There’s a new flock in town that you won’t want to miss that has landed in theaters today. To celebrate the release of STORKS, we attended a very special premier of the movie at Warner Bros studio last month. We cannot wait to watch the movie again now that it is in theaters.


About the film

Storks deliver babies…or at least they used to. Now they deliver packages for global internet giant Cornerstore. Junior, the company’s top delivery stork, is about to be promoted when he accidentally activates the Baby Making Machine, producing an adorable and wholly unauthorized baby girl. Desperate to deliver this bundle of trouble before the boss gets wise, Junior and his friend Tulip, the only human on Stork Mountain, race to make their first-ever baby drop – in a wild and revealing journey that could make more than one family whole and restore the storks’ true mission in the world. It’s a little bundle of joy that will warm your heart.

Kate Hudson Stars in Kung Fu Panda 3 as Mei Mei! #KungFuPanda

Kate Hudson Stars in Kung Fu Panda 3!

By Patrick &  Erin

*We were invited as media to attend a sneak peek of Kung Fu Panda 3 and interview with the lovely Kate Hudson.*


Dreamworks has done it again! Returning with its biggest comedy adventure yet, Kung Fu Panda 3 returns, staring Kate Hudson as the voice of Mei Mei. The film will tell the story of Po’s (Jack Black) discovery of a secret panda village, including his long-lost father Li (Bryan Cranston).  Kate voices Mei Mei who is an aspiring ribbon dancer. On January 29th, Kung Fu Panda 3 is coming to theaters across the country.  Whether you want to see it with your kids or were a fan of the previous films, there are a ton of reasons to be excited about this movie.  We were lucky enough to get a sneak peek at Jack Black’s latest romp during a trip to Dreamworks Studios.  After the screening, we caught up with Kate Hudson (who does the voice of Mei Mei, a new character) in a round table interview to talk about the movie.


“Mei Mei” the character that Kate Hudson is the voice for.

This was Hudson’s first time doing an animated film, and she was excited about the opportunity to try something different.  “Anybody who’s an actor or performer, you know, that’s what we love,” she said.  “The whole point is trying new things.”  She said a large difference between live and voice acting is the amount of hyperbole you’re allowed to put into the character, especially since you read lines alone in a room: “We just had to be so big and so huge.  And it was so much fun to do in a booth where you just to go there, and you go so far that you end up cracking yourself up.”


Her character, Mei Mei is a fellow panda who shows up in the movie when Po final finds his native town.  She is vibrant with a big personality that screams girl power.  “It’s sort of like I had that kind of confidence sometimes,” she said about Mei Mei.

This latest installment of the Kung Fu Panda franchise promises to offer a larger, grander experience than the previous two movies.  We get to meet Po’s biological father, and see a new panda village full of new, vibrant characters.  It will bring a whole new dimension to Jack Black’s lovable character.  This also means a bunch of A-list actors that will be added to the cast for this movie.  “The cast is insane,” said Hudson.  “Bryan Cranston, J.K. Simmons, it’s amazing!  It’s such a cool thing to be a part of.”  The cast also boasts Seth Rogan, Jackie Chan, Angelina Jolie and Dustin Hoffman.

Big Hero 6 in the Streets of San Fransokyo

Big Hero 6 in the Streets of San Fransokyo

*I attended an early press day for this film as a guest of Disney for purposes of this post. All thoughts and opinions remain my own. All photos and videos are courtesy of Walt Disney Studios.*

In just a little over a month, Big Hero 6 is set to launch into hearts everywhere and onto the big screen.  Last month,  I introduced you all to a First Look at Who’s Who in Disney’s “Big Hero 6″ where we met the Big Hero 6 Gang: Hiro Hamada, Baymax, Go Go Tango, Wasabi, Honey Lemon, & Fred.


Hiro & Baymax

Now, we’ll go into a little bit more detail about where all of the Big Hero 6 adventures are set to take place. The filmmakers decided to set the pace of this action-packed story into an all-new world that embraced the Japanese influences, but also provided a fresh take unlike anything we’ve ever seen before. Director Don Hall thought about San Francisco originally, but then thought to mesh this city up with Tokyo to create the totally unique city of San Fransokyo. This created a much more playful and exotic tone to the setting of the film. It was something that could be created with endless visual possibilities between the two cities, which are pretty different aesthetically. By meshing these two unique cities together made for a really cool place to set the story.


Filmmakers took trips to both San Francisco and Tokyo and observed the unique architecture of each city to give San Fransokyo its visually distinct look.
