If you’re like me you were bummed to hear that “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” was being cancelled after a tremendous five season run. The animation, stories and acting were top notch and I really hoped that this new series Lucasfilm hinted at would be on par with the quality we, Wars fans, have grown accustomed to in terms of production value and storytelling. It would appear that our geeky prayers have been answered!
StarWars.com just released details on their new animated series “Star Wars Rebels.” Here’s the news from Lucasfilm themselves.
Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: The Quest for the Crystal Mickey will be released on DVD on May 21, 2013. The DVD will feature “Quest for Crystal Mickey- World Class Adventure” as well as four additional Mickey Mouse Clubhouse episodes! I had the chance to review this great DVD with my little one and we loved helping Mickey in his newest challenge!
In “The Quest for the Crystal Mickey,” you can join Mickey and the gang in their latest Clubhouse adventure. When the legendary Crystal Mickey goes missing, Mickey and friends must go on an adventure to get the Crystal Mickey back and save the Clubhouse from losing its magic. Mickey will have to journey across the Sandy Desert, brave the Rushing River and make his way through the Hidden Jungle all while avoiding Plunderin’ Pete’s traps! Can Mickey make it back to the Clubhouse with the Crystal Mickey before the Clubhouse loses all its magic?

You can now find Disney Junior and Disney XD shows on Netflix! Netflix and Disney/ABC Television group have come to an agreement to allow Netflix to become the only subscription streaming service to feature the popular children’s television shows “Jake and the Never Land Pirates” and the animated “Tron: Uprising.”
This multi-year licensing deal also allows Netflix to offer children’s shows including “Handy Manny,” “Special Agent Oso” and “JoJo’s Circus” to the movie and television service on a non-exclusive basis.
This announcement follows an agreement that was made last December, in which Netflix won exclusive pay TV rights to Walt Disney Studio films — including Marvel’s superhero films, Pixar’s animated films, and Lucasfilm’s “Star Wars.”
If you have young kids you are going to want to subscribe to the new Disney Junior digital magazine available in the app store or Apple Newsstand.
My son and I spent hours playing with this interactive magazine and let me tell you, it was a big hit with both of us. The issue we read was called “Everyone’s an Artist,” and there were lots of games relating to color and art work. My son loved all of the coloring and the ability to choose which color virtual crayon he would use with each new page! I love the fact that he could draw and write without any risk to my walls and floors!
