The need to protect actors during movie making lead to the creation of the job known as stunt doubles, AKA stuntman. Little do we know that a job normally reserved for the fearless could be at threat of robot takeover too. Believe or not, Disney is hatching a plan to let autonomous humanoids take on dangerous stunt. Continue reading Wait, What? Now, Even Stunt Man’s Job Is Threatened By Robots?
What you see here is a Millennium Falcon and nope, it wasn’t parked among the wastes of the desert planet Jakku. Neither was it in Rub al Khali desert near Abu Dhabi, or Hollywood backlot. No, wait. It was actually on a backlot, just not in stateside. In fact, it was uncovered to be parked on the backlot of Longcross Studios outside of London, just off the M3 freeway. I said ‘was’ because, it was spotted way back in June and as you know, Google Earth only updates the satellite images between 1 and 3 years, and so, for all we know, it may have already moved between now and then. Continue reading Did Disney Did A Bad Job In Trying To Hide The Millennium Falcon?
Not only does Disney wants fans of Marvel to totally immerse in the superhero world even when they aren’t at the company’s parks, but it also wants Star Wars fans to do the same. Yup. That’s right.

Continue reading Fancy Staying In The Galaxy Far, Far Away? Well, Soon Will Be Able To!
Disney’s biggest cash cow is probably not the surprise hit Frozen, or any other of its animated flicks. If anything, it would be Marvel and Star Wars, which now proves to be the two most worthy acquisitions the entertainment company has ever made. And I am not going to lie: we never loved Disney this much before. Disney has taken, in particular, Marvel to a height previously unthinkable and it is continuing to do so by giving fans more tangible experience outside of the theaters. The Marvel-themed Disney’s New York Hotel is one such endeavor. Continue reading Disneyland Paris To Get Marvel-Themed Disney’s New York Hotel
When Marvel/Disney decided to go big in promoting Marvel movies, collaborating with Samsung for an Iron Man-themed Galaxy S6, we totally understand why. After all, Iron Man and the Avengers were and are still huge contributors to Disney’s coffer, but Pirates of the Caribbean? Not to belittle the Pirates franchise I personally enjoy watching, or Johnny Depp or Jerry Bruckheimer, but we didn’t think it warrant such a treatment. Nevertheless, here it is, the Samsung Pirates of the Caribbean Galaxy S8. As expected, this special edition phone is everything the standard Galaxy S8 is, which means everything about is identical to the standard device, save for some cosmetic touches. Continue reading Will You Buy A Samsung Pirates of the Caribbean-Themed Galaxy S8?
I don’t care what others think about Disney Research’s study into catching a real ball in virtual reality, but me think it could be an advancement in cheating in real life. How? Imagine you are having trouble catching ball pitched in a baseball game or maybe even in a game of football, then this development could actually help you in picking up the skill real quick. But wouldn’t putting on a VR headset blind you from the outside world as it is, after all, not augmented reality? Continue reading Is Disney’s Catching A Real Ball In VR A Cheat Code To Being A Good Catcher?
It was said Nicola Tesla once dreamed of a wireless powered world. Obviously, that didn’t quite pan out and the closest we get today is the wireless charging pads which are anything but perfect. For starter, wireless charging pad is not quite wireless as the pad still needs to be hooked up to an outlet and the device has to be physical placed on it to begin transferring of electricity. Furthermore, any misalignment in placement may result in non-charging and so, it looks like we are stuck at this point as far as wireless charging goes, but not if Disney can help it. Continue reading Disney Built A Room That Keeps Your Phone Charged When You Are Inside
In a nutshell, the soon-to-hit-theater Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is about how the Rebel sniffed out Death Star’s weakness that lead up to Luke and the gang destroying it in A New Hope and so, what could be a better way to promote the movie than recreating a Death Star right here on Planet Earth? Ok, technically, Death Star is a lot bigger than Earth could hold, but anyways, here it is, the Spaceship Earth at Epcot, transformed to look like the giant Death Star – complete with the much feared planet obliterating Super Laser – the main arsenal of the moon-size space station. Continue reading Spaceship Earth At Epcot Turned Into Death Star With Working Super Laser
You can’t call yourself a Star Wars super fan if you don’t remember the MSE-6 Mouse Droid from Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. The Mouse Droid has considerably less screen time as compared to other droids, but it left a lasting impression on many nevertheless. In fact, if you recall, it was only seen in one scene where it was shoo off by Chewbacca’s roar as he was escorted by a pair of Stormtroopers after being caught inside the Death Star. Continue reading Lesser Known Star Wars Mouse Droid Is Finally Getting Its Own R/C Toy Version
Toy Story is arguably the biggest animation to have rolled out of Disney’s Pixar since, well, nothing and while the first flick more than a decade old, it is still loved by many. So much so that it is going to get its fourth movie in 2018, after a good eight years hiatus. Between now and 2018, Toy Story fans, who are likely all grown ups, can fill in their misses for this endearing animation with these official collaboration kicks coming from sneakers maker Vans.
