    DAWN OF THE CROODS Season 3 Premiers Tomorrow on Netflix!

    “Is there something going on that I am oblivious too?” Nope, because The Croods are back in an all new season of Dawn of the Croods and it will premier tomorrow (April 7) on Netflix!

    I am sure many of us are wondering, “What has happened to the Croods?” after we were left on a cliffhanger where the Croods family was eaten by a Tyrannaconda. Don’t worry, in the season 3 premier, the Croods are back with one goal in mind, to defeat the Broods and save Ahhh! Valley. However, once that task is done, the real trouble begins: Grug is appointed as history’s first leader.

    Season 3 will take us viewers on an epic not-so-historical journey as we watch Grug attempt to keep his valley running smoothly and defend it against enormous super-predators. And let’s not forget, the Broods are still lurking about, so the Croods will also have to continue to defend Ahhh! Valley against those evil doers. However, Thunk’s new love interest may make the Brood-Crood war a little more complicated.



    Dawn of the Croods Season 3 also introduces many more historic “firsts” to the Croods’ world, including gossip, golf, and “quicktogramming,” a Croodacious version of a social network that leads Eep to her future love interest, Guy – even if she doesn’t know it. In the cliffhanger season finale, Grug is forced to go on the lam when he’s accused of stealing food – but the culprit is actually Gurg, his evil doppelganger. All-new episodes of Dawn of the Croods, coming to Netflix, tomorrow April 7th!

    Check out the special clip below and get ready to go prehistoric with the Croods tomorrow.

    Eep has to act fast as she and her crush get chased by a Big Chikuna! Can she escape in time to finally get her first kiss? Catch up with these love bugs in all-new episodes of Dawn of the Croods, coming to Netflix April 7!

    Carrie Fisher Will Join the Disney Legends

    On July 14 in Anaheim, CA at the D23 Expo, nine new Disney Legends will be honored at a Special 30th Anniversary Awards Ceremony Hosted by Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger. While I say congratulations to all the honorees, there are three people that stand out the most in my mind. These three amazing actors/writers, I believe, deserve this honor immensely.

    The first is Stan Lee. Comic books and super heroes just wouldn’t have had the flare they have today without Stan Lee. As an avid comic book reader, I am very happy to see that Stan has become a Disney Legend.

    The second is Mark Hamill. Let’s face it, he will always be Luke Skywalker to me, and weirdly enough, The Joker and The Trickster. From the Light side of the Force to the dark forces of villainy, Mark Hamill has the skills to truly become the characters he portrays and capture the hearts of the viewers.

    Last, but certainly not least, is Carrie Fisher. Her death rattled the Star Wars fans across the globe. I know my heart shattered when I learned that she would forever become a force ghost. She was awesome as Leia in Star Wars, hilarious on the screen, and advocated to help women respect themselves on and off screen. She is and was an inspiration.

    Granted, the other 6 people receiving the Disney Legends honor deserve it, but I have to admit, my eyes and ears will be tuned into the people who have touched my life through their films and art. Congratulations to all, especially Fisher, Hamill and Lee!

    Read more about the Expo below.

    BURBANK, Calif. (April 6, 2017) – Oprah Winfrey, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Stan Lee, Julie Taymor, and other remarkable contributors to the Disney legacy will be honored as official Disney Legends during D23 Expo 2017. Hosted by Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger, the Disney Legends Award ceremony will be held at 10 a.m. on Friday, July 14, in Hall D23 of the Anaheim Convention Center.

    This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Disney Legends Awards. The first Disney Legend was Fred MacMurray (The Shaggy Dog, The Absent-Minded Professor, The Happiest Millionaire), who was honored in 1987.

    “The Disney Legends Award is the highest honor our company can bestow on an individual, reserved for those few who have truly made an indelible mark on the history of The Walt Disney Company,” said Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger. “It’s a celebration of talent, a recognition of achievement, and an expression of gratitude to the men and women whose work has significantly contributed to Disney’s enduring reputation for creative excellence.”

    The awards ceremony is just one of the dozens of spectacular events that Disney fans can enjoy during the three-day D23 Expo.

