Disney+ Game Show: The Big Fib

The Big Fib (Image from Disney+)

Family game night has long been a favorite in our house - now even more than ever!  While we enjoy a variety of board games and playing cards, we also have fun watching game shows together as a family.  Disney+ is bringing more original content to their streaming service with the new game show, The Big Fib.  Join host Yvette Nicole Brown as kids try to uncover who is telling the truth. . .and who is a big fibber!

Did you know I got to meet Yvette Nicole Brown? Check out my interview!


Review of The Big Fib on Disney+


After watching the first episode, it's easy to see why this will be a favorite among kids.  As the show begins, round one features a pretty obvious fibber.  The focus of round one is more about comedy then about being a real challenge.  On the first episode, this fibber will have you laughing about her career as a hairstylist.  The child contestant identifies the fibber in the first round as a warm-up and then round two gets much harder.  The first episode has two "experts" on jellyfish and the contestant needs to figure out who is lying.  Both "experts" present in a professional manner so it is really difficult to tell who is actually lying.  C.L.I.V.E., the robot assistant, provides clues to the contestant along the way to help test the knowledge of the "experts" and the rapid fire round of questions aims to separate the real expert from the fibber.  At the end of the episode, the contestant presses the Fib Foam button for the person they think has been lying.  If the contestant is right, the liar will be foamed!  I won't spoil the ending of the first episode, but I'll just say that Malachi was right and I was wrong!!

In addition to the humor in this show, I enjoyed the fact that kids can learn something along the way.  Even in the silly first round, the real hairstylist shared a bit about her career.  Yvette Nicole Brown is funny, charismatic, and entertaining as the host of this show.  My kids really enjoyed it and are excited for the next episode!

Have you seen Yvette Nicole Brown in the Disney+ reimagining of Lady and The Tramp?

About The Big Fib (From Disney+)


Ever thought you could spot a fib better than a kid?  Find out on The Big Fib.  A new Disney+ game show, hosted by Yvette Nicole Brown and featuring Rhys Darby as her robot sidekick, C.L.I.V.E. In each episode of this comedy game show, a kid starts by playing a warm-up round where a silly liar and an authentic expert share fabulous fibs and fun facts.  Starring up and coming comedic talent, this round is played for laughs as well as always having a nugget of real information about the topic be it ice-cream, tree-climbing or toy design.  Next our kid contestant plays the main round where they question an expert who's paired with a really good liar on the same topic.  It's up to our kid to find the fibber.  There are visual cues, fascinating props, a hot seat round of rapid-fire questions and various topics, including jellyfish, venom and killer plants.  The show culminates with the expert and liar standing under the Fib Foam machine to await their fate.  If our kid chooses correctly, the liar gets foamed.  The Big Fib is full of outrageous truths that sound like lies and audacious lies that sound like the truth.

The series is hosted by star Yvette Nicole Brown and will feature kid contestants.

"The Big Fib" is produced by Haymaker TV with Aaron Rothman, Josh Halpert, Irad Eyal, Leigh Hampton and Yvette Nicole Brown serving as producers.

"The Big Fib" premieres May 22nd, streaming only on Disney+.

Prop Culture - A Look at the New Disney+ Series

Prop Culture Mary Poppins

The original content on Disney+ has been phenomenal and I always look forward to the next show being released.  May 2020 is bringing several new shows to Disney+ (at least something positive about 2020, right?!?) and Prop Culture was the first to hit the line up.  Before we get to my thoughts, let's take a look at what Disney+ has shared about this series.

About Prop Culture (From Disney+)




Film historian and prop collector Dan Lanigan reunites iconic Disney movie props with the filmmakers, actors, and crew who created and used them in some of Disney’s most beloved films. Throughout this journey, Dan will recover lost artifacts, visit private collections, and help restore pieces from the Walt Disney Archives to their original glory. Among the films featured this season are Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Mary Poppins, The Muppet Movie, Tron and Who Framed Roger Rabbit?
Prop Culture is produced by ABC Studios, a label of Disney Television Studios. The series is executive produced by Jason Henry and Dan Lanigan.

Review of Prop Culture

Richard Sherman Mary Poppins

After watching the first episode of Prop Culture, I have to say the Disney nerd in my sufficiently hooked.  If you are the slightest fan of Disney movies, you will cherish this inside look at rare items and behind-the-scenes stories from those connected with the film.  The first episode takes a look at Mary Poppins - a household favorite for my family!  Our storyteller, Dan Lanigan, takes us on a journey to track down some iconic props from the movie and tell some amazing stories at the same time.  A highlight, watching Richard Sherman play the piano in Walt's office (did you know he's the only person allowed to play it?) and talk about the music behind the film.  Along the way we also meet a choreographer, costume designer, and uncover many props.  Listening to those connected with the movie, makes this piece of Disney history come to life in a totally new way.  
I can't wait to explore more Prop Culture episodes to learn more about some of my favorite films.  This is sure to be a big hit on Disney+ as it follows other popular shows like The Imagineering Story in giving us a behind-the-scenes of some Disney classics.

