  1. "For the last time, Jay— you are not getting into my 'Cave of Wonders!' "

  2. Yeah, not really feeling it. I could see the Evil Queen and Jafar getting a storyline linked because at least both of those take place in "the magic past" and in some kind of fairytale land/space. You could toss Ursula in there too that way. But it looks like they are trying to make it contemporary and set in what at least "looks" like the plain old normal world. I guess Cruella works for that, but those others must have lived a long damned time and traveled pretty far (or... magic). And I hope animals can talk.

    Or maybe it's supposed to be like Drawn Together, only not drawn... and actually for kids?

    Whatever... I'm obviously procrastinating because there's definitely better things I could be thinking about right now! For all I know all the characters get zapped out of their story's place and time by some kind of magic portal swirly thing so they have to learn important life lessons by working together in order to get back. Or maybe it's like Hunger Games and only one can live.

    Now I think I'm just writing demented fanfic or something.

  3. So, they're not just Final Fantasy cosplayers?

  4. Remember when Disney used to put a real, honest effort into going out there and finding someone else's ideas to rip off?

    Now it's like they're too lazy to even bother. Easier just to dredge up pointless, dull dreck from the back-catalog from 25 years or older.
