As most of you know, I am a huge Disney fan! Disney/Pixar never disappoints with their movies. I have been dying to see The Good Dinosaur ever since I first heard about it and I cannot wait for it to hit theaters THIS MONTH! Finally – it feels like we have been waiting forever. I love that it comes out the day before Thanksgiving (November 25th) because I will be taking the whole family for a special movie day since the girls have no school. I have posted fun activity sheets for this movie already (click here for those) – but here are some more to hold you over for the next week or so until you can see the film.
I don’t know about you guys, but I have been on edge waiting for a Finding Dory trailer. I got to see some footage (and meet the voices) of Finding Dory on my D23 Expo trip (read more on that here). I knew right away that this movie was going to be a hit. I mean, even take the fame and success (and following) of Finding Nemo – the cast is stellar and the story line is going to be a hit! This is a movie that my entire family has been looking forward to since before it was even announced (yes, that is possible!). We are counting the days and are so excited that it will be in theaters the month of my daughter’s 5th birthday. This is definitely where we will be having her birthday party, no question about it. She wouldn’t have it any other way.
As most of you know, I got to walk the red (or should I say purple) carpet for the Inside Out premiere this past summer. It was an incredible experience and I fell in love with the movie that night. I could not wait to get home and take my family to go see it. We went to see it twice in the theater and my girls have no idea, but they will be getting a copy of it for Christmas (yes it is KILLING me to wait that long to watch it again). Because I love this movie so much (if you have not seen it yet, you are totally missing out), I have teamed up with my good friend Joyce over at Women and Their Pretties to give away TWO copies. One lucky winner will get an Inside Out Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack and another will receive an Inside Out Digital Download.
I don’t know about you, but I am counting down the days until The Good Dinosaur is in theaters! My girls have been asking me nearly every day when we will be going to see it. They are not exactly thrilled when I tell them it will be about a month, but they are excited that we plan to take them opening day. This movie is going to be so good – I just know it. I got to see a little bit of the footage at the D23 Expo this past summer and WOW! Disney/Pixar is bringing it with this one guys. There will be lots of feels, so take tissues along. In the spirit of Halloween (this weekend!) I wanted to share with you a Good Dinosaur pumpkin stencil. Someone please carve this and send me a picture, I would love to see it! There are also some new activity sheets for you to print and share with your kiddos! Have fun!
The time has finally arrived! Last night, the official Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer debuted during halftime of Monday Night Football. Even though I was still exhausted from my Disney trip and fighting a little bit of a cold, I stayed up to watch it. And then I watched it again – and again. I think the grand total was about 15 times. My husband and I would pause it and speculate on every little detail. Last night also marked the day that you could first buy advance tickets – and the force broke Fandango. I was unable to get my tickets last night, but plan to try again a little later today. Everyone was online trying to secure their spot to be one of the first to watch the film.
As most of you know I am a HUGE Star Wars fan! But something you may not know – I am also a huge football fan. I am thrilled to let you know that two of my favorite things are combining tonight – the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer is debuting during halftime on ESPN’s Monday Night Football tonight (Monday 10/19/2015) when the New York Giants take on the Philadelphia Eagles in Philadelphia! The game starts at 5:15 p.m. PDT/8:15 p.m. EDT. Oh, and Lucasfilm also released the final version of the poster yesterday. Swoon. I am counting the down the days for this movie. My husband and I are seriously considering attending the midnight showing of it. We need to make up our minds quickly though because following the trailer launch, tickets to this highly anticipated cinematic event will be on sale everywhere movie tickets are sold! I have a Fandango gift card that is burning a hole in my pocket and anxiously awaiting for tonight!
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.
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!

My daughters are HUGE My Little Pony fans. They love Friendship is Magic as well as the Equestria Girls series (they even love the old shows that I grew up watching). Anything My Little Pony is a must have in our house. And I must admit, my husband and I enjoy watching the shows and movies along with the girls. On September 26th, My Little Pony: Equestria Girls: Friendship Games aired on Discovery Family Channel. We were lucky enough to have received the DVD before it was aired, but we still watched it while it was on TV. We have alreayd watching this movie through several times – and the whole family enjoys it! We love the characters and I cannot wait to see even more movies from the Equestria Girls!
