Over the past few weeks, we’ve been enjoying watching Thor: The Dark World Blu-ray/DVD combo pack. I was excited when I found out that we’d be receiving a screener copy of the disc; you may remember that I actually had the honor of walking the Thor: The Dark World red carpet and watching the film at the premier, so I was chomping at the bit for the chance to see it again.

I also was excited that everyone was going to finally get to see the movie I’d been raving about for months.  Not everyone had the opportunity to catch it in theaters, so nearly literally as soon as I carried it in the door everyone was asking when we were going to watch it.  I was anxious for them to see it and share their thoughts (and I was anxious to see Tom Hiddleston again), so I popped it in the Blu-ray player and we all sat down to watch.

At the start of 2013 I shared with you my favorite Disney movies of 2012.  There were so many great new additions this past year that I wanted to share a 2013 Disney movies roundup with you.  All of these movies – listed in chronological order – are can’t-miss and if you didn’t catch them at the theater or pick up DVD copies yet, you should plan to for this year.

A visually stunning movie, Oz the Great and Powerful provides you with information about the world of Oz with which you might not previously have been familiar.  The movie is more for adults than kids, but there are plenty of kid-friendly tie-ins for the movie, like the Oz Fashion Dolls.  And don’t forget to check out my post with Oz Party Ideas – I think an “Over the Rainbow” theme would be an awesome way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, too!

I received a review copy of Iron Man & Hulk Heroes United in order to facilitate my review.  All words and opinions are my own.

While I was in L.A. for the #ThorDarkWorldEvent and #DeliveryManEvent one of the places I had the extreme pleasure to visit was Walt Disney Studios.  While there we caught a sneak peek of Marvel’s new Iron Man & Hulk Heroes United.  We also had the chance to chat with Executive Producer Jeph Loeb.

He was extremely excited to introduce us to Marvel Animation Studios’ first feature-length, direct-to-video adventure.  It’s also marks the historic first occasion of having completely utilizing computer generated technology to create a super hero adventure.  The use of this CG animation results in a stunning and vibrant new addition to the animated Marvel University.

Thank you to Disney/Marvel for covering my expenses so I could participate in the Tom Hiddleston interview. All words and opinions are my own.

I have to say that one of the highlights for me of our trip to L.A. was the round-table interviews.  It’s a great opportunity to see what the person behind some of your favorite characters is actually like.  And in this case, that person was Tom Hiddleston and the character was Loki.

Let me just start by saying that Tom Hiddleston is amazing.  From the moment he walked in, to the moment he walked out, he was charismatic and engaging.  He was also extremely funny.  In fact, as he sat down at the table in front of the room to introduce himself at the Thor: The Dark World bad guy Loki, he said “…um, I feel like I should be sitting here with a white cat and stroking it.” Continue reading »
