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 … Continue reading Movie Review: Big Hero 6
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 … Continue reading Comic Book Review: Star Wars #1 by Jason Aaron and John Cassaday
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 … Continue reading Minion Captain Jack Sparrow Artwork
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 … Continue reading Disney Fan Art — Elsa Drawn On Let It Go Sheet Music
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 moved … Continue reading The Little Mermaid Hand Carved Crystal Vase
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 … Continue reading LEGO Disney — Maleficent Bust
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… I would probably … Continue reading Doctor Who… The Disney Movie
Time for another great bit of Disney fan art. This time round it’s Captain Hook who’s getting the treatment. To be honest I’ve never really looked on him as a crook precisely, though he is clearly a villain. But that’s just me and its beside the point. This artwork by ReddyArts gives us Captain Hook in a real swashbuckling … Continue reading Disney Fan Art — Hook, The World’s Most Famous Crook
So with Disney’s Maleficent being released recently there’s been a bit of a boost in artwork featuring the character. This piece by magion02 stood out for me. It’s not the animated version of Maleficent or the Angelina Jolie version but rather an individual interpretation but still featuring the key elements that people recognize. The choice to have Maleficient … Continue reading Disney Fan Art — Maleficent
So… Frozen. It’s a movie. You may have heard of it. Disney… musical? Nothing? Well for the sake of the three people who have managed to completely culturally isolate themselves let me explain that there’s a snowman in it by the name of Olaf. And if you’d like to be able to build that LEGO snowman… well … Continue reading Do You Want To Build A LEGO Snowman?
So the final element in Disney’s New Fantasyland expansion for The Magic Kingdom is finally open and now everyone (or at least everyone with $100 for a park ticket) can try out the new family coaster/dark ride The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. It’s been pretty extensively covered everywhere so I’m sure you’ve seen the promotional photos and … Continue reading Photos From The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train In The Magic Kingdom
This image amuses me, mainly because I know there’s going to be a reaction to it. Mashing up Moulin Rouge and Disney in the form of Mickey and Minnie Mouse is a bizarre sort of thing to do, but it’s been very nicely executed by Mario Oscar Gabrielle.

This cosplay of Belle and Beast (in his princely form) is pretty much pitch perfect. Amazing costuming, great bit of photography.

You can get updated on his posts directly on the blog here or through the usual social networking suspects. What? You expected me … Continue reading Disney Cosplay — Beauty And The Beast
What do you mean you haven’t been waiting for it? Oh quit fussing, at least it’s not yet another Let It Go parody! Is it just me or is Disney’s Frozen generating mashups and parodies and an exceptionally high rate anyway? This time round we get to see Anna, Elsa and co dance to Michael Jackson’s … Continue reading The Frozen / Thriller Mashup You’ve Been Waiting For!
So Disney’s movie Maleficent, which is supposed to give a bit of a Wicked spin on the Sleeping Beauty villain isn’t even out yet, but I guess those photos of Angelina Jolie have made an impression, because there is cosplay! And excellent work it is too, both in costuming and photography. Source: L.A. JAZE Cosplay Eoghann Irving Overly … Continue reading Disney’s Maleficent Cosplay
