DWTS' Victoria Arlen Reveals Why She 'Absolutely Lost It' Before Emotional Wheelchair Routine

DWTS' Victoria Arlen Reveals Why She 'Absolutely Lost It' Before Emotional Wheelchair Routine
Last Monday was incredible. It was Most Memorable Year night and we got to hear everyone’s incredible stories. That was far beyond anything I could have imagined and I was a hot mess by the time we got to our dance.

We started our dance with me in my old wheelchair and that was really emotional. It was really emotional to sit back in a wheelchair. As soon as I walked out into the ballroom and I saw my chair I absolutely lost it. But Val was there to keep me calm and focused and looking at the bigger picture,

From ‘Moana’ to ‘Finding Dory': 12 Disney Movies to Watch on Netflix Before They’re Gone (Photos)
Disney has been with us through thick and thin, from the Mickey Mouse whistling Steamboat Willie days to the 3D computer-animated films like Moana that makes us want to step through the screen and swim in the Pacific ocean amongst demigods. Now that Disney has announced it plans not to renew its distribution agreement with Netflix after 2019, its beloved movies will soon no longer be available to stream during your binge-watching nights (although Marvel and Lucasfilm hits may still survive the cut). Here are 12 nostalgic and new Disney movies you should watch before the entertainment mogul pulls...

Disney Hopes ‘Duck Tales’ Will Quack for a New Generation

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.

Disney World: Mickey Mouse, ‘Toy Story,’ ‘Guardians,’ and More Score Attractions
The D23 Expo wasn’t just about Disney’s slate of animated and live-action adventures this year, because we got some real world updates from the House of Mouse as well. Walt Disney Parks and Resorts has confirmed that Mickey Mouse’s very own ride will soon be coming to Disney World in Orlando, Fla.

Following the onstage presentations of “Wreck-It Ralph 2,” “A Wrinkle in Time,” “Aladdin,” and many others this weekend, Disney Parks chairman Bob Chapek took to the stage to confirm the “first ever ride-through attraction built entirely around Mickey Mouse” on Saturday.

Apparently, the ride will be similar to the “Pirates of the Caribbean” and “It’s a Small World” attractions in that it’s a tour — à la Steamboat Willie — only Mickey’s ride will be in “2.5-d” (No 3-D glasses required). Instead of Mickey operating a boat, Goofy

A ‘Mulan’ Without The Songs

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.

“Yes, from what I understand, no songs right now, much to the horror of my children.” Director of Mulan, Niki Caro.

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

Dinner at Disney’s New Exclusive Restaurant Costs $15,000
This article originally appeared on FWx.

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.

Great Job, Internet!: Bridget Jones’s Baby becomes a silent film in this dialogue-free trailer

Blame it on Al Jolson. Ever since that infernal crooner delivered the line “You ain’t heard nothin’ yet!” in 1927’s The Jazz Singer, audiences have demanded to hear actors speak in movies. The very next year, Mickey Mouse spoke in Steamboat Willie, and the era of the talkie had truly arrived. Displaced silent actress Norma Desmond (Gloria Swanson) would bemoan the situation in 1950’s Sunset Boulevard: “They had to have the ears of the whole world, too. So they opened their big mouths and out came talk, talk, talk!” The only silent films that have been made in recent decades have been deliberate throwbacks, like Michel Hazanavicius’ Oscar-winning The Artist. But maybe the silent movie, or at least the dialogue-free movie, has not yet breathed its last. On September 7, The Hollywood Reporter accidentally uploaded a wordless version of the trailer for the upcoming sequel Bridget Jones ...

The History of the Disney vs. Warner Bros Feud

  • Cinelinx
Disney and Warner Bros are currently embroiled in a major feud regarding the super hero movies they produce, based on characters from the rival comic book companies they own; Marvel and DC. However, the competition between the two studios goes back to the 1930s; which was long before the WB ever purchased DC and before Marvel Comics even existed. Cinelinx looks at the first rivalry between these two big movie studios, which pre-dates super heroes. It involved a mouse and a rabbit.

The Walt Disney Company made its mark in 1928 when it introduced the iconic character who would become its symbol/mascot. Micky Mouse debuted in the short film Steamboat Willie in 1928. Throughout the 1930s and into the 40s, Disney established itself as the dominant masters of cinematic animation. Other popular characters like Donald Duck, Minnie Mouse, Goofy and Pluto, among others, appeared to enthrall kids and amuse adults. The
