Summer is heating up and so is the entertainment news as we get closer and closer to all those summer blockbusters. And since schools are letting out for break, there are a lot of fun DVDs and apps for kids being announced right now, too. Here’s what I’ve found for you this week.
I receive a lot of entertainment news – movie releases and clips, advanced TV programming notices, music drop dates, etc. – and it’s really more than I could conceivably post about without renaming my blog “Entertainment From the ‘Ville”. As a Disney fan, I do generally try and share some of that news, and occasionally a children’s program update.
There’s a lot of it that may be of real interest to you all, though, so I’ve decided to try and write a weekly round up. Check out all the upcoming movies below.
Marvel’s Iron Man 3 – May 3, 2013 Release Date #IronMan3
Fun new LEGO-inspired movie posters and new trailer now out.
Thanks to Disney for providing us with a copy of this DVD.
Disney Junior’s Doc McStuffins
From the very first time that we took Bubbles to see her pediatrician (at age 1 week), she cried. She cried when the nurse came in to get her measurements, she cried when the doctor came in to see her, cried while waiting for shots, and cried during the shots. Crying didn’t really let up much until we were in the car and she realized that we weren’t going back in.
I thought it would end by her 1 year checkup, but it didn’t. Nor did it end at 15 months, 18 months, or 21 months. Yep. Lots of tears, every time. Each time the flow would grow shorter, but they were always there.
It was around her 21 month appointment that we discovered Doc McStuffins on Disney Junior. I don’t remember exactly how we found it; we may have just been a little slow to change the channel after one of her other shows. But from the start she showed a lot of interest. If you’re not familiar with the show it centers around “Doc” McStuffins, a 6-year-old that is able to speak with toys and stuffed animals. Her mom is a doctor of people and Doc has become a doctor of toys. Along with Hallie the hippo, Stuffy the dragon, Lambie the (you guessed it) lamb and Chilly the snowman, she runs a clinic to fix any toy boo-boos that may arise.
Disney’s 2013 Oscar Nominations
I’m always sharing my favorite Disney movies and activities with you and today I have more Disney news. I’m excited to announce that The Walt Disney Studios picked up a total of SEVENTEEN Oscar nods this year! How amazing is that? Lincoln was a standout receiving a total of 12, including one for the coveted Best Picture.
