Can you believe that it is 2016 already? You know when I started my blog my first post was a Disney post for Brave. So it is only fitting that my first post in 2016 be a disney post. Did you notice I was gone? I took almost a whole month off and boy did it feel good. I was able to recharge and think about my blog goals. I even found my old passion for creating. It was a good time off and I am so happy that I got to enjoy my family.
I even got a new look. What do you think? I wanted to go back to simple. Omg, those super heavy themes were stressing me out. So I went back to a simple, light theme. I really like it and I am in love with my new header. My favorite things, food and disney. The pic of me is from my first Disney event! The Muppets red carpet. One of my best memories!
When I started checking emails I found that Disney had released some AMAZING news while I was gone. Including their 2016 Movie release list but I will save that for another post. I have a lot to tell you, so let’s get ready to rock Disney.
Disney News Digest
The Jungle Book
You guys know that I am not one for saying I love something just to say it because I post for a certain company. So, I am going to be honest and say that I really did not like The Jungle Book. It was okay, but not my favorite nor one that I will watch. However, after seeing the trailer for The Jungle Book live action movie I may change my mind. It looks really good and who knows, maybe I will become a Jungle Book fan.
Directed by Jon Favreau (“Iron Man”), based on Rudyard Kipling’s timeless stories and inspired by Disney’s classic animated film, “The Jungle Book” is an all-new live-action epic adventure about Mowgli (newcomer Neel Sethi), a man-cub who’s been raised by a family of wolves. But Mowgli finds he is no longer welcome in the jungle when fearsome tiger Shere Khan (voice of Idris Elba), who bears the scars of Man, promises to eliminate what he sees as a threat. Urged to abandon the only home he’s ever known, Mowgli embarks on a captivating journey of self-discovery, guided by panther-turned-stern mentor Bagheera (voice of Ben Kingsley), and the free-spirited bear Baloo (voice of Bill Murray). Along the way, Mowgli encounters jungle creatures who don’t exactly have his best interests at heart, including Kaa (voice of Scarlett Johansson), a python whose seductive voice and gaze hypnotizes the man-cub, and the smooth-talking King Louie (voice of Christopher Walken), who tries to coerce Mowgli into giving up the secret to the elusive and deadly red flower: fire. The all-star cast also includes Lupita Nyong’o as the voice of the fiercely protective mother wolf Raksha, and Giancarlo Esposito as the voice of wolf pack’s alpha male Akela. “The Jungle Book” seamlessly blends live-action with photorealistic CGI animals and environments, using up-to-the-minute technology and storytelling techniques to immerse audiences in an enchanting and lush world. The wild adventure swings into theaters in 3D on April 15, 2016.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens became the highest grossing domestic film of all time!
Umm, did this really shock anyone? The girls and I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this movie. If you haven’t seen it (how is that possible?) then you better run! You won’t be disappointed!
Zootopia- New Trailer!!
I can’t begin to tell you how much I am looking forward to this movie! I think the concept is awesome and it looks like it is going to be really cute!
The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it’s a melting pot where animals from every environment live together—a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything. But when rookie Officer Judy Hopps (voice of Ginnifer Goodwin) arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn’t so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde (voice of Jason Bateman), to solve the mystery. Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Zootopia,” a comedy-adventure directed by Byron Howard (“Tangled,” “Bolt”) and Rich Moore (“Wreck-It Ralph,” “The Simpsons”) and co-directed by Jared Bush (“Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero”), opens in theaters on March 4, 2016.
