On April 1, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment will release THE PIRATE FAIRY, a film that is not only a sequel to recent films in the Disney Fairies series - but also a prequel to a true Disney classic, 1953's PETER PAN. I recently paid a visit to DisneyToon Studios (I was there as a guest, and yes, it was on Mickey's dime) in Glendale, California to get an early look at the film (review forthcoming) and a look at all the tie-in products that are being released this year to further entertain kids and grownups alike that find themselves enthralled in the world of Disney Fairies. Me? I'm sort of like "the boy who wouldn't grow up," and I got to hang out in the "zen garden" of the same facility where cool stuff like PLANES was made, while eating lunch with some fellow bloggers and wearing a Tinker Bell watch. 

It was only a matter of time, and that time is now... the folks over at Disney Store are ushering in a new galaxy of awesome with an exclusive collection of STAR WARS merchandise, just-launched and available now from (my affiliate) DisneyStore.com. Already stocked with 77 items (appropriate when you think about 1977... or 5-25-77), there's something for the entire family from STAR WARS RACERS (Die-cast cars based on the AT-AT, Darth Maul, C-3PO and more) to clothing for kids and grownups, banks, blasters, and plush, the new STAR WARS collection at Disney Store is well-worth a look.

As countless conflicts continue to rage around the Globe, there's always a few that seem to get swept under the mental rug and forgotten about. We often think of the mess in the Middle East, with those "name-brand" clashes like the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict, the War in Afghanistan, etc., but often forget about those other places like Burma and the Congo until a new RAMBO movie comes out to remind us (thanks, Sly!).
