The world loves actors — we follow them on Twitter, tune in to award shows to watch them out of character, and follow their everyday lives in magazines and on the Internet — but not all actors get the attention they deserve. Take voice actors for example, and we’re not talking about the likes of Tom Hanks in Toy Story or Nicolas Cage in The Croods, who are hired primarily for their star appeal more so than their ability to bring a character to life. No, we’re talking about actual full time voice actors, most of whom have voiced a character in the animated shows and video games we watch and play on a daily basis, and who most of us aren’t really aware of.

This spectacular set of illustrations features several classic Disney characters re-imagined in a world of steampunk. They were created by DeviantArtist MecaniqueFairy, and they take these characters to a whole new level of cool. Some of the characters include Mickey, Minnie, Tinkerbell, Darkwing Duck, Ariel, Cinderella, Lilo, Stitch, Mr. Incredible, Snow White, Scar, Jack, Sally, Beast and a lot more! I hope you enjoy this series of art as much as I do.

There is a lot of Marvel going on in Disney Infinity 2.0: Marvel Super Heroes and for some folks, the lack of non-Marvel Disney properties represented in the game is discouraging. Meridia and Maleficent are the only two non-Marvel characters confirmed to be getting the toy figurine treatment, though a few others including Donald Duck, Stitch and Tinkerbell were leaked by Walmart.
Today's news should add a little spring to the step for those of you who want more classic Disney in your Disney Infinity games. The treat we have to share is a nice high resolution image of 10 upcoming Disney Infinity 2.0 Power Discs that you will be able to purchase later this year. I would speculatively expect at least another round of "Disney Originals" Power Discs, if not more than one, to also be on the way.

Remember when we were kids, when the weekend was our everything? Those Saturday mornings when we got to sleep in as long as we wanted, then watch our favorite cartoons for a couple hours? There was nothing like a few hours of Darkwing Duck, Gargoyles, The Real Ghostbusters and Recess to start the day. Then came Sunday morning, and odds were that you probably got dragged to church, kicking and screaming, against your will. As a kid, you probably found it tremendously difficult to keep your eyelids open long enough to not embarrass your parents, because at the time, there was nothing quite as boring than being in the presence of your priest or pastor, listening to him rattle on and on about the Rapture and how you were damned to hell if you were to commit a sin that never even occurred to you until they mentioned it. »
