It’s been a monstrous year for NASCAR racer Jimmie Johnson who will be heading to Delaware this weekend after recently helping distribute supplies to victims of the Oklahoma tornadoes. Johnson will be racing to break records at the Sprint Cup’s Dover International Speedway, aka ‘The Monster Mile.’ When it comes to the Sprint Cup, the future NASCAR Hall of Famer has at least tied, if not holds all the records at all seven tracks and this weekend could make Johnson Dover’s winningest driver yet.

Ever since college-bound Mike Wazowski (voice of Billy Crystal) was a little monster, he has dreamed of becoming a Scarer — and he knows better than anyone that the best Scarers come from Monsters University. But during his first semester at MU, Mike’s plans are derailed when he crosses paths with hotshot James P. Sullivan, ‘Sulley’ (voice of John Goodman), a natural-born Scarer. The pair’s out-of-control competitive spirit gets them both kicked out of the University’s elite Scare Program. To make matters worse, they realize they will have to work together, along with an odd bunch of misfit monsters, if they ever hope to make things right.

It’s then that the two discover that they have very different approaches to the art of scaring.

Hundreds of fans gathered early this morning at the Magic Kingdom theme park in Walt Disney World to celebrate the induction of Princess Merida from Disney/Pixar’s Brave into the Disney Princess Royal Court. An honor bestowed to just ten before her, Merida arrived at Cinderella Castle in style atop her faithful steed Angus before receiving the crown from none other than her own mother, Queen Elinor, who made an exceptionally rare appearance. The pair were joined by the other members of the Disney Princess Royal Court along with emcee U.S. Gymnastics 2-time Olympic champion, Gabby Douglas, who was joined on stage by her own mother, Natalie Hawkins.
Tomorrow morning, May 11, 2013, Disney Consumer Products will officially welcome Merida into its Disney Princess line of products with a celebration fit for — well, a princess. The event will take place at 9:30 am ET at Cinderella Castle in the Magic Kingdom at the Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida as part of the Limited Time Magic campaign. Merida will become the 11th princess in the royal family and is expected to be joined on stage by the existing set of ten in a rare opportunity. Rumors indicate a possible even rarer appearance by Merida’s mum herself, Queen Elinor, just in time for Mother’s Day.
