    News Disney Has Purchased Approximately 235 Acres of Land

    How many unthemed low end Marriotts will that be able to hold?

    Star Wars Ep. 9 Thread

    Saw it. Kind of turned out more or less as I figured. It's a huge mess. It's probably the most nonsensical of the entire canon Star Wars franchise. It adds more crap to the already huge pile of nonsensical BS 7 and 8 started, and continues the sequel trilogy's habit of breaking the logical...

    Magic Kingdom 50th Anniversary Plans

    WDW's Big Thunder definitely hasn't received a full track replacement. And it has needed it badly for many years now. It will require a lengthy closure when they finally get to it. Probably comparable to the amount of time Disneyland's version did when it got a full track replacement, which was...

    Star Wars Ep. 9 Thread

    Luke isn't OP at all. Rey's feats of power in just Force Awakens rival or surpass what even ROTJ Luke accomplished. Let alone her insane power by the end of Last Jedi. In A New Hope, the only force powers Luke demonstrates are reflex or intuition based. Traits all force sensitive people...

    Star Wars Ep. 9 Thread

    When movies release early to a select few social media personalities and get unanimous positive praise, later to be largely reviled by the general public upon its official release, it's reasonable to be suspicious. I don't believe average joes who do legitimately enjoy these movies are shills...

    Star Wars Ep. 9 Thread

    The plot leaks were confirmed back when first real trailer released in August. Each subsequent trailer, clip, commercial etc has only further confirmed their authenticity. So far "impressions" seem to be a mixture of mostly good to amazing, with a few outliers saying it's mixed. Not many...

    Universal's Epic Universe (South Expansion Complex Opens 2023)

    When playing the games, I definitely prefer the Kremlings. They're way cooler enemies IMO. Also prefer the darker atmosphere of the SNES trilogy too. I'm not quite as picky about which characters they go with in the land itself, though would have preferred the Kremlings. It was most important...

    Universal's Epic Universe (South Expansion Complex Opens 2023)

    Officially there hasn't been any confirmation. But my advice is not to get your hopes up for the Kremlings if you were hoping they'd appear. It is very obvious that the DK area is themed around the Returns and Tropical Freeze games specifically. The original piece of concept art released back...

    Fiber optic sidewalk

    Sad to hear they might be removed, always thought they were a cool touch. I doubt they'll be "moved" either, I would assume they're sort of embedded into the concrete and would be relatively difficult to transplant intact if ripped up. I actually think fiber optic sidewalks would have been a...

    Star Wars Ep. 9 Thread

    I never said everything in these videos is always 100% false. There has to be some grain truth or believability to act as bait for these videos. I'm simply pointing out that there's an agenda (sometimes hidden, other times in plain sight) that generally drives most of these Star Wars drama...

    Star Wars Ep. 9 Thread

    Look, as pessimistic as I am of this film, it's important to temper your negativity and not jump on board with random people on youtube commenting on wild speculation. Just know that a lot of these types of videos are just completely unfounded clickbait. For example, back when Last Jedi was in...

    Star Wars Ep. 9 Thread

    I've actually been extremely disappointed in the music of the sequel trilogy. The returning stuff from the originals is nice, but most of the original tunes are bland. The only pieces i've liked are the Jedi Steps and Rey's theme from TFA. But nothing can beat the scores from Episodes 4, 5...

    Star Wars Ep. 9 Thread

    If you read the same leaks I did, you'll be able to spot some shared details in the final trailer that confirm the leak's authenticity. Despite the trailer doing its best to be as vague as possible, there are quite a few scenes that verify it.

    Star Wars Ep. 9 Thread

    Ironically there are a handful of Star Wars video game stories that (in spite of having certain quirks inherent to the medium of gaming) have far more compelling base plots and characters than the sequel trilogy does. The two Knights of the Old Republic games are the prime examples. KOTOR 2 in...

    Insider info/ AMA on WDW's 50th Ann.

    That doesn't even make any sense given the fact that the Osborne Lights didn't originate on the Streets of America. When the display debuted at Hollywood Studios (then MGM Studios) back in 1995, the lights were displayed in the Residential Street of the Backlot Tour (adorning all the houses...

    I assume so. Don't know how much screen time he will get, but he allegedly has a fairly important role in the plot (much more than he usually has). I don't have a ton of interest in this movie. The trailer just looks okay, and the leaked plot outline is very hit or miss. Some things sound...

    Star Wars Ep. 9 Thread

    NOTE- There were leaked plot outlines posted online within the past couple of weeks, and the trailer appears to contain a handful of details that confirm their authenticity. So beware where you go online if you want to avoid spoilers going into this movie.

    Great article by Robert Iger in Vanity Fair

    I wasn't disagreeing that the film division was seriously struggling after Walt's death throughout the 70s and 80s. My disagreement was in regards to the reason it was suffering. The primary reason why Disney movies began to struggle in this Walt-less era is simply because they weren't as good...

    Great article by Robert Iger in Vanity Fair

    I liked this post because I agree with most of it. However, I disagree with the premise of the last two sentences of the first paragraph. With the exception of Bedknobs and Broomsticks (which IS a fantastic movie that didn't receive the financial success it rightly deserved and earned when first...
