It’s all the talk and I was trying to avoid pandering to the celebrity fiends (or I was at least hoping WDW would release some real photos – although Tom got the best ones from the looks of it), but I can’t resist this one. Extra has some great shots of Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes, Suri and Connor frolicking in the rose garden at the Magic Kingdom on Valentine’s Day – they even have Dumbo shots.

NYCC09: Disney Publishing Worldwide Panel

The panel began with Tashana Williams, a licensing manager, discussing the importance of the fab five to Disney in the comics industry and the longstanding relationship with Gemstone Publishing who holds the rights to the property in the United States (much to the chagrin of many of the audience) and will continue to do so for the forseeable future.
