This Christmas the beloved story, The Nutcracker will come to life in an all new way. This certainly looks like it will have some incredible costumes. It will be interesting to see this interpretation of the story. You can see the trailer here.
About the movie:
All Clara (Mackenzie Foy) wants is a key – a one-of-a-kind key that will unlock a box that holds a priceless gift. A golden thread, presented to her at godfather Drosselmeyer’s (Morgan Freeman) annual holiday party, leads her to the coveted key—which promptly disappears into a strange and mysterious parallel world. It’s there that Clara encounters a soldier named Phillip (Jayden Fowora-Knight), a gang of mice and the regents who preside over three Realms: Land of Snowflakes, Land of Flowers and Land of Sweets. Clara and Phillip must brave the ominous Fourth Realm, home to the tyrant Mother Ginger (Helen Mirren), to retrieve Clara’s key and hopefully return harmony to the unstable world. Starring Keira Knightley as the Sugar Plum Fairy, Disney’s new holiday feature film “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” is directed by Lasse Hallström and Joe Johnston, and inspired by E.T.A. Hoffmann’s classic tale.
Out of the blue there was a brand new special sneak peek of Gal Gadot’s character, Shank, in the upcoming Wreck-It Ralph Movie, Ralph Breaks the Internet. Well my Facebook wall lit up with this story and I can share it with you. I will say that there was no mention of Slaughter Race in anything I saw while at Disney Animation Studios during the #RalphBreaksTheInternetEvent. I’m kinda bummed about that and about finding this out like everyone else. I learned so much about the movie but had no idea that there was going to be this tough racing game involved. I guess I should have known some sort of race would be happening, but man, this looks epic!
Check out his new Sneak Peek!
You’ll notice in the sneak peek that there is some more of Vanellope with the Princesses. Well a photo of the Princesses went out today and that also was amazing. Everyone is talking about the princesses in their relaxed gear.
The movie, Christopher Robin, began to play in theaters last Friday. I had the privilege to speak with the main cast and also the director, Marc Forster about the movie. I’ve published my interviews with Ewan McGregor, Jim Cummings, Hayley Atwell and Bronte Carmichael earlier this week. I hope that you have enjoyed reading them and also my red carpet recap and Christopher Robin movie review. On that trip to California I was hosted by Disney to attend the Christopher Robin Premiere on the Walt Disney Studios Lot. Disney took care of my airfare and accommodations, plus meals and some small gifts. I was not paid for my participation and all opinions are my own.

What follows is my interview with Christopher Robin director, Marc Forster. It was Marc’s vision, attention to detail and careful reverence to the original works of A.A. Milne and E.H. Shepard that shaped this movie into the very special thing that it is. Not to mention the care he took in selecting the cast.

Our very first interview with the talented cast of Christopher Robin was Bronte Carmichael. She plays Christopher Robin’s daughter, Madeline Robin. Madeline is a smart and adventurous girl who dreams desperately of making her father happy enough with her so that she does not need to go to boarding school. In the movie Madeline is about the same age that Christopher was right before he went to boarding school. Madeline simply wants her father’s love and time. While Christopher certainly loves his daughter, he is just not able to give her his time. This is either due to his job or his being unable to give her what she truly needs.
On my recent trip to California I was hosted by Disney to attend the Christopher Robin Premiere on the Walt Disney Studios Lot and I was also able to interview many members of the cast. Disney took care of my airfare and accommodations, plus meals and some small gifts. I was not paid for my participation and all opinions are my own.

During my trip to LA last week Marvel Studios went and made Avengers: Infinity War available on digital with the release of the Bluray coming on August 14th. To celebrate this launch we went to Madame Tussauds in Hollywood almost directly across from the El Captain Theater where the movie premiered. There we got to explore the new Marvel Super Heroes 4D installation. We also got to make wax Infinity Gauntlets and sit down with Executive Producer of Avengers: Infinity War, Trinh Tran. She spoke with us after we took a look at a few of the special features from the upcoming Bluray. This was all part of a press trip that I took as a guest of Disney. My airfare, hotel and food were compensated. I received no money from the trip or the posts written afterward. I will include some Amazon affiliate links to the movie and other products within this post and I have edited the interview for easier reading and length.
