Friends, thanks to your readership and online support, Healthy Frugal Living (previously known as Debt Free Spending) has received our 3rd invitation to share exclusive Disney pixie dust with you! We were selected as one of the top 25 Bloggers to take you along to San Francisco for the release of Disney/Pixar’s CARS 3, the new Disneynature film BORN IN CHINA and the new ABC toy-competition series THE TOY BOX!
We are so excited to take you along our incredible adventure that includes Pixar Animation Studios and the Sonoma Raceway!
Here is a sneak peek at our tentative schedule of events:
A reception at Pixar Animation Studios with footage from CARS 3 (opening in theatres on 6/16)
A screening of the short film LOU (Pixar short that appears before Cars 3)
A press day at the Sonoma Raceway for CARS 3 including:
- interviews with Director Brian Fee, Producer Kevin Reher and various animators,
- take a lap around the racetrack in a real racecar,
- learn how to quickly change out a tire at a pit stop and go on a tour of the garage
Attend a screening of the upcoming Disneynature film BORN IN CHINA (opening in theatres on 4/21)
Catch a sneak peek at the upcoming animated series “Puppy Dog Pals“. Premiering April 2017, the series features two 11-minute stories that showcase Bingo and Rolly’s similarities and differences and demonstrate positive lessons about friendship, problem-solving, collaboration, creativity and adventure. Following the screening, Sean Coyle (executive producer) and Diane Ikemiyashiro (Disney Junior creative executive) will participate in a Q&A.
Back to Pixar Animation Studio:
- to learn all about Pixar in a Box (http://pixarinabox.org/)
- attend a special screening of the series premiere episode of “The Toy Box”
ABC’s new show, “The Toy Box” is the ultimate toy-competition series, which will provide talented designers with the chance of a lifetime: an opportunity to bring their toy concept to life with industry-giant Mattel and to the shelves of Toys ”R” Us the day after the series finale. Inventors present their toy concepts to a group of mentors that include Pixar Creative Director of Consumer Products Jen Tan, who will be available for an exclusive Q&A after the screening. The eight-episode series hosted by Eric Stonestreet (“Modern Family”) premieres on Friday, April 7th at 8/7c on ABC.
Make sure to keep following along, and we will post regular updates as they occur.
