Watch the Final Toy Story 4 Trailer!

This is not a sponsored post. All opinions are my own. 

I can’t even remember how long it’s been since I’ve been anticipating the arrival of “Toy Story 4”? I just know it’s been a long time coming. Personally, I have so many mixed feelings about this film. It feels like the end of an era and I just don’t know if I’m ready for that.Wasn’t it just yesterday that we were all introduced to Buzz, Woody, Jessie?  I literally can’t throw away any of my daughter’s toys since parts 2 & 3 came out.  I just don’t want the whole Toy Story series to be over and I’m going to be an emotional mess in the theater! With that being said, I absolutely adore “Sporky”! He’s the cutest addition to the cast and I can’t wait to see how his character plays out. Bo Peep, on the other hand, has me curious. She doesn’t seem like the nicest….I was excited to watch the “Toy Story 4” final trailer today. Have you watched it yet? Here it is:

“Toy Story 4” opens in U.S. theaters on June 21, 2019. Are you as excited to see it as I am?

Disney’s Christopher Robin Now on Blu-ray™, DVD and Digital

I received promotional items in exchange for this post. All opinions are my own. 
Disney’s “Christopher Robin,” the wondrous, live-action film in which Winnie the Pooh and friends venture into mid-century London to help grown-up Christopher Robin (Ewan McGregor), has arrived on Digital and Movies Anywhere and on Blu-ray™ and DVD with captivating, behind-the-scenes extras. The fun-filled tale features A.A. Milne’s timeless characters from the Hundred Acre Wood — Pooh, Tigger, Piglet, Eeyore, Kanga, Roo, Rabbit and Owl — making their first appearance as three-dimensional characters who remind Christopher Robin, and viewers of all ages, to appreciate the simple pleasures in life.I love that this film is an new take on the Winnie the Pooh stories I grew up knowing and loving. It takes me back to the imaginative, carefree days of my childhood and allows me to share my love of Pooh and friends with my own daughter now, but in a different way. 

“When you are able to make people laugh and cry in the same movie and you are able to tell the story with integrity and ground it in reality and have the magic realism on top of it, it lifts your spirits and connects you with the people you love.  We could all use a little bit of Pooh’s heart and wisdom right now.” – Marc Forster, director

Grab the Tissues! The Toy Story 4 Teaser Trailer is Here!

This is not a sponsored post. All opinions are my own. 

The Toy Story 4 Teaser Trailer was released today and is slated to debut with “Ralph Breaks the Internet” (in theaters Nov. 21) I’m gonna need a CASE of tissues when this Toy Story 4 hits theaters on June 21, 2019! Just when we all thought Toy Story 3 was the end of the story, here comes more.Woody and the rest of the toys are back for an all-new adventure, welcoming new friends to Bonnie’s room, including a reluctant new toy called Forky. Toy Story 3 was the end of Woody’s story with Andy, but just like in life, every ending is a new beginning. Woody now being in a new room, with new toys, and a new kid, was something we have never seen before. The questions of what that would be like became the beginning of an entertaining story worth exploring.But Forky insists that he is NOT a toy! An actual spork-turned-craft-project, Forky is pretty sure that he doesn’t belong in Bonnie’s room. Unfortunately, every time he tries to get away, someone yanks him back into an adventure he’d rather skip.

“The world of Toy Story is built upon the idea that everything in the world has a purpose, A toy’s purpose is to be there for its child. But what about toys that are made out of other objects? Forky is a toy that Bonnie made out of a disposable spork, so he’s facing a crisis. He wants to fulfill his purpose as a spork, but now has a new toy purpose thrust upon him.” – Josh Cooley, Director

Well, here’s the teaser trailer. So watch it!

Toy Story 4 will be in theaters on June 21, 2019! I can’t wait for summer! For the latest updates on this film, follow #ToyStory4 on social!

When zombies are finally allowed to enroll in Seabrook High School, the charming, charismatic zombie Zed, who is determined to play football, meets freshman Addison who dreams of being a cheerleader — the ultimate form of status in Seabrook.
