There's a lot of activity in The Magic Kingdom (as if it every really slows down), and today I present to you another Disney Roundup here on The Rock Father. There's quick updates involving PLANES, JAKE AND THE NEVER LAND PIRATES, FROZEN, THE LITTLE MERMAID, and more. 

 On Sunday, November 24, DISNEY JUNIOR will debut their all-new series... the first Western for preschoolers, SHERIFF CALLIE'S WILD WEST. Take a look...

Sheriff Callie's Wild West stars Mandy Moore (Disney's "Tangled") as the voice of Callie, a loveable Calico cat sheriff who keeps the peace in her frontier town of Nice and Friendly Corners using her noodle lasso and cowgirl know-how. Whether teaching her trusty deputy Peck (a woodpecker voiced by "High School Musical's Lucas Grabeel) a lesson about good sportsmanship through a game of horseshoes, or helping her horse Sparky regain his confidence after he slips and falls during a barrel race, Callie always comes to the aid of her townsfolk and in the process, imparts lessons about good morals, manners and social ethics for kids age 2-7.

Disney's PLANES arrives on Blu-ray and DVD next Tuesday (November 19), and today a couple of bonus clips have hit the web - two deleted scenes from the film...

PLANES is also featured in the new issue of the LiveSoFab Digital Magazine. I previously did a feature on Mattel's PLANES toys back in September.

frozenappWith Disney's FROZEN due out later this month (in theaters November 27), the team at Disney Publishing Worldwide has released a new installment of their popular App series, with FROZEN: STORYBOOK DELUXE. The App is designed to encourage beginning readers with various storytelling options: Read on your own, Record your own voice, and Listen to the narration with text. In an all-new feature, kids can flip their device upside-down to hear the Frozen story told by dueling sisters Anna and Elsa. Available for iOS Apps here.

On November 19, JAKE AND THE NEVER LAND PIRATES: NEVER LAND RESCUE will arrive on DVD, bringing a new full-length adventure from the popular Disney Junior series home for the very first time. A pair of clips has arrived, and can be viewed below...
