Miley Cyrus fans get ready because there’s big news coming your way.
When it came to shedding the clean-cut Disney star image, Miley has clearly excelled. The media has deemed her the new bad girl of pop culture with her platinum blonde short ‘do and daring outfits lately. This new video capitalizes on that and more with some new music from the former Disney starlet. Most importantly, it teases us that she’s set to make a huge announcement at this Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards. I hope it has something to do with her music, maybe a new video or an album release date?!
I guess we’ll have to find out when The Billboard Music Awards airs Sunday, May 19 on ABC.
The movie Madagascar has turned itself into franchise with two other movies and a television show dedicated to its rag-tag team of penguins. Let’s also not forget the number of shorts and its long line of merchandise the franchise based on zoo animals can also boast.
The Madagascar movies just get better and better, and have managed to rope in an older demographic. Everyone loves the hilarious characters, implicit innuendos, sharp humour and larger than life plot lines. It also helps that the franchise has a star-studded cast that include David Schwimmer, Chris Rock, Ben Stiller, and Jada Pinkett Smith.
In the most recent instalment, Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted, their devoted audience has been introduced to a Russian tiger, a sexualized grizzly bear, and an emotional sea lion. It only goes up hill from here.
HERE ARE 17 REASONS WHY WE LOVE THE MADAGASCAR FRANCHISE
1) The mischievous penguins
2) Afro Circus
3) Gloria’s fierceness
4) The car chase scenes
5) Some animals are so fluffy you want to put them in your pocket
Just in case you know someone who’s really into dressing up their pets, make sure you get them this for their next big occasion. The Lion Mane Hat from Nestasnest on Etsy turns fluffy the cat into Simba the Lion. Rawrrrrrrr! Don’t forget to start playing the whole soundtrack to The Lion King to get the full effect.
It’s a departure from Disney, that’s for sure.
The former High School Musical starlet released the music video Friday for her Spring Breakers track “$$$ex” and I have no words. Let’s just say that if I tried to describe this video, you would think I was recounting a particularly vivid acid trip from a wild rave in the 90s. It’s something you have to see to believe. I understand growing up and wanting to separate yourself from the squeaky clean Disney image, but I think the multiple nude photo scandals and risqué role in the movie were enough for her.
Check out the video here:
Remember how Disney animation was all handrawn? With all the special effects now, animation seems less tedious—or just tedious in different ways. The magic of Disney just seems to become more and more apparent as it’s audience grows to appreciate the work and effort that went into the construction of films that comprised their childhood.
In an incredible blog post, Technicolour Disney shows how Disney would film real actors so that animators could refer to them in animation. The pictures featured in the blog post show iconic Disney characters with their actor counterpart acting out famous scenes from their animated film. The post includes pictures of Tinker Bell—both animated and real—as well as the Mad Hatter, and Snow White.
COMPARE YOUR FAVOURITE DISNEY CHARACTERS TO THEIR REAL LIFE COUNTERPARTS HERE:
SamMacaroni‘s parody ”Star Wars VII – Return of the Empire” brilliantly incorporates classic Disney-isms into the Star Wars universe. It’s appropriate enough considering Disney’s highly controversial move to buy Lucasfilms, Star Wars’ production company.
In this parody, Darth Vader has a high-pitched Mickey Mouse-esque voice with complimentary ears, Wall-E is best friends with R2D2, and Luke Skywalker looks like Zac Efron circa High School Musical. There are also several characters who have been put through the Disney factory and are now animated and well, cute! But bringing Disney into the Star Wars world doesn’t mean everything family friendly. Marconi turns Yoda into a club kid.
“Star Wars VII – Return of the Empire” stars Macaroni and fellow YouTubers Timothy Delaghetto, ShayCarl, Ed Bassmaster, Liz Katz and Alex Farnham.
P.S. Am I the only one who thinks R2D2 kind of resembles a Dalek from Doctor Who?
With a land as magical as Disney World and Disneyland, some urban legends are sure to follow.
The most recent Disneyland urban legend to take yet another round on the Internet is the myth that if you yell “Andy’s coming” in front of Toy Story characters at Disney, they’ll automatically drop to the floor just like in the movies. While this is a great movie-to-real-life ploy, the actors no longer do this.
According to one Disney World guide in this video, Jesse and Woody used to drop to the floor but the parks have since changed their policy, so now the most that they do is freeze in place. We’re assuming Disney axed this policy because having their characters drop to the floor was scaring off the kids. Yeah, we could imagine:
Kid: Hey, Woody! You’re my hero! I love you so much! Can you sign this please?
Random stranger: ANDY’S COMING! (Woody drops to the ground)
Kid: Mommy, I think I killed Woody! *Cries*

