In addition, Disney Parks today announced that beginning April 13, its Innoventions attraction located in Disneyland’s Tomorrowland in Anaheim, California will be hosting a ‘Stark Expo’ of sorts, featuring actual set pieces from the film. The ‘Iron Man Tech Presented by Stark Industries’ exhibition will give Disneyland park guests the chance to see Tony Stark’s Hall of Armor, featuring Iron Man suits Mark I-VII -– the same suits featured in Iron Man 3. Guests will even be able to virtually ‘suit up’ via simulation technology, that will allow them to see what it’s like to operate the latest pieces of the Mark 42 Iron Man armor, even getting the chance to test out its infamous repulsor blasts. The exhibition is scheduled to run through September.

Along with official casting announcements, Walt Disney Studios has provided us with hi-res images (billed as ‘character poses’) along with official character descriptions for the cast of DisneyToon’s Planes, taking off in theaters on August 9, 2013.
Inspired by the world of Cars from Pixar Animation Studios, Disney’s Planes is an action-packed 3D animated comedy adventure featuring Dusty (voice of Dane Cook), a plane with dreams of competing as a high-flying air racer. But Dusty’s not exactly built for racing — and he happens to be afraid of heights. So he turns to a seasoned naval aviator who helps Dusty qualify to take on the defending champ of the race circuit. Dusty’s courage is put to the ultimate test as he aims to reach heights he never dreamed possible, giving a spellbound world the inspiration to soar.
Last night, Disney Channel debuted three new ‘Cars Toons’ Shorty Shorts: ‘Hiccups,’ ‘Bugged,’ and ‘Spinning.’ The new Shorty Shorts are appropriately named since each one clocks in at under 90 seconds, while offering a quick and fun peek into the world of Cars. Directed by Jeremy Lasky and produced by Mary Alice Drumm, Disney Pixar ‘Cars Toons’ feature some of our favorite characters in new and surprising situations.
The new shorts are now available to watch on Disney.com. Click on any of the titles below to go directly to the video:
When it comes to releasing animated classics from Walt Disney Animation Studios, there appears to be little to no rhyme or reason for the release order and timing — at times it’s just downright mayhem. When Blu-ray releases seem to conveniently coincide with a release date anniversary milestone, such as Mulan’s 15th, and touted as such, it often makes consumers wonder why some films seem to have been forgotten.
Enter Lilo & Stitch which celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2012. Unfortunately the year came and went without any fanfare save for a respectable mention at D23’s national ‘Fanniversary’ events. In 2013, however, 11 years after the film’s release, the tides are apparently about to turn.
IMAX Corporation (NYSE: IMAX; TSX: IMX) and The Walt Disney Studios, a division of The Walt Disney Company (NYSE: DIS), today announced an agreement to produce and distribute the latest IMAX® 3D cinematic space spectacle from acclaimed filmmaker Toni Myers, who has been crafting mind-blowing movie experiences for IMAX audiences for more than 40 years.
Myers’ upcoming 3D film, which is still untitled, will use IMAX’s extremely high-resolution photography and videography to offer breathtaking, illuminating views of our home planet from space, exploring the astonishing changes that have occurred on Earth in just the past several decades.
Admittedly we’ve sounded the alarm for the dual movie pack of Atlantis: The Lost Empire/Atlantis: Milo’s Return before, but this time we’re almost certain it’s going to happen. Ahead of any official announcement (which is expected later today if the pattern holds), Amazon.com has begun accepting pre-orders for the movie/sequel pair on Blu-ray for a release date of June 11, 2013. This was not the case when we believed it to be released alongside of Mulan, Brother Bear and Hunchback of Notre Dame and their respective sequels earlier this year.
A Twitter user by the name of @gavinthomas2015 has shared a couple of images from the set of Disney’s Muppets… Again with several Muppet-oriented websites including Tough Pigs. It’s not known at this time whether the release of the images was done with the blessings of Walt Disney Studios, but for the time being, please enjoy.
IMAGES REMOVED AT THE REQUEST OF WALT DISNEY STUDIOS
The first image features the film’s villain and Kermit-double Constantine alongside Tina Fey as feisty prison guard Nadya.
Also sent along for the ride is this image of Gonzo in costume, seemingly taking a breather behind the camera.
