“Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” –Lewis Carroll Through The Looking Glass
As a child, my parents instilled in me the possibilities of following my dreams. And so I dreamed. I dreamed of being an Astronaut, and one summer my parents sent me to Space Camp. I dreamed of being a Scientist, so I completed college with a degree in Biochemistry. I dreamed of becoming a Mother, so when I married I expanded my family right away. I never lacked the courage to pursue my dreams, however, I’ve always had attainable goals. But what would happen if I dreamed big, REALLY big? What if I took the advice of Lewis Carroll and dreamed six impossible things before breakfast? And so I did…..
Impossible Dream #1: Attend The ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS Red Carpet Premiere
This month I am flying out to Los Angeles to attend the red carpet premiere of ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS and interviewing some of the talent from the film! That is right, myself along with 24 other incredible bloggers are covering the entire event May 22nd-24th. So follow along using the hashtags: #ThroughTheLookingGlassEvent & #ZootopiaBluray.
Alice Through the Looking Glass reunites the all-star cast from the worldwide blockbuster phenomenon including: Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Mia Wasikowska and Helena Bonham Carter along with the voices of Alan Rickman, Stephen Fry, Michael Sheen and Timothy Spall. We are also introduced to several new characters: Zanik Hightopp (Rhys Ifans), the Mad Hatter’s father and Time himself (Sacha Baron Cohen), a peculiar creature who is part human, part clock.
Impossible Dream #2: To Be As Beautiful & As Graceful As The White Queen
Done. Well, I am not so sure about the graceful part but I found my red carpet dress and it is beautiful! Here is a little sneak peek of it, sans makeup. You will have to follow along to see the BIG reveal! And don’t forget the hashtags: #ThroughTheLookingGlassEvent & #ZootopiaBluray
Impossible Dream #3: To Be As Mad As The Mad Hatter
Be crazy. Be silly. Be mad. Be weird. Be yourself. Because life is too short to be anything other than happy. Unless you have the chance to be another character!
While in town you will also attend a special press day for the In-Home release of ZOOTOPIA (available on Blu-ray and Digital HD on 6/7) where you will interview members of the creative team behind the making of the movie including Directors Byron Howard & Rich Moore and Raymond Persi (Story Artist at Walt Disney Animation Studios and the voice of “Flash”) and get a chance to step into the recording booth and voice a character from the film!
Impossible Dream #4: Be The White Rabbit
No, I am not suggesting you arrive late for very important dates! But rather, make an impression. Wouldn’t you follow a white rabbit, wearing a waistcoat and carrying a pocket watch, down a hole? I know I would! So, don’t follow the crowd or try to “fit in” but rather, be the person everyone wants to follow! And make your path lead to Wonderland!
Impossible Dream #5: Disappear
If only I could vanish into thin air to reappear in Los Angeles TODAY! Alas, I have to wait until May 22nd, when the #ThroughTheLookingGlassEvent begins!
Impossible Dream #6: Be A Red Queen
If you don’t follow me May 22nd-24th or see ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS on May 27th, you know what will happen.
“Off with your head!”
ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS opens in theaters everywhere on May 27, 2016!
