Movie Review: Big Hero 6

Disney does super­heroes, sort of. That's basi­cally what Big Hero 6 is, but it's worth taking a moment to clarify what it isn't. It is not a Marvel animated movie, nor is it a Pixar movie. Approaching it expecting either of those things will likely end in disap­point­ment. Gener­ally Big Hero 6 follows a tradi­tional Disney story arc. It executes it well and uses the trap­pings of super­hero stories effec­tively but you can see its origins in The Lion King and other Disney clas­sics. What's It All About? Hiro Hamada is a super smart kid with a talent for elec­tronics who lacks direction.

Comic Book Review: Star Wars #1 by Jason Aaron and John Cassaday

Ever since Disney bought Lucas­film comic book fans have been waiting for Star Wars to return to home.  The very first licensed Star Wars comics were produced by Marvel so there is a nice symmetry to this, though we shouldn't dismiss the fine work done by Dark Horse with the fran­chise over the years. So how does the new Star Wars #1 stack up against previous comics? Is this a must buy, or just another cheap cash in? A-List Creators Say This Book Matters Just based on the talent that Marvel is throwing at the book, I'd say they aren't just cashing in. Jason Aaron may not be a house­hold name outside of comics circles but his work for Marvel on Thor and Wolverine is very highly regarded as is his Vertigo series Scalped. John Cassaday mean­while is an Eisner award winning penciller. In short Marvel has put A-list talent on a licensed title which is very unusual.

Minion Captain Jack Sparrow Artwork

I love a good mashup and this is a good mashup. What do you get when you cross Despi­cable Me with the Pirates of the Caribbean? Well natu­rally you get a Captain Jack Sparrow. This rather excel­lent drawing was done by Atom­ic­circuS using markers and color pencils. I think he's done a great job of capturing the look of Captain Jack while still making this a suit­ably miniony minion. Source: DeviantArt — Minion Captain Jack Sparrow

Disney Fan Art — Elsa Drawn On Let It Go Sheet Music

You might think that people would be starting to run out of ways to riff on Disney's Frozen and the song Let It Go. But, appar­ently, not yet. Andrew Place drew this sketch of Elsa from Frozen using colored pencils  and sharpie directly onto the sheet music for the song Let It Go. Admit­tedly the result does tech­ni­cally make the sheet music unus­able but it's very nice never the less and a cute conceit I think given how closely that song is asso­ci­ated with that char­acter. The man's talents span well beyond Disney fan art mind you and if you enjoy geek culture images, his DeviantArt page is defi­nitely worth a visit. Source: DeviantArt — Elsa on LET IT GO sheet music

The Little Mermaid Hand Carved Crystal Vase

Viczan is a profes­sional glass engraver who does work for Disney Resorts. This hand carved and engraved crystal vase featuring The Little Mermaid is (he says) one of his best pieces. It's certainly quite stun­ning. The work was done during his time at the Tokyo Disney Resort but it sounds as though he is moving/has … Continue reading The Little Mermaid Hand Carved Crystal Vase

LEGO Disney — Maleficent Bust

Hmm, that title could be easily misread… But really this is a magnif­i­cent LEGO bust of Malef­i­cent. Specif­i­cally as portrayed by Angelina Jolie in the recent move Malef­i­cent As the builder DAMBAEK C notes, it's chal­lenging to define things like cheek­bones out of LEGO. But he's managed it and the result is instantly recog­nize­able and unmis­tak­ably Malef­i­cent Source: MOCPages — Malef­i­cent (bust)

Doctor Who… The Disney Movie

Artist Stephen Byrne has produced this poster of how he imag­ines a Disney version of Doctor Who might go. In this scenario all 13 incar­na­tions of the Doctor are present at one time and it's inter­esting to see how he has rein­ter­preted each version in a Disney style. Not only does his artwork look good… … Continue reading Doctor Who… The Disney Movie