Apparently, Disney’s slogan “The Happiest Place on Earth” doesn’t extend to its Studio parking lot.
Writer Alan Sereboff posted this note on his Tumblr yesterday claiming that it was placed on a “friend of a friend’s car at Disney Studios.” The friend has repeatedly parked in a reserved spot and needless to say, the owner of said spot is a little pissed off about it.
Not only has the writer of the said letter threatened to cover the car in egg salad and Walt’s famous chili so it “dries into a substance so hard all the windows will have to be replaced,” he also threatened to include the offending driver on his list of “The Greatest Assholes of Human History.” Hitler, Dahmer, Genghis Khan, Bush (not clear if he meant W. or H.W.), Tina Fey, Pol Pot, Zach Braff and Jack the Ripper.
HOLD. UP. Why is Tina Fey on this list? What did she do to even be called an asshole? Judging from her New York Times best seller Bossypants, she may be the greatest person alive.
Anyways, the lesson to be learned here is don’t piss off a Disney employee, for as happy as they’re supposed to be, they apparently have a dark side to them.
With Spring Breakers in theatres, you can’t help to wonder – when did Selena Gomez grow up? It’s only been a year since the Disney star has appeared on Wizard of Waverly Place, but with her career continuing to skyrocket, it’s been a busy one. Then you look at her co-star Vanessa Hudgens who has completely transition herself from sweet Gabriella on High School Musical to her own person, taking on mature roles. Too bad some other Disney stars can’t say the same.
Here’s just a quick and handy chart to show you what life is like after Disney.
First former Disney stars Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens, now the Disney princesses, it looks like everyone is getting wild during spring break.
College Humor took the liberty of spoofing the much talked about Spring Breakers movie with all our favourite Disney princesses. Not everything is all “Happy Ever After” for Jasmine, Ariel, Cinderella and Snow White as they rob stepmothers, get crunk with a cornrowed Genie and shoot some magical wands off into the air. The girls get so wild that Mickey Mouse would probably chose to shoot himself rather than watch.
“It means no worries for the rest of your days, y’all,” the Genie says.
WATCH THE FAKE TRAILER BELOW:
While Miley Cyrus’ relationship is rumored to be on the outs, she doesn’t let drama faze her as she twerks while wearing a Unicorn onesie in this new video.
The video, which was originally posted on her Facebook page, shows Miley dancing (twerking or woping, let’s pretend we know the difference) to “WOP” by J Dash featuring Flo Rida. Damn, who knew Miley could dance?
The man behind “Harry Potter in 99 Seconds” strikes again with a hilarious take on why all your favourite Disney movies end in lies.
Jon Cozart hits you where it hurts as he heartbreakingly tells us how The LIttle Mermaid, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, and Pocahontas would play out if we applied some modern knowledge today. In his take, Ariel has to live with an oil spill, the government is racially profiling Jasmine as Aladdin is thrown in Guantanamo Bay, Belle is being charged with bestiality, and Pocahontas caught a disease as spread by New World settlers.
Kind of grim but we love it anyways!

It’s one thing if your cat is being a whiny loser in the middle of the night, but it’s another to have a snoring dog. The former is more annoying in the middle of the night while the latter is a form of late night comedic relief.
It’s even funnier when you’re dog snores like Daffy Duck.
What? You watched the video and thought the dog sounds more like Donald Duck? Okay not to argue over the internet or anything, but we’re on the OP’s side because this is what Daffy Duck sounds like:
THIS IS WHAT DONALD DUCK SOUNDS LIKE:
ARE WE COOL NOW? DO WE ALL AGREE IT’S DAFFY AND NOT DONALD DUCK? THANK YOU!
Fine, I’ll bite. I’ll watch this fake ending for Paperman, the Oscar winning Disney short.
Wait. What? The paper planes come together to form a man?! And they didn’t just magically attack, I mean, gently nudge our two lovers together for the sake of romance? It, as in the actual paper man, was just horny? Whoaaaa… whoa. Not cool. I did not expect that at all.
Dammit, College Humor. You just had to go there.

