Hey howdy hey, welcome to another episode of Woody’s Round-Up! I happened to be in Disneyland last week and I rode The Incredicoaster for the first time! What is there even to say. It’s exhilarating and terrifying, in the best way. My legs were shaking when I disembarked and I was flailing a bit because I couldn’t see (having stowed my glasses away, and not in the bag compartment on the ride; the thing actually goes upside down, so bye bye glasses if I had), but it was totally worth it. Hearing other people’s screams while walking around Pixar Pier made me glow with pride. I survived that! And what do you know, I even met Mr. Incredible too when the ride was over!
This latest round-up is definitely more tame but plenty incredible. Read on for more.
Elemental on Disney+
Today is the day when you can revisit Element City on Disney+. The film will be available on DVD and blu-ray on September 26th. I cannot wait to be immersed in the vibrant world again. And as an extra special bonus, “Good Chemistry,” a behind the scenes documentary, is also included. The short “Carl’s Date” gets its streaming premiere today as well.
If you’re on Instagram, enter the Disney Movie Insiders Elemental giveaway! But hurry, it ends on September 18th.
Elemental performed exceptionally well at the box office despite a slow start, and its success in South Korea can be attributed to singer-actor D.O. of the k-pop boyband EXO. He even performed a cover of Lauv’s “Steal the show” from the soundtrack.
He really is Elemental‘s biggest fan! I hope he gets to visit the studio and even get cast in a future movie.
The studio’s centenary is officially on October 16 but it’s a yearlong celebration! In honor of the big occasion, an original Pete Docter sketch will be donated for the Make a Wish Foundation. For more, visit the Create 100 website.
Toy Story and ESPN team up for the upcoming game of the Falcons vs. the Jaguars on October 1st. It will be broadcast live from Andy’s room. That’s right, it’s an animated version of the game! As I’m not a football fan, that’s the one I’ll be tuning in for.
