Am I a sucker for everything and anything related to Disney? Yes. Yes I am. This probably explains why I was floored when I saw digital artist, Kathryn Hudson’s (AKA spicysteweddemon) amazing collection of “Disney Prom” illustrations. The thing I really appreciate about this set is that Kathryn put together an brilliant set of illustrations of iconic Disney characters with her own stylized twist. It’s also a big plus that she gave much love to lesser popular Disney animated features like Atlantis: The Lost Empire, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, and Tarzan. From the look of Eric, I hope Ariel is packin’ some pepper spray. Keep up the amazing work Kathryn!
Pixar recently announced that there will be a Toy Story Halloween TV special called, Toy Story of Terror that will air on ABC later this year. Now, Pixar dropped the first image from the thirty minute special. Along with the first look, we get more info on the plot of Toy Story of Terror.
“Bonnie is on a road trip to go see grandma with her mom and the toys are in the trunk,” producer Galyn Susman says. “Mom gets a flat tire and they have to spend the night at a motel and all kinds of chaos ensues.”
“There was some support to make a scary, but not necessarily Halloween-themed half-hour Toy Story special for television,” director Angus MacLane says. “There was some concern early on about not making it too scary for kids. I think we’ve done a good job of balancing staying true to Toy Story and staying true to the genre. As far as adults are concerned, I’ve always thought that we make these movies for ourselves. I think it’s funny and like the other Toy Story films, I think there is plenty of stuff in there that only adults will get.”
“This is the first time that they’ve been on a road trip away from the house, so we’re exploring the relationships and the things that might come up on a road trip with toys, some of whom have lived and worked together for years, while others have only just met,” MacLane says. “They definitely have a family dynamic that is fun to see now that they’re all together on one road trip.”
Toy Story of Terror will bring back Tom Hanks (Woody), Tim Allen (Buzz Lightyear), Don Rickles (Mr. Potato Head), Wallace Shawn (Rex), and Joan Cusack (Jessie) along with Timothy Dalton (Mr. Pricklepants), Kristen Schaal (Trixie), and Carl Weathers as Combat Carl.
Way back in early 2011, there was a outcry in Detroit to honor one of it’s finest in statue form in their beloved city. That person in question was none other than Robocop. Since then, the Robocop statue project has gotten national attention and after a successful Kickstarter fundraiser (raised over $67,000) by Imagination Station Detroit, there is a ten foot tall scale statue of Robocop ready to go. All that needs to be done is for the city of Detroit to find a proper location for the statue and to bronze it so it will last forever for future generation of fans to enjoy. Imagination Station Detroit is hoping that the bronze Robocop statue will be complete by mid-2014. Keep up the great work!

Director Bryan Singer posted a nice little tweet of Hugh Jackman (as Wolverine) and Nicholas Hoult (as non-beatmode Beast) on the set of X-Men: Days of the Future Past. From the looks of their clothing, this is set in the seventies in Xavier’s secret underground headquarters. The only questions I have are: How did Beast go back to normal and didn’t Wolverine tell Xavier and Magneto to fuck off?
X-Men: Days of the Future Past opens July 18, 2014.
