They’re baaaaaack. Ana, Elsa, Kristoff and Olaf!

I’m not sure how you feel about Frozen, but I love it and I am not here to sway you either way, because I am totally biased. I love the story, the characters and YES the music! :) I’m thrilled that the power couple Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez are back with songwriting and the film will feather the familiar voices of Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell, Jonathan Goff and Josh Gad!

The Frozen soundtrack is one of my favorites. Our family car isn’t tech friendly so we have a cd player and the only cds I own are Disney. Currently for the kids Moana is the running favorite that I play, but I also have Frozen and Into the Woods. haha. Let’s just say if they are being difficult, I will play Let it Go! :)

ANYWAY, here’s the new trailer for Frozen 2, see for yourself, but make sure to come back because we need to chat.

SO! What do you think? I have so many questions, which is typical of watching any teaser trailer. Why is it so desert-like, what the heck happened to Ana’s hair (it’s super cute, but still), why are there so many reindeer and why is Elsa stuck on some random island?! I got scared for a minute when I didn’t see my boy, Olaf, but he popped in there! You know how winter was coming for so long in GOT? Well looks like Fall or something dark is taking over Arendelle, if that is where they are even at!

We get no glimpse into who the “villain” will be in this trailer, or why it seems everyone is separated. Something went down, and I’m anxious to find out. I guess we have to wait until they release more peeks into the film!

Please tell me someone is excited to see this!

Frozen 2 opens in U.S. theaters on Nov. 22, 2019!

My calendar is marked. :) How about you?

Toy Story 4 - More New Characters & Teaser Trailer!

I just about burst in tears of laughter watching this teaser trailer of two new characters, Ducky (voiced by Keegan-Michael Key) and Bunny (voiced by Jordan Peele), and their “reaction” to the news of Toy Story 4.

We are huge fans of Key and Peele at our house, their voices are so recognizable and they are hilarious. I feel they’ll add an element to the film that engages our teen kiddos differently than other Toy Story films. They really have no connection to Tom Hanks and Tim Allen, so new voices and comedic personalities will bring a fresh perspective.

Ducky and Bunny are carnival prize toys, and their goal is to be won, which is definitely not something the other toys in Woody’s crew can relate to. Their adventure I am sure is going to be side-splitting!

I know, this is my second post on the film just short a few days apart, but I am pretty excited about it! Mark your calendar for June 21, 2019!

Toy Story 4 Teaser Trailer

Entertainment, DisneyCamilleComment

Just when you might have thought the adventures for Woody, Buzz and friends were over, we get a sneak peek into a new, big world that Woody finds himself in with his new kid, Bonnie.

If you recall previous films in the franchise, a toy’s purpose is to be there for its child, so when Bonnie brings home a repurposed spork called “Forky,” things take a little turn and the poor guy seems to have a serious identity crisis!

Forky, voiced by comedian Tony Hale, is convinced he doesn’t belong, I mean, he honestly looks like a cute Pinterest fail, and I can only imagine the level of comedy that will ensue as he tries to find his way in the toy room!

I’m excited to also share that the all-star cast that I grew up to love from 1995 is still voicing their respective characters in this fourth release. 

Here’s a sneak peek at the teaser trailer!  

Toy Story 4 and Forky debut in the US on June 21, 2019!

Star Wars: Forces of Destiny

Star Wars fans rejoice because Disney and Lucasfilm have announced a new animated shorts series that celebrates the stories of iconic heroes throughout the Star Wars universe. Fans will be delighted to see key heroines of the films: Rey, Jyn Erso, Sabine Wren, Princess Leia, Ahsoka Tano. There are books, toys and even a TV special that will be following later this year!

"Star Wars Forces of Destiny is for anyone who has been inspired by Leia's heroism, Rey's courage, or Ahsoka's tenacity," – Kathleen Kennedy, President of Lucasfilm

About the Series

Narrated by Lupita Wyong'o (Maz Kanata), the Disney YouTube channel will launch the animated shorts in July 2017. 

What's extra exciting, is that the series will remain true to the Star Wars canon, so fans will have an opportunity to see, as Kathleen Kennedy stated, "small moments and everyday decisions that shape who these characters are." It's important for us to remember that even small decisions impact our destinies, and our kids need to understand that, too! We can't wait to watch them together.

Adventure Figures

Joining Disney and Lucasfilm on this venture is Hasbro, showcasing newly created 'Adventure Figures' (think dolls + action figures). If you watched the Star Wars Celebration live stream | Day 2, they revealed the 11" figures to Daisy Ridley (Rey), Ashley Eckstein (Ahsoka Tano) and Tiya Sircar (Sabine Wren)!

It is so important that our kids can run down toy aisles with strong female character representation, and more options that don't involve a beach outfit, stilettos, or shopping bag. I was not a fan of dolls growing up and I loathed dress-up dolls. In addition to the fabulous heroines we will see other favorite heroes, sidekicks and villains in the consumer products line.

The figures will hit the shelves in August 2017, along with a global launch of bedding, toys, books, and apparel. OH, Did I also mention that Hasbro will roll out Star Wars Forces of Destiny role play and accessories? You'll find Rey's Extendable Staff and a new electronic Jedi Power Lightsaber toy. I'm most excited about that staff, and I'm sure my kiddos will be thrilled!

Will you be watching Star Wars: Force of Destiny this summer?
