I am sharing the following information courtesy of Walt Disney Studios. No compensation was received for this post and all opinions expressed are my own. 

This one looks like it's going to be great! How ugly/cute are all these little creatures! Another one to add to my list of must-see movies in 2015.

In Theaters January 23
Check out the poster and movie trailer for STRANGE MAGIC

“Strange Magic,” a new animated film from Lucasfilm Ltd., is a madcap fairy tale musical inspired by “A Midsummer Night's Dream.” Popular songs from the past six decades help tell the tale of a colorful cast of goblins, elves, fairies and imps, and their hilarious misadventures sparked by the battle over a powerful potion. Lucasfilm Animation Singapore and Industrial Light & Magic bring to life the fanciful forest turned upside down with world-class animation and visual effects. Directed by Gary Rydstrom (“Toy Story Toons: Hawaiian Vacation,” “Lifted”) from a story by George Lucas, “Strange Magic” will be released by Touchstone Pictures on Jan. 23, 2015. 

Cast: Alan Cumming, Evan Rachel Wood, Kristin Chenoweth, Maya Rudolph, Sam Palladio, Meredith Anne Bull, Alfred Molina, Elijah Kelley, Bob Einstein, Peter Stormare

I am sharing this information courtesy of Walt Disney Studios. No compensation of any kind was received for this post and all opinions expressed are my own.

If you're looking for something fun to do during the holiday break, why not take in a good movie.

INTO THE WOODS is now playing in theaters everywhere. This movie, which has been nominated for 3 Golden Globes including Best Picture, Best Actress Emily Blunt and Best Supporting Actress Meryl Streep, is rated PG and something I think the entire family can enjoy.

Check out the INTO THE WOODS movie trailer and some fun facts about the film and then let me know if you're as excited to see it as I am...


 Filmmaking Facts

- Production on “Into the Woods” began in September, 2013 at Shepperton Studios and on locations throughout England.

- Stephen Sondheim has received eight Tony® Awards, more than any other composer in history. He has won seven times: Best Music and Best Lyrics for “Company” (1971); and Best Score for “Follies” (1972), “A Little Night Music” (1973), “Sweeney Todd” (1979), “Into the Woods” (1988) and “Passion” (1994). His eighth honor was a 2008 Special Tony Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Theatre.

- The foundation of the Woods set, built on Stage H at Shepperton Studios, was made up of 2,000 tons of soil, over 600 ferns, acres and acres of ivy and countless pallets of moss and turf.

- 95 percent of the trees used on the Woods set were real trees, which included 30-foot pine trees and hundreds of 25-foot oak tree branches, the leaves of which had to be removed and replaced with artificial ones (so they would last longer). The remaining five percent were full-sized whimsical trees constructed from plaster.

- There were four cows cast to play Milky-White. Their names were Tug, Diamond, Two Fold and Pearl.

- Rapunzel’s hair in the film is 20 feet long. The braid is made from real hair and weighs almost six pounds.

- The music for the film was pre-recorded over a two-week period at Angel Studios in London with a 56-piece orchestra, composed of some of the best musicians from the London Symphony Orchestra and London Philharmonic.
