For Her Make-A-Wish, She Chose Disney World Over Her One Direction Crush So Her Family Could Experience It With Her

Daisy is a 7-year-old from Houston, who, according to E!, was diagnosed at birth with a form of Dwarfism called Achondroplasia and has had to deal with surgeries to her limbs, head and back ever since. These struggles led a nurse from Children’s Health in Dallas to nominate her for Make-A-Wish.

Daisy, a 7-year-old with Achondroplasia, was nominated for Make-A-Wish and said her wish was to go to Walt Disney World to meet her hero, Belle.

Daisy may be a tiny tot, but she’s got a big heart. Given the option between meeting her favorite One Direction singer and going to Disney World, she chose Disney so her entire family could enjoy this experience together.

After meeting and speaking with Daisy for a bit, Belle had the great idea of giving Daisy a personalized tour.

Literally can’t tell the difference, just two Disney princesses walking.

That’s when the tears came from everyone in a 20 foot radius.

And they lived happily ever after… But wait, there’s more!

The internet, being what it is, has a Twitter campaign going to get Louis Tomlinson from One Direction to meet Daisy.

We hope she gets her cake and gets to eat it too!

Disney’s ‘Lilo & Stich,’ Is Going To Be Made Into A Live-Action Film!

Disney’s ‘Lilo & Stich,’ Is Going To Be Made Into A Live-Action Film!

Welcome back, Disney ohana!

Whether it feels like the release of Disney’s Lilo & Stitch happened just years ago, or was a lifetime away, you’re in for a real treat! The 2002 American animated science fiction comedy-drama movie which was nominated for Best Animated Feature at the 75th Academy Awards is getting the remake treatment. This time, with a pretty human, pretty live-action ohana.

Including perhaps, the Crazy Rich Asians director Jon M. Chu.

According to reports by Entertainment Weekly and The Hollywood Reporter, Chu is in talks to help create the upcoming live-action remake.

The new film is being produced by Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich of Rideback. Both producers worked on the live-action version of Aladdin which starred Will Smith. Currently, Disney has a draft of the film which was written by Mike Van Waes. However, the entertainment company is looking for another writer to help Chu to develop the draft further.

It is unknown whether the new film will be released in theaters or on Disney +.

The original animated film was written and directed by Chris Sanders and Dean DeBlois and narrates the story of a lonely Hawaiian girl named Lilo. After mistaking an alien who actually is a genetic experiment for a dog, Lilo adopts him as her new friend and member of her “ohana” which only includes Lilo and her older sister Nani.

Chu might just be the perfect pick for Disney’s latest live-action remake.

Earlier this year, Chu was tapped to direct and executive produce the Willow series. This past year, he directed In The Heights, the movie adaptation of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s hit Broadway musical, which will see its debut in 2021.

Of course, the new remake is hardly anything new for Disney. The studio is going full-steam ahead when it comes to remaking its classic animated films in live-action. Earlier this year, fans saw the release of Mulan. This summer, scheduled to be released May 28, 2021, the studio will debut the film Cruela, a remake of the 101 Dalmatians classic. The film will focus on the early years of the dalmatian-wearing villain Cruella de Vil. Emma Stone will star as the title character and the film is set in the punk rock era of 1970s London.

Earlier this year, Disney announced that it would remake The Little Mermaid, which was originally based on the Hans Christian Andersen tale. The announcement stirred up quite a bit of excitement when it was revealed that she would star Halle Bailey as Ariel, Melissa McCarthy as Ursula, and Awkwafina as Scuttle.

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.
