After it became known that the Navy SEALs group responsible for killing Osama bin Laden was called SEAL Team 6, it was inevitable that SOMEONE would try to turn that information into profit.
Looks like Disney beat everyone else to the punch, because "three trademark applications" have been discovered, which were made by the Walt Disney Company in early May in an effort to secure the rights to "SEAL Team 6."
The trademark covers "'entertainment and education services,' 'toys, games and playthings' and 'clothing, footwear and headwear.'"
Who ever thought that the same company responsible for Winnie the Pooh would take on Osama Bin Laden's death?!?!? Crazy…
Do U think it's okay for Disney to profit from this? Or do U take issue with it?

Oh, man! We have a feeling that she's going to be giving Jack Johnson's Curious George album a run for its money!
Zooey Deschanel will apparently be contributing a few original songs for the upcoming reboot of Winnie The Pooh, and spoke out a bit about what drew her to the classic Disney animation!
Check out her comments, as well as a preview of the new song So Long (above)!
Goodness, her voice is just so lovely and soothing! We have a feeling it's going to be a perfect fit for the tone of this movie!
We're so excited!
What do U think??

Oh man. This is so effing cute!
Watching this feels like being hugged by your childhood all over again!
Check out this clip from the upcoming Winnie the Pooh, a reboot of the 1977 Disney classic (above) and set for a July 2011 release!
We LOVE that they stuck to the source material in the books, and also decided to traditionally animate this one! This generation of kids needs that!
What do U think?? Will U go see Winnie the Pooh?

Yeah, we're excited for Scream 4…but we'd like to see SOME original movies come out as well!
2011 will make Box Office history for releasing 27 movies sequels, making '11 the year with the most sequels in history!
Not only THAT, but 2011 will also set a record for being the year with the most "part fours" in history, including Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Scream 4, Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World, and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn (Part One).
NOT ONLY THAT, but 2011 will ALSO set a record for being the year with the most "part fives" in history, including Fast Five, Final Destination 5, Puss in Boots, X-Men: First Class, and Winnie the Pooh.
Wow. We didn't realize Pooh had made his way into theaters so many times!
This is pretty disturbing. Let's come up with some original ideas, Hollywood! Honestly, do we really need a FIFTH Final Destination? We would have stopped after the Devon Sawa one, but that's just us.
How do U feel about the fact that we're breaking sequel history this year?

And much like they did with The Princess & The Frog, they return to the old-school way of animating movies:
Next summer, for the first time in over 30 years, a brand-new, hand-drawn Winnie the Pooh based film will release in theaters. Producer's are finally talking a bit about the project, claiming that the film has "the charm and wit of those original shorts" from the 60s and 70s.
In an attempt rekindle the franchise "in a big way,"the producers went back to the A.A. Milne books to pick out a story to tell of the Hundred Acre Wood. Describing the animation as "watercolor-drenched," the new movie will find Pooh and friends in a mad search for a new tail for Eeyore as well as hunting a mysterious creature called a Backson. "
Before you blow this off as just another money-making scheme from the Mouse, you should know that none other than Disney and Pixar's animation chief John Lasseter is helming the project and that five new original songs have been composed for the movie. Plus, producers are promising a "faster pace punctuated with humor that's appropriate for modern audiences."
There seems to be a lot of potential here and if we know Disney fans, we know they'll come out in droves regardless if it doesn't live up to all their expectations.
It's called loyalty.
Anyway, above is the first still from the movie. Still looks a bit more compuer heavy than we would like.
What do U think?
