This is movie I saw all over the place during D23Expo weekend. I can understand why with stars like Oprah Winfrey, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Michael Peña, Levi Miller, Deric McCabe, André Holland and Rowan Blanchard, with Zach Galifianakis this is sure to be a box office record maker! Based on the book written by Madeleine L’Engle and a screenplay by Jennifer Lee excited doesn’t really cover how I’m feeling about waiting another 8 months to see this on the big screen!

The three celestial beings, Mrs. Whatsit (Reese Witherspoon), Mrs. Who (Mindy Kaling) and Mrs. Which (Oprah Winfrey) in Disney’s A WRINKLE IN TIME, an epic adventure directed by Ava DuVernay and bsed on Madeleine L’Engle’s timeless classic which takes audiences across dimensioins of time and space, examining the nature of darkness versus light and ultimately, the triumph of love.



The Nutcracker And The Four Realms

In Theaters November 2nd, 2018

I’ve seen the Nutcracker almost too many times to count BUT seeing anything Disney – find is like seeing it again for the first time. So I’m still super excited to see this and how Disney will give it that extra bit of magic!

ANAHEIM, CA – JULY 15: Dancer Lil Buck of THE NUTCRACKER AND THE FOUR REALMS took part today in the Walt Disney Studios live action presentation at Disney’s D23 EXPO 2017 in Anaheim, Calif. THE NUTCRACKER AND THE FOUR REALMS will be released in U.S. theaters on November 2, 2018. (Photo by Jesse Grant/Getty Images for Disney) *** Local Caption *** Lil Buck

As described by Sean Bailey . . . “The Mouse King is made up of thousands of mice—a cutting-edge CG creation. But we wanted him to move in a way that would be wonderfully surprising and incredibly cool, so we called on Lil Buck to provide the style of dance that defines the character. He is so talented and the way he makes this character move is unbelievable.”

Pssst! Did I mention The Nutcracker And The Four Realms will also include a Special Performance by Ballerina Misty Copeland !?!? Yeah. That Too!! So I think we all need to mark this down as a Must See – what do you think?


Mary Poppins Returns

#MaryPoppinsReturns In Theaters December 28th, 2018

Mary Poppins (Emily Blunt) returns to the Banks home after many years and uses her magical skills to help the now grown up Michael and Jane rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives in MARY POPPINS RETURNS, directed by Rob Marshall.

She’s Back . . . and I’m like a Kiddie on Christmas Eve waiting to open that first gift!! Mary Poppins was the movie I watched over and over and wait for it – over again as a kid. I had it on VHS and I bought the DVD and I still watch it all the time. I know every song and even how to spell Super-Cali-Fragi-Listic-Expi-Ali-Docious – yup! I worked on that forever when I was a kid – it was before Google so that wasn’t easy!

Live Action Remakes

We all know Live Action Remakes have become the next big thing. From as early as 101 Dalmatians (1996) to as recent as Cinderella (2015) and Beauty& The Beast (2017) Disney has become a master at bringing our favorite animated classics to the screen in a brand new way! Well it looks like they aren’t even close to done. Here’s what’s in story for us now as Disney’s latest Live Action Remakes . . .


#Dumbo In Theaters March 29th, 2019

GOTTA FLY – Visionary filmmaker Tim Burton helms the live-action reimagining of Disney’s 1941 animated classic “Dumbo.” “’Dumbo’ was always one of my favorite Disney films,” said Burton. “We’re trying to give it the same heart, feeling and emotion that we all loved about the original.” Starring Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito, Eva Green, Nico Parker and Finley Hobbins, “Dumbo” is currently in production in England. © 2017 Disney Enterprises, Inc.

The Lion King

#TheLionKing In Theaters July 19th, 2019

I think my oldest is going to be the most excited about this one. He is almost 21 but I know that The Lion King is one of his all time favorite Disney movies. I can’t wait to share this with him and my younger Kiddies. It’s going to make for the perfect Family Movie Night!

ANAHEIM, CA – JULY 15: Director Jon Favreau of THE LION KING took part today in the Walt Disney Studios live action presentation at Disney’s D23 EXPO 2017 in Anaheim, Calif. THE LION KING will be released in U.S. theaters on July 19, 2019. (Photo by Jesse Grant/Getty Images for Disney) *** Local Caption *** Jon Favreau

Director Jon Favreau is determined to bring all that makes The Lion King a Disney Classic to the screen as he transforms it from animated to live action and I for one can’t wait.

Still In The Works

Here are a few films that are so early in production they don’t even have any images yet..but that doesn’t mean I can’t share them with you!

MULAN | #Mulan

This is added to the list of live-action remakes based on the original 1998 feature with Niki Caro set to star.

JUNGLE CRUISE | #JungleCruise

Here’s a live-action nod to ta theme park ride instead of a movie with Dwayne Johnson set to be a part of the starring roles I have a feeling this will be a movie we all want to see.

ALADDIN | #Aladdin

Directed by Guy Ritchie, with Mena Massoud as Aladdin, Naomi Scott as Jasmine and Will Smith as the Genie I can’t wait to find out when this movie is set to hit theaters so I can be first in line!
