Virtual Disneyland for Kinect

Monday, June 13th, 2011

People love virtual realities. Disney fans already had some great virtual Disney world, just look at the success of Virtual Magic Kingdom. This game was launched back on May 23th 2005 and was a fan favorite until its closure on April 7th 2008. Guest could walk around the park, play mini games, collect pins or badges and buy clothing among other fun things.

Now Disney is bringing it to a whole new level. On the Electronic Entertainment Expo or E3, the biggest annual show for computer and video games, Disney announced their new game for the fantastic Xbox 360 Kinect platform. Disney will release Disneyland Adventures, a new game set in a virtual Disneyland where guests can walk around and discover the park, meet characters and enjoy mini games hidden behind the attraction entrances.

Have a look below at the first trailer of this new game.

Looks like fun and another reason to get the Kinect (if like me, you didn’t own one yet)…

Exclusive Hidden Cars II Clip

Monday, April 4th, 2011

During the WonderCon convention guest had the chance to go home and discover a nice special clip from the new Cars II movie. All they had to do is spot a parked car with the twitter handler @ChromeLeaks on it, visit the twitter account and follow the link to Cars-N-Deals.com where they would see a hoax car advertisement that had a hidden URL (chromeA113.com) in it. This URL gets you to the exclusive clip. No worries though. You don’t have to do anything as we added the clip here…

The Artists of Tangled

Tuesday, October 12th, 2010

The big news earlier today regarding the upcoming animated Disney feature TANGLED was the release of the latest trailer (which turned out to be rather funny if you ask me) but what maybe should have been the bigger news – at least among those of us who are really interested in the hard work that goes into making such a feature and the artists involved in it – is another youtube video that was released today outside the official Disney channels: a look at the artists that created / are still busy creating the magic of TANGLED:

Take the 6 1/2 minutes and enjoy this look at the artists behind the scenes… it’s  no “making-off” or documentary and neither is it a trailer or sneek peek – just a fun opportunity to go face to face with the artists respectively a chance to finally add a face to some of the names from those end credits… (more…)

Normally Andy is our resident Comic-Con and TRON expert but just for once I’ll have to honor to forward the latest about the upcoming “TRON” movie to you, opening on the big screen (which is really big this time, as the movie will be presented not only on regular 3D screens but also IMAX 3D screens) in the US on December 17. So here we go…

Tron Legacy Trailer

Wednesday, March 10th, 2010

The Tron Legacy trailer is available online and it looks great! You can watch a HD version via this link or you can visit the official Disney Tron site. While it did give me chills down my spine (I love Tron), I do have some doubts about the story set up. How is it possible the arcade was there filled with the games after all these years, how come electricity is still working and what about that hidden room? How come nobody noticed the room before and how is all the equipment still there… and working. Still, to give it the benefit of the doubt, and the fact that I am a big Tron fan, I’m sure there will be a good explanation and enough good stuff to make this movie ROCK!

Tron Legacy will be release on December 17 2010 in 3D.

The Walt Disney Studios has released a first trailer of the modern view of the Sorcerer’s Apprentice, a movie with Nicolas Case as the master sorcerer Balthazar Blake.

But the trailer just showed me not to be and that I want to see this movie on the big screen. It looks amazing! Don’t believe me? Have a look for yourself…

The Sorcerer’s Apprentice staring Nicolas Cage, Jay Baruchel, Alfred Molina, Teresa Palmer, Monica Bellucci, Toby Kebbell and directed by Jon Turteltaub will be in theaters: July 16, 2010
