The happiest blog on Earth
Hello everyone and happy Halloween to you! Today is the perfect day to watch The Nightmare Before Christmas and break out your Disney-themed costumes.
In fact, I was Peter Pan!
In the spirit of Halloween, I made you all a Disney Halloween playlist!
Whether you're Disney-themed or not, have a wonderful Halloween night and stay safe!
The other day I watched The Incredibles for the first time in a long time; I had forgotten what a master piece this movie is.
The Incredibles tells the story of a family of superheroes who are trying to be normal after society scolds them for being super. The father of the family, Bob Parr (AKA Mr. Incredible), is addicted to undercover saving. His wife, Helen (AKA Elastigirl) has her hands full with their three children Violet, Dash, and Jack-Jack. When Mr Incredible, tempted by the chance to relive his glory days, finds himself in a situation that is too much for him to handle alone, the family comes together and learns that they are more than the sum of their parts.
My favorite part of the movie pertaining to the animation is the detail they put into some of the action scenes. Everything is moving quickly and it feels like the action sequences in this movie could stand up to those in any live-action movie.
The plot is completely family-centered and teaches an awesome lesson about being special. The main villain, Syndrome, has one fantastic line (which he technically shares with Dash), where he says, "And when everyone is special, no one will be." There are so many funny moments, including Syndrome's mention of villains monologuing, Edna's capes, Mr. craziness, and what may be the most famous scene from the movie: Frozone and his wife.
The Incredibles is a must-see for anyone who loves Disney and/or Superhero flicks and/or touching family movies. It's never too early to teach someone that they have the chance to be incredible.
I cannot contain my excitement enough to put the usual hi and and introduction because Brad Bird is releasing a movie called Tomorrowland next year and the teaser came out today!
How do I form coherent sentences?
The movie will feature George Clooney as Frank, Britt Robertson as Casey, and follow the pair as they "travel" to the mystical Tomorrowland.
See the teaser here.
Brad Bird, of Ratatouille, The Incredibles, and The Iron Giant fame, is directing. Damon Lindelof is writing the screenplay; he co-created Lost!

Entertainment Weekly did an in-depth article here, and gave us this gorgeous picture.
Disney has made sure to fill the end of 2014 and all of 2015 with exciting premieres, and I can't wait to see what they have in store.
I had originally planned on posting all of my pictures at the end of the week, but I have too many cute pictures to wait. You can enjoy them below:
*EDIT: More pictures have been added to the slideshow!*
As if my school had planned it out for me, our theme for homecoming this year is "Where Dreams Come True", which basically means Disney-themed.
Every day next week will be a themed day, and I'll take plenty of pics (and videos?) throughout the week. We also have a parade, a movie on the football field, and more which I will be reporting on.
Here's the schedule for the weekdays:
You can look forward to some great Disney cosplay!
