'Descendants' Preview Brings Classic Disney Characters to Life

'Descendants' Preview Brings Classic Disney Characters to Life
High School Musical director Kenny Ortega is returning to the Disney Channel with the all-new original TV movie Descendants, which brings some awfully wicked offspring to life. The first 6-minutes have debuted online, with Kenny Ortega introducing the movie and the wild thrills it contains. Here, we get to meet the teenage son of Belle and Beast, who rule over the fantasy kingdom of Auradon. All of the fairytale kingdoms have come together as one, for a story about what happens after 'happily ever after'.

Kenny Ortega describes Disney's Descendants as a modern fairy tale. As he puts it, it's a 'Once Upon a Now' story that will surely resonate with today's youth, as well as their parents alike. This opening prologue springs from the interface of an iPad, telling how Beast became president of Auradon, booting all of the villains and their sidekicks off to the Isle of the Lost.

Dallas Green Blasts Leah Miller Haters

You can say whatever you want about City and Colour's Dallas Green and his music. But he's had enough with the online attacks on his wife, TV personality Leah Miller.

Green has written a song in response to the "amateur commentators" who hide behind anonymous comments about Miller. The track, "Commentators," appears on his brand-new album "The Hurry and the Harm."

"It's a response to lazy journalism and faceless commentating that exists in our day and age," says Green. "Not on me, on my wife. I wrote the first verse on a particularly bad night of her reading things on the internet that she shouldn't. I try to get her not to, but she does, because she's human. The other day Leah was saying to me, 'I got a really nice tweet today. The person wrote 'I hate you.' That kind of stuff makes me think, 'what is happening in this world?

Denette Wilford: 'So You Think You Can Dance': Picking The Top 6 Dancers
"So You Think You Can Dance" speaks for itself. Actually, scratch that. "Sytycd" is so much more. I think it's easy to pass off the dance competition series as just another reality show but, really, it's anything but. There's only a bit of cheese, the talent is remarkable, and the moments are emotional and unforgettable. This isn't a dance show that centres on random celebrities with sexy pros (not that there's anything wrong with that), but "Sytycd" showcases the best of the best (at least, for this season, the show's ninth) and there's simply nothing like it.

For the most part, "Sytycd" can do no wrong -- though, admittedly, I'm not a fan of famous guest judges just for the sake of their celebrity, so when the third spot on the panel is given to someone unqualified, it's definitely a fast-forward moment (I love Zooey Deschanel and "New Girl" ranks among one of my favourites,

Canadian TV: Best 11 Moments of 2011
2011 was a pretty big year for the TV world in general. Oprah said farewell to her beloved daytime chatfest. Regis bid adieu to mornings with Kelly and Gelman. And Kim Kardashian broadcast her "fairytale" wedding for all the world to bask in. Here in Canada, we had some pretty memorable small screen moments of our own.

Perhaps most notably, our Canuck quest for global TV domination continued to gain momentum with homegrown shows like "Rookie Blue,""Todd and the Book of Pure Evil,""Lost Girl" and "Republic of Doyle" steadily growing their international audiences around the world (and we also reinforced the global stereotype that Canadians are an attractive bunch, with the likes of Anna Silk, Missy Peregrym and Allan Hawco representing us on the world stage).

Since it’s that time of year (yes, list time), we've compiled a list of the top 11 most memorable moments in Canadian TV this year.

So You Think You Can Tap? Canada Can

  • BuddyTV
According to Nigel Lythgoe, after last night's all tapper extravaganza, we've seen the last group tap routine for this season of So You Think You Can Dance. As Nigel explained, "tap is just too hard of a skill to teach to a non-tapper." So what say you, Mr. Nigel Lythgoe, to So You Think You Can Dance Canada's Tara-Jean Popowich and Everett Smith doing a...gasp, tap heavy routine?

That's right, our neighbors to the North just finished their season of So You Think You Can Dance Canada, where they challenged a non-tapper to tap. In Week 5, Sytycd Canada winner Tara-Jean and her partner tapper Everett drew "theater" as a genre, which involved a slew of tapping. Just watch for yourself:
