I can think of so many great ways to kick off the Christmas holiday season, but really, this isn’t something I could have dreamed up to have been on my list. I get one more trip to LA before the end of the year happens, that’s a pretty sweet Christmas gift. Including Into the Woods and ABC Family in the mix, well, that is the glow in Rudolph’s nose! 😉
Into the Woods and ABC Family
Yes, so next week I am back in LA for a week full of craziness! This trip will include the film release of Into the Woods, the Diamond Edition Blu-ray release of 101 Dalmatians, the returning ABC Family hit TV shows Melissa and Joey and Baby Daddy and of course the holiday celebration 25 Days of Christmas!
All of this is taking place starting next Wednesday, December 17th – Friday, December 19th. I, along with 24 other lucky bloggers, will be attending a special Q&A screening of Into the Woods at Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills which is the official “Academy” Theatre. This is where they do movie screenings along with other events. It is the very special location where they announce the Oscar nominations live every year. This means I may be in the very room where on January 15th they will say that Meryl Streep has been nominated for her record extending 19th Oscar nomination for Into the Woods. That’s pretty amazing. We will then have an opportunity separate from this event to interview some of the cast and filmmakers from the movie in our own intimate setting. (Names of who will be announced soon – but how cool to speak to any one of them. I’m hoping to add Meryl to my list of strong, amazing women I’ve interviewed.)
And as if that isn’t enough excitement for a week, also while in town I will also attend a special press day in honor of the Diamond Edition Blu-ray release of 101 Dalmatians! And then ABC Family will be taking me on set of their returning hit TV shows Melissa and Joey and Baby Daddy to observe production and meet the casts of the shows! And finally, the ABC Family portion of the event wouldn’t be complete without a 25 Days of Christmas themed dinner!
Whew! So here’s your warning. There will be tweets, Facebook posts, and lots of photos of all I can share during and after the event, so make sure to follow along!
INTO THE WOODS opens on 12/25 (Christmas Day), MELISSA & JOEY and BABY DADDY return on 1/14 and 101 DALMATIANS releases from the Disney vault on 2/10.
