I am Heading to LA Aug 7-9 to Cover the #PetesDragonEvent + FREE Printables

This year has been a year of Pixie Dust in my inbox, and I’m excited to share the news with you! This time next week I’ll be in Los Angeles, California along with 24 other bloggers to cover and attend the red (or just maybe it’ll be green) carpet premiere of Pete’s Dragon (opening in theatres 8/12). The #PetesDragonEvent will run from August 7th-9th, and I cannot WAIT to share all the excitement before during and after. I haven’t been to LA in a few years, so this is two treats in one for me.

In addition to walking the red carpet for the #PetesDragonEvent, we will also get to chat it up with Bryce Dallas Howard, who stars in the movie! Bryce Dallas Howard plays Grace, who is a park ranger that discovers the existence of Elliott and 10-year-old Pete. If you haven’t already seen the trailer, you really must. Check it out!

And because we all know how awesome Disney is, since we’ll just happen to be in town, we will also get to take a sneak peek at some of the exciting bonus content featured on the Blu-ray and digital release of THE JUNGLE BOOK (available on Digital HD on 8/23 and Blu-ray on 8/30), attend an early advance screening of QUEEN OF KATWE (*screaming* opening in theatres on 9/23) and preview footage from the upcoming Walt Disney Animation Studios release MOANA (opening in theatres on 11/23)! Oh yes, they are giving us all of the insider access, and I am here for all of it! I just can’t tell my kids about it until after the fact, or they may try to stowaway in my luggage.

    Where does one line up for pixie dust? Hahaha. Jokes. But YES to watching Queen of Katwe. Finally I can make a positive movie reference of the beloved Pearl Of Africa. The Last King of Scotland, as good as Forest Whitaker is, just didn’t bring the same excitement, lol. Over here screaming with you girl, go strut that red carpet! 😉
