Oz the Great and Powerful

Disney's Oz the Great and Powerful Movie - Opens March 8th, 2013

There is so much exciting Oz the Great and Powerful news to share with you all.  As the movie’s March 8th release date draws closer it seems something fun and Oz-y is being announced or released almost every day.  Just in the past week there have been three new items – and I have them all for you.

First, Disney just announced that superstar Mariah Carey has recorded the song “Almost Home” for the movie.  You’ll have a chance to hear it before the movie, too; it’s going to be released as a single on February 19th.  “‘Almost Home’ has a message that works beautifully with the film,” Mariah Carey says of the song she co-wrote and co-produced  for Oz The Great and Powerful. “It’s a feel-good record; it gives you the feeling of reaching your home and being with people that you love.” Continue reading »

Marvel’s Iron Man 3 – Coming May 2013!

Marvel's "Iron Man 3" hits theaters on May 3, 2013

Looks like Tony Stark may need to make a few repairs…

The new trailer for Iron Man 3 is now out and it is awesome!  My family and I are anxiously awaiting its May 3, 2013 arrival.  We’ve been watching our copies of Iron Man, Iron Man 2, and The Avengers to tide us over in the meantime.  It’s hard to get enough of the great Marvel superheros!

Marvel’s Iron Man 3 pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?

Be sure to follow Iron Man 3 on Facebook and Twitter – who knows what information and sneak peeks they might share between now and release!

Disney/Pixar’s BRAVE is in theaters now, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t still hard at work with new projects.  One of their next films will be Monsters University, the prequel to the highly-praised Monsters, Inc.  Directed by Dan Scanlon (Cars) and produced by Kori Rae (Up, The Incredibles, Monsters, Inc.), the film unlocks the door to how Mike Wazowski (voiced by Billy Crystal) and James P. Sullivan (voiced by John Goodman) overcame their initial differences and became best of friends.

Disney/Pixar's Monsters University

We are really looking forward to the film.  Monsters, Inc. is one of my all-time favorite movies.  Between Mike’s jokes, Sully’s soft heart, Boo’s adorableness, the surprise ending – there was nothing about it we don’t like.  We own it on DVD and watch it now and then.  Bubbles loves the monsters and giggles right along with Boo.  Hopefully we will be able to take her to see the new one in the theater!  The film opens on June 21st, 2013 and will be shown in Disney Digital 3D in select theaters.  While it’s almost an entire year away, the first trailer has been released!  There are four slightly different versions; this one is the “Clothes” one.

You can also head over to the Monsters University Facebook page and see three other version of the trailer.  Vote for your favorite and the winning line from the fan favorite will be drawn by a Pixar artist and shared exclusively with Monsters University Facebook fans!
