We got a teaser trailer for Maleficent 2 last night and ummmm… I’m gonna let you guys watch it before I give my opinion.
We are a week and a half away from Aladdin being released in theaters everywhere and literally every clip that I have seen has no disappointed. I keep telling y’all I had faith in Aladdin since the first trailer. And I’ve held on to that optimism since. With every trailer that followed that, the visuals have continued to stun and the characters I’ve loved since I was a little girl have literally come to life. There have been some doubts about Will Smith playing the role of genie, but I’m excited to see him take on this role. If anyone can do justice to the role played by the late Robin Williams, it’s him.
It’s here guys! It’s finally time! On Monday tickets for Disney’s Aladdin went on sale everywhere tickets are sold. Monday night on our variety show The Brown Side of Disney we discussed Aladdin for quite some time. This movie is not without controversy but I feel like it’s not getting the hype it deserves! I’m definitely going to be getting my tickets in advance, even if I’m sitting up in there alone! Are y’all excited about Aladdin?
Can you believe it’s almost summer? And when June hits I will be spending ALL my time at the movies. There are so many incredible Disney (and non-disney) movies dropping between now and the end of the year and I cannot wait to give AMC all my coins! LOL. Toy Story is probably the Disney movie RJ is looking forward to seeing the most. It’s such a surreal feeling to remember my little brother and I being obsessed with this movie when we were growing up. And to think now I have children that know and love the very same characters is crazy.
This morning Disney made my day and released a new (new for real) trailer for the upcoming live action version of The Lion King. Of course I had a million and one things to do so I had to wait until this afternoon to watch the trailer but it was definitely worth the wait. The new trailer for The Lion King was ALMOST everything that I hoped it would be. Leave it up to Disney to have me all emotional in less than two minutes. Check out the trailer & my reaction below before you keep reading.
I’m not gonna lie, the Disneynature movies don’t get the same amount of love that other Disney movies get. Unless you’re a one year old. If Zayn is excited about any movie coming out, it’s this one. He knows what the trailer sounds like and when he hears the commercial come on Disney Junior he’s running in from another room to catch it. It’s always adorable to see him gasp and point like it’s his first time. Every single time.
My kids are animal lovers. I’m pretty sure RJ has transferred his love of animals to his little brother. We frequent zoos, the aquarium and take all chances to get up close and personal with animals. The majority of their favorite movies involve animal characters and RJ spends a lot of time perfecting his animal sounds. It only makes sense that they’re just as excited about this movie as any other one. I’m also pretty sure that they think it’s going to be something similar to Happy Feet. They still watch that movie on repeat.
Am I the only one who feels like it takes forever for these movie things to come out? I mean second to Aladdin, Toy Story is the movie that I am the most excited about this year. This is basically my entire childhood. My little brother and I had countless toys (should’ve saved them), and now my boys are in love with Toy Story as well! I was really excited to see this full length trailer come out yesterday morning. I totally waited for RJ to come home from school to film a reaction video for it but in true unpredictable 4 year old fashion he wasn’t feeling it, so no reaction for this trailer. But minus the preschool cuteness, check out the official trailer for Toy Story 4 below and let me know what you think.
So who are these new toys?
GABBY GABBY – an adorable, talking pull-string doll from the 1950s. But unfortunately for her, a manufacturing defect in her pull-string voice box has left her sounding anything but adorable. She has spent more than 60 years forgotten in the depths of a jam-packed antique store—her only companions are a band of voiceless ventriloquist dummies. Gabby Gabby knows someone will want her if only she can find a working voice box to repair hers.
DUKE CABOOM – a 1970s toy based on Canada’s greatest stuntman. Riding his powerful Caboom stunt-cycle, Duke is always prepared to show off his stunt poses with confidence and swagger. However, Woody learns quickly that Duke has an Achilles heel: He has never been able to do the awesome stunts advertised in his own toy commercial. For years, Duke has been sitting in an antique store, constantly reliving the failures of his tragic past.
GIGGLE MCDIMPLES – a miniature plastic doll from the 1980s Giggle McDimples toy line. Giggle is Bo Peep’s best friend. Small enough to perch on Bo’s shoulder, Giggle is Bo’s confidant, supporter and advisor. “Giggle is Bo’s Jiminy Cricket—we’re able to get insight on Bo through their relationship together,” says Cooley. “Giggle is definitely the smallest toy in the Toy Story universe. She’s been stepped on, vacuumed up, and probably put up a kid’s nose in her time.”
BENSON – a classic, antique ventriloquist dummy, and Gabby Gabby’s right hand. He leads a small group of ventriloquist dummies that serve as Gabby’s henchmen. With no person to give them a voice, these silent toys patrol the antique store with a looming quietness that is inherently unsettling.
About Toy Story 4:
Woody (voice of Tom Hanks) 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. So when Bonnie’s beloved new craft-project-turned-toy, Forky (voice of Tony Hale), declares himself as “trash” and not a toy, Woody takes it upon himself to show Forky why he should embrace being a toy. But when Bonnie takes the whole gang on her family’s road trip excursion, Woody ends up on an unexpected detour that includes a reunion with his long-lost friend Bo Peep (voice of Annie Potts). After years of being on her own, Bo’s adventurous spirit and life on the road belie her delicate porcelain exterior. As Woody and Bo realize they’re worlds apart when it comes to life as a toy, they soon come to find that’s the least of their worries.
Disney·Pixar’s TOY STORY 4 ventures to U.S. theaters on June 21, 2019.
When the second trailer for Aladdin dropped and we got the first “live” look at the genie, boy was the internet talking!! Everyone had something to say, as usual. In Entertainment Weekly’s first look, everyone was mad that Will Smith wasn’t blue. Then when we finally got to see him blue, the internet was BIG MAD. People complained that the CGI was horrible, that he looked creepy, and that he wouldn’t live up to Robin Williams’ genie.
