disney Store on the Walt Disney Studio lot in Burbank, CA.

When I got the call that my pre-order was ready for pickup, I got excited, hopped in my car and went straight to the Disney Store…what I saw when I got there was surprising.

Not only was my Limited Edition Sleeping Beauty Aurora doll waiting for me in all of it’s glory, but 3 other dolls were released in tandem that I wasn’t expecting.

Disney Store Maleficent Doll

The original pre-order I had made was for Aurora in the pink dress. When I got to the register to pay, the kind Cast Member asked if I was interested in Prince Phillip, Aurora in the blue dress or Maleficent. My wallet started to cry.

I ended up bringing home Aurora in the pink dress, Aurora in the blue dress and, one of my all-time favorite Disney villains, Maleficent.

Since words don’t do these dolls justice, I have posted a video below so you can get an idea of what kind of craftsmanship went into these amazingly designed dolls.

Only 4000 of these dolls were made so chances are, if you didn’t pre-order or pick them up on release date, you may have to look to eBay to get your hands on them.
