First Look and Review of Nick’s Escape From Mr. Lemoncello’s Library!

Books can take you anywhere. The open doors, allowing us to escape the ordinary and seek out the extraordinary.
To be fair, even though books being recognized as such a linchpin for worlds of wonder. They aren’t always the only way we get to learn, explore new worlds, grow and sometimes fall in love. Any story told no matter the medium has proven more than capable of that.
There’s nothing more powerful and enchanted then a good story. One that leaves an impact on you well after the stories ended. Characters that you know you embody and adore to no end.
But sometimes we all kind of take that advantage. How powerful stories and even characters can be. And now even something seemingly mundane as a library. Well even it can be thrilling and heat pounding.
So where I am I going with this? Talks about stories, characters and libraries. As amazing as each is in their own right, when they are brought together some crazy things can and will happen.
Like in Nickelodeon’s new television film Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library. Biased from the children novel of the same name pended by author Chris Grabenstein. Almost a year ago, I first wrote about how this film was in production. Now, a year after the fact the film is making waves on Nick on Monday, October 9th.

It Truly is a Duck-blur (Recap on Ducktales News)

ducktales key visua

Life is like a hurricane in Duckburgh- but really, would we want that any other way?!

If there is one thing that I have never counted myself as, is that of a optimist.  Yet when it comes to the upcoming reboot of “DuckTales”, I have been nothing but purely optimistic. As highly out of character as that is.

But it has been clear since the start that this was a reboot driven by passionate people who are going and giving it their all. I would not even be shocked to think that everyone involved with the new series has their own personal stories that link back to the original animated  series, if not the source material comics.

DuckTales’ Trailer Arrives Along With a Second Season Greenlit


“You use to be a big deal, whatever happened to you?”

There have only been a small handful of instances, lines and moments that have hit me over the head. Sending a sensation of surprise and a moment or true realization that is hard to put into words at times.

The most foremost example of this was  being that of “Madoka Magica”. But this one line in the brand-new trailer for the upcoming reboot trailer of “DuckTales” really hit home hard.

DuckTales’ Voice Cast Released

Yes, in short I am basically blogging every major and minor detail regarding the new upcoming reboot of “DuckTales”.  And from the looks of Twitter as I write this, I am far from the only one going duck-blur over the upcoming summer 2017 series.

Following last week’s first new visual and teaser. Plus Funko’s announcement that a wave of Disney Afternoon series “DuckTales” and “Darkwing Duck” would be released sometime in the coming year. It has been a truly fantastic week and half.

Despite yet seeing the character actually animated, there has been rather critical part of the production that we had not heard anything of. In short, the voice cast.

Back in May of last year, when I first did my big write up on the then off-in-the distant reboot over on BSCKids. I made specific note of the voice cast.

As on March twenty0-third of 2015 it came to light from Terry McGovern -voice of Launchpad McQuack in both DT and DW- that he had not been asked to reprise his role as the pilot. Nor would any of the original cast members.

It was a fact that I quickly disliked- after all at least give them the choice to return to the characters they helped bring to life. As a the massive fan I am of the series it is hard to image anyone else but that voice cast taking over for the characters I love so dearly.

The fact that none of them will keep their chapter going has been one that has stuck at the back of my mind. And as more and more details of this new series has come to light the voice cast has been one of my biggest points of wondering. Will they be using other Disney talent? Voice actors that have not worked on Disney properties? There was no way to even try to make a educated guess. So I made no point to. Granted, there was a few voice actors that I did hope I might see join the cast.

Now there is no more questions of who will be behind the mics.

Now not only do we know our main cast’s voices, but we get to hear them sing- and sing nothing more befitting than the series’ iconic theme.

Scrooge McDuck- David Tennan

Huey- Danny Pudi

Dewey- Ben Schwartz

Louie- Bobby Moynihan

Webby Vanderquack- Kate Micucci

Launchpad McQuack- Beck Bennett

Mrs. Beakley- Toks Olagundoye


They do sound good together.

Before I seen this news, I had never heard of any of the new voice cast before. I had seen Toks Olagundoye in “Castle” and in “NCIS” during her appearances. Outside of that, nothing. I am not sure how the characters might sound and how everything; the animation, the writing and voices will mesh together.

But I do look forward to seeing everything fall into place. The only shame- summer is still a ways away.

First Look at Upcoming “DuckTales” Reboot


So, so much fangirling…cannot even. First this bit of news and the latest episode of- well, that is another post.

Last February news broke that Disney’s “DuckTales” was set to be reboot. Since then there has been a continually constant amount of hype for the upcoming series. But since then there has been very minimal outside two visuals.

Now, after a wait that feels like it has been never-ending. We finally get some more solicited details- and a new visual.

Chapter One

I keep thinking what kind of clever one-liner I should use to open this. The first one that came to mind is under lock and key so that is no good. So here we are, somewhat awkwardly setting the stage for a new tale.

For someone who has been at this for a while introductions should be no brainers, right? Wrong.

I have to admit, though. I do seriously missing blogging. The feeling of my fingers dashing across the key-board and letting my thoughts and feelings free is one of the greatest sensations I have experienced. With that, and my oh-so awkward nature and camera shy state the idea of starting a YouTube channel was madly dismissed as fast as it came.

Do not get me wrong; YouTube, and moreover, YouTubers are great and all. But for me, well, it would be far from ideal. I am nothing short of Akane (“Castle Town Dandelion”) when it comes to camera’s being drawn. Rushing out of view and hiding from the lenses. Written words always are somewhat comforting. Strange, I know.

So all that long-winded write up was nothing short of me beating around the bush.

So, hi.

It is me, Ella.

Some of you might know me from, back from Winx 4 Life, BSCKids or anywhere else in between. Yes, I am once more having a go at a new blog. Not that long ago I did some minor blogging over at a blog of the same name on Blogger. But somehow it just felt trying working on that platform. I am not sure as to why it is.

Moreover, as you can see I wanted to start anew. So here we are. A new chapter is starting…
