Princess Leia’s Disney Princess Papercraft

One of the coolest printables Disney offers are the Disney 3D Princess Paper Crafts available on http://inspired.disney.co.uk/crafts/. I have been collecting them as they get released. Now, much to my surprise, and then again, not to my surprise, Princess Leia has joined the Disney Princess 3D paper craft group! I was scrolling through the crafts when I came upon this little beauty. Could this be their first step in accepting Leia as an official Disney Princess? Who knows. What I do know is that I have a new awesome and epic papercraft!

Princess Leia Instructions

She is pretty easy to make as long as you have a little patience, a glue stick and a pair of scissors.
Instructions:

  1. Print the template on regular paper or cardstock. Cut out each piece with a craft knife or scissors. Do not cut along the dashed lines — this is where you will fold the paper.
  2. Line up Leia’s back with her torso and glue them together so the design is two-sided. After the glue has dried, fold the bottom part of Leia’s torso towards you along the blue dashed line. Then, fold Leia’s face away from you along the gold line across her shoulders.
  3. Take Leia’s front piece and fold along each dashed line. Make each fold away from you. Glue the G tab and F tab to the back, white side of Leia’s front.
  4. Spread glue on the H tab of Leia’s front and press it into place on the H area on Leia’s torso. Make sure her shoulders are lined up correctly.
  5. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~




    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

  6. After the glue dries, add glue to the I, J, K, and L tabs and press them into place. Hold the pieces together until the glue dries. You may need to use a pen or pencil inside the front area to position the tabs just right.
  7. Fold each of Leia’s arms and glue them so the design is two-sided. Make sure they are lined up before the glue dries. Attach the arms to each side of Leia’s Torso under each shoulder by gluing the E tab to the E area and D tab to the D area.
  8. With the printed side of the skirt facing you, glue tab A to the back of the skirt taking care to line up the edge of the skirt along the dotted line.
  9. Attach Leia’s completed torso to her skirt by gluing the white side of the tabs at her waist to the top of the skirt over the areas labeled M and N. The crease on the skirt should be in the back.

Kubo and the Two Strings poster

Kubo and the Two Strings is an epic action-adventure set in a fantastical Japan from acclaimed animation studio LAIKA. Clever, kindhearted Kubo (voiced by Art Parkinson of Game of Thrones) ekes out a humble living, telling stories to the people of his seaside town including Hosato (George Takei), Hashi (Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa) and Kamekichi (Academy Award nominee Brenda Vaccaro). But his relatively quiet existence is shattered when he accidentally summons a spirit from his past which storms down from the heavens to enforce an age-old vendetta. Now on the run, Kubo joins forces with Monkey (Academy Award winner Charlize Theron) and Beetle (Academy Award winner Matthew McConaughey), and sets out on a thrilling quest to save his family and solve the mystery of his fallen father, the greatest samurai warrior the world has ever known. With the help of his shamisen – a magical musical instrument – Kubo must battle gods and monsters, including the vengeful Moon King (Academy Award nominee Ralph Fiennes) and the evil twin Sisters (Academy Award nominee Rooney Mara) to unlock the secret of his legacy, reunite his family and fulfill his heroic destiny.

'Imba Means Sing discussion Guide image

Los Angeles, CA –November 9, 2015 – Spanning locations across the world, from the slums of Uganda to the streets of New York, this uplifting and inspiring film weaves together the lives of three young Africans who have been selected to participate in the Grammy-nominated African Children’s Choir.

Debuting digitally on December 4th, IMBA MEANS SING is an intimate character portrait told through the perspective of eight-year-old Moses, the choir’s star drummer. Growing up in the slums of Kampala, Uganda, Moses and his family lack enough resources for him to even attend the first grade and know all too well that this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to secure his future and change the course of his family’s life. Armed with his youthful resilience and infectious smile, the film follows his journey from poverty towards his dream of becoming a pilot as he works for an education and spreads the magic of his African childhood.

Two fellow Choir members – Angel and Nina – join Moses as audiences experience Uganda and the West through their inquisitive and joy-filled eyes. Share in the heartbreak, homesickness and candid humor as Moses loses his drum solo, Nina yearns for her mom to get a job, and Angel pushes herself to become the first female President of Uganda. While the journey may come to a close when the children return home, one thing is certain: life as they knew it would never be the same.

