My Interview with Big Hero 6’s Baymax

Recently, I got to visit L.A. for an amazing blogging trip. I interviewed the directors behind Big Hero 6, the voices behind Hiro and Tadashi, and even Scott Adsit (the voice of Baymax). It was a blast talking to them all and getting some serious behind-the-scenes goodies! But there's one interview I didn't share with you guys yet. It was far and away the best. I interviewed Baymax. No, not Scott Adsit, the voice of the personal healthcare companion. But Baymax himself! I had the opportunity to ask the big cuddly guy a few questions, so I did. Check out my questions and his answers below! What is the best medicine in ...

Feeling Bleu: The Sound Behind TinkerBell and the Legend of the Neverbeast

When it comes to movies, I've always been fascinated by sound effects and music. Just think how incredibly boring that Star Wars opening would be without Jon Williams' crazy score. Or Ariel's voice-losing "Ah, ah, ah" tune as Ursula snatched it right out of her throat. Whether it's part of the actual story or just another piece of the puzzle, music certainly controls a large part of emotion in any kind of storytelling. As part of my recent trip to the Disney Toon Studios for a slew of activities surrounding the new TinkerBell and the Legend of the NeverBeast feature, myself and two dozen bloggers had the privilege of sitting down with ...

TinkerBell and the Legend of the Neverbeast Review

The Neverbeast stands guard at Disney Toon Studios Ever wonder how bunnies knew how to hop? Or monkeys learned how to Ook Ook? Well, the answer's pretty obvious. They were taught. See if you knew anything about anything, then you'd know that there are fairies in Pixie Hollow who do all sorts of wonderful things for this world. One of them, thanks to the animal-type fairies, is to work with all the baby animals, teaching them how to… well, be themselves.

Ginnifer Goodwin on Playing a Disney Fairy, Owning Pets and Kissing a Blogger

Photo: Silvia/Mama Latina Tips Snow White kissed me. Okay so it was on the cheek (hey, we're both married!), but it was still a kiss from a true Disney Princess. Let me explain… As part of an amazing Disney blogging experience in LA (we call it #McFarlandUSAEvent), myself and 24 other bloggers spent time at the incredibly cool Disney Toon Studios. We were there specifically to talk to the creative teams behind the brand-new animated movie TinkerBell and the Legend of the Neverbeast. (You did read my interview with Producer Michael Wigert and Director Steve Loter, right?) The highlight of that day? Yeah, meeting the voice of the movie's main character Fawn: Ginnifer Goodwin. Yes, ...

The Voice Behind Big Hero 6’s Baymax, Scott Adsit is Satisfied with His Care

Scott Adsit cares. More specifically, he cares if you're satisfied with your care. Y'see, Adsit is the voice behind Disney's lovable personal healthcare assistant Baymax from the Oscar-Award winning animated film Big Hero 6. He may play a gentle robot on the screen, but thanks to Adsit, Baymax is way more human than you'd think. Wearing a purple button-down shirt and gray sports jacket, Adsit sat down for an interview session with myself and 24 other bloggers. It's all part of a whirlwind Disney LA Blogging trip called #McFarlandUSAEvent.  Quite different from the stressed-out, neurotic sitcom writer he played on TV's 30 Rock, Adsit was all smooth and steady as he answered questions ...

10 Things You Never Knew About TinkerBell and the Legend of the Neverbeast

Photo: Disney TinkerBell and the Legend of the Neverbeast is the fairy embodiment of "judging a book by its cover." When animal-loving fairy Fawn stumbles across Gruff the Neverbeast, she's fascinated by his mysterious actions. And also terrifed of his enormous size. There's a lot that Fawn, Tink, Nyx and the rest of Pixie Hollow need to learn about Gruff. And over time that's just what they do. But as a viewer, there are things you won't even know unless you pull back the curtain and go behind the scenes! On my recent blogging trip to L.A. (dubbed #McFarlandUSAEvent), I joined two dozen of my fellow bloggers at the Disney Toon Studios ...
