Last Friday night, as a part of our project with Random House, The Random House Kids Read & Play Summer Learning Community, we were a part of a live chat of which the subject was “Books turned into Movies.” Of course the obvious ones were discussed first: Harry Potter, Twilight, The Cat in the Hat, Marley and Me, Pride & Prejudice, etc., but once we started getting deeper into the conversation, we were amazed at how many movies are based off of really phenomenal books.
In celebration of the release of Cars 2, the fantastic sequel to Disney & Pixar’s original animated motion picture Cars, we’re hosting a Cars 2 prize pack give away sponsored by Disney! I was lucky enough to attend an advanced screening for media this past Saturday, and my three year old son adored it so much that he asked to see it again on opening night. You don’t want to miss this one.
Disney has released concept art from its upcoming animated film, Disney Pixar’s Brave:
“The rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland serve as the backdrop for BRAVE, a new tale that joins the land’s ancient lore—stories of epic battles and mystical legends passed down for generations. BRAVE is the grand adventure of Merida (voice of Kelly Macdonald), a skilled archer who confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts to discover the true meaning of courage.”
