Looking at all things Disney.
Hello & welcome back to A Look at Disney. In 2016, Lego released a wave of Blind Bag minifigures based on Disney characters. I love Lego & Disney, so I knew that I wanted these but instead of trying to search through Blind Bags, I found the ones that I wanted by either hunting them out at conventions at BrickFair or looking for them on Amazon and added them to my wishlist. And thus fair, it has worked out rather well as I was able to get Mickey Mouse, Aladdin, & Ariel at BrickFair and got Ursula, Genie, Captain Hook, & Peter Pan for Christmas. I knew that I wanted to look at the ones that I’ve gotten thus fair but wasn’t sure to go about how to do it. Then I thought the best way would to be ranking them from least favorite to favorite. With that outta the way, let’s begin. This won’t be a Top Numbers list as I do like these for the most part but there are just some that are better than others.
Hello & welcome to a special A Look at Disney. I’ll admit that I didn’t have much planned as I just finished a month long event for A Look at Disney and didn’t really feel like doing a theme week so soon after finishing a month long themed event but I still wanted to do something special for my birthday. I’ll admit that it’s been kinda hard thinking of anything to do. So, I decided to have some fun and look at Disney birthdays and songs with them. This was a bit of a stretch, I’ll admit. But I did find some. With that outta the way, let’s begin.
Hello & welcome back to A Look at Disney and today, we continue our Return To The Theater. But first some history, Annie is a Broadway musical that was originally adapted from the comic strip, Little Orphan Annie that debuted in 1924. In 1977, the Broadway musical adaption of Annie debuted and soon surpassed the original source material in popularity. To the point, where in 1982, Columbia released the first film adaption of Annie.
Now, there have been other takes on the material such as a modernization that was released in 2014
Hello & welcome back to A Look at Disney and we continue our Return To The Theater as we look at the stage adaption of Mary Poppins. As always, we will look at What’s The Same, What’s Different, New Music, and lastly, I’ll give my Final Thoughts. With that outta the way, let’s begin.
Sarah, the older sister of Jacob and Les really doesn’t add much to this film and to me she is the most forgettable character in the entire film. Seriously, she added nothing of value to the film and while I get that she was supposed to be the love interest for Jack, the film spent so little time developing that, to the point where they got together at the had had me scratching my head. Honestly, the one thing that sticks out the most for me is sadly when she is being attack by the Newsies’ enemies, the DeLancey Brothers who are Scabbers that happen to look down on the Newsies. That is rather sad and I’ve heard that in the stage production, her character has been cut and honestly I think that can only improve the story.
Hello & welcome back to A Look at Disney and today, we continue our Return To The Theater with a special Music Fridays as I countdown my Top 6 Broadway Disney Songs. For the most part, I tried to stick with songs that originated in the musical and weren’t a part of the film that they were adapted from but I did make one exception and with that outta the way, let’s begin.
Hello & welcome back to A Look at Disney. Back in 2013, I did a Theater Week event and it is perhaps my favorite theme week that I’ve done as there is just a wealth of material to look at from the world of the theater. And I have decided that to open with another Theater event. However, this one will be a bit longer than a week. And here is what we will be looking at.
Moviefan12: Hello & welcome back to the Christmas celebration, here on A Look at Disney and today, I’ve brought along a friend that has visited A Look at Disney numerous times before as we look at the Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade. This is a special parade that is well known and sometimes mocked by the Disney fan community but when you do things like have a Frozen themed parade and don’t have any cast members from Frozen show up or air this at night on Christmas, when most people are either eating dinner or tired. There are bound to be some hindrances but this has been airing on ABC for 33 years and I’ve decided to look at some highlights from the parade’s history, both good & bad. This will be both good, bad, and just huh? So, please welcome back to A Look at Disney for this Christmas celebration, Richb.
RichB;Hello my friend. I didn’t watch the parade much as a kid, watching TV on Christmas morning wasn’t a thing that happened, but have watched it over the years since. And it over the years there have some thing I thought were done amazingly well, and other things just pissed me off!
Moviefan12: Now, let’s take a look at some of the hosts. Read more
