By now you've probably figured out that Disney hosted its own mini convention in California over the weekend, and they used the time to make a whole bunch of announcements regarding their upcoming movies, as well as to screen some nifty footage for fans and critics alike. Since there was such an abundance of new information, we've gone and collected the specific sci-fi news for you to review at your leisure.
-- Pirates of the Caribbean 4 landed a subtitle, and will now be called Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. Johnny Depp will reprise the role of Captain Jack Sparrow, and the plot may or may not have something to do with the book called On Stranger Tides by Tim Powers. [Cinematical]
-- Disney will be launching a new horror label alongside Guillermo del Toro, and they're calling it Disney's Double Dare You. The first film out of the gate under the new label is based on an original idea and called Trollhunters. del Toro will produce all the films under this label, and may even direct some too.

-- Nicolas Cage, there to help promote the upcoming live-action version of The Sorcerer's Apprentice, somehow found a way to compare the experience of making the film to 9/11 ... but in a good way (we think). [Cinematical]
-- Tron: Legacy producer Sean Bailey chatted up all things Tron with Cinematical. Here's a quote: "Well, we had a lot of stuff we wanted to say in this movie. We wanted to explore this father/son story of Kevin and his son Sam. We had this new important character named Cora played by Olivia Wild. We had to tell her story. If we could have made a four hour movie, we probably would have." [Cinematical]
