  2. 1946 Walt Disney Menstruation Animation Tells Us We’re Ok Just The Way We Are

    Bloody Good Fun

    No, this video from 1946 isn't perfect as far as feminism goes but I have to say, I'm surprised to find it so...not 1946? Though I guess I'm even more surprised Walt Disney Productions made a video about our periods at all.

    Walt Disney World's Epcot International Food & Wine Festival is happening right now and while there are countless delectable items to eat, you won't be able to get your grubby hands on these.

  5. Disney Acquires Lucasfilm; Promises Star Wars VII in 2015; Lucas Passes “To a New Generation of Filmmakers”

    what is this I don't even

    Look, I was expecting to be reeling from a hurricane this morning. I wasn't expecting to hit the end of my work day with the news that Disney now controls all of its own properties, those of Marvel comics, and those of Lucasfilm. But it's true. As confirmed by Reuters and several legitimate business sources, Disney has acquired Lucasfilm, and with Lucasfilm the Star Wars franchise. They're also promising Star Wars Episode 7 by 2015, the same year as The Avengers 2 and Warner Bros. putative Justice League.

  6. ‘Mary Poppins’ Production Biopic is a Go, Emma Thompson is P.L. Travers

    Officially Official

    Ms. Poppins and her umbrella are getting some serious mileage, of late. Hot on the chimney-top stomping heels of a hit Broadway translation, the Walt Disney Co is putting semi-biopic Saving Mr. Banks onto the slate for next year. Yesterday marked the start of production on the 60s period piece, which will chronicle Walt Disney's 20-year odyssey to obtain the screen rights to P.L. Travers' books and character, focusing on the tension between the author and the company's founder during the making of the classic film. In the author's corner is the immeasurable Emma Thompson, and in Disney's, none other than Tom Hanks. Paul Giamatti, Colin Farrell, and Jason Schwartzman round out the cast, though IMDB has no listing yet for who's on deck to play Julie Andrews.

  8. This 1950s Walt Disney Animation Explores How Cats Went From Gods To Devils

    It's A World of Laughter A World of Tears

    This delightful animation was part of a weekly hour-long television program Disney put together for ABC back in 1954 in exchange for their help building Disneyland. Youtuber Disneytv4me writes, "As a result, the television show was also originally named Disneyland. The anthology series has since gone through a number of name changes over the years: Walt Disney Presents, Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color, The Wonderful World of Disney, Disney's Wonderful World, Walt Disney, The Disney Sunday Movie, and The Magical World of Disney. The series spanned an incredible 54 years—13 seasons of which were hosted by Walt Disney, himself." Here now, for your enjoyment, is a piece they did on the history of cats. (via Scott Weinberg)
