    I've always been a fan of Rebecca Sugar 's stuff. Especially the storyboards & sketches that Rebecca did for " Adventure Time ." Her drawings always had so much charm and beauty to them. And her songs are so sweet and emotional. Rebecca Sugar and her ukulele at Comic-Con Which is why I was overjoyed when I saw the pilot for Sugar's new show, " Steven Universe ." And when this series finally began airing on the Cartoon Network last November, I was over the moon...

    The Kingdom Hearts franchise enters the world of MMORPGS with Kingdom Hearts X (Chi)

    • 1 Comments
    Massively multiplayer online role playing games are an asset often left untouched by video game companies. Think World of Warcraft or Disney's old try at it with VMK (Virtual Magic Kingdom ). Often, it's just too much effort to tackle. You have to build worlds that keep players exploring, make interesting combat that hooks the player in, and -- of course -- find a way to turn a profit.

    Kingdom Hearts is the lovechild between Square Enix and Disney , with lots and lots of hair gel. It follows the adventures of a teen named Sora, and those who are impacted by him. Sora, the wielder of a special sword named a 'Keyblade,' travels from world to world to fight evil and right wrongs while finding his friends he was separated from. These worlds often house Disney characters, each world acting as universe for a film. For instance, an Alice in Wonderland world has all the characters...

    Virtual Magic Kingdom fans attempt to rebuild the Magic

    • 28 Comments
    Four years ago today (On May 21 st , 2008, to be exact) Virtual Magic Kingdom was shut down. One of Disney's more popular tries at an MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game. Think World of Warcraft .), the closing of VMK was met with petitions, and a not-so-successful protest at the park. VMK was ultimately closed, and fans to this day still lurk the unofficial VMK forums, reminiscing about their old game. VMK was ultimately meant only to really promote other Disney products,...

    Whenever Walt was asked about where he got the idea for Disneyland , he'd always trace that project's origin back to ... ... when my daughters were very young. And Saturday was always Daddy's day with the two daughters. I'd take them to the merry-go-round and as I'd sit there, sat on a bench, you know, eating peanuts, I felt that there should be some kind of an amusement enterprise built where the parents and the children could have fun together. So where did the idea for Epcot...
