Okay, okay, I’ll admit that I was disappointed to see that a promised Hunger Games/Mulan video didn’t involve people’s heads getting chopped off. But it’s still clever, so you should watch it. And then speculate on which district each Disney Princess is from and how well they would do in the games.
If you only vaguely remember the song and it’s place in the movie, I’ve embedded the original below just for you.READ MORE

This scene, from the upcoming second season of ABC’s Once Upon a Time, isn’t quite what you’d think. It features Mulan (played by Jamie Chung) and Aurora (Sarah Bolger) not arguing over who gets the Prince but who gets to save the Prince. Sunday cannot come fast enough.

Fans of ABC’s hit fairy tale series, Once Upon a Time, have been eagerly anticipating Season 2 thanks to a cliffhanger ending to Season 1. We heard about the casting of Mulan and Sleeping Beauty but now we get to see them for the first time in this new promo (Mulan looks particularly epic). Plus a bonus peak at Captain Hook and all your favorite returning characters. Once Upon a Time returns to ABC September 30th!

History: It’s chock full of colorful characters and crazy random happenstances. But more often than not, when a historical character makes it to the big screen it’s in the form of a cookie-cutter biopic. What gives? History is dynamic and exciting! As a history geek, I’d much rather see Napoleon fighting wizards and fairy kings than some boring Oscar bait biopic on the (actually not short!) Emperor. Here are ten examples from TV and film of history geekery done right. Your favorite not make it to the list? There’s a historical character (*coughArthurConanDoylecough*) you really want to show up on Doctor Who? Want to defend Anastasia? Get thee to the comments.READ MORE

We’ve spotlighted a few of Amy Mebberson’s Pocket Princesses on the site before but we figured it was about time to give them their own post since it’s been brought to our attention the little gals have to go on hiatus for a while. If you’ve never seen them, you’re in for a treat. Hit the jump for some of our favorites!READ MORE

Final Fantasy X-2 introduced a new wrinkle into the famous RPG series: instead of being handed a selection of characters with set classes to choose a three person fighting team with, players were handed exactly three characters (Rikku, Yuna, and Paine) and could choose which class roles they wanted those characters to play at any moment, simply by changing their outfits. It was also the first FF game to feature an all female main cast.
And what with the fanart trend of giving reinterpreting Disney princesses, and the existing presence of the official Final Fantasy/Disney crossover games Kingdom Hearts, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that xsKiRtZx’s drawings of Disney princesses and other lead female characters as Final Fantasy X-2 classes are a pretty cool combination.READ MORE
