Monday night our family was invited to a screening of Disney’s Finding Dory.  Bubbles hasn’t been too interested in going to the theater lately, but when I told her we had Finding Dory tickets she was really excited.  We love Finding Nemo and she wanted to see the characters on the big screen.

My Finding Dory Review: 5 Reasons You Will Love Disney Pixar's Finding Dory

The movie did not disappoint at all.  Bubbles came out of the theater talking nonstop about her favorite parts and how much fun she had and when could we see it again. Continue reading »

I’m about to put two names together that I really never thought I would.  Those two names are “Disney” and “Lewis Black”.  And I’m seriously in love.

Who else but Lewis Black could be Anger in the new Disney*Pixar film Inside Out, coming June 19, 2015

I have been a Lewis Black fan for a long time.  A few years ago my husband and I even had the opportunity to see him perform live here in Louisville.  Pretty sure I own all his albums, too. Continue reading »

There have been lots of internet whisperings since Toy Story 3 left us all sobbing into our popcorn as we watched Buzz, Woody, and all their friends hold hands and brace for the end.  “Will there be a Toy Story 4?”  “If there is a Toy Story 4, will it follow the familiar friends, or spin off to new toys?”

It's official! Toy Story 4 is happening. The release date will be June 16, 2017

Disney shorts have always been one of my favorite things about Disney movies.  The shorts have been a way for artists to play around and try out new concepts before turning them into bigger projects.  They also can give us brief peeks inside the lives of characters we already love.

I’m not alone in my love for them, apparently, because you can buy Pixar Short Films Collection 1 and Pixar Short Films Collection 2 on DVD.

Happy Easter!  So thankful that today actually feels like Easter – warm and sunny!  And we’ve been able to enjoy the day with family and friends.  Really a perfect day.

Bubbles had a wonderful morning of chasing down eggs and opening treats.  Then we had lunch, where one of Ashley’s friends from college declared my White Cheddar Mac & Cheese (no chicken or broccoli today) the best food on Earth.  Yeah, that will make you smile.

Frozen "Easter Egg" - Rapunzel & Flynn Visit Arendelle

Now something to make all of you smile!  You may or may not be aware that Pixar is kind of famous for “Easter Eggs” in their movies – a character or item from one will end in another in a really small way.  Disney does it, too, like when Rapunzel and Flynn show up in Frozen (see above!).
