Davy Jones

 Davy Jones

Davy Jones is the captain of the Flying Dutchman in two of the four 'Pirates of the Caribbean' movies. He can be found in the films 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest' and 'Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End.' He can also be found in the video games Lego Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game, and Disney INFINITY. In other merchandise he can be found in clothing, pins, toys, books, Disney art, and vinylmations.

He makes his home in Davy Jones Locker. He can count on his crew and the rest of the evil Disney villains when he is in trouble. His enemies include Barbossa, Will Turner, Calypso, Captain Jack Sparrow, Bootstrap Bill, Elizabeth Swan, and the rest of the good Disney characters.

Davy Jones

Davy Jones, who was once human, was cursed along with his crew by his former love, Calypso. He has a crab leg, craw claw, and a octopus finger. He also has tentacles for a beard, and wears traditional pirate clothing, and a hat that has coral growing on them. He is extremely cruel, calculating, and he has a very short temper.

He has been voiced by a few people over the years such as Robin Atkin Downes and Bill Nighy. He was played by Bill Nighy in 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest' and 'Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End.'

 Davy Jones

Davy Jones can be seen in Disney parks around the world. He could be seen in The Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow, Pirates of the Caribbean, and World of Color. This is one of the most interesting characters in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. It would be great to see him used more in the parks, and also having more merchandise with him on it.

Jack Sparrow
Captain Jack Sparrow, Captain of the Black Pearl, has become an Icon: the girls love him and the guys want to be him. He has been in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, and he will soon be on the big screen again for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides which comes to theaters on May 20th, 2011. He can also be found in the video game Kingdom Hearts 2, and has his own book series called Pirates of the Caribbean: Jack Sparrow. These consist of 12 books total aimed at young readers, but I have read these and really enjoyed them.
Sparrow was born at sea, but makes port quite frequently in Tortuga, and has been marooned on a certain deserted island on a few occasions. Jack Sparrow's father is Captain Teague; he also has his right hand man Mr. Gibbs, Will Turner and Elizabeth Swan/Turner.
Captain Jack Sparrow has a very common pirate outfit, he has long hair with dreadlocks that have beads in them, a braided goatee with beads, a red bandana, a leather pirate hat, a white long sleeve ruffled shirt, navy blue vest, a red and white sash loop, a brown belt, a over the shoulder belt, brown pants, brown boots, a compass that points to the thing you want the most, a sword, a pistol, and rings on his fingers. He also wears a coat at times in the films.
Jack Sparrow was played by Johnny Depp and he modeled his character after Keith Richards. Sparrow is voiced by James Arnold Taylor in Kingdom Hearts 2 because Johnny Depp was filming a pirate's movie when they needed to do a voice over in the game.
Captain Jack Sparrow can be found in Pirates of the Caribbean at Disney Parks around the world. He also does a show at Disney World daily outside of the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction. So make sure you stop by and visit Captain Jack. Savvy!

Rocket Raccoon

Rocket Raccoon

Rocket Raccoon is the tiny anger fueled raccoon from the 2014 Marvel hit film, 'Guardians of the Galaxy.' He can be found in television shows such as 'Ultimate Spider-Man,' 'Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H,' 'Avengers Assemble,' 'The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes,' and the upcoming show "Guardians of the Galaxy." He can also be found in the upcoming video game Disney INFINITY: 2.0. In other merchandise he can be seen in clothing, toys, pins, Marvel paintings, and books.

He travels the galaxy with his friends Gamora, Drax the Destroyer, Star-Lord, and Groot. He can also count on the Avengers, Spider-Man, Nova, and the rest of the good Marvel characters. His enemies include Ronan the Accuser, Thanos, Nebula, Michael Korvac, the Chitauri, and the rest of the evil Marvel characters.

Guardians of the galaxy legos

Rocket has grey, brown, white, and black fur. He has worn different colored flight suits over the years, most commonly blue and red but in the new film it was orange and black. He is extremely sarcastic, intelligent, and has a very short fuse. There are many things that make him great. His abilities include pilot, marksmen, strategist, martial artist, and he also has enhanced senses.

He has been voiced by a few different people over the years such has Seth Green, Greg Ellis, Nolan North, Billy West, and Bradley Cooper.

Guardians of the Galaxy

Rocket can be found in the Guardians of the Galaxy preview in Walt Disney World and Disneyland resort. Hopefully with the popularity of the film we can get a Guardians of the Galaxy presence in the Disney parks in the future. I know this is wishful thinking, but I would love to see a Marvel theme park in the future.

Groot

Groot

Groot is the extremely large Flora Colossus (tree-like creature) from the 2014 Marvel film 'Guardians of the Galaxy.' He can also be found in the TV shows 'Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H.,' 'The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes,' 'Marvel Disk Wars: The Avengers,' 'Ultimate Spider-Man,' 'Avengers Assemble,' and the upcoming Disney XD 'Guardians of the Galaxy' cartoon. In video games he can be found in Marvel: Avengers Alliance, Guardians of the Galaxy: The Universal Weapon, the Disney INFINITY games, Marvel Puzzle Quest, Lego Marvel Super Heroes, and Marvel Heroes. In other merchandise he can be found in toys, books, clothing, pins, and Disney/Marvel art.

He is from the planet of Talhunia or Planet X. He travels the galaxy with his friends Gamora, Drax the Destroyer, Star-Lord, and Rocket Raccoon. He can also count on other Marvel heroes such as the Avengers, Spider-Man, Nova, and the rest of the good Marvel characters. His enemies include Ronan the Accuser, Thanos, Galactus, Korvac, the Chitauri, and the rest of the evil Marvel characters.

