Now it can be told: Skipper Brodie's surprise sequel

The Year of a Million Dreams is finally coming to a close. I know lots of people are happy to see this particular marketing campaign ending, but I'm not one of them. From the imagination-capturing title to the ever-present possibility of winning a prize, I've found the whole idea a pretty fun gimmick. Sure, I never actually won one of the random prizes myself, but I've enjoyed seeing other people win their dream ears or riding the carousel with Mary Poppins.

Of course, it would also be hard to be bitter about not winning one of the random prizes after being named one of the winners of the Disney Dream Jobs, a tie-in competition within the Year of a Million Dreams campaign.

But that wasn't the only time The Year of a Million Dreams granted me a nice surprise. If it weren't for that campaign, there wouldn't have been a group of cast members called The Dream Squad tasked to dispense all those million dreams.

And if there hadn't been a Dream Squad, I might not have found myself - half a year away from the Dream Job event and on the opposite side of the country,surprised with a Dream Job sequel of sorts. It's a story I've been meaning to get around to for a while, but haven't shared with worldfamousjunglecruise.com's readers until now: Skipper Brodie's Christmas Sequel Surprise.

Taste the Adventure!

Your humble webskipper recently celebrated the anniversary of his birth. How old am I? Let's just say I'm 17 younger than The Jungle Cruise (also there's a non-too-subtle clue in the following piture). I'm not bringing it up so you send me presents, though. I just wanted to share this picture of the amazing Jungle Cruise cake my parents crafted for my family party:

Impossibly, it tasted as good as it looked.

Jungle Cruise movie docked?

A couple of months ago, Disney announced a bunch of their upcoming, high-profile movie projects. About the long-in-development Jungle Cruise movie? Not a peep.

But wait! Here's fresh word that Alfred Gough and Miles Millar, the writers last specifically mentioned to be working on the JC movie, are now hard at work on... a Robotech movie.

So no one is coming right out and saying The Jungle Cruise movie is no longer happening, but it's starting to look that way. If not, it's almost certainly been put on the back burner.
