In Case You Missed ItHas your mind caught up with all the Disney news that was announced last week? I think I may have gotten carpal tunnel from all the articles! It’s crazy to think about all that’s coming from Disney over the next few years, both in the parks, as well as in other realms, like movies, consumer products, and more.

This, week, let’s catch up on a few of the more obscure pieces of news from D23, like what you may not know about The Lion King, teaser information about some new film, and so much more!

Vulture takes a look at the question that’s been asked, time and time again..why Pandora and why was so much money spent on it? But this time, it’s a story with a spin of someone who worked for Disney at the time. While I may know the story, I found this look to be very intriguing.
