What an amazing way to start off the year with a trip back to LA for the Black Panther Red Carpet Premiere! I’ve been invited by Disney on an all-expense paid trip to L.A. for very special Disney hosted blogger event! I can’t wait to share all of my adventures and interviews with you. A few months ago I had to cancel a trip to San Francisco for the release of COCO in theatres because one of the girls was sick. Having the chance to now celebrate the in-home release of COCO really makes up for it. Follow along as I get the low down on Black Panther, in-home release of COCO, release of the Signature Collection Lady and the Tramp and The Bachelor Winter Games! You can follow all of my adventures from 1/28- 1/31 on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter using the hashtag #BlackPantherEvent and it will be just like as if you are there with us at the Black Panther Red Carpet Premiere.
Follow Me To LA For The Black Panther Red Carpet Premiere – #BlackPantherEvent
Earlier this month I shared with you all the cool Black Panther trailers and featurettes that have been released. Well, I’ve got a few more to share with you in celebration of my upcoming trip to LA for the Black Panther Red Carpet Premiere! I’m still waiting for the final agenda but it’s going to be packed with cast interviews and more. I’ll update as soon as I know more. All my son wants to know is if I get to interview Michael B. Jordan. He’s got a list of questions at the ready!
It was love at first sight for me when the Black Panther appeared in Captain America: Civil War and his accent makes my stomach flutter and my heart beat just a little faster each time. I can’t wait to meet the HERO. LEGEND. KING. during the Black Panther Red Carpet Premiere. Yes, the Black Panther is a true King born a royal descendant of a warrior race in the African nation of Wakanda. Just who are those warriors that are ready to protect their King? An incredible cast featuring many strong women! Because behind any great man is an even greater woman, right? See it for yourself in this featurette Warriors of Wakanda!

Disney Pixar COCO – #CocoBluray
As I mentioned before, I’m really excited to have a chance to celebrate the in-home release of COCO. Disney, Pixar and Marvel are releasing more and more culturally relevant films that more and more children can identify with. In Disney•Pixar’s COCO you’ll find generations of characters, including Abuelita and great-grandmother MAMÁ COCO as well as an all Latino voice cast! Raising two multicultural girls, it’s important for our family to see a progression in the film industry. Especially in animated films that appeal to young and old. COCO brings two worlds – Land of the Living and Land of the Dead, together to bring music back to the hearts of an aspiring musician’s familia.
Despite his family’s baffling generations-old ban on music, Miguel (voice of newcomer Anthony Gonzalez) dreams of becoming an accomplished musician like his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz (voice of Benjamin Bratt). Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself magically transported to the stunning and colorful Land of the Dead following a mysterious chain of events. Along the way, he meets charming trickster Hector (voice of Gael García Bernal), and together, they set off on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel’s family history. Directed by Lee Unkrich (“Toy Story 3”), co-directed by Adrian Molina (story artist “Monsters University”) and produced by Darla K. Anderson (“Toy Story 3”).
