Welcome back to Toy Aisle, io9's weekly round up of all the fabulous new toys just waiting to drain our wallets of their precious monetary fluids.

Last night we got a glorious Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer, packed with new looks at the war to come between the Resistance and the First Order.

Once Upon a Time returns tonight for its seventh season, during which most of the original characters are gone and we’ve left Storybrooke for good. It’s a recipe for a mighty big mess, but fans know that’s just par for the course. Once Upon a Time is one of the wackiest shows on TV, thanks to the way it pulls…
If there’s one constant truth in the Disney Pixar films, it’s that Cars will never make sense. Every Cars movie that comes out only adds to the confusion, and the latest tidbits that’ll stick a potato in your tailpipe have to do with why there are no motorcycles in Cars world, but there are fairy tales.
This week saw the launch of IDW and Disney’s brand new DuckTales comic, based on the newly-returned—and utterly fantastic—animated series. It’s a great way to squeeze a little extra Duckburg goodness into your week between episodes. But so far, it’s missing some of the elements that’s made the new show so great.
There are some people who get themselves in the mood for the spooky side of fall by watching movies like The Rocky Horror Picture Show and It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. For those of us with hearts that are truly as black as the deepest pits of hell, there is only one film that will do: Hocus Pocus.
I’ve seen a lot of EPCOT concept art in my day. But a new video released by Disney has some behind-the-scenes shots that I’ve never seen before, including scale models of everything from the Horizons attraction (RIP) to the countries of the World Showcase. It’s all pretty cool.
Moana made global history by being Disney’s first feature-length film to center on a Polynesian princess, drawing inspiration from the legends of multiple South Pacific Ocean cultures. In New Zealand, though, the movie’s connecting with local audiences of Maori descent in a unique and important way.
Kids everywhere have imagined what Anna, Elsa, and the rest of the Frozen crew would look like if they were real. And soon, thanks to a new Broadway production, they can find out.
The hunt is on for a director for the next Bond movie. Locke and Key casts another important member of the Locke family. A familiar face from the Transformers films is returning for the Bumblebee spinoff. Plus, Barry Allen returns in new Flash footage and another Punisher teaser. Spoilers now!
Xavier “X” Atencio had a remarkable career with the Walt Disney company, from his early days in the 1930s working on films like Pinocchio to his later days working on rides like Disneyland’s The Haunted Mansion and Pirates of the Caribbean. But Atencio reached the end of the ride this weekend. He died on Sunday at the…
Early season’s greetings from your favorite (annoying) snowman who likes warm hugs! Frozen stars Josh Gad and Idina Menzel have shared some musical clips from the upcoming animated short, Olaf’s Frozen Adventure.
When Disney recently announced plans to terminate its streaming arrangements with Netflix and begin its own service in 2019, the specific distribution rights for the Star Wars and Marvel movies were still being considered. Now we know their fate.
Bill Nye the Science Guy, whose eponymous show wrapped up two decades ago in 1997 but been airing in syndication ever since, has some unfinished business with Disney.
Talk about job perks. Disneyland is in the middle of building Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, and to celebrate the construction of the area’s tallest peak, all Disney cast members got a chance to autograph the steel beams. Meaning they get to tell their grandkids they’re forever cemented in Star Wars canon, and I’m just…
News of perhaps the largest defamation settlement in U.S. history came and went with a whimper last week. In two footnotes in its third-quarter earnings report, The Walt Disney Company whispered that it spent a cool $177 million—not including additional cash from insurers—“in connection with the settlement of…
The new Spider-Man series on Disney XD, coming after the end of Ultimate Spider-Man, decided to strip Peter Parker back to his most basic form: a young, nerdy high school teen who’s only just been awakened to his great powers. Except, apparently, the show’s also bringing along another three Spider-heroes just because.
Yesterday, EW broke the news that Benicio Del Toro’s Last Jedi character is a “slicer” that Finn (John Boyega) and Rose (Kelly Marie Tran) are tracking down. Despite the fact that you may never have heard the word slicer in a Star Wars movie, they have a long and important history in that universe.
