Over at Yahoo!, there's a feature called "The Weekly Flickr," in which they highlight a fantastic photographer for creating standout content. This week's episode focuses on Angela Bosner, a San Diego Mom who definitely rocks. While she certainly has taken some beautiful photos, its the subject matter that really stands out. Her main focus is her youngest daughter, and their trips to Disneyland. What makes these trips special is that on each one, young Haylie is wearing a custom-made, hand-sewn costume, each crafted by her Mom. The results are stellar. Check out the video below...

Review: THE PIRATE FAIRY (Blu-ray)

I'm surprised that we don't have a copy of PETER PAN here in the archives of Rock Father HQ. While it was released as a Diamond Edition Blu-ray last summer, I haven't picked up a copy yet, and I should probably correct that before the film retreats into the Disney Vault once more. I still remember the first time that I saw the 1953 film - during a theatrical re-release in 1982. We'd gone to see it at the Park Forest Theater (then, a large, single-screen movie house that was a relic from 1950), and to me, the film seemed brand-new... and I probably thought that it was. It's been years since I've seen it, though the little ones and I caught RETURN TO NEVER LAND not long ago. My girls haven't seen where it all began, yet Never Land is a place that's oft-visited, through the tales spun in JAKE AND THE NEVER LAND PIRATES, and the Disney Fairies realm. With the release of THE PIRATE FAIRY, everything comes together, as the film is both a sequel to the Tinker Bell films, and a prequel to PETER PAN.

On a sunny Wednesday afternoon, somewhere deep in the heart of Glendale, California, I found myself entering the semi-secret location of what is arguably the largest collection of art - specifically, animation elements - in the world. With a collection estimated to contain over 65 million unique pieces of artwork, The Walt Disney Animation Research Library (ARL) is "entrusted with the responsibility to conserve and protect the artistic heritage of Walt Disney Animation Studios," carefully cataloging and maintaining these true artistic treasures.

On April 1, DisneyToon Studios (the folks behind PLANES) will release THE PIRATE FAIRY on Blu-ray and DVD. Serving as both a sequel to other films in the Tinker Bell & Disney Fairies Series, and a prequel to the Disney classic PETER PAN, THE PIRATE FAIRY mashes up some fan favorites into a fun new adventure that I recently caught a preview screening of during a trip to DisneyToon in L.A. To celebrate the release THE ROCK FATHER and Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment have teamed-up to give you a chance to win a copy on Blu-ray combo pack!

"They have every Disney Golden Book ever made. I had that one... and that one... and this one right here." Those were the thoughts running through my head last month as I browsed a selection of books held within The Walt Disney Archives in Burbank, California. Just a few weeks prior, when I learned (and later announced) that I'd be flying out to Los Angeles to meet up with the Disney crew for a variety of projects (a trip that Disney paid for in full), I'd visited my own archives, specifically, a silver tote in my garage that holds a variety of keepsakes from the earliest years of my life. Mickey Mouse and his friends were a huge part of my life back then (pictures here), and now they are again, as I raise my daughters... and continue my own adventures in media. To think that a little kid that was making Mickey Mouse thumbprint art in the 1970s would be exploring the heart of the Disney empire in 2014... it's still completely hard to wrap my head around.

At The Walt Disney Company's annual shareholder's meeting this morning, CEO Robert Iger made a few announcements that are bound to excite movie fans young and old. The biggest comes from the company's PIXAR arm, with CARS 3 and long-requested THE INCREDIBLES 2 (with Director Brad Bird returning) in-development. On the galaxy far, far away note, Iger says that the Lucasfilm production of STAR WARS: EPISODE VII will take place 30 years after the events of RETURN OF THE JEDI, with "some very familiar faces along with a trio of new leads," according to the folks at THR. But that's not all that was announced...
