Pixar Fest Is Happening At Disneyland And All Fans Can Talk About Is The Magic That Is ‘Coco’

Disneyland and Disney California Adventure launched ‘Pixar Fest’ April 13 to celebrate the magic of Pixar classics. The festival celebrating all things Pixar and animated will be going on till Sept. 3 so you have a chance to see the festivities for yourself. Of course the classics like “Toy Story,” “Up” and “Finding Nemo,” are on full display but fans are really digging the “Coco” decorations all over the park.

“Coco” fans have all summer to check out their favorite cartoon characters in Disneyland and Disney California Adventure.

Children (and adults) can visit the park to see their favorites take over the park from parades to shows to a nightly light show on Cinderella’s castle. It is all there.

The “Coco” portion of Pixar Fest’s “Together Forever – A Pixar Nighttime Spectacular” turns the parks into a “Coco” wonderland.

As you can see in the video, the loved ones in the underworld walk along the path with the songs filling the air.

Disneyland’s Main Street U.S.A. gets turned into a colonial plaza in Mexico, with papel picado banners and flower petals visually displayed onto the facades of the shops and buildings.

Dapper skeletons provide as much awe for Miguel from the film as they do for this fan.

The videos on social media is likely to give everyone serious jealousy since they can’t be there for the show.

SOUND ?!! His audible gasp is EVERYTHING. ☺ ☺ ☺ 

Photo opps for that new selfie upload have also been placed around the park, including one with Miguel’s white wooden guitar, as well as his friends Héctor and Dante.

It’s like no one will be able to tell the difference.

This fan came to show off her relationship goals.

Don’t worry, people are confirming that Disneyland has the snacks to match the vibe.

Pssstt… Real friends will wait for you to rearrange their placemats and trays for that perfect #foodie post. 

Of course the merch is top knotch.

This “Coco” jarrita mug inscribed with the film’s endearing line “Remember Me” in English and Spanish is adorable.

Some fans were bummed the merchandise sold out so quickly. 

You have to be quick around these fans.

However, some people aren’t letting Disney off the hook for not having enough merch in stock. 

‘Pixar Fest’ runs through Sept. 3 at both parks, so maybe Disney will have more jarritas by then. Fingers crossed and lighting a candle for ya! ? ? ?

Disney Just Confirmed Their First Bisexual Lead Character And She’s Dominican!

Disney Just Confirmed Their First Bisexual Lead Character And She’s Dominican!

Disney +

Whooot whoot!!

Disney Channel is officially bumping up its diversity efforts. The television channel recently confirmed that it is debuting its first bisexual lead character in a new series. Disney’s latest series “The Owl House” is an American animated fantasy television series created by Dana Terrace and premiered earlier this year on January 10, 2020.

Luz Noceda is the series’ 14-year-old Dominican-American girl and the channel’s first LGBTQ+ character.

While Luz isn’t the first LGBTQ+ Disney character to be featured on Disney (that goes to a character in Pixar’s short “Out” on Disney Plus) she is the first bisexual character to appear on a Disney television series.

“The Owl House” is a series that follows Luz a teenage girl who accidentally falls into a portal leading to another world instead of going to a juvenile detention summer camp.

Speaking about making Luz, her creator Dana Terrace shared that initially “certain Disney leadership” had not been thrilled about the LGBTQ+ character.

“I was very open about my intention to put queer kids in the main cast. I’m a horrible liar so sneaking it in would’ve been hard,” she explained in a tweet. “I was told by certain Disney leadership that I could not represent any form of bi or gay relationship on the channel.”

Terrace, who identifies as bisexual, said she fought hard to have Luz be bisexual on the Disney series as well. “Luckily my stubbornness paid off, and now I am very supported by current Disney leadership,” she explained.

Fortunately, viewers have given Terrace and her character quite a bit of support.

Fans of the series have thanked Noceda for bringing the representation of the LGBTQ+ community to Disney.

Alex Hirsch, the creator of Disney’s “Gravity Falls,” shared in the comments that Disney kept him from including LGBTQ+ in his series. “Apparently ‘happiest place on earth’ meant ‘straightest,'” he remarked. “Thanks to Dana Terrace and team, there are explicitly queer animated main characters on Disney TV… This time, Disney- you did good.”

In response to all of her support, Terrace urged her supporters to continue to fight for representation on-screen and other forms of media. “Representation matters!” she exclaimed.

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.
