From bad… to worse! Sales numbers are in for Week 3 of the Camp Rock 2 soundtrack and they aren’t good. Last week the album sold approximately 18,000 copies, putting total sales at around 81,000. Adding insult to injury, Kidz Bop 18 outsold the highly anticipated Disney soundtrack by 6,000 copies. (source: HITS Digital Ventures)

James Cameron’s mega hit Avatar will be re-released on November 16th as a collector’s edition containing an extended version of the film with 16 extra minutes as well as another version of the film which features 45 extra minutes, even though that will be unfinished pre-vis footage. Those who have the bare-bones version released in April will be able to print coupons for this new release if you’ve signed up with the free Avatar Program advertised in the release.
How to Train Your Dragon? Seems like that’s a lesson Mickey Mouse is currently taking notes on. On Sunday night, Murphy the Dragon (who stars in Fantasmic at Disneyland) took a massive spill, which resulted in several key components being bent and/or broken. At this time, it’s estimated that Murphy won’t be operational until after the new year. Over the four years Disney has had trouble with multimillion dollar animatronics. Three years ago, the movements of the 20,000 pound Yeti in Expedition Everest were turned off due to the fact that the its movements (which have more thrust than a 747 jet) were cracking the foundation of the ride.
