Holiday Movie Preview

Updates on two movies I'm really excited about seeing this Christmastime:

First, we went to see a movie a couple weeks ago and my eyes popped and my jaw dropped when I spied this little display:

I was so excited I had to take a picture of me at the helm.  This is pretty much the first official advertising product I've seen for this third installment in the Narnia series, and I was ever so thrilled.  For some inexplicable reason, Disney decided to give up their production of it last year, but another studio picked it up and luckily, it seems to be really consistent to the previous two.

Not long after, I found this online:

I must have missed seeing this official teaser poster when it was released a while ago.  I just love seeing things that tell me that this is definitely coming out.  Of course, it has to come out in the ubiquitous 3D, but I'm just glad it's Narnia.

Second, here's the first decent trailer for Disney's Tangled.

I'm a little tentative when I see this...  I think this trailer might focus more on the male lead though, so maybe when I see one that's a little more about Rapunzel herself I'll be more on board.  I don't know why Disney princesses need to be sassy and hardcore anymore (or why their hair needs to be sentient and prehensile...), but I reserve my judgment because it looks pretty, and the 3D isn't as off-putting as it has been in previous human-cast animated films.

Still, I'm so excited to see it, I had to take this picture on our recent trip to Disneyland:

It's good because it seems like it's been quite a while since I've been really excited about seeing a movie in the theater.  Plus, it'll be winter by then!


  1. Ooh, can't wait. It's hard to pick a favorite, but I am pretty sure Voyage is mine. I love the Eustace story and have used it in more than one talk on Repentance.

  2. YAY YAY YAY for both! Too bad they're not doing a 2D princess movie though. I guess because it's more of a comedy, eh?

  3. I CANNOT WAIT for VDT! If you haven't visited already, it's a really good way to keep up with the production process. The trailer comes out in 3 days, with the release of Toy Story 3! Squee!

  4. I'm just hoping this one does well so that Silver Chair gets made; that's a personal favorite.

  5. Hey, Silver Chair is my favorite, too. Hope they make them all.

  6. Wow. I had no idea either of these movies were coming. They look good...I do hope the third Narnia is better than the second (Prince Caspian).