About Into the Unknown: Making Frozen 2 (From Disney+)



With the clock ticking and less than a year until the world premiere of Frozen 2, the filmmakers, artists, songwriters and cast open their doors to cameras for a six-part documentary series to reveal the hard work, heart, and collaboration it takes to create one of the most highly-anticipated films in Walt Disney Animation Studios’ near-century of moviemaking. For the first time, cameras were there to capture an eye-opening - and at times jaw-dropping - view of the challenges and the breakthroughs, the artistry, creativity and the complexity of creating the #1 animated feature of all time. 

The series follows director/writer/chief creative officer Jennifer Lee, director Chris Buck, producer Peter Del Vecho, songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, actors Kristen Bell (“Anna”), Idina Menzel (“Elsa”), Josh Gad (“Olaf”), Jonathan Groff (“Kristoff”), Sterling K. Brown (“Lieutenant Mattias”), Evan Rachel Wood (“Iduna”) and the talented artists and technicians of Disney Animation as they race against time to finish the film, with both creative breakthroughs and frustrations along the way. Produced by Lincoln Square Productions and Walt Disney Animation Studios.

The "movie" is actually a 2016 filmed version of the original Broadway production starring Lin-Manuel Miranda as Alexander Hamilton and Leslie Odom, Jr as Aaron Burr.  Another familiar face you'll see is Jonathan Groff. . .although his voice may even be more famous as that of Kristoff in Frozen 2. As fans of the show have attested, the original cast that is featured in this filming are phenomenal and present a memorable performance.  Of course, one of the most popular things about Hamilton is the music - a unique blend of hip-hop, jazz, R&B, and Broadway.  

Love Lin-Manuel Miranda?  Did you know he is the mind behind the memorable music of Moana?


I can't wait to FINALLY get to see Hamilton on July 3rd and bring a full review here.  The history teacher in me has always loved learning about Alexander Hamilton as his role in founding our country was immense and I've been curious to see how his story is portrayed on stage.  Who else is with me in celebrating Independence Day this year as Hamilton comes to life for us to enjoy?

Disney+ Series: It's A Dog's Life With Bill Farmer

It's A Dog's Life With Bill Farmer (Image from Disney+)

Ever wondered what it's like to take a look at the day in the life of some of the hardest working dogs in America?  Well, wonder no more.  Bill Farmer, the famed Disney legend and voice of some of our cartoon favorites like Pluto and Goofy, is taking Disney+ subscribers on a look at some of the jobs dogs do to help humans in their work.

Review of It's A Dog's Life With Bill Farmer



I watched the first episode and thought this was a cute show the whole family can enjoy.  In the episode, Bill first meets Eba, a dog in Washington State that sniffs out whale poop.  Yes, you read that right. . .whale poop.  Eba works with researchers to track whale poop which the researchers than analyze to learn more about the whales themselves.  While this may sound like a job that may be hard for young ones to conceptualize, the creators of It's A Dog's Life use cartoon depictions and phrases like "food in tummies" to make it something very accessible for kids to understand.  Bill's second stop on the first episode is a ranch where he meets sheep herding dogs.  Here he learns not only about the job they do, but how dogs are trained for this work.  Throughout the episode, Bill uses some of his cartoon voice talents to also add humor and enthusiasm for the work.  It's clear to see that he enjoys the company of these dogs and learning about them.  


My kids really enjoy any shows that include animals, but will especially enjoy this unusual look at how some dogs spend their days.  It's A Dog's Life With Bill Farmer is another great option for families to watch together on Disney+.  

About It's A Dog's Life with Bill Farmer (from Disney+)



The iconic voice of Goofy and Pluto for more than 30 years, Disney Legend Bill Farmer steps out from behind the microphone to meet his own favorite characters - dogs! Join Bill as he crosses the country meeting dogs doing all kinds of incredible jobs that make our lives better.

It's a Dog's Life With Bill Farmer is produced by Dog Tale Productions, Inc and GRB Entertainment, Inc. The series is executive produced by Bill Farmer, Jennifer Farmer, Steve Duval, Gary R. Benz and Phil Kruener.

Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian

Image from Disney+

When The Mandalorian came to Disney+, Star Wars fans were immediately mesmerized by this new storyline brought to life by the mind of Jon Favreau.  Once the last episode of season one of The Mandalorian aired, fans were immediately asking when they could have more.  Soon after, it was announced that season 2 of the popular series would be returning to Disney+ in the Fall of 2020.  But, if you're a fan of the The Mandalorian and can't wait for more Star Wars in your life, Disney+ is bringing you a new series in May 2020 that takes a behind-the-scenes look at making this series.  After watching the first episode of Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian, I'm hooked and look forward to learning more.

About Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian (from Disney+)




Disney GALLERY: THE MANDALORIAN is an eight-episode documentary series that pulls back the curtain on The Mandalorian. Each chapter explores a different facet of the first live-action Star Wars television show through interviews, behind the scenes footage, and roundtable conversations hosted by Jon Favreau.

