Just in time for Valentine’s Day, not to mention a clever follow-up to yesterday’s news of Piggy’s wedding dress and the ‘Two Kermits’ promo comes ‘Two Women.’ Apparently Piggy isn’t the only femme fatale who has her heart set on Kermit in the upcoming film Muppets Most Wanted (in theaters on March 21, 2014). You can find the new promo embedded below.
Miss Piggy is back on the big screen, starring in Disney’s Muppets Most Wanted, which follows the Muppets on a grand, star-studded tour throughout Europe. The European setting screamed romance to Miss Piggy, who’s been trying to convince her favorite frog to tie the knot for years. But what will the divine diva don for the all-new film, which hits theaters on March 21, 2014? Vivienne Westwood was commissioned to create couture designs for the fashion icon, including a white dress that would be perfect for a wedding — if one should actually take place.
Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has released a new clip from its upcoming film from DisneyToon Studios, The Pirate Fairy, available to own on April 1, 2014 (pre-order). In the clip, titled ‘You Got to Love the Boots,’ watch as the pirates celebrate the ship’s new captain. You can find the clip embedded below (note that for some reason, the clip’s audio is only on the right channel).

Walt Disney Studios has provided us with a couple of new stills from its upcoming Muppets movie, Muppets Most Wanted (March 21, 2014), which we have added to our gallery of images embedded below. The new stills focus on Kermit look-alike Constantine and his number two, Dominic Badguy.
Courtesy of Walt Disney Studios UK, we have our first clip from the upcoming Pixar Monsters University short, ‘Party Central,’ which will play ahead of Muppets Most Wanted in theaters on March 21, 2014.
In the short, Mike and Sulley return to Monsters University for a fun-filled weekend with their Oozma Kappa fraternity brothers. The gang is throwing their first party, but no one’s showing up. Luckily for them, Mike and Sulley have come with a plan to make sure ‘Party Central’ is the most epic party the school has ever seen.
On January 14, 2014, the original motion picture soundtrack to Disney’s Frozen, as well as the single ‘Let It Go,’ were recognized by the RIAA as being certified gold (selling more than 500,000 physical copies). To commemorate the event as well as the success of the film and the album in general, Disney held a private showcase event last night the Vibrato Grill Jazz Club in Los Angeles.
In honor of next week’s release of The Jungle Book Diamond Edition, which marks the first time the immortal Disney classic will be available on Blu-ray, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has provided us with sketches and concept art created for the film. Admittedly much of these has been previously released before, but rarely at such a high resolution. So high in fact, that we had to shrink down several of the images in size just to make them fit. In addition to the concept art, they have also provided us with sneak peeks from the all new bonus feature, ‘Music, Memories & Mowgli: A Conversation with Richard M. Sherman, Diane Disney Miller and Floyd Norman.’
Walt Disney Studios and DisneyToon Studios have announced that actor/singer/composer Carlos Ponce will assume the role of sensitive pirate Bonito in The Pirate Fairy). Serving as rigger alongside James and Zarina in the film, the huge Spaniard can throw a harpoon a hundred yards. But Bonito is quite passionate about sewing, not only the ship’s sails, but also applying dainty double-stitched seams to his fairy captain’s tiny outfits.
