A Wrinkle in Time’s Deric McCabe Spills All Including How Oprah Ate His Popcorn #WrinkleInTimeBluray

Deric McCabe is just like any other kid in America. He goes to school. He loves being silly. Oh, and he happens to be one of the stars in Disney's A Wrinkle In Time. Okay, so that last one may not be so average, but for an actor, Deric is one grounded and rambunctious kid. Recently on a Disney blogger trip (#HanSoloEvent), we had the privilege of not just seeing some new bonus footage from the A Wrinkle in Time movie, but we spent some time with Deric himself. Being more of a ham than... well, Toy Story's Ham, Deric didn't miss an opportunity to flash his pearly whites or show off ...

I Snuck Into the Disney Animation Research Library #PeterPanBluray

The first thing we were told upon entering Disney's Animation Research Library was, "No pens." Our exclusive tour of the invaluable Disney property that houses all of its original artwork, sketches, animation cels, maquettes and more was going to be pretty darn special. You can usually tell when you're brought into a super secret location of a non-descript building out near Los Angeles, California. And as part of a group of 25 Disney bloggers out west for a #HanSoloEvent and #PeterPanBluray event, we had a very special invitation to this very special building. Now, the no pens rule applies because nobody wants to wreck any of the amazing pieces of artwork we ...

Touring Walt Disney’s Office and Racing Around the Walt Disney Studios Lot in a Scavenger Hunt #PeterPanBluray

I've been on a number of Disney Blogger trips before and got to go behind the scenes of all sorts of Tinkerbell movies like Tinkerbell and the Legend of the Neverbeast and The Pirate Fairy. So when I was recently invited on another Disney Press Trip for #HanSoloEvent (Star Wars!), an awesome trip became even more magical when I knew that pixie dust was involved. Besides celebrating everything SOLO from the new Star Wars movie (which you definitely should go see if you haven't already!), myself and 24 other bloggers helped celebrate 55 years of Disney's animated movie Peter Pan. Yep, the very beginning of Tink's adventures. Our day began at the ...

Woody Harrelson on Star Wars, Jack Nicholson and Having Trust Issues #HanSoloEvent

Woody Harrelson (“Tobias Beckett”). Photo Credit: Louise Manning Bishop / MomStart.com Woody Harrelson doesn't trust me. The prolific actor has come quite a long way from his bartending days on TV's Cheers. He's been in dozens upon dozens of popular films, including huge properties like The Hunger Games. But none have had quite the legacy and fan base as Star Wars. Harrelson plays Tobias Beckett, a rouge. An outlaw. A thief. But if Han Solo's taught us anything, it's that being a scoundrel doesn't make you a bad guy. In SOLO: A Star Wars Story, Beckett finds and basically mentors a young Han Solo (played by Alden Ehrenreich), while pushing his biggest mantra of "trust ...

7 Things You Need to Know about L3-37’s Phoebe Waller-Bridge #HanSoloEvent

Phoebe Waller-Bridge (“L3-37”). Photo Credit: Louise Manning Bishop / MomStart.com A Star Wars movie wouldn't be a Star Wars movie without droids. You can rest easy, though, because SOLO: A Star Wars Story doesn't just have droids, it has L3-37. Played by the highly talented Phoebe Waller-Bridge, L3 isn't just any old droid. Uh uh. She's hellbent on liberating all droids from enslavement. It may sound ridiculous, but L3 is 100% serious. She obeys her master Lando Calrissian, but not without tossing a few sharp verbal jabs his way any chance she gets. She's a co-pilot with probably the greatest sense of direction this side of Google Maps. On a recent blogger trip to Los ...
