Hello everyone! The Jungle Book is being done up in a non-animated version to debut on April 15th of next year. It features a star-studded cast, including Bill Murray, Ben Kingsley, Scarlett Johansson, and Christopher Walken, among others! In looking at the trailer below, it appears that the movie may be a little darker than the original 1967 animated version — and it intrigues me to no end. This is the latest in a series of re-makes of classic Disney movies, so I’m excited to see what it will entail. The official US trailer is embedded below, so please have a look at it when you get a moment. It’s not too long, so how about right now?
I’m curious to hear what you think — do you think this will be as good a movie as some of the others, such as Cinderella, Maleficent, and so forth, or do you think Disney has gone too far and made too many of these remakes? Also, which of the Disney remakes has been your favorite so far? Let me know what you think, and thanks for stopping by!
Happy New Year, everyone! On this, the last day of 2014, I am taking a moment to share with you some of my favorite memories from the year — in picture format! If you like looking at Disney photos like I do, this post is absolutely for you! Have a peek, and thanks! As always, a big thank you goes out to all of you for stopping by, for reading, for sharing, for commenting, and for choosing My Dreams of Disney as one of your places to go for your Disney fix. Now, here is our Year In Review. I hope you enjoy! All of the images you see below are configured so that if you click on the picture, it will open the post that the picture is from.
January saw us looking fondly at loved ones that we had recently lost — in our case, Cindy’s Uncle Bob. Suddenly, the question “Do you want to build a snowman?” took on more meaning…
In February, we had a post about our favorite Disney memories. In this case, we were looking at our favorite Disney memories from 2011!
In March, we started our 100 Days til Disney countdown – our look at 100 things we wanted to explore on our upcoming trip.
In April, I wrote one of my favorite Magical Blogorail posts — a comparison between New Orleans Square and Liberty Square, and which one I like best.
In May, one of the things we counted down on was ways that we can celebrate Disney Magic.
In June, Sophie wrote a post about a special Circle of Life video that her band class did near the end of school. Have a look, and enjoy!
In July, we started a short lived series called #DisneyMusicMonday, with a look at the incredible Julie Andrews and the music of Mary Poppins.
In August, we, along with the rest of the world, mourned the loss of Robin Williams, who was the Genie in Aladdin.
In September, we wrote about the ways that Disney can help us deal with grief for the Magical Blogorail.
In October, we hit a bit of a blogging rut — the words just wouldn’t come out of the keyboard! Despite that, we wrote about education at Liberty Square for the Magical Blogorail.
In November, we celebrated the birthday of our favorite Mouse couple — Mickey & Minnie!
We started off December by remembering Walt Disney, who was born on December 5th, 1901.
We continued the month by writing about 5 facts about the Pirates of the Caribbean that will impress your friends!
Lastly, we wrote about how Pixar short films (and Disney ones, too) are the best thing since sliced bread!
I hope that our year in Pictures has brought enjoyment to you, and a good reflection on some of the things that we have done this year. It has been a full year, full of joy, fun, laughter, exciting Disney memories, and wonder, but there has also been sadness. My prayer for each and every one of you is that this year is better now than it was when the year started, and that your 2015 is full of happiness, joy, Peace, wonder, prosperity, and love. Please be safe if you are traveling, and remember, if you enjoy some adult beverages, please do not drink and drive.
