I’m sorry but every since I watched Lemonade Mouth for the first time last month I’ve been in love with Bridgit Mendler. Or maybe instead of getting older, I’m regressing. Who knows? I listened to her debut album My Name Is… on Rhapsody a few weeks ago and love it. Bridgit did a two song semi-acoustic set at D23 Expo and she completely screwed up her hit song Ready or Not. But being a pro, she simply stopped, made a joke and then started over. Nice recovery!
Walt Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn came to play at Disney’s D23 Expo. The huge crowd in the packed Disney Arena was in pure hysterics over Disney’s upcoming film slate. Horn kicked off the presentation by talking about all of their various divisions and the breath of it is just kind of staggering – Lucasfilms, Marvel, Disney Pictures and if you add in the animation divisions, amazing. What surprised me the most about the over 2 1/2 hour presentation was how much exclusive, never before seen footage was actually presented. There was some real meat on the bone here, I will post footage from the event when I get home and have a somewhat decent internet connection. First out of the gate was Marvel Studios President, Kevin Feige.
Everyone who reads my ramblings on Twitter and Facebook know that I’m in love with the Disney Movie Lemonade Mouth. Bridgit Mendler is going to do a 15 minute performance today at Disney’s D23 Expo. I think it’s kind of cheap to only do a couple of songs, but what can you do? I’m loving her debut album Hello My Name Is... It’s a well rounded, catchy pop album features the hit Ready or Not.
Day two of Disney’s sold out D23 Expo is going to highlight the music of it’s legendary composers Alan Menken and Richard Sherman in what will most likely be one of the biggest events of the weekend. The word greats and especially “Legends” are thrown around a lot at Disney’s D23 Expo, but I don’t think those accolades do just to composers Alan Menken and Richard Sherman.
Today at Disney D23 Expo, Walt Disney Animation Studios unveiled several new projects including a new Toy Story special, more information on Frozen (which was first announced at CinemaCon with a teaser image), The Last Dinosaur and brand new projects. Kristen Bell and Indina Mendez where on hand for the presentation.
