  2. Things We Saw Today: One Person Cosplays Every Johnny Depp Character Because Why Not?

    Captain Ichabod Scissorhands at your service.

    Somebody went to incredibly great lengths to get all the costume pieces together to cosplay as every Johnny Depp character. At least that difficulty was probably balanced out by the fact that 90% of them are basically the same. *Ducks and covers.*

  3. The Cast of Broadway’s The Lion King Give NYC Subway Riders a Surprise Performance [VIDEO]

    But the left the giraffes at home.

    As anyone who rides the New York City subway system knows, you never know what you're going to get on your daily ride. And while "musical performances" of all kinds take place regularly on subway cars (whether riders want them to or not), a Broadway performance is certainly a nice change of pace. Take a look at what happened when the cast of The Lion King took a little break from their stage to perform "Circle of Life" on the subway.

  4. Today In Hollywood Remakes, Reboots, and Spinoffs: The Lion King, The Magic School Bus, and Sonic the Hedgehog

    Things to Do With Your Kids

    It's taken a few years longer than I expected for Hollywood to realize "Hey, we haven't done a live action/CG hybrid Sonic the Hedgehog movie yet!" But it happened. I wonder what the furries, who infamously comprise a significant percentage of the Sonic fandom, have to say about this?

  5. It’s Never Too Early to Start the Weekend With Disney-Inspired Cocktails

    What is a weekend?

    Yes, Thursday morning before 11am is the perfect time to bring up some potent potables based on children's movies, I can't imagine who would object to this. After all,

  6. Artist Makes Your Childhood Icons Twisted and Nightmare-Inducing

    Things to Do With Your Kids

    Or not, in some cases. We know from Sylvain Sarrailh's previous set of illustrations that, while he's good at reimagining childhood favorites in such a way as to make them completely terrifying (Ariel), a lot of his illustrations are just... pretty damned awesome, full-stop. To wit: His take on The Legend of Zelda. I don't want to spoil it for you, but it's the first one behind the cut, and you definitely want to see it. (via: Kotaku)

    Ingonyama nengw' enamabala!

    What's this? The Pet Collective released a video of adorable kittens reenacting the plot of The Lion King as narrated by equally adorable children? Complete with stuffed animals and crayon drawn set pieces? D'aww, you shouldn't have. We're not going to get any more work done for the rest of the day because of kittens.

  10. Disney Characters Catch ‘Em All In These Clever Pokémon Trainer Illustrations

    Together At Last

    Artist Krista Nicholson's bright, exciting illustrations of Disney characters are almost too cute. Nicholson has definitely managed to slip some perfect pairing in there, from Vanellope and Jigglypuff to the adorable, but destructive, pairing of Stitch and Pikachu. Even Magikarp finds a Disney character to swim around with! You can see more of Nicholson's art, featuring more Disney characters and Pokémon, at her Deviantart account.

  12. The Perils of Being in 3D: This Version of The Lion King’s Hilarious

    For people of a certain age, there's no denying that the seminal scenes from Disney's The Lion King had an impact on their childhood. Granted, not everyone was a child during the '90s, but those that were know the sting of Mufasa's final scene all too well. It's sad, and depressing, but rarely if ever has the phrase "spooky in a surreal way" been added to that mix. Someone somewhere considered this an oversight and made a video to solve this problem.

  14. Old Canadian Men Caught Singing “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” in Coffee Shop [Video]

    Ever been to a Tim Hortons a few hours before closing time? Things can get real seedy real quick within the seemingly innocuous restaurant. Among a list of other things to be wary of after 9:00 pm, running into a gang of rowdy geriatrics singing Disney tunes is definitely not a situation you'd want to find yourself in, especially if you're alone. Whoever captured this footage from a Tim Hortons in Canada was fortunate to get away from the rambunctious bunch  -- terrorizing palpably distressed patrons with their rendition of Elton John's "Can You Feel the Love Tonight?" from The Lion King -- with their life and camera. All we want to know is, why wasn't anybody calling the police?

  16. These Lion King Bloopers Will Warm Even The Coldest Of Hearts

    Awwwwww

    Truth be told, it probably takes hours upon hours to record the script for a 2 hour animated film. Ever wonder what happens between takes that make the final cut? Here's a video of Lion King bloopers that were recorded and later animated for our enjoyment -- in other words, here is possibly the best thing you'll see on the Internet today. You can thank me later. (via Panther Grace.)

  17. The Dark Knight Rises Trailer Reenacted By Hot Dogs. You Heard Us. Hot Dogs.

    what is this I don't even

    We here at The Mary Sue are huge fans of the fan trailers that have come out of Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises. Sure, there are a lot of talented people out there who've edited together bits from all three films to create super-trailers but what we really love are the ones where individuals recreate the trailer using something else. For instance, there was a LEGO, stop-motion version of the trailer and not one but two mash-ups with Batman: The Animated Series. Oh, and let's not forget the epic Lion King mash-up. But here is something I've never seen before and never in my life expected to see. It's the TDKR trailer reenacted by ground up meat in casings. Yes, hot dogs. And it was created by a group called Sausage Party. Then again, I never thought I'd see a hot dog eating Batman either, but that happened. Enjoy Commissioner Gordon's mustache, Catwoman's hair, and about twenty other awesome moments. (via Topless Robot)

  18. Watch Frank Welker Imitate Lions Into a Garbage Can For The Lion King [Video]

    IRL

    You know Frank Welker. Or, at least, you know his voice ... well, at least you know his characters, because he can do so many things to his voice that he can play so many different characters that have spanned over four decades. From Fred Jones on Scooby-Doo to Nibbler (and Seymour the dog) on Futurama, Welker has provided the voices of so many people and animals that he's become one of the highest-grossing actors in Hollywood whose face you've rarely ever seen. But I'll bet you had no idea he made the real-sounding lion noises in The Lion King, and you would not be alone. Did you also think they just somehow recorded lions roaring? Well, it was Frank Welker all along. Here is behind-the-scenes footage. I'm fairly convinced that Frank Welker might be all of the voices. (via io9)

  19. Simba Plays Batman In The Lion King Rises

    Of Course!

    Be prepared, everything about this parody is perfect. I love The Lion King and I love Batman but I never imagined I'd see them together and certainly not like this. I don't even know how or why YouTube user MovieMaestroTen (Brad Hansen) thought combine the two but we are so, so glad he did. I'm not ashamed to say Michael Caine doing the voice of Zazu almost made me lose it. Watch and be amazed. (via The Awesomer)
