Born In China – #BornInChina
In theaters April 21st.
We will be attending a special screening of this film. A must see for any Disneynature fan, like myself. I can’t wait.
Disneynature, in its ongoing quest to bring the natural world to the big screen as never before, presents its most ambitious project to date, taking moviegoers on a grand journey into the wilds of China. “Born In China” follows the adventures of three animal families — the majestic panda, the savvy golden monkey and the elusive snow leopard.
Featuring stunning imagery, the film navigates the vast terrain—from the frigid mountains to the heart of the bamboo forest—on the wings of a red-crowned crane, showcasing remarkably intimate family moments captured on film for the first time ever.
Moana, in home release – #MoanaBluRay
Available on Blu-ray on 3/7.
While in LA we will be attending a fun Polynesian-themed dinner and presentation for the MOANA Blu-ray release including a bonus features showcase and a Q&A with Director Ron Clements and Producer Osnat Shurer! This is going to be so much fun. I just recently saw Moana on the big screen, after our teenage daughter labeled it a “must see”. She was right, I absolutely loved it. The message, the music and the art work are amazing.
The epic journey continues for “Moana” fans as Walt Disney Animation Studios introduces an all-new sing-along version of the hit, critically-lauded comedy-adventure “Moana.” From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes “Moana,” a sweeping, CG-animated adventure about a spirited teenager who sails out on a daring mission to prove herself a master wayfinder and fulfill her ancestors’ unfinished quest. During her journey, Moana meets the once-mighty demi-god Maui, and together, they traverse the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous fiery creatures and impossible odds.
Tangled: The Series – #TangledTheSeries
We will be celebrating and watching a sneak peek of Tangled: The Series, followed by a Q&A with Executive Producer Chris Sonnenburg and Supervising Producer Ben Balistreri. My girls love the Tangled movie. I’m sure this is going to be a big hit for Disney.
The Disney Channel Original Movie “Tangled Before Ever After” (premieres Friday, March 10th at 8/7c) Executive Producer Chris Sonnenburg and Supervising Producer Ben Balistreri. The TV movie, which kicks off the highly-anticipated premiere of “Tangled: The Series” (debuting Friday, March 24th at 7:30/6:30c), unfolds as Rapunzel acquaints herself with her parents, her kingdom and the people of Corona. Her irrepressible spirit and natural curiosity about the world lead her to realize that there is so much more she needs to learn about the world and herself before she can assume her role as Princess of Corona.
Andi Mack – #AndiMack
We will be watching an advance preview of Disney Channel’s upcoming series “Andi Mack” which premieres early spring 2017, followed by a Q&A session with the series’ stars, creator, and executive producer.
Andi Mack is a contemporary, coming-of-age story about a relatable girl who’s trying to determine where she fits in — and the many amazing ways she can live her life. Andi has been raised to live on the safe side but on her 13th birthday, she takes off the proverbial training wheels and eagerly goes headlong into her teenage years. At every twist and turn, she’s anchored by a loving albeit complicated family and her loyal best friends, Cyrus and Buffy.

We will be screening the season 6 premiere episode of “Baby Daddy” and attending a fun Baby Shower lunch / Q&A with Chelsea Kane (“Riley Perrin”), Derek Theler (“Danny Wheeler”) and Tahj Mowry (“Tucker Dobbs”)! I am a big fan of the show, and super excited for this portion of our trip.
Baby Daddy (season 6 premieres Monday, March 13th at 8:30/7:30c)! The season six premiere will pick up three months after the finale, and Ben is still enthusiastically searching for the mysterious Elle. Danny and Riley are hunting for a good doctor to help with the pregnancy, and Bonnie desperately wants to be involved. Tucker is back from Los Angeles, but he refuses to tell anyone what happened while he was there.
We will also be screening a season two episode of “The Catch” and meeting some of the series cast members. Eeek! If you’re not watching this new ABC series, you are seriously missing out. It is so good! Shondaland has landed another hit for sure.
The Catch will return for Season 2 on Thursday, March 9th at 10/9c as part of ABC’s exciting #TGIT line-up. “The Catch” is a sexy, scintillating game of cat and mouse between L.A.’s top private investigator, Alice Vaughan (Mireille Enos), and the man she loves, Benjamin Jones (Peter Krause), the world’s most formidable con artist. At the beginning of season two, con man Benjamin Jones has gone from committing the ultimate betrayal to performing the ultimate sacrifice, when he turned himself in to the FBI to save Alice from wrongful imprisonment. Now in jail, Ben is forced to reckon with his criminal past, while the team at Anderson Vaughan Investigations must come to terms with getting in bed with the bad guys. How will Alice and Ben game the system — and each other — to stay together and overcome their less-than-legal pasts?
Also, while in LA we will be watching the premiere episode of ABC’s upcoming comedy “Imaginary Mary”, followed by a Q&A with Jenna Elfman (“Alice”), Stephen Schneider (“Ben”) and Executive Producers David Guarascio & Patrick Osborne ! This looks like some serious laughs!

This triggers even more upheaval when the slightly unhinged imaginary friend (voiced by Rachel Dratch) she created as a child suddenly reappears to help her navigate the transition from single girl to a woman ready for a family.
While in LA our hotel accommodations are being provided at the beautiful Universal Sheraton Hotel. You know – Where the Stars Stay!
It’s an honor to be invited to such an exciting event, and I can’t wait to experience every part of this trip! I hope you will experience it with me on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. I will be sharing a lot more details, in the way of interviews, photos and some great inside scoop soon.
