disney princess raptors 011

Laura Cooper of the XP webcomic knows that the Disney mashup hungry world needed Disney Princesses as velociraptors. As she explains, “In honor of the movie Jurassic World, I decided to illustrate some raptors the way I feel they should be portrayed; as princesses.”

Check out the awesomeness after the break.

The old Maelstrom ride at Epcot in Walt Disney World is being replaced by Frozen Ever After next year, and Disney has released the first details about the ride. It will be set in Arendelle during summer with Olaf and Sven preparing for a Winter Festival. Guests will see the trolls and hear the story of Anna and Kristof’s first meeting. Naturally, it will all end with Elsa singing Let it Go from her ice castle balcony.

Get a full breakdown of the ride in the video after the break…

Tomorrowland George Clooney

It took about two seconds for Tomorrowland to fall flat on its face. The movie opens with Old Man Clooney (his character’s name is Frank Walker, but he’s Old Man Clooney to me) bickering with young ‘n’ peppy Casey (Britt Robertson) about the best way to tell their story to a yet-unspecified audience. Old Man C-Dawg is gloom and doom. Casey is an optimist and a dreamer. Which worldview will reign supreme?

Minor spoilers follow.

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.

disney-3d-printer

Okay so maybe this isn’t the exact bunny you want to cuddle with, but it represents the first step towards the ability to 3D print plush toys. The printer was developed by Disney’s research lab and it uses an adhesive felt material which is heated as each layer is drawn. The printer works layer-by-layer, trimming fabric in each layer as it goes. When the extra fabric is peeled away, the result is a carved out-looking bunny, but it is soft and squishy.

Of course, Disney still has a long way to go in development, but their innovation is not just for making huggable toys. The research team explained that these printers can use two fabrics in one job, and is capable of integrating conductive materials (like wiring) into the sheets, which gives this device a much broader range of applications.

alice-in-wonderland-doorknob

This hand sculpted door knob looks just like the one from Alice In Wonderland, and you won’t have to drink any potions to use it. Etsy shop Pop Sculptor custom sculpts, hand molds, and paints this limited edition Disney-themed decor. The sculpt comes in two pieces, plus the doorknob and hardware.

With such expression, this one of a kind decorative door knob would be perfect for a kids room or movie room.

cinderella-600x382

I was never much of a Disney princess person. My favorites from the Mouse House were more along the lines of Aladdin and The Lion King than Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, and Sleeping Beauty. This isn’t one of those horribly misogynistic Not Like Those Other Girls rants–“Disney princesses are for girly girls who only care about dresses and makeup and hair, ewwwwwww“–just a simple statement of where I was coming from when I went to a screening of Disney’s live-action Cinderella, directed by Kenneth Branagh and starring IRL Disney princess Lily James. The story of Cinderella, my inner child told me, is OK if you’ve misplaced your Mulan* VHS, but it’s kind of bland and, really, I’m only watching for Gus Gus.**

Thank you, Cinderella, for opening my eyes. Spoilers follow…
