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).

Earlier this evening, during the airing of the 56th Annual Grammy Awards on the CBS Network, Walt Disney Studios provided an exclusive sneak peek at its upcoming film, Maleficent (May 30, 2014). Featured in the ad for the film was a cover of the 1959 Sleeping Beauty classic, ‘Once Upon A Dream’ as performed by Lana Del Rey, which will play over the closing credits for the film. Del Rey was also nominated in two categories for the coveted Grammy: Best Pop Vocal (Paradise), Best Song Written for Visual Media (‘Young and Beautiful’ for The Great Gatsby).

We now have the running times for each of the bonus features, as per the British Board of Film Classification and aside from confirming that there appears to be no audio commentary, it also appears that some of the behind-the-scenes ‘documentary’ type material comes up short. The individual bonus features and their approximate length in minutes:seconds are as follows:
Toyota has released a 35 second preview of its upcoming minute-long Super Bowl ad featuring actor/ex-NFLer Terry Crews and The Muppets. Titled ‘Joyride,’ the spot will also feature an original song (heard in part here) titled ‘No Room for Boring.’ You can check out the teaser embedded below.
With their over-the-top personalities, the Muppets teach Crews’ character a thing or two about ‘unborifying’ his lifestyle as they ‘borrow’ his sweet ride, the Toyota Highlander. The spot features humorous hijinks, dancing and surprises — and no Muppet caper would be complete without an original song. Viewers will see that with seating for up to eight human passengers or more than a dozen Muppets, the all-new Toyota Highlander has plenty of room for everything — everything except boring.
