Cooked duck tales
The “Fantasmic!” show on the Rivers of America is a huge hit at disney.“As part of the show, they basically set the river on fire,” says Koenig. “They have this giant, fire-breathing dragon from ‘Sleeping Beauty.’ It roars fire and it’s as if the river catches on fire.”
But when it first debuted at Disneyland in the early 1990s, it had a kid-unfriendly effect. “What they quickly discovered when they first had the show was that the ducks that liked to hang out on the river were being cooked.”
Disney made change to the show. “Now what they do is, not long before the fire shows up, they have this sort of bubbling water effect that makes the water really turbulent and it scares away all the ducks,” says Koenig. “People think it’s for the atmosphere — like the moment’s getting tense and something interesting is going to happen. But really, it’s to save the lives of the ducks.” So Donald can rest easy!
Characters not so nice
One case in the early 1980s, one performer playing Winnie-the-Pooh at Disneyland who was accused of slapping a young girl. During the trial decided to actually plead his part of his case in costume.
“After a recess, he came back out in the costume, skipping, doing a little dance, throwing kisses to everyone,” says Koenig. “As soon as the opposing attorney saw the costume skip out, he basically did a faceplant. Like, ‘Oh gosh, we’re cooked now.’”
The Winnie-the-Pooh testified his costume had stumps for arms and been unable to hit anyone in the head. He said that"when he noticed the girl behind him about to hit him, he quickly turned around and must have made contact with the costume’s ears".
If you have walked the Disneyland waterways like the Rivers of America, the Storybook Land canals or the Jungle Cruise river, you will noticed= the water is colored green. The water is dyed green intentionally.
“In the days of Walt Disney, he wanted you to believe you were on a 19th-century steamship or paddle wheeler,” explains Koenig, “that these were actual real free-floating boats. Not that they were riding on a track. By dyeing the water green, you can’t see the track.”
“Once every couple of years they’ll drain these rivers to do maintenance and clear out all the things that have been dropped in there,” Koenig says. “They’ve found some amazing things: wheelchairs, mechanized scooters, trash cans, hundreds of cameras, large strollers — anything you could imagine they would find at the bottom of these rivers.”

DISNEY/ POST SECRETS POST??
‘Dumb idea’ sparks new trend in baby names https://t.co/y0JkXs5p1b— news.com.au (@newscomauHQ) January 18, 2016
-Kristen Bell & Dax Shepard's daughter is called Lincoln; Mila & Ashton have daughter Wyatt; Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds have daughter James; Mark Zuckerberg's daughter is called Max; and Leighton Meester & Adam Brody have 5 month-old daughter Arlo. Writer doesn't use examples of boys with girls' names (shock!).
-The writer laments the trend and asks, Has the political correctness pendulum swung so far that calling a girl Emma — the most popular name in 2014, reports the Social Security Administration — is now seen as a mild form of abuse? As is calling a boy Noah?
-Writer cites a study that suggests women with masculine names are more successful in male-dominated fields (SHOCK!), another that says people with more common names are most hire-able, and another which says children with uncommon names are more prone to delinquency.
-Writer's name is Reed.

Here's the first episode "Unauthorized Magic".
Syfy released the first episode on YouTube over the weekend. The first and second episode will premiere Monday night January 25, 2016 at 9pm. I watched it this afternoon and I really like it excited for the rest of the season. Plus Stelle Maeve is in it.

What do you think ONTD? Did you read the book?
The 'baller' is former NFL (Baltimore Ravens) player Bryant McKinnie.
He is worth $3. 5 million
ONTD, have your cakes ever been smashed to smithereens? If so, how long was the recovery time for you?
If you've never had your cakes crumbled, who would you let smash your cakes to smithereens for the first time?

Paraphrased from @ComingSoon. @ComiConverse.
In other news:
Her stepfather was in first row:
"My first fashion show ever!!! Starting Starting at the top with this one @gigihadid leading the pack!!! It was amazing and so was she!!! #proudstepdad #versace."
How jealous are you ONTD, on a scale of Zayn to Paris FW
Apparently Liam was asked to meet J. Lo and talk about how he could write for her; apparently she was impressed and nows he's working on loads of new tracks for her. He's apparently really excited to be working with a music legend like her.
also this was orignially reported by the Sun so they are still getting the 1D exclusives then
To pass the Bechdel test, the film needs to fit three requirements:
#1 It has at least two women in it
#2 Who talk to each other, about
#3 Something besides a man
Seems like a low bar, but movies like ONTD’s favorite Avatar, Toy Story and Mr. and Mrs. Smith don’t pass the test.
Below are some graphics as example (if you go to the source, they are all interactive, roll over the picture and you will get name of the movie, people involved, etc)
When it comes to writing staff, here’s the truth:
The results consist of the 200 highest grossing films between 1995-2015
oh wow, look at that. as you get more women in your writing team, more likely to pass the test.
Now these include all 4,000 films between 1995 - 2015
(when you go to the source, you will see that each bar represents a movie)
Tarantino, the feminist
”Why Inclusiveness Matters
When women are not visible on-screen, we reinforce stereotypes off-screen. Hollywood is promoting a culture of female invisibility, where women can’t save the planet, win the big game, or fight the bad...wait for it...guy. Instead, they’re props who can only gab about men.”
When it comes to studios, European studios are way more progressive, especially in France. Canal+, for example, has about 200 films in their database and 'only' 34% fail the Bechdel Test.
Three US studios as example:
Columbia: 53%, 156 films
DreamWorks: 55%, 99 films
Walt Disney: 43%, 105 films
US studios that pass the green bar: Miramax, Weinstein, Dimension and only a few others.
Things haven’t changed much since 1995. Back then there were 18% women as directors, producer and writers, today it’s at 17%.
Source also mentions Spike Lee’s idea to use the Rooney Rule to change things a bit.

''A lot of the older actors on those films had known me since I was very young, and so had Alan,'' Radcliffe told The Daily Beast before the world premiere of [the Farting Corpse Movie].
''On the third film we had a lot of stuff to do together,'' continued Radcliffe, who was 11 years old when he won the part of J.K. Rowling's iconic boy wizard [ob..........................viously]. ''And he just treated me like an actor. And the feeling of getting that respect from somebody who's that much older and better than you really empowers you.''
This is too much. It's only been 10 days. ;__;
Who has the best ass, ONTD?
