Ep121: The Collector’s New Home

Oct 12, 2016 | Podcast episode

In this episode: In this episode we talk about the only times that Disneyland and Disney World have closed, the new 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales' trailer is released, a Moana preview is coming to DCA, Freeform brings back the 13 nights of Halloween movie marathon AND we get a glimpse of 'The Collector's' new home at California Adventure.

°o° --------------------- °o°

The 5th installment of the Pirate’s of the Carribean franchise will be coming to theaters in May of 2017. Here is IMDB’s description of the storyline:

Captain Jack Sparrow finds the winds of ill-fortune blowing even more strongly when deadly ghost pirates led by his old nemesis, the terrifying Captain Salazar, escape from the Devil’s Triangle, determined to kill every pirate at sea…including him. Captain Jack’s only hope of survival lies in seeking out the legendary Trident of Poseidon, a powerful artifact that bestows upon its possessor total control over the seas.

2015’s Jungle Book directed by Jon Favreau got tons of great reviews. It was recently announced that the film will be getting the 3D treatment on a Collector’s Edition Blu-ray set scheduled for release on November 15, 2016.

As of this post, Amazon doesn’t haven’t a link available for ordering the 3D version but if you want the regular Blu-ray, click the image or the link to order! Huge thanks if you purchase using our link.

For the 18th year, the 13 Nights of Halloween movie marathon returns to Freeform (formerly ABC Family) starting October 19, 2016. We recommended that you watch the movie Hocus Pocus if you haven’t watched it yet because it’s a great Halloween movie (caution, some scenes might be too scary for younger viewers). If there is a particular movie in the line-up that you’re looking forward to seeing, let us know in the comments below!
