MULAN Tony & Tom Bancroft Interview #Mulan #DisneyOzEvent

I walked the Red Carpet at the Oz premiere, meet the stars of the film and interviewed them, watched a chunk of new Iron Man 3 film and interviewed Marvel President Kevin Feige, and I also meet with Mulan Director and Animation Supervisor (identical twin brothers) Tony and Tom Bancroft.  Yeah, I can't quite believe it myself.  My time in LA was brief, but amazing. Tom and Tony Bancroft were sweet, funny, and kind.  This is not very profound, but- they are real people.   You might have realized this, but I have to confess I found it refreshing to meet such genuine people involved in the … [Read more...]

Oz The Great and Powerful- Mila Kunis Interview #DisneyOzEvent

photo courtesy of Just Jared Mila Kunis is the real deal.  What do I mean by this?  She isn't fake in anyway.  What you see is what you get.  Mila Kunis is a woman who is clearly comfortable in her own skin and handles life in a direct manner.  Upon entering our room (full of 25 mommy bloggers) she was immediately aware that she was in a room full of fans and "real" women.  Unlike other parts of her day dealing with traditional journalists trying to pry the latest gossip from her lips, we were just happy to see her.  What followed was a delightful and fun interview for all.  (I have … [Read more...]

Oz The Great and Powerful- Rachel Weisz Interview #DisneyOzEvent

photo courtesy of Disney Rachel Weisz is the epitome of elegant grace.  I had this impression of her prior to our interview and certainly this perspective was enhanced by my experience.  With a delicate British accent she answered our questions surrounding her character Evanora from the film Oz The Great and Powerful.  Her costumes within the movie are elaborate and beautiful, a stark contrast to the gown she wore at the premiere.  This orange dress was sleek and sexy and was magnificent to see in person. photo courtesy of Disney Be sure to check out my previous interview posts with … [Read more...]

Oz The Great and Powerful- Director Sam Raimi Interview #DisneyOzEvent

(Photo by Alberto E. Rodriguez/WireImage) I'm a little ashamed to admit I didn't readily identify Sam Raimi.  I hope my husband doesn't read this.  One of his all time favorite movies is Army of Darkness.  He actually wooed me during our courtship with lines from the movie.  I can't tell you how many times my husband has said, "Gimme some sugar, baby". Clearly, I've been hiding under a shell, as Sam Raimi is a powerful storyteller and director.  Spider-Man?  Yep, that' him.  Spider-Man 2? Yep.  I imagine it takes a brave soul to tap into the Wizard of Oz storyline.  The Judy Garland classic … [Read more...]
