No matter how grown up you are now, don’t even try to tell us you weren’t full-on obsessed with at least one Disney character way back when. The thing is, you hit your teens and all of a sudden it was “weird” that you were still dressing up as Little Red Riding Hood. (Or so…

Uniqlo To Team Up With, Gulp, Disney?

Uniqlo has been trying hard to keep up with the Topshops and H&Ms of the world lately by announcing new initiatives and designer collaborations.

The Mouse House Is Too Cheesy For The Diary of Anne Frank Or Any Literature Classic

Disney is teaming up with Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Mamet to make a movie out of The Diary of Anne Frank. Seeing the words “Disney” and “Anne Frank” in the same sentence seems a little strange to me. They know this one doesn’t end with the prince and princess living happily ever after, right? Hopefully,…

Tim Burton’s “Alice In Wonderland” Is Going To be Amazing

Tim Burton is one of my favorite directors. I know “The Nightmare Before Christmas” by heart and left the theater with goosebumps after seeing his twisted remake of “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.” Not to mention that I admire his constantly casting Johnny Depp! Which is why I could not contain my excitement upon seeing…

Mickey Mouse’s ears are iconic, but they’re getting a makeover this year. To celebrate Disneyland Resort Paris’ year-long “Mickey’s Magical Party,” Disney created the My Mickey Ears project, and they’re getting famous folks and fashion designers to redesign Mickey’s iconic ears for an auction to benefit the Great Ormand Street Hospital Children’s Charity in London.

Interracial Dating In “The Princess And The Frog” — So What?

Later this year, Disney plans to release its first animated musical featuring a black princess, “The Princess and the Frog.” Even lthough Disney is taking a big, albeit late, step by creating its first black princess, the project hasn’t been without controversy.

Poor Strawberry Shortcake! Make The Cartoon Makovers Stop!

Why do things have to change? With the news that Strawberry Shortcake went and got a makeover, we were upset. How could you take a girl who looked like a ragamuffin and turn her into a tween queen? Seriously, Strawberry looks like the most popular Mean Girl in her class. And now there’s word that…
