Leaked? ‘Disney Universe’ Video Game Slips Back Into Black Hole

Earlier today, Amazon.com began listing a title called ‘Disney Universe’ for the Sony PlayStation 3, Microsoft Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii platforms with a release date of May 26, 2011. Subsequently, that information has been removed from Amazon.com’s site (but not before the non-cached pages were picked up by Google).

Not only is it unlikely that a game won’t be announced less than 10 days before its release, but games are traditionally introduced on Tuesdays, which May 26, 2011 is not (nor is it in 2012). That detail is minor, however, as Amazon.com has been known for making mistakes in dating releases before.

‘Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides’ Ride History Podcast, New Video Game Trailer

Walt Disney Studios Netherlands provides us with a couple of gems today for Pirates of the Caribbean 4: On Stranger Tides, in theaters nationwide on May 20, 2011.

First up is a podcast video hosted by Geoffrey Rush, focusing briefly on the history of the Disneyland attraction that inspired the franchise. In addition to the ride background, including a televised introduction to the attraction by Walt Disney (Pirates of the Caribbean was the last attraction that Walt personally worked on), the podcast also shows quite a bit of footage from the film plus behind-the-scenes footage which includes Johnny Depp (in full Captain Jack Sparrow makeup) making a grand entrance via helicopter. Because it comes from overseas, the podcast is subtitled, but is entirely in English (we will replace it with a non-subtitled version as it becomes available).
