I went to see Brave on Friday night. I won tickets from Macaroni Kid Chandler. I confess, I belong to all the Macaroni Kids sites in the area-North Phoenix, Tempe, Gilbert and Chandler. Macaroni Kid always has ideas for fun things to do and lots of giveaways. If you like to enter contests, check out the links I added. Let me know if you win!
We attended the Phoenix Radio Disney Premiere at Ultra Star Cinema in Scottsdale. Ultra Star has D Box chairs, special chairs that move with the movie. You can test them in the lobby or pay a premium price for a DBox ticket.
Attending a premiere gives you something fun to do while waiting in line. People like to dress up. There is usually music, contests and giveaways. It’s a fun way to get in the spirit of a movie.
If you arrive late for Brave, you may miss the short called Luna that appears before the main feature. Pixar includes a short before their movies.
La Luna is also a book. We checked it out from the library before we saw the movie. Enrico Casarosa wanted to create a different look from past computer-generated films.(read more by following the link)
My favorite part of Brave was the bear plotline.
Pixar movies are masterpieces. They draw from art, music, literature, poetry and video games. You can tell the animators love to learn because the movies are so densely layered. Our family was grateful to win tickets. Of course, I’ll be seeing it again. How about you? There are four upcoming Pixar films in the works. Do you know what they are? How could you find out?
p.s. Wired has a great piece for parents about 10 things about Brave.
