U.S. Release Date:                      June 19, 2015

Voice Cast:                                    Amy Poehler, Bill Hader, Lewis Black, Mindy Kaling, Phyllis Smith, Diane Lane, Kyle MacLachlan, Kaitlyn Dias

Director:                                        Pete Docter

From an adventurous balloon ride above the clouds to a monster-filled metropolis, Academy Award®-winning director Pete Docter (“Monsters, Inc.,” “Up”) has taken audiences to unique and imaginative places. In Disney•Pixar’s original movie “ Inside Out,” he will take us to the most extraordinary location of all—inside the mind.

Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it’s no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley’s main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.

Notes:

·       Director Pete Docter is the Academy Award®-winning director of “Up.” He made his directorial debut with Disney•Pixar‘s smash hit “Monsters, Inc.,” which was nominated for an Academy Award for best animated feature film. Along with John Lasseter and Andrew Stanton, Docter developed the story and characters for “Toy Story,” Pixar‘s first full-length feature film, for which he also served as supervising animator. He served as a storyboard artist on “A Bug’s Life” and wrote the initial story treatment for “Toy Story 2.” As one of Pixar Animation Studios’ key creative contributors, Docter garnered an Academy Award nomination for his original story credit on Disney•Pixar’s Golden Globe®- and Oscar®-winning “WALL•E.”

·       Jonas Rivera produced the Academy Award®-winning “Up,” for which he was nominated for best picture. Prior to “Up,” he had worked on nearly every Pixar film since joining Pixar Animation Studios in 1994, beginning with “Toy Story” for which he served as production office assistant. His subsequent credits include “A Bug’s Life” (as art department coordinator), “Toy Story 2” (as a marketing and creative resources coordinator), “Monsters, Inc.” (as art department manager) and the Golden Globe®-winning “Cars” (as production manager).

Life is an adventure for Maya, the clever and resourceful blonde-bobbed monkey in “Monkey Kingdom,” Disneynature’s new feature film set among ancient ruins in the storied jungles of South Asia. Maya’s world is forever changed when she welcomes her son, Kip, into her complicated extended family. Like all families, Maya’s has more than its share of colorful personalities—and she’s determined to give her son a leg up in the world. When their longtime home at Castle Rock is taken over by powerful neighboring monkeys, Maya’s whole family retreats, and she uses her street smarts and ingenuity to uncover untapped resources amidst strange new creatures and unsettling surroundings.

Cinderella Movie Review

Cinderella Movie Review

image002 (3)

Okay. So I have a confession. I am an unapologetic Disney fangirl. I always have been. I was 100% your typical Disney princess loving girl growing up…except I didn’t like Cinderella. I LOVED every other princess. Ariel has a tail and could sing her head off. I spent the entire summer in the swimming pool after seeing that movie. Belle loved to read and looked a lot like me, so naturally I gravitated toward her. Plus I thought the beast was kind of cute, and my dad liked to watch it with me and would sing along. Mulan kicked butt and made me join karate (I quit like three weeks in, but it’s the thought that counts…). Jasmine wore the coolest outfits and had a pet tiger, I mean COME ON. And Pocahontas ran around bare foot all the time (maybe that’s where I got the idea from).

image007 (3)

But Cinderella, in the humble opinion of my 5-year-old self was just kind of, well, eh.  Nothing special, a little boring, I always fell asleep half way through. I remember watching the straight to VHS sequel a few times, because I found that one way more exciting than the original. But nothing really ever swayed me, I wasn’t a fan. This movie changed my entire perspective on Cinderella, and I now appreciate and have come to love her in a whole new way.

Cinderella_2015_20

“Where there is kindness, there is goodness, and where there is goodness, there is magic”

That quote embodies the story behind this retelling of the classic. There is a real positive and uplifting message sewn into every crack and crevice of this story. From start to finish. Cinderella becomes so much more than a pretty girl in a sparkling dress, and her prince finally have some…brains to him. The characters in this adaption are SO much more filled out than ever before. I actually cried when Cinderella’s mom died, and then again when her father passes. I think this speaks to the nature of the way they were portrayed. More people, less placeholders so the story could move on without them.  This is a movie lover’s movie, filled with dazzling costumes, sets, and actors to match. I can only imagine that Disney himself would have been exceedingly proud of this film.

vogue-a-cinderella-story-051

            Lets talk costumes quick, because I totally need to geek out about them. I want to marry whoever worked on the team for this movie, or at least have them around when I get married. Every-single-outfit was jaw dropping. Stepmother? Sinister and full of harsh edges, colors, designs. Stepsisters? Off the wall, just one step too far from cute to actually be cute, hurt your eyes a little bit bold. And our lovely Cinderella? Soft, elegant, and absolutely classic. I read that the ballgown used over 200 yards of fabric, and 10,000 Swarovski crystals. That’s insane, the dress did not disappoint. There was not a single button missing from these garments.

