We’re Invited to Los Angeles for #MaleficentEvent and #FireandRescueEvent

One of the earliest Disney movies I can remember seeing in theaters is Sleeping Beauty. It has always been one of my most favorite Disney films and features one of the scariest villains I think the studio has ever invented: Maleficent. So when I found out that a live-action film centered around Maleficent was scheduled to be released in 2014, I stalked every news article, interview, and Facebook status update about the film. Not to mention that I have spent years collecting Maleficent merchandise such as T-shirts, wallets, and even a glasses case.
I have some pretty exciting news to share: in less than a week, I will be soaring off to Los Angeles for an action-packed three days centering around Disney’s Maleficent (in theaters May 30th, 2014—you can even pre-order your tickets ) and this summer’s release of a sequel to Planes, entitled Planes: Fire and Rescue (in theaters July 18th, 2014).
While I and the twenty-four other bloggers invited to attend the event do not yet have a complete itinerary, here is a sneak peek at some of what the amazing folks at Disney have planned for us:
- screenings of Maleficent and Planes: Fire and Rescue
- interviews with select cast members and filmmakers of both films
- a drawing demonstration with animators from Planes: Fire and Rescue
- an opportunity to step into the sound booth and voice a character from Planes: Fire and Rescue
- a product presentation of the newest and hottest merchandise for each film
I hope you are just as excited for each of these films as I am! And if you haven’t yet heard about either film, check out their theatrical trailers now!
I’m taking over Stacie’s Twitter from May 19th-May 21st, so if you’d like to keep up with all twenty-five of us in real time, please follow the hash tags #MaleficentEvent and #FireandRescueEvent
