  3. Disney if they have the original Sherman Bros. songs. I want too hear Scarlet Johanson sing “Trust In Me”. If the songs aren’t in it, then probably neither.

    The thought of Christopher Walken and Bill Murray fighting over an indian boy while a castle falls down around them gives me a three-quarter.

    Chobot, awesome job as usual, and I love today’s Dalek dress. I only wish the segments were longer. More news and more Chobot.

    I am looking forward to both movies.