Cinderella-Movie-Wallpapers-2015-HD-Free-Download-05

            The story line stay pretty close to the original, like I mentioned though, with the added screen time the filmmakers were able to flesh out the bits that were usually left untouched. It gives you a chance to feel a real connection with her mother and father, and yes, even her ugly stepmother and sisters. It still keeps it light heartedness, while managing to feel more realistic than previous adaptions (Or as realistic as Disney Princess can be). Also this Prince is a million times better than the original. A MILLION TIMES. He’s handsome, he’s kind, and he has actual feelings and intentions rather than just acting on a weird impulse. I liked, no, I loved him. I love the whole cast to be honest, and I think you will too.

ella-and-the-prince-in-cinderella-2015-movie-wallpaper_1660098631

            Like I mentioned before, this Cinderella has a real meaning to it than I felt the original animated feature greatly lacked. And the best part? It didn’t feel forced or fake at any point. Was this just killer screenplay writing? A great director? Actors and actress who really knew what they were doing? Honestly I have no idea. But all the elements really come together to create cohesive vision, and story, that young girls can really look up to. There’s something so simple and beautiful, that I can’t seem to put my finger on. Whatever it is, it really works. Take your kids, take your spouse, take your next-door neighbors nieces if you must. It’s worth it, I promise

#InsideOutEvent I'm going to Pixar! Join me on my Inside Out Journey #InsideOutEvent #MonkeyKingdom #Waltagram

Emotions can be a funny thing.  Most of the time mine are “in control” and pretty much “normal” – for me that is :)  Then something can happen and all that can change.  I was having a pretty rough week and my emotions seemed to be on an ever changing roller coaster.  My emotions turned to excitement when I received an email that read, “We would like to invite you to a very special Disney and Pixar hosted event this spring!” Pixar! I’ve never been there and I am incredibly excited!

Inside Out I'm going to Pixar! Join me on my Inside Out Journey #InsideOutEvent #MonkeyKingdom #Waltagram

Did you ever think about your emotions as little voices inside your head?  That’s what Inside Out is all about!  Check out the trailer:

Let me share with you some of the amazingness of this trip!

I’ll be staying in San Francisco, attending a reception at Pixar with footage from INSIDE OUT (opening in theatres on 6/19), and a screening of the short film LAVA.

I’ll also be attending a press day at Pixar for INSIDE OUT including interviews with Director Pete Docter, Producer Jonas Rivera, animators and a tour of Pixar. I will also screen the upcoming Disneynature film MONKEY KINGDOM (opening in theatres on 4/17)!

And if that’s not enough, I’ll be touring The Walt Disney Family Museum!

Of course I’ll be sharing all of this with you.  You can follow me on Twitter and Instagram.  I’ll be using hashtags #InsideOutEvent, #MonkeyKingdom, and #Waltagram.

It is the fifth highest grossing film of all time and the highest grossing animated film earning more than $1.27 billion globally. Released wide domestically on Nov. 27, 2013, “Frozen” posted the No. 1 industry all-time Thanksgiving debut and Walt Disney Animation Studios’ biggest opening ever. The digital and Blu-ray/DVD release was one of the biggest home-entertainment successes of the last decade.

·         Director Chris Buck (“Frozen”) helmed the 1999 Disney classic “Tarzan” (with Kevin Lima) as well as the 2007 Oscar®-nominated “Surf’s Up” (with Ash Brannon). His animation credits also include 1989’s “The Little Mermaid,” “The Rescuers Down Under” (1990) and “Pocahontas” (1995).

·         Director Jennifer Lee (“Frozen”) is one of the screenplay writers of 2012’s arcade-hopping comedy adventure “Wreck-It Ralph.” Her screen adaptation of John Steinbeck’s “The Acts of King Arthur and His Noble Knights” is being produced by Troika Pictures. She has an original screenplay in development with Leonardo DiCaprio’s Appian Way, and her original script “Lucid Dreams” was optioned by Wolfgang Peterson’s Radiant Productions.

·         Producer Peter Del Vecho’s (“Frozen”) credits as producer include 2011’s “Winnie the Pooh” and 2009’s “The Princess and the Frog.” He served as associate producer for “Chicken Little” and “Treasure Planet.”

·         Producer Aimee Scribner served as associate producer for Disney’s Oscar®-winning “Frozen” and 2011’s “Tangled.” She produced the 2012 short “Tangled Ever After.”

·         Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez wrote the original songs for “Frozen,” including the Oscar®-winning song “Let It Go.” The “Frozen” soundtrack is Billboard’s top-selling album of 2014 and spent 33 weeks in the top 5 on the Billboard 200 chart, including 13 weeks at No. 1. It is certified triple Platinum, selling more than 3.9 million units. The “Let It Go” film clip from “Frozen” has been viewed more than 370 million times on YouTube. Anderson-Lopez made her off-Broadway debut at Primary Stages with “In Transit,” a musical performed entirely without accompaniment, inspired by the rhythms and sounds of life on the subway. Lopez is the Tony®-, Grammy®-, and Emmy®- winning co-creator of the worldwide smash hit Broadway musicals “Avenue Q” and “The Book of Mormon.” Together with his wife and collaborator, he co-wrote songs for the feature film “Winnie the Pooh” and “Finding Nemo: The Musical,” a beloved fixture at in Disney’s Animal Kingdom since 2006. Their next project for stage is an original musical called “Up Here,” which will be featured in the La Jolla Playhouse’s 2015-16 season.