Groot

Groot is extremely large, he can shape shift and uses his tree body to create weapons and shields. He is extremely quiet and usually only says 'I am Groot' in that order. He also has the ability to regrow his body if he gets his arm, legs or rest of his body blown up or cut off. He has a temper at times, but can also be very caring, and extremely loyal especially to Rocket Raccoon.

He was created by Jack Kirby, Dick Ayers, and Stan Lee. He was also voiced by a few people over the years such as Kevin Michael Richardson, Vin Diesel, Troy Baker, and Michael Clarke Duncan until he passed away in 2012.

Groot

Groot can not be found in Disney parks around the world. Same thing as the rest of the Marvel characters, hopefully Disney will continue to integrate the characters into the parks due to the popularity of all Marvel movies, and comic books.

Gamora

Gamora

Gamora is the most dangerous woman in the universe. She is a fierce warrior. She can be found in the 2014 Marvel film, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy.’ She will also be seen in the upcoming films ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ and ‘Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and 2.’ She can be found in the television shows, ‘Avengers Assemble,’ ‘Guardians of the Galaxy,’ ‘Ultimate Spider-Man,’ ‘Marvel Disk Wars: The Avengers,’ and ‘Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H.’ In video games she can be seen in the Marvel: Avengers Alliance games, and Disney INFINITY series which has been discontinued. Finally in other merchandise she can be found in books, toys, games, clothing, Disney art, Vinylmations, and pins.

She is the last surviving member of the Zehoberei alien race. She lived on the planet Zen-Whoberi until the planet was wiped out at the hands of Adam Warlock and the Universal Church of Truth. She was found and adopted by the Mad Titan Thanos, along with her adopted sister Nebula and adopted brother Thane. People she can count on when needed are Rocket Raccoon, Star-Lord, Nova, Drax the Destroyer, Groot, and Spider-Man. Her enemies include Nebula, Ronan the Accuser, Korvac, Thanos, and the Chitauri.

Gamora

Gamora has dark brown eyes, black/purple hair, and green skin. She also has worn a dark blue cape from time to time in the animated shows and comics. She is extremely stoic, caring, and proficient with her weapons. She can use any weapon extremely well. She has superhuman strength and agility, and can heal at a rapidly accelerated rate.

She is played by Zoe Saldana in the Guardians of the Galaxy films. In the television shows she is voiced by a few people such as Vanessa Marshall, Nika Futterman, and Laura Bailey. Her character was created by Jim Starlin, and her first appearance came in Strange Tales #180.

Gamora

Gamora could be found at the Awesome Mix Tape Dance Party at the Unleash the Villains event that took place at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in 2013. She will soon be found in the Guardians of the Galaxy-Mission:BREAK­OUT! which took the place of the Tower of Terror in Disney California Adventure which is set to open May 26. I am sure she will be a meet and greet character during the Summer of Heroes event which takes place this summer at Disney California Adventure. We will also probably see more merchandise with her after the rumored Marvel Land Expansion is built in Disney California Adventure as well.

Milo Thatch

Milo James Thatch is the lead character from the 2001 Walt Disney film 'Atlantis: The Lost Empire.' He can also be seen in the sequel 'Atlantis: Milo's Return.' He can also be seen in the television show 'House of Mouse.' He can be found in the video game Atlantis: The Lost Empire and other merchandise such as books, toys, computer games, and pins.

He grew up and lived in Washington D.C. until his first adventure took him to Atlantis and he never left. He ended up getting married to the princess of Atlantis Kidagakash Nedakh. He has many allies on his side such as his grandfather's best friend Preston B. Whitmore, Mole, Sweet, Audrey, Vinny, Cookie, Kashekim Nedakh, Obby, and Wilhelmina. His enemies include Rourke, Fenton Q. Harcourt, and Helga.

Milo is quite the nerd; he is extremely intelligent, friendly, and all around nice guy. He has a few different outfits in the film which include a cream colored long sleeve shirt, dress pants, dress shoes, a red bow tie and his glasses. He also wears his Atlantis tribal outfit, which is blue and has yellow accents on it. Finally he wore a cream colored sleeveless shirt, green pants, and brown boots.

He was animated by John Pomeroy, and he has been voiced by Michael J. Fox, and James Arnold Taylor. I know a lot of people don't like these movies, but I think they are extremely underrated. I love treasure hunting movies and they are really educational also.

Milo can't be seen in the theme parks anymore. After the first film he could have been found throughout the resorts as a meet and greet character.

In video games she can be found in Moana: Island Life, Disney Emoji Blitz, Kingdom Hearts Unchained X, Disney Crossy Road, and Moana: Rhythm Run.

Her friends she can count on in times of need are Maui, Heihei, Mini Maui, Tui, Pua, Te Fiti, Sina, Tala, the people of her village, and the ocean.

She can also be found across the see at Hong Kong Disneyland in 2018 in the upcoming show, Moana's Village Festival. With the popularity of 'Moana' I wouldn't be surprised to see more shows or even a attraction based on the film in the coming future. Finally if you haven't seen 'Moana' yet, go see it! Such a beautifully done film with a great story, and amazing artwork.

 

I want to make my weekly bios interactive for all of you, so each week I ask you all to email me at disneyfan19@aim.com to let me know which character you want to see and want to know more about.