Review of Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian

I dove right into the first episode, excited to learn more about what happened behind-the-scenes of this show.  The first episode focused on the story of the directors and, by the titles of upcoming episodes, it appears that each will look at a different facet of creating the story.  Jon Favreau leads roundtable discussions with the directors as they each share stories of how they came to the Star Wars universe.  It was fascinating to see how many talented minds and notable directors played a role in creating the first season.  Favreau chose to bring on several different directors to lend differing perspectives to the same vision.  

And that vision very clearly included the responsibility to the Star Wars fans.  Several of the directors including Deborah Chow and Bryce Dallas Howard spoke to the responsibility to do justice to the first Star Wars live action television show and working with characters that are so meaningful to so many people.  But the directors as brought their own personalities to the show as well.  Favreau, speaking of Taika Waititi said "Taika knows how to find the humor in the action," when looking at some memorable moments from the series like the "do the magic hand thing" line towards The Child.


If you're a fan of The Mandalorian and enjoy a look at what happens behind the camera in producing a show, this will definitely be something for you to enjoy on Disney+ and fill that gap until the next season airs this fall.  I was definitely intrigued by the first episode and will check out the remaining episodes as they release.  New episodes of Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian will release each Friday!

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Movie Review

Artemis Fowl Movie Review


Artemis Fowl - Image from Disney+

New movie releases continue to drop despite the closure of movie theaters an the latest one for family movie fans to enjoy is Disney's Artemis Fowl.  Artemis Fowl was scheduled for a theatrical release, had it's date pushed, and then moved to a Disney+ release when COVID-19 sent us into lockdown mode.  This movie has some serious star power for a straight to Disney+ streaming release including Colin Ferrell and Josh Gad in leading roles.  Artemis Fowl also has a built in fan base from the popular children's books.  But would it live up to it's promise?  

Artemis Fowl Movie Review


So, now it's time for my confession.  I didn't finish the book before seeing the movie.  And according to some of my friends like Patty and Tessa, maybe that's a good thing.  In the movie, we meet young Artemis Fowl - his mother has passed and his father travels away from Fowl Manor frequently on mysterious trips.  Young Artemis is a very intelligent and curious boy.  When his father disappears off of his super yacht in the South China Sea, Artemis receives a cryptic phone call demanding a mystical object - the Aculos - as ransom.  Artemis begins formulating a plan to save his father from his captors while also clearing his name a a criminal.  


What follows is a story of trolls, fairies, dwarves, and human lives intersecting into one big adventure.  I'll be honest. . .there were parts of the movie that I was confused about what was happening.  Books and movies with a lot of "fantasy" elements generally aren't among my favorites (I've never been a Harry Potter fan - shocking, right??) and the hodgepodge of characters was difficult for me to follow.  I felt like there were some serious plot holes that movie just glazes over.  For example, when Artemis' dad goes missing and Butler introduces him to the work his dad had been doing with fairies and this whole underground world, it all just clicks for Artemis.  No struggle, no questioning - just straight to work.  It wasn't for me and didn't hold the attention of my kids either who I think couldn't figure out what was going on.

The movie isn't BAD though. . .it's just not something I know I'd rush to watch again.  The bond between Artemis and Holly Short is endearing as is the way that Artemis cares for Butler.  He acts as someone with the soul of someone much older.  Despite the separation between the fairy world and the human world, there is a strong connection between the two and the fairies demonstrate more times than one their care for humanity. Josh Gad is also a highlight in this film. . .I mean, isn't he always?  His character, Mulch Diggums is funny and kept me hanging in when I wasn't sure about where the movie was heading.  Director Kenneth Branagh did a beautiful job visually creating the worlds of both Artemis and the fairies as the colors, scenery, and camera work is very well done.

Overall, I think this was a good call by Disney to release this movie straight to Disney+ instead of pushing the release date again in hopes of a big theatrical release post COVID-19.  The ending of the film certainly leaves it open for more adventures from Artemis to come.  After all, "I'm Artemis Fowl and I'm a criminal mastermind."

I've been reading Artemis Fowl in preparation for the movie and was excited to see that fans wouldn't have to wait for movie theaters to re-open before getting their fairy fix.  Disney+ will be releasing Artemis Fowl straight to streaming beginning June 12th, following in the footsteps of other family films Trolls World Tour and SCOOB which also decided to go the digital route rather than pushing opening dates.  Let's take a look at Artemis Fowl and see what we can expect.

Artemis Fowl Trailer Reaction




I don't know about anyone else, but my 8 year old is going to flip when Artemis Fowl lands on Disney+!  He is a big fan of spy movies and shows - particularly where kids are the stars.  The amount of technology and fantasy in here will certainly delight young fans.  And, for me?  Well, I'm a fan of anything with Josh Gad in it.  From what I've gathered too, the book series has some devoted fans which I'm sure are excited to tune into the screen adaptation of this popular book series.  I'm reading the book now so I can see how to the two compare once this is released.  Here's hoping this movie delivers on the promise of being an action-packed, yet family-friendly adventure!

