A Week in LA With a Highlight of Angelina Jolie #MaleficentEvent #FireandRescueEvent

Oh I woke up this morning with a great deal of anxiety….and for a moment I was really confused and didn’t understand why I had anxiety, it’s because I’m doing three different activities this next week all in LA. I leave tomorrow morning at 4 am to head off to LA. I’m going to start my weekend drinking wine and learning about food blogging at Camp Blogaway. Then I head off to the heart of Hollywood where I’m going to actually get to interview Angelina Jolie for the upcoming Disney film Maleficent.

I’m lucky enough that I’ve actually already seen 10 minutes of the movie. I saw the part where Aurora was born and all the fairies bestow gifts on the princess and then in comes Maleficent. Well Well Well, it’s amazingly done. Because Angelina Jolie steals the scene. But then the 10 minutes that I saw switches to when Aurora meets Maleficent and it seems like they become friends almost. And then as you can see in the trailers…shocker a betrayal happens as Aurora learns that she is the fairy that cursed her. Sigh….I’m so excited to see the film and have the chance to interview Angelina Jolie.

Part of the Disney magic will include a screening of the new Planes movie coming out this summer, Planes Fire and Rescue. Yes, Dusty is going to return this summer and this time he wants to become a fire rescue plane. Can he do it? We’ll just have to see and we’ll be spending a day learning about the animation that went into Planes Fire and Rescue and you know that makes me feel like a kid in a candy store.

We will interview Julie Bowen (voice of “Dipper”) and the filmmakers.  While there, we will attend a drawing demonstration with animators and get a chance to voice a character from the film in a recording booth!  And finally, we will also attend an exclusive Disney Consumer Products and Disney Store product presentation and tour at Disney’s Glendale Creative Campus to learn all about the new product lines for both films!  And for this trip I will be staying at the Universal Sheraton Hotel!