Children selected to be in the African Children’s Choir are professionally trained to sing and dance. With their new vocational and educational opportunities, they are flown to the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom to perform in theaters, churches and community centers. Wise beyond their years, Angel, Moses and Nina understand the enormity of the opportunity they’ve been given and want desperately to do a good job. They are performing to raise the money that will fund their educations through college. The stakes are high: their own futures and the futures of their families rest in their hands.

In an effort to raise awareness and support for music education locally and equal access to education as a human right globally, IMBA MEANS SING will be released digitally worldwide December 4th. 100% of the filmmaker profits will be donated to help educate more kids in Africa through the African Children’s Choir.

Star Wars The New Yoda Chronicles is Bricktastic

Star wars The new Yoda chronicles DVD

Unleash the lighter side of the force with four complete episodes of Legos Star Wars: The New Yoda Chronicles. Your favorite heroes are back in Lego form as Luke goes on a quest to find the holocrons so that he can learn to be a Jedi. With Yoda and Obi-Wan watching from the sidelines and Darth Vader constantly talking to himself on his never ending quest to destroy the rebels, the race for the holocrons is an exciting adventure with action-packed thrills and interlocking, intergalactic comic adventures. The best part about this collection is it is fun for the whole family! Featuring Emperor Palpatine. Master Yoda, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, Leia, Han, Chewbacca, and more! Also coming out of retirement is the superclone Jek-14!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Episode 1: Escape from the Jedi Temple takes us back in time to when the Jedi temple is lost to the emperor and his craziness. The younglings, Bail Organa (an unknown coward), C-3PO (an unknown droid) and superclone Jek-14 must retrieve the holocrons from the Jedi temple and hide them where no one can find them. Their mission takes them into very dangerous territory that is now controlled by the dark side. With the not-so-helpful Yoda and Obi-wan watching their every move while they hover in space, the heroes retrieve the holocrons and flee Coruscant.

Episode 2: Race for the Holocrons continues the story as Ben tells Luke to find the holocrons so that he can learn to be a Jedi. The information contained in them will help him realize his destiny and become a Jedi like his father. Unfortunately, Vader is also after the Holocrons by order of the emperor. His exact words to Vader are, “I’ve got a fever and the only prescription are those holocrons!” I don’t think the emperor is as subtle in Lego form. His squareness must lead to more eccentric behavior, which adds to the hilariousness that I have come to expect in Lego movies.

Lego Star Wars The New Yoda Chronicles Jek-14

Episode 3: Raid on Coruscant is more of a clean up episode, as in, “the heroes have to clean up the mess they made when they let Vader retrieve the holocrons.” Now with all that power in the emperors hands, they empire begins to raid planets that are sympathetic to the rebellion. With time short and planets in trouble, Yoda and Ben call upon the one person that can help Luke win the battle…No not Qui-gon…they call on Jek-14. Oh, but ummm, Qui-Gon is still important, i mean he is great at opening pickle jars…right?

Lego Star Wars The New Yoda Chronicles Luke

Episode 4: Clash of the Skywalkers brings the story to a close as we get to see Luke and Vader fight to the death in an epic one-on-one battle. The Lego lightsabers clash on an unknown asteroid surface as the force flies between the two Skywalkers. It is a battle for the ages, of good vs. evil, dark vs. light, red vs. Blue and a Slug. Only one will be victorious, only one will survive, may the odds be ever in their favor…wait, wrong film. Besides, this is a Lego movie, death is only momentary, they can be rebuilt. They have the technology. They can make them better than they were. Better, stronger, faster. Or at the very least, they will be square again.

Along with all four episodes, this DVD collection also comes with an alternate ending, which is perfect for us Dark Side sympathizers. I will give you a sneak peek: We get to see Darth Vader do a conga line. The Alternate Ending is a nice surprise and fits well with the whole comedy theme. They only thing I wish they would do is place the alternate ending in with the entire episode. It is annoying to have to stop the episode in just the right spot and then click Alternate Ending to continue the story with the ending I want. It would be simpler for a person to choose between a Jedi or Sith episode and see the whole thing in one go.

Lego Star Wars The New Yoda Chronicles Vader1

I, however, absolutely enjoyed this collection and found myself laughing through every episode. The fun Lego theme and hilarious off the wall dialog makes for an entertaining story. Let’s face it, when Darth Vader “dents his head thing” I nearly fell off the couch with laughter. This is everything I would expect from a Lego inspired Collection. Comical, off the wall and not at all canon, Star Wars The New Yoda Chronicles is a “Bricktastic” fun adventure everyone will love!
