Disney Twenty-Three goes "Into the Woods" with Meryl Streep, Chris Pine, Emily Blunt and Anna Kendrick


DISNEY TWENTY-THREE TRAVELS INTO THE WOODS, FEATURING EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEWS WITH MERYL STREEP, EMILY BLUNT, ANNA KENDRICK AND CHRIS PINE

ALONG WITH A LOOK AT THE MAKING OF THIS SPECTACULAR MOVIE MUSICAL, D23 GOES “BEHIND THE SEAS” ON DISNEY CRUISE LINE AND REVEALS SECRETS BEHIND DISNEYLAND’S HOLIDAY TRANSFORMATION

To celebrate Disney’s big-screen adaptation of the hit Broadway musical Into the Woods, Disney twenty-three, the publication of D23: The Official Disney Fan Club, got all the thrilling details from the stars and creative team behind the new breathtaking, upcoming film. In exclusive interviews with Disney twenty-three, stars Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, Anna Kendrick and Chris Pine, along with director Rob Marshall and screenplay author James Lapine, detail the excitement and challenges of bringing the Tony® Award-winning musical to the big screen, including explaining how they played a game of hide-and-seek with some (fake) witchy fingernails and how the team gracefully—and sometimes hilariously—handled Blunt’s pregnancy during filming.

Disney twenty-three’s Winter issue, available exclusively to Gold Members of D23, also includes a fascinating look “behind the seas” at Disney Cruise Line, with dazzling photography that reveals places guests never see while on board, as well as interviews with the people who keep everything shipshape. “It’s Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas” unlocks the secrets that enable the creative teams at Disneyland to bring the holidays to life, seemingly overnight. Director Steve Purcell unwraps the newest Disney•Pixar television treasure, Toy Story That Time Forgot, which airs on ABC December 2. Star Hayley Atwell and producer Jeph Loeb unleash the action of Marvel’s Agent Carter, also coming to ABC, which brings one of Captain America: The First Avenger’s most thrilling stars to the small screen.

Also included in the Winter issue of Disney twenty-three:

  • The fascinating tale of Herman J. Schultheis, whose personal notebooks detailing Disney’s first golden age of animation are showcased in a new book by Disney animation scholar John Canemaker
  • A Frozen-influenced Adventures By Disney vacation in Norway
  • Twenty-three reasons fans will love the new Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes game

Rebels Recon #3: Inside "Fighter Flight"


Rebels Recon #3 features an in-depth look at the Star Wars Rebels episode "Fighter Flight," with a recap, cast and crew interviews, and answers to your Twitter questions -- plus an exclusive preview of next week's installment of Star Wars Rebels, "Rise of the Old Masters!"

In "Fighter Flight," Hera sends the ever-bickering Ezra and Zeb on a quality-time supply run -- which includes bringing back an impossible-to-find meiloorun fruit -- and the two have a run-in with some stormtroopers. As a result, Zeb finds himself in the cockpit of a TIE fighter. At New York Comic Con 2014, Vanessa Marshall (voice of Hera), talked about what her character brings to the Ghost crew, which is on display in this episode. "I think what makes Hera so cool," Marshall says, "is that she helps these characters discover things they didn't really know they had inside to get this job done."

The plot of "Fighter Flight" comes from a surprising source: Star Wars toys. "The whole idea for "Fighter Flight," executive producer Dave Filoni tells Lucasfilm's Andi Gutierrez, "was based around having a TIE fighter toy as a kid and putting heroes in it instead of villains...I played out that scenario a hundred times as a child." And the dynamic between Zeb and Ezra that's explored in the episode is key to defining their relationship.

"It's fun. I think of it as the whole big brother, little brother thing," says Taylor Gray, who plays Ezra. Steve Blum, the voice of Zeb, explains that their friendship is growing -- and that he's fascinated by Ezra. The episode also offers a new, close-up look at TIE fighters, which Blum was especially excited to see -- and Filoni reveals the design inspiration behind Star Wars Rebels' TIEs.

Finally, the Lucasfilm Story Group's Pablo Hidalgo addresses a new fan question: why does C-3PO have a silver leg in "Fighter Flight," when last we saw him in Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith, he was completely gold?

Star Wars Rebels: "Igniting a Legacy" Featurette



Star Wars Rebels executive producer Dave Filoni and CG supervisor Joel Aron discuss how they created lightsabers that match the look of Jedi weapons from Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope.

As the time period for Star Wars Rebels is close to A New Hope, the show's creators wanted to match the visuals accordingly. For Aron, this was especially important with the look of the lightsaber. "That's the one thing that represents being a Jedi," he says. "I wanted the lightsaber to have that same type of feeling and energy it had in A New Hope." Through extensive research, including conversations with original lightsaber creator Roger Christian, Aron figured out how the Jedi weapon was originally created. As a result, Kanan's lighstaber blade closely resembles those found in the original Star Wars, from glow to a slight vibration.