Disneynature Dolphin Reef Review

Disneynature Dolphin Reef - Photo from Disney+

Disney+ released two new Disneynature films to celebrate Earth Month this April.  I don't know about you, but following these stay-at-home directives has me missing all of my travel so I decided to start with Dolphin Reef as it makes me think of my visits to the islands!


Disneynature’s Elephant & Dolphin Reef | Official Trailer | Disney+ 

Dolphin Reef is narrated by Natalie Portman and follows the life of Echo as he grows and plays near the reef.  But don't be fooled, this film showcases more than just dolphins - you'll be introduced to many different types of sea animals including whales, sharks, fish, etc. Like most of the Disneynature films, the story itself is not overly compelling.  In fact, I kind of forgot that there was an actual storyline going on during the film in various parts.  Then things get perilous for young Echo on his ocean adventure and I find myself on the edge of the seat to see if he'll be OK.  Also true to Disneynature movies, Dolphin Reef is visually stunning.  I mean, really gorgeous.  You'll feel like you've taken a beautiful vacation all while sitting on your couch during quarantine. 

Disneynature's Dolphin Reef is also a great way to squeeze a little education into your kid's day without them even knowing it!  For example, fun fact we learned watching this parrotfish poop sand.  Now where else would you learn that while social distancing??  Looking for more facts and activities to do with your family?  Disneynature has an accompanying educational guide with each of their films.  Dolphin Reef features a 67 page educational guide that you can find HERE

While the Disneynature films are definitely a different family movie night experience than you may experience with other content on Disney+, but I don't think you'd be disappointed in this choice.  Now I need to just start planning a trip to experience the beauty of the ocean again for as soon as we can start traveling again.

About Disneynature's Dolphin Reef


(From Disneynature) Narrated by Oscar and Golden Globe winning actress Natalie Portman, Disneynature's "Dolphin Reef" tells the spectacular story of Echo, a young Pacific bottlenose dolphin who seems far more interested in exploring the coral reef, and its intriguing inhabitants, than learning to survive in it.

Marvel Hero Project Celebrates Everyday Kid Heroes

So, you may notice a theme in my posts from The Geekly Retreat that talk about Disney+ shows and movies - and it's crying.  Seriously, by the end of Disney+ Day on the retreat, my face was puffy and my makeup had been completely washed off my face.  Many shows and movies will leave you feeling big emotions, and Marvel Hero Project is no different.

The Premise


During our screening, we had a chance to have the show introduced by Dan Silver, Disney+ Vice President of Non-Fiction Content.  The "origin story" of this series is just as sweet as the show itself.  The idea came from Silver's son while they were walking to see Spiderman: Homecoming.  His son was talking about kids that he knows as everyday heroes which brought the idea to Silver, who was working at Marvel at the time.  From there, the idea began taking shape.  The series selects a different kid in each episode who is doing incredible things.

This is definitely a show to watch with the whole family.  It's a perfect conversation starter on a number of topics - namely, to quote Walt himself, "it's kind of fun to do the impossible!" In the episode we saw, and others that I'm aware of, kids and their families have some definite challenges facing them, but they choose to not let anything hold them down.  Others highlight kids in tremendous acts of service to others.  They are stories of heart and perseverance with life lessons for all of us.  We have the ability to make the world a better place, one small act at a time!

At our screening, we were shown one of the episodes.  I'm not going to tell you which one or ruin any "plot points" for you so you can enjoy it with your family, but I will say to bring the tissues.  Maybe I'm just a big softie, or maybe it's being a mom, or maybe it's being an educator, but I love stories of incredible kids doing incredible things!  I cried along with the mom as she talked about coming to terms with her son's struggles and as she talked about his courage to overcome EVERY obstacle in front of him.  I cried with his coach as he talked about the inspiration he has been for the team.  And I cried as the gifted artists at Marvel turned his story into a one-of-a-kind comic book.  That's something cool they are doing for each story they feature on the series and families can read the comics online after watching each episode!

I can't wait to watch this with my kids.  While I think my 7 year old will enjoy it more than my 4 year old, I will certainly watch it with both of them so they can see the amazing stories of other kids!  Regardless of whether you are a Marvel fan or not, this is something you won't want to miss.

About Marvel Hero Project




In life, it doesn't take wearing a suit of iron, carrying a mythical hammer or swinging from spider webs to be a real hero.  Sometimes the person who can make a positive difference in the world is the person who simply sees a problem and has the passion to find a creative solution.  And in Marvel's Hero Project, the new Disney+ series, those people are kids.  Like the girl who helps loved ones  with Alzheimer's make connections through puzzles or a boy who grows an urban garden to feed the hungry, despite his family financial hardships.  The first non-scripted reality series from Marvel Entertainment takes an up close and personal look at the lives of twenty amazing kids from across the country, each of whom is doing remarkable things to help his or her community.  Each week, Marvel surprises these young heroes, who have dedicated themselves to performing selfless acts of bravery, kindness, and betterment, by welcoming them into Marvel's Hero Project, inspiring viewers of all ages.

