One of the shows that my girls LOVE is PJ Masks. This show is super fun and airs on Disney Junior. Since the moment it came out, it has been a hit in our home. It focuses around three kids that become superheroes at night. There are some other kids that become villains. This is one of the shows that I can sit and watch with my girls and get totally in to. It is funny, entertaining, and even teaches kids some pretty great lessons. PJ Masks: Time to Be A Hero is out on DVD now – and we highly recommend it.
When we found out that we were going to be at Walt Disney World during Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, we were thrilled! We went a few years ago and have been dying to go back. When we booked our first trip as DVC members for the end of August, we thought for sure we were going to miss the 2017 party. But luck was on our side and it turns out we will be able to attend MNSSHP! Right away, we started planning our costumes. It took some debating, but we finally settled on one of favorite Disney XD shows – Star Vs. The Forces of Evil!
The Smith family loves all things related to comic books. In case you have not already figured it out, all four of us are huge geeks! We live for that kind of thing. After a long day and the kids are finally in bed, one of our favorite things to do is binge watch a good show. Not too long ago, my husband and I discovered DC Legends of Tomorrow. We binge watched season one, and so we were thrilled to receive an advance copy of season 2! We started binging it right away – and were not at all disappointed!
I am really looking forward to Marvel’s Inhumans coming to ABC in September. The Inhumans comic book series is one of my favorites and has been for a long time. The characters are all amazing and the story lines always have me hooked. Black Bolt and Medusa are one of my absolute favorite comic book couples. Now, I know many people out there don’t know much about The Inhumans. I put together a list of my favorite trade paperbacks that are sure to get you hooked on them – and also ready for the ABC TV Series!
My girls are obsessed with Kate and Mim-Mim. We watch the show all the time. They also have several toys that they play with and re-enact their favorite episodes. So they were thrilled to hear about the latest DVD release – Kate and Mim-Mim: Super Kate. This DVD features four of our favorite stories from the popular kids series “Kate & Mim-Mim”. We received an advance copy and have already watched it over and over and over. It quickly found a home in our mini-van for longer car rides.
My husband and I grew up watching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It was always one of my favorite shows, and his too! So when we had kids, of course we introduced them too it. Both girls have seen the old cartoons (and love them) but one of our favorite things to do as a family is watch the new ones. We record them on the DVR and sit down and watch them all together – as a family. We all have a favorite turtle, but there is on character that always stands out to us – Usagi Yojimbo! Usagi is a Samurai bunny rabbit and he is amazingly awesome. We wish he was a regular, but the fact that he is in a three party story arc right now, is going to have to do!
In case you haven’t figured it out yet, we are a Disney family. We are Disney Vacation Club members and love all things Disney. I have two young daughters, ages 4 and 6, and one of their favorite shows is Minnie’s Happy Helpers. Daisy and Minnie Mouse are their favorite Disney characters so this was immediately a hit in our house. We love to watch their adventures together and to see what kind of trouble they might get in to. Seven of our favorite episodes are hitting DVD on July 25, and we were lucky enough to get an advance copy.
My girls and I love binge watching our favorite shows. Recently, NCircle Entertainment released a full season of two super fun kids shows – Kiwi and Mily Miss. We were lucky enough to get copies of both and they quickly became favorites in our house. My 4 year old just LOVES Kiwi and my 6 year old is a huge fan of Mily Miss. These shows are not only entertaining, they are educational. I love how much my girls have learned from watching these shows – and I highly recommend them.
If you haven’t watched Rick and Morty than you are really missing out. It is one of the best shows out right now. The fact that fans have been patiently waiting literal YEARS between seasons and are not giving up on the show should prove it. We are loyal for a reason, this show is amazing. I have never laughed so hard in my life as I have while watching this show.
One upcoming show that I cannot wait for is Inhumans! I have been reading these comics for years and years and years and cannot believe that I will be seeing some of my favorite characters like Black Bolt and Lockjaw on TV. Of course, I will also be watching the first two episodes in IMAX theaters – how could I not? The first trailer we saw had me excited – the second one was just released at SDCC and it has me BLOWN AWAY! September 29th cannot come soon enough!
The day is finally almost here! THIS FRIDAY, July 21st, Descendants 2 will air at 8pm on Disney Channel, ABC, Disney XD, Freeform and Lifetime and I cannot wait! My girls and I have been looking forward to this film for quite some time. If you have been visiting my site over the last week, than you know I was lucky enough to chat with some of the cast and crew last time I was in LA. I also got to see some of the footage from Descendants 2, so I am eagerly awaiting to see how the whole movie plays out.
Booboo Stewart is no stranger to movies that achieve ultimate fandom status. I mean, he was a major part of the Twilight series. I sat down with him in LA a few months ago to talk about Descendants 2 after seeing some of the footage. To say this film is going to be amazing is an understatement. I am beyond excited for it, and will be tuning in live on July 21st with my girls. Booboo had a lot to tell us about his role as Jay and the storylines of the movie.
After watching some footage of Descendants 2, our first interview was Cameron Boyce. Cameron plays Carlos in Descendants and Descendants 2, who happens to be one of my favorite VKs (Villain Kids). Cruela DeVille is one of my favorite villains and so naturally I like Carlos, who is her son. Cameron was amazing in the first film, and even better in Descendants 2 from what I saw. It seems like we will see a lot more of Carlos! In our interview, Cameron talked about the set, the training, and more.
One of my favorite things about Descendants was the costumes. I am a huge fan of the villains and so I loved seeing all the badass costumes that were inspired by them. Don’t get me wrong, the princess and prince costumes were great too, but I fell in love with the VKs clothes. While in LA a few months ago, I not only got to chat with the cast and see some of Descendants 2, I was able to talk with costume designer, Kara Saun. I loved hearing about her inspirations and the process that she goes through. Descendants 2 airs on July 21st, don’t miss it!
While in LA recently, I was lucky enough to check out some footage of Descendants 2 and talk with the cast and crew. One of my favorite interviews was with Director/Executive Producer/Co-Choreographer Kenny Ortega, Executive Producer Wendy Japhet, and Screenwriter Sara Parriott. Kenny Ortega is a legend guys – I mean, Hocus Pocus & Dirty Dancing. I always enjoy picking the brains of those that work behind the scenes to make our favorite movies.