We live in a world of knockoff jewellery, purses, and clothing but I didn’t think it went beyond that. Turns out, everything has a knockoff.
Te0pots has brought to our attention that Netflix thinks it can pull one over us with movie knockoffs. Thats right. MOVIE knockoffs. This is absurd, yet very funny. The posters for them are so unfortunate yet you can’t look away. Who even makes these movies?
Have these movie makers never heard of anything called copyright? The posters for the knockoff’s are identical to their counterparts, except with tweaked names and slightly altered (read: lower quality) animation.
I’m surprised there isn’t a Lord of the Rings knockoff titled “Journey to Mordor.”
I am kind of tempted to watch one of these know just for a good laugh. How about you? Would you ever watch one of Netflix’s movie knockoffs?
Don’t believe me about the knockoffs? Check out the posters below

Do you ever wonder what might have happened if Ursula married the prince? or if Cruella De Ville got her hands on the fur of those 101 dalmations?
TheArtOfImagination digital animations’s give us an idea of the possible alternative outcomes of classic disney tales – if the villains succeeded with their schemes. These are seriously awesome. I think someone needs to start writing alternative stories where the villains come out on top because, what can I say? Happily ever afters are predictable. It’s an interesting concept, this whole idea of good not triumphing over evil. Of course we dont want to ruin these tales for the younger generation who would probably be scarred for life if Cinderella remained sentenced to be a slave for her step-mother and step-sisters for the rest of her life, or if the Dalmations never escaped Cruelle De Ville.
Interesting enough, Hans Christian Anderson and the Grimm Brothers original tales were significantly darker then their disney adaptations, and recent movie adaptations of these tales like Snow White and the Huntsmen and Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters are also darker their their family friendly counter parts. Seems like it’s the age for dark spins on the “happily ever after” concept. What do you think of darker fairy tales?

I don’t have many words to say for this video other than I pretty much sprayed my drink all over the place from laughing so hard.
Mashing up the 1987 War movie Full Metal Jacket with Disney characters’ voices, YouTuber DingDangler has managed to take something serious and make it hysterical.
Whether you’re a hopeless romantic or an absolute cynic, it’ll be hard to find anything to dislike about this film.
Recently nominated for an Academy Award, the animated short “Paperman” directed by John Kahrs truly brings the magic of Disney to the forefront. A story about love, chance and destiny, this minimalist black and white film surrounds a lonely New York man who meets a beautiful woman by chance during his morning commute.
It’s no surprise that this film is getting critical acclaim. With beautiful cinematography and music, it will be difficult not to be charmed after watching this.
*sigh* Now if only my life was like this…
Watch the film here:
Disney wasted no time when they announced they would bring Stars Wars back to the big screen after their surprise acquisition of the space adventure franchise. At the time of the news, they hoped Episode VII would arrive at your local theatre as early as 2015.
And boy, are the folks at Disney moving fast as multiple reports are coming in that they have found their post-George Lucas director in none other than J.J. ABRAMS. *Cue Star Wars Fandom joint squeal*
Sources have told The Hollywood Reporter that the Lost producer is currently in late-stage talks with the Mouse-eared studio. Thus far, there is no confirmation from either Disney or Lucasfilm.
The new Star Wars episode will reportedly follow a new set of heroes with possible cameos from the original Luke and Leah Skywalker, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher. If Abrams is set to direct the latest installment, audiences can expect to see a lot of lens flare during space chases. Asides from that, we really won’t know what to look out for considering the director is notoriously secretive, but with Episodes I, II, and III safely behind us, it’s all up from here.
Though before Abrams can start putting his own twist on the series, he must put the final finishing touches on the latest edition of another out-of-this-world franchise, Star Trek into the Darkness, which will be released on May 17, 2013.
