In recognition of International Women’s Day, DreamWorks Animation has assembled the cast, crew and young fans of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power to remind girls around the world they have the power to achieve anything they set their mind to.
In a newly released video, the cast of She-Ra, including Aimee Carrero (Adora/She-Ra), Lauren Ash (Scorpia), Marcus Scribner (Bow), Karen Fukuhara (Glimmer), Merit Leighton (Frosta), Krystal Joy Brown (Netossa) and executive producer Noelle Stevenson open up about what She-Ra and its positive portrayals of women and girls means to them and the impact it has on the young audience who watches the show.
Led by Stevenson, She-Ra and the Princesses of Power features a wide variety of female characters brought to life by a diverse voice cast, with an all-female writers room, majority female crew, and a dedication to centering the stories of women in a way that both children and adults can relate to. The series is showing young audiences that no matter how they look or who they choose to be, they are worthy of love, respect, and a starring role in the stories they adore.
Join She-Ra in fighting the good fight – and forge a #BalanceforBetter in the world.
DreamWorks Animation has also created resources and activity sheets for parents, teachers and caregivers to utilize in reinforcing the important messages that International Women’s Day aims to spread:
“This is a story about how I died.” Well, Disney’s Tangled is a story about how Flynn Rider (also known as Eugene Fitzherbert) dies…I guess. However, it is more of an epic tale of thievery, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, and miracles! Wow, that went a little Princess Bride; but it works! Add a frying pan and a palace horse and things will get strange as the movie unfolds.
To honor Flynn Rider’s…story, I have created a cubeecraft of him to print and create. He will pair awesome with the Rapunzel Cubeecraft.
To make: 1. Cut out each item along the outer black lines. 2. Cut along the white on each tab using the Craft knife including around the hair above the face 3. Cut along each red line using the Craft knife 4. Fold along each inner solid black line and slide each tab into the slots created with a Craft knife to form a cube of the head, arms, body and feet. 5. Slide the arms through the red slots on either side of the body. 6. Slide the feet through the red slots at the base of the body. 7. Slide the the body into the red slots of the head. 8. slide the frying pan in his hand, because “Frying Pans, who knew” (optional) He is now complete Use the image above for an example of how he should look when completed.
To download this cubeecraft, right click on the image, select save image as, and save the image to your computer. Then print the cubeecraft, create, and display.
“Dogs are mostly good, but when good dogs are left alone, they might make a swimming pool in the living room of your home.” This is but one incident Farmers Insurance has seen. It is quite crazy but Farmers is quite keen. They helped in this case and they will help a lot more, Farmers Insurance will help all in galore. And on the day of March 2, their help will be extremely fun, they will celebrate Dr. Seuss’ Birthday and Read Across America Day with everyone.
To help celebrate, Farmers Insurance created, a video for all to watch and be elated. Below you will find, I’m sure you may know, a video voiced by Professor Burke, Oh, the Places You’ll Go! Simply click the play button to leave life’s cramped cages and read along With Burke as he takes you through the Dr Seuss’ Pages.
If you want to read along even more with Professor Burke Watch Farmers’ video of Seussian insurance claims as a perk From dogs flooding homes to goats ramming their own reflection Farmers helped them all with just a simple insurance inspection.
This may seem more of an ad, but the videos are fun So I shared them with you and I am not yet done. If we all head over to the Dr. Seuss Website There is fun to be had and stuff to excite With printables to download, and activities to complete There is so much to do without missing a beat So there you have it, it all has begun Because you opened this blog post, it’s time to have fun!
Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss! And Have a great Read Across America Day!

