Welcome to Geeks Corner! This week we lead off with a discussion about all the enhancements coming to the Disney Theme Parks in Asia. Hong Kong Disneyland, Tokyo Disney, and Shanghai Disney are all in the midst of expansion projects for their parks. This will bring new experiences that will include characters from Beauty and the Beast, Big Hero 6, Frozen, and Toy Story. It also will mean an expansion for the castle at Hong Kong Disneyland. This brings up an interesting question: Would Walt Disney have kept Sleeping Beauty Castle the same or changed it?
Marvel has released a teaser for Thor: Ragnarok. This trailer looks to be crossing over with Guardians of the Galaxy. The geeks share their thoughts on this new trailer.
Finally, Star Wars is back with another Force for Change. The geeks talk about their excitement for this along with sharing what Star Wars character they would be.
We hope you enjoy this week’s episode of Geeks Corner! Here are posts referenced in this episode:
