And if you take a close look, you’ll see that they aren’t only covered in dyed sugar. The churros also include edible glitter and star sprinkles to make them a really special treat for the “Star Wars” fans.

People cannot get enough of the sweet surprise treat available at the park.

May the 4th be with you ?#may4th #starwars #maytheforcebewithyou #lightsaberchurros #disneylandchurros

According to Eater, the churros made their appearance during Star Wars Day, May the 4th, and instantly became a social media phenomenon. Eater also reports that the Disney PR team has confirmed that the churros will be available to guests through the end of May.

The churros are pitting friends against each other.


Some have pledged their allegiance to the rebellion.

Others to the dark side.

And lots of people can’t choose just one, so they go with both.

may the fourth be with you ✨ #fakestarwarsfan #onlyhereforthecoolchurros #lightsaberchurros

Disney Just Announced That We Won’t Have To Wait For The Pandemic To End In Order To Watch Mulan— Thank The Ancestors!

After months of delays and waiting, Disney has announced that Mulan fans will no longer have to wait for a major theatrical release to see the live-action version of the animated classic. On Tuesday the Walt Disney Company revealed that the film will no longer seek a major theatrical release and that the blockbuster’s debut will take place on the subscription streaming service, Disney+.

To see the movie, customers will need to pay an additional $29.99 on top of the cost of the monthly subscription for Disney+

“In order to meet the needs of consumers during this unpredictable period, we thought it was important to find alternative ways to bring this exceptional family-friendly film to them in a timely manner,” Disney CEO Bob Chapek explained in a statement according to Variety. “We see this as an opportunity to bring this incredible film to a broad audience currently unable to go to movie theaters.”

The company has said that it plans to release Mulan in theaters in areas where Disney+ is not available to audiences.

According to Variety, “The decision to put Mulan on premium video-on-demand further emphasizes the studio’s increased reliance on Disney Plus at a time when most of their business — from theme parks and cruises to movie theaters and retail stores — have been crippled by the pandemic. Research, Chapek says, suggests that bringing a high-profile release like Mulan to homes “will act as a fairly large stimulus to sign up for Disney Plus.”

Mulan had been originally scheduled for a theatrical debut on March 27 and was meant to be Disney’s biggest theatrical release for the year.

Disney shelled out a $200 million budget and in early March the studio set up a lavish red carpet premiere at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles. Days later, the COVID-19 pandemic forced Disney to postpone the movie’s release. The movie’s debut was then pushed back several times before Disney announced last week that they would indefinitely remove it from the release calendar. Fortunately, they’ve changed their mind and Mulan will debut on the streamer’s new platform on September 4, 2020.

Disney’s latest version of Mulan stars actress Yifei Liu as the titular character based on the legend of a female Chinese warrior who disguises herself and takes her father’s place as a soldier.

Elena Of Avalor Is Going To Be The Queen And We Love To See The Glow Up

“Elena of Avalor” is coming to an end. The show offered people the first Latina Disney princess and that kind of representation is so vital and so important. Three seasons later, the show is coming to an end and the final show is going to change everything.

“Elena of Avalor” changed representation in Disney and it was a long time coming.

Elena gave Disney fans their first Latina Disney princess. For years, Disney was facing pressure to start to include more characters of color. “The Princess and The Frog” was Disney’s first answer to that call and “Elena of Avalor” came after. Finally seeing someone who represented Latinos was a reality.

The final season is going to be the longest so that Elena could get the finale she deserves.

“It has been a tremendous honor for me to bring Disney’s first Latina princess to the screen,” Gerber told The Hollywood Reporter. “Everyone involved with Elena of Avalor, from the creative team to the unbelievable cast and crew, felt the responsibility to get this right. We created the character of Elena with the hope that she would be a role model, not just for young Latina girls watching, but for all children to be able to see what a true leader looks like.”

This show was so impactful, far beyond just the children that watched it.

“From the beginning, Elena’s story arc has been that she would one day become queen,” Gerber told The Hollywood Reporter. “With the series finale, the creative team has been able to bring Elena’s story to the thrilling conclusion that we always envisioned. I can’t wait for viewers to see the final chapter in Elena’s epic adventure.”

Elena’s legacy within the Latino community is going to last forever, that’s for sure.

From all of the “Elena of Avalor” fans, thank you. This show gave us a chance to see our cultures reflected and celebrated with the Disney magic behind it. What a special moment in entertainment this is.
