Selena Gomez announced on her Twitter site that 2010 is “the year of no fear.” At the very top of the talented singer and actress’ list of things to do this year is planning a summer tour.
“Officially back to work, I feel so refreshed and ready for 2010,” Gomez said. “Lots of great things to come I am very excited. I am finally making it out to the East coast for a show and am in talks of a tour over the summer, crossing my fingers everything works out.”
Meanwhile, Gomez’ hit comedy series Wizards of Waverly Place is airing a special one-hour episode titled “Wizards vs. Werewolves.” The episode premieres Friday, January 22 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on the Disney Channel. She will also make her feature film debut this summer with Ramona and Beezus, in theaters August 13.

Interesting article about Test Track and GM’s possible departure from sponsorship at Disneyworld.
By all appearances, General Motors, the Detroit auto giant forced through bankruptcy last year, remains sponsor of the Test Track attraction at Epcot. Even though GMâ€™s $100 million sponsorship contract with Walt Disney World is believed to have expired last year and there was never any announcement of a renewal, the companyâ€™s logo and presence is still splashed all around the pavilion.
Still, there are some signs around Test Track of the painful restructuring that GM is going through.
For example, GM has pulled cars from the brands it plans drop (Saturn, Hummer, Saab and Pontiac) from the swanky showroom that guests walk through when they exit the ride, such as a Saturn VUE hybrid that until recently was on display in the area. The only cars displayed now are from GMC, Chevy, Buick and Cadillac, GMâ€™s remaining core brands.
GM has also removed a large model Hummer made of wood that had been something of a minor attraction in Test Trackâ€™s gift shop. (The model was large enough for a crash-test dummy to sit in the driverâ€™s seat). In its place: One of Disney Worldâ€™s much smaller souvenir model monorails, which does laps around a small pile of boxes of the toys.

Hot on the heels of the news this week that production of Spider-Man 4 isÂ delayed, Paramount and Marvel Entertainment have pushed up the release of Thor by two weeks to May 6, 2011, reports Variety.
Thor, starring Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman, was going to open on May 20. Disney has now grabbed that date for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.
Spider-Man 4 was supposed to start filming in February, reports Nikki Finke, then it pushed to March. Then late March/early April. And now there’s no date at all. Finke says director Sam Raimi “hated” the script.
I know a few months back I posted an article about:
Johnny Depp may walk away from a fourth installment of Pirates of the Caribbean after Disney ousted the veteran studio chief who first backed his vision for the role of Captain Jack Sparrow.
Well I have some good news & bad news…
Good News – The official announcement has been made by Walt Disney Pictures that the film â€œPirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tidesâ€ will be released to theaters on May 20, 2011.
Bad News – Currently, Johnny Depp is not attached to the film. I hoping that Depp will star in the film, although, after Dick Cook’s departure, you never know what might happen. I’d like to point out that a year and a half is an incredibly short amount of time to write, shoot, edit, and promote such a blockbuster.
