Stop by CHUCK JONES GALLERY during COMIC-CON! – Course of the Force 2013
If you’re making it down to San Diego Comic-Con this year, then Matt Mira wants you to make a trip to the Course of the Force space at the Chuck Jones Gallery to check out some great art and some equally cool technology from Samsung.

At the end of their movies, these Disney villains find themselves out of a job. Their evil plans have been thwarted, their life’s work (however villainous) has been snuffed out. So what do they do after their adversaries (otherwise known as some of our favorite characters) get to live happily ever after? We think they might have to look for new places to use their very special sets of skills. And to get a new job, you need a great resume.
Oh My Disney has the full gallery.
When asked by BuzzFeed if there would be a sequel, director Anthony C. Ferrante had this to say:
“Uh, no one’s called me yet, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it would be on its way soon,” he said with a laugh. “I mean, what do you do after Sharknado? You’ve got to up the ante.”
