Things We Saw Today: Mulan Meets the Doctor

By Karen Hallion (Khallion on Etsy, where prints of this should be available soon). Now is a good time to get this Doctor Who/“I’ll Make a Man Out of You” mashup stuck in everyone’s heads. You’re welcome. (Chocolate & Cream Cake)

This Melisandre character poster was lagging behind the others from season three of Game of Thrones. (blastr)

  • A while back we posted a trailer for Knights of Badassdom, a LARP-themed comedy starring Peter Dinkage and Summer Glau that’s seemed to get no closer to an actual release despite having been in the can for over a year. Bleeding Cool has provided an explanation as to why: Wade Bradley, the CEO of Knights‘ production company, took the film from director Joe Lynch and made his own cut, even though that’s a violation of Lynch’s contract. Now Bradley’s shopping his version around to distributors against Lynch’s will (Bradley reportedly made “significant changes to the original story and concept”). I’m seething. That’s such an evil, evil thing to do. When I said I wanted to see the film, I didn’t mean like this.
  • It’s official: The extended edition of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will be out on DVD/Blu-ray before the theatrical release of the second Hobbit movie on December 13, 2013. (Bleeding Cool)

    How have I never seen that “Make a Man Out of You” mashup? So good.

  • Rebecca Pahle

    Isn’t it?

    I’d love to write a parody of the whole song, but I can’t figure out a substitute for Hun. :(

    That Rappe essay was really interesting. Thanks for finding it!

    Doctor Who/Mulan: “Fancy a kip over to see Aurora?”

  • TKS

    Much agreed. I had no idea that the Oz universe was so deep. Nor did I know about Baum. I feel ashamed.

    Agreed. I never even knew there was more than one Oz book! I also didn’t know how much of Wicked and its sequels was drawn from the originals. Interesting stuff.

    The same artist has done many Disney/Whovian mashups. I saw the Cinderella one on a Threadless tee (sold out!) but just now realize that they’ve done many variations:

    No Dana Scully?

  • Magic Xylophone

    She knows her forensics alright, but isn’t she more of a Field Agent than a scientist?

    Well, her whole job was to approach, assess, and explain the X-Files from a scientific point of view.
