Disney Releases New Pixar-Themed MagicBands

Earlier today Disney released five brand new Pixar-themed MagicBands at Shop Parks.  The movies that are being featured are Toy Story, Monsters University, Up, Cars, and Wall-E!

The brand new designs are for the MagicBand 2.0 and for the first time, two of MagicBands have designs on the center icon that is not the Mickey Head symbol we’ve come to expect.

Each of the new MagicBands sells for $22.99 plus tax and can be found in the Shop Parks app and on the Shop Disney website.

Here are the new designs –

I’m kind of partial to the Toy Story and WALL-E ones myself.  How about you?

I imagine that these new MagicBands will be extremely popular, so if you like them and want to get some, you might not want to wait around too long.  Just sayin’.

Disney and Pixar Announce Official Release Date for Toy Story 4

Toy Story fans have been waiting for a release date for Toy Story 4 since John Lasseter announced that the fourth installment of the franchise was announced at the D23 Expo last July.  Well….now we have an official release date for the movie.

On Friday it was announced on the film’s Facebook page that Woody, Buzz, and the rest of the gang are coming back to a theater near you on June 21, 2019.

Josh Cooley is now directing the film after John Lasseter stepped down from the project and Stephany Folsom has been tapped to write the next instalment of the franchise.

It’s unlikely that we’ll learn anything about the movie beyond the rumors until next year. Currently the rumors are suggesting that the movie is going to be about Woody and Bo Peep’s relationship and will not be a direct sequel to Toy Story 3. At least that’s what the rumors are saying.

The voice cast includes Tom Hanks, Laurie Metcalf, Annie Potts, Tim Allen, Joan Cusack, Kristen Schaal, Bonnie Hunt and among others.

On the surface June 2019 seems like a long time from now, but it’s going to be here sooner than we all think.  I for one cannot wait.  This is exciting news.

Hey Howdy Hey!

‘Together Forever – A Pixar Nighttime Spectacular’ Premiering April 13 with the Begin of Pixar Fest

With the beginning of Pixar Fest, Disneyland will be getting a new nighttime spectacular that will light up the park during the celebration.  ‘Together Forever – A Pixar Nighttime Spectacular’ will celebrate friendship through dazzling pyrotechnics and memorable music.  The show will premiere on April 13 with the beginning of Pixar Fest.

I’m a sucker for any of the nighttime shows at the Disney Parks.  I love the Magic Kingdom’s ‘Happily Ever After’ show.  I’m also a big fan of Disneyland’s shows and liked ‘Remember…Dreams Come True’ the last time  that I visited the Disneyland Resort.  So, I’m excited to hear about this new nighttime show.

According to Disneyland –

The stories of “Together Forever” will come to life through projections on iconic park locations: Sleeping Beauty Castle, the water screens of the Rivers of America, the façade of “it’s a small world” and the buildings of Main Street, U.S.A. This nighttime spectacular will even feature Buzz Lightyear and the house from “Up” flying over Sleeping Beauty Castle!

There has been no word from Disney whether this show will only run during Pixar Fest or whether it will continue after the celebration ends.  I for one hope it continues after Pixar Fest since it’s unlikely that I’ll be able to experience Pixar Fest.

My Pixar Tournament and Pixar Movie Rankings

The Christmas and New Years holidays are now over and the news in the Disney Community is a little slow, so how about we delve into the area of the movies and podcasts.

If you are not already subscribed to Disney Magic Hour I suggest that you at least check it out and if you like it, please give it a 5-Star review and subscribe to it.  I personally love this show.  It is one of my favorite shows.  If you are a fan of Disney movies along with the movie studios that fall under the Disney umbrella, this the show for you. Pete has also put together a great community page on Facebook.  I was introduced to the show and the host, Peter Tedone, on the WDW Radio Show.  This show, which publishes weekly, primarily focuses on Disney movies and timely discussion of Disney news.  One of the more popular types of shows that they put out is the “Tournament Bracket” shows where Pete and the gang pit various themes/movies against each other to find the “best of”.

About a month ago, on Show 116 (December 3, 2017), Pete and the gang put together a PIXAR Bracket Tournament, pitting all of the Pixar movies against each other.

