Orlando, Aug 24 (AP/UNB) — Disney officials say they plan to open an attraction based on the animated film "Moana" at Walt Disney World, and they announced the name of a "Star Wars"-themed hotel being planned for the Florida resort.
The officials made the announcements Thursday at the company's annual D23 Expo in Anaheim, California.
The hotel will be called "Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser." It will resemble a spaceship, and visitors will get to interact with performers dressed as storm troopers and Chewbacca.
The "Moana" attraction, called "Journey of Water," will be at Epcot park in Florida and is part of the park's revamping.
The announcement comes a week before the Florida resort is opening its much anticipated "Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge" land. A similar attraction opened in California this summer.
Dhaka, Aug 24 (UNB) - The director of upcoming comic-book movie Joker, Todd Phillips says he would be willing to do a sequel. The condition is, of course, Joaquin Phoenix returning to don the role of the Clown Prince of Crime, reports The Indian Express.
While speaking with Total Film he said, “One thing I will tell you: I would do anything with Joaquin, any day of the week,. There’s nobody like him. If he was willing to do it, and if people show up to this movie, and Warners came to us and said, ‘You know what? If you guys could think of something…’ Well, I have a feeling that he and I could think of something pretty cool.”
Joker is an oddity in the comic-book movie genre. It is budgeted at a modest 55 million dollars and it is likely to be more akin to a crime movie than other DC and Marvel movies with extensive CGI driven action scenes.
It is described as first and foremost a character study and is about a downtrodden comedian called Arthur Fleck who rises to become Gotham’s criminal mastermind.
The synopsis states, “Joker centers around the iconic arch-nemesis and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen. The exploration of Arthur Fleck (Joaquin Phoenix), a man disregarded by society, is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.”
Todd Phillips has written the story with Oscar winner Scott Silver. Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz, and Frances Conroy also star.
New Yrok, Aug 23 (AP/UNB) - Miley Cyrus denied rumours Thursday that she cheated on her soon-to-be ex-husband, Liam Hemsworth.
In stream-of-consciousness mode, the pop star concluded, “You can say I am a twerking, pot smoking, foul mouthed hillbilly but I am not a liar.”
Hemsworth, 29, and Cyrus, 26, were on again, off again for 10 years but were married just seven months ago. He filed for divorce on Wednesday, citing irreconcilable differences.
Cyrus and Kaitlynn Carter, the estranged partner of Brody Jenner, were seen kissing in photos that surfaced earlier this month. Cyrus didn’t mention Carter by name on Twitter but admitted to cheating in relationships when she was younger.
“There are NO secrets to uncover here,” Cyrus tweeted. “I’ve learned from every experience in my life. I’m not perfect, I don’t want to be, it’s boring. I’ve grown up in front of you, but the bottom line is, I HAVE GROWN UP.”
Cyrus said she was faithful once she and Hemsworth reconciled, adding, “I can admit to a lot of things but I refuse to admit that my marriage ended because of cheating. Liam and I have been together for a decade. I’ve said it before & it remains true, I love Liam and always will.”
