New Disney Channel Show!

There’s a new show on the block called “The Lodge” coming to Disney Channel!

This is a British musical-teen drama and is about a 15 year old named Skye who moves to remote Northern Ireland to help in her family owned local hotel. There, she tries to fit in with the local teenagers. There also seems to be a mystery element to this show as well…

I have yet to watch an episode but hope they the cast spontaneously break into song!

You can watch the trailer here:

If this seems like something you’re interested in, or even if you need more convincing, watch this video of the cast singing:

The show stars Thomas Doherty who is also part of “Descendants 2” and plays Captain Hook’s son.

If you like what you see, catch “The Lodge” on Disney Channel!

Sabrina Carpenter’s New Album!

It has arrived! Sabrina Carpenter has recently released her second, or sophomore, album and have gifted our ears with amazing new music.

The new album contains 10 songs, including the singles “On Purpose”, “All we have is Love”, “Run and Hide” and “Thumbs” that she released leading up to the album release.

The new album is a definite evolution from her first one, with a more edgy and mature sound that contrasts from the light and youthful of her first album. It shows her growing up in the year and a half since her first album that definitely shows in the music. She sings about being too young to fall in love in ‘Eyes Wide Open’ to being in love and falling out of love in her new album.

Her voice is also much more mature and the strength of her voice is definitely showcased in this album. From soaring high notes to being in the lower register and the control of her voice on lighter, quieter notes definitely shows the impeccable range that this girl has.

You can listen to all the songs from the album including acoustic and live versions of some of the songs:

Sabrina Carpenter also did a live concert on the Honda Civic Stage where some of the songs of the album was performed as well as some from her first album and covers of Beyonce’s “Freedom” and Nick Jonas’ “Close”. You can view all videos relating to those here.

Sabrina Carpenter is also on tour in the U.S, so check out whether she’s coming to a town near you!

This album definitely shows a progression from the first album and we are expecting great things for her in the future! Right now, this album will be on replay until the next one. ☺

Lab Rats: Elite Force is ending 😭

The season finale for Season 1 of Lab Rats: Elite Force is set to premiere on the 22nd of October and would be a 1-hour long finale. However, there has been no news of a renewal for a second season of LREF. Kelli Berglund also confirmed it was ending on social media.

The season finale’s plot would be that Roman and Riker are back and the team has to defend Centium City from their attack. This episode is also directed by William Brent who portrays Chase in LREF as seen by this tweet, so this will be a very special episode:

I really like this show and felt that there was a lot of character development of all of the characters that was different from the shows they came from. We get to see them away away from mission settings like those seen in Lab Rats which made for more comedic showing. Also, the characters from Might Med and Lab Rats seem to integrate nicely and we have seen new relationships being formed as well as some tension from working out the new group.

I think a second season would definitely develop each of the characters much further and we may be able to see what missions are like seeing as the team has been established. I also want to see the full extent of Bree’s powers that she obtained in this season. There’s a lot of storyline left for LREF and I really hope they do renew the season.

Don’t forget to watch LREF and if you feel like there should be a second season, sign this petition here.

Descendants: Wicked World Season 2!

It’s been almost five months since the last episode short of Descendants:  Wicked World, but now they are gracing our screens again. The new season of Descendants: Wicked World is set to premiere on the 21st of October.

The main cast will be reprising their roles and there are some new additional characters added. The last episode of Season 1 introduced CJ, Captain Hook’s daughter, so we’ll see whether they’ll develop her character further. Also being added is a character named Zevon, voiced by Bradley Steven Perry (Lab Rats: Elite Force), who is the son of Yzma from The Emperor’s New Groove. One casting change is that Freddie (Dr. Facilier’s daughter) would now be voiced by Lauryn McClain rather than China Anne McClain. This is because China is portraying Uma, Ursula’s daughter in Descendants 2.

Can’t wait for what this new season would bring! Let’s hope for more new songs and more exciting new adventures for the VKs!

Live-action coming to you!

This news may be old, so I thought I might combine all the recent news into one post.

Since the live-action remake of “The Jungle Book”, in the works are live-action “Beauty and the Beast”, “Mulan” and “The Lion King” movies.

“Beauty and the Beast” is the earliest one set to be released on March 17th, 2017 and stars Emma Watson as Belle. You can watch the sneak peak here:

Other live-action movies to be released are “Mulan” and “The Lion King”. “Mulan” is being fast-tracked to hopefully released on November 2nd, 2018 and there is no confirmed date for “The Lion King” (at least I couldn’t find one).

So, it’s time to brush up on these iconic and popular Disney movies in anticipation of these new films!

Dream Big, Princess

I recently stumbled across this amazing campaign that was started way back in February. This initiative to inspire kids of all ages to aim for their dreams and dream big. This is helped by seeing what each Disney princess overcame to live their own dream.

Disney takes the stories and qualities of these Disney princess and puts them into a theme that they have every month from friendship to adventure which kids can share under these themes.

I also came across a Spotify playlist containing all the songs from these movies as well as a mashup from Cinderella, “A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes” and “So This is Love” done by Sabrina Carpenter. You can listen to the whole playlist here:

I think this is an amazing thing that Disney is doing to encourage kids to go out and try to accomplish the dreams with help from some of their role models.

New ‘Tangled’ Series!

The most exciting news has been released! Disney Channel have recently announced/teased a new ‘Tangled’ series set to air in 2017. This is a follow-on from the 2010 movie, but set before the 2012 short film ‘Tangled Ever After’.

This will be in 2D animation form and stars the original voices from the movie: Mandy Moore as Rapunzel and Zachary Levi as Flynn Rider (or Eugene). It will follow Rapunzel as she gets to know her parents and kingdom since being kidnapped as a baby.
