They’re back!  Disney•Pixar’s Monsters, Inc. 3D

Disney*Pixar's Monsters, Inc 3D Hits Theaters on December 19, 2012

Monsters, Inc. has always been one of my favorite Disney•Pixar movies, so I’m very excited that they’re returning it to theaters starting December 19th.  And this time it’s in 3D!  I love that Disney has been pulling recent favorites out of the storage closet and bringing them back to the big screen.  It’s nice to be able to share them with the next generation!

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!

Disney/Pixar’s BRAVE opens in theaters today!  Are any of you planning to see it today?

A few days ago, my family and I had the opportunity to see a screening of it last week and I think you’re going to love it.  I won’t share my “official” review until next week so those of you that like to see movies opening weekend don’t run the risk of any spoiler.  But I thought I’d share a little overview, some new clips, and photos to get you ready to see it!

Disney/Pixar BRAVE's Merida

Disney/Pixar’s newest film, BRAVE, will be in theaters on June 22nd.  Fortunately you don’t have to wait until then to get a taste of Scotland!  Try one of the two new BRAVE-inspired recipes below!  Click the image to download them for printing.  I think we’re going to give the Scotch Egg a try this weekend.

Disney/Pixar's BRAVE Recipes

BRAVE is the story of Merida, the headstrong daughter of King Fergus and Queen Elinor.  Merida challenges tradition in an effort to carve her own path in life.  This causes unexpected anger and chaos – including a curse! – in the kingdom, located in the Highlands of Scotland.  Merida will need to use all her skills and discover the meaning of true bravery in order to set things right.

Disney’s The Secret World of Arrietty released on DVD today.  To celebrate I have a packet of fun activities and coloring sheets to share with you from Disney.  You can download them for free here.

The Secret World of Arrietty

The Secret World of Arrietty (AIR-ee-ett-ee) is based on the children’s book series The Borrowers. It’s the story of Arrietty, a tiny 14-year old who lives hidden with her parents in the recesses of a suburban garden home.  Her family generally keeps to themselves except for when Arrietty sneaks out of the floorboards to “borrow” scrap supplies like sugar cubes from her human hosts.  One evening, a young human boy named Shawn finds Arrietty and her family and a secret friendship blossoms.  If discovered, however, their relationship could drive the little family from the home and straight into danger.

I didn’t have the opportunity to see this in theaters, so I’m looking forward to picking up a copy this weekend to add to my Disney DVD/Blu-Ray library. If you already saw it, what are your thoughts?
