One of Disney’s greatest shows from the 90’s is without a doubt Gargoyles. Funko is releasing some pretty cool items based off the show this summer.
Goliath & Demona will be released as Pop Keychains, while a stone version of Demona will be sold exclusively for Hot Topic
For Pops we’ll be getting Wyvern Gargoyle clan leader Goliath, Lexington, Brooklyn, Broadway, Bronx & Demona
Look for stone versions of Hudson & Bronx sold exclusively at FYE
Stone versions of Demona can be found exclusively at Hot Topic
While the stone version of Goliath will be found exclusively at Target
Han Solo shot first. Even Ron Howard knew this.
I’m going to see it Sunday.
I’ll be there in the theatre in less than 12 parsecs
While Jules Verne’s book 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea has been out since 1870 & for when it was written was well ahead of it’s time scientifically, I believe the most well known form of this novel would be the Disney film. Released in 1954 the movie starred Kirk Douglas as Ned Land, James Mason as Captain Nemo, Paul Lukas as Professor Pierre Arronax & Peter Lorre as Conseil. While the movie was well written & performed, the special effects are stunning, the real star of this movie would be Disney’s The Nautilus.
Created by Harper Goff, Disney’s version of the Nautilus is the one that is forever remembered. Goff designed it with the cross between a shark & an alligator, which you can see in the long protruding front which would be the alligator’s mouth, two portholes which resemble the shark eyes, the bolts all over the sub which look like the gator scales & even what looks like a fin that pieces the water like the shark’s dorsal fin.
This is a DELL comic book of Disney’s 20,000 Leagues. No Nautilus on the cover, but it’s so cool to see the price of 1o cents for it when it first was released.
This is Dark Horse comics version of the book. Notice the close resemblance of the Nautilus to Disney’s version.
Here is a comic from Caliber called The Searchers. The sub clearly looks like Disney’s Nautilus, though I’m sure Disney didn’t let them have permission.
I’ve been thinking this over since I wrote about this last night. Why would Disney create a show based off the Rocketeer for their Disney Jr channel? It doesn’t really make sense. The age group who watches Disney Jr certainly doesn’t know who the Rocketeer even is & the parents would never let their child see the original comic since Cliff’s girlfriend is the book isn’t Disney appropriate.
The more I thought on this the more I realized that Disney should’ve made this show for Disney X D. The viewers of this channel would be more in tuned with the movie, plus, this could be a good way to see how the viewers like it & build on the Rocketeer.
The series could take place right after the first movie, or, years later where Cliff & Jenny’s child, or even grandchild, becomes the Rocketeer. The actors who played Cliff, Jenny & Peevey are all still alive so they could even get the original voices for the role.
I guess this is the concept Disney wants though, so we’ll just have to see.
While back Disney mentioned they were planning on rebooting The Rocketeer with an African-Amercain female lead. Nothing came of this, but today, the Disney website OH MY DISNEY (www.ohmydisney.com) posted that in 2019 on Disney Jr. a NEW Rocketeer television show will be part of their programing.
Each episode will have two 11 minute shorts plus a new song. The show will follow Kit, who becomes The Rocketeer when she opens a birthday present which presents to her her future of being The Rocketeer. Kit will be joined by her “gadget-minded” best friend Tesh, & airplane mechanic Ambrose (remember he’s Peevey from the comic & movie, Cliff’s friend & mentor).
Per the Oh My Disney website –
“We are very excited to introduce The Rocketeer to our young Disney Junior audience. The vast storytelling found in the original comic books provides the perfect opportunity to create an exciting new adventure series told from a young girl superhero perspective that the whole family can enjoy together.”
Here’s to seeing The Rocketeer take flight in 2019. When voice casting begins I’ll mention more.
I really like these posters for the new Solo movie of Han & Chewie.
Did you ever think what happened once “Hocus Pocus” ended? Sometimes I think these things, like, when there isn’t a sequel made, what happened to the characters? Sure, I know they’re fake, but, still, what happened to them?
Well, when it comes to “Hocus Pocus”, we’ll soon learn what happened to Max, his sister Dani & Allison, 25 years later, when Max & Allison’s daughter releases the Sanderson sisters.
No, this isn’t the plot of the “Hocus Pocus” re-boot I mentioned a while ago. Instead this is the concept for the new book due out this summer titled “Hocus Pocus & the all-new sequel”
