Hocus Pocus Remake! 

Disney Channel is working on an all-new version of a classic Halloween film that starred Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and the lovely Kathy Najimy. A rumor that’s been going on for years, confirmed by a spokesperson from Disney channel. A new iteration is in development with a script from Scarlet Lacey(The Royals). David Kirshner, the producer of the original Hocus Pocus, is on board as the executive producer. While there is no word about Kenny Ortega taking his rightful place as the director, I hope he comes back to work his magic!

The remake will be DCOM like how the original was supposed to be. Unfortunately, this new DCOM will not have any of the original cast members. The question is, are you on board for a remake of this classic fan favorite? Or would you rather have a sequel with the original Sanderson sister as they return after another 300 years from a virgin lighting the black flame candle? Let me know in the comments below!

Disness: Pinocchio!

Pinocchio is the second animated film released by Disney in 1940. It’s a story about a living puppet who has to prove himself worthy to become a real boy with the help of his conscience, name Jiminy Cricket. The film is 1 hour and 28 minutes long and based off of the Italian book The Adventures of Pinocchio written by Carlo Collodi in 1883.

md16816927669For people to root for Pinocchio, they drew him as a real boy and added the nuts and bolts to make him a puppet. Disney also changed up the story a bit but also stayed true to the book. For instance, there was a cricket in the original story, but Pinocchio smooshed him with a hammer, and the cricket returned as a ghost whereas in Disney’s version Jiminy is Pinocchio’s conscience and doesn’t get smooshed by a hammer.

giphyWhen I think of Pinocchio, I think two things; the art and of course the song “When You Wish Upon A Star.” When I watch the movie, you can see a lot of small detail that makes Pinocchio stand out from the others, for example when you are watching all the cuckoo clocks for Geppetto’s shop are based on working models built as guides for the animators. Not only that but if you look to the left of the screen when the spotlight hits Jiminy as he is singing ‘When You Wish Upon A Star” you can see two books behind him titled: Alice in Wonderland (1951) and Peter Pan (1953).

4AcN2fcIt was the first animated movie EVER to win an Academy Award in a competitive category. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs won an Honorary Academy for being the first ever animated film. Pinocchio was also the first ever film (animated or not) to win an Academy Award for best Score and best Song; this wouldn’t happen again until 1964 with Mary Poppins.

51pMZfQET3L._SY445_Unfortunately, the movie didn’t succeed in its initial theatric run due to many different war efforts going on in Europe and Asia, but it made its money back in 1945 when it was re-released. Pinocchio was the first Disney film to release on DVD, plus this Disney classic was re-released several times in theater from the initially released date to 1992.

Cleo-and-Figaro-Pinocchio-1Pinocchio is one of my favorite because I love the Blue Fairy, Figaro and of course Cleo. The movie implanted in my brain to always let my conscience be my guide which I use in everyday life. What is your favorite thing about this Disney classic? Let me know in the comments below!

Disney Movie Facts!

I am completely obsessed with Disney movies so i thought it would be fun to share some fun facts about some Disney/Pixar movies! So lets get started!

At a point in Ratatouille’s development, Remy had a mother named Desiree.

All the child screams in Monsters Inc. were supplied by the animators kids.

For Cars, the filmmakers brought in a broadcast sports director to help advise the racing scenes.

Before Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was completed, 750 artists drew more than two million sketches, the movie ultimately contained more than 250,000 separate pictures.

The women in the ink and paint department applied real makeup to cels of the Snow White to give her more of a rosy complexion.

After Purdom left Beauty and the Beast, screenwriter Linda Woolverton was hired to rewrite the script. Her only writing experience had been writing  a few episodes of Disney’s Chip ‘n’ Dale Rescue rangers.

Nana was originally suppose to travel to Neverland with the children.

Lilo & Stitch was the first animated film since Dumbo to use watercolor painted backgrounds.

My favorite Disney movie fact on this list has to be that at a point Remy had a mother named Desiree, which i find pretty awesome because Desiree is my name! What is your favorite Disney Movie Fact? Let me know in the comments below!

Newsies on Broadway!

My dreams have finally come true!!! I FINALLY get to see Newsies on broadway…sort of.

newsies-logo

Lets start from the beginning, I bought my mom and i tickets when it came to San Francisco…unfortunately we both got very caught up with work and completely missed the show…it killed me. Than, we purchased tickets to see it when it came to theaters and to no surprise we missed that too.

newsies_main

It honestly killed me, and still till this day i am very upset that we missed Newsies on broadway…the only thing i didn’t miss was purchasing the Broadway version of newsies on iTunes and well its has not left my TV and i completely beat myself up for not seeing it  when i had the chance.

51JN182SCXL

The production is absolutely AMAZING! I loved it and fell in love with the songs even more than when i first heard the album. Although it is slightly different than the movie, i honestly can’t compare the two because they are both so unique and magical in their own ways i personally can’t compare the two.

What are your thoughts on Newsies on Broadway? Let me know in the comments below.
