Next year, Disney and Pixar are going to blend the latter’s recognizable franchises with the sport of golf, and it’s going to happen Down Under. You read right; a Disney-Pixar mini-golf course will be opened for a month in Melbourne, inviting families for a putting good time on the green.
The so-called “Pixar Putt” will have guests take on a whimsical golfing experience with a course and holes inspired by various Disney-Pixar properties and characters. The fun is for all ages and the challenges can be adjusted accordingly. Here’s a list of what to expect from Pixar Putt in Melbourne:
Pixar Putt will run one month, from January 4 to February 3, 2019.
The Pixar Putt course will be set up at River Terrace, Federation Square, close to Princes Walk and the Yarra River.
There are two course options available: a shorter 30-40-minute 9-hole course or the full 18 holes taking from 1 to 1.5 hours; each run is for groups of 4.
Pixar Putt will provide all the golfing equipment needed; just bring yourself in suitable golfing gear.
Tickets can be booked at Pixar Putt’s ticket booth from 10 AM to 5 PM, or online at pixarputt.com.au
Tickets are needed for guests of at least 3 years old; child ticket rates are for until age 14, with the rest being priced as adult tickets.
Family ticket packages for Pixar Putt are in groups of 4, either 2 adults-2 children or 1 adult-3 children.
Aside from the golf course itself, Pixar Putt will also be offering Disney-Pixar merchandise on site with some exclusive items not to be found anywhere else.
Since Pixar Putt is outdoors, they will extend validity of paid tickets in case the session is rained out, up to the following seven days.

About Disney’s The Nutcracker and the Four Realms
All Clara (Mackenzie Foy) wants is a key – a one-of-a-kind key that will unlock a box that holds a priceless gift. A golden thread, presented to her at godfather Drosselmeyer’s (Morgan Freeman) annual holiday party, leads her to the coveted key—which promptly disappears into a strange and mysterious parallel world. It’s there that Clara encounters a soldier named Phillip (Jayden Fowora-Knight), a gang of mice and the regents who preside over three Realms: Land of Snowflakes, Land of Flowers and Land of Sweets. Clara and Phillip must brave the ominous Fourth Realm, home to the tyrant Mother Ginger (Helen Mirren), to retrieve Clara’s key and hopefully return harmony to the unstable world. Starring Keira Knightley as the Sugar Plum Fairy, Disney’s new holiday feature film “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” is directed by Lasse Hallström and Joe Johnston, and inspired by E.T.A. Hoffmann’s classic tale (Walt Disney Studios).

Marvel Animation is gearing up to release the animated feature-length film Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors sometime this year. It’s part of the larger Marvel Rising franchise initiative looking to introduce a new spin on an animated Marvel Universe, but focused on the younger generation of superheroes on the original comics.
While no exact dates have been given yet for when Marvel Rising will kick off, we’ll instead leave you with this list of the various Marvel heroes that’ll be part of this film’s version of the Secret Warriors super-team. We’ll also include their respective voice talent plus relevant extra info.
Dove Cameron as Gwen Stacy, aka Spider-Gwen/Ghost Spider – based on an alternate-universe version of Peter Parker/Spider-Man’s late girlfriend, who got the spider-powers rather than her world’s version of Peter; this Gwen apparently still lives in this particular Marvel animated universe
Chloe Bennet as Daisy Johnson, aka Quake – Bennet already portrays Daisy/Quake, also named Skye, on the ABC live-action series Agents of SHIELD; but while there she’s already a young adult, here she’s much younger
Tyler Posey as Dante Pertuz, aka Inferno – one of the first Inhuman descendants in the regular world to awaken his powers outside the Inhuman homeland of Attilan
Kathreen Khavari as Kamala Khan, aka Ms. Marvel – one of the most famous recent-generation Marvel characters in comics, a Pakistani-American high-schooler with Inhuman powers hailed as a positive representation of a devout Muslim in America
Milana Vayntrub as Doreen Green, aka Squirrel Girl – another famous “young” Marvel hero, whose squirrel-like characteristics (teeth, tail) and ability to communicate with them is strong enough to fight (and beat!) high-profile super-villains like Doctor Doom
Cierra Ramirez as “Ms.” America Chavez – the first Latina-American and LGBTQ character to headline an ongoing Marvel Comics title series than ran 2017-2018; comes from an alternate dimension with the power to travel across dimensions
Kamil McFadden as Rayshaun Lucas, aka Patriot – the third Marvel hero to carry the name (the original during World War II and the previous – second – one being introduced only in 2005)
This time is mentored and led by veteran heroine and government agent Carol Danvers (Kim Raver), aka Captain Marvel (and formerly the original Ms. Marvel).
It was a notable experiment, when it was decided that the setting established by Marvel Studio’s Cinematic Universe (MCU) since 2008 be expanded to television. Marvel Television was formed in 2010 to explore these possibilities, leading to Agents of SHIELD on ABC, with myth connections established to MCU film events.
From there, several other MCU-based TV shows were developed, shown not only on the ABC network but other channels and platforms too. Now we are going to list all these shows depicting the adventures and struggles of other heroes out of frame from The Avengers and their high-profile movie “associates”.
Agents of SHIELD (2013-present) –S5 ongoing
