Free Printables for Pete’s Dragon

Disney's Pete's Dragon Movie via @PagingSupermom

I just saw Disney’s new Pete’s Dragon movie, and my favorite part of the film had to be the gorgeous scenery. We just returned from a 3-week family road trip up the Pacific Coast, and the lush forrest in Pete’s Dragon made me feel like we were back there.

The new Pete’s Dragon is a fun re-imagining of the classic dragon tail. It’s quite a different storyline than the semi-animated Pete’s Dragon you probably remember from your childhood, but it’s far more epic. I love the inclusion of a friendly park ranger, and Robert Redford’s character was so engaging, but then I’ve had a crush on him since I was a teenager.

There are some intense parts, and the opening scene actually had me in tears. I think it’s on par with Maleficent, and I recommend reading the review over on Parent Previews if you want a more detailed play by play of the movie.

Is Tomorrowland Too Scary for Kids?

A Parent's Take on Disney's New Tomorrowland Movie

We have been pretty excited to see Tomorrowland, starring George Clooney and Britt Robertson, which opens in theaters today. Created by Disney and rated PG, this may look like a perfect film for a family movie night, but before you head out to the theater with your crew, here’s what you should know.

A Parent's Take on Disney's New Tomorrowland Movie

Review of Disney's Tomorrowland Movie from a Parent's point of view

We first saw a trailer for Tomorrowland when we took our family to see Disney’s new Cinderella movie in March. In that glimpse, Tomorrowland looked like a fun, family movie; however, we recently saw a few more intense trailers (particularly the one below) that left us wondering for what ages the movie is appropriate. Happily we were invited to an early screening of the show, and we paid careful attention to figure out which of our kids we should take to see it.

At least there are lots of pretty pictures…

I get really excited about little things, like the fact that we cut larger paper snowflakes that looked EXACTLY like the snowflake on the Frozen party invite. Anyone else realize how incredibly awesome that is, or am I just a bit crazy?? Be sure to read our tutorial on how to cut a perfect snowflake to see how to work this magic. Wouldn’t it be fun to tuck a folded up snowflake into the envelope with the party invites?