Lady and The Tramp Review

Disney+ is just about to make it's debut and already it has gone to the dogs!  We all know that Disney's live action remakes have been knocking it out of the park (check out my reviews of Disney's Aladdin and The Lion King which also released in 2019), and with the release of Disney+ we find yet another live action remake that is set to rekindle our love of these classics!

Disney's animated Lady and the Tramp was released in 1955 - long before many of us were even born!  But the iconic story of two dogs from opposite sides of the city who find love over a meatball and some spaghetti is a timeless story that has been entertaining audiences for decades. Fans of the original will be happy to know that there are few changes to the storyline, and those changes only add to the storyline.  Let's take a look. . .

How it Compares to Original


There are many scenes in this remake that pull directly from the original and will tug at your heartstrings as you see them recreated with actual dogs.  I felt a deeper connection with the dogs during this film - in both times of joy and times of sadness.  When you watch Lady climb the steps and hop in Jim Dear and Darling's bed, you can almost feel her wet nose and soft fun snuggling up against you.  And as you watch the dog catcher chase Tramp through the streets, you're heart will race with nervous worry - even though you know how it ends!  There are a few small "tweaks" to some of the scenes as Lady and Tramp explore the city together, but they really don't add or detract from the original storyline in my opinion.

Besides the obvious change of creating the movie in a live action rendition, viewers will also find a more diverse cast in this remake.  As Disney continues to reimagine their classics, we have seen this trend and I think it's wonderful for casting to be more representative of all fans and viewers.  We'll dive into this topic, along with others in my post recapping the interview with Yvette Nicole Brown and Adrian Martinez who play Aunt Sarah and the Dog Catcher respectively.

Overall, I had much stronger emotions during this remake than I had with the classic animation and found myself crying at a few points during the film.  I think fans of the original will enjoy this movie and those of you who maybe didn't enjoy the classic should also give this one a chance too - it's worth the watch!

Kid Friendliness


While there is certainly nothing inappropriate about Lady and the Tramp, I think it's meant to be enjoyed by a slightly older audience.  My 4 year old has grown up with a mom who loves Disney movies and has watched a lot of live action and animation Disney films in his short life.  He would probably enjoy the film, but I don't know that it would hold the attention of all young kids the same way.

The only other caution I would give to parents with young children about the movie is that emotional connection I felt was stronger in this film.  I think it's easier in a cartoon to distance yourselves from the characters and the situations, but it is much harder when you're watching a live action movie.  When Aunt Sarah takes Lady to get a muzzle, it's heartbreaking to watch as is the scene at the dog pound when you see the dogs locked in cages and sad.  Those very raw emotions can be a lot to process for some kids.  In fact, I think my 7 year old may have a harder time watching this film for that reason than my 4 year old who may not fully process what is happening with the animals.

About The Film





In Disney+'s "Lady and the Tramp," a timeless re-telling of the 1955 animated classic, a pampered house dog and a tough but lovable stray embark on an unexpected adventure and, despite their differences, grow closer and come to understand the value of home.  Life is good for Lady, an overachieving American Cocker Spaniel who resides in an upscale suburban neighborhood.  Her owners, Jim Dear and Darling, spoil her daily and her neighbors, Jock, an outspoken Scottish Terrier and Trusty, a world-weary Bloodhound, are always within barking distance.  But when a baby enters the picture, Lady is no longer the center of attention, and the arrival of cat-loving Aunt Sarah only complicates matters.  Lady soon finds herself alone on the streets in an unwelcoming part of town.  Fortunately, Tramp steps in, and the streetwise mongrel is quick to teach her the ways of the world.  Before long, the prim and proper pure bred and the fast-talking mutt are partaking in moonlit strolls in the park and romantic spaghetti dinners by candlelight.  Tramp savors the independence of a world without leashes or fences alongside his roguish friends Peg and Bull, but Lady misses the comfort and safety of a family, and soon both must decide where - and with whom - they belong.  A heartwarming romantic adventure that seamlessly combines live action and photorealism animation, "Lady and the Tramp" stars: Tessa Thompson as the voice of Lady and Justin Theroux as the voice of Tramp; Kiersey Clemons as Darling; Thomas Mann as Jim Dear; Janelle Monae as the voice of Peg; Yvette Nicole Brown as Aunt Sarah; and Sam Elliott as the voice of Trusty.  The film is directed by Charlie Bean from a screenplay by Andrew Bujalski and Kari Granlund, and is produced by Brigham Taylor with Diane L. Sabatini serving as executive producer.

At Home Pirate Day Family Fun

Have a pirate day of fun!

