According to Variety golden haired movie star Reese Witherspoon is attached to both star and produce a new live-action Tinker Bell film. The project that is still just in development will be called “Tink” and will be based on the classic novel “Peter Pan” but put the tiny pixie in focus instead.

Witherspoon will produce the project together with her producing partner Bruna Papandrea but so far their is no word on when the project will go into production.

This is yet another addition to Disney’s future live-action lineup with previously announced movies like “Beauty and the Beast” and “Dumbo” in the works. Disney also recently saw great success with their live-action remake of the classic tale of Cinderella and it comes as no surprise that more live-action remakes are to interest for the company.

The live-action remake of “Beauty and the Beast” started their production just last month and stars such as Emma Watson and Dan Stevens are starring in the movie expected to come out March 2017.  Read more about it HERE

Paint the Night parade premieres for Disneyland 60th anniversary, illuminating the park with brightly glowing floats

Paint the Night parade premieres for Disneyland 60th anniversary, illuminating the park with brightly glowing floats

Disney’s classic Main Street Electrical Parade has joined the 21st century with the debut of the new Paint the Night parade at Disneyland. Featuring stunningly bright LED lighting throughout, the Paint the Night parade glows in ways the park has seen.

Each costume and float shines in rainbows of colors, changing in sync with each other and to the beat of the toe-tapping score. Though the new parade features nods to its classic predecessor, Paint the Night stands on its own as a high-tech version that retains all the character Disney is known for.

Watch a full video of the Paint the Night parade debut below:

Covering classic and contemporary Disney films, Paint the Night features fun new representations of many favorite franchises. Tangled, Cars, and Frozen are among the most recent while The Little Mermaid, Cinderella, Toy Story, and Monsters Inc are equally prominent. Each float that passes by has inventive new ways of featuring colorful displays, many of which are hypnotizing in their unique motions. Among the most amazing are the Mack truck’s 3D array of lights, Sorcerer Mickey’s colorful spinning sculpture, and Tinker Bell seemingly floating through the sky.

Naturally, Anna, Elsa, and Olaf attract a lot of attention, especially on their new float representing Elsa’s ice palace:

Paint the Night brings a familiar Disney feel but with many contemporary twists. It’s easily the most eye-catching nighttime parade around with enough surprising and impressive effects to require multiple viewings to fully appreciate. In short, it’s simply fun and won’t disappoint any guest as one of two incredible new nighttime entertainment options to round out a day at the park.

Disneyland Forever fireworks dazzle with spectacular pyrotechnics, projections for Diamond anniversary celebration

Disneyland Forever fireworks dazzle with spectacular pyrotechnics, projections for Diamond anniversary celebration

There’s no doubting Disneyland is the current king of nighttime spectaculars.

For the park’s 60th anniversary, the new Disneyland Forever fireworks show debuted tonight, leaving every viewer completely dazzled by the pyrotechnic display. But the show features much more than just bursts in the sky, combining beautiful new music from Richard Sherman with colorful dancing projections across both Main Street USA and Sleeping Beauty Castle along with many more special effects.

Watch the full show in the video below:

Featuring a perfect mix of tributes with a bit of animation-driven comedy and upbeat entertainment, Disneyland Forever packs in the full range of emotions, leaving guests stunned when it ends. It’s sensory overload in the best way as honeycombs, bubbles, and dancing monkeys (to name a few) fill Main Street USA buildings, snow falls from overhead, flames erupt around Sleeping Beauty Castle, and Nemo swims through the sky – all while beautiful fireworks explode. There’s exactly too much to look at, requiring multiple visits to take it all in… and that’s even ignoring the fact that different projections are shown on the Fantasmic fountains, Matterhorn mountain, and It’s a Small World facade too.

It’s worth sticking around after the show ends too to hear Richard Sherman’s new “Kiss Goodnight” song performed beautifully:

Disneyland Forever will surely be performed well past the end of the 60th anniversary celebration, which currently has no end date announced. Redefining the nighttime spectacular, this new fireworks show will no doubt live up to its name and stick around the park, delighting onlookers for many years to come.
