Movie Review: Does Saving Mr. Banks Need Saving? #SavingMrBanks

-28

What's not to be excited about? Saving Mr. Banks brings the story of Walt Disney and Mary Poppins author P. L. Travers to life. With the film's limited release starting last Friday, lots of rumors and reviews have begun floating around about the screenplay and characters portrayed by Emma Thompson and Tom Hanks. Going into the movie, I expected to see a series of scenes recreating the making of the Mary Poppins movie with lots of whimsy and behind the scenes looks. To my surprise, Saving Mr. … [Read more...]

Take a Trip with the Traveling Travers Tour #MaryPoppins #SavingMrBanks

Paul Giamatti as Ralph

Before signing over the rights to Mary Poppins, P. L. Travers was swooned around Los Angeles by Walt Disney as he plead his case for making the film. In the new movie Saving Mr. Banks, the previously untold story of Travers and Disney's acquaintanceship comes to life on the big screen. To provide a most accurate setting, most of the scenes from the movie were shot on location at the Walt Disney Studios lot in Burbank, California. I had to chance to tour the lot and compile this list of must-see … [Read more...]

Mary Poppins on Blu-ray with Tons of Bonus Features #MaryPoppins #DisneyFrozenEvent

Holiday traditions aren't big in my family. We celebrate Christmas wherever we are on Christmas morning, and watch whatever movie we feel like. The only thing that has remained consistent for at least the last decade is the great DVD exchange. I can always count on receiving a couple movies, and I tend to buy a few as gifts. We've had to start wrapping DVDs and Blu-rays in other boxes since we've become experts at recognizing the shapes. As you can imagine, my dad's DVD collection has grown … [Read more...]

Being a Prince with Santino Fontana #DisneyFrozenEvent

frozen5206dfa80cf45

Princes Eric, Naveen, Phillip, Florian, and Henry have all swooned leading lady princesses in Disney Animation in a tradition of finding love. Sometimes their desirability made it seem like even Mr. Wonderful would never be good enough in real life, but day dreaming over chiseled jaws still seems all the worthwhile. It's rare that you meet a real life prince, but triple-threat Santino Fontana proves the fairytale still exists. His repertoire includes the role of Tony in the original Broadway … [Read more...]

Throwback Thursday: Pete Menefee Steps Back In Time With Mary Poppins #DisneyFrozenEvent

Source

Let's take Throwback Thursday all the way back to 1963. Walt Disney, a rising entrepreneur and dreamer, obtains the rights to a book by P. L. Travers called Mary Poppins. After much debate, he sets forth on a musical adventure combining animation and live-action film. Among many songs featuring stars Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke, a flurry of chimney sweepers dance and flip their way around the rooftops of London. In the dozen men who may be considered one of the most iconic dance troupes of … [Read more...]

Voice Acting 101 #DisneyFrozenEvent

-9

Before an animation begins, the cast hits the recording booth with the directors to perform all of the lines. Actors are given the script, and sometimes sketches or rough animation for inspiration, and then deliver their lines to an empty room with a microphone. It doesn't sound quite as glamorous as a red carpet, does it? Once the tracks are selected for the final movie, animators motion the characters to say the words in sync and behave with body language appropriately. I have a background … [Read more...]

Get A Horse! With A Fresh Look on Animation #DisneyFrozenEvent

GET A HORSE!

Lately, half of the anticipation for seeing Disney movies in theaters has been for the bonus feature that pre-rolls before the film. After Walt Disney Animation Studios outdid themselves with lovable Paperman, my expectations were high going in for Frozen. Get A Horse! totally blew me away with an old school Mickey Mouse flair, and what looked to be a simple animation turned out to be a highly involved process spearheaded by director Lauren MacMullan (who is Disney's first ever solo female … [Read more...]

Our Favorite Disney Frozen Products for Holiday Gift Giving #DisneyFrozenEvent

6070040580939

One of the biggest reasons I love holiday shopping is because I have an excuse to buy so many toys and cute things that are normally not in my daily budget. My niece is 3 years old, so you can imagine how much fun I have buying her favorite princess outfits and dolls. Though she's a committed girly girl, that doesn't stop her from also loving skulls, rock 'n roll, dinosaurs, and being messy. Princess Anna in Frozen reminds me so much of my niece, because she's not afraid to be goofy and embraces … [Read more...]

Disney Frozen Review: Must See Family Movie #DisneyFrozenEvent

-2

As I'm sure you've seen me gushing already, Frozen is my new favorite Disney animated movie. I've been holding in as many details as I could (and I'll still try to spare spoilers, but consider this your warning for whatever might get blurted out), but now's the time for me to share them all. I've seen the movie twice, and honestly, I can't wait to see it again now in theaters. I've been telling every man, woman, and child to use whatever excuse necessary to see Frozen, and here's why: Every … [Read more...]

Behind the Scenes of Frozen #DisneyFrozenEvent

-4

We all know how movies are made: writers create the script, directors and producers shoot actors performing, editors put it all together, and then we watch it. As it turns out, animation is much more complicated. Considering that Frozen has been in production for two years, a lot of hard work has come from directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee. Together with producers Peter Del Vecho and iconic Disney animation producer John Lasseter, Buck and Lee lead the new Disney classic with a team of over … [Read more...]

The Voice of Anna: Kristen Bell #DisneyFrozenEvent

Disney Princesses have a signature voice. Their melodies can bring animals to do chores, and women like Ilene Woods and Jodi Benson have become household names for their iconic work as beloved classic princesses. Since Mandy Moore brought in the revolution of new princesses with her performance in Tangled, the bar has been raised for Disney actresses. After a career of highs as 'Veronica Mars' and 'Sarah Marshall,' actress Kristen Bell returned to her roots of music to join the ranks of Disney … [Read more...]
