Toy Story of Terror Blu Ray Review

JESSIE, BUZZ LIGHTYEAR, WOODY

Halloween will be here before you know it and there’s nothing like shutting off the lights, making some popcorn and watching your favorite holiday movies.

Last year, ABC introduced us to the spooky 30 minute Toy Story special, Toy Story of Terror.

COMBAT CARL, JESSIE

This week, Disney/Pixar released TSoT on Blu Ray, and digitally through Disney Movies Anywhere, and before you ask yourself why you should invest our hard earned money in a 30 minute short film, check out the awesome bonus features that are included in the Blu Ray Combo Pack: Read the rest of this entry »

Disney to Air Aladdin this Weekend in Robin Williams Tribute

Genie Aladdin Robin Williams

It seems that everyone is saddened by the sudden passing of actor and comic, Robbin Williams, this week.

Williams has displayed so much versatility in roles that would make you think, cry and laugh.

Most fans tie Williams to one of the greatest animated companions in the history of Disney movies, Genie from Aladdin.

In honor of Robin Williams, Disney Channel, Disney XD and Disney Junior will be airing Aladdin throughout the weekend.

This is a great chance to re-watch the film if you’re a fan, discover a Disney classic if you’ve never seen it before or even introduce your kids to it if they have yet to experience the magic.

Be sure to check out Aladdin on the following days and times.

  • Saturday, August 16 (9:00 a.m. and 6:30 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney Channel.
  • Sunday, August 17 (11:00 a.m. and 7:30 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney XD.
  • Sunday, August 17 (6:00 p.m., ET/PT) and Monday, August 18 (11:00 a.m., ET/PT) on Disney Junior.

Aladdin was personally one of my favorite films growing up and we here at Disney Geekery send our love and thoughts to Williams’ family.

Disney to Release Frozen Sing-Along Edition November 18th

Frozen Sing-Along

There’s hardly a day where I don’t hear someone singing Let it Go or Do You Want To Build A Snowman around my home or office. One of the things that makes Frozen as magical as it was is the music.

It was already announced that fans will soon be able to visit their local theater and enjoy a Sing-Along version of Frozen where it’s not only encouraged to sing along but the lyrics will be provided on the screen so fans can follow along regardless if they know all the words.

But now, Disney is giving Frozen fans the ability to gather their friends and have a Frozen Sing-Along in the comfort of their own home this November 18th!

The DVD and digital version will include both the original theatrical version of the film along with the sing-along version. Also, just like in theaters, the Mickey Mouse short Get A Horse will also be included.

So…do YOU want to build a snowman?

Multiple Frozen Sequels Announced…But it Isn’t What You Think

Frozen Let It Go Golden Globe

In an unexpected turn of events, Disney has announced that multiple sequels to the hit film Frozen were due for release in 2015. The catch? They will come as books, not movies.

Starting January 6, 2015, Random House will be releasing 2 books, Anna & Elsa #1: All Hail the Queen and Anna & Elsa #2: Memory and Magic

Random House is also the publisher of the Never Girls series of books that takes place in Peter Pan’s home of Never Land.

With regards to publishing books based on Disney’s Frozen, Barbara Marcus, president of Random House’s children’s division, said:

We have seen our Disney Never Girls series fill a real niche in the chapter book market, and with the momentum for Frozen only continuing to grow, we knew this was the perfect focus for this new series.

There is no word yet as to the targeted age range of the upcoming series but it appears as if Disney and Random House will be going after a younger market.

With box office numbers the way they were for Frozen, we can only imagine Anna and Elsa will take to the big screen again and that the franchise will have a larger presence at The Disney Parks. But until that happens, fans will have to continue the sisters’ adventure in the pages of a series of book.

Muppets: Most Wanted Blu Ray Review

MuppetsMostWantedBlurayCombo

It’s not easy being…mean, but there are plenty of laughs coming home this week as Muppets: Most Wanted hits store shelves this Tuesday!

Since we’ve already reviewed the film, we’d like to take this time to review some of the special features included on the DVD and Blu Ray.

MUPPETS MOST WANTED

For those who have not seen the movie already, Muppets: Most Wanted takes place immediately after the events of the first film. This time, a Kermit the Frog look-a-like, Constantine, poses as the famous frog to infiltrate The Muppets and steal the Crown Jewels under the cloak of a world tour.

The Blu Ray Combo Pack comes with 3 different versions of the film, including the “Unnecessarily Extended Edition”, which features 12 minutes of footage that was not included in the theatrical version.

One of my favorite bonus features is the “The Longer Longest Blooper Reel in Muppets History”. Bloopers are always fun to watch but this reel is chock full of hilarious moments of botched lines, breaking character and technical difficulties. The best part of it all was watching Ricky Gervais act alongside Constantine…quite often unsuccessfully. Read the rest of this entry »
