The official Disney Parks blog today announced that Disney’s Frozen will find a permanent home at the Norway pavilion in Walt Disney World’s Epcot in the future, replacing Maelstrom, which had been in place since the pavilion was first added in 1988. According to the news, the new attraction ‘takes our guests to Arendelle and immerse them in many of their favorite moments and music from the film.’ Anna and Elsa, who currently offer a meet and greet at the Magic Kingdom after having started at the Norway pavilion, will resume meet and greets at the new attraction when it is constructed. As of now, there is no announced timeframe for Maelstrom’s closure and replacement.
Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has announced Planes: Fire & Rescue will be available to own on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital on November 4, 2014.
This heart-pumping comedy-adventure features a dynamic crew of elite aircraft devoted to protecting historic Piston Peak National Park from raging wildfire. When world famous air racer Dusty Crophopper learns that he may never race again, he must shift gears and is launched into the world of aerial firefighting. Dusty joins forces with a team of veteran firefighters and together, they battle a massive fire and Dusty learns what it takes to become a true hero.
Earlier this summer, the official Disney Parks blog announced that the former Yankee Trader shop located in Magic Kingdom’s Liberty Square would close to become a gift shop specializing in spooktacular odds and ends paying homage to the Haunted Mansion.
Now, thanks to a filing with the Orange County comptroller’s office, it looks like we might have learned the name of the shop too. Filed by Walt Disney Imagineering, the notice of commencement enlists Sign Producers, Inc. to create and install signage for ‘Memento Mori.’
GameMill Entertainment has assembled the heroes from Disney’s upcoming movie Big Hero 6 for an action-adventure platforming video game of the same name. Developed by 1st Playable Productions, this new Big Hero 6 title will invite fans to explore the fast-paced action and lighthearted humor of the movie on the Nintendo 3DS™ and Nintendo DS™ handheld systems later this year. Now available for pre-order.
Set after the events of the film, the game follows robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada and his like-minded friends turned heroes — Baymax, GoGo Tomago, Wasabi, Honey Lemon and Fred — as they attempt to save the city of San Fransokyo from a battlebot invasion. The adventurous gameplay is brought to life with vibrant comic-style storytelling that gives players control of the stars of the film in this action-packed combat platformer.
