In this edition of Theme Park Bits: The Disney princesses have an exciting (and expensive) new character-breakfast home at the Disneyland Resort. New details about the Jurassic World-themed water attraction have emerged. Heimlich’s Chew Chew Train has a new resting place after having been shut down. And more! As you probably know, last year, the Disneyland Resort introduced a brand-new area to Disney California Adventure. Pixar Pier, the re-themed version of Paradise Pier, has largely been a success, but in redesigning the area, the Imagineers removed a character-dining option. Previously, the pier’s flagship restaurant was Ariel’s Grotto, at which you could meet the Disney princesses like Ariel, Belle, and more. But the arrival of Pixar meant that, yes, they were booting out your beloved princesses. (Just imagine Sheriff Woody as the vicious landlord kicking Ariel and friends to the curb.) So, for about nine months, there hasn’t been a character-dining … [Read more...] about Theme Park Bits: A New Character Breakfast in Disneyland, the New Home for an Old Pixar Ride, and More! – /Film

By Stephen Schaefer | PUBLISHED: February 1, 2019 at 11:33 am | UPDATED: February 1, 2019 at 11:34 am When Yorgos Lanthimos’ “The Favourite” had its Venice Film Festival world premiere last August, I wrote that it was certain to get Oscar nominations for its three starring females: *Emma Stone, whose character makes the journey from country mouse to become a formidable Royal to the Queen, *Olivia Colman as the gout-ridden, neurotic Queen Anne with her bunnies and *Rachel Weisz whose powerful position as the Queen’s confidant and administrator is ruined by the political plotting and lovemaking of her rival. Naturally it was Stone who would be in the Best Actress category while Colman and Weisz competed with each other in the Supporting Actress category. But overwhelming, rhapsodic critical praise greeted Colman’s funny-tragic-sad-pathetic Queen and someone at Fox Searchlight decided Colman, despite her relatively few scenes and not being the engine … [Read more...] about Hollywood & Mine: ‘The Favourite’ – A risky Oscar gamble?
A TALE of how quickly fortunes can change in showbiz, A Star Is Born is tipped to put Oscars in the hands of leads Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper. But behind the rave reviews for this latest remake of the classic movie lies a sinister story that could taint its chances of glory. Hairdresser turned multi-millionaire movie bigwig Jon Peters — who helped get the film made — has been battered by a string of sexual assault and bullying claims. Allegations include that he grabbed the breasts of two assistants and flashed his private parts at a three-year-old girl while saying: “Look what boys have.” Years before Hollywood’s Harvey Weinstein scandal, which led to the #MeToo movement, five private law suits were launched against Peters for mistreating staff. In one it was claimed he had tried to force a female employee into bed while he was naked and offered her money when she refused his sexual advances. Producer Peters, 73, who helped to make Batman, Rain Man, … [Read more...] about From flashing a three-year-old to £2m sex-pest payout, the man behind A Star is Born starring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga could derail Oscar glory
16 minutes ago Walt Disney World is getting ready to open up its next big expansion, dedicated to the world of Toy Story. While the new Toy Story Land won't be quite as big as when Star Wars Galaxy's Edge opens next year, it will certainly bring a lot more guests back to Disney's Hollywood Studios. Here's everything you'll need to know when the new area opens in just over a month. First and foremost, you need to know when it opens, which will be June 30, 2018. The new land is part of Disney's Hollywood Studios and has been built on the west side of the park, adjacent, fittingly, to the existing Pixar Place region. That area will be going away as one of the changes that will be taking place is that the existing Toy Story attraction in the park, Toy Story Mania, will have a brand new entrance once Toy Story Land opens so the Pixar Place walkway will be redundant. Toy Story Land takes up 11 acres of space and the entire thing is themed to feel like you've been shrunken down to … [Read more...] about Hollywood Studios’ Toy Story Land, What We Know About The New Park Addition
