Updates are slow coming, but we’re committed to bringing you interesting Disney updates that you may not see anywhere else. So, let’s not waste time and get right into it…

Some cool Boba Fett font art

I have got to get one of these! Haven’t seen this online yet for purchase. If you see one in the parks, let me know.

Who doesn’t love some crayon art. By color even.

A new pin featuring Dug from ‘Up’ inside the world of ‘Tron’ complete with ID disc. Last I checked these were sold out at Disneystore.com, so the parks are your best bet.

And some new Disney tattoos, leading off with what may be my favorite Disney tattoo I’ve seen so far, a cool sketch of Mike and Sully!

Wednesday Disney

Why, hello there Disney fans. When you have literally dozens of readers, like yours truly, you are expected to update your blog regulary. Alas, work intrudes, so the updates are fewer. But fear not! I’ve got two interviews I’m working on now, both are fabulous. Yeah, I said fabulous. That’s how I roll.

In the meantime, chew on some fresh Disney, and Disney-related, news, photos and awesomeness.

We kick things off with the new ‘Muppet Movie’ teaser poster. Thanks to Jim over at Jim Hill Media for the heads up.

Some news on the game front, Nintendo World Report reports seeing a new Disney MMPG title for the Wii called ‘Disney Universe’ on Amazon.com. I checked, and the link is gone from Amazon, but I trust the source, so you should too. Play as Tron or Stitch, I’m so there…

Before animatronics, vacuforming and high-res scanning devices, costumes were made using clothe, plastic and some serious hard work. However, there are many of you that remember when Disney park characters lacked a certain ‘I-don’t-know-what.’ Check ’em out here.

My friend Amy at athenienne.tumbler.com finds awesome stuff. Today, she found the above comic cover from the talented folks at Planet Pulp. I think I love the use of Presto DiGiotagione even more than seeing Flick. And please read her blog often. She seems to like Dr. Who…

Excellent Splash Mountain photobomb.

A week ago or so, I twitted about seeing an epic mullet walking to my car after work. Andrew Crawford, @all_or_nothing on Twitter, one-uped me and gave me a photo of the rare ‘Disney Mullet.’ Bask in its flat-top, pony tail glory…

No Disney tattoos this week, if you’ve got one, show me. But in honor of Star Tours 2.0 opening soon, here’s some Boba Fett goodness…

Friday the 13th Disney

Not much going on today that I can see. But, today is Friday the 13th, so we’ll do some Haunted Mansion odds and ends.

Jeff Heimbuch at Disney Dispatch continues his history of the Haunted Mansion here.

This year’s Friday the 13th Disney trading pin.

And some great Haunted Mansion tattoos. More here.

Epic Disney Wedding Pics

From Mlksk. I’m still laughing…

Wednesday Daily Disney

It’s been a few days, so lets jump right in:

Pixar released the first image from it’s new short, La Luna. It looks great, but the man on the right looks an awfully lot like Flint’s dad in ‘Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs’

Don’cha think?

Moving on…

This piece of awesomeness is by Andrew Chesworth. He’s an animator and blogger who did this for May 4th.

Leonard Maltin writes about a new auction of Disney artwork including actual letters from Walt over at vegalleries.com.

Included is this beautiful concept painting from Cinderella. As I’ve mentioned before, I can’t wait to see a Disney movie in an artistic style like this. Come on Pixar, I’m looking at you…

A great post here about Disney Anniversary celebrations over the years.

Star Tours Live has new pics of the new Star Tours cast member costumes here.

Matt Rhodes, an art director at BioWare, painted some great Disney stuff like the one above, and posted them. Yes, that’s the Genie and Arial escaping Maleficent, Jafar and Ursula. More here.

And some Disney tattoos:

Friday Daily Disney

Hello all. We lead off today with a an announcement: today is my 16th wedding anniversary to my lovely bride Jenny! We met in SoCal, so of course I immediately took her on a date to Disneyland. We waited until our daughter was 3 to go back to Disney World, but we haven’t stopped since. The photo is from our February trip with my favorite, Stitch. Happy Anniversary dear. Love you.

Keith Richards returns to the POTC as Jack’s father, Captain Teague. This has been reported as the first look at Richards, but I’m not sure. He popped up in the first teaser trailer. Image here. Thanks to Stitchkingdom.com for the image. More photos here.

Above is what we’re told is the new Blu-Ray box for Star Wars: The Complete Saga. The set, released on September 16 of this year, will feature all 6 films plus over 40 hours of extras. More here. I’ll just say one thing: this box art is not how you say ‘good.’

These adorable Mickey and Minnie ‘cake pops’ were found on Etsy today. Cute! More here.

A great blog post from Mouse Planet about pet peeves in the Disney Parks. While I tend to turn a blind eye to a lot of these, kids are kids and when you load them up on sugar and throw ’em into an amusement park, they’re bound to be a little hyper, I did agree with a few of them. The enormo-backpacks are a pain, especially in line for Big Thunder Mountain. But mine would be the ‘It Used to be Better’ people. I know ‘Alien Encounter’ was awesome, and I miss the Sky Buckets too, but I love Stitch and my daughter likes ‘Great Escape.’ Fantasyland NEEDS to be expanded, and frankly, ‘Test Track’ is fraking awesome. You changed over the past 20 years, why shouldn’t Disney?

Happy Birthday to the Norway Pavilion at Epcot, opening this day in 1988. I love this Pavilion! A great ride, fantastic food, beer and what I’m told from female friends at work, the cutest guys in Epcot.

And your wicked-awesome Disney tattoo of the day

Wednesday Daily Disney

Not much Disney news today that everyone else has covered to death, so here’s some stuff I bet you didn’t see anywhere else…

An excellent interview with a Haunted Mansion Cast Member here.

The Florida 'love bugs' are back.

And some Disney tattoos for your enjoyment:

This one is from my home town of Athens, GA. Click on the image to see some fantastic tattoo ink.
