When we walked out of the theatre after viewing CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR, I asked my son what he thought of the movie. He told me that the Black Panther was his new favorite character. As a long time Iron Man fan, who was beyond excited for Spider-Man to join the crew, it was a nice surprise to hear him pick the alter ego of T’Challa. My son was not familiar at all with the character of Black Panther prior to watching CIVIL WAR. But this new to the Marvel Cinematic Universe definitely made a great first impression on one little Marvel fan, who absolutely can’t wait for the self-titled BLACK PANTHER to hit theaters in February 2018.
You know what’s a great month? February. You have Presidents Day, Valentine’s Day, Black History Month, my birthday… and Marvel’s BLACK PANTHER finally hits the theaters! In CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR, when we first meet T’Challa, he’s already stepped into his role as Black Panther. In this self-titled film, we watch as this hero returns to Wakanda to succeed the throne after the death of his father, the King (as seen in CIVIL WAR).
Disney•Pixar has done it again creating such an imaginative and visually beautiful feature! If you haven’t watch the trailer for COCO yet, you are missing out. I love love love that this movie contains a stunning Dia de los Muertos theme, as Halloween is one of my family’s favorite holidays. And while my son is excited to see the film on the big screen, I’m thinking about all the delicious Mexican cuisine I can make all in the name of celebrating the release of COCO this November!
Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate’s life for me…
I can still remember the first time I rode the Pirates of the Caribbean ride in Disney World at the age of four. I was nervous at first. Being just four, the skeletons, the storm, the dark… it all seemed a little bit scary. But after I survived that “oh so big” drop, I could hear the pirates singing, and I was able to enjoy the rest of the ride! And may have then begged my parents to ride it a few more times… and convinced them to buy me one of those paper mâché parrots from the Pirate’s Bazaar Gift Shop (which I still own and hangs in my loft to this day.)
The pirates are back… PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES arrives in theaters this May! The next installment in the wildly successful PIRATES franchise, following the adventures of Captain Jack Sparrow, is definitely one to be excited for! Today I’m sharing with you a featurette and the latest TV spot for the film. These are must see videos for any PIRATES fans out there.
