Apparently this took a great deal of sifting through viral sites for the trailer to be unearthed. Thankfully though when the Internet wants something they don't stop until they get it and the result is said brand new Tron Legacy trailer in glorious high definition.

Disney lets loose that a Tron animated series is currently in the works.Disney lets loose that a Tron animated series is currently in the works.

Disney has announced that a Tron animated series is currently in development and will probably air soon after the release of the Tron: Legacy sequel. Also of note is that the series will be of the micro variety which means you'll be getting five minute episodes at first to see if you really care enough to watch thirty minute episodes.

Want some insight as to what the TRON sequel will actually be about?Want some insight as to what the TRON sequel will actually be about?

This review lets loose a ton of details about the overall plot of the movie from an early draft script (may not be final version) so those who don't want the movie spoiled for them best move their light cycle right along. The film is scheduled to hit theaters sometime in December.

Glad to see more of the plot and some new characters. Overall, this is starting to look like it will be a worthy succesor to the previous two movies. So yes, I'll be at the theaters on June 18th with the entire family this day. Hold my calls.

Marvel stockholders decide to go ahead and approve the Disney merger.Marvel stockholders decide to go ahead and approve the Disney merger.

Disney officially has the rights to over five thousand of your favorite Marvel comic book characters. You can expect to see most of these characters in the next Kingdom Hearts game or at the very least some kind of Disney versus Marvel Street Fighter type game (which actually sounds kind of cool come to think of it).

Another trailer for Toy Story 3 surfaces online.Another trailer for Toy Story 3 surfaces online.

This new trailer seems to be a mix of some new footage along with a bevy of clips from the older movies interspersed in there as well. The end result makes it kinda look like a fan-made trailer you'd see on YouTube.

To whoever is running The Muppets these days: more of this please. I guarantee that this video will make you smile - if it doesn't consult your doctor. And wow, look at that - you can even watch this video in glorious 1080p resolution.

Modern ruins through the non-ancient eye of Photoshop.Modern ruins through the non-ancient eye of Photoshop.

I've always thought that those monolith objects near the EPCOT entrance / Spaceship Earth looked quite morbid. The first entry in this Photoshop contest just confirms it all the more.

Roger Rabbit sequel apparently in the works.Roger Rabbit sequel apparently in the works.

I'm guessing that this sequel would probably feature an up to date cast utilizing some of Disney's newer characters which range from Pixar's catalogue all the way over to the newly acquired Marvel library.  Can't be any worse than Looney Tunes: Back in Action, can it? Wait, maybe it can.

Disney offering refund on Baby Einstein videos that didn't turn children into geniuses.Disney offering refund on Baby Einstein videos that didn't turn children into geniuses.

Turns out that these videos didn't really make a whole lot of difference on a child's intellect by any means. Who would have guessed? Every household is eligible for a $15.99 refund for up to four DVDs.

A day at Disney World through the magic art of tilt-shift video.A day at Disney World through the magic art of tilt-shift video.

Neat little video for those who happen to like Disney / artsy effects every now and again. There are some spots in the video where the effect doesn't quite cut it but I'll give them an A for effort this first time around.

Disney's new initiative is called 'Keychest' and you just might be able to have your movies delivered via some nifty cloud-computing concepts. They also hope that the initiative will prolong the relevancy of DVDs and Blu-ray so don't go throwing away all of your discs just yet.

The new ride over at EPCOT called 'The Sum of all Thrills' lets users create their own roller coaster track digitally. You can then ride on your newly created track virtually. You'll probably want to pick up a fast pass for the line.

The art style looks fantastic as usual. I'm really impressed as to how they managed to attain a better sense of realism while sticking to the original Toy Story atmosphere. See you in line for tickets next summer.
