You guys!! I’m beyond thrilled to share that I’m headed back to LA for another fun press trip! This time I’ll be covering Doctor Strange from Marvel Studios, Finding Dory which will be releasing on Blu-ray, and ABC Network’s Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After!
As a Marvel-loving family, I’m pumped to be covering Doctor Strange. I have to admit though – this is one character I’m not too familiar with, so I’ll be doing my homework! Are there any Doctor Strange fans out there that want to share some tips? 🙂
More on Doctor Strange:
Marvel’s Doctor Strange stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Rachel McAdams, and that means I may possibly be interviewing both actors! More details on who exactly we’ll be interviewing coming soon. Here’s a bit more about the film, releasing in theaters everywhere November 4th:
Marvel Studios’ “Doctor Strange” follows the story of world-famous neurosurgeon Dr. Stephen Strange who, in his quest for healing after a horrific car accident, discovers powerful magic in a mysterious place known as Kamar-Taj—the front line of a battle against unseen dark forces bent on destroying our reality.
Check out the film trailer below:
Finding Dory was a smash hit for Disney Pixar, and will soon be releasing on Digital HD (on 10/25) and Blu-ray (on 11/15). This was one of our family’s favorite movies of 2016, so I’m looking forward to covering this event! By the way, you can make your kiddos this adorable sea creature themed lunch inspired by Finding Dory!
About Finding Dory:
Disney•Pixar’s “Finding Dory” welcomes back to the big screen everyone’s favorite forgetful blue tang Dory (voice of Ellen DeGeneres), who’s living happily in the reef with Nemo (voice of Hayden Rolence) and Marlin (voice of Albert Brooks). When Dory suddenly remembers that she has a family out there who may be looking for her, the trio takes off on a life-changing adventure across the ocean to California’s prestigious Marine Life Institute, a rehabilitation center and aquarium. In an effort to find her mom (voice of Diane Keaton) and dad (voice of Eugene Levy), Dory enlists the help of three of the MLI’s most intriguing residents: Hank (voice of Ed O’Neill), a cantankerous octopus who frequently gives employees the slip; Bailey (voice of Ty Burrell), a beluga whale who is convinced his biological sonar skills are on the fritz; and Destiny (voice of Kaitlin Olson), a nearsighted whale shark. Deftly navigating the complex innerworkings of the MLI, Dory and her friends discover the magic within their flaws, friendships and family.

I am super excited to share that while in LA I’ll have the opportunity to meet Ben Higgins and his fiance Lauren Bushnell from season 20’s “The Bachelor.” They have a new reality series on Freeform called Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After. It will premiere on 10/11 at 8/7c.

In addition to all three of these fabulous events, Disney Channel has invited our exclusive group of bloggers to an advanced screening of MECH-X4! Afterwards we’ll chat with the cast and creators of the new show.

When his talent mysteriously awakens a giant 150-foot robot known as MECH-X4, Ryan recruits his two best friends and older brother to help him operate MECH-X4 to defend against monsters that suddenly begin to descend upon their city.
Oh and something else worth mentioning is Marvel Studios brand new Hero Acts campaign!
