Concept Art from Disney’s INTO THE WOODS + Save 50% on the Blu-Ray!

into the woods movie coverIt seems like Disney announced it’s production of Into the Woods so long ago, but I really couldn’t wait for the Blu-Ray release!

The truth is, I can consume every fact, story and bit of trivia from so many musicals. The fact that Into the Woods is a Disney-made Sondheim musical means that I couldn’t wait to get my hands on my own copy to take in all the extras on the Into the Woods Blu-Ray and digital HD!

About Disney’s Into the Woods:

From the director of “Chicago” and the producer of “Wicked” comes a modern twist on the beloved fairy tales you thought you knew.

Academy Award®-Winning actress Meryl Streep (Best Actress, The Iron Lady), leads an all-star cast in this enchanted adventure about daring to venture Into The Woods.

Iconic characters, such as Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk and Rapunzel, find their fates intertwined with a humble baker and his wife, whose longing to have a child sends them on a quest to reverse a witch’s (Streep) curse.

With an all-star cast, this spellbinding adventure is everything you could ever wish for!

Robert Downey Jr. is offering fans the chance to live out the best night of their life culminating at the World Premiere of Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, all to support a great cause.  

In this videoRobert Downey Jr. reveals that anyone can win the opportunity to be flown with a friend to Los Angeles to experience a day in the life of Tony Stark.

By going to www.omaze.com/RDJ and donating just $10 to benefit Julia’s House, a children’s hospice center dedicated to helping improve the lives of children diagnosed with terminal illness, you could win a chance to live out your superhero dreams with RDJ in LA.

You’ll kick things off with breakfast at the iconic Randy’s Donuts before launching into an action-packed day including a helicopter ride over the Hollywood sign, indoor skydiving, and a custom gown or tux fitting before meeting Robert Downey Jr. himself for an epic motorcade arrival at the World Premiere of Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. And yes…there will be caviar.

And did we mention you’ll be one of the first people on this planet to see the newest release from Marvel’s hit franchise? Yeah, that’s happening. But the opportunity to win this once-in-a-lifetime experience won’t last forever.

ABOUT THE EXPERIENCE
You and a friend will be joining Robert Downey Jr. for the best day of your lives at the premiere of Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Flights, 4-star hotel, and transportation are all included. Best of all, every entry benefits Julia’s House.  

ABOUT JULIA’S HOUSE
Julia’s House is a children’s hospice charity dedicated to helping life-limited children and their families. The nurses and caregivers at Julia’s house provide life-changing support for parents and their children both in the hospice and in their own homes.

The majority of those children are unlikely to live beyond the age of 18, but thankfully Julia’s House is there for them year-round, offering emergency respite and overnight care during treatment and offering emotional and practical support at the end of a child’s life.

Tinker Bell and the Legend of The Neverbeast: A Parent’s Review

tinker bell and the legend of the neverbeast parent reviewAs a big, BIG Disney fan, it’s rare for me to be legitimately surprised by my reaction to any animated Disney film. I’m usually so dialed into upcoming releases, watching the trailers, seeing the posters and reading synopsis after synopsis that I already know how I’ll generally feel about the movie.

But Tinker Bell and the Legend of the Neverbeast was a different story altogether. Like past Tinker Bell movies, I knew it would be sweet, cute, funny and probably a little bit sassy.

As a parent, I also appreciated that the story would likely be wrapped up in lessons of friendship, community and helping others (Something Disney does really well!).

I was right about all that. Tinker Bell and the Legend of the Neverbeast was certainly cute and funny. There were a ton of sweet moments, and it was fairly light on the sassiness (which made me happy ☺).

In addition to the great messages it communicated about friendship and helpfulness, it also threw in a generous dose of believing in faith, trust and, well pixie dust!

But let me tell you, I didn’t expect Tinker Bell and the Legend of the Neverbeast to reel me in faster than it got to my kids! Almost a week after watching it the first time I’m still thinking about it and I want to see it again.
