Huey, Dewey and Louie have always had things pretty good. They are, after all, Disney characters. But they’ve never had it quite like this.
When “Duck Tales,” the long running syndicated adventure series Disney aired between 1987 and 1990, is revived on cable-network Disney Xd on August 12, the troika of ducks – Donald Duck’s mischievous nephews who have been part of Disney lore since 1937 – they’ll have more personality than ever before. Huey is the first-born, by seconds, and as such is more responsible and reliable. Dewey is a typical middle child, always trying to get attention. And Louie, the last, is more comfortable flying – er, waddling – under the radar.
In years past, fans of the trio may have had a tougher time telling them apart. No longer. “We wanted to make sure it was more than ‘the red one,’ ‘the green one,’ ‘the blue one,’” said Matt Youngberg, executive producer of the new series.

A look at Disney’s live-action remakes to assess whether the music of the originals is still necessary.
As Disney celebrates opening their live-action take of Beauty and the Beast to the tune of $170m domestically, they are also preparing another re-imagining. It should come as no surprise that many of their properities are making the transition to live-action and Mulan is looking like the next movie to get a fresh treatment. The only problem is that Disney is considering releasing the movie without music.
When the new director of the live-action Mulan sat down with Moviefone while promoting her new film, The Zookeeper’s Wife, she confirmed that Disney has no plans to make the new Mulan a musical. That means all the hit songs you might remember from the original animated film are gone »

The Happiest Place on Earth has never been the cheapest. A single adult ticket to Disneyland will currently set you back between $95 and $119 depending on what day of the year you want to go (for those of you interested in such things, prices have more than doubled since 2000). That’s a lot of money to almost puke on the tea cups. But the price of an evening at the newly opened Disneyland restaurant, 21 Royal, might be enough to make you a little sick without spinning in circles.