Here is the initial bracket –

On the show, the movie WALL-E was chosen as the winner of the tournament.

Here is how my bracket shakes out…

Opening Round –

Monsters University vs. The Good Dinosaur

While neither of these movies is a great movie (by Pixar standards) by any means and I do find Monsters University funny there are just too many plot holes in its connection to Monsters, Inc. for me to totally accept this movie.  And….I do like The Good Dinosaur.  It’s not Pixar’s best effort by any means, but I did like it.  It’s a ‘Buddy Western’ set in the Jurassic Period.  This movie gets my vote because I like it a bit better.

WINNER – The Good Dinosaur

Cars vs. Cars 3

This is a hard one for me since I like both of these movies.  My nod goes to Cars because it was the original and without it we wouldn’t have Cars Land in Disney California Adventure.

WINNER – Cars

Brave vs. Cars 2

While Brave has its faults, the music is wonderful and the background art is gorgeous.  I could go on about how this movie is better, but come on, we’re talking Cars 2 here.

WINNER – Brave

Round 1 –

Toy Story vs. The Good Dinosaur

Is this even a contest?  The Good Dinosaur is cute, but come on, we’re talking Toy Story here.

WINNER – Toy Story

Toy Story 2 vs. The Incredibles

This might be one of the hardest early round decisions.  Both of these movies prior to this tournament are in my Top 5 Pixar movies.  I really like both of these movies….a lot.  I found Toy Story 2 to be very good. We get new toys introduced to the world of toys and we care about them.  If you don’t well up a little during “Jesse’s Song” there might seriously be something wrong with you.  With that being said, The Incredibles is a nearly a perfect superhero movie.  Fans of this movie are finally going to get what we’ve been asking for thirteen years….a sequel.  I guess that I just like The Incredibles more.

WINNER – The Incredibles

Inside Out vs. A Bugs Life

Okay….this is also going to be a hard decision for me, but not for what you think.  I’m not a huge fan of either movie.  A Bugs Life has always ranked near the bottom of my list of Pixar movies.  And I’ll openly admit here that I know I’m in the vast minority about Inside Out, but I thought it was only okay.  It just didn’t appeal to me as much as it did for other people. Pixar really didn’t do anything in this movie that made me care for what happened to any of the characters.  Even though I’m not crazy about either of these movies, Inside Out scratches out a victory here.

WINNER –  Inside Out

Ratatouille vs. Finding Dory

While I enjoyed Finding Dory especially considering that it was a sequel to a movie (Finding Nemo) that wasn’t necessarily asking for a sequel.  It was a cute movie.  In Ratatouille Pixar got us to care about rats, and not just any rats, rats in a restaurant.  This movie has also ranked high in my lists of favorite Pixar movies.

WINNER – Ratatouille

WALL-E vs. Cars

I really liked Cars….I really did.  I wasn’t sure going in whether I’d like it or not, but the more I watched it, them more I liked it.  I also didn’t know what to expect going into WALL-E.  WALL-E is on an entire different level.  This movie has absolutely no dialogue for the first 20 minutes or so, yet you care about what’s going on.  You care about a robot….and a cockroach.  Even when the humans do show up in the movie you still care about the robots.  This is a great movie.

WINNER – WALL-E

Up vs. Coco

This match up is not really fair because I have not seen Coco.  I’ve heard great things about the movie though. Up like WALL-E has a portion of the movie with no dialogue….only music that is wonderfully done.  I loved Up and I have no doubt that I’d love Coco, but I have to go with Up because I’ve seen Coco. Once I see Coco the vote on this could change.

WINNER – Up

Toy Story 3 vs. Brave

Toy Story 3 very well could be the best movie of the Toy Story franchise.  It wraps up the trilogy wonderfully.  I don’t care who you are, if you’re not moved or well up at the end of the movie, I have doubts about you.  As I said earlier, Brave is a beautiful movie.  The music is beautiful.  Kelly Macdonald as the voice of Merida is great.  The problem is the story….too much time is spent with “my Mom is a bear” and that part drags.  This isn’t close…..Toy Story 3 gets the vote.

