Disney unveils first poster for The BFG, directed by Steven Spielberg!!!

  From the creators of E.T. and the author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Matilda comes THE BFG! 

 The BFG (Mark Rylance), while a giant himself, is a Big Friendly Giant and nothing like the other inhabitants of Giant Country. Standing 24-feet tall with enormous ears and a keen sense of smell, he is endearingly dim-witted and keeps to himself for the most part. Giants like Bloodbottler (Bill Hader) and Fleshlumpeater (Jemaine Clement) on the other hand, are twice as big and at least twice as scary and have been known to eat humans, while the BFG prefers Snozzcumber and Frobscottle. Upon her arrival in Giant Country, Sophie, a precocious 10-year-old girl from London, is initially frightened of the mysterious giant who has brought her to his cave, but soon comes to realize that the BFG is actually quite gentle and charming, and, having never met a giant before, has many questions. The BFG brings Sophie to Dream Country where he collects dreams and sends them to children, teaching her all about the magic and mystery of dreams.

Disney’s MOANA Finds Her Voice!!!

moanaheader

Oh my! this coming year is shaping up to be quite a movie year! And one of the film I am expecting the most is Moana! And it seems they just found the perfect voice for this gorgeous new adventurous girl.

moana

Walt Disney Animation Studios’ MOANA has found her voice following a worldwide search to cast the film’s title character. Native Hawaiian newcomer Auli’i Cravalho, 14, joins Dwayne Johnson in the big-screen adventure about a spirited and fearless teenager named Moana (voice of Cravalho) who, with help from demi-god Maui (voice of Johnson), sets out on a daring mission to prove herself a master wayfinder. Check out this awesome video where Auli’i finds out that she got the part!

ABOUT THE MOVIE

Three thousand years ago, the greatest sailors in the world voyaged across the vast South Pacific, discovering the many islands of Oceania. But then, for a millennium, their voyages stopped – and no one today knows why. From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes “Moana,” a sweeping, CG-animated adventure about a spirited teenager who sails out on a daring mission to prove herself a master wayfinder and fulfill her ancestors’ unfinished quest. During her journey, Moana (voice of Auli’i Cravalho) meets the once-mighty demi-god Maui (voice of Dwayne Johnson), and together, they traverse the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous fiery creatures and impossible odds. Directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker (“The Little Mermaid,” “Aladdin,” “The Princess & the Frog”), and produced by Osnat Shurer (“Lifted,” “One Man Band”), “Moana” sails into U.S. theaters on Nov. 23, 2016.

Khan Academy Launches Pixar in a Box, a Behind-the-Scenes Look at Pixar Animation Studios’ Creative Process!

khanacademy

Khan Academy launches Pixar in a Box, a behind-the-scenes look at Pixar Animation Studios’ creative processFree online curriculum shows how Pixar filmmakers use science, technology, engineering, art and math to create movie magic 

“Our mission at Khan Academy is a free, world-class education for anyone, anywhere,” said Sal Khan, Founder and CEO of the not-for-profit Khan Academy. “Sparking student interest in math and other academic fields is a key part of that, and we’re delighted to collaborate with Pixar to achieve this goal. Pixar in a Box gives students a new way to engage with key academic concepts and see how creative these concepts can be.”

“For years, we’ve heard from teachers at every grade level interested in creating animation-based curricula,” said Elyse Klaidman, Director, Pixar University and Archives.  “We’ve wanted to provide free online resources for them, and Pixar in a Box makes that dream a reality. We hope that it not only gives students a behind-the-scenes look at how our movies are made but also gets them excited about STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) concepts.”

Khan and Catmull officially unveiled Pixar in a Box at a special event yesterday evening on the Pixar campus in Emeryville, CA. After an introduction from Klaidman, local educators learned the story behind the project and then received a live demonstration of Pixar in a Box from two of its creators – Brit Cruise, Content Producer at Khan Academy, and Tony DeRose, Senior Scientist and Research Group Lead at Pixar. The evening concluded with a question-and-answer session moderated by Klaidman.

“Many students start to lose interest in academics in middle and high school, partly because they don’t see how academic concepts relate to things they care about,” said DeRose. “Pixar in a Box aims to address this disconnect by showing how Pixar filmmakers use these concepts for creative benefit in their everyday work.”

Starting today, students can access Pixar in a Box and learn:

  • How combinatorics are used to create crowds, like the swarm of robots in WALLŸ
  • How parabolas are used to model environments, like the forest in Brave.
  • How weighted averages are used to create characters, like Buzz Lightyear and Woody.
  • How linear and cubic interpolation are used to animate characters.
  • How trigonometry is used to create the worlds in which Pixar stories take place.
  • How simultaneous equations are used to paint all of Pixar’s images.

“These lessons are the first phase of the project,” said Cruise. “While the first year focuses on math, future Pixar in a Box lessons will explore science, computer science, arts, and humanities.”

All Pixar in a Box resources are available free of charge at PixarInABox.org. The site will be updated as additional lessons become available.

I’m going to Disney OTR Social Media Moms Celebration!

Disney-OTR-2014-going

I was surprised by an email from Disney, to one of the most amazing (if you’re a Disney fan) events … the Disney OTR Social Media Moms Celebration!

I kind of looked at it in shock for a few seconds, then quickly (and with very shaky hands) called my husband. He didn’t answer and I had to call him like 5 more times! When he finally answered he was super excited for me! He know how much I wanted to go.

Then the shock kinda wore off and i decided to double and triple check and make sure I didn’t misread the email. Yes! I really did receive an invite!

What is the Disney OTR Social Media Moms Celebration you ask?

Disney Social Media Moms Celebration On-the-Road is going coast to coast in June 2015, spreading tons of pixie dust along the way. From dynamic speakers and interactive sessions to behind-the-scenes info straight from Disney Parks, its no wonder that previous attendees have come from all over to experience the unique magic of Disney Social Media Moms Celebration On-the-Road.”

I’m looking forward to learning something new and meeting people with similar interests. And there are always surprises when Disney is involved!  Follow me on twitter or Instagram for more updates. Look for #DisneySMMC to check out everyone’s photos and updates.
