Check out this week’s movie news! This summer and fall is going to be full of animated awesomeness (with a little live-action fun thrown in for good measure). There are also some more free printables for you to enjoy.


Exciting Movie News: First Look at Disney's Frozen #DisneyFrozen

There’s finally a teaser trailer and first look images available from Disney’s upcoming Frozen!  I’m excited for this movie as it’s done by the studio that produced both Tangled and Wreck-It Ralph, two of my favorite more recent Disney films. Fearless optimist Anna sets off on an epic journey—teaming up with rugged mountain man Kristoff and his loyal reindeer Sven—to find her sister Elsa, whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter.

I’ve mentioned in the past that Sprout TV and PBS Kids are two stations that we, along with Bubbles, enjoy watching.  They have a number of great shows in their line up, one of which is the Super Why series.  Well, the Super Readers are setting out on a new adventure that will take them around the world and they would like you to join them!

Super Why: Around The World Adventure DVD

The Super Readers are made up of Whyatt, Princess Pea, Red Riding Hood, and Pig.  They are also joined by Woofster, their book-loving puppy pal with Dictionary Power.  We loved that Woofster is making his DVD premier, as Bubbles is currently in love with dogs.

The DVD includes three adventures: Around The World Adventure, Nalia And The Magic Map, and Jasper’s Cowboy Wish and runs for 90 minutes.  In addition to the three adorable episodes (which we’ve now watched at least three times each; Bubbles highly approves), the DVD includes a number of extras.  There are interactive games, music videos, printable activity and coloring pages (which Bubbles has also enjoyed putting her mark on), and a resource guide for parents to help encourage your budding readers.

The first two episodes will be airing on a special on-air event tomorrow, but if you don’t happen to catch them, the DVD will release on June 19th.  Right now you can pre-order it on Amazon for under $12 and it ships free with Prime or Super Saver Shipping.  And follow PBS Kids on Twitter and Facebook for future announcements, specials, and more.

I received a product in order to facilitate my review.  No additional compensation was received and all opinions, as always, are 100% that of myself and my family.
