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

Director John Lasseter works with members of his story team on Disney•Pixar’s “Toy Story 4,” a new chapter in the lives of Woody, Buzz Lightyear and the “Toy Story” gang. The film is slated for release on June 16, 2017. (Photo by Deborah Coleman / Pixar)

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!).

For all The Hunger Games fans – the first official movie poster for the upcoming The Hunger Games: Catching Fire has been released.  They also have a new Instagram account you can follow.  Currently, there’s lots of great pictures up from the Cannes Film Festival.  Aside from loving the story, we cheer for The Hunger Games movies because Jennifer Lawrence is from here in Louisville and we like to support hometown girls!

Happy Mother's Day from Monsters University

Remember what it was like leaving home to head off to college?  If you were like me, no matter how independent you thought you were, it wasn’t long before you missed your Mom!  I’m sure that even though Sully was dreaming of becoming a Scarer he, too, probably missed his Mom once he arrived at Monsters University (though being part of the OK fraternity gave him some support to get through those lonely moments).  Maybe he should have been like “Squishy” Squibbles and continue living at home with his doting mother, Ms. Squibbles.

Whatever their living situation, all the monsters want to show their appreciation for Moms everywhere.  They are sharing their sentiment through the image above.  Also be sure to watch the cute video below.  It’s all about the interactions between families.  Can anyone else relate to the “Smile!” request?
