Hypable talked with Karen Hallion about her successful Doctor Who and Disney Heroines collection, and also got an exclusive sneak peek at her latest sketch featuring the Doctor and another famous Disney princess!

Hallion boasts a large and dedicated fanbase, particularly on Facebook, and a whole array of incredible designs that feature fan favorite characters from popular shows and films like Firefly, Once Upon a Time, Harry Potter, and many, many others.

One of her most popular series is the Doctor Who and Disney Heroines collection, which shows the Doctor in his TARDIS meeting some popular Disney characters. We can just hear him now, “All of time and space; everywhere and anywhere; every star that ever was. Where do you want to start?” Who could say no to that?

Check out the gallery of images included in this series below. The designs that are officially recognized as part of this collection include Cinderella, Ariel, Rapunzel, Belle, Alice, Mulan, Merida (work in progress, shown here), and Snow White. Jack Skellington was a related sketch, as was the one of Little Red Riding Hood, though neither are actually a part of the Disney collection. The Red Riding Hood sketch was a collaboration with Matthew Parsons.

1. Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?

I am originally from a small town in Massachusetts just north of Boston called Nahant. I went to Ringling School of Art and Design, and graduated with a BFA in Illustration. Up until a few years ago, I was an elementary school Art teacher and now am working full-time as an artist. I originally wanted to work for Disney as an animator, so my work tends to reflect that. I am influenced by the amazing work of Glen Keane, Audrey Kawasaki, and Alphonse Mucha. I also speak fluent Star Wars, Firefly, Buffy, Harry Potter and Steampunk. I currently live in Swampscott, MA with my husband, my sons, and our cats, Obi and Kenobi.

2. ‘Doctor Who’ and Disney, who knew they’d go so well together? How did you first come up with this concept?

Well, I started watching Doctor Who because a fellow artist thought I would enjoy it. What struck me was that his companions are not necessarily just love interests but also cohorts in his adventures. I started imagining who else might make good companions for him and thought of Cinderella; what an interesting twist to her story it would be if he appeared right at that moment.

The Disney princesses yearn for excitement and adventure, so I try to place the Doctor at the point in their story where it seems they are ready for things to change, and it just seems to work together so perfectly.

3. When you first did your Cinderella design, did you think it would be so popular? Did you ever expect you’d be doing a whole series of ‘Doctor Who’/Disney mash-ups?

No; in fact when I came up with the idea for Cinderella and wrote it down on my white board (where I keep all of my ideas), it sat there for over a month before I decided to work on it. Once I drew Cinderella, though, I knew I wanted to do Ariel and Belle, but did not plan to continue going with it after that. When I saw how much people loved them, I decided to keep going.

4. Which one was the most challenging to draw?

Rapunzel because I knew I wanted the Doctor hovering and that I wanted the tower in there. I don’t draw buildings very often so I got a little tripped up on that piece.

Fox has moved the third and final Maze Runner movie to 2018.

The cast and crew were only a few days into filming The Death Cure in March when Dylan O’Brien suffered serious injuries on set, prompting the production to be put on a break so he could recover. When his recovery ended up taking longer than expected, the production was put on an indefinite hold.

Now, a plan to resume the shoot seems to be in place. Fox announced Friday The Death Cure will be hitting theaters January 12, 2018, which is nearly a year later than the original February 2017 date. The last Maze Runner movie, The Scorch Trials, opened last September.

Production on The Maze Runner: The Death Cure likely won’t resume until late this year or early next. Dylan O’Brien has already committed to another movie which is expected to shoot this summer.

Getting the rest of the cast and crew back together to shoot The Maze Runner finale may be a bit of a challenge since they may’ve committed to other projects that were supposed to be shooting after they finished The Maze Runner. However, the new Death Cure release date suggests Fox has found a time that’ll work for everyone.

Tom Cavanagh will return to The Flash in season 3 as a series regular, though which character he’ll be playing remains to be seen.

Cavanagh has had a unique acting challenge on The Flash, playing a different version of his character in each of the first two seasons — and now it looks like he’ll be doing it for a third season in a row, as EW confirms that he will be a series regular in season 3.

In season 1, Cavanagh played Eobard Thawne, aka the Reverse Flash, in Harrison Wells’ body. Thawne, after traveling back in time, killed the original Wells and took his form to expedite the development of the particle accelerator so he could return to his own time. Thawne was written out of existence in the season 1 finale, though, leaving fans curious about who Cavanagh would be playing in season 2.

This past season, Cavanagh played the Earth-2 version of Harrison Wells, nicknamed Harry, who was a significantly different character from the man we thought was Wells in season 1. However, in the season 2 finale, Harry and his daughter, Jesse, returned to Earth-2.

The Flash season 2, episode 6 recap Wells

So, who does that leave for Cavanagh to play in the third season?

My guess would be the Earth-1 version of Harrison Wells, who we only briefly met in a flashback in season 1. Why the original Wells? Because in the final moments of the season 2 finale, Barry traveled back in time and stopped Thawne from killing his mother. This means the timeline in which Thawne killed Wells and took his form no longer exists, so Earth-1 Wells would be the version left alive.

Assuming he does play the original version of the character, the one who was killed and had his identity stolen, it will be interesting to see Cavanagh inhabit yet another version of the character. While we already met Wells briefly in the flashback to his death, that was a small sample size. I look forward to seeing him differentiate another Wells from those he’s already played for entire seasons.

‘Glee’ alum Mark Salling indicted on child pornography charges

The actor is facing a lot of jail time.

4:55 pm EDT, May 27, 2016

Following an arrest in December, Glee star Mark Salling (who played Puck on the Fox series) is now facing child pornography charges.

A federal grand jury has charged the 33-year-old actor with two counts of child pornography after a search of his home turned up “thousands” of images and videos involving children, TMZ reports. He will be arraigned in early June.

Salling’s charges potentially come with big sentences: 5 to 20 years in prison for receiving child porn, and another 20 years for possessing it.

After Glee went off air last year, Salling has worked on only one project: The action movie Adi Shankar’s Gods and Secrets which is slated to hit theaters later this year.

The actor has been in trouble with the law before — he was sued for sexual battery in 2013.
