'Toy Story Land' to open at Disney's Hollywood Studios June 30
Toy Story Land is set to open at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Orlando on June 30, Walt Disney World announced Friday.

The new section of the theme park is inspired by three animated Toy Story blockbusters that follow the beloved action figures and playthings who come to life when their owners -- first Andy, then after he grows up, Bonnie -- leave the room. Toy Story 4 is due in theaters next year.

"Here, guests can take a ride on Slinky Dog Dash, a roller coaster Andy has assembled from his Mega Coaster Play Kit and topped off with Slinky and Jessie," the Disney Parks website said about its new addition.

"Families will also be able to take a spin on Alien Swirling Saucers, a galactic play set that Andy won from Pizza Planet. Here, adorable little green aliens swirl about in their flying saucers with guests in tow in their rocket ship toys, while The Claw hangs overhead. Guests can also walk through a new carnival game box to experience Toy Story Mania!, which has been a guest-favorite attraction at the park since it opened in 2008. Now expanded with a third track, the popular attraction will put even more guests in the action taking aim at 3D objects -- using everything from baseballs to cream pies -- in a variety of whimsical, fast-paced games."

Disney World's other recent attractions include two new Pandora: The World of Avatar-themed rides and a restaurant at Animal Kingdom and a Frozen-themed log flume at Epcot.

Joel McHale: New Netflix show will 'make fun of everything'
Joel McHale says his new weekly, topical program for Netflix is "definitely a clip show, but it's going to be a lot more than that."

The Joel McHale Show with Joel McHale is to begin streaming at midnight Sunday.

"We're going to take television and the Internet from around the world and we're going to make fun of Netflix -- our employers -- and we are going to make fun of everything and ... use those clips and make sketches out of them," the 46-year-old comedian told UPI in a recent phone interview, adding he enjoys "the anarchy of not having to have commercial breaks or a set amount of time."

"We even asked them how long should the show should be and they said, 'How long do you want it to be?' They literally said, '25 minutes to 35 minutes?' And we said, 'Sounds good to us.'"

Asked what he thinks about how the U.S. comedy landscape has changed over the years and what it is like to tell jokes when people seem easily outraged these days, McHale emphasized he has always understood and appreciated how much freedom American comedians have to express themselves.

"Yes, there may be repercussions, but you do get to try so many different things and that is what has made America so wonderful. Obviously, it's way better than growing up in North Korea where you could be shot for telling a joke. Yes, there is always risk in comedy and I think that is one of the reasons why comedy exists," he said. "If everything was safe, it's not comedy anymore. I know there are really safe comedies out there that people love and if they are really funny, they are really funny and that's it. But if people are just trying to be risky and just trying to be shocking and it's not funny, then it's not [comedy] and I am not interested."

"TONIGHT/(early morning) @thejoelmchaleshow premieres on @netflix. After you see @blackpanther watch me from the comfort of your any device. #thejoelmchaleshowwithjoelmchale," McHale posted as a reminder on Instagram Saturday.

McHale is best known for hosting the pop-culture analysis show The Soup for more than a decade. He also co-starred in the sitcoms Community and The Great Indoors, as well as in the movie A Futile and Stupid Gesture.

"One or the other says, 'Say something nice.' And the other one has to say something nice ... and the other [person] has to go right after."
