Word is out that our favourite Web Head’s Sony movie franchise is about to get some help from Marvel Studios, and this has most nerds speculating that Spidey just might be swinging into the “Civil War” movie due out in a few years!

Okay... Now lose the pants.

Casting and TV Show News

Emma Watson - Belle

A lot of breaking news stories today, the first one being that Hermione herself has been cast in a live action version of Beauty and the Beast.  Emma Watson will be playing none other than Belle, which is a great role for her.  Watson let fans know on Facebook:

“I’m finally able to tell you… that I will be playing Belle in Disney’s new live-action Beauty and the Beast! It was such a big part of my growing up, it almost feels surreal that I’ll get to dance to ‘Be Our Guest’ and sing ‘Something There’. My six year old self is on the ceiling – heart bursting. Time to start some singing lessons. I can’t wait for you to see it. Emma xx”

I get very excited when I hear that an actor is excited for their role, that always makes me very happy and hopeful.  The movie will be directed by Guillermo del Toro, no word yet on who will be playing the Beast.

David-Tennant-Killgrave

In other casting news The Doctor himself has been cast as a villain in the upcoming Jessica Jones TV series on Netflix.  David Tennant will be playing Killgrave who is one of the main villains.  The creators of the show are very excited to have him on board.  Jessica Jones will be played by Krysten Ritter.

X-Men

In TV show news, Fox is in negotiations with Marvel about creating an a live action X-Men TV show.  While Fox does own the right to the X-Men franchise, the fully extent of the rights are not known.  It is not shocking to see Fox jump on the live action show bandwagon since Marvel has had success with Agents of SHIELD.

Nothing is set in stone, we would not see the show before 2016, but they are hopeful for the show.  Especially since Fox has had such great success with Gotham, some of the people from 24 and Star Trek 3 are being names as producers and writers on the show.

I would love to see a live action X-Men show, it would be interesting to see which of the comics they would use and what storylines they would use.  It could be really interesting because there are a lot of great stories to choose from.  With the younger cast they have for the movies they could start off with a some of the earlier storylines. That is if it will be the same cast from the movies, but that would be absolutely awesome, since it is an ensemble cast, they could very easily rotate people.  I am curious to see what happens with this development.

Those are all the new stories that broke out today, but it was a great day for news.  We will do our best to keep you up to date will all of these stories and more.

OUaT – S4E4 “The Apprentice”

You guys… Mickey Mouse got GOT.

So, let’s talk about it.

This, I think, was one of the better episodes in terms of tying Disney mythology to the show in a subtle and believable (for a show about magic and fairytales and shit) way.

OUaT S4E3 – “Rocky Road”

…Is that an ice cream pun in the title of this episode?

You butter(pecan) believe it!

Ahhhhhhahahahahaha, I’m delightful.

Okay, so I had this whole post written out when a power thing managed to erase it because, apparently, auto save didn’t want to work… I’m still bitter.

So let’s delve right on into a synopsis.

MOVIE REVIEW: “Maleficent”

OR, “Something’s wrong with Sleeping Beauty, you guys…”

 

So, three of us from TFP went to a Thursday evening showing of Disney’s newest live-action film, “Maleficent,” starring Angelina Jolie in the titular role.

You could cut glass with those cheekbones.

It was… Rather different than perhaps we had been expecting.

The Teaser Trailer for Disney’s Cinderella

The teaser trailer for the live action version of Cinderella has been released.

The trailer does not give us much besides the iconic glass slipper, the slipper does look amazing.

The movie is directed by Kenneth Branagh who was Gilderoy Lockhart in The Chamber of Secrets and directed Thor.

Lilly James of Downtown Abby will be playing Cinderella and Richard Madden (Rob Stark) will be playing Prince Charming.  The cast also includes Hayley Atwell (Agent Carter) as Cinderella’s mother, Helena Bonham Carter (Bellatrix Lestrange) as the Fairy Godmother, Cate Blanchett of the LOTR series as the Stepmother, and Stellen Skarsgard (Erik Selvig) as the Grand Duke.

The movie is expected to come out March of 2015.

Rescuing the Magic Kingdom

Welcome to a quick (okay, not so quick) guide to helping to save the Magic Kingdom!

Ahyuk!

As all should be aware the Magic Kingdom is under constant threat of numerous Villains, the leader in this threat seems to be Hades, who has access to all villains alive and dead (a little creepy when you think about it too much).  Disney World is always on the look out for heroes to help save the Magic Kingdom.  If you’re a willing volunteer, unafraid the perils of villains and throngs of masses also attending the festivities of the Magic Kingdom, then you can become a Secret Sorcerer.

It’s a process just to get to the gates!

Once you’ve taken the ferry or the monorail over to the awe inspiring world of Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, you find yourself on the streets of Main Street USA.  If you’re lucky the first thing you’ll see will be a horse…

Horse!!!

…and that horse will be pulling a car full of happy peppy singers…

…singers… so… much… pepp…

If you’re like me, once you’ve recovered from the frightened shock of the energy these positive creatures exude, and your eye has stopped twitching because it’s still just 9:00AM, you’ll want to make you’re way over to the Firehouse.
