A red carpet event PLUS a major TV event PLUS a TV set visit in one week? Somebody pinch me!
I am headed to LA next month to attend the red carpet premiere of Big Hero Six. While I am there I also get to go to a live taping of Dancing With The Stars. And, as if that isn’t enough, I also get to go to on set for the new series Agent Carter, which debuts in January and is a spinoff of one of my favorite shows, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. WHAT?!
Ohhh what kind of stars do you think I will see and meet?!?!
Big Hero Six
Staring the larger-than-life Baymax, every time commercials for Big Hero Six come on TV my three year old tells me, “That white guy is so funny!” And then she begs me to “tape” it for her. The concept of having to go to the theater to see it is lost on her, she things I can tape it because it comes on TV during commercial breaks between Doc McStuffins and Sherif Callie. Little does she know I am going to a bog fancy party to see it premiere (don’t tell her!).
From Walt Disney Animation Studios, the team behind “Frozen” and “Wreck-It Ralph,” comes “Big Hero 6,” an action-packed comedy-adventure about the special bond that develops between Baymax (voice of Scott Adsit), a plus-sized inflatable robot, and prodigy Hiro Hamada (voice of Ryan Potter). When a devastating event befalls the city of San Fransokyo and catapults Hiro into the midst of danger, he turns to Baymax and his close friends adrenaline junkie Go Go Tomago (voice of Jamie Chung), neatnik Wasabi (voice of Damon Wayans Jr.), chemistry whiz Honey Lemon (voice of Genesis Rodriguez) and fanboy Fred (voice of T.J. Miller). Determined to uncover the mystery, Hiro transforms his friends into a band of high-tech heroes called “Big Hero 6.” Inspired by the Marvel comics of the same name, and featuring breathtaking action with all the heart and humor audiences expect from Walt Disney Animation Studios, “Big Hero 6” is directed by Don Hall (“Winnie the Pooh”) and Chris Williams (“Bolt”), and produced by Roy Conli (“Tangled”). The film hits theaters in 3D on Nov. 7, 2014.
Dancing With The Stars
What else can I say about going to a live taping of Dancing With The Stars – OMG! I’ll be live Tweeting throughout the West Coast taping on Monday November 3, so stay tuned for that. And here’s hoping I can convince Derek Hough to lead me around the dance floor — just once. Or perhaps Alfonso will show me some of his moves.
The big question, what to wear?
Agent Carter was a late addition to our agenda, and oh my goodness this Marvel fan girl is beside herself with excitement. Agent Carter first appeared in Captain America, and she most recently appeared in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. The new series will debut in January during the midseason break of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which means Marvel fans can still get our fix during the break. I don’t know much about Agent Carter, yet, but what I do know is that she is another strong female character in the superhero world (getting her own show!) and that is pretty awesome. I can’t wait to meet Agent Carter (Hayley Atwell), visit the set and learn all about the new show!
Check out Agent Carter’s appearance on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
A comedy, a fairytale and a musical – it’s Galavant! This new show will debut on ABC in January 2015, but before it does I get to screen an upcoming episode. For a girl who loves to watch TV way too much, I am so excited to see it before it airs! It looks to be a uniquely funny new show.
Galavant is an upcoming American fairy tale-themed musical comedy television series that was created, written, and executive produced by Dan Fogelman with co-executive producers Alan Menken, Glenn Slater and Chris Koch for ABC Studios.
Finally, I will get to check out an upcoming episode of ABC’s new comedy black-ish and some of the team who works on the show. black-ish airs on ABC on Wednesdays at 9:30 pm EST.
Black-ish is an American black sitcom series starring Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis RossThe single-camera comedy centers on an upper-middle-class African-American family.
