Animal Kingdom is busy constructing its newest expansion of land and E-Ticket or F-Ticket attractions based upon James Cameron’s Avatar. No official name has been given but it is simply referred to as Avatar Land or Pandora Land.

Though Disney hasn’t officially announced this, it stands to reason after the recent remodel of the Disney Magic that Disney will do the same thing to the Wonder, it is only a matter of time before they announce the changes to the Disney Wonder.

Walt Disney World resort is still constructing their newest hotel the Four Seasons, no finish date has been given thus far.


This sitcom is a retro show that takes place in the 90’s.  Really am I that old that the 90’s are considered retro.  It is a sitcom entitled Fresh off the Boat and takes place in Orlando.

Now this one sounds interesting, it is a Musical revue show that will appear on ABC this fall, entitled Galavant and takes place in Fairy Tale times but not associated with Once Upon a Time in any way.  It also has Timothy Odumndson, who can’t be excited.  The Leprechaun returns to Disney.

Another project that I am hoping is still in the works is The Haunted Mansion that Guillermo del Toro is making, at the moment no word yet on how far this project has come.


ABC is also coming out with a brand new series called How to Get Away with Murder a drama that will be part of the Fall 2014 Lineup.

An animated series that is a spin-off of The Lion King is in the works called The Lion Guard.


I’ll be honest, when I first saw this picture, I thought someone was doing it as a joke.  You know, like they were making fun of a Football player.  I was shocked when Disney actually announced on their blog it was real.

The Magician from Marvel is getting a movie and below is the picture of the person they have hired to help them, named Derek DelGaudio.

Disney is working on its three spin off Star Wars movies in edition to episodes 7, 8 and 9.  These are not confirmed the plots, but examples of these plots would be about Yoda’s life before the movies, Han Solo before we see him in Episode 4 and Bobba Fett what happens to him after Clone Wars and before Empire Strikes Back.  As I said they could be anything, but one confirmation is that Gareth Edwards, the director of the recently released and very well done Godzilla will be directing the first one coming out in 2016.

Coming to Disney X D is a new animated series entitled Star Wars Rebels that will tell the story between episodes III and IV.  I have come to love the Clone War Series and this one looks intensely good.

They are closing Captain EO in Tokyo Disneyland to replace it with the highly anticipated Stitch Encounter.


To me the most intriguing of concepts is the new Brad Bird film entitled Tomorrowland that is slated for May of 2015.  This film is quite a mystery and if you follow Disney Parks Blog, it is an even greater enigma.  I for one am excited if only to figure out what the mystery is, but please Brad Bird, if you get  the same person who advertised John Carter run out of the room screaming informing them they don’t have a chance in Judecca.


A dark supernatural sci-fi series entitled The Whispers is coming to ABC this fall.

ABC Family series Young & Hungry premiered June 25th.
