Chile-based digital artist Fernanda Suarez spent months creating modern day portraits of the most popular Disney princesses, starting with Snow White back in July. "They probably post selfies with their 'princes' on Instagram and all agree that NAKED2 is the best eyeshadow palette. Oh yeah, they probably also campaign non-stop on social media for the equal rights of dwarfs, marine wildlife, and big cat conservation," said Bored Panda. Continue reading for more.

These images may look like scenes from an upcoming science fiction movie, or even an Apple Store, but they're actually of a minimalist seaside home in Japan. The stark white residence has rooms arranged in linear to offer unobstructed views of the terrace, pool, and ocean. Its twisting staircase is illuminated from above by diffused light, while the street-facing side keeps things simple as just a white wall. Continue reading for more pictures.

The Longest Film

Swedish director Anders Weberg will soon release Ambiencé, a unique film that runs for 720 hours straight, or 30 days of continuous screening time. It will be screened simultaneously on all continents, for one time only, after which the director plans to destroy all copies. "My process is that I collect glimpses of light with the camera and take that with me into the computer where the real work begins, taking all these glimpses and arranging and rearranging them into a flow that I feel represents the emotion I try to express. There is a lot of post production behind it where I run all the captured material through numerous processes. I use After Effects for that part, so this will be for sure an ephemeral experience and the only thing that will remain is the memories of the little bits and parts the viewer got to see," said the director. Continue reading to see the 7-hour, 20-minute trailer sped up into just 60-seconds, and for more information.

After months of speculation, Disney revealed the official name at the D23 Expo in Anaheim for their new lands at Disneyland and Disney World: "Star Wars: Galaxies Edge". "Both Star Wars-inspired lands will transport guests to a never-before-seen planet, a remote trading port, and one of the last stops before Wild Space, where Star Wars characters and their stories come to life. Here, guests will find themselves in the middle of the action at two signature attractions: one that lets guests take the controls of Millennium Falcon on a customized secret mission, and an epic Star Wars adventure that puts guests in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance," said a Disney representative.
