Especially exciting is that Emmy award winning Kenny Ortega (of High School Musical fame!) is directing, producing and choreographing the movie.

Disney Dolls

Friday, July 24, 2015

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to preview fantastic new Disney items during the Disney Consumer Products Holiday Showcase in NYC.  I was thrilled to see a bunch of new doll collections front and center.

I love dolls!  I especially love Disney dolls so these beauties had my head spinning!  All I could think of is the damage that my credit cards are going to suffer when these items hit the Disney Store.

I have not even seen the movie yet, but I know that I need every one of these Descendants dolls:

Look at the hair!  LOVE!!

If you love the Animator doll collection as much as I do, you are going to freak out over this complete collection of miniatures!  They are adorable.  Even the hard to come by Kristoff is included!

These Anna & Elsa Twin Animator Dolls are going to delight all Frozen fans!

Will you be adding any of these new dolls to your collection or are there still older ones that you lust after?

Ant-Man Review

Wednesday, July 22, 2015

To be quite honest, I wasn't expecting very much from Ant-Man, the latest release from Marvel Studios. I have seen some Marvel cartoons featuring the original set of Avengers including Captain America, Iron Man, Ant-Man, Wasp, and Thor, but was never truly impressed by character's powers or personality. 

That all ended this weekend.

Without giving too much away about the film, Ant-Man seamlessly blends into the Marvel Universe without blinking an eye. The beginning of the film weaves itself early on into the Avenger storyline as we see some familiar faces arguing about a certain formula called the Pym Partical,which allows an individual to shrink to the size of an insect and potentially becoming a new version of the "Super Soldier". 

Flash forward to present day and Scott Lang, played by Paul Rudd, is leaving prison and trying to make a new life for himself. In an uncanny set of events, Scott finds himself working with Dr. Hank Pym, whom is the creator of the Pym Partical and the original Ant-Man. As the story continues, we are thrown into the exceedingly funny jabs Marvel is now known for and some thrilling action packed scenes. 

I'm really excited for what's to come in the Marvel story line as we start getting closer to the release of  Captain America: Civil War (2016). If you haven't already, check out the trailer for Ant-Man below!!

Oh and for all of those true Marvel Fans out there.....make sure to stay until after the credits...I mean all the way. There is something exciting for those who do.

Get ready for the Descendants!
