A couple of days ago, Disney announced that they're upcoming feature film Gigantic, scheduled for a 2020 release, was no longer in development. My initial reaction was "wow, that's a shame", but after having a bit of time to think about it, I feel like there's more to it that needs to be said.
Firstly, it hasn't actually been completely cancelled. It has been shelved, meaning that they are halting the development of the film. This means that there is a chance that they'll revisit the idea later on. However, it is extremely unlikely that it will be released within the next few years.
So why has it been shelved? Well, Ed Catmull has said this:
"It’s impossible to know when we begin a project how the creative process will unfold, and sometimes…Read more >
About a week and a half ago I wrote a blog which ranked the Disney Princesses in order of my favourites (check it out here: http://disney.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:DisneyCWS/Ranking_the_Disney_Princesses ). I've decided to continue that route and rank the Disney Princes (yes, that is a thing). In case you haven't heard of the Disney Prince franchise, it does exist, but gets a lot less marketing than the Disney Princesses. You might be wondering who is in the Disney Prince franchise. Well, there's only one requirement: they must be the love interest of an official Disney Princess. Therefore, the Disney Prince lineup is: The Prince from Snow White, Prince Charming, Philip, Eric, Beast, Aladdin, John Smith, Shang, Naveen, and Flynn Rider (ther…Read more >
Right, so I just spent a couple of hours writing a few paragraphs about each of the Disney Princesses, but it didn't post and I can't find it anywhere, which is incredibly frustrating. So, in this blog, I'm gonna be rewriting it, but it's gonna be shortened. Just a few things to point out:
- Only official Disney Princesses count: Snow White, Cinderella, Aurora, Ariel, Belle, Jasmine, Pocahontas, Mulan, Tiana, Rapunzel, and Merida. So don't expect to see Anna, Elsa, Moana, Esmeralda, Eilonwy, Kuzco etc. on this list.
- This is MY opinion. Don't get offended.
Anyway, lets begin.
11) Merida - Brave
Merida is probably the only Disney Princess that I actually dislike. For the record, I do think it was unfair that she was being forced into marriage, …

Hey guys. I've watched a few Disney fan theories on Youtube, and they always seem to be fun, so I thought I'd give it a go myself. What film will I be theorising about? None other than Disney's 1994 classic, The Lion King! Yep, that's right, I'm about to tell you that one of the most loved characters in Disney history might be dead. You know, for fun! If it seems ridiculously far fetched, that's probably because it is. I don't know if anyone has explored this theory before, and I'm too lazy to check. Enjoy!
For this theory, we have to separate the setting of The Lion King into two different worlds: Pride Rock (the living world), and the jungle (the dead world, kinda like heaven).
So, as you can tell by the title, this theory explores the id…Read more >
Part 1 here: http://disney.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:DisneyCWS/Reviewing_Every_Disney_Movie_-_Part_1
This is the second part to my "Reviewing Every Disney Film" blogs. In the last blog, I reviewed 26 different Disney films, all from the official Walt Disney Animated Classics canon. In this blog, I reviewed 10 more. I have given them scores on plot, characters, soundtrack, and comedy, as well as an overall score. Like the last one, the scores work like this:
10 - Absolutely phenomenal.
9 - Amazing.
8 - Really good.
7 - Good.
6 - Average.
5 - Meh.
4 - Bad.
3 - Really bad.
2 - Terrible.
1 - Painfully awful.
Again, remember that this is MY opinion. Don't get upset about any of my scores. If I haven't reviewed any certain WDAS movie, then it's either in Pa…Read more >
