Tonight’s Super Bowl featured new looks at a couple of Disney’s upcoming movies. Remember, these Disney movies will PremEAR at sea on the same dates.
Muppets Most Wanted
Kicking off 2014 will be Disney’s Muppets Most Wanted which takes the entire Muppets gang on a global tour, selling out grand theaters in some of Europe’s most exciting destinations, including Berlin, Madrid and London. But mayhem follows the Muppets overseas, as they find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper headed by Constantine—the World’s Number One Criminal and a dead ringer for Kermit—and his dastardly sidekick Dominic, aka Number Two, portrayed by Ricky Gervais. The film stars Tina Fey as Nadya, a feisty prison guard, and Ty Burrell as Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon.
I must say, Muppets Most Wanted in name, would lend itself perfectly to a new version of Midship Detective Agency on the Disney Fantasy.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier
On April 4, 2014 the first of Marvel’s Avengers, Steve Rogers, returns to cinemas with Captain America: The Winter Soldier. After the cataclysmic events in New York with The Avengers, Captain America is living quietly in Washington, D.C. and trying to adjust to the modern world. But when a S.H.I.E.L.D. colleague comes under attack, Steve becomes embroiled in a web of intrigue that threatens to put the world at risk. Joining forces with the Black Widow, Captain America struggles to expose the ever-widening conspiracy while fighting off professional assassins sent to silence him at every turn. When the full scope of the villainous plot is revealed, Captain America and the Black Widow enlist the help of a new ally, the Falcon. However, they soon find themselves up against an unexpected and formidable enemy–the Winter Soldier.
With Disney Cruise Line’s new Avengers Academy, the place to be on April 4th is the Disney Magic!
While not technically a big game commercial I felt it was still worth noting that Disney’s Maleficent starting Angelina Jolie will take over theaters on May 30, 2014. Maleficent is the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the 1959 classic Sleeping Beauty and will reveal the events that hardened Maleficent’s heart and drove her to curse the baby, Aurora. The latest trailer featuring Lana Del Rey’s Once Upon A Dream cover debuted last week during the Grammy’s.
Which film are you looking forward to seeing the most in 2014?
Malificent! (Mostly because I’m scheduled to be on the Wonder and I’m hoping for a PremEAR at Sea!)
Malificent because I will be on the transatlantic cruise from 5/19 to 5/31. However, when calling DCL, the rep provided a list of the movies that will be onboard and Malificent was not on the list despite premiering on 5/30. Are new premiers ALWAYS shown onboard on the date of release? Could the rep be wrong about the movie list?
There may be an issue in that the copy of the film will not be available when the Magic sets sail on 5/19. The films do typically PremEAR at sea on the same dates they open on land. You could try calling back to see if you get a different answer, or inquire specifically about Maleficent on your sailing.
Will Maleficent premear at sea on the fantasy May 30th?
