A Disney cruise ship called the Disney Dream has a new play area that’s designed to look like the interior of the Millennium Falcon. The play area, which members of Disney’s Oceaneer Club can access (ages 3-12), allows guests to pretend that they’re actually everyone’s favorite scruffy smuggler. From the press release:

Kids will be transported to a far away galaxy at Star Wars: Millennium Falcon, a Force-filled play area inspired by the spacecraft from the legendary saga. Upon entering the spaceship, younglings will join the Rebel Alliance in the epic battle of good versus evil by assisting with the navigation of this powerful space vehicle. Sitting in the cockpit, children can pilot this super-cool spaceship through hyperspace and trigger lightspeed jumps to different locations around the galaxy.

But the upgrades don’t stop there. The Disney Dream will also add the Jedi Training Academy experience, which includes Star Wars-themed games, crafts and activities.

The new features are expected to debut after the Disney Dream undergoes dry dock Oct. 4-24, 2015, in Freeport, Bahamas.

Ash vs Evil Dead

Five days into filming for the new Starz show Ash Vs. Evil Dead, we got an exclusive look into the highly anticipated continuation of the cult classic franchise.

We had the honor of being among a select group of media outlets to speak to writer and creator Sam Raimi, Ash himself (Bruce Campbell), and executive producer Robert Tapert to get more insight on what fans can expect.

As you probably know, the beloved film saga turned television series picks up Ash’s story 30 years after his battles with the Deadites. He’s described as a shell of a man who has spent the last few decades “avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the Evil Dead”. That is, until evil once again threatens mankind and he is forced to face his demons – “personal and literal”.

How will the show blend comedy and horror? Why are the Deadites back? Where has his boomstick been all this time? And what’s the deal with Lucy Lawless’ character?

Check out the drool-worthy answers to these questions and more after the break.

spiderman animated

Sony has announced that Spider-Man will hit theaters in animated form in 2018 with Phil Miller and Chris Lord (The LEGO Movie) at the helm.

As you probably know, Spider-Man’s next film appearance will be for Marvel in Captain America: Civil War which drops in May of 2016. However, the press release below notes that the animated movie will “exist independently” of the live-action projects.

On July 20, 2018, Phil Lord & Christopher Miller the directors of The Lego Movie, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, and 21 and 22 Jump Street, are taking Spider-Man back to his graphic roots with the first-of-its-kind animated Spider-Man feature, it was announced today at CinemaCon by Tom Rothman, chairman of the Sony Pictures Entertainment Motion Picture Group. The film will exist independently of the projects in the live-action Spider-Man universe, all of which are continuing.

Lord & Miller are masterminding the project, writing the treatment and producing the film.

As previously announced, Spider-Man will next appear in a live-action Marvel film from Marvel’s Cinematic Universe (MCU). Sony Pictures will thereafter release the next installment of its $4 billion Spider-Man franchise, on July 28, 2017, a live-action film being produced by Kevin Feige at Marvel and Amy Pascal, who oversaw the franchise launch for the studio 13 years ago. The animated film from Lord & Miller, dated July 20, 2018, has Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach, and Pascal also serving as producers.
