Saturday Blog Showcase: Castles, Capes and Clones

So the name represents the basic triad of the Disney Universe as it now stands: Castles (traditional Disney with the princesses etc), Capes (Marvel superheroes), and Clones (Star Wars). Though one could also argue that perhaps the resemblance between Anna from Frozen and Rapunzel from Tangled NOPE, not going there! ;D

(Okay, for the record, I’m kidding. I don’t think the two characters look all that alike beyond a similarity in animation style that limits the way the faces look.  I was looking for an easy joke. MOVING on…)

So there you have it: The blog I have most recently discovered, http://www.castlescapesandclones.com/!  The subject matter covered is widely varying, with those three themes in common.  So you’ve got reviews of Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D., a TV show I have not watched (but given that I have a background as an 80s Marvel geek, one I am still peripherally interested in, in the same way I’m interested in the Avengers movies); Disney parks news; movie news and speculative essays on the roles of women and non-Caucasians in Disney releases;  and photos from all over various Disney parks, including Hong Kong Disney, so who is envious NOW huh? 😛 Sorry; that just slipped out. 🙂

The blog is updated regularly and thus far there’s a LOT to read up on.  I find the writing style engaging too, not just standard news reporting but with some real thought to it, like the post I linked to about Disney’s upcoming “Moana”.  It goes into a lot of detail and just in general some great pensive thoughts. The same can be said for all the posts I’ve read, even the Throwback Thursday about Tiana’s Showboat Jubilee.  The other thing is that the variety of post topics available keeps the blog from running out of steam or getting stale.  It’s just good content all around; check it out today!  Why not? It’s Saturday – new blog day! 😀
