Disney's Magical Blu-ray Tour

Disney, Panasonic, and Blu-ray toured North America, showing the world what Blu-ray High Definition is all about. Kidzworld took a closer look.

Disney's Dream

Walt Disney once said, "If you can dream it, you can do it." Just as Disneyland has long been known as the place where dreams come true, Disney's unmatched collection of classic movies truly define what dreams are made of. Whether it's the dream of being swept off your feet by Prince Charming, or exploring the wonders at the bottom of the ocean, Disney has always had you covered, and now they're giving you even more!

Disney, Panasonic, and Blu-Ray have teamed up to show off their latest dream-maker, powerful Blu-ray technology. On Disney's Magical Blu-ray Tour, representatives for Disney, Panasonic, and Blu-ray traveled North America wowing crowds with everything Blu-ray has to offer. From presentations demonstrating Blu-ray's incredible sound and picture quality, to interactive demos and games, no one left the experience without being thoroughly impressed. Watching Finding Nemo in Blu-ray High Definition on a 50 inch Panasonic plasma is truly a mind-blowing experience, and interactive Ratatouille and Pirates of the Caribbean games and features proved just what the new technology is capable of.

The partnership's goal is give the entire family an unparalleled entertainment experience. Emma Roberts, the Disney representative on tour, summed it up nicely when she said, "You see everything that the director wanted you to see." Just like DVD technology surpassed CDs, Blu-Ray will eventually be the rule, rather than the exception, as more families switch to HD Plasma TVs from Panasonic or buy Sony's Playstation 3, which has Blu-Ray players built in. Like Walt Disney said, "We keep moving forward, opening new doors, doing new things because we are curious, and curiousity keeps leading us down new paths." The bottom line is that Blu-ray is set to revolutionize how you watch and experience movies.

I thought it'd be cool for all the anime fans if there was a forum where we could find friends who like the anime we do :) Personally I really need some more friends who like what I do. Maybe you'll find someone who shares your love for something really obscure! Including manga too. To start off here are some favorites of mine: (just because one isn't here doesn't mean I might not like it too so everyone please share yours!) Black Butler D. Gray-Man No.6 Yu-Gi-Oh Seraph of the End Puella Magi Madoka Magica Horimiya Kekkai Sensen Free! Kyoukai no Kanata Tamako Market (especially its movie!!) My Little Monster Mekakucity Actors (and that whole music project that it's based on) Toradora! haven't finished reading/watching but like: (if you like it I'll make it a priority :)) Akagami no Shirayuki-hime Pandora Hearts Kyou Kara Maou Kuroko no Basket Noragami Kiznaiver  Bungou Stray Dogs The World Is Still Beautiful Ajin Haikyuu!! Aldnoah.Zero Princess Tutu That's all I could think of for now! What are yours? Note: No bashing other people's faves! Have debates/flame wars elsewhere. (Especially about Sword Art Online. Let's not even touch that)

Which channel do you think as of today is the best channel for kids today on cable. I would probably go with Disney XD. It's just as good as it was back in 2009 in my opinion and it has a great selection of shows. What do you think is the definitive channel for kids in 2016?
