My family loves Snoopy and the Peanuts Gang. It just does not feel like the holidays until we watch their holiday movies. I was raised on Peanuts and am now raising my daughters on them as well. They are big fans of Snoopy, Lucy, and Charlie Brown! If you have someone like this in your life, allow me to tell you about 5 great Peanuts gifts! Plus, enter for a chance to win them all!
Marvel fans have been waiting patiently for the Avengers: Infinity War trailer to drop and the day has FINALLY come! Hold on to your hats, because it will blow you away! Personally, I have been counting the seconds until this moment would happen. Jumping every time I saw #InfinityWar trending, wondering if I missed it. Well, it is FINALLY here!
Pixar’s latest film, Coco, has hit theaters this week and I cannot wait to take my daughters to see it. From what I hear, and have seen from the trailers, it is all about family and music. And those are two things that are very important in our home. We have tried to teach our girls how family is all that should matter from the moment they were born. I am really looking forward to seeing this film, and to help celebrate, here are some fun printable recipes, activities, and more!
I am sure that many of you are counting down the days to Star Wars: The Last Jedi – I know I am! It has seemed like we have been waiting for this movie forever, and now it is finally almost here! To help celebrate, Disney has joined forces with Dole once again. Together they have come up with a delicious menu to help Unite for a Healthy Galaxy. As part of this collaboration, they are also hosting a great sweepstakes where you can win a remote controlled BB-8 and more!
Incredibles came out in 2004 and immediately skyrocketed to the top of my most favorite Disney movies ever list. I sort of have a thing for superheroes, in case you never noticed that. I loved everything about it – the family, the superpowers, the villains, the backstory… It was incredibly (no pun intended) well done. With the way it ended I knew that it left the door open for a second one, and I was dying to see that happen. When it was announced, I was thrilled – and now that time is almost here! Next year (June 15, 2018), Incredibles 2 will be hitting theaters, and the teaser trailer that was just released gave me goosebumps.
Pixar’s Coco hits theaters November 22nd – and I cannot wait! I have only heard good, no great, things about this film. It is all about family, which to me, is the most important thing in this world. To help celebrate it’s release, The Hopping Bloggers have come together to bring our readers a fantastic giveaway worth $150!
I am sure I have said this time and time again, but one of our favorite things to do as a family is cuddle up and watch a movie. We have family movie night once a week, and I truly think it is something we all look forward to. When we first saw trailers for Nut Job 2: Nutty By Nature, we knew it was a movie we would all love to see. No matter how many times we saw it, we were still laughing! Unfortunately, we didn’t get to theaters to see it, but that’s OK because Universal sent us an advance copy to check out!
DC’s latest film, Justice League, is hitting theaters on November 17, 2917. This movie is all about the team up of some of DC’s most popular superheroes. I am really looking forward to seeing this movie. In order to help celebrate, The Hopping Bloggers are teaming up, much like the Justice League, to give one lucky winner a $50 Justice League prize pack!
We are a huge Disney family, so of course we saw Cars 3 in theaters. It immediately became of my favorite Disney movies. The lesson that it teaches is incredible – and an important one for kids. Cars 3 is sure to touch your heart. You will laugh, and in true Disney fashion, you might even cry. I know I did. The blu-ray just hit stores today, but I was lucky enough to get an advance copy. I think that every single bonus feature is a must watch!
You might not recognize Rachel House from many films – unless you watched Hunt for the Wilderpeople like I suggested. But I guarantee you would remember her voice. She voiced Gramma Tala in Moana, and now she is in Thor: Ragnarok. Her character, Topaz, is one of the best characters in the film if you ask me. She is hilarious! I honestly don’t know how she kept a straight face while filming – but we did ask her about it in this exclusive interview!
Thor: Ragnarok hits theaters today and what better way to celebrate than to start shopping for Thor collectibles! To go along with this movie release, there are some pretty amazing products, and I want to tell you all about them. They are perfect for Marvel fans of all ages. Trust me, I want all of them!
As you likely know already, I have done a fair amount of celebrity interviews in the last few years. My recent one with Karl Urban sticks out in my mind, however, because he is the nicest guy in the world. Seriously. To paint you a picture – the interview room was set up with three rows of chairs, filled with 25 bloggers. When he walked into the room, he proceeded to walk up and down each row, shaking all of our hands – and looking us in the eyes as he said hi. I was blown away! I was already really looking forward to this interview, but that is the exact moment I knew it was going to be great.
I have always thought it would be really cool to attend to press junket with the cast of a film. A couple of weeks ago in LA, I was able to attend my first one – and for Thor: Ragnarok of all movies! On stage was HUGE talent – Taika Waititi, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, Jeff Goldblum, Rachel House, and Kevin Feige. It was pretty surreal to be in the same room as them, and to be able to chat with them about their new film. This is a long one guys, and I even cut out a lot. Hope you enjoy it!