WINNER – Toy Story 3

Finding Nemo vs. Monsters, Inc.

I really like both of these movies.  Both are enjoyable and both are wonderfully done.  Great animation and great stories and plots.  This comes down to two characters Marlin from Finding Nemo and Boo from Monsters, Inc.  I’m not a fan of Albert Brooks and after awhile the Marlin character gets annoying.  Boo….is cute.  In fact, when my daughter was two or three we liked to call her Boo because she reminded us of the character.  Boo wins.

WINNER – Monsters, Inc.

Quarter Finals –

Toy Story vs. The Incredibles

Okay, I didn’t say much about Toy Story earlier because not much needed to be said.  Toy Story started it all.  We wouldn’t even be having this tournament if this movie hadn’t worked and been a success.  Twenty-two years later this movie still holds up.  Like the battle earlier with Toy Story 2The Incredibles is still a more fun movie for me.  I love both movies. Both movies are in my Top 5 of Pixar movies.  Elasti-Girl stretches for a photo finish here.

WINNER – The Incredibles

Inside Out vs. Ratatouille

As I mentioned earlier, I thought Inside Out was only an okay movie.  So it comes down to rats that Pixar made me care about or characters that they didn’t make me care about….rats win.

WINNER – Ratatouille

WALL-E vs. Up

Both of these movies are among my favorites of Pixar movies.  I just like WALL-E better.

WINNER – WALL-E

Toy Story 3 vs. Monsters, Inc.

Another match up of my Pixar favorites.  I will watch and have watched either of these movies when ever they’re on.  I really like both of them.  They are both well done.  The emotional ending of Toy Story 3 gives it the edge.

WINNER – Toy Story 3

Semi-Finals –

The Incredibles vs. Ratatouille

Have I mentioned how much I really like The Incredibles?  As mentioned earlier, I also really like Ratatouille but we’re talking Superheroes against a cooking rat.  Both really good movie, but Dash crosses the finish line first.

WINNER – The Incredibles

WALL-E vs. Toy Story 3

Both of these movies are great movies.  I’m not sure I can add much to what I’ve already said.  Robots vs. toys…..robots win.

WINNER – WALL-E

Final –

The Incredibles vs. WALL-E

Can we give the trophy to both?  No?  I seriously cannot wait until the sequel to The Incredibles comes out.  Why?  Because I love this movie.  I love the Parr family and I love the villains.  WALL-E is a great movie too, but when I’m looking for my super-suit because the world is in danger….I’m going with the supers.

CHAMPION – The Incredibles

I hope you enjoyed this tournament.  Now for my ranking of Pixar movies.  I will admit that after listening to the show and doing my own bracket the ranking of some of my movies have moved.  Please note (as mentioned above) I have not seen Coco, so it’s ranking is purely based on what I’ve read and heard.

PIXAR MOVIE RANKING –

  1. The Incredibles
  2. WALL-E
  3. Toy Story 3
  4. Toy Story
  5. Ratatouille
  6. Toy Story 2
  7. Up
  8. Coco
  9. Monsters, Inc.
  10. Cars
  11. Finding Nemo
  12. Cars 3
  13. Finding Dory
  14. Brave
  15. Monsters U
  16. The Good Dinosaur
  17. Inside Out
  18. A Bugs Life
  19. Cars 2

Listening to the show that this article has been based on was very thought provoking as was writing this article.  I really had to re-think about what I thought of the movies and how I had them ranked.  How do you have the Pixar movies ranked?  Did you do your own tournament?

That’s it for today.   See you next time.

Disney Announces Memorable New Story Elements that Add to the Fun at the Pixar Play Parade During Pixar Fest Celebration

Pixar Play Parade returns April 13 to the Disneyland Resort – this time, at Disneyland! Part of the limited-time Pixar Fest celebration, this delightful parade will bring even more of your favorite Pixar stories to life with the addition of three new story elements.

The parade will begin as all Pixar films have, with an appearance by the iconic and adorable Pixar Lamp. Rolling ahead of the famous lamp will be the familiar yellow Pixar Ball, making a cameo in Pixar Play Parade, as it has in many Pixar films.

