Re: Today's Disney News from the front page...

I'll let Greg add the links to the news articles but the Disney-Fox merger was announced formally today. I never thought I'd see the day when The Simpsons would become a Disney asset!

Re: Star Wars Episode IX

Me too - I've watched the teaser which showed nothing in context.  I've seen the TV ads (can't avoid them) - but on the whole, I'm unspoiled.  Can't wait for Friday :)

Re: Coco

Lots of hate for the Frozen short.  It was originally meant to be an ABC-TV Christmas special but they decided to attach it to Coco.  They should have kept to their traditional 5-10 minute shorts and not put this up front. The problem they now have is that is has devalued the Frozen franchise - not ...

Re: Tokyo Expansion? Third Park?

I read somewhere they were thinking of making it Japan-themed to help attract more foreign tourists.  The current parks of definitely targeted at locals at the moment.  I guess we'll just have to wait until next year sometime to find out what is planned.

Re: Lauren’s Shanghai trip

Re: Coco + Olaf's Frozen Adventure

The Coco soundtrack is available in JB Hifi now and on iTunes.

I was surprised to see it in the shops - I haven't even seen any other merchandise for it yet!
