Disclosure- I have been provided an all expense paid trip to Los Angeles for the Big Hero 6 movie premiere and ABC TV Event in exchange for coverage of these events. All opinions are 100% my own. Thank you so much Disney and ABC TV!
I am so excited to announce that my e-mail was sprinkled with some Disney fairy dust a few weeks ago. I have been invited back to Los Angeles with 24 other bloggers for an AMAZING, jam packed press trip. Just like when I went to the red carpet premiere of Frankenweenie and Disney’s Planes, part of this trip includes walking the red carpet at the El Capitan Theater in Hollywood for the premiere of Big Hero 6. And after the premiere we’ll be rubbing elbows with stars at the after party. I wonder who we’ll see?!?!
My girls have been talking about BIG HERO 6 ever since they saw the trailer and I can’t blame them. I am also beyond excited to be seeing this movie.
But my excitement doesn’t stop there for Big Hero 6. Sure, walking the red carpet will be amazing but we’ll also be touring the Disney Animation Studios, learning all about how Big Hero 6 was made from with the filmmakers- Directors Don Hall & Chris Williams and Producer Roy Conli. We will also be interviewing Jamie Chung (voice of “Go Go Tomago” – @jamiechung1) and Genesis Rodriguez (voice of “Honey Lemon” – @genirodriguez). We will get a drawing demo, get to try our hand at voicing one of the characters and lots more.
Here’s a trailer of Big Hero 6 so you can see what we’re so excited about. #BigHero6Event
I’m also excited to see the movie short that is being shown before Big Hero 6 called FEAST. It looks adorable! We’ll be interviewing FEAST Director Patrick Osborne & Producer Kristina Reed (who I met when we interviewed her for her work on Paperman).
And here is a sneak peek at FEAST. How cute is this dog!?!?!
Sounds like a great trip, right? Well all of that is just the tip of the iceberg. There is so much more excitement in store for us. We will be attending a live taping of “Dancing with the Stars” (Monday nights at 8/7c) at the glamorous ballroom set! That’s right, we’ll be in the audience in the middle of the action and surrounded by stars. I have 2 left feet when it comes to dancing but I love to watch it so I am so excited to be there live. Plus we get to get all dressed up for the show! After several days of dress shopping I finally found the perfect dress but you’ll have to wait a little while to see what I picked. Afterwards, we’ll be going out to dinner and we will be live tweeting during the West coast airing of the show – when a special guest (or two!) might make an appearance. I can’t wait to see who our special guest(s) might be! I secretly hope it’s Alfonso Ribeiro. This is a clip of my favorite dance he’s done so far on the show. #ABCTVEvent and #DWTS
Have you seen the hilarious new ABC show, black-ish (Wednesday nights at 9:30/8:30c) ? It stars Anthony Anderson (@anthonyanderson) and Tracee Ellis Ross @TraceeEllisRoss and it is hysterical! We’ll be visiting the Walt Disney Studio Lot for special preview screenings of episodes of ABC shows, including black-ish – which also shoots on the Disney lot, so we might be touring the set, too!
This is one of my favorite clips from the show. If you haven’t seen it yet, check out what you’re missing. #blackishABC
We will also be screening the upcoming musical comedy “Galavant” (hosted by Executive Producer Dan Fogelman of “Tangled” and “Cars” fame). Here’s a clip to see what it’s all about. #Galavant
Are you a Marvel- Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. fan? Agent Carter is a new show that will debut in January 2015 during the season two mid-season break of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. We will be meeting Agent Carter herself (aka actress Hayley Atwell), interviewing the Executive Producers Tara Butters and Michele Fazekas (also EPs on Resurrection– one of my favorite shows), touring the set and other super exciting things! #ABCTVEvent #AgentCarter
Just added to our adventure, we will be screening the new Kevin Costner film McFARLAND, USA!!! The movie doesn’t open until 2/22/15 so there isn’t even a trailer to show you yet but I’ll be sure to share one with you when it does.
I can’t wait to share with you all the exciting details of my trip with my readers. Have any questions for any of stars, directors, producers, etc. that I might be meeting? Be sure to send them to me via e-mail or Twitter.
