Oz, Wreck-It-Ralph and Me! #DisneyOzEvent

by Carrie with Children with 24 comments

I am so incredibly excited to tell you that next month, I’ll be jetting off to Los Angeles for the red carpet premiere of Oz The Great and Powerful! I can hardly believe it – a once in a lifetime opportunity!

Like many, the Wizard of Oz is one of my childhood favorites, so I’m ecstatic to see the prequel to this magical story.

I’ll walk the red carpet at the legendary El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood (hello bucket list item!) at the world premiere of Oz The Great and Powerful and even have the opportunity to  interview the cast including James Franco, Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams, Rachel Weisz, Zach Braff, Joey King and Director Sam Raimi.

OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL arrives in theaters on March 8th and I’ll have the inside scoop on the film before it comes to the big screen.

While I’m in California, I’ll be staying at the Langham Huntington Hotel in Pasadena. The Bachelorette’s Ashley & JP got married on TV there last month!  Doesn’t it look fantastic?!

This Florida girl is excited to see some mountains…  and have a room by herself!

And while I’m there, I’ll get to cross another item off my Disney bucket list – we are spending at day at the Walt Disney Animation Studios, where we’ll have the opportunity to talk with animators about the In-Home release of WRECK-IT RALPH. This great film releases on Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD on March 5th.

Let me know if you have any questions you’d like me to ask the animators!
