totoro ride

Disney artist and theme park designer John Ramirez has a great love of Studio Ghibli, which led him to create this design for a Totoro ride.

So it isn’t official…but it’s close.

Speaking to Kotaku, Ramirez said he’s talked to Hayao Miyazaki a number of times about the possibility of Disney building this ride. Each time he has been turned down, but he promises that he will keep asking “until they bar me from the studio or until he says yes!”.

Here’s hoping! Take a closer look at the ride below (click to enlarge).

Disney fans can be fanatical about the theme parks, but one fan took his love to the next level. While you or I might struggle to get through the Magic Kingdom in one day, park lover Christopher Wing visited every Disney theme park on the planet in just 75 hours.

Kicking off his journey on Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride at Disneyland, Wing booked it for the red-eye flight to Walt Disney World in Florida, before taking off for the parks overseas.

Check out his entire journey below.

BIG HERO 6

Great news for Big Hero 6 fans. Baymax will be back as your favorite personal healthcare companion as part of a new weekly series for Disney XD. The show, which will debut sometime in 2017, will pick up where the movie left off following the adventures of Hiro, Baymax, Go Go, Wasabi, Honey Lemon, and Fred. From Entertainment Weekly:

Hiro, now something of a legend at the San Fransokyo Institute of Technology, will face “daunting academic challenges and the social trials of being the little man on campus. Off campus, the stakes are raised for the high-tech heroes as they must protect their city from an array of scientifically enhanced villains.”

Honestly, if it was just Baymax, I’d be there. Because Baymax is…well, Baymax!

In case you haven’t noticed, Disney Princesses really stoke the imagination of artists online. Over the years we’ve seen them reinterpreted as Jedi, velociraptors and, inexplicably, cement mixers. So it’s somewhat refreshing to see the characters in their original forms, albeit interpreted in an entirely new art style.

So when we saw that an artist, going only by the name of Maryam, had posted a gallery of portraits depicting Disney Princesses in an anime style we thought they were definitely worth sharing.

Check out Maryam’s awesome artwork below.

Artist Phill Berry isn’t the first to imagine Disney Princesses as Jedi and I’m sure he won’t be the last, but his unique style and take on the idea is what makes us see each Princess in an exciting new light.

Ariel’s legs may be my favorite touch. See more examples below.

disney native

YouTuber Movie Munchies has collected clips of Disney princesses and altered them so you can experience what the songs are like in the native or source language of each princess. So, Belle sings in French, Mulan sings in Chinese, Megara in Greek, etc.

I’ve discovered a couple of things watching these two videos Movie Munchies put together: 1) Any Disney song sounds dreamier in French and 2) Meg in Greek is kinda rockin’.

Check out the videos below.
