If you have been following this site for a while, you’ll know that your good ol’ friend Dalin has been a bit obsessed with a certain Disney release coming in March 17th of next year.

With the release of Moana shortly, it makes sense that the House of Mouse finally gave this Movie Princess what she wanted. And it truly is a dream come true.

Disney’s Elena of Avalor: Why This Princess/New Show Looks Awesome

With a mostly “Snow White” history, Disney has not exactly been known as the most diverse company when it comes to media representation. But thankfully in the last 20 or so years, things have been slowly changing for the better – with the introduction of Jasmine, Pocahontas, Mulan, and most recently, Tiana – the lineup of Disney Princesses is starting to look a bit more colorful. But many people have wondered, where is the Latin representation? Well, with the help of Elena of Avalor, Disney hopes to answer that question. And below are the reasons why I think she (and her show) is gonna be pretty dang cool.

“Something There” – A Personal Celebration of Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast”

Something very special occurred in November of 1991. Although I can’t remember that period for myself–being exactly 1 year old at the time–a movie came out that changed my life forever.  It told a story that was “as old as time,” and featured a collection of characters, songs, sights, and sounds, that would take a permanent residence in my heart and shape me into the person I am today. And it just so happens that the movie in question is celebrating its 25th anniversary. I’m talking about Disney’s Beauty and the Beast.

“We Are All Animals” – “Zootopia” Movie Review

Some of you might have watched the 2016 Oscars, during which Chris Rock asked some very important questions of the film industry and their dealings with a difficult topic that must be addressed: prejudice. Ironically, one of the movies that will be arriving into theaters this weekend handles the subject of the issue and how to fix it, in such a simple way, that it is hard to think of any other film before that has gotten it this right. Oh, and it stars a bunny and a fox. Meet Disney Animation’s Zootopia, directed by Bryon Howard, Rich Moore and Jared Bush, featuring the voices of Ginnifer Goodwin and Jason Bateman.
