Disney On Ice Magical Ice Festival Giveaway!

We are huge Disney fans here in the Wee household and we can’t wait to catch Disney on Ice presents Magical Ice Festival at Singapore Indoor Stadium during the March school holidays from 11 Mar to 20 Mar. Disney on Ice presents Magical Ice Festival will feature magical moments all the way from the wintery world of Frozen to the watery wonderland of The Little Mermaid. The spectacular show will also include Rapunzel and Flynn from Tangled and the enchanted setting of Beauty and the Beast!

The kids are really looking forward to see their favourite princesses in action and I bet they will be frozen to their seats (haha…) when Elsa and Anna take the stage. Personally, I love to see the mascots like Mickey Mouse and gang on skates! They look so ungainly in their costumes but can somehow glide across the ice so gracefully and are simply mesmerising to watch.

Frozen Sing-A-Long Screening

Frozen Sing-A-Long

Can’t let it go? From 11–17 December 2014, selected GV locations will be screening the Sing-A-Long version of ‘Frozen’ at $8 per ticket. GV Movie Club members who purchase 2 tickets to Frozen Sing-A-Long will stand to win 1 of 5 Disney’s ‘Frozen’ hampers (worth $190 each).

We were at GV Grand for a media preview today and there were lots of fun activities for the kids. Just to be clear, the screenings from 11-17 December will not have any special activities, but I’m sure the kids (and some adults!) will have a great time singing along to all the songs in the movie anyway. Anya and Adam certainly had a blast singing away in the theatre!

Disney & SMRT Collaboration

Love Star Wars, The Avengers & Frozen? Then you’re in for a treat! SMRT and Disney have an 18-month collaboration and you will be able to get up close and personal with their most iconic characters. Disney’s franchises and brands will be brought closer to over 2 million passengers and hundreds of thousands more shoppers in SMRT’s transport and retail networks daily.

We attended the official launch on 12 November and the kids were delighted to be greeted by Stormtroopers when the train doors opened. Of course, they were there just for the launch but it was still pretty cool.

The entire train is Instagram-worthy and I can imagine fans of Star Wars, Marvel, Pixar and Disney having a blast taking photos of themselves in their favourite themed carriage. The kids at the launch all zoomed to the back of the train where characters from Frozen were prominently displayed on the windows.

I love all things Disney and I think this is such a great collaboration that will make our train rides more interesting. Really looking forward to riding the train with different Disney characters at the different lines and stations!

Big Hero 6

with Baymax

We caught Big Hero 6 on Saturday and absolutely loved it. Even before the movie was over, I wanted to watch it again! The kids enjoyed the show too and they simply adore the cuddly and squishy Baymax.

Set in San Fransokyo (a mash-up of Tokyo and San Francisoco), Big Hero 6 is an action packed comedy-adventure about robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada, who learns to harness his genius—thanks to his brilliant brother Tadashi and their like-minded friends: adrenaline junkie Go Go Tomago, neatnik Wasabi, chemistry whiz Honey Lemon and fanboy Fred. When a devastating turn of events catapults them into the midst of a dangerous plot unfolding in the streets of San Fransokyo, Hiro turns to his closest companion—a robot named Baymax—and transforms the group into a band of high-tech heroes determined to solve the mystery.

San Fransokyo is a perfect setting for Big Hero 6: fast paced and energetic with traditional elements to show that there is still some heart in the midst of technology. I love how there’s so much humour in the movie but many touching moments as well where I had to wipe away a tear or two. The main character, Hiro Hamada, is imperfect and hence very human and easy to relate to. I was also heartened by the fact that the female characters are smart and independent women who fight alongside the men! Big Hero 6 brings the action while focusing on family, friendship and teamwork without being trite.

Official release date: 13 November 2014

Grab your friends, give them a big Baymax hug, and catch Big Hero 6 today!

Disney Channel’s The 7D

Disney-the-7d-logo-april-4-2014 (500x500)

Disney’s The 7D, a hilarious take on the world of the Seven Dwarfs, will premiere tomorrow (Sunday, September 7) at 11am on Disney Channel (StarHub Ch 312/ SingTel mio TV Ch 234).

