The Mouse Castle

A little bit of news, a little bit of history, a whole lot of Disney.

  1. 'Tangled' World Premiere in Hollywood

    by , 11-20-2010 at 05:40 PM (The Mouse Castle)
    I cobbled together some media footage from last weekend's premiere of Tangled at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood. This is somewhat of an experiment as I don't do a lot of video editing, but I liked the results and hope you do too. My apologies in advance for the murky voice over. I'm working on a microphone upgrade as we speak.

    This week, Disney released a new trailer and stills for next year's [I]Winnie the Pooh[/I] film coming out on July 15. Fans of the original shorts [I]Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree[/I] and [I]Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day[/I] are going to love the look of the new Pooh movie, which recreates the simple hand-drawn animation and lush watercolor backgrounds ...
  3. The Legacy of 'Tron'

    by , 10-31-2010 at 11:21 AM (The Mouse Castle)
    OK, let's be honest here. [I]Tron[/I] was never a great movie.

    Visually stunning for its time, yes, but not much else. The story had something to do with a video game geek (Jeff Bridges) getting back the game programs that the evil corporate hot shot (David Warner) stole from him. The game geek hangs out with the computer geek (Bruce Boxleitner) and the lab geek (the hot chick from Caddyshack). Lame dialog, trite storyline. The game geek gets zapped into a computer grid. Complications ...

  4. Remembering a Legend: Ollie Johnston

    by , 10-31-2010 at 07:12 AM (The Mouse Castle)
    Disney Legend Ollie Johnston was born today in 1912.

    A master of personality animation, Johnston grew up in Northern California, studied art at Stanford and later attended the Chouinard Art Institute in Los Angeles. In those early days, animation interested him, but he was never truly inspired by its potential until he saw Disney's 1934 Pluto cartoon [I]Playful Pluto[/I].

  5. The Walt Disney Family Museum: One Year Later

    by , 10-26-2010 at 05:59 AM (The Mouse Castle)
    Walt Disney famously said, "Disneyland will never be completed as long as there is imagination left in the world." In San Francisco, the Walt Disney Family Museum is taking a similar approach. It continually tweaks things--adding additional seating here, moving a display there--to improve the appearance and flow of the ten galleries that trace Walt's life from his humble Midwest beginnings to his perch atop an entertainment empire. "We've done a few very minor changes," says ...
