A Closer Look at Pepita and Dante from COCO

A Closer Look at Pepita and Dante from COCO

During my trip to San Francisco to learn about PIXAR's newest movie, COCO, I also learned about Alebrijes, which are part of the Mexican culture.  They are animals that are a mix of a bunch of animals.  In the story of COCO, we meet Pepita. She's a colorful Alebrije who is a bit of tiger, ram, eagle and lizard.  She is beautiful and is an important charactor in the movie.  She helps to guide us through the Land of the Dead. Alebrijes are beautiful in color and a bit crazy!  We had the chance to paint our own Pepita and it was a lot of fun.  I didn't do nearly as good as a job as PIXAR did in COCO, but it was fun trying. Another important animal in the movie COCO is Dante.  He is Miguel's...

5 Fun Facts about COCO which is in Theaters Thanksgiving!

You may recall that in August I went to San Francisco to learn about a new PIXAR movie COCO.  We viewed the first 30 minutes of the movie and since then I'm been anxious to see the rest.  I really enjoyed it and it pulled me in and I can't wait to hear more! COCO is about Dia de los Muertos, which was something I knew very little about.  After talking with the writers and directors about Dia de los Muertos and COCO, I now have a much better understanding of this special day in Mexico and I actually love the idea behind it! Here are some facts about COCO I thought you might like to know.  Hopefully they will peek your interest and you'll go see it in November! COCO began with 5 years of...

The Jungle Book was originally made in 1967. I saw it years ago when I was a little girl, but the songs are still in my head many years later.

On the Set of Liv and Maddie and Exclusive Look at Andy Grammer’s Special Appearance

Disclosure: I received an all expense paid trip to Los Angeles California for the #LiveAndMaddieEvent and #AntManEvent Press Junket. While in LA last month I had the chance to stop by the set of Liv and Maddie, one of my girl's favorite shows.  I will admit, I've sat and watched the show a few times but I've probably 'heard' every episode in the background while doing other things.  So you could say I'm very familiar with it.  We watched a little bit of rehearsal, which was cool,  and then had a quick interview with the cast.   They were all hilarious and after talking to them, I loved the show even more! The Disney Channel's Liv and Maddie is about the Rooney Family and stars Dove Cameron...
