    Marvel Studios has done it again. Under the watchful eye of Marvel Cinematic Universe mastermind Kevin Feige, a diverse group of directors, writers and actors have produced hit after hit since the ambitious project began in 2008.

    Seven years after Iron Man raged onto the scene and revived Robert Downey Jr.’s career, AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON does what would seem to be impossible. An ever growing roster of lead characters are expertly developed as a new threat is faced - and it never feels like a retread.

    Disneynature has released its sixth Earth Day feature film this time based on one of my favorite species, monkey's! MONKEY KINGDOM follows a pack of Macaques struggling with social structures. We have Raja the king trying to keep his kingdom away from outside distractions, including humans, and Maya who struggles being a lower class monkey. Like most of the Disneynature films, this tries to tell us a story, and in some cases it does, some it misses the mark, but it is overall visually stunning.

    Disney and Musical Theater nerds rejoiced when Disney announced it was making a live action version of INTO THE WOODS and making it into a musical as well. When first released for Christmas it definitely received some mixed reviews. Purist's hated the fact that they changed the story to be less dark and inappropriate, and some absolutely loved the new adaptation of the show. I was mixed on my reaction of the film, I loved the music and I'm a huge Sondheim fan in general, and the sets and backgrounds were to die for, but it just didn't completely hit it out the park for me. Even though INTO THE WOODS wasn't perfection, I was still excited to get my hands on the Blu-ray and it does look stunning on any television!

    It has definitely been in ongoing theme with Disney lately to try and freshen up their animated classics with new live action remakes. Some have been hit or miss. I actually really loved MALEFICIENT, while others didn't feel it lived up to the animated version. So when Disney once again announced it would release one of the most iconic fairytale stories in a live action version of CINDERELLA, I had mixed feelings. There isn't much you can screw up here, and fortunately they didn't. And MOUSEINFO had the chance to attend the press junket where we could ask the filmmakers and the cast about some of our favorite parts of this truly breathtaking film.

    CINDERELLA will not have trouble finding an audience. The newest Disney reimaginging of an animated-feature to live-action film is another successful translation.

    This is certainly promising considering the continued trend with upcoming pictures such as The Jungle Book and Beauty and the Beast which are already in production and the freshly-announced Dumbo reboot under the tutelage of Tim Burton.


    While the 1951 animated Cinderella remains a personal favorite from the classic Disney animated vault, the same cannot really be said about the new film. That’s not to say it is bad, in fact, it’s quite good. It’s just not... great.

    Perhaps CINDERELLA had big slippers to fill?

    You are going to absolutely fall in love with Elsa’s boogers. No really. After watching the new animated short FROZEN FEVER ahead of the new live-action CINDERELLA, some of my first thoughts were that Elsa boogers are going to be the new must-own thing. Oh, and also that I really want to see another FROZEN film.

    Luckily, as of yesterday, we now know that a sequel to FROZEN is actually in the works! What’s more, Disney merchandising is actually on their game and has the option for you to buy Elsa boogers, too! A fan’s dreams come true.

    But I guess you’re probably wondering what the heck Elsa boogers even are? Well, they are the subject of the new animated short and have got to be the gosh darnedest cutest bodily secretion that Disney has ever tackled in animated form.

    For the first time ever on Digital HD/BluRay/DVD Combo Pack you can enjoy the magic of Walt Disneys 17th animated classic 101 DALMATIONS in special Diamond Edition release. Hoooray!

    You'll rediscover the financial irresponsibility of raising 99 pups plus two adult dogs and fall in love with the benevolent Cruella DeVil as she attempts to rescue them from a future of malnutrition and neglect. Okay maybe not.

    What you will find is a gorgeous HD presentation of a very fine film. The film itself is perfection; the perfect candidate for the Diamond Edition treatment.
