Find Out The Secrets Of "Halloweentown" This Spooky Season

The Halloweentown films are a four-part series, with the first movie released in 1998. Since the premiere of the movie, it has gained more and more popularity not only with kids today but with teens and adults who watched the movies as children. Whatever category you fall under, these secrets of Halloweentown will have you watching the movie from a whole new perspective.

Recognize the pink troll in Halloweentown High? If you do, it's probably because you've seen her in the other famous Disney sequel, High School Musical. Oleysa Rulin, who plays the pink troll in Halloweentown High, is also famous for her role as Kelsi in the High School Musical series.

Rulin isn't the only notable character in the Halloweentown series. Lucas Grabeel, who also stars in the Highschool Musical series as Ryan Evans, appears as Ethan the Warlock in the spooky movies.

The movie was filmed in St. Helens, Oregon, where fans can actually go and visit the site. According to the director, the city was basically abandoned once they began shooting. The town now has annual Halloween festivities and celebrations throughout the month of October.

Though four Halloweentown movies were made, there were only two characters that remained throughout all of them. Judith Hoag, or Marnie's mom, and Joey Zimmerman, who played Marnie's brother, are in all of the movies. Some of the other characters do appear in every movie, however, they are played by different actors.

Benny the Cab Driver is one of the most loved and remembered characters from the movie. Known for his terrible driving and awful jokes, the producers of the movie actually spent a lot of money on making the character. Depending on the scene, one person would control his mouth, while another controlled his arms.

Kalabar is the antagonist of all of the movies. He character was not only romantically involved with Marnie's mother but was also an evil man who wants to take over all of Halloweentown. The scene where Kalabar is on the roof of the town's square actually caused the actor to lose his voice for several days due to how much yelling he had to do.

The original Halloweentown movie was actually filmed during the summer, making the heavy costumes excruciating to wear in the heat.

Despite how many former Disney Channel actors bash their time spent with the company, Kimberly J. Brown or Marnie, loves to talk about what a great time she had filming. She even reveals that to this day she still has props from the movie such as decor from Marnie's bedroom and the pocket-sized broom used in the second movie.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
