Disney+, the upcoming streaming service from The Walt Disney Company, is one of the most anticipated things in entertainment this year. Will you be subscribing when it launches on November 12th? If you weren't already planning to, some of the announcements from D23 today might convince you:
The Mandalorian trailer...and Ming-Na Wen joins the cast
It's been a pretty stressful couple weeks at work and in life, so I did the only logical thing when I arrived home this weekend. I poured myself a glass of wine and watched the entire Descendants trilogy. It took until now for me to prepare emotionally for seeing Cameron Boyce on screen after his passing, but I quickly was wrapped up in the joy and enthusiasm he brought to the role. The movies are cheesy and fun and everything you want from a Disney Channel movie. If you're looking for a break from the real world like I was, enjoy my top five favorite songs from the three Descendants films below (along with Disney Channel's tribute to Cameron) and share your favorite song in the comments:
5. "You and Me"
Hey everyone! Sorry we haven’t been able to get it together to record lately, but we wanted you to know the winner of this year’s ship bracket is...
Update: Comments now moderated. Have fun. BE NICE. Discussions on how to streamline the Bracket or cancel next year currently ongoing. If you know of any other polling companies besides CrowdSignal, please let us know.
It's time! Please find the champion and third place polls for the Ship Bracket below. Polls close on May 3rd at 12:00PM. As always, results will be hidden for the final 24 hours and the winner will be announced on the podcast. The results will be unhidden a week after the podcast is posted.
Some admin news at the top: tomorrow the final championship round of the Ship Bracket begins at 5PM PST! The third place poll will be running alongside.
In other news, I saw Endgame on Friday. I've been having some difficulties working through my opinions and emotions concerning THAT ending. Whenever I try to put together a spoiler free review of the movie, I'm unable to do so. I'll have a bigger article addressing the whole movie this week once I figure out how I feel. I hope you all get a chance to go and see the movie in the meantime. No matter how you feel about the movie when you leave, I think we can all agree it's a cultural moment we're unlikely to experience again. I was definitely riveted the entire three hours.
See you all tomorrow!
First, congratulations to our Final Four! I’m very curious how this round turns out. And a special shout out to my beloved Stucky (see website header), for getting the second most votes of any ship in any round!
Due to the fact that I know there are a lot of people taking part in fandom related activities the next few weeks, please see the schedules of the next two rounds below:
Final Four: April 16 5:00PM PST to April 19 12:00PM PST
Championship: April 30 5:00PM PST to May 3 12:00PM PST
UPDATE: Hi everyone! Thanks for letting me know the issues with voting multiple times right now, which is appearing across all four polls. I'm working to get it fixed right now, but to make it up to everyone the polls will be extended to 12PM PST on Friday.
UPDATE: Comments now being moderated and those with inappropriate language being deleted. Comments will be moderated in all future rounds.
It’s time for the Elite Eight everyone! Polls run through 12PM PST on Thursday. As always, we will alert you to any technical difficulties. Comments are not moderated for now, but that will change if people begin to attack each other. Stay clean and HAVE FUN!
Happy Monday everyone! No April Fools jokes here. Just wanted to let you know early that it’s looking like a long work day for me today, so the next round of the ship bracket will begin tomorrow at 5PM PST and run through Friday at 12PM PST.
Also, a little side note, we love your enthusiasm and passion for this bracket. But it’s not super fun for us to receive hate mail because of it, so please keep it clean and fun (like most of you already do)! Thanks!
The 2019 Ship Bracket is here! Check behind the cut for a close up view of the four divisions and come back on Thursday at 5PM PST/8 PM EST for the opening of the polls.