This new series takes place in the whimsical world of Jollywood, where Queen Delightful relies on The 7D – Happy, Bashful, Sleepy, Sneezy, Dopey, Grumpy and Doc – to keep the kingdom in order. Standing in their way are two ‘evil’ villains, Grim and Hildy Gloom, who plot to take over the kingdom by stealing the magical jewels in the 7D’s mine.

The talented voice cast includes Kelly Osbourne as the bumbling novice witch Hildy Gloom, and Jay Leno and Whoopi Goldberg in the recurring roles of Crystal Ball and Magic Mirror, respectively.

We managed to catch a sneak peek of The 7D at a media preview last month and the kids loved it! They laughed at the villains’ pathetic attempts to take over Jollywood and cheered for The 7D as they faced every challenge head-on and accomplished every task bravely. Even the villains are actually quite lovable in their bumbling way and are obviously no real threat and not to be taken seriously.

I love how the 7D have been creatively redesigned from what we know of them in Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs. The humour is very witty and probably better appreciated by kids above 5 (and young-at-heart adults like myself). Adam really enjoyed what we watched at the premiere though and has been very excited whenever the ad for the show comes on. To be honest, I’m looking forward to the series premiere as much as the kids!

Planes: Fire & Rescue

The school holidays start tomorrow! One must-do for the holidays is to catch Disney’s latest animated feature Planes: Fire & Rescue!

planes2 (444x600)

Planes: Fire & Rescue is a new comedy-adventure about second chances, featuring a dynamic crew of elite firefighting aircraft devoted to protecting historic Piston Peak National Park from raging wildfire. When world famous air racer Dusty learns that his engine is damaged and he may never race again, he must shift gears and is launched into the world of aerial firefighting. Dusty joins forces with veteran fire-and-rescue helicopter Blade Ranger and his courageous team, including spirited air tanker Dipper, heavy-lift helicopter Windlifter, ex-military transport Cabbie and a lively bunch of brave all-terrain vehicles known as The Smokejumpers. Together, the fearless team battles a massive wildfire and Dusty learns what it takes to become a true hero.

Some of my favourite characters from Planes: Fire & Rescue.

PLANES FIRE & RESCUE
When world-famous air racer Dusty Crophopper returns to his hometown after another victorious racing season, he revels in his new career success until a fateful training run changes his course with a career-ending injury. Forced to shift gears, Dusty decides to train with the Aerial Fire Fighters at Piston Peak Air Attack Base as a Single Engine Air Tanker.

PLANES FIRE & RESCUE
Windlifter is a heavy-lift helicopter who can hoist dozens of trees or a huge tank of fire retardant. The American Indian’s wisdom is vast—he’s chock full of fire folklore, and his connection to nature allows him to sense fires before they’re even spotted. The former lumberjack became a firefighter to help others, and no mission is too big for Windlifter.

Blade_Ranger_-_Planes_Fire_and_Rescue (600x400)
Blade Ranger, a veteran fire-and-rescue helicopter, heads up the Piston Peak Air Attack team. Haunted by a storied past, he’s a tough and demanding air boss with a wry sense of humor, and he’s not exactly enthusiastic about his new trainee Dusty. But Blade is a pro and does everything he can to bring the new SEAT up to speed.

We caught the media preview on Tuesday and really liked it. Planes: Fire & Rescue has an inspiring and heartwarming storyline that is action-packed and manages to avoid the usual cliches. Sequels don’t always live up to the hype generated by the original installment, but if you have watched Planes, I assure you that Planes: Fire & Rescue is even better!

The Looming Madness

Photo 22-4-14 6 56 10 pm

We have been bitten and infected by the Rainbow Loom bug! Symptoms of the afflication are neckache, tired eyes and cramped fingers. Side effects include spending way too much money on little rubber bands and finding yourself looming into the wee hours. There is no cure.

Seriously though, I find it quite therapeutic to hook tiny colourful rubber bands onto other rubber bands. I’m alternating between bracelets and human figures at the moment. Anya enjoys it too and sometimes chooses looming over watching TV and that is kind of a big deal! You can see some of my completed looming projects below and I’ll continue to post pictures on Instagram. Bands and kit are available at Twelve by Elly (online and in-store).
