Disney Halts On-demand Movie Sales On Itunes In Japan - Bloomberg

(AAPL) s online store in Japan after the two companies couldnt reach a final agreement on sales. Sales through iTunes of films, including Frozen and Thor: The Dark World, stopped yesterday and the company is trying to restart the service while rentals of existing titles are continuing, Disney said in a statement on its Japanese website. The Burbank, California-based company didnt say if other markets are affected. The two companies have enjoyed close ties in the past and Disney Chief Executive Officer Bob Iger has been a board member of Cupertino, California-based Apple since 2011. When video was first added to iTunes, the entertainment company was the first major studio to sign on with service. Apple co-founder Steve Jobs was a director at Disney prior to his death in 2011. He became the entertainment companys biggest shareholder after Disney in 2006 bought Pixar, the animation studio he helped create. Calls by Bloomberg News to the media offices of Disney and Apple in Japan seeking comment on the statement werent immediately returned. In addition to its film studios, Disneys Japan businesses include retail stores and a mobile phone business that sells branded devices and licenses content and games to wireless carriers in the country.

Disney Stuff - Disneyland 50th Anniversary Board Games (More Mouse) by Chris Barry

Photo by Chris Barry. I love the colors and the simplistic yet stylized graphics.The game board is very cool looking and features representations of each of Disneyland's five original lands. Travel through Frontierland in the game. Photo by Chris Barry. What a great find these games were. As a Disney collector and appreciator they are a homerun. They really are fantastic reproductions. The colors look as vibrant today as they did when I bought them and probably as brilliant as they did to someone back in the 50's and 60's when these games were actually available. It's a miracle that we haven't lost any pieces and that they are still in such beautiful shape after ten years.
