Disney is rolling out the red carpet and zooming 20 blogger moms to Los Angeles for a rip-roarin' good time for the premiere of Cars 2 on June 18th at the legendary El Capitan Theater. I will be happily representing for MyBrownBaby.com (Thank you Denene!) and I am super-charged and ready to go! You best believe on the 15th I will burn-rubber trying to get to Burbank for the mommy Blogger Disney/DreamWorks Event!
During my five-day stay in LA, I will preview Disney movies, Cars 2, set for a June 24 release in Disney Digital 3Dâ„¢ and IMAX® 3D,The Help, Winnie the Pooh, and the animated short, The Ballad of Nessie. Part of the Disney pageantry will include tours of the animation studios, interviews with Disney movie directors, drawing demos, and a peek at how they do voice recordings.
This is an incredible trip and this momma's dream to be a special Disney guest. I grew up on Disney movies and have taken my kids to Disney almost every year since they've been born. And my kids love anything Disney from pretty princesses to fantastical fairies and Caribbean pirates. I think they have pixie dust pouring through their veins.
Although I feel like the belle of the ball headed to Hollywood for a whimsical fairytale adventure, I also feel a little guilty about taking this trip without my kids but eh, I'm already over it!
I’ll be blogging updates on the Disney fun and I'd love for you to be a part of the fanfare by telling me below what interview questions you would like me to ask the stars of Cars 2!
A quick Cars 2 primer: Owen Wilson is the star racecar Lightning McQueen; Larry the Cable Guy is the voice of tow truck, Mater; Emily Mortimer is the voice of Holley Shiftwell, a spy; and Michael Caine plays the British super spy Finn McMissile. Once again, Pixar powerhouse John Lasseter brings together the hot rods and takes them overseas to compete in the first-ever World Grand Prix to determine the world's fastest car. Cars 2 is co-directed by Brad Lewis, producer of the Oscar®-winning film, Ratatouille.
I'm ready and revving to go! So sit back, and enjoy the ride as I bring you full throttle with my own Hollywood adventure covering Cars 2, June 15th-18th!
