Shoot, where did the time go?
Honestly, with work starting back, time just keeps slipping away from me, even though I'm part time now. One of the biggest reasons is that I'm sure you all know by now that Geocities is closing down (thanks a lot, you bunch of heartless MORONS!
), so I've been trying my best to create a new Sailor Sirius website and uploading all her stuff there. So far, it's about 96% done, and I know it's not the best looking site, but....I tried.
Please tell me what you all think, and any suggestions, I'm not to proud to take them. The New Sailor Sirius Site
I've also been uploading my new original story here, Osiris Rising, about a young girl who gets involved in a battle of good and evil with the powerful and still kicking Egyptian gods. I truly hope you all give my original story a chance, as I've worked VERY hard on this with Egyptian research and modifying the Egyptian mythology just a little. Any feedback is of the upmost importance to me, because I do plan to at least TRY to have this and The Dark Fires Of Cyphyrus professionally published one day, since they are NOT fanfictions and I can legally do it. Is there anyone here who's been published before? I'd like some advice and tips too.
I don't know if I'll make a separate website for them, since I know that once your work is publish, you are not allowed to put them up publicly. Do you think I should still? Let me know.
Anyway, on another note, I have LOTS and LOTS of Disney's The Princess And The Frogs news! Some of you might have heard of them already, but still, I like to keep the followers of this AMAZING movie informed!
First up is the new and longer trailer for it, showing new clips and snippets of the songs in it. I SO love Mama Odie already!
Check it out:[link]
And here is a featurette introducing us to the newest edition of the Disney Princess line, Tiana!
There's also another just released featurette that delves more into the characters of Tiana and Naveen, and how their love grew:[link]
I'm loving Naveen more and more, even in his frog form. Yes Naveen, kissing would definitely be niiiiice.
There's a new poster out, for those who haven't see it yet, and you can check it out here:[link]
The Princess And The Frog will be released in a Little Golden Book edition, and the artist of the book has put up some pics of the book's cover and back on her website. You can see it here: [link]
Next up is some scans from The Princess And The Frog: The Essential Guide, containing the book version of the movie. Now this is a warning to others, the pics are SPOILERS for the movie, so if you don't want to know what happens, please don't look.
Beautiful..just simply beautiful.

A recent clip released shows how animators came up with the look for Prince Naveen, as well as how they came up with his frog form. I thought it was funny when mentioned about the Jonas eyebrows, because he asked his teen-aged daughter what a handsome man would look like, and she said the Jonas Brothers!
Take a look. Sorry if it cuts off...:[link]
Oh, and also, please don't forget to go by the official Princess And The Frog site, where you can catch new clips and the older clips in high definition:[link]
The Princess And The Frog was featured in Disney's D23 Expo in California earlier this month, and a photo was taken of the PaTF booth. It's SO cute!
The first 30 minutes of the movie was reviewed at the Expo, and you can read the review here. Again, SPOILER WARNING if you don't want to know what happens:[link]
Here's a lovely pic of an actress who will be playing Princess Tiana at the Princess And The Frog Showboat Jubilee special that will run in Disneyland from November until January 6th. I think she looks just a tab bit old to be 19.....Tiana's age in the movie...but she's lovely nontheless:[link]
Earlier in September, the Disney Channel released a second Secret Tour Sneak Peek of the movie (6-10), and Daytimesky200
has the whole thing uploaded on her Youtube account. You can check it out and squeal at how cute Naveen and Tiana are when they argue!
Now tell the truth, what's a movie or a hero without a decent villain?
Disney has released a small featurette on Dr. Facilier, the villian of the movie. Personally I think he's one of the coolest villains around, and it's excited to know that the voice actor, Keith David, had experience with Disney. He was the voice of Goliath on Disney's Gargoyles.
Go check it out for yourself:[link]
And some news about the soundtrack:
"Grammy-winning artist Ne-Yo will be part of the magic of Disney forthcoming film The Princess and the Frog.
According to the Hollywood Reporter he will write and sing a yet unnamed track that will be used on the film's closing credits and released as single to promote the film this December."
And last but not least, Anika Noni Rose, the official voice actress for Tiana, made a surprise visit to the opening ceremonies of Disney's D23 Expo in California earlier in September. She even sang a song, much to the delight of the audience. You can read all about it here:[link]
There's also a new featurette about Princess Tiana on the newly released "Enchanted Tales" DVD release:[link]
Phew, talk about your major updates!
I hope you enjoyed them.
Nothing really much new with me, personally. I just wanted to take this time to say thanks to those who's been supporting Sailor Sirius and giving me much needed criticism and advice. I hope everyone had a great Labor Day in America, and please continue to drop by for new stuff!
