Zenon Girl of the 21st Century!

Zetus Lapetus! 20 years ago on this day Jan 23 1999, Zenon: Girl of the 21’st century came out on Disney Channel. The film is about a mischievous 13 year old girl who grapples with gravity, earth culture and villain intent on destroying her space station home.

The movie stars Kristen Storms, Raven-Symoné, Bob Bancroft and so many more amazing actors and actresses. This was one of my favorite movies growing up  along with the other two movies Zenon: The Zequel and Zenon: Z3.

Pirates of the Caribbean Reboot!?

Rumor has it that Pirates of the Caribbean will have a reboot replacing everyone’s favorite pirate Captain Jack Sparrow with the new and improved red head Redd the revamped character from the Disney attraction Pirates of the Caribbean. Redd used to be auctioned off to the pirates and they would say “we wants the redhead” but with the update, she is a fierce pirate named Redd. For the possible reboot of Pirates Redd travels through various ports selling rum and collecting money.

Although there is no script Disney has had an early talk with Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick the screenwriters of Deadpool and Zombieland about writing the reboot of Pirates. Honestly, I hope they pick up where they left off because the last one was left on a cliffhanger and I don’t think it will be as good without Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow but it is also Disney so no matter what I am going to give it a chance, even though I would really like to find out what happened with Henry Turner and Carina Smith along with Elizabeth Swann and Will Turner. What are your thoughts on this rumor? Let me know in the comments below!

High School Musical 4: The TV Show?!

Yes you read correctly, the newest High school Musical will be a docu- style series that will consist of 10 episodes following 8 new main characters. We can expect some original High School musical songs from the OG movie with a bit of a rendition, along with some new originals from High School Musical: The Musical.

Just like the original three HSM, there will be a winter musiCAL! Emphasis on the cal intended. Heres where things get a bit more interesting the musical the students will be performing is High School Musical. The executive producer of the film is Tim Federle and Oliver Goldstick, while Julie Ashton is on the hunt for the cast. It seems like Kenny Ortega will not be returning for the 4th HSM movie and I think its kind of sad if he doesn’t because he directed the other three films.

What are your thoughts on High School Musical: The Musical? Let me know your thoughts.

Bambi’s 75th Anniversary

August 21, 1942, Bambi, the story of a young deer growing up in the forest was released. It was directed by James Algar, Samuel Armstrong, written by Felix Salten, Perce Pearce with the runtime of 70 minutes.

It was the first and one of the first features where the songs were not sung by any of the films characters. Each song was either sung off screen by a soloist or a choir.

“Man” was ranked the #20 villain on the American Film institutes of the 100 greatest heroes and villains. It’s also the only character not to appear on screen.

Tyrus Wong, a Chinese animator whose sketches used a soft background inspired the look of the film.

bambi-ss1.jpgThere are approximately only 1,000 words throughout the entire film. Some scenes of the woodland creatures and forest fires are unused footage from Pinocchio (1940).

I also love the movie so much that I named my first dog Bambi, he unfortunately passed away BUT I have a lot of great memories when I watch the movie!

Happy Anniversary Bambi!

DCOM Freaky Friday Review!

Tonight was the premier of the newest Disney Channel Original Movie Freaky Friday. I thought it was going to just be a remake of the 2003 Freaky Friday starring Lindsey Lohan and Jamie Lee Curtis, but to my surprise it wasn’t. The only thing that was similar was the storyline, mother and daughter don’t see eye to eye and they change bodies and have to figure out how to get back to their own body.

The one with Lindsey Lohan, Anna (Lindsey’s character) wants to perform with her band even though her mom is getting married. In the new one the daughter Ellie wants to go to The Hunt with her friends and her mom is under stress from planning and catering her own wedding so she can get on the cover of a magazine to promote her business.

Now the 2003 version wasn’t a musical (incase you haven’t seen it), but the 2018 DCOM version was a full on musical and I don’t know how I feel about it. It was cute, but I don’t think I want to watch it again. I did however buy it on iTunes because I want to grow my DCOM collection. Maybe I’m just judging it way to hard because I prefer the 2003 version, I don’t know but I am going to try and watch it again and really keep an open mind about it. What are your thoughts if you watched it?

There is no release date still but the Hocus Pocus and the All New Sequel has arrived July 10 but it didn’t feel right to buy it then, It felt right to buy it today July 16 in honor of the films 25 anniversary.

Maleficent 2?

Maleficent Sequel has been rumored for over a year now but has started production. Angelina Jolie and Elle Faning will reprise their roles as Maleficent and Aurora along with Joe Roth returning as producer. Joachim Ronning is rumored to be the director in the second film. Also, Michelle Pfeiffer will be taking the role of the Queen Ingrith.

The sequel is rumored to take place a couple of years after the first film’s events. It will follow Maleficent and Aurora as they will work together to protect the realm and all the creatures that live in it. I won’t lie, I am kind of nervous about the sequel. I honestly thought the first movie was amazing and covered EVERYTHING so as much as I am nervous I am pretty excited to see how the second movie turns out. What are your thoughts?
