Toy Story has been a favorite movie of mine for as long as I can remember. Watching the story of toys come to life reminds me of childhood and how I used to play with toys. I’m sure I imagine I used to think my toys could come to life when I wasn’t around. I mean, what kid didn’t?
This is part of the charm of the Toy Story movies. The story is relatable to every child and child-at-heart. But that’s not the only thing that makes Toy Story great.
The Toy Story cast is amazing. The cast of Toy Story 4 includes the returning voice actors:
Almost 14 years ago, the original Incredibles movie released. Audiences were captivated by the adventures of Bob Parr/Mr. Incredible (Craig T. Nelson – He’s not a Coach any longer but a superhero father), Helen Parr/Elastigirl (Holly Hunter), Violet Parr (Sarah Vowell), Dashiell “Dash” Parr (Huck Milner), Jack-Jack Parr (Eli Fucile), and Lucius Best/Frozone (Samuel L. Jackson).
While it’s been a long time coming, the Incredibles returned to movie theaters this past weekend. And the wait was worth it.
The theater Pam and I were in erupted with laughter. Little kids yelped in fear. Parents roared and cheered for the good guys. Incredibles 2 was a hit.
Incredibles 2 provides the viewer with great entertainment. Incredibles 2 is also filled with great leadership lessons.
Let’s take a look at the leadership lessons in Incredibles 2 and what they mean for you.
Olaf’s Frozen Adventure is a Pixar short shown before the Pixar film Coco (Leadership lessons from Coco). Olaf’s Frozen Adventure takes place in the Frozen universe and sees the return of Elsa (Idina Menzel), Anna (Kristen Bell), Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), and, of course, Olaf (Josh Gad).
The film is set in the kingdom of Arendelle, where Frozen took place. Anna, Elsa, and Olaf planned a surprise dinner for the citizens of Arendelle but things go awry when the villagers leave after the ringing of the Yule Bell and leave the dinner unattended.
Anna and Elsa then realize they have no Christmas family traditions of their own. Olaf decides to set out to find family traditions Anna and Elsa could adopt as their own.
We watch as Olaf and the reindeer Sven go door to door asking the citizens of Arendelle what their family traditions are. Read more...
Let’s be honest. Walt Disney Picture’s and Pixar’s Cars 2 was a disappoint. Cars 2 strayed far from what made the original Cars movie great. Thankfully, Cars 3 veers back on track.
Cars 3 tells the story of Lightning McQueen and his new competitor Jackson Storm (which is a great name. My nephew’s name is Jackson.). Jackson Storm is a rookie race car blazing the course. He’s leaving the old competitors in the dust. That means Lightning McQueen isn’t the fastest anymore.
Cars 3 is an entertaining tale. The movie brings back the feel of the original and sets us up for a continuation of the story. And, as usual, I’m here to bring you leadership lessons from Cars 3. Be ready, there’s plenty.
