I love waking up to good news! This morning the teaser trailer for Toy Story 4 dropped and before I even watched I was a ball of emotions. I didn’t know whether to laugh, cry or scream from excitement. I just watched the trailer and held my breath.
Woody has always been confident about his place in the world and that his priority is taking care of his kid, whether that’s Andy or Bonnie. But when Bonnie adds a reluctant new toy called “Forky” to her room, a road trip adventure alongside old and new friends will show Woody how big the world can be for a toy. Directed by Josh Cooley (“Riley’s First Date?”) and produced by Jonas Rivera (“Inside Out,” “Up”) and Mark Nielsen (associate producer “Inside Out”), Disney•Pixar’s “Toy Story 4” ventures to U.S. theaters on June 21, 2019.
This teaser trailer had me CRACKING UP. I love Forky’s story, and I love that Woody is always confident in his purpose. I immediately felt nostalgic watching this. “Somebody get him before he puts an eye out!” made me literally laugh out loud and took me right back to Andy’s room. I cannot wait to see how Woody and the old toys find their place with Bonnie. I’m sure Forky’s “internal” struggle of whether to fulfill their purpose as a spork or a toy is going to keep Woody and Buzz PLENTY busy. All in all I’m excited to see the new story unfold. 2019 is looking to be a nostalgic year for us 90s babies in terms of Disney! I’m excited to watch all the magic happen!
How did the new trailer make you feel? Are you excited about Toy Story 4?
Toy Story 4 ventures into theaters everywhere – June 21 2019
I was invited by Disney to an early preview of Mickey: The True Original Exhibition as press. All opinions are my own.
Last week I told you guys that Mickey: The True Original was coming to NYC and yesterday I had a chance to get a sneak peak of the exhibit. I was hype especially coming off of watching Mickeys 90th Spectacular, so I was READY to be immersed into ALL things Mickey and Disney.
BABY!!!! These artists did not disappoint. Mickey: The True Original takes the interactive/pop up experience to the next level as only Disney can. With each room, the artists took their love for Mickey and created in a unique way that only they could. With something different in every room, the love for the birthday boy was evident in the recreation of timeless moments in Mickey’s history and modern takes on the mouse.
Each room brings you art from a different artist and you experience Mickey in new ways in every few steps. Along the way there are special moments too, like hidden Mickeys and a special treat once you get close to the end of the exhibit that you definitely don’t want to miss ;). Check out some more pictures from the exhibit below.
“Mickey: The True Original Exhibition celebrates 90 years of Mickey Mouse’s influence on art and pop culture.
Opening in November 2018, this immersive experience is inspired by Mickey’s status as a ‘true original’ and his consistent impact on the arts and creativity in all its forms. Guests will have the chance to explore the 16,000 square-foot exhibition featuring both historic and contemporary work from renowned artists.”
Tickets for Mickey: The True Original can be purchased here. The exhibit is open November 8th, 2018 through February 2019 so you have plenty of time to make travel plans if you don’t live in New York. Trust me when I say, it’s an experience you don’t want to miss.
November 18th marks the iconic birthday of everyone’s favorite mouse! As you can expect the parks will be going ALL out for Mickey’s 90th with each park. They’ll all be hosting an array of different events and activities you can attend to show your appreciation for Mickey. Unfortunately here in NYC we haven’t been blessed with a Disney Park. Nevertheless, Disney is helping us to celebrate Mickey in a BIG WAY!
Mickey: The True Original Exhibition is NYCs latest immersive experience inspired by the mouse himself. Opening on November 8th, you will be able to view an array of Mickey inspired art in this 16000 square foot exhibit located in Manhattan. The exhibit promises to show you Mickey like you have never seen him before.
With these new immersive pop-ups being the latest trend, I’m excited to get up close and personal with Mickey in a new way! Mickey: The True Original Exhibition runs from November 8th to February 10th 2019 and you can purchase tickets now via Disney.
Keep up with the exhibit by following Mickey: The True Original on Instagram.
Cant make it to the exhibit? Want to celebrate from the comfort of your own home? Mickey’s 90th Spectacular airs this Sunday, November 4th 2018 at 8|7c on ABC.
My family and I attended a free screening of Disney’s The Nutcracker and the Four Realms. All opinions expressed are my own.
Last night my family got to see an advance screening of Disney’s newest movie The Nutcracker and the Four Realms. To say I was excited was an understatement and I waited anxiously to get off work ALL DAY. I had told RJ in advance that we were going to see the movie because I wanted to get him excited for it even though he was excited about getting to go to the movies in general. I showed him the trailer and waited for his reaction.
And then I asked excitedly “Do you wanna see that? And he was like… “Ummmm I wanna see The Grinch”. HA! Shut my little dreams down. But let’s remember he’s (newly) 4 and so cartoons are life. That’s all he knows. ANYWHO despite him wanting to see the Grinch and not giving a hoot about the trailer I showed him we ALL took ourselves to the screening last night.
Please excuse me for looking atrocious, I just came from work!
Ratings, Run Time and Synopsis
All Clara (Mackenzie Foy) wants is a key – a one-of-a-kind key that will unlock a box that holds a priceless gift. A golden thread, presented to her at godfather Drosselmeyer’s (Morgan Freeman) annual holiday party, leads her to the coveted key—which promptly disappears into a strange and mysterious parallel world. It’s there that Clara encounters a soldier named Phillip (Jayden Fowora-Knight), a gang of mice and the regents who preside over three Realms: Land of Snowflakes, Land of Flowers and Land of Sweets. Clara and Phillip must brave the ominous Fourth Realm, home to the tyrant Mother Ginger (Helen Mirren), to retrieve Clara’s key and hopefully return harmony to the unstable world.
The Nutcracker and the Four Realms is rated PG and has a run time of 1 hour and 40 minutes.
Is the Nutcracker and the Four Realms appropriate for younger children?
The movie is rated PG and I think that starts at age…. 7? I think the movie is true to rating. The scene where Clara and Phillip go to the Fourth Realm is a little dark and RJ told me he didnt like it and it was scary. If you have younger kids I would just be mindful of that scene. Other than that I think it’s appropriate.
So… will my son enjoy the movie?
So even though RJ completely played me when I showed him the trailer, he loved the movie (other than the scene I mentioned). When he got home from school today he asked me could he watch it on TV LOL. The movie is honestly amazing and great for all audiences. I think the best age would be elementary aged, any older or younger and they (the boys) may not be too interested. But all in all, your whole family will love this movie!
The Nutcracker and the Four Realms releases in theaters everywhere 11.02.18!