Looking to bring a little magic to a day at home?  I love creating Disney themed days for my kids and thought I would share my latest one here.  We're all missing the magic of Disney right now so we took advantage of some of our leftover goodies from our recent Disney Cruise Line vacation to plan a pirate themed day at home.  Here are a few ideas to recreate your own pirate experience with your little buccaneers.

Pirate Costumes 


We started off the day getting dressed in our pirate-y best.  On our recent Disney Cruise Line vacation on the Disney Dream, our whole family had makeovers at The Pirate's League on Pirate Night.  I saved all of our take home items - sashes, bandanas, eye patches, swords, etc. - and we used them to get dressed up.

Read more about The Pirate's League on Disney Cruise Line here!


If you don't have pirate costumes at your house, see how creative you can get.  Do you have any material you could use to make your own bandanas?  Can the kids draw their own swords on a recycled box and cut it out?  You could even cover it in aluminum foil to make it look more real! And don't forget, eye makeup can easily give a few pirate touches to anyone's face.

Pirate Activities


While we are social distancing / learning from home, coming up with educational activities during the day was a must.  My youngest son who is in Pre-K chose a Jake and the Neverland Pirates book from his collection to read with me that day.  We laughed at silly Captain Hook and Mr. Smee while counting Gold Doubloons with Jake and his crew.  For my older son in second grade, he found a book about pirates in one of his reading collections online from his school that he read independently.  We also practiced some pirate-y problem solving skills with this scavenger hunt that I found on Pinterest.  The boys LOVED it and have been begging me for more activities like this.  Of course, not ALL of our learning activities were pirate themed, but I did the best I could to add a little swashbuckling adventure to the day.  There are tons of pirate themed craft ideas online too that a quick s

Pirate Themed Dinner & A Movie


We wrapped up the night with an easy dinner from under the sea.  With kid favorites like fish sticks and popcorn shrimp, it was an easy crowd pleaser.  We also decided to break the rules a bit and do dinner in the living room while we watched Pirates of the Caribbean on Disney+.  If you're not sure if your kids are old enough for pirate stories starring Johnny Depp, you can end your pirate day with Jake and the Neverland Pirates.  I'm not sure about you, but I think he is one of the most underrated pirates out there and I'm so glad we can watch him again on Disney+ since he stopped airing on Disney Junior!

For more information on educational and fun content on Disney+, check this out!


So that's it!  A few easy ways to add some pirate fun to your stay-at-home day with kids.  I was able to pull this off with just the things I had on hand at the house, so it was simple, but fun.  If you try out your own pirate night, be sure to tag me on Twitter and Instagram @dsnyrunrgrl so I can "sea" your adventures!  Ahoy!!

Get in the Christmas Spirit with Noelle

Who doesn't love a family friendly Christmas movie that gives us a glimpse of what it's like to be a Kringle?  For generations, movies have been made that pull back the curtain on the mystery of Santa Claus and his family, and Disney's Noelle puts an original twist on the family life of St. Nick.  Warning - I both laughed out loud and ugly cried in this movie far more than I expected which is the sign of an outstanding movie in my opinion!  Seriously, you'll want to keep reading this and then grab your yogurt pants (you'll get it when you see the movie!) and your hot chocolate with extra whipped cream and peppermint to watch this with the whole family.

Recap of the Movie


The movie begins introducing us to Santa's kids, Noelle and Nick.  When Santa passes away, it's everyone's expectation that Nick (Bill Hader) take over for his father.  Noelle (Anna Kendrick) is there to support her brother every step of the way as her Christmas cheer is infectious.  As his first Christmas nears, Nick is overwhelmed and questions his ability to handle the job.  Noelle encourages him to take a weekend getaway to clear his mind, but when Nick doesn't return, the North Pole goes into panic mode.  What happens when Santa goes missing and Christmas is just around the corner?  Panic sets in and Noelle's tech-savvy cousin, Gabriel (Billy Eichner), is named as the replacement Santa.  Realizing her duty to her brother, and really the world, to bring the real Santa back home, Noelle leaves the North Pole for the first time with her nanny, Elf Polly (Shirley MacLaine), and heads to Phoenix, Arizona.  What follows is a series of hilarious events that teach Noelle more about the true meaning of Christmas than she can even imagine.  Seriously, Anna Kendrick is delightfully jolly as Noelle Kringle and her enthusiasm for the holiday season will easily come across the screen to everyone who watches.

Why Families Will Love It


Where do I even begin with this?  Let's first talk about messages that you'll walk away with from the film.  There is a big overarching look at expectations - both from society and from your family.  Nick is expected to become Santa because he's Santa's son.  No one stops to ask Nick if that's what he wants.  I don't want to give any spoilers here, but I'll just throw it out there that Nick isn't the only one struggling with this battle of what he wants and what is expected of him.  Learning to stand up for what you want and what you believe is a hard thing for all of us.

