The short that will be released in front of “Moana” is called “Inner Workings.” While in LA we will have the opportunity to attend a presentation with Director Leo Matsuda and Producer Sean Lurie. “Inner Workings” blends CG and traditional hand-drawn animation, the short explores the importance of finding balance in daily life.
The BFG Blu-Ray Release
Our group will also be covering the Blu-Ray DVD release of “The BFG” and enjoy a miniature brunch feast, special photo opportunity and interview with Lucy Dahl, daughter of author Roald Dahl. The Blu-Ray DVD will be released on 11/29/16.
In addition to covering Moana we will also be given the opportunity to learn more about the Disney Channel Show “Stuck in the Middle” with a screening and Q&A with the cast.
The family comedy series follows Harley Diaz (Jenna Ortega) as she maneuvers her way through the bustle of being a middle child in a family with six other siblings. The heartfelt and comedic stories of a big family find Harley devising creative ways to cope with – and stand out – in her family’s busy suburban Massachusetts household. Her ingenuity often wins the day for the Diaz family, even with many different personalities living under one roof.
We will also get to have some behind-the-scenes experiences with ABC TV.
We will get to experience a set visit and a meet and greet with available cast members of ABC TV’s new comedy series “Speechless.”
“Speechless” stars Minnie Driver as Maya DiMeo, a mom on a mission who will do anything for her family, especially her eldest son J.J. with cerebral palsy. Maya fights injustices both real and imagined, the family works to make a new home for themselves, and thankfully found just the right person in Kenneth (Cedric Yarbrough) to help give J.J. his “voice.”
Now in it’s second season, ABC TV comedy Dr. Ken stars Ken Jeong who continues to be the hilarious general practitioner we all know and love. He has a smart and beautiful wife, two decent kids and a loyal but sometimes irritating support staff in a job where he gets to help people on a daily basis, all the while using his unique sense of humor to get him through the day.
