I've been in love with Into the Woods for years. I've seen it performed several times, watched the DVD of the original Broadway production many times, and lost count of how often I've listened to the original cast album.
And given that 'Maleficent' is now the highest grossing live-action film that Angelina Jolie has ever starred in, it's clear that these late-in-the-game changes that Robert Stromberg, Joe Roth and John Lee Hancock did right by that A-lister. Though Peter Capaldi has a very different opinion.
Up until two days ago we kept up the facade that Santa is in fact real, even if we weren't sure what our son thought. I mean, the more we play it up, the more he'll want to believe it too, right?
You don't have to sacrifice success for love. I chose love first. But I'm still discovering my worth, finding my voice, piping up and declaring my independence online every day.
When it came to proving his "Disney geek" street cred last January, Adam Sanderson -- Head of D23: The Official Disney Fan Club -- had just the secret weapon in mind.
Meryl Streep is a truly amazing woman.There she was on the Academy stage after last night's screening of the new Disney musical film, INTO THE WOODS, and the 65-year old actress was looking neat and nifty, speaking wittily, after the audience had spent the previous two hours watching her play the unkempt Witch in this wondrous film.
DPRK Hackers. Fast, reliable service without a smile. Ask for Mr. Kim. Film publicity, high quality plutonium, fully armed warheads, labor (ask about our detention facilitates ) and basketball camps.

As you've probably already heard, Disney Parks and Resorts go kind of Christmas Crazy this time of year with character-specific decorations giving each land at the Parks an especially festive feel for the holiday season. But what you may not have heard is that Disney Infinity fans are now also embracing the spirit of the season.
"I love being part of the Disney family. Did I mention that I'm the youngest person ever to be inducted as a Disney Legend? That's a huge honor that I take very, very seriously," Anika said.
Video games are no longer just a pastime for kids -- they are, in their own right, entertainment giants. With engaging characters, intricate storylines, and a ton of different ways to play, video games provide kids with endless hours of excitement.
'Tis the season for all of us technogeeks to raise our children (and grandchildren) in our image. This means, of course, our Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or Christmas gift list needs to be dominated by a few items geared toward geek development.
If you could go back 30 years and give yourself one piece of advice regarding retirement planning, what would you say?
When people say Christmas is a "state of mind" this is what they mean. It's that easy-going, love-thy-neighbor, tip-more-generously, forgive-a-little-deeper, smile-for-no-reason, kind of season. That's what the spirit of Christmas is and what goes along with it is music. It's the magical combo: Christmas music + Traffic = Tolerable.
Just so we're clear, I've been a humongous Disney fan ever since I was a kid. I've probably visited Mickey's playground three dozen times in the past several decades, and for so long it really did seem like the most magical place on Earth. But no more.
So, you're one of the 5 people left on planet earth who hasn't seen Frozen yet. Congratulations - you're a renegade. But as this holiday season is upon us, the ice princesses of Disney are showing no signs of "letting go" of the spotlight.
