Steve Dobbs may be a 68-year-old grandfather, but really he’s just a big kid at heart. Dobbs built what he calls “Dobbsland” for his grandkids in the backyard of his Fullerton, California home.

Being that he has a background in aerospace engineering, Dobbs was able to build all sorts of fun attractions on his own, including a mini-rollercoaster!

Take a closer look at his creation in the video below. [click to continue…]

Disney announced the news that Wreck-It-Ralph is getting a sequel via Facebook Live with directors Rich Moore and Phil Johnston along with Ralph himself, John C. Reilly.

The sequel to Wreck-It Ralph will arrive in theaters on March 9, 2018 and both Reilly and Sarah Silverman (Vanellope) are returning. There’s not a lot of detail on the plot, but it looks like Ralph and Vanellope are set to outdo Kim Kardashian and actually break the Internet.

You can check out an interview with Reilly, Johnson and Moore over at Oh My Disney to get a few more tidbits on the sequel.

Sometimes you see a toy and you think, “Huh. I’m not sure that needs to exist.” This is not one of those toys.

Call it Voltron, call it a Megazord, call it whatever you like – this Toy Story “Chogokin combiner” from Tamashii Nations takes several of the classic toys from Andy’s toy chest and turns them into robots which combine to form one 9″-tall mega-awesome cowboy-themed robot-y thing. What do the individual toys turn into? I’m very glad you asked – nothing. But their combined form looks incredibly cool.

The set drops in Japan this November, priced at $169.99. The set will eventually make its way to the US, though that’ll likely come with a higher price tag. Tamashii Nations have also hinted at a second model based on Buzz Lightyear possibly coming at some point in the future.

The Shanghai Disney Resort will have its grand opening on June 16th, but it’s had a few soft openings recently, and visitors have had the chance to check out some of the park’s awesome rides (like the Tron Light Cycle Power Run we mentioned yesterday).

As you’ll see in the full ride video below, the “Pirates of the Caribbean: Battle for the Sunken Treasure” ride is a major upgrade from the classic Pirates attraction at California’s Disneyland. I mean, there’s a flippin’ Kraken for crying out loud!

I’m sure you’ve been wondering when the Internet would get around to portraying Disney Princesses as Wookiees, given the fact that they’ve been portrayed as literally everything else.

Well, the time has come.
