    Probably one of the saddest closures announced so far. A two year closure for the most iconic attraction at Disneyworld!:crazy2:

    I hope they take the time while the Railroad is closed to do some maintenance on the scenes in frontier land around the track. I mean Disney could technically have kept the rail road open running from Main street to Frontierland and then back with only one train on the track, but they decided not to do it, so at least they can do is some nice maintenance while its down.

    Was the Avengers 4 trailer pushed out again? I haven't seen anything about it yet and Google is throwing out rumors for a Friday release now.

    Geez - about flippin' time. These are only vaguely sports themed movies - and I have to say to most of these "It's about time!"

    I've been thinking for awhile - when are we getting the Flubber movies, the Dexter Riley trilogy, and the Shaggy Dog/DA??

    Well, looks like we finally are getting some of these. Both Flubber movies are silly but fun. The Strongest Man in the World is the third of the 3 Dexter Riley movies - these are the ones where Kurt Russel plays a college genius - the first was "Computer Wore Tennis Shoes" and the second "Now you see him, now you don't". I am not sure why they are not showing all 3 together, but whatever. (The one with the invisibility I remember being taken to as a very very young child and freaking out and my grandmother had to take me out of the theater.) Finally Gus is somehow burned into my brain from my youth - i would bet if we watch this I will remember it beat for beat.

    Now can we get Shaggy Dog/Shaggy DA please?

    Possibly. The Bush funeral coverage has been the main media focus right now.

    This happened a few days ago. Netflix is definitely moving away from the Marvel stuff, even when it is assumed to be really popular like Daredevil. This was the last one left. It's clear they are cutting all Disney ties. Makes sense with Disney owning a lot of Hulu now and putting up their own service. I expect we'll see some version of Daredevil come back either on Hulu or Disney Streaming when the contracts allow for it. While Netflix doesn't release numbers, it was generally assumed to be one of their most successful shows.

    Jessica Jones will have a season 3 as far as I know, but yeah, I expect that'll be axed too. I agree with you, not super surprising with Disney+ coming.

    Sure. That started filming back in the summer. I expect it will be gone after Season 3. Daredevil is showing Season 3, but Netflix axed it before Season 4 got any further than pitch work.

    It looks adorable. But if I had to choose this or SWGE, it’s SWGE in a heartbeat. And the cynical part of me kept thinking about how much those intricate audioanimatronic figures will break down... as lovely as they look...
