Wall•E

Lord only knows when the site finally got some content but there was a new trailer for Wall•E that aired during the Super Bowl. Build-a-bot and games coming soon. There are some very Mac ad inspired wallpapers for your desktop enjoyment.

Wall•E is Pixar's new feature animated film that's coming out this summer about a sanitation robot (and his pet cockroach) left alone on an ecologically destroyed Earth for 700 years.

I've always liked the Pixar films (to varying degrees) even before I was a parent (I still think Cars is the best one to date followed by Monsters Inc. Sorry Ratatouille). Needless to say I'm really excited about Pixar's first Sci-fi film.

I was disappointed in the new trailer, which makes sense since it was a Super Bowl ad. Oh burn…yeah I said it. I was looking for a few more scenes from the film or perhaps glimpses of other characters. But in the end beggars can't be choosers. You can check out the first two teaser trailers on film's site and even download them for your iPod and or your PSP (the first teaser only).

I did find it strange that Buzz and Woody made an appearance in the Wall•E ad and thought that they had mention the tried and true franchise to pump up the new film. This is until I found out that Pixar is working on Toy Story 3 tentatively scheduled for a June 2010 release

I Have PHDIS

Bell satellite has a free preview of Disney Playhouse for the next month or so.

It has the usual stuff that I've seen on any number of the other kids channels. What caught my eye was a new Winnie the Pooh series called My Friends Tigger & Pooh.

They seem to have changed out Christopher Robin for a girl named Darby. Not a big deal, but I'd hate to Christopher Robin's agent.

I know that they are trying to open the demographics of the show by including a girl but it's like replacing Piglet with a dinosaur because studies say kids love dinosaurs. But if they were going to drop a character Christopher Robin

They have a contest to promote the launch of the channel here in Canada but (say it with me) excludes residents of Quebec.

Disney Thurdays

Asper usual Ethan and I went to check out the antique cars again and to my ever gowning amazement there's still new ones to check out. This weeks hit was the Disney van. The photos don't do it justice. The characters were pretty on model regardless of the panel shape or curves.

There was also a dragster that showed up on a trailer. It even had one of those little training wheeley things out the back to keep the front end down. When they started revving the engine it gave Ethan quite the fright. It was freaking loud. I was worried that it might damage his little ears.