Noelle also grapples with the fact that the holidays can be a hard time for some kids.  As an educator, I loved that a Christmas movie shows that the holiday season isn't always perfection and lots of gifts and big families gathered under the tree singing carols together.  In the film we follow a young boy going through his first Christmas following the divorce of his parents as well as a young girl is living in shelter with her mom over the holiday season because they've lost their house.  I'm a big proponent of movies that show kids they are not alone is struggling with hard things at home and I think this is also a great reminder for kids who may be tied up in wanting the latest and greatest gadgets to be reminded what some of these kids in the movie wish for as their "present" this Christmas.  The idea of Christmas traditions changing as families evolve is also present throughout the film.  Most of my ugly crying happened during these scenes by the way.

At the end of the day, this is a family holiday movie that will leave you feeling all the feels.  It's certainly one that kids of all ages can enjoy right alongside of their parents.  Even young children who would miss most of these bigger themes I've been talking about will delight in the bright colors, fun music, and jolly holiday spirit.  Thank garland that Disney+ has brought us this film for the holidays!!

About Disney's Noelle




In Disney+'s holiday comedy, "Noelle," Kris Kringle's daughter is full of Christmas spirit and holiday fun, but wishes she could do something "important" like her beloved brother Nick, who will take over for their father this Christmas.  When Nick is about to crumble like a gingerbread cookie from all the pressure, Noelle suggests he take a break and get away. . .but when he doesn't return, Noelle must find her brother and bring him back in time to save Christmas.  The sudden disappearance of the new Santa (Bill Vader) leads to chaos in the North Pole, so Mrs. Kringle (Julie Hagerty) must step up to rein in the hi-tech replacement Santa, Cousin Gabs (Billy Eichner).  Meanwhile, Noelle and Elf Polly (Shirley MacLaine), the family's acerbic but good-hearted nanny, are down South on a search-and-recover mission, during which Noelle (Anna Kendrick) comes to realize she has much in common with her father and begins to understand the true meaning of Christmas.  Written and directed by Marc Lawrence, "Noelle" stars Anna Kendrick, Bill Vader, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Billy Eichner, Julie Hagerty and Shirley MacLaine.  The film is produced by Suzanne Todd with John G. Scotti serving as executive producer.

At Home Summer Fun - The Summer of COVID

Image from Sunshine Whispers DIY Summer Camp

I don't know about life in your house, but it doesn't quite feel like the same summer were used to for my family.  Typically the end of the school year is met with a celebration and time to start heading to beaches, theme parks, and pools.  Things are starting to reopen around the country, but life is far from back to normal.  With phrases like "safer at home" being the norm now, here's a wrap up post of fun things to do around the house with your kids if your usual summer plans are derailed.

Do-It-Yourself Summer Camp



Summer camps seem to be all over the place this year with some having their programs cancelled and others operating with new guidelines in place.  We're kind of in a hybrid situation in our household.  Our summer camp / daycare option isn't cancelled, but we're not super keen on sending the kids if we don't have to do so.  And right now, working from home is still a reality so we've got the kids at home - at least to start the summer.  That means that we're looking for LOTS to keep them entertained.  Here are some links that you may enjoy if you're planning your own "summer camp" at home:

  • DIY Summer Camp Printables - My friend Sara who has a Facebook group you can find called Kid Friendly Maryland has designed a "Summer Camp Bundle" printable that you can purchase and download to create your own themed summer camp weeks.  Her outlines and ideas included make it super easy to customize for your family.  (Affiliate Link)

  • At Home Play from Port Discovery - My friends over at Port Discovery Children's Museum in Baltimore have been providing fun content throughout this stay-at-home time including science experiments, readings, family activities and more.  Check out ALL of the fun they have for FREE here.

  • Have a Movie Inspired Day - I created a Pirate Day for our boys back in March when all of this started and put together ideas in a post.  I see more of this in our future and already have a Toy Story day planned soon that I'll share!

What to Watch


There are so many great things to watch right now for families and some new releases bypassed theaters and came out in recent weeks that you may have missed.  Here are some of my favorites we've been watching lately that you may also want to check out:

  • Disney+ Roundup - Did you know that Disney+ is home to not only fun, but also educational content?  Check out some of my favorites we've been tuning into for a little taste of both over the past several weeks.

  • Sonic The Hedgehog - This movie has consistently been at the top of Digital Entertainment Guide's list of most viewed movies each week.  It's easy to see why!  With appeal to parents who grew up playing Sonic on our SEGA Genesis systems to the kids who will enjoy the action and humor, there's something for everyone in this film.

  • SCOOB! - My boys LOVED this movie. . .and they weren't Scooby Doo people to begin with.  There's a great overarching lesson on friendship and lots of comedic action along the way!

  • Think Like a Dog - So this movie isn't getting the respect it deserves in my opinion.  I haven't seen much advertising this like the direct to streaming releases of Trolls and SCOOB!, but this is a new movie from Lionsgate and again was a big hit with our boys.  The concept of being able to communicate with your dog is something I think every kid (and some adults) dream of and, with lots of heartwarming family moments along the way, this movie is a true feel-good option.

