Why I Will Be Sitting In The Front Row For Disney Pixar’s COCO

No Comments Disney, Disney Movies, Movies, Sneak Peak

I recently saw this trailer for COCO, a new Disney Pixar movie. I was immediately frozen. I believe in signs. I have for a long time. I look for the good ones that tell me those that have gone before might still be here, watching over me. This movie is a sign.

You see, my first sign with this movie is that my father’s name is Ernesto. He left this Earth far too early. Leaving behind two young daughters with only memories of his voice. The La Voz de Oro. And that is my second sign. He was also a singer in a marichi band and had a voice of gold. That’s what we put on his tombstone.

My Father, Ernesto, is center. 

So already, this movie is speaking to me. Miguel (maybe the character would have been named Marisa if he was a girl) and his magical guitar, searching for answers on dia de los muertos, has so many symbolic reasons that I cannot be more excited to see this movie.

Count me in for front row seats to this movie. My Mom’s birthday is November 2nd, Dia de los Muertos. This movie is due out in November. Coincidence? I’m hoping she and my sister will come with me to see it.

“We are all a part of those that came before.” Never has a movie ever spoke to me this one.

#Cars3 Summer 2017 || Tampa Mama

No Comments Disney, Disney Movies, Lifestyle, Movies

Getting our engines rev’d up for this movie! Cars 3 will be in theaters June 2017! It will be the first one we see this summer!

Hmmmm…maybe a trip to Daytona International Speedway is in order!

A few new characters are hitting the track and I can’t wait to see how it plays out!


Jackson Storm (voice of Armie Hammer)
Jackson Storm is fast, sleek and ready to race. A frontrunner in the next generation of racers, Storm’s quiet confidence and cocky demeanor are off-putting—but his unmatched speed threatens to redefine the sport. Trained on high-tech simulators that are programmed to perfect technique and maximize velocity, Jackson Storm is literally built to be unbeatable—and he knows it.

CARS 3 Cruz Ramirez (voice of Cristela Alonzo) Cruz Ramirez is a sunny-but-fierce unconventional trainer at the Rust-eze Racing Center. She expertly arms the team's talented rookies with cutting-edge tools to tear up the track—but she nearly stalls when her longtime idol Lightning McQueen shows up. While she’d love to help him find his way back to the top, she knows the competition is faster than ever, and victory is all about speed—or is it? ©2016 Disney•Pixar. All Rights Reserved.

Suddenly, he finds himself faced with a new generation of racers who threaten not only his dominance in the sport—but the confidence that got him there. Determined to get back to the pole position, the #95 must decide if his love for racing is enough to fuel the comeback of his life. ©2016 Disney•Pixar. All Rights Reserved.

Han Solo: A New Star Wars Story Begins Production || Tampa Mama

My son is going to flip!  We’ve got a new countdown happening since about noon today when it was announced that Han Solo: A New Star Wars Story Production has begun!  What you say?! Read below for all the details!  
The adventure-filled past of the iconic scoundrel and everyone’s favorite Wookiee is going before cameras this month when principal photography on the untitled Han Solo Star Wars Story officially began February 20th at Pinewood Studios, London.
 The movie will explore the duo’s adventures before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope, including their early encounters with that other card-playing rogue from a galaxy far, far away, Lando Calrissian.
Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are directors co-piloting the movie, with a cast that includes Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Thandie Newton, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge, with Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca. 
“Watching such inspired people from all over the world, with such unique voices, come together for the sole purpose of making art, is nothing short of miraculous,” Lord and Miller said. “We can’t think of anything funny to say, because we just feel really moved, and really lucky.”

 

Written by Lawrence and Jon Kasdan, it will be produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Allison Shearmur, Simon Emanuel and co-produced by Kiri Hart, Susan Towner and Will Allegra. Lawrence Kasdan and Jason McGatlin will executive produce.

 

Crewing the ship will be some of the industry’s top talent, including Academy Award nominee for his work on “Arrival,” Bradford Young (Director of Photography), Chris Dickens (Editor), Dominic Tuohy (SFX Supervisor), Rob Bredow (VFX Supervisor) and Brad Allan (Action Designer).

 

They will be joining returning Star Wars veteran crew members Neal Scanlan (Creature & Droid FX Creative Supervisor), Neil Lamont (Production Designer), Dave Crossman and Glyn Dillon (Co-Costume Designers), Jamie Wilkinson (Prop Master), Lisa Tomblin (Hair), Amanda Knight (Make-Up) and Nina Gold (UK Casting Director). 

 

The untitled Han Solo Star Wars Story is slated for release on May 25, 2018.
