Disney’s “Tangled Ever After” animated short set for January release!

Disney announced earlier in the week that there will be a follow-up to their 2010 hit Tangled. This one will be coming in the form of an animated short attached to the theatrical release of Beauty and the Beast 3D in theatres, January 13th.

From what I understand, this takes off right where Tangled left off. This is centered around the wedding and all the madness leading up to the “big day”. Pascal is the “Flower Chameleon” and Maximus is the ring bearer that ends up losing the wedding bands. As you can imagine, this is going to be a pretty wild short to prep the audience for Beauty and the Beast 3D!

I’d love to read you comments on this. The Lion King re-release was spectacular, so we’ll have no problem in spending the cash to check out Beauty and the Beast. I have a 3 year old who loves these classics and absolutely LOVES Tangled. I hope to see you there! Be sure to follow me on twitter @Chatterbox4REAL and click Subscribe on my blog link as I will be posting any updates I receive on this as well as merchandise for this special animated short! You know they’ll make it (they had TONS for Toy Story “Hawaiian Vacation”) and I’LL have the info you want on it! Until next time…

Halloween Part 3: Pumpkin Carving!

Hey! Chatterbox back to share some fun Halloween Jack-o-Lanterns that we’ve done this year and then 2 from last year!

Traditional Jack-O-Lantern Pumpkin
This one was done by my 3-year-old, Zoe. My wife, Amber drew on it with a sharpie, then Zoe cut it almost perfectly (with supervision, of course). Proud Daddy right here!

Elvis Silhouette Pumpkin
This was Amber’s Pumpkin for the year. She did a really nice job and will look great on display while I pass out candy this year (dressed as Elvis)!

Disney Rapunzel Pumpkin
I expected this one to be alot easier. I found the pattern on because Zoe absolutely LOVES Tangled. This was not easy at all. All of the tiny little details in her hair were extremely difficult to get right. If you add the cheap little pumpkin saws I was using, and you have yourself the ingredients for disaster. I think it turned out ok though.

Lotso¬†Huggin’ Bear Pumpkin
This was from last year’s set. It matched my costume! I found one of the promotional posters for Toy Story 3 and cropped his face out using Photoshop. From there, I made a stencil and printed it out! The rest is history! My favorite one (that I’ve carved) to date!

Chatterbox Brad Pumpkin
Last year, I had bought about 6 pumpkins and I was running out of ideas towards the end of our carving excursion last year. Previously, I created a high-resolution¬†stencil of my face for another project online, so I decided to print it out and carve my face onto the pumpkin. This one was especially hard to complete because I was laughing the entire time. Who honestly carves a pumpkin of themselves? Honestly? Lol this was pretty outrageous, but I think it was my wife’s favorite. Whenever we start to talking about the pumpkins, she always bring it up. Gotta love her. She puts up with my madness!

In closing, I will do a better job next year of posting Halloween earlier. For kicks and giggles, I’ll include a tutorial on how to create your own stencil and then transfer them to a pumpkin! I’ve got many ways and ideas on how to do these and each year, I experiment more so I’ll be sure to share. In the meantime, please follow or subscribe and I’d love to hear comments or requests. Until next time…