Bring a Vacation Destination to You


If you're a little hesitant to venture out, why not bring a vacation destination to you?  During COVID-19 closures, family vacation destinations were quick to share many ways to bring the fun to you.  Here are two of my favorites that I found:


  • Hershey, PA - Roller coasters in your living room?  Why not! Check out Hersheypark's famed roller coasters, relax with some sweet coloring pages, and try a recipe for Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Brownies. . .yeah, they're as good as they sound!  

  • Great Wolf Lodge - We loved visiting Great Wolf Lodge last year and I was excited to see them bringing some fun family activities to your house including their popular Yoga Tails! 

With so many things to enjoy at home, summer just got a lot brighter!  Enjoy!

The queen of social distancing, Elsa, and the entire Arendelle crew is now available in Frozen 2 on Disney digital and on Disney+.  Today, I'm excited to share with you FREE coloring pages and activities to share with the whole family!

Frozen 2 became the number one animated movie of all time with it's blockbuster success and appeal to Frozen fans, both young and old.  I also think it's the perfect film for families to watch during tough times.  All of the characters are grappling with big emotions - fear, frustration, anger, questioning what they've been taught - and it provides a great back drop to have a conversation with your own kids about things going on in the world that they may not understand.  Even if kids don't fully understand WHAT is happening in the world, they certainly have feelings about it.  A family movie night is a great way to blend conversation with fun in your household.  Before we look at how to have a Frozen family fun night at home, check out my complete coverage of Frozen 2:

  • Go on a Scavenger Hunt - Frozen 2 takes us Into the Unknown, but you can search the familiar with a new perspective by having a family scavenger hunt while walking in your neighborhood.  Depending on the ages of your children, you can make the items easy or hard.  For real young kids, you can have them look for things of various colors, while older kids may be able to find more specific items like types of birds or flowers.  Spring is a great time to get outside!

In “Frozen 2,” she must hope they are enough. From the Academy Award®-winning team—directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck, producer Peter Del Vecho and songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez—and featuring the voices of Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell, Jonathan Groff and Josh Gad.

Frozen 2 is now available for digital purchase and is currently streaming on Disney+!

Meet the Villains of Lady and The Tramp

Following our screening of Disney's new live action remake of Lady and The Tramp, I had the opportunity with my fellow attendees of The Geekly Retreat to sit down with Yvette Nicole Brown (Aunt Sarah) and Adrian Martinez (Elliott) to talk about working with the furry stars of the film, their characters, and diversity in the film. These two were delightful and full of enthusiasm to share their perspective on a reimagining of this classic Disney film.

About Working with the Dogs


Both Brown and Martinez had nothing but wonderful things to say about working with their four-legged co-stars.  They each talked about the difficulty of being the "villain" to these sweet dogs.  Because their characters had to be so mean to the animals during filming, they spent some extra quality time playing with the dogs when the cameras weren't rolling so they knew not to really be fearful of Brown and Martinez.  Brown in fact was so moved during the film, that she adopted a dog herself to bring some of that puppy love home!

Their Characters


It may seem that a villain is a one-dimensional "bad guy" character that is just out to ruin lives.  However, the conversation we had with Brown and Martinez shed a different light on the villains from Lady and The Tramp.  Martinez talked about his character being "misunderstood."  He was a dutiful civil servant who truly felt like he was doing what needed to be done to keep the citizens of the city safe from wild and dangerous animals.  Brown also talked about the complexity of Aunt Sarah.  On the outside, it's easy to write her off as a cruel, cold woman, but when you look closer you see her doting on her niece and genuinely enthusiastic about the new arrival.  One of the lines that humanizes Aunt Sarah most was actually an ad lib by Brown.  In this version of the film, Jim Dear and Darling actually take Lulu with them when Aunt Sarah comes to housesit.  You can clearly see the hurt and disappointment in Aunt Sarah's eyes as the young couple races out of the door with their baby as soon as she arrives when Brown says "I didn't even get to hold her."  Looking at her through the lens of someone who is lonely and hurting, it becomes easier to relate to her character.  Those cats in the film though. . .they're just mean and manipulative if you want my opinion!

Diversity in the Film


One of the things that stands out about this film is the diverse casting.  As Disney has been re-imagining films for a live action reboot, this seems to be a trend. . .and it is very welcome and refreshing to see.  Both Martinez and Brown talked about the film's obligation to represent the world we live in and hopefully seeing this as a step towards the new normal.  Brown shares that "I think every child, no matter their race, or their sexual orientation. . .deserves to see someone that looks like them."  When asked how critics may respond to re-imagining some favorite Disney films, Brown points out that "there's enough love in our hearts to enjoy the 1955 classic and the 2019 classic" and notes that they don't need to cancel each other out.

Want to know more about Disney's Lady and The Tramp which is streaming on Disney+?  Check out my review and then tune in for yourself to see Yvette Nicole Brown, Adrian Martinez, and other terrific actors - both on two legs and four! - light up the screen in this remake of a film that has been delighting viewers for over 60 years.
