|so glad they managed to include a floating head in this poster! :)|
The audience was filled with families with young kids who had probably never seen the movie before. Or if they had, they certainly did not know it as well as the rest of us in the audience, who were clearly in their 20s or 30s and who had grown up in the Disney Renaissance era (1990s - best Disney era EVER). So it was very entertaining to watch the movie both with kids who were reacting to all the humor, drama and fun for the first time, as well as with other adults who shamelessly sang along to all the songs and were quoting lines before they were spoken. I loved that multigenerational experience - it's what I love so much about Disney movies. No matter what age you are they can be enjoyed over and over again. Even though I know nearly the whole movie by heart, I was still struck with awe, sadness, fear and laughter throughout the whole film.
I'm saving a full review of The Lion King for when it's time to watch it in order. But one of my next posts will be dedicated to my favorite sidekick duo, Timon & Pumbaa! stay tuned!
My birthday was full of other Disnerdy goodness as well including:
- My team at work threw me a Tangled-themed birthday celebration, complete with Tangled paper plates, napkins and Happy Birthday banner. Unfortunately I don't have any pictures of the actual occasion (it was a surprise and so I was not prepared with a camera!) but I saved some of the napkins and the banner!
|the front of the napkin has rapunzel on it, but this is the side that's pinned up on my bulletin board. hehe|
- Kylene lent me her cute Minnie Mouse ears to wear at the movie theater (I took them off during the actual movie since I didn't want to be rude to the people behind me.)
|sorry it's blurry, blame elizabeth! :)|
- My two infographic partners in crime, Glenn and Abi, drew me these great infographics on the back of the birthday card from my team. Okay so Glenn's isn't really Disney-related but it's still awesome.
- And last but not least, my brother Tim sent me the Blu-ray/DVD combo version of Tangled! I am super excited about that, even though I don't have a Blu-ray player. I must find one so that I can watch all the special features!
|is it me or do i have a few more wrinkles than before?|
|these post-meal pics are always kind of awkward. oh well! thanks ladies for a wonderful night!|
