Captain America exhibit opens at Disneyland: On the Scene

Marvel fans still have a month before Captain America: The Winter Soldier hits theaters April 4, but one thing they don’t have to wait for is Disneyland’s newest addition to its Avengers exhibits, dedicated completely to the First Avenger himself.

EW was on the scene to experience the new exhibit during a special sneak preview. Read on to find out what to expect from the Captain America: The Living Legend and Symbol of Courage exhibit, opening Friday at Disneyland’s Tomorrowland Innoventions.

Thor is coming to Disneyland

Just in time for Thor: The Dark World, the blond-haired Asgardian Avenger is planning an extended trip to Disneyland. The news comes straight from the Disney Parks Blog, which is only becoming more relevant as Disney colonizes all the parts of your childhood it didn’t previously own. (Marvel? Check. Star Wars? Check. Your old elementary school? Any second now…) READ FULL STORY

On the scene: Johnny Depp and crew at the 'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides' premiere

Disneyland in Anaheim, Calif. was transformed on Saturday for the world premiere of Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.

“They told me it was going to be a big deal, but I didn’t imagine this. This is a spectacle, and it’s surreal,” Ian McShane, who joins the franchise as the dread pirate Blackbeard, told EW exclusively. “I can’t even see the end of the carpet.”

The party started long before before McShane, Johnny Depp, Penelope Cruz, and the rest of the cast stepped foot on the gigantic black carpet as costumed fans lined both sides of Main Street, many having stood there for hours in the hopes of meeting or landing an autograph from Capt. Jack Sparrow himself.  Hired pirates and wenches led the crowd in numerous rounds of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride’s theme song and entertained them with stilt-walking, juggling, balancing, and family-friendly smack talking.


'Lost' attraction at Disneyland? Fans say prettyprettyplease!!!

Last week, Lost fans took on a mighty foe that threatened the on-time arrive of the show’s Feb. 2 premiere and won! That dragon: President Obama’s State of the Union address. Fans made their voices heard with Tweets and petitions, and the president made like Neville Chamberlain and, like, totally caved! That’s right, Lost fans: We were the ones that influenced President Obama’s decision-making, and don’t let anyone (more reasonable and informed) tell you otherwise!

Having cowed the White House, Lost fans have now taken on a new mission. But I worry that we’re facing a more powerful foe than even the Commander In Chief. For who can dare sway the indomitable will of… The Walt Disney Company! Here’s the deal: Lost fans think that Disney, which owns Lost, should create a Disney attraction. Specifically, they think the company’s Imagineers should renovate Tom Sawyer Island (which no one really gives a flying Huck Finn about, anyway) and turn into…The Island. Just imagine: Interactive Dharma Stations! Jacob’s Haunted Shack! Michael’s Exploding Raft! Leslie Artz’s Insect House! PLUS: Animatronic polar bears, boars and Hurley birds! An all-you-can-eat buffet at the Dharma Palette Drop! And do you dare journey into The Temple’s ancient crack and confront your inner demons within…Smokey’s Court of Judgment?!? READ FULL STORY
