Disney's Live-Action “Dumbo” — Teaser Trailer and Poster


From Disney and visionary director Tim Burton, the all-new grand live-action adventure “Dumbo” expands on the beloved classic story where differences are celebrated, family is cherished and dreams take flight. Circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) enlists former star Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell) and his children Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins) to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus. But when they discover that Dumbo can fly, the circus makes an incredible comeback, attracting persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), who recruits the peculiar pachyderm for his newest, larger-than-life entertainment venture, Dreamland. Dumbo soars to new heights alongside a charming and spectacular aerial artist, Colette Marchant (Eva Green), until Holt learns that beneath its shiny veneer, Dreamland is full of dark secrets.

Directed by Tim Burton (“Alice in Wonderland,” “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”) from a screenplay by Ehren Kruger (“Ophelia,” “Dream House”), and produced by Justin Springer (“TRON: Legacy”), Kruger, Katterli Frauenfelder (“Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,” “Big Eyes”) and Derek Frey (“Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,” “Frankenweenie”), “Dumbo” flies into theaters on March 29, 2019.

Incredibles 2 Review - One of Pixar's Best Sequels


It's been 14 years since Director Brad Bird introduced us to his family of superheroes and since then we have become surrounded by superheroes from various studios.

Does Incredibles 2 hold it's own in the likes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Let's find out as we review Incredibles 2!


The movie opens literally right after the original ends. If you have seen the sneak peek at Disney California Adventure, you get the first 10 minutes of the film. We see our heroes, the Parr family take on The Underminer! And just like that we thrown into the action!

As we know from the first film, superheroes are illegal but enter a tycoon Winston Deavor who wants to see superheroes legal again.




Helen is chosen to lead the campaign to bring superheroes back while Bob is left to take care of the household.


What follows is an engaging story full of heart and family. While we have waited 14 years for this sequel, Incredibles 2 easily ranks as not only one of Pixar's best movies, but one of the best superhero movies ever! The movie not only lives up to the hype of the original but surpasses it in several ways. For one, the humor level far exceeds that of the original. Jack Jack and Edna Mode easily steal the show. Second, the action is far more intense with bigger stakes. With the main characters all established, the action scenes will leave you on the edge of your seat. Third, there is a lot more depth to the overall story. They explore the superhero genre in ways that not even Marvel has yet to explore.

Pixar crafts one of the best films, animated or otherwise of the year and can only be summed up in one word, incredible!

Incredibles 2 opens in theaters June 15th, 2018.

Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 Official Trailer


Watch the official trailer for Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2. See the film in theatres November 21. “Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2” leaves Litwak’s video arcade behind, venturing into the uncharted, expansive and thrilling world of the internet—which may or may not survive Ralph’s wrecking. Video game bad guy Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) and fellow misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman) must risk it all by traveling to the world wide web in search of a replacement part to save Vanellope’s video game, Sugar Rush. In way over their heads, Ralph and Vanellope rely on the citizens of the internet—the netizens—to help navigate their way, including a webite entrepreneur named Yesss (voice of Taraji P. Henson), who is the head algorithm and the heart and soul of trend-making site “BuzzzTube.” Directed by Rich Moore (“Zootopia,” “Wreck-It Ralph”) and Phil Johnston (co-writer “Wreck-It Ralph,” “Cedar Rapids,” co-writer “Zootopia,”), and produced by Clark Spencer (“Zootopia,” “Wreck-It Ralph,” “Bolt”), “Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-Ralph 2” hits theaters on Nov. 21, 2018.

Vehicle Review: 2018 Toyota Avalon Hybrid XLE Premium - My Birthday, Star Wars and Disneyland


It is time for another vehicle review and this time it is for the 2018 Toyota Avalon Hybrid XLE Premium. It was a great way to celebrate my birthday weekend for food adventures, Disneyland and a media screening to go back to a galaxy far, far away!

The Avalon has stylish good looks as you can see above! I love the large 17-inch alloy wheels and the large front grill is aggressive.


I started off my week with another trip to Disneyland in search of new food! I found this cute Mickey Mouse sundae at Clarabelle's in ToonTown! It's almost too cute to eat, almost!


After a day of walking around finding new food in the parks it was time to head home! The wireless charging is perfect to set my  phone upon and let it charge on the drive home!


The next morning brought me to the Brea Mall for the kickoff of the Toy Story Land Mall Tour! My friend Marco was there with his Pizza Planet Truck! I brought my Pizza Planet Truck for scale! This fun event had photo opportunities and prizes!


I am a huge Buzz Lightyear fan and was so happy to get my photo in a Buzz Lightyear toy box!


The hybrid does a great job as I had no problems with speed getting on the freeways here in Southern California. The EPA rates the Avalon at 40 MPG combined.



Another day and another day to celebrate my birthday weekend at Wokcano at the Main Place Mall in Santa Ana! This location is the only one that I am aware of that offers All You Can Eat and it was my go to choice for brunch!


A huge trunk came in handy to hold all the birthday presents!


No better way than to celebrate my birthday than at my favorite place on Earth!


There are a ton of safety features. There are 10 airbags including driver and passenger knee bags and rear outboard seat-mounted bags. A rearview camera is standard on all Avalons. Toyota's Safety Sense-P Suite is also standard and includes adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, active lane control and automatic high beams.


Gauges are bright even in direct sunlight.


Time to hope into the cockpit, I mean the drivers seat and head to Hollywood for a media screening of Solo: A Star Wars Story. The Avalon provided a smooth drive to the Arclight and I felt like I made it there in less than 12 parsecs.

The cabin is whisper quiet. There is very wind or engine noise. The large 7-inch touchscreen is easy to read and to use.


Time to go watch Solo: A Star Wars Story.


I love that the Arclight usually has costumes of the current movies they are showing at all of their theaters. The Arclight Hollywood has the costumes for Solo: A Star Wars Story.


After watching Solo: A Star Wars Story it felt good to sit in the comfortable drivers seat.


The rear seats are also large and can easily seat three adults. There is a lot of leg and head room here.


The 2018 Toyota Avalon XLE Premium is a classic looking vehicle, with a ton of great safety features, a solid hybrid engine that provides power and great fuel economy, with a spacious interior and providing a fun drive. As tested, my review vehicle came in at $40,132.00.