Also joining the parade are characters from the beloved film, “Up.” Wilderness Explorer Russell will appear astride the colorful flightless bird, Kevin, with Carl Fredricksen and Dug following behind amid green foliage and snipe chicks, with Carl’s tethered house floating above.

Another popular Pixar story coming to Pixar Play Parade is “Inside Out.” Perched atop colorful memory orbs, Joy and Sadness take flight aboard Bing Bong’s rocket wagon, with Bing Bong himself cheering them on!

Don’t miss these new story elements and the return of Pixar Play Parade, beginning April 13 at Disneyland park.

Pixar’s ‘Coco’ Strums $2.3 Million on Tuesday Night

Disney-Pixar’s “Coco” has opened with a solid $2.3 million on Tuesday night.

The animated pic is on par with Disney’s “Moana,” which earned $2.6 million from previews during the same frame last year. It went on to gross $82 million over five days.

The family film has been on track to take in $55 million to $60 million at 3,948 venues during the Thanksgiving holiday period from Wednesday to Sunday. Estimates indicate that the costly “Justice League,” which has pulled in a disappointing $111.9 million in its first five days, will come in No. 1 again with about $60 million to $65 million.

“Coco” opens in nearly 2,800 3D locations, 106 premium large format screens, and 268 theaters offering the film in Spanish. Unlike “Justice League,” critics have embraced “Coco” (its Rotten Tomatoes score is currently 95%).

“Coco” is already a smash in Mexico with $48.8 million — the biggest opening of all time in that market — following its Oct. 20 premiere at the Morelia Film Festival. The central character, voiced by Anthony Gonzalez, is Miguel, a 12-year-old who dreams of becoming a musician. He meets Hector (Gael García Bernal) and sets off to explore his family history in the Land of the Dead.

Lee Unkrich (“Toy Story 3”) directed and Adrian Molina (story artist on “Monsters University”) co-directed the film. Other members of the voice cast include Ana Ofelia Murguía, Jaime Camil, Sofía Espinosa, Luis Valdez, Lombardo Boyar, Benjamin Bratt, Renée Victor, Edward James Olmos, Alanna Ubach, Selene Luna, Alfonso Arau, Herbert Siguenza, Octavio Solis, Gabriel Iglesias, Cheech Marin, and Blanca Araceli.

Disney-Pixar does not provide estimates of the production costs but industry sources say that the price tag is usually in the $175 million to $200 million range.

The Thanksgiving holiday period is prime time for moviegoing, particularly for opening Disney family titles. Disney’s “Frozen” set the record in 2013 with $93 million during the five days, followed by last year’s “Moana” with $82 million, “Toy Story 2” with $80 million, and “Tangled” with $68 million.

Lionsgate’s family drama “Wonder” will also be a factor. The Jacob Tremblay vehicle opened far above expectations with $27 million on its debut weekend and took in $5.7 million on Tuesday, up 44% from Monday, for a five-day total of  $37.2 million.

Disney Announces Release Dates for Frozen 2 and Live Action Lion King

The Walt Disney Studios has just updated its release schedule—which means it’s time for Disney fans to update their calendars!

Some release dates are simply worth melting for… Frozen 2 has been scheduled to open on November 27, 2019. Development of the sequel to the blockbuster film from Walt Disney Animation Studios was announced in March 2015, with the Oscar®-winning team of directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee and producer Peter Del Vecho returning to continue the adventures of the characters fans first fell in love with in 2012.

The Lion King, directed by Jon Favreau, will open in theaters on July 19, 2019. Actor James Earl Jones is reprising the role of Mufasa in the live-action reimagining of the Disney animated classic, and Donald Glover is voicing the adult Simba in the new film. The savanna and its amazing inhabitants will come to photorealistic life through technology that builds upon the innovative filmmaking audiences loved in Favreau’s adaptation of The Jungle Book.

Of course, those aren’t the only opening dates you’re going to want to circle in red. Take a look at this list for 2017 and 2018—and set those calendar alerts. There’s a lot of popcorn in your not-too-distant future, and there’s always room for surprises, too! Stay tuned to D23 for all of the updates about these films, and more to come in the future.
