Disney is buying Lucasfilm

Just announced today....  Disney is buying Lacasfilm which includes Star Wars and Indiana Jones.  Theme Park fans have been drooling over this idea for years and now it is happening.  Disney plans on producing more films. Maybe now, they will finally get around to doing that Star Wars tv series. 

I have mixed emotions about this actually,   While it is certainly a great fit for Disney, it will probably mean even less films that are "Disney" films.  What with Muppets, Pixar, Marvel and now Star Wars films being made, how much room is there for films that aren't franchises?  Or starting new franchises that aren't being purchased from someone else?

I love em all but would love to see Disney do more stuff on their own.

NEW 2012 Christmas Globe

Disney Store has revealed their 2012 snowglobe....
also available is this one that sold out last year......

Thursday, October 18, 2012


This snowglobe is the height and length of a normal sized snowglobe but as you can see by the 3rd photo it is narrow in design.  It does have water and glitter in it so that makes it a snowglobe in my book. We've seen this narrow design used in some Christmas Princess globes that were available at Target in 2009.  This is the first time we've seen it on this large an item.  On sale at Disney Parks for 24.95.

How weird is it that while I was creating this post and the one for the Collectors Guide that 5 tiny spiders decided to start crawling and creating webbing on my computer screen.  No lie.  Here comes another one.  Guess I better turn the lights on and figure out where they hatched from.

Sorry for the delay.  A personal tragedy struck in july and I have been dealing with the aftermath ever since.  Good news is I have decided to start posting again thanks to an unexpected email from our Disneyland Paris correspondent Maurice.  He has sent along a few pics of snowglobes from the European theme park and I am spending this evening setting up posts for the Disney Snowglobe Collectors Guide.   Over the next several days you will see some new Disney Christmas snowglobes, a couple of new Nightmare Before Christmas globes and our first Tangled snowglobe entry.  Disney Store currently has a nice selection of globes from the past including a good deal on this one from Aladdin......
$79.50 marked down to $32.99!!!   Grab it while you can!

At long last, there is a new Disney snowglobe revealed.  DisneyStore.com has quite a nice selection of merchandise for the upcoming Brave movie.  My favorite, of course, is the snowglobe.

new Snow White pin

One upcoming bright spot in Disney pins is this new entry in the Walt Disney World attractions poster series.  Designed by Alex Maher.  This pin will be released on April 12 and Alex will be doing a meet and greet at the Downtown Disney Marketplace on April 13th from 5 to 7pm.  Since Snow White's Adventures is being closed down, this is a must have for fans of the attraction.

2012 Disney snowdomes now available online

The 2012 snowdomes for Disneyland and Walt Disney World are now available at DisneyStore.com.  The other side is slightly different on each one representing attractions from the individual resort.  I like the plastic snowdomes but I sure wish they would try some designs that weren't so generic looking.  How about ones representing individual attractions like Space Mountain and Haunted Masnsion?  Wouldn't a glow in the dark snowdome featuring the Hitchiking Ghosts be cool?  C'mon Disney!  Where's the creativity?  These could be a heck of a lot more collectible then vinylmations if they were designed and marketed correctly.

Sorry I haven't been posting much.  The fact is that there just hasn't been that much Disney merchandise that has been catching my eye lately.  The only bright spot that I've found recently are some of these new pieces by Jim Shore.....