    The 2017 Disney Legends Award honorees (listed alphabetically) are:

    CARRIE FISHER became an overnight sensation in 1977 with her iconic performance as Princess Leia in Star Wars. But throughout her career, Carrie took on many roles—as an actress, author, playwright, screenwriter, and outspoken advocate for mental health awareness. For Disney, Carrie appeared in Scream 3 (2000) and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (2001) for Dimension Films, and, in 2015, she returned to the role that made her famous, starring as General Leia Organa in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. She reprised the role for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which will be released in December.

    CLYDE “GERRY” GERONIMI joined the Disney Studio in 1931. His first assignments as an animator were for several memorable Mickey Mouse, Silly Symphony, and Pluto cartoons, and he eventually contributed to more than 50 of the Studio’s shorts. Gerry made the leap to sequence director with 1943’s Victory Through Air Power, and he subsequently contributed to The Three Caballeros, The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad, Cinderella, Peter Pan, and One Hundred and One Dalmatians. He also directed segments for television’s Mickey Mouse Club and contributed to episodes of Walt Disney’s Wonderful World of Color. The apex of his Disney career came when he served as supervising director for the 1959 masterpiece Sleeping Beauty.

    MANUEL GONZALES was one of 33 artists selected from thousands of applicants to join Disney in 1936. In 1938, he took over penciling duties on the Sunday Mickey Mouse comic strip from Disney Legend Floyd Gottfredson. He brought Mickey Mouse to newspapers nationwide for nearly 40 years. At its peak, his Mickey-starring comic strip appeared in 120 newspapers around the world with a collective circulation of more than 20 million readers each week. Manuel was presented a “Mousecar” award by Walt Disney in 1966.



    MARK HAMILL began his career in 1970, appearing in numerous television series guest-roles and several TV movies, including a recurring role on ABC’s General Hospital and starring in MTM’s acclaimed The Texas Wheelers. He achieved worldwide attention as Luke Skywalker in the original Star Wars trilogy, which included The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. He returned as Luke in The Force Awakens and will appear in the upcoming The Last Jedi. His stage career includes Broadway shows and the first national tour of Amadeus directed by Sir Peter Hall. A prolific voice-over actor, he has performed in countless animated television shows, feature films, documentaries, and video games. He appears on Disney’s Miles from Tomorrowland and Milo Murphy’s Law, and has also provided the voice of The Joker in the Batman animated series, a role that recently earned him a BAFTA Award.

    WAYNE JACKSON began his career as a Walt Disney Imagineer in October 1965, and in the decades that followed he would put his technical skills and know-how to great use in the development and installation of Disney attractions around the world. Originally trained in aircraft tooling, he began as a technician and machinist assigned to rebuild the shows from the 1964–65 New York World’s Fair that were slated for installation at Disneyland. Instrumental in the early development of Audio-Animatronics® technology, Wayne would go on to help bring Pirates of the Caribbean and the Haunted Mansion to Disneyland. He went on to work on the construction and installation of attractions and show systems at Walt Disney World Resort, Tokyo Disney Resort, and Disneyland Paris.

    STAN LEE got a job as an office assistant at a comic publisher in 1939 called Timely Comics—forerunner of the powerhouse we all know as Marvel. Stan made his debut with a Captain America story in 1941, and by the next year, at the age of just 18, he was promoted to editor. In 1961, Stan teamed up with Jack “King” Kirby to create the Fantastic Four and ushered in a spectacular new age of comics. Stan co-created an enormous roster of Marvel characters, including Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, the X-Men, Daredevil, and Falcon. He became Marvel’s editorial director and publisher in 1972, and eventually was named chairman emeritus. His well-known cameos in Marvel films began with 1989’s telefilm The Trial of the Incredible Hulk, and since the release of X-Men in 2000 he has appeared in nearly every Marvel film project. Outside the super-hero realm, he has even popped up as a wedding guest in Disney’s The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement.

