And, actually, Toy Story Of Terror isn’t even anything to do with Halloween! Still, it’s better than that one That Time Forgot, which was just awful.

Of course they add a special they repeat ad nauseam on TV! Offer something rare. There's still Friday but I'm not too hopeful...

Yeah, I finally have the service. While nice revisiting some old shows, and a few of the new offerings, I'm kind of underwhelmed.

Well it's halloween eve. So of course disney put tons of halloween stuff up like watcher in the woods, something wicked this way comes, child of glass and disney halloween treat and classic spooky shorts?

Of course they didn't.

This week--

New episodes of shows on there like that space star wars show you may have heard of.

Owl house s1--The one halloween thing they put on there today.
Sorcerer's apprentice live action movie
X-ray earth s1

That's it!


Update---Disney just added disney channel halloween party last second! Keep in mind the christmas ones were yanked off disney plus after a week so watch it if you want to before then!

This has got to be the smallest update yet. All those halloween stuff and shorts they own and 4 things for halloween weekend. Sigh.

I share your frustration. I was personally hoping for Mickey's House of Villains and Pooh's Heffalump Halloween Movie. The shorts from those films are scattered around on the service but it's not the same. At least the Pooh flick is on Youtube. That movie is special because it marks the final appearance of John Fiedler as Piglet. Such a huge loss. My feelings on his replacement are well documented, needless to say I am not a fan and he should've been replaced... Christopher Robin doesn't exactly count.

Never Been Kissed and Strange Magic have been removed. Kissed is a sweet film, Strange Magic should've never been added in the first place. UGLY!

Disney owns it, whether they like it or not...

Still, the more you actually force yourself to accident-view it, you realize Ugly is the LEAST of its problems, and it really is a good thing Brenda Chapman's paranoid-feminist career fell off a cliff after Brave (and this one):

...You HAVE been warned. :shock:

Yes, but you didn't complain about Chapman thinking Burt Bachrach's "I'll Never Fall in Love Again" was some kind of bold independent Queen-Elsa anthem for the equivalent Elsa heroine to go single-female-warrior.
(Uh, it's actually from the Broadway version of "The Apartment", and was sung as a duet by the Jack Lemmon/Shirley MacLaine characters?)

And ironically enough, here, the bitter cynical single sister is a brunette, while the happy clueless optimistic sister about to be duped by the bad guy is an icy blonde...Well, it's a switch, at least.

Giving a story consultant a lot of credit.

It's the same as how Jennifer Lee ruined Moana even though Lasseter was still CCO and Jennifer Lee isn't even credited on the film.

"Prep and landing naughty but nice" Imagine if that were the title. :lol:

Love Prep and Landing. It has become a holiday tradition. If I have any criticism, it's the length! Think it would've made for a great full-length feature, with a little more elbow room to breathe. Naughty Vs. Nice is also not without its charm. One of those rare times I find the sequel to be an improvement. Again, though, too short! All those new elements and characters. The character development felt a bit rushed. Has a lot of heart. Loved all the Easter eggs and nods.

I'm surprised they didn't add Operation: Secret Santa short to round out the collection. It's cute, plus Betty White! Shame they have yet to do a fourth one.

You would think if ANYONE had an excuse to bring back "Squanto: a Warrior's Tale"...
