On March 24, 2015, Orbit’s Yen Press imprint will publish Haruki Ueno’s Big Hero 6, Vol 1, a 192-page collection of official manga first published in Japan to introduce the story of the Marvel-inspired film from Walt Disney Animation Studios to the public. The official publisher’s description is as follows:
A new publisher’s description for Isle of the Lost, the prequel novel for the Disney Channel Original Movie ‘The Descendants,’ penned by Melissa de la Cruz, has been released. In addition, Amazon has provided what appears to be official character descriptions for the offspring of the famous Disney villains. The book’s description is as follows:
Evil Tree. Bad Apple?
Twenty years ago, all the evil villains were banished from the kingdom of Auradon and made to live in virtual imprisonment on the Isle of the Lost. The island is surrounded by a magical force field that keeps the villains and their descendants safely locked up and away from the mainland. Life on the island is dark and dreary. It is a dirty, decrepit place that’s been left to rot and forgotten by the world.
This holiday season, the fantastical imaginations of one family will twirl to life on Disney Junior with the launch of ‘Kate & Mim-Mim,’ a new animated series created by husband and wife duo, Scott and Julie Stewart, with the help of their own children’s creative fantasies. Based on their own daughter, ‘Kate & Mim-Mim’ tells the story of a feisty five-year-old who together with her toy rabbit Mim-Mim travels to the fantasy world of Mimiloo, where Mim-Mim comes alive as a larger-than-life playmate.
Along with recent casting news that Olivia Munn will be assuming the role of Mom /aka/ Captain Phoebe Callisto, Disney Junior has released a full trailer for ‘Miles from Tomorrowland,’ premiering in February 2015. You can find the new trailer embedded below.
Set in outer space, the series charts the missions of the Callisto family – 7-year-old Miles, big sister Loretta and their scientist parents Phoebe and Leo, who work for the Tomorrowland Transit Authority. Each episode features two 11-minute adventure-filled stories as Miles and his family explore strange new worlds, taking young viewers and their families on a journey that fuels kids’ natural interest in the universe, and at the same time reminding them that what matters most is what lies closer to home – the family bond.
