Re: Hercules on Stage

Yes, the forum members point that out. It is very strange, and the reference to “opening” a show may have been in error, or even for a one-night limited engagement.

Re: Wicked: The Musical: The Movie

That poster seems to reference Michelangelo’s Creation of Adam… which just feels like a reference for reference’s sake. It doesn’t seem to fit the story of Wicked? lol

On the other hand, I’ve liked the other stuff we’ve seen from the film. I am mostly worried about how it will work as a two-parter.

Re: Wish

Oh I agree. It’s hard to imagine “Wish” getting its own attraction at a Disney park like TPATF now is, 10+ years after its original release.

Re: Disney Dolls

I think my favorite Anastasia look is the long dark navy dress she wears to the Cinderella ballet, and I like it on the doll too. And even though the colors are not film-accurate at all, the special edition one (golden box) is also gorgeous and very detailed. That is a beautiful doll! It’s also my ...

Re: Wish

Avaitor, I mostly agree with you. I think Wish has the potential to gain a following if Asha is inducted into the Disney Princess franchise and remains a part of it. If the franchise pumps out backpacks and dolls of Asha alongside the other Princesses, she’ll remain relevant. Every Princess is someb...

Re: Will Disney celebrate it's 105th Anniversary in 2028?

When the plans to celebrate the studio’s 100th were announced, I was a little surprised. I can’t remember another time when there was a company-wide celebration of the founding of the studios. It’s definitely been observed before with TV specials and commemorative pins and such, but I think— and I c...

Re: Disney Legends

Wow… Joe Rohde is only now getting a Disney Legends award?!? That is so surprising to me. He is the Walt Disney of Animal Kingdom… that whole park is basically his vision. He should have gotten this honor years ago.

Re: Is the Disney Movie Club worth it?

Buy The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr Toad/Fun and Fancy Free because the former film is very charming, great viewing in autumn, and the Blu ray comes with The Reluctant Dragon making the 2-movie collection secretly a 3-movie collection.

Re: Disney Voice Actors Discussions- Jodi Benson

Yeah, I concede she’s a little old to play Nellie as written but it’s been played by many women in their 40’s and 50’s. But I understand what you mean. I feel like she’s more suited to R&H musicals than something like Gypsy or even Mame. It’s too bad things didn’t line up in such a way that we c...

Re: The Little Mermaid Discussion

How neat! Thank you for sharing. Any material from the 1997 rerelease is instantly nostalgic to me. I’ve never seen the poster with the other Renaissance characters surrounding Ariel… it reminds me of the iconic Lilo and Stitch ad campaign.
