'Star Wars: Detours' Clips from Lucasfilm and 'Robot Chicken' Creators

"Star Wars Detours" is an animated comedy that explores what daily life is like in a galaxy far, far away. There are no Empires striking back or attacking clones here. Instead, "Star Wars Detours" focuses on the universe’s regular folks and their everyday problems… which, to be fair, do frequently involve famous bounty hunters, crazed Ewoks, and even a Dark Lord of the Sith.

Welcome to "Star Wars: Detours": the other side of the stars, between the wars.

There is no actual Robot Chicken content inside Aquaman No. 12. "Our plot is deadly serious," notes Johns. "It's part 2 of our story 'The Other…

Batman Theme - The Metal Version

Tim Burton's 1989 'Batman' film featured the great work from Danny Elfman for it's theme music. It was so well received that it was also used in 'Batman: The Animated Series'. If you ever wondered, or not, how it would sound with a little more kick wonder no more. Composer/guitarist, Mat Graham, has taken the theme and added a jamming guitar riff to spice it up. Enjoy.

Finally! Dwight Howard Traded to the Lakers

After months of speculation, rumors and every trade scenario ever imagined Dwight Howard was finally traded to the Los Angeles Lakers from the Orlando Magic. Yesterday, Yahoo Sports reported that a 4-team deal was in the works that would bring Howard to the Lakers. Besides the Lakers and Magic the other teams involved included Philadelphia 76ers and Denver Nuggets. Unlike countless other reports over the last several months this report had more weight than others and negotiations were moving fast. Here are some of the details:

Lakers get Howard, Chris Duhon, and Earl Clark from Orlando.Magic get Arron Afflalo, Al Harrington from Denver, Josh McRoberts, Christian Eyenga from Los Angeles Nikola Vucevic, Moe Harkless from Philadelphia, three first-round picks and a second-round pick.Nuggets get Andre Iguodala from Phildelphia.76ers get Andrew Bynum from the Los Angeles and Jason Richardson from Orlando. 
The Lakers landing Howard always made the most sense but inexplicably Howard had his…

Disney Parks Unveils New Annie Leibovitz Disney Dream Portraits

Today we’re excited to share two new images by Annie Leibovitz from our ongoing Disney Dream Portrait series. All the portraits feature well-known celebrities transformed into the roles of famous Disney characters, and now, in a first for the series, we’re featuring characters who originated in our parks! But first, Russell Brand stars as Peter Pan’s arch nemesis, Captain Hook, narrowly escaping the jaws of the hungry crocodile who has chased him for years. The caption reads, “Where every moment leaves you hungry for more.” Looking at this one, can’t you almost hear the “tick-tock?”

“There’s a little matter I forgot to mention…beware of hitchhiking ghosts!” From the Haunted Mansion attraction, Jack Black, Will Ferrell and Jason Segel star as Phineas, Ezra and Gus, better known to millions around the world as the Hitchhiking Ghosts. The caption reads, “Where you can go on the ride of your afterlife.” If you’re not careful, one of them may follow you home!
