In case you don’t follow me on Twitter or Instagram (what are you waiting for?) you might not have heard that I was invited to attend the #MaleficentEvent and #FireandRescueEvent this Monday, May 19th – Wednesday, May 21st! Yes, I am still in a little disbelief that I will be heading to LA once again to attend an amazing Disney event! I will attend the press junket of MALEFICENT (opening in theatres on 5/30) where I will interview cast and filmmakers from the movie! Who we will be interview is yet to be determined, but I would love to meet Maleficent herself. I have a unique connection to Angelina Jolie, my niece and nephew were adopted from the same exact orphanage as her daughter. I feel a little bit of a connection to anyone who has adopted from Addis Ababa.
Check out this featurette… I dare you not to get excited to see it:
While I am in LA I will also attend a special press day at Disney Toon Studios for PLANES: FIRE & RESCUE. The first PLANES was my son’s first theatre movie and he absolutely fell in love with it. I think we have watched it every weekend since it came out on DVD last year. I will be so excited to show him my voice over and pictures of my interview with Julie Bowen (voice of “Dipper).
In addition to screening these two movies and attending a press junket for both, I will also be learning more about all the toys and merchandise surrounding the films. I can’t wait to share everything I learn with you! Both of these are going to be huge summer movies!
Maleficent will hit theaters May 30th. Planes Fire and Rescue will fly into theaters July 18th.
