    Although completely non-descript, Nintendo and Universal Studios recently announced a collaboration for new dedicated experiences and attractions based on beloved Nintendo games, characters, and worlds in the Universal theme parks.

    It is expected that the new experiences will begin to appear and replace the Kid Zone section of the Universal Studios Florida theme park vs. an all new world but in a world where flying wizards and oversized gorillas all intermingle, you never know what could be on the way... storming Bowsers Castle? On a quest for Zelda's ocarina?

    Although rumors swirl that Nintendo's presence could mean the end of Universal Orlando's Marvel attractions, that is definitely not the case. Reliable sources indicate that new Marvel attractions are planned for Universal's Islands of Adventure in the next 3-5 years, as their contract for Marvel rights is perpetual.

    Look for Nintendo attractions to start to appear at Universal Studios Florida, Hollywood and Japan within the next few years.

    What Nintendo experiences would you want to experience?

    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.
