In less than a week I’m off to live the dream. I’m going to Dancing with the Stars semi-finals and the red carpet of The Good Dinosaur. WOWEEE!!! But of course that’s not all. I’m going to be visiting some other really amazing ABC TV shows and see a preview of Disney’s Lion Guard. My son is super excited about Lion Guard. Here is the breakdown.
The Good Dinosaur is Pixar’s latest film. It’s about a Dinosaur and a little boy, from the last preview I saw it looked like the dinosaur sort of takes the little boy on as a pet. It’ll be interesting to see how the story unfolds as they get to know each other and I did almost shed a tear from the preview. It opens November 25th.
Now The Lion Guard: Return of The Roar looks really great. It continues the epic storytelling of “The Lion King” and introduces Kion, the second-born cub of Simba and Nala, as he assumes his role as leader of the Lion Guard, a group of animals tasked with protecting the Pride Lands. You’ll be able to watch it when it premieres on the Disney Channel November 22nd 7/6c. And then I get to have a Q&A with Executive Producer Ford Riley, Composer Christopher Willis, Singer/Songwriter Beau Black and Swahili Consultant Sarah Mirza.
And what I’m most excited for is Dancing With The Stars. I get to be part of the LIVE taping of the 21st season of Dancing with the Stars! It airs on ABC Monday evenings at 8/7c. I used to love watching this show. I only stopped because we didn’t have TV for a a few years then somehow when we started watching again this didn’t get added to the list but I’m sure after this weekend I’ll be addicted to it again.
All the other shows I’m going to visit the Walt Disney Studios Lot for special preview screenings of episodes of hit ABC comedies “black-ish” it airs Wednesday nights at 9:30/8:30c and “The Muppets” which airs Tuesday nights at 8:00/7:00c.
While on the lot, I get to meet the multi-talented Tracee Ellis Ross, who portrays Johnson family mom & anesthesiologist Rainbow “Bow” Johnson on “black-ish” and if you’ve ever admired the beautiful Johnson home, this will be your chance to see the set in person! And I get to stop by the set of Miss Piggy’s late-night talk show, “Up Late with Miss Piggy” (which Kermit the Frog executive produces, of course). The whole family watches this show every week. So I’m excited to get to visit the set. Then I get to meet “The Muppets” Executive Producer Bill Barretta, who also performs Pepe the King Prawn, Rowlf the Dog, The Swedish Chef, Dr. Teeth and Bobo the Bear! I’m excited to meet him.
