Disney Books: Disneyland and Descendants

Disney Books

Some more review copies have shown up. I was able to preview Russell’s Disneyland book and it’s one that most Disneyland fans are going to really enjoy. The Disney Descendants books just arrived and they look like they’re very well designed. I hope the franchise does well. This might not be the normal Disney book list that you expect from ImagiNERDing, but we’re still all about the Disney books!

Disneyland Book

Russell released volume one (Seen, Un-Seen Disneyland) last year and he’s returned with a new book that looks at even more Disneyland details than before!

Russel’s Disneyland book looks at a lot of the hidden details as well as the everyday details that go unnoticed, or un-seen, by most Disneyland visitors. Russel shares a lot of the history of the details and it’s a great introduction to the park, as well as a great book for hardcore DIsneyland fans.

Also, Russell has about 72 billion photos in the book!

More Seen, Un-Seen Disneyland: An Un-Official, Un-Authorized Look At What You see At Disneyland, But Never Really See by Russell D. Flores. 2015.  270 pages.


Disney Descendants Books

This new series looks at four of the descendants of some of Disney’s most well-known villains. The descendants are given the chance to leave the Isle of the Lost and attend a prep school on Aurodon. Obviously, the descendants have other plans.

Are you going to pick up any of these new books? What do you think about the Disney Descendants franchise?


Star Wars, Tomorrowland and Disney Books

I’ve got some more review copies from Disney Publishing, Coconut Press and Bonaventure Press. Reviews will be coming shortly on Communicore Weekly and here! Any that you’re looking forward to reading?

  • Star Wars: Dark Disciple by Christie Golden – this is a title based on several scripts for the Star Wars: The Clone Wars series that were never produced. It’s a really interesting read that takes us into the psyche of Asajj Ventress.

New Disney Review Copies

Two more review items arrived at ImagiNERDing HQ!

The Art of Disney: The Golden Age (1937-1961)100 Collectible Postcards

Front of the box.
Back of the box.
This is a collection of 100 collectible postcards that are completely gorgeous. The set is made up of concept art and frames from Disney’s golden age of animation (1937-1961).

Disney Declassified: Tales of Real Life Disney Scandals, Sex, Accidents and Deaths

Aaron Goldberg’s new book looks promising. Not many people have covered the troubles that Disney has run into without coming off as having an agenda. David Koenig’s books (Mouse Tales and Realityland) are great examples of writing about the the Disney theme park experience without being too negative or condemning, especially the legal battles.

Are you going to purchase either of these?

Guide to the Magic for Kids by Tim Foster

I received a review copy of Tim Foster’s Guide to the Magic and I’m finally cracking the spine, so to speak.

 

The book is really well-laid out and looks like a fantastic guidebook for young children and tweens to use before, during and after their Walt Disney World vacation.

A full review is coming soon!

 

The Art of Disney Frozen by Charles Solomon

I just finished The Art of Frozen (Chronicle Books) by Charles Solomon. It truly was a gorgeous book that shed a lot of light onto the creation of Disney Frozen. If you’re a fan of the film, then you need to pick up a copy of the book. A full review is coming to Communicore Weekly and Mice Chat.

The History of Animation, The Boys, Waking Sleeping Beauty, Walt & El Grupo and Fantasia/Fantasia 2000 all showed up at Imaginerding HQ. It looks like it is going to be an amazing Thanksgiving weekend!
