NEW! Disney's Maleficent Trailer!


Hi everyone it's Xebs, Disney has released a new trailer for the upcoming movie Maleficent, which tells  the untold story of Disney's most iconic villain from the 1959 classic "Sleeping Beauty," reveals the events that hardened Maleficent's heart and drove her to curse the baby, Aurora. 

This trailer concerns me a little bit, you see the two dragons, but in the end, it ISN'T the Maleficent Dragon, I'm just hoping Disney is keeping it a secret. Also Maleficent had wings! I don't mind… I think it's a good idea considering she was once a "fairy-like" creature. Well, I hope you guys like the trailer.

NEW! Utada Hikaru - First Love -15th Anniversary Edition- Album!


Hi everyone it's Xebs, a fifteenth anniversary album of Utada Hikaru's "First Love" contains the original tracks of the album featuring the high-fidelity SHM-CD format, and remastering in 2014 by Ted Jensen. This album contains 3 of my favourites songs of her's, "First Love", "Another Chance" and "Give Me A Reason".


There's still no word if Utada Hikaru will be doing a new theme-song for the highly-anticipated Kingdom Hearts III, but last year her Mr Utada said on Twitter that they are "thinking about it", after the "miscommunication" were he replied to a fan's message saying "YES" about Utada Hikaru returning for Kingdom Hearts III. Lets hope that they're still thinking about it, unlike in 2007's interview were Mr Utada said that they won't do the next song after Disney didn't want to pay them more money for the other four past theme-songs "Simple & Clean" aka "Hikari" and "Sanctuary" aka "Passion".

BREAKING NEWS! Disney's Frozen Wins Best Original Song!


Hi everyone it's Xebs, again, Disney's first ever Oscar winning movie Frozen has won Best Original Song, "Let It Go." Written by Keisten Anderson-Lopez, Robert Lopez and sung by non-other then Idina Menzel. Her performance at the Oscars was in my opinion, graceful and beautiful,  but also it was a shame that towards the end she did struggled with the ending note. Well, overall I'm very happy for Disney to win so many awards with this gorgeous film. Also I'm very happy that "12 Years A Slave" won the Best Picture award. So happy!

Also I forgot to say, the introduction to "Let It Go", John Travolta mispronounced Idina Menzel's name, which was quiet funny, but at the same time a little bit disrespectful to Idina Menzel.

BREAKING NEWS! Disney's Frozen Wins the Oscar for Best Animated Feature & Make Over A Billion Dollars At The Box-Office!


Hi everyone it's Xebs, for the first time in forever, the Walt Disney Animation Studio has one it's first Oscar. It's sad to say that Hayao Miyazaki's "The Wind Rises" didn't win, cause in my opinion it had a better storyline then Disney's Frozen. Overall I'm extremely glad that Disney finally won an Oscar. Also a few days ago Frozen made into the billion dollar club, which the movie made around $1,000,236,000 and still hasn't been released in Japan. Wow!
