It’s also the occasion for us to come back on the last superbowl during which many movie news have been revealed! Without forgetting more and more shopping news.

Worlds of Disney – The news to wake the dead

What if we told you that The Walt Disney Company could raise the dead? Well, maybe not in the flesh… But this is what the Disney 100 exhibition proposes with a realistic hologram of Walt Disney, which will take visitors on a journey back in time to the beginnings of The Walt Disney Company!

Created with video archives and artificial intelligence tools, this hologram will be life-size and will speak with Walt’s voice… It will give you the shivers or tears in your eyes for the most emotional of us!

📢 Disney experience By Valentin

And we’re off on a little world tour! Well, for this issue it will be more a little tour in the USA.

Let’s start with the return to normal of the room services in the Disney hotels of Walt Disney World. Indeed, since the beginning of the pandemic, this room cleaning service had been greatly reduced for sanitary reasons. This return to normal will take place during February.

Then, let’s cross the country to California where the Disneyland park has just shown the new costumes that will be worn by the Cast Members in Mickey’s Toontown area. So what do you think? This zone will open on March 19th.

Moreover, the Californian park has also given us some information about the history of their new attraction (or rather re-theme) Tiana’s Bayou Adventure. Indeed, since the end of the animated feature film, Tiana has bought an old salt mine and rehabilitated it. She has also acquired the land around it. She then founded a cooperative to create her own brand of Tiana’s Food. To thank her friends and family, she wants to cook a special dish to celebrate Shrove Tuesday but is missing a particular ingredient. So she asks us to help her find it. Are you looking forward to this new version of the attraction?

To finish this issue, let’s talk about Disney100: the exhibition, an exhibition that promises to immerse its visitors in the history of the company. It will start on February 19 in Philadelphia!

On the screens

After having kicked the bucket, Disney’s reorganisation should allow the firm with big ears to fully advance on its hobbyhorse: audiovisual productions. This time again, the company has some great announcements in store for us!

In the cinema

Looking for adventure?

If we say white shirt, hat, whip, jungle… Come on, we’re sure you already have the credits in mind.

Indiana Jones, the most famous adventurer of all, is coming back to the cinema. The cult saga from Lucasfilm is going to make a comeback, and this is no surprise since the announcement was made several years ago. But something new is coming. Indeed, a very first TV spot has been unveiled during the superbowl, a cult American football event in the US.

Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny will be the fifth installment of the archaeologist’s adventures. This time it will be directed by James Mangold, and we will once again find the great John Williams on the music.

Come on, just for the pleasure of seeing Indiana Jones on this cult music, we show you the TV spot without further delay.

To other worlds…

Are you more into space travel? We’ve got news for you!

Indeed, at the superbowl (yes, at the same event), the next installment of Guardians of the Galaxy was also revealed.

“As they prepare to move to Knowhere, our favorite band of misfits find their fate upended by echoes of Rocket’s dark past. Determined to save his teammate’s life, Peter Quill, still reeling from the loss of Gamora, rallies his squad around him again for a dangerous mission. A mission that, if not carried out, could well lead to the end of the Guardians as we know them.”

On Disney Plus

We recently announced the new releases on Disney Plus for February. Among them, the new series Extraordinary, a UFO from our English neighbours that we devoured (and loved).

Clap extraordinary saison 2
Extraordinary – saison 2

We recently learned some great news: the series will get a season 2. Johanna Devereaux, Disney+’s Vice President of Drama and Executive Producer, announced the news in London last week, and we have to admit, we’re really excited about it.

We’ll have the pleasure to meet Jen and her companions again for the continuation of their adventures in this world where everyone has a power (or almost…).

We won’t tell you more so as not to spoil the surprise for those who haven’t seen the series yet, but we strongly recommend you to go and watch this little gem that breaks the codes and emancipates itself from the rest of the platform. However, we would like to warn you that this humorous sitcom is reserved for an informed public and is only available to those over 18 in the STAR catalogue.

For the moment, no date has been announced. All we know is that the series will pick up where it left off and that the cast composed of Máiréad Tyers (Jen), Sofia Oxenham (Carrie), Bilal Hasna (Kash), Luke Rollason (Jizzlord), Siobhan McSweeney (Jen’s mother Mary) and Robbie Gee (Ian, her stepfather), will be back.

Disney Illusion Island

Logo – Disney Illusion Island

We often talk to you about video games in this section with game updates that are well established in the video game landscape. But it’s a new game we’re going to talk about this time!

It’s with great excitement that we can tell you about Mickey’s new video game adventure. Already available for pre-order on Nintendo Switch, Disney Illusion Island will be an adventure game with up to 4 players.

The pitch

“Join Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy as they embark on a perilous quest to explore the colorful and mysterious island of Monos to retrieve three Magic Tomes, powerful books used to protect the island. Featuring the voices of Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy and original orchestral music, players can go solo or team up with up to three friends and use unique techniques such as uncoiling a rope to help their friends join them, playing leapfrog to cover more distance, or increasing their health by hugging. Discover rich biomes and new environments, meet strange but intriguing characters and a host of hidden secrets!

The journey will not be easy, however, and with intrigue afoot, appearances are deceiving on “Illusion Island.”

Disney’s future video game, in collaboration with Dlala Studios, will allow us to immerse ourselves in the skin of our favourite characters to advance in a thrilling adventure.

We already know that we will have to explore Illusion Island by exploiting the characteristics of each of the characters. The hand-drawn animation will allow us to immerse ourselves in a cartoon where our goal will be simple: save the world!

We already have quite a few images of the game, and the least we can say is that it makes us want to play. We love the idea of having an original story in a cartoon style, with the real voices of the characters, and the original orchestral soundtrack. To make it short: the game will definitely be pre-ordered on my side!

Release of the Disney Illusion Island video game scheduled in France on July 28, 2023.

Passionate about writing and the world of fairy tales to the point of making it the subject of my thesis, the magic of Disney touched my cradle and never left me. From the enchantment of the princesses to the most incredible adventures, it is this pinch of dreams that has imbued my pen. Today, surrounded by a team of experienced Disneyans, I am happy and honored to extend the magic to everyday life.
