I will be attending this trip courtesy of Disney and my flight, lodging, and meals will be covered. However, all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own!
I am Headed to LA for the #PetesDragonEvent
I am super excited to share that I received a sprinkling of Pixie Dust in my email just a few days ago. I received an invite to head to LA with 24 other bloggers for the #PetesDragonEvent . This is so exciting for me as I have never been to LA (or California for that matter) and Pete’s Dragon is a long time favorite Disney film of mine. The #PetesDragonEvent is from 8/7 – 8/9 and I can’t wait to share all the exciting activities and information with you. These three days are going to be action packed and will include the following activities.
Interview with Bryce Dallas Howard
Bryce Dallas Howard plays Grace Meacham, a forest ranger, in Pete’s Dragon. She discover’s Pete in the forest where he has lived for six years with a mysterious dragon named Elliott. She sets out to find out who Pete really is and the truth about Elliott. I can’t wait to find out Bryce Dallas Howard’s thoughts on her role in Pete’s Dragon and what attracted her to this project.
Pete’s Dragon Red Carpet Premiere
I don’t really need a reason to go shopping for new clothes but walking the Red Carpet at the premiere of Pete’s Dragon is my best excuse yet. I can’t wait for the chance to dress up and enjoy this amazing star filled event at the LA premiere. Make sure you are following the #PetesDragonEvent on Social Media for pictures of the event.
Pete’s Dragon opens in theaters everywhere on 8/12/16.
Queen of Katwe Screening
While I am in LA, I will also get to see an early screening of Queen of Katwe. This powerful film tells the true true story of a young girl from the streets of rural Uganda. Her world changes rapidly once she is introduced to the game of chess. As a result of the support she receives from her family and community she is instilled with the confidence and determination to fulfill her dream. Her dream is to be an international chess champion.
QUEEN OF KATWE opens in theaters everywhere on 9/23/16.
We will also get to preview footage from the Disney animated movie MOANA. I am excited to see the behind the scenes action that takes place when creating a film. MOANA tells the story of an adventurous teenager who sails out on a daring mission to save her people. During her journey, Moana (voice of Auli’i Cravalho) meets the once-mighty demigod Maui (voice of Dwayne Johnson), who guides her in her quest to become a master wayfinder. Together, they sail across the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous monsters and impossible odds, and along the way, Moana fulfills the ancient quest of her ancestors and discovers the one thing she’s always sought: her own identity
MOANA opens in theaters everywhere on 11/23/16.

Lastly, we will get to see bonus content that will be featured on The Jungle Book Blu-Ray and Digital HD release. I love watching bonus content and I can’t wait to see all that has been included.
THE JUNGLE BOOK will be available on Digital HD on 8/23 and Blu-ray on 8/30.
