My Thoughts: Disney's Zootropolis

So I'll keep this short and sweet in order to avoid spoilers as best I can. First of all, I absolutely LOVED Zootropolis. Clearly the clever word play of 'Zootopia' is lost with the new UK title however, the sentiment is still there.

The plot revolves around our female protagonist, a bunny named Judy Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin) who, despite her cute and fluffy exterior is determined to become a part of Zootropolis' next generation of police officers. However, Judy gets caught up along the way in the scheming antics of the cunning fox, Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman) and the duo go on an 'tailspin' adventure to uncover the biggest scandal in Zootropolis history.

Update: Shanghai Disneyland's Enchanted Storybook Castle is revealed

After much excitement and high expectation surrounding it, Shanghai Disneyland have finally released their first night-time shot of the beautiful Enchanted Storybook Castle. Disney promise that this will be their largest and most impressive Castle to date.

By happy coincidence, my other half (who for the record, does not like Disney) is away the week of Zootopia's UK release so I was just planning on purchasing my cinema ticket for one when I noticed something peculiar on the Odeon website... Zootopia was not an option? However, there were plenty of showings for Zootropolis?

NEW: Disney Magic Kingdoms App

After the first announcement was made at the D23 Expo in the summer of 2015, finally almost a year on, the much anticipated Disney Magic Kingdoms mobile game has finally hit the app store!

Ten Disney Inspired LUSH Products

As an avid Disney fan and therefore, automatically a believer in True Love, it should hardly be surprising that I myself am fortunate enough to have two great loves:

1. Disney
2. LUSH Cosmetics

LUSH are probably my favourite retailer on the High Street at the moment and not only because their products are packed with so much natural goodness but because they do exactly what they say they will, look great and smell even better! So, in honour of my love of both Disney and LUSH, here are my Top Ten Disney-inspired* LUSH Products of all time. Enjoy!

1. Frozen Bath Bomb

'Do you wanna have a bath bomb? Do you wanna splash and play?', inspired by the success of Disney's animated classic Frozen, it really should come as no surprise that the movie would go on to inspire the creativity of the wonderful people at LUSH. Full of refreshing grapefruit and rose... and some sparkles too, this bath bomb is sure to brighten up even the frostiest of days.

Irregular Choice and Disney Collaboration

If the recent collabs between Disney and Vans haven't been quite eccentric enough for you, be sure to check out this quirky range of gorgeous Alice In Wonderland inspired footwear bought to us exclusively by Irregular Choice.

Exciting NEW Content from JK Rowling: Magic in North America

Following on from my post earlier this year regarding JK Rowling's revelation about International Wizarding Schools (you can read about that here) yesterday, it was announced that we will finally get a little taste of what life is like for Wizards in North America...

Many people were quite disappointed back in February when Rowling released her snippets about additional Wizarding Schools around the world due to the lack of information provided about North America and more specifically, its school Ilvermorny. Those people yesterday had their wishes well and truly granted.

BRAND NEW: Disney Updates and Finding Dory Trailer!

Hey everybody!

We have been very lucky this week with lots of exciting news from Disney including...

  • A first look at Rivers of Lighta brand new show coming to Walt Disney World's Animal Kingdom. The show, set to debut on 22nd April, will feature two storytellers who 'call forth' upon four mystical, animal spirit guides to lead audiences through the story. The show will take place in the Asia section of the park.
  • The announcement of a brand new Big Hero 6 TV Series which is set to launch in 2017 on Disney XD. I am particularly excited about this!
  • Guests have finally started to meet and greet with Kylo Ren at Walt Disney World's Star Wars Launch Bay. After reports in January, it's great to finally see the end result. There are lots of photos and videos on social media, so be sure to check this out!
And finally, perhaps the most anticipated piece of Disney News that we have received this week, we have finally got a trailer for Disney Pixar's Finding Dory. The trailer, which was released yesterday on The Ellen Show, depicts Dory (played by DeGeneres) on her quest to reunite with her estranged family. Tackling similar issues to it's predecessor, this movie is sure to tug at the heart strings as our leading lady struggles to come to terms with her apparent abandonment.
