Tsum Tsum Series 8

I love the tiny vinyl Tsum Tsum collectibles from Jakks Pacific. The figures are adorable and their accessories are perfectly themed to each character. And because they're so mini, you can display a lot of them in a small space.

I recently discovered that Series 8 of these cuties had arrived in stores. The set includes ten new figures. I got a little carried away and bought seven of them. The only ones I haven't found are Rafiki in his tree from the Lion King, and Disgust and Fear with their memory balls from Inside Out.

My favorite from this set is Gaston in his antler topped chair. That chair is my favorite place to take pictures at the Magic Kingdom, so I had to have the mini version.

Kermit is sitting on his log, probably getting ready to sing "It's Not Easy Being Green". Moana is steering her boat across the waves and Maui sits in the curve of his fishhook.

Jack Skellington is all decked out for his Christmas ride in his Santa sleigh. Heimlich has nibbled his way through a candy corn, much like in A Bugs Life. And the Maleficent dragon is surrounded by her wall of thorns, and just a whisp of green flames. Which Series 8 Tsum Tsum is your favorite?

A Wrinkle in Time Poster and Trailer

The latest poster for A Wrinkle in Time is stunning. And the new trailer does a fantastic job of setting up the story.

Incredible 2 Teaser Trailer

Our first look at Incredibles 2 is here! It's going to be awhile before it arrives in theaters, on June 15th, 2018, but so far it looks like another fun adventure.

Here's the official description from Disney & Pixar:

Everyone’s favorite family of superheroes is back in “Incredibles 2” – but this time Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is in the spotlight, leaving Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell) and Dash (voice of Huck Milner) to navigate the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life. It’s a tough transistion for everyone, made tougher by the fact that the family is still unaware of baby Jack-Jack’s emerging superpowers. When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) must find a way to work together again—which is easier said than done, even when they’re all Incredible.
