  • Blog Post: Monday Mouse Watch: With great power comes ... some surprising limitations

    There's this great story that I heard recently. One that (I think) speaks volumes about the way the Walt Disney Company is really run. This tale reportedly dates back to when Michael Eisner was still running the Mouse House. To be specific, this story deals with a meeting that was once held at Walt Disney...
  • Blog Post: A rather theatrical edition of "Why For"

    First up, Leslie C. writes in to say: Your "Tarzan" story on Monday must have really struck a nerve with Disney Theatrical. By Tuesday afternoon, Schumacher's flunkies already had an article up on Playbill.com where they denied that "Tarzan" had any significant sightline issues. They also insisted that...
  • Blog Post: Cast of Disney Channel's "High School Musical" to go on tour

    You'd think that -- what with the record-breaking sales of the "High School Musical" soundtrack (This certified-platinum CD returned to the No. 1 spot on Billboard's Top 200 chart just last week) Advertisement plus the fact that this wildly popular Disney Channel TV movie has become the very first full...
  • Blog Post: No more "Gnomeo"?! "Robinsons" to be radically retooled?!

    There have been a lot of great episodes of " The Simpsons " over the past 17 years. But one of my personal favorites comes from the fifth season of this animated Fox sitcom, "Deep Space Homer." During which the father of the Simpson clan finds himself on board the Space Shuttle ... along with an ant...
  • Blog Post: Monday Mouse Watch: A somewhat obstructed view of "Tarzan"

    It's one of Broadway's hard & fast rules. That a critic (or anyone else, for that matter) isn't supposed to review a show prior to its official opening. To do so robs the show's creative team of the chance to make any necessary changes. Add new scenes, cut songs that aren't working. Even recast roles...
  • Blog Post: "Cars" 's premiere to be held (appropriately enough) at North Carolina racetrack

    Listen. Do you hear that persistent whining sound? "What sort of miserable creature could ever make a horrible noise like that?," you ask. Well, that -- my friends -- is the sound that an East Coast-based Disneyana fan makes. Mind you, the reason that these poor pitiful people continually whine like...
  • Blog Post: Only two more weeks 'til the Janet McDonald Memorial Walk Against Cancer

    Cancer can do many things. It can sap your strength. It can rob you of your stamina. It can even erode your good looks. But you know what it can't do? Cancer can't destroy inner beauty. It can't ever corrupt a generous spirit and/or a noble heart. More importantly, cancer just doesn't stand a chance...
  • Blog Post: Why For returns

    First up, Jeff S. writes in ask: What is the word behind Bob Iger's announcement in the Disney Shareholder's meeting that "Song of the South" is still not coming to DVD? Dear Jeff S. Well, if you listened to the webcast of Disney's annual shareholder and/or were at Arrowhead Pond last Friday morning...
  • Blog Post: The folks from Pixar "Meet the Robinsons"

    You know, no one in Hollywood ever wants to admit that their film may be in trouble. Out of concern as to what that particular piece of information might then do to that motion picture's long-term box office prospects. So -- earlier this month -- when the Walt Disney Company quietly revealed that it...
  • Blog Post: Monday Mouse Watch: How things wax and wane out west

    Fame is fleeting. I'd always heard that cliche but never quite understood what it meant. Until these past five days in LA. I mean, who would ever have thought that you could actually attend a Walt Disney Company annual shareholder meeting and never once hear the name " Michael Eisner " ? Don't get me...
