Can I just say how EXCITED I am for this movie? Disney is just hitting all cylinders for me right now - it almost feels like the 90's.

The trailer just came out and it caught my attention. I think I might have seen a version back in school but that was so long ago and I was not as much a fan of musicals as I am now.

Great cast: Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Russell Crowe, etc. I enjoyed Amanda Seyfried in Mamma Mia! so I'm excited to see she is in this.

I am eagerly anticipating the release of Star Wars the Complete Saga on Blu-Ray on Friday? (What is with these releases on Friday lately? Feels like it is something that just started this year.) And well, with the news that there were some new tweaks to the series, it got me thinking about what I would like to see fixed and at the moment I can only really think of one jarring scene.

And that would be the re-included scene of Han Solo and Jabba in A New Hope. Of course when it was filmed in the 70s Jabba was not yet a slug and as a result there is that awkward moment where they have Han unevenly walking around Jabba by stepping on his tail. It's weird. I always thought they should go ahead and reshoot it from wider angles and maybe have a stand-in for Han Solo and intersplice with the closeups they had, but it wasn't practical.

Then came Tron: Legacy and Jeff Bridges playing his younger self, that came out pretty well. Not perfect and there was a little of the uncanny valley effect but I think it would be an interesting technique to use to fix my problem with the scene. Being able to bring back Harrison Ford to play the same role, and to redo the scene with this time keeping in mind Jabba's form, and making it a much smoother moment would be so cool.

P.S. Amazon has the set for $79. SO TEMPTING.

P.P.S. Have you seen this skit of Harrison Ford on Jimmy Kimmel? Loved it!

So whether we like it or not the end is coming and on Wednesday and Thursday, were the London photocall and premiere for Deathly Hallows Part 2. And it's just so interesting to see the pictures and how time has passed. 10 years. It's strange but Smallville just ended in May and now comes Harry Potter and both started in late 2001 and ending in Summer 2011. Strange how two of my fandoms line up so perfectly like that.

This was the photocall and OMG its crazy to see the kids now. If they were American actors I'm sure they'd have been snatched up for a CW show they look so great. XD

And from the premiere that was shown live on Youtube which was AMAZING. And the speeches were so emotional, I was so happy to catch that part live.

Also there were some great moments caught on video:

Here are the speeches from the end of the premiere.

And after the photocall there was also a press conference where this great question was asked for the cast to give their character's favorite line. Only wish Dan had been there to find out what his was.

The trailer is out! I'm really excited and can't believe we're past the halfway point between Parts 1 & 2. I admit it wouldn't be a Harry Potter trailer without the "ooh, that's an interesting change" moment but I was surprised there wasn't like a final spoken line at the end. That is usually the memorable part to me of a HP trailer.

Can't wait to watch it ... I've enjoyed every Flagship Disney animated film since the Pixar guys took over (Meet the Robinsons, Bolt, The Princess and the Frog).
