Update on Disney World’s Fantasyland Expansion

A piece of heaven has come here on earth to grace us with ultimate awesomeness! Here’s the layout! Ugh I just felt chills down my spine 😀 I NEED TO SEE THIS WHEN IT’S DONE.

BELLE’S VILLAGE – nearest to completion. It’s focus is the Prince’s castle and Gaston’s Tavern *squee* There’s also going to be a statue of Gaston in front of his tavern.

UNDER THE SEA: JOURNEY OF THE LITTLE MERMAID – Magic Kingdom’s ride will include Prince Eric’s castle *squee again* When the expansion is complete, the ride will be comprised of three castles and three mountains.

DUMBO – The familiar ride, which will add an additional carousel, will feature an air-conditioned waiting area, where riders will await their turns “much like a restaurant with reservations,” explains Jacobson. Previously, the area also included three tents that would serve as retail operations. Plans have been updated to include only two shops now.

SEVEN DWARFS MAIN TRAIN – this’ll be a new roller coaster attraction which has a “rocking” car (I could already picture the ride being in like an old mine shaft)

25 Years Of Pixar!

Celebrating 25 years of Pixar, 12 feature films, and 20 short films. Pixar Animation makes the best films, there’s no doubt. Each film is unique and special.

We’ve featured a handful of director montages here on /Film recently, and while this “25 Years of Pixar” compilation isn’t quite that, it’s actually pretty similar. In terms of look, tone, and quality, I’d say Pixar is as consistent as many directors.

For the video, NkMcDonalds pulled scenes from works spanning over decades — from ’80s shorts to this year’s Cars 2. If you like Pixar as much as I do, it’ll definitely make you smile and it might even make you tear up a little tiny bit. Watch it after the jump.

Watching all the Pixar films spliced together like this, it’s very easy to see how the studio has evolved over the years from a technical standpoint. Clips from films like A Bug’s Life, which looked sophisticated at the time, now look clunky next to the sleeker visuals of newer movies like Wall-E and Up.

But it also becomes apparent that the real appeal of Pixar goes far beyond cutting-edge graphics. Pixar films are fun to watch partly because of their lush, advanced CGI, but we treasure them for years because of their commitment to strong storytelling and memorable characters. I don’t know about you, but my eyes started getting that tingly about-to-tear-up sensation when the montage got to the scene of Andy explaining what makes Woody so special. You don’t get that kind of emotion just by throwing money at high-tech equipment.

For your reference, here’s a list of the tunes and films used in the video:
Music:
1.Nemo Egg by Thomas Newman (For quote in beginning)
2.Overture by Michael Kamen
3.Kaneda’s Death, Pt. 2 (Adagio in D Minor) by John Murphy
4.Hoppipolla by Sigur Ros

I grew up with these films (and more!) so little snippets really get to me. Happy 25 years! x

Monsters University

Disney revealed today at CinemaCon that the official title to Pixar’s sequel to 2001’s Monsters, Inc. is Monsters University. While details on the film are, in true Pixar fashion, being held tightly under lock and key, the film is said to be a prequel. The rumored plot involves the tale of how Mike Wazowski (voiced by Billy Crystal) and James P. Sullivan (voiced by John Goodman) become best friends in college, at the University of Fear no less, after starting out as enemies.

No word on which cast members will return for the sequel besides Crystal and Goodman, but hopefully Steve Buscemi’s character Randall makes an appearance. Monsters University is currently slated for a November 2nd, 2012 release.
