So after Disney made the horrifying announcement that “Home on the Range” would be their last traditionally animated feature, we were anxiously waiting to see what their new fully CGI films would be like. And the first fully CGI film to be released was none other than “Chicken Little”.
Released in 2005, the film wasn’t a financial disappointment; but it definitely didn’t do that well with critics. A majority of people hates this movie or at least considers it to be amongst Disney’s weakest. I (as I’ve explained in an earlier post) actually enjoy this film. Sure, it’s stupid and the characters aren’t likable for the most part, but I just can’t help enjoying this movie every time I see it (which has been only twice, so far). So what’s the movie about?

Well, Dreamworks Animation’s latest animated film, “Turbo” (a film about a snail who races in the Indianapolis 500), has shown itself to not be a run-away hit at all! Hmm, who’d have known? The film only grossed about $30 million in the domestic weekend box office. I myself have had NO interest in seeing this, although I’m sure I will see it when it comes to DVD. Have you seen it? If so, what did you think? If not, do you plan on seeing it?

I apologize for the lateness of this post; it took me a while to obtain a copy of today’s film, “Home on the Range”.
Released in 2004, the 45th film in the Disney Canon frightened many of us because it was meant to be the last traditionally animated film in the Disney Canon!
And thank God that it wasn’t!
So, without further ado, let’s get right to talking about the film! More

Well, on my last update, the nigh unanimous guessed letter was “T”, so the new updated puzzle is:
__ __ __ E / A __ T __ __ N / __ __ __ N E __ / __ __ __ __ E __ / R E __ __ E __ __
Keep guessing letters! The letters guessed so far have been “R”, “E”, “N”, “A”, and “T”.

Well, there were no letters guessed multiple times in the last update, so I get to choose which letter to include. And I chose “A”. So the updated puzzle is now:
__ __ __ E / A __ __ __ __ N / __ __ __ N E __ / __ __ __ __ E __ / R E __ __ E __ __
Keep guessing letters! The only ones guessed so far have been “R”, “E”, “N”, and “A”.

Well, as some of you may know, “Saving Mr. Banks” is not only my #1 awaited Disney film of this year, but it’s also my #1 awaited film of this year, period! Telling the true story of how Walt Disney obtained the rights for “Mary Poppins” from its extremely reluctant and obstinate author, P.L. Travers, when I heard of this film being made, I was ambivalent! I was extremely excited to see this amazing story reach the masses, yet at the same time, I was reluctant to see how Walt Disney and the other key Disney people at the time would be portrayed. More
