About Castle, Capes & CLones
Castles, Capes and Clones is an online content provider aimed at discussing the Walt Disney Company, its subsidiaries, assets and intellectual properties. It is a site created by Disney fans for Disney fans such as yourselves. It started as a blog by Loren Javier as a way of expressing his love of all things Disney. In 2013, he rebranded his blog as Castles, Capes & Clones as an effort to educate the Disney community about Marvel and Star Wars. In 2019, Rich Romasanta joined Loren on this venture to expand the brand, starting with a podcast.
Our aim is to cover all aspects of the Walt Disney Company, from Walt Disney Animation Studios to Pixar, from Disney Live Action to 21st Century Fox, from Marvel to Lucasfilm, and from The Muppets to ABC. Nothing is left uncovered.
Our blog provides up to date commentary, reviews and news, while our podcast, hosted by Loren and Rich, provides more focused topical discussions. We also have a YouTube Channel in which we provide dynamic content about Disney.
The presence on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook are used to promote the blog and podcast as well as spark continued conversation on topics.
The views on Castles, Capes and Clones are solely the opinions of the writers and podcast hosts and do not represent the Walt Disney Company, its subsidiaries or assets.