I fly over to Family Disney often to check out their new crafts, recipes, and printables. They usually have something new posted featuring the current movies or holidays the recent months will bring. I am never disappointed, and this time they released several fun ideas to make a wonderful Ralph Breaks The Internet movie party.
The DIY movie party items are wonderful crafts that can be created by most fans of Wreck it Ralph. I say most, because I often have that “Nailed it but not so nailed it” moment when it comes to most crafts. I tend to hide those monsters from the world and pray most kits have a “printable” that is simply a print and display sort of craft. Thank goodness this movie party craft kit has one! It contains a “How to” for:
Slaughter Race Cupcakes,
Vanellope, Ralph, Knowsmore, and Yesss Photo Booth Props,
and (my favorite) Disney Princess “Comfy Squad” Straw Toppers
My favorite craft is the Printable straw toppers. They are as easy as print, cut out, and tape. And when they are completed, they add a great touch to the party. Also, I love the interactions between Vanellope and the princesses: Moana, Cinderella, Pocahontas, Ariel, Mulan, and Belle.
The printable straw Toppers can be downloaded here or from Disney Family’s Movie Party Website where they also share the other craft ideas for the props, decor, and cupcakes to create a wonderful Ralph Breaks the Internet Movie Party/

SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE, a film that has grossed over $350 million in theaters worldwide to date, introduces Brooklyn teen Miles Morales, and the limitless possibilities of the Spider-Verse, where more than one can wear the iconic mask. “One of the most rewarding experiences in recent months has been to hear that children are telling their parents that they see themselves in Miles, or that they want to grow up to be like Spider-Gwen, anyone can be a hero. That’s why we made this film, and we hope that feeling of empowerment is something that both audiences young and old can take away,” say Directors Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, and Rodney Rothman.
The out-of-this-world voice cast includes Shameik Moore as Miles Morales alongside Jake Johnson (“New Girl”) as Peter B. Parker, Hailee Steinfeld (Bumblebee) as Gwen Stacy/Spider-Gwen, Mahershala Ali (Green Book) as Miles’ Uncle Aaron, Brian Tyree Henry (“Atlanta”) as Jefferson Davis, Lily Tomlin (“Grace and Frankie”) as Aunt May, Luna Lauren Velez (“How To Get Away with Murder”) as Rio Morales, Zoë Kravitz (“Big Little Lies”) as Mary Jane, John Mulaney (“Big Mouth”) as Spider-Ham, with Nicholas Cage (The Croods) as Spider-Man Noir, Kathryn Hahn (Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation) as Doc Ock and Liev Schreiber (“Ray Donovan”) as the villain Kingpin.
SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE arrives filled with engaging bonus materials that are fun for the whole family and give fans even more of the unique comic book style action that they loved in theaters with over 90 minutes of bonus content.

It actually can get weirder! Don’t miss the thrilling Alternate Universe Mode where fans can view the film in an entirely new way to discover alternate scenes, plot-lines, characters, and more with the filmmakers as their guide. Also included is The Spider-Verse Super-Fan Easter Egg Challenge, where fans are challenged to find every single Easter Egg hidden within the Spider-Verse (and there are a lot of them!). Explore the character design in the visually stunning film including specific looks at the now-iconic Spider-Ham character as well as the classic villains who inhabit the Spider-Verse. Additional special features include a celebration of the diversity in the film and the idea that anyone can wear the mask in a feature called We Are Spider-Man, a featurette called Spider-Verse: A New Dimension, where fans can hear from the artists and filmmakers who pushed the boundaries of the comic book artform to create a visual experience unlike anything done in animation before, a showcase of all the amazing fan favorite characters featured in the Spider-Verse and the actors who bring them to life, and a touching tribute to comic legends Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, who originally created the Spider-Man character.
Other bonus materials include two lyric videos featuring “Sunflower” by Post Malone and Swae Lee and “Familia” by Nicki Minaj and Anuel AA (feat. Bantu) and an All-New Original Short “Spider-Ham: Caught In a Ham.” It’s another normal day for Peter Porker, a.k.a. the Spectacular Spider-Ham, fighting bad guys and loving hot dogs, until a mysterious portal starts messing with the very fabric of his cartoon reality..
