    "Hey! You! With the face covering!" "They all have face coverings." "Well, I made them all look. Now they know who's in charge." The Galactic Empire's shock troops have been reduced to enforcing social distancing by performing silly skits.

    Star Wars Stormtroopers encourage social distancing at reopened Disney Springs
    Their aim may be off but their message is on point.

    CEO Bob Chapek said in a statement, "The killing of George Floyd has forced our nation to once again confront the long history of injustice that black people in America have suffered. It is critical that we stand together, speak out and do everything in our power to ensure that acts of racism and violence are never tolerated." Okay – but can any amount of money end racism and violence? I don't think so.

    Georgia Merry, born in 1995 in England, has been singing and performing since she was six. At age seven, she starred in a production of Anastasia. She has her own YouTube channel filled with multiple-screen videos of her impersonating Disney characters and singing their songs (and providing harmony for herself). Here is her medley of songs from Moana – and yes, she even impersonates Maui, Tamatoa, Pua and Hei Hei. Hurry and watch!

    And here is her medley from Frozen 2:

    Splash Mountain, a popular attraction at Disneyland and Walt Disney World, features Br'er Rabbit, Br'er Bear and Br'er Fox, characters from the 1946 Disney movie Song Of The South. James Bascomb, Hattie McDaniel and many others who appeared in the film said it is not racist – but Disney refuses to release the movie on DVD or Blu-ray or make it available on Disney+. Following the death of George Floyd, many Disney fans now want to see Splash Mountain re-themed to feature Tiana, Disney's first African American princess. What a fine idea. Maybe Disney can also have a black Donald Duck, a black Olaf and seven black dwarfs.

    Shanghai Disneyland reopened in May. Disney plans to reopen its 11 other theme parks in July. More than 7,000 Walt Disney World employees – pardon me, "cast members" – want Disney to reconsider reopening the Florida park. The COVID-19 virus has killed 3,285 people in the state. In Orange County, home of Walt Disney World, there have been 6,056 confirmed cases of coronavirus and 53 deaths.

    Disneyland opened July 17, 1955. Disneyland closed March 14, 2020 in an effort to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Disneyland was planning to reopen July 17, 2020. Was – but not now.

    Br'er Rabbit is not in his "Laughing Place" today. He's in his Crying Place, lamenting how political correctness has led to the demise of another classic theme park attraction.

    Those "savages" and "headhunters" may soon follow Br'er Brer, Br'er Fox and Br'er Rabbit to the Disney character graveyard.

    Following Splash Mountain ride redesign, some call for Disney to change Jungle Cruise next

    A virus that originated in China has forced another delay in the release of the live-action Mulan movie. Oh, the irony!

    The Walt Disney Company lost nearly $5 billion in the last quarter. They can recoup that money if 167,000,000 people pay $29.99 to see Mulan. 他们能做到吗?

    Mulan is finally heading to Disney+...for $29.99
    CNN, Aug 4 2020 6:10 PM ET

    Disney's Mulan has been delayed multiple times this year because of the coronavirus outbreak but audiences will finally be able to see the blockbuster soon. It just may not be in the theaters. Disney announced today that the remake of the 1998 animated classic will be heading to Disney+, the company's new streaming service, for an additional fee of $29.99. The film will be available on September 4. Mulan will be released simultaneously in theaters in markets where Disney+ is not available and, of course, where theaters are open.
