Disney moana and maui

The Moment We Have All Been Waiting For… Moana Has a Voice

Moana is going to be a huge movie. Not only is it from Disney (so it is pretty much guaranteed to be amazing) – the hype is already ridiculous. Even before it was announced that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson would be voicing the once-mighty demi-god, Maui, talk of this movie was all over the internet. For months everyone has been speculating on who the voice of Moana will be and Disney has been (brilliantly) keeping us in the dark – until now. That is right – we now know who will be voicing the strong and beautiful Moana in next year’s film – Native Hawaiian newcomer Auli’i Cravalho who is just 14! This is super exciting news and even though I have been over the moon about this film for months, I am somehow even more excited about it now.

Disney The Good Dinosaur Poster

New Trailer, Images, & Poster for Disney/Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur

My whole family is counting down the days until The Good Dinosaur comes out in theaters. Since we first heard about it, we knew it was a “must see in the theater” type of movie. I am so excited that it comes out Thanksgiving because we already have plans to take the girls that night (since they will have no school in the morning). They don’t know – but boy will it be a good surprise. I got to see some footage of The Good Dinosaur at the D23 Expo and I was really impressed. As true with any Disney/Pixar movie, be sure to bring the tissues. I only saw a few minutes and they were powerful enough that whenever I think about them, I tear up. I know that this movie is going to be HUGE. It is definitely a must see for the entire family this holiday season – so schedule in some time for it. And remember, Spot will be a part of the Disney Infinity family soon so you will want to be familiar with the movie. Some new images and even a new trailer were just released from Disney/Pixar – so be sure to check those out and get ready to watch Spot & Arlo and their friends on the big screen next month!

Disney Star Wars The Force Awakens

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Facebook 360 Experience

As you all know, I am a ridiculously huge Star Wars fan. I have been counting the days until Episode VII comes to theaters since the second it was announced. I am even debating on going to a midnight showing (although being a mom of two little ones means that the next morning will involve lots of coffee!). Well, I just got some Star Wars news that made me totally geek out. I apologize for not getting it to your sooner – I was too busy playing around with it.

Disney Frozen Free Fall: Snowball Fight

FanGirl Friday: Frozen Free Fall: Snowball Fight

We all know what a big gamer I am – and also what a big Disney fan I am. I am so thrilled that my 4 year old is starting to get the hang of the PlayStation. We have been joining forces on Disney Infinity lately and having a blast together. She also loves to play matching and challenge games by herself so when I heard about Frozen Free Fall: Snowball Fight – I knew it was a must download for our console! The fact that it has a two player mode had me itching to team up with my daughter and play. I love these types of games and so does she, and with 195 FREE levels, what is there to complain about?

Disney The Jungle Book

Disney’s The Jungle Book Trailer Released

If you follow me on social media than you probably already saw that I shared Disney’s The Jungle Book trailer. It was released today and has made me even more excited for this film (which I did not think possible!). Ever since seeing some footage at the D23 Expo (read about The Jungle Book and other Live Action Film announcements here) I have been dying for you guys to see some of it. The trailer that was just released is incredible and I think it goes to show just how amazing this movie is going to be. I cannot wait to take my young daughters! We all just watched the trailer together (over and over and over) and they keep asking when they will be able to see it. It is going to be a must see movie for any family – I promise! I dare you to watch the trailer below and tell me that you aren’t even the least bit excited about it, I know you will be!

Disney the good dino printable

The Good Dinosaur Free Printable Coloring Pages & Activity Sheets

My daughters and I cannot wait to see The Good Dinosaur in theaters in November. I got to see some sneak peak footage at the D23 Expo last month and it is going to be incredible. In true Disney fashion, it will bring the feels and is a tear jerker. I have been dying for some good (no pun intended) coloring sheets for my girls. I have already introduced them to Arlo and Spot and they keep asking for Good Dino things. I have tried to draw them some coloring pages and they have turned out – less than stellar. They were thrilled to see I had some much better ones for them today. Download them below for your little ones to color! There is also a fun memory card game and hexaflexagon project you can print as well.

Disney force friday

NERF First Order Stormtrooper Blaster Unboxing

As most of you know, I am a huge Star Wars fan! I mean, my husband and I went to Star Wars Weekend for our honeymoon and had a blast! We love the series and are counting down the days for Episode VIII! Unless you live under a rock, you should know that this week marked Force Friday. On this amazing day a wave of Star Wars toys were released. And they were announced to the public in probably the coolest way I have ever seen – in unboxing videos on YouTube that were live streaming! Hot off the heels of this 18+ hour global live unboxing event on YouTube where highlights of the new product range were officially unveiled, the celebration continued as more than 3,000 retail locations in the U.S. opened their doors at midnight for fans to be among the first to discover new Star Wars products. Check out my favorite one – filmed in Mexico City, the Star Wars First Order Stormtrooper Deluxe NERF Blaster from Hasbro – it looks incredible!

Disney pixar in a box

Pixar in a Box: Free Online STEAM Curriculum

Pixar has always been one of my favorite companies. I love all of their movies (who doesn’t) and now I have a reason to love them even more. My husband and I are super into STEAM and now – STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, ARTS, Math) – because we feel they are very important things for kids to learn and focus on. My husband is an engineer so he is always focusing on these type of things with the girls. My oldest is only 4 but she has helped him build robots already. We are very excited about the newly launched Pixar in a Box. Pixar has teamed up with Khan Academy to create an online resource that explores the academic concepts behind Pixar Animation Studios’ creative process. It shows how Pixar filmmakers use STEAM to create movie magic. Through a series of video lessons, interactive exercises, and hands-on activities, students will discover how the academic concepts they learn in school enable Pixar filmmakers to create new worlds, animate unique characters and tell stories through animation. Although designed especially for students in middle and high school, these resources are available to learners of all ages, and completely free of charge.

Disney Disney Interactive Gaming

What’s New with Disney Gaming

Since I am a huge gamer, I was really looking forward to the Disney Interactive Gaming Panel at D23 Expo. I was beyond excited from the moment I found out that it was on our itinerary and I would be able to attend. I was itching to hear news on Disney Infinity 3.0 characters and I had my fingers crossed for a Kingdom Hearts III release date. While I did not get that release date, I did get some pretty exciting news about the game itself. There was also some pretty awesome Star Wars games (and Playstation!) announcements.
