At the beginning of this year, when I got a sneak peek at all of the blockbuster films that were going to be released by Walt Disney Studios in 2016, “QUEEN OF KATWE” was one that particularly intrigued me. I LOVE Lupita Nyong’o and just think she is beyond beautiful and is such a talented actress. “QUEEN OF KATWE” is the vibrant true story of a young girl from the streets of rural Uganda whose world rapidly changes when she is introduced to the game of chess and, as a result of the support she receives from her family and community, is instilled with the confidence and determination she needs to pursue her dream of becoming an international chess champion. The powerful film, also stars David Oyelowo and newcomer Madina Nalwanga and is directed by Mira Nair. It’s set to be released in theaters this September 23!
Have you seen the Walt Disney Animation Studios’ comedy-adventure, “Zootopia” yet? Actually I should ask how many times you’ve seen it? (We’ve seen it three times!) This hilarious family film has broken records worldwide earning more than $900 million at the global box office to date and was named the best reviewed movie of 2016.
Critics and audiences around the world have fallen in love with the wonderfully innovative animal metropolis of “Zootopia” and the comedic chemistry of rookie rabbit officer Judy Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin) and scam-artist fox Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman). The voice cast of “Zootopia” is epic. We rushed out immediately after seeing it and bought a bunch of Tsum Tsums to make this cute little stop-motion video on my daughter’s Musical.ly account.
Well great news…it arrives home on Digital HD, Blu-ray™, Disney Movies Anywhere, DVD and On-Demand (does not include bonus) platforms June 7, 2016, viewers will not only be able to enjoy the vibrant world of Zootopia and reunite with their favorite characters, but also discover more about the evolution of this extraordinary tale through in-depth bonus offerings. Features include:
candid conversations with filmmakers and artists behind Zootopia,
an alternate opening
never-before-seen characters and deleted scenes
a sneak peek at some of the hidden Easter Eggs that make reference to Disney Animation’s most beloved films and characters.
Bonus features include*:
BLU-RAY 3D, BLU-RAY & DIGITAL HD:
Zoology: The Roundtables: Ginnifer Goodwin hosts an in-depth look at the movie’s characters, animation, environments and more. The artists at Disney Animation give a rare and in-depth look at the complexities of bringing an all-animal world to life from the ground-breaking technology behind the characters’ fur and clothing to the varied and vast environments of Tundratown, Sahara Square and the Rainforest District as well as the deep thought and research given to bringing 64 unique animal species to life through animation.
The Origin of an Animal Tale: Follow the story’s development from its origins to a big story shift that turned the film upside down. In this feature-length documentary, filmmakers give a candid look into the difficulties of creating the story of Zootopia and the bold decision to switch the main character late in the production process, putting one resolute rabbit center stage.
Research: A True-Life Adventure: The filmmakers traveled the globe to find inspiration for the diverse characters and amazing city of Zootopia. They reflect on the importance of research and how a deep dive into animal behavior at Disney Animal Kingdom theme park and a deep immersion into animal society on the African savanna shaped and inspired the characters of Zootopia and changed the filmmakers’ lives forever.
Z.P.D. Forensic Files: Find the movie’s hidden Easter Eggs. Every city has its hidden gems, especially when it has been created by the filmmakers of Disney Animation who love nothing more than sprinkling hidden references to some of Disney’s greatest animated features throughout the story.
Scoretopia: Academy Award®-winning composer, Michael Giacchino spotlights five of cinema’s greatest percussionists and how they brought an organic, animalistic sound to his powerful and emotional music score.
Deleted Characters: Directors Byron Howard and Rich Moore introduce citizens of Zootopia who did not make the final cut.
Alternate Opening: Young Judy Hopps rescues a fellow classmate and realizes she can reach beyond a life in carrot farming to a future in law enforcement.
Wild Times! Pitch: Nick desperately pitches the bankers of Zootopia on funding Wild Times!, an amusement park made exclusively for the predators of Zootopia and a sure-fire, money-making scheme for Nick and his friends.
Alternate Homesick Hopps: After a frustrating first day on the force, Judy has a conversation with her parents. See how this scene changed from a heartfelt conversation with her parents to tough love when her parents discover their daughter is only a meter maid and not a “real cop.”
Detective Work: Judy borrows a fellow police officer’s computer to conduct research, which turns out to be no small task.
Alternate Jumbo Pop: In this early version of the story where Nick was the main character, the filmmakers and Jason Bateman were able to take hustling to a new level.
Hopps’ Apartment: When Judy’s entire family pays her a surprise visit they are shocked to discover the company she’s keeping.
The Taming Party: In this emotional clip from an early version of “Zootopia,” Judy attends her first “taming party” and gains a deeper understanding of the plight of the predator.

Last week, I shared the exciting news about Disney’s first Latina-inspired Princess, “Elena of Avalon” who will be making her debut this summer in a TV series on Disney Channel. “Elena of Avalor” follows the story of Elena, a brave and adventurous teenager who saves her kingdom from an evil sorceress and must now learn to rule as crown princess until she is old enough to be queen. Elena’s adventures will lead her to understand that her new role requires thoughtfulness, resilience and compassion, the traits of all truly great leaders. Aimee Carrero (Freeform’s “Young & Hungry”) stars as the voice of Elena.
This week, there’s more news about “Elena of Avalor” and the gowns that she’ll be wearing. Disney has collaborated with Project Runway All Stars’ Layana Aguilar to design the ballgown for Elena of Avalor, Best known as a fan-favorite contestant on Project Runway (Season 11) and Project Runway All Stars (Season 5), Layana Aguilar has gone on to create her own successful brand including a contemporary womenswear label designed to celebrate the many roles that women play in their day-to-day lives while owning their individuality and feeling empowered, and has designed for top celebrities such as Beyoncé, Heidi Klum, Dascha Polanco and others.
This is an image of the ballgown that she designed, which also served as the inspiration for the dress that Elena will wear at Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort when she begins making appearances later this year. At Walt Disney World Resort, Elena will appear in the Magic Kingdom beginning in August. At Disneyland Resort, she will appear at Disney California Adventure this fall. I cannot wait to see it all come to life!