    GARRY MARSHALL began his career in Los Angeles writing for a number of hit shows, including The Dick Van Dyke Show and The Lucy Show. But his big break came in 1970, when he produced The Odd Couple for ABC, the first of many big hits he created for the network. Beginning with Happy Days in 1974, he developed a shared universe of spinoffs including Laverne & Shirley, Mork & Mindy, and Joanie Loves Chachi. His other ABC sitcoms during these years included Angie, The New Odd Couple, and Blansky’s Beauties. Garry was also a successful movie director, with 18 films to his credit. At Disney, he made stars of two young actresses: Julia Roberts, in Pretty Woman, and Anne Hathaway in The Princess Diaries. He directed Bette Midler in Beaches, as well as in The Lottery, a short film that for years was a fixture of the Backstage Tour at the Disney-MGM Studios Theme Park. Garry was known for his acting, as well, and he appeared in Disney’s Race to Witch Mountain, Chicken Little, and as the Devil in Hocus Pocus.

    JULIE TAYMOR is a Tony®-, Emmy®-, and Grammy®-winning and Oscar®-nominated filmmaker who has changed the face of Broadway with her innovative direction. Her adaptation of The Lion King debuted in 1997, becoming the most successful stage musical of all time; 24 global productions have been seen by more than 90 million people. The show has played in more than 100 cities in 19 countries. It received 11 Tony Award nominations, earning Julie Best Director, Costume Designer, and Best Musical for the show. Her production of The Magic Flute is currently in repertory at the Metropolitan Opera in New York City. Her films include A Midsummer’s Night Dream, Titus, The Tempest, the Golden Globe-nominated Across the Universe, and the Oscar-winning Frida. Taymor is a recipient of the MacArthur “Genius” Fellowship and an inductee into the Theater Hall of Fame for Lifetime Achievement. She is currently directing M. Butterfly on Broadway, opening Fall 2017.

    OPRAH WINFREY is a renowned award-winning producer, actress, talk show host, and philanthropist. For 25 years she was the host of the award-winning talk show The Oprah Winfrey Show, which ran for 25 seasons on hundreds of stations domestically and in more than 100 countries around the world. Oprah is also an Academy Award®-nominated actress for her role in Steven Spielberg’s 1985 hit The Color Purple. In 1998, she starred in Beloved for Disney’s Touchstone Pictures, a film that she also produced. Oprah also produced and starred in ABC’s 1989 limited series The Women of Brewster Place, and would go on to produce many films for ABC, including Tuesdays with Morrie, Before Women Had Wings, and Their Eyes Were Watching God under the “Oprah Winfrey Presents” banner. She performed as Eudora in Disney’s The Princess and the Frog in 2009 and will co-star as Mrs. Which in Disney’s 2018 film A Wrinkle in Time.

    Honorees receive a two-foot-tall bronze Disney Legends sculpture that signifies the imagination, creativity, and magic they have brought to the Company. Disney Legends Award recipients will also participate in a handprint ceremony at the end of the event, and their bronzed prints will be displayed in the Disney Legends Plaza at the Company’s Burbank headquarters.

    Free Printables featuring Disney’s 2016 Pete’s Dragon

    What can logging find in a forest outside of a small town? A lot apparently when it comes to Pete and his dragon. In the Pete’s Dragon (2016) movie, Eliot and Pete find themselves on a crazy adventure when their once peaceful forest turns into a nightmare as trees are cut down near their home. Out of curiosity, Pete investigates the rather unfamiliar noise only to find himself in a heap of trouble and removed from the forest he loves. As Pete is reintroduced to the world of humans, Eliot spend his days tracking his little buddy. However, with people looking to make a fast buck, his search could be dangerous.

    While watching the film, I kept thinking, “Well this is completely different than the original.” The funny thing is, the hardest part for me to get used to was the fact that Eliot was fluffy like Falkor from The Neverending Story. However, as the film came to an end, the fluffiness was less important than the story. While it was different than the classic, it had a great tale. My family and I enjoyed it and we were very happy to see that Netflix has added it to their database.



    Thanks to Disney, Pete’s Dragon has several free printable activities the whole family can enjoy.
    Featured below are:

  • Bookmarks
