Picture this – a room of 25 bloggers and in walks Chris Pratt to talk about his role as Star-Lord in the latest Guardians of the Galaxy film. Of course, the room erupts in cheers and applause – and Chris loves it. I have interviewed him before, while on the set of GotG Vol 2, so I knew this was going to be a lot of fun. He is so enthusiastic and such a great guy.
It should come as no surprise to you guys that my family is big on Disney. We love everything about it – especially the movies. Pixar always brings the feels – always. I can’t get through one of their movies without crying like a baby. And apparently now I can’t get through one of their trailers without some tears shedding either. The new Cars 3 trailer was just released and it is going to leave you wanting more!
As many of you know, I am a HUGE Marvel fan – I mean, my Twitter handle has been MarvelGoddess24 since I joined Twitter. I love the comic books and I love the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe). Guardians of the Galaxy (GotG) has been one of my favorite comic book series for years and years now. It always stood out to me because of the unique characters and all of the adventures they go on. When the first movie was announced I was thrilled and when the second one was, I was even more excited. Last year, I got to go on the set of GotG Vol. 2 and it was one of my favorite experiences – until now. I was luckily invited to LA to walk the red carpet premiere and see the film before many others were able to – and my mind was BLOWN.
DisneyNature movies are some of my favorite movies to cuddle up with my daughters and watch. They love them because they are filled with adorable animals, and I love them because – well, basically the same reason. I am always impressed by how much my girls learn about nature and animals when we watch them. Yes, there are usually some rough parts to get through, but they understand the circle of life very well for a 4 and 5 year old – in part due to films like these.
My girls and I love watching movies together. In fact, once a week we have family movie night. We rotate who gets to choose the movie between the girls, myself, and my husband. Recently, we got an advance copy of Arctic Adventure on Frozen Pond and so of course, my youngest picked it for that week’s movie night. Now, I admit, sometimes kid’s movies are not at all entertaining for my husband and myself – but we grin and bear it for our daughters. This movie had both of us pleasantly surprised. It was actually really cute and fun. What a great film for the entire family to enjoy!
I cannot believe that A League of Their Own came out 25 years ago. I remember watching it over and over when I was younger. My mother and I watched it together a few times. She always told me that it was important for me to watch it because I would know to be myself and fight for what is right. And that is the same reason I plan to watch it with my daughters as they get older.
I am so excited to let you all know that I will be heading to Los Angeles from Tuesday, April 18th – Friday, April 21st for another amazing press trip! This one is filled with Marvel, Disney, Disney Nature, and ABC events! Myself and 24 other bloggers will be bringing you exclusive photos, interviews, and more while there so be sure to follow along. Trust me, you don’t want to miss any of this! We will be posting on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and more
This morning one of the best teaser trailers in Marvel history was released – Thor: Ragnarok. I have been dying to see what Thor and Hulk have been up to and why they were just too busy to participate in the Civil War. I have been reading Marvel Comics for a longtime and I am so curious to see how close their story line is to the comics – or if it is at all. This teaser trailer was everything I could have hoped for, and more.
So, I have yet to make it to the theater with my daughters to see the new live action Beauty and the Beast. I know, I know, please don’t kill me. We tried! We live in a tiny little city and our small theater was sold out the first two weekends (I really should have planned in advance but showings NEVER sell out there), and then my daughter was sick. Life has been happening and I cry a little bit each day that goes by without having seen it. Well, all that is about to change because the Sing-Along version hits theaters this weekend and I am determined to see it – even if I need to drive over an hour to a bigger theater!
My girls love everything about space! They have turned into total space nerds after our trip to the Planetarium a few years back. So when the new DVD, Floogals, arrived at our door and they noticed the characters were in rocket ships, they were thrilled! They asked if we could put the disk in right away – and we did. Within minutes they fell in love with the Floogals – and my husband and I enjoyed watching along with them as well!
