First Official Full Length Trailer for Toy Story 4

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.

LEADING THE WAY — In Disney•Pixar’s “Toy Story 4,” Bonnie’s beloved new craft-project-turned-toy, Forky, declares himself trash and not a toy, so Woody takes it upon himself to show Forky why he should embrace being a toy. Featuring Tom Hanks as the voice of Woody, and Tony Hale as the voice of Forky, “Toy Story 4” opens in U.S. theaters on June 21, 2019. ©2019 Disney•Pixar. All Rights Reserved.

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.

We Finally Have an Official Trailer for Avengers: Endgame!!

The Russo brothers have been STINGY ok?! If no one else has said it I will! haha. Up until today we have had very little glimpse of Avengers: Endgame. I mean, we could all speculate what the movie would be about. We already know that Captain Marvel is going to basically save the entire world. But since Thanos snapped his fingers and dusted half the population, we’ve all been left with our mouths hanging open and our eyes wide. I have been WAITING. And this morning, Marvel finally blessed us with the Official Trailer for Avengers: Endgame. Continue Reading →

Is Captain Marvel A Movie All About Feminism? – An Honest Review

I had no idea if I was going to be able to get into a showing of Captain Marvel this weekend. Ya’ll know I’m a procrastinator so I foolishly didn’t purchase any tickets in advance and left my marvel viewing up to fate. Luckily Jesus was on my side and my grandmother is amazing so she watched the babies last night while we went to an 8pm showing.

The controversy around Captain Marvel and Brie Larson was at a HIGH before opening weekend even started. Carol Danvers is the MCU’s first female to have a solo lead. “We” DESERVED. Some people didn’t feel the same. There has been controversy and bad reviews long before the movie hit theaters. Somehow, Captain Marvel got placed under the feminism umbrella, and I honestly don’t feel like it should have.

Captain Marvel isn’t just for women/girls.

Ralph Breaks the Internet Art Class + Giveaway

I was invited to a free art class with a guest hosted by Disney and The Art Studio NY, to celebrate the in-home release of Ralph Breaks the Internet.

Over the weekend I was invited with a group of other bloggers to take a painting class in celebration of Ralph Breaks the Internet being released on Digital and DVD/Blu-ray. When I received the invitation I was excited. I’ve done paint and sips before and it’s a super fun experience. Date night it is!

The Art Studio NY is not your typical paint and sip y’all. It is a LEGIT art studio. They offer all kind of lessons, and not going to lie, I felt a little intimidated once I realized what was about to go down. I arrived and sat down in front of a BLANK CANVAS. *insert all kinds of panic*

A couple nights ago, the first screening for Captain Marvel took place and the reactions have been awesome! The lucky few took to Twitter (I love it) to share just how amazing the film is.

I’ve already talked about how 2019 is going to be such an amazing and nostalgic year for us millennial babies and I’m glad that Captain Marvel is bringing some of that feel to the big screen also. Check out some of my favorite reactions below.

Should I Take My Toddler to See The LEGO Movie 2?

Everything really was awesome this weekend. We headed out bright and early Saturday morning to check out The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part. RJ watches every single LEGO movie/show he can find. He loves blocks and he always has, so I knew he was going to be hype about going to see this one. So is the LEGO movie a good movie for young children? Check out my review below.

4 Things I Learned Screening Fighting with My Family That Have Nothing to do with Wrestling

So I’m not gonna lie to you guys, when I was given the opportunity to screen Fighting with my Family, I opened my email with confusion. It has been a LONG time since I watched anything wrestling related and I was not familiar with Paige, nor her rise to fame at all. Still, the trailer intrigued me and I decided to give it a shot, and of course the fact that Dwayne Johnson stars in the film also may have been a persuading factor. 

FIGHTING WITH MY FAMILY is a heartwarming comedy based on the incredible true story of WWE Superstar Paige™. Born into a tight-knit wrestling family, Paige and her brother Zak are ecstatic when they get the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to try out for WWE. But when only Paige earns a spot in the competitive training program, she must leave her family and face this new, cut-throat world alone. Paige’s journey pushes her to dig deep, fight for her family, and ultimately prove to the world that what makes her different is the very thing that can make her a star.

When I finished watching the movie I was so glad that I took a chance. Fighting with My Family is so much more than a wrestling movie. You will laugh, you may cry, and you will fall in love with the “Knights”. No spoilers ahead, I’m going to tell you a few lessons that rang true when I viewed this film, and during my interview with the cast, Paige herself, and director Stephen Merchant.

3 Disney Spots You Might’ve Missed If You Boycotted “The Big Game”

So yesterday was “the big game” and I honestly have zero interest in taking part in anything NFL related.

I didn’t have my tv on AT ALL, but I was tuned in via internet. Every time a trailer dropped I was ready and I ESPECIALLY was looking for the sneak peek of Toy Story 4.

If you’re like me and didn’t tune into the game or anything like that at all, no worries. I’m here to share with you friends, all 3 Disney spots that aired during “The Big Game”.

The One City I’m Looking Forward to in 2019 – #Aladdin

I’m a millennial. I have all the big wanderlust dreams and I’d love nothing more than to drop everything at a moments notice and take flight. I can’t wait to give my children the travel experiences I never had and show them the world in a whole new way. That being said, we thankfully have some travel plans this year.

In a little over a week I’ll be headed to the Courage to Earn More Retreat in the Bay Area! I’m hype about it for so many reasons, and I’ll be sharing my thoughts real soon. We also made some plans for both of the boys birthdays later this year. RJ is turning 5 and I can’t believe it! That’s a whole separate emotional, time is going by so fast icantbelievethisismylife post. Of all the plans I hope to see this year I’m personally biased. I definitely have somewhere I’m looking forward to visiting the most.
