I’m excited to announce that I’ve been invited by Disney and Marvel Studios to head to LA July 29-31 for the Christopher Robin red carpet movie premiere & press junket, Ralph Breaks the Internet presentations, an Avengers: Infinity War experience and more!
It’s going to be the adventure of a lifetime making memories, having fun, and of course work. Well if you can call it work, I just call it fun!
Here’s everything we’re going to do over the course of three very busy but very fun days!
Disney & Marvel Studios invited me on an all-inclusive trip to LA for the #ChristopherRobinEvent experiences. These opinions and ideas are 100% honest and my own.
Christopher Robin Red Carpet Premiere
I want to say that the highlight of this trip for me is going to be walking the red carpet at the Christopher Robin movie premiere Monday night and attending the pre-premiere party BUT the rest of the itinerary is so amazing that I’m really having a hard time picking out the thing I’m most excited about.
Last time I walked the red carpet for the Thor: Ragnarok world premiere, I had no idea what to expect. This time around, I still don’t quite know what to expect; I do know that it’s going to be amazing, energizing, and the chance to get all glammed up for one night with some of my best blogging friends, and keep an eye out for some of my favorite celebs who might be attending the premiere as well!
This time I won’t chicken out if I have the chance to get a selfie. Lesson learned the hard way at the Thor: Ragnarok press conference last year!
And I’ll tell you a little secret that’s not really a secret at all if you follow me on Facebook or Instagram – I’m Disney bounding Piglet for the red carpet! Don’t know what Disney bounding is – read this post! I found the perfect bright pink dress, some great light pink jewelry, and the most amazing Piglet inspired beaded bracelet that I broke down and turned into a necklace.
Get excited for some epic pictures of me and four of my other friends who will Disney bounding the other main characters from the film on Monday, July 30th! It’ll probably look a little bit like this!
Christopher Robin Movie Interviews
When I put together the best Winnie the Pooh quotes a few months ago, I had no idea that just a few short months later I would be getting to talk to Winnie the Pooh himself. Okay fine, the voice of Winnie the Pooh but that’s about as close as you can get.
And not just Winnie the Pooh, I also get to meet and interview other talented cast members from the upcoming Christopher Robin Movie.
Like Ewan McGregor. Yes, the Ewan McGregor who made me swoon in Moulin Rouge, cry in The Impossible, and a little confused in Big Fish. He’s been in so many amazing movies, and I couldn’t have picked a better Christopher Robin. I can’t wait to see how he makes the part his own, especially since people grew up with Winnie the Pooh + Christopher Robin. He has big shoes to fill.
And I’m still secretly hoping that Christopher Robin has a love of singing that just isn’t shown in the previews anywhere. Our interview with producer Kristin Burr at the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration gave me a slight slimmer of hope that they might be a chance.
Pooh and Ewan aren’t the only ones we’re interviewing. The full lineup of Christopher Robin interviews includes:
- Ewan McGregor (Christopher Robin)
- Hayley Atwell (Christopher’s wife, Evelyn Robin)
- Bronte Carmichael (Christopher’s daughter, Madeline Robin)
- Jim Cummings (voice of Winnie the Pooh & Tigger)
- Director Marc Foster
Christopher Robin hits theaters everywhere Friday, August 3rd – advanced tickets available now!
Ralph Breaks the Internet Presentations
On Tuesday before heading home, we get the chance to attend a number of media presentations at Walt Disney Studios all about the upcoming movie Ralph Breaks the Internet (aka Wreck It Ralph 2) similar to what I did for the Incredibles 2 Event at Pixar Animation Studios earlier this year.
My mind was blown during the Pixar trip, and I’m expecting it to be blown again this time around.
You think it’d be too much to bring some of these Wreck it Ralph gifts to the presenters?
Before we start the presentations we get to screen part of the movie. I hope it’s more from the Disney princess scene because there’s nothing better than all the Disney princesses in one room! And I’d love to get some fun ideas to add to these princess party games from the movie!
After the screening, we have a full morning + afternoon full of presentations including:
- Q&A with Director Rich Moore, Director/Writer Phil Johnston, and Producer Clark Spencer
- How the animation team created the inhabitants of the internet (aka Netizens and Net Users)
- How the Walt Disney Studios story team played a unique role in developing this new adventure for Ralph and Vanellope
- How the Environments team turned the abstract concept of the internet into an actual complex world on screen
- And of course – more on the Oh My Disney sequence (princesses!) seen in the trailer above
Ralph Breaks the Internet hits theaters everywhere November 21, 2018!
Avengers: Infinity War BluRay Experiences
Just when you thought this event couldn’t get any better, it can.
When I first got the email inviting me to the Christopher Robin Event, I squealed of course. Then I kept reading and noticed that not only did I get to have all sorts of Christopher Robin fun AND Ralph Breaks the Internet Fun but also that there would some sort of Infinity War portion as well. I’m a bit obsessed with Marvel (have you seen my DIY Marvel t-shirts!??!) so this was just absolute icing on the cake.
Monday morning before we do our Christopher Robin interviews and walk the red carpet, we get the chance to see bonus footage that will be on the Avengers: Infinity War DVD and Blu-Ray (coming out August 14th!), tour the Marvel Super Heroes exhibit at Madame Tussauds Hollywood, and make our own wax Infinity Gauntlet. My son is going to be so jealous.
But that’s not the coolest part – we also get to interview Avengers: Infinity War Executive Producer Trinh Tran.
I have so many questions I don’t even know where to start. I’m guessing most of them are unanswerable but still – so many questions.
Hopefully I’ll come back with some fun inside information about Avengers: Infinity War and who knows maybe even the Untitled Avengers movie coming out next year!
Avengers: Infinity War will be available on digital July 31st and on Blu-Ray & DVD on 8/14!
Follow Along July 29-July 31st
That’s the full itinerary and you guys, I’m so excited and looking forward to laughing until my tummy hurts and enjoying one more great adventure thanks to Disney and Marvel!
Make sure to follow along all three days as we learn about Christopher Robin, Ralph Breaks the Internet, and Avengers: Infinity War. I’ll be using the hashtags #ChristopherRobinEvent, #RalphBreakstheInternetEvent, and #InfinityWarBluRay to make it easier to follow along!
What questions do you have for the talent? Leave me comments with what you’d like to know, and I’ll do my best to ask!
