Forget about the flying house, that giant bird and the talking dog. All of those out-of-the-ordinary items.

Monday Mouse Watch: Will "Bolt" 's box office rebound over the long Thanksgiving weekend?

Toon Tuesday : Will Disney Animation's latest "Rapunzel" rescue attempt have a negative impact on "Bolt" 's debut ?
By now, I'm sure that you're heard that Glen Keane is no longer the co-director of "Rapunzel." That he and Dean Wellins will be turning the reins over to Byron Howard & Nathan Greno , who were the co-director and head of story on " Bolt " respectively.
