What do Captain Hook and Tom Hiddleston have in common? A love for expressing themselves in song, apparently.
It might surprise some that, given his cinematic success in the last few years(i.e. Thor, Avengers), Tom Hiddleston has a role in the fifth installment of Disney’s Fairy Series The Pirate Fairy, headed straight to Blu-ray/DVD this April.
Hiddleston and Christina Hendricks (Mad Men) voice a young Captain Hook and Fairy Zarina (respectively) who steals pixie dust from Tinkerbell (Mae Whitman, Parenthood) for certain nefarious reasons (pillaging and plundering, you know, “Pirate Stuff”). Add this to the list of villains that Hiddleston seems to relish playing. For an actor who has a reputation for being the ultimate good guy, he certainly loves to be bad, doesn’t he? Oh well, he always makes for a villain you can’t help but love and his rendition of the legendary Captain Hook is no exception. Check out a glimpse of Hiddleston’s take on Peter Pan’s foe below! Catch The Pirate Fairy on blu-ray and DVD April 1st!
Is Disney’s Maleficent here yet?
We can expect a full length trailer for the upcoming Disney film, Maleficent, tomorrow. Meanwhile, get a sneak peak at this new promo in which Angelina Jolie’s character confesses to having wings once, like the other fairies. The highly-anticipated Maleficent is set to tell the backstory of the villain to the 1959 classic Sleeping Beauty. As Entertainment Weekly stated, fans of the original film know that the character Maleficent is more than a dark sorceress, she’s actually a dark fairy. It appears that in expanding her mythology, Disney will reveal why, as a fairy, this classic villain never possessed wings like the others (i.e. Flora, Fauna and Merryweather).
It was pretty easy to guess, based on previous trailers, that Maleficent’s origin story will set the stage for the vengeful curse placed on Aurora — and it appears that the loss of her wings was possibly one of many inciting incidents behind the Dark Fairy’s cruel prediction.

Disney’s newest hit musical, “Frozen” has garnered massive success due to the brilliant music as well as the new model for heroines. But the movie wasn’t originally planned that way. Who do we have to thank for the new hit disney film? The married songwriters, based on a recent interview with the power couple, Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez.

Whoa, whoa, whoa, hold up! Pirates of the Caribbean 5? Do we giddily jump up and down or do we roll our eyes? Maybe do a little of both? At Larkable, at least 2 of us have a wall dedicated to PotC complete with posters handed out at premieres, cast posters, souvenirs from the Caribbean, and a rum bottle, and I might have gone as Elizabeth Swan for multiple Halloweens, but do we really need a 5th Pirates of the Caribbean? Larkable says…yes. Pirates of…
