Personalized video from Disneyland's MySummerNightastic.comThe Disneyland Resort has been consistently knocking them out of the park lately with its web sites and mini-sites offering fun interactivity in all new ways.

Following the bleeding edge World Of Color Creator, with which we were the first to share the news (although perhaps a bit early), the Disneyland Resort now goes slightly more event generic with the Summer Nightastic personalized video creator at MySummerNightastic.com.

Video: Disney Characters Perform Diski Dance in Honor of the 2010 World Cup

In honor of the 2010 World Cup coming up in just a couple of days, our beloved Disney friends (mostly at the lead of Buzz Lightyear of Star Command) boogie down to the diski dance, the South African tradition that gets the world moving. Composed of moves with names that include the juggle, header, the bridge and table mountain, diski (which is slang for soccer) is based loosely on the moves young South Africans perform when practising the sport.

New Trailer for Disney’s ‘Sorcerer’s Apprentice:’ More F/X Than Ever!

It’s hard to imagine given what we’ve already seen from the new Walt Disney Studios and Jerry Bruckheimer joint The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, loosely based on the Fantasia segment of the same name that there could be even more F/X to ogle.

Truth is though, most of the F/X shots you’ll find in the new trailer have been seen in previously released clips, but the trailer now pays special attention to them, offering us more of the amazing sights the film has to offer. Of special note is the Wall Street Bull that temporarily takes over the Bowling Green area of Manhattan, the initial insect-ized appearance of Maxim Horvath (Alfred Molina) and — of course — the homage to the film’s inspiration, the quintessential mop scene that results when the apprentice Dave (Jay Baruchel) defies the wizard Balthazar’s (Nicolas Cage) strict rule to never use magic as a shortcut.

First Look: Theatrical Poster for Disney’s ‘Secretariat’

'Secretariat' Theatrical Poster from Walt Disney StudiosWalt Disney Studios has just sent us this first look at this gorgeous poster for its upcoming release Secretariat starring Diane Lane and John Malkovich.

Based on the remarkable true story, Secretariat chronicles the spectacular journey of the 1973 Triple Crown winner.  Housewife and mother Penny Chenery (Lane) agrees to take over her ailing father’s Virginia-based Meadow Stables, despite her lack of horse-racing knowledge.  Against all odds, Chenery—with the help of veteran trainer Lucien Laurin (Malkovich)—manages to navigate the male-dominated business, ultimately fostering the first Triple Crown winner in 25 years and what may be the greatest racehorse of all time.

‘Sorcerer’s Apprentice’ Character Poster #3: Veronica (The Sorceress)

Sorcerer's Apprentice: VeronicaThe character poster parade for The Sorcerer’s Apprentice from Walt Disney Studios and Jerry Bruckheimer marches on this week, today presenting magical love interest Veronica (Monica Belluci) who eventually proves to be twice the woman she appears to be.

Veronica is a sorceress who has had the great fortune of being loved by Balthazar Blake—and the misfortune of being loved by Maxim Horvath.  “Balthazar and Veronica are willing to do everything for their love,” says Bellucci, “and at the same time they’re two fighters.  Horvath, who, like them, was a disciple of Merlin, also falls in love with Veronica.  She rejects him for Balthazar, and because of that he betrays them by aligning himself with Morgana.  It’s a beautiful and powerful story about love, jealousy and vengeance.”
