How To Use Disney•Pixar Movies To Teach Kids About Friendship

How To Use Disney•Pixar Movies To Teach Kids About Friendship

How To Use Disney•Pixar Movies To Teach Kids About Friendship

Disney•Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur, which is available today on Blu-ray Combo Pack, Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere, is a heartwarming adventure about the power of friendship and discovering who you are meant to be.

In this epic journey, a young apatosaurus named Arlo makes an unlikely human friend while traveling through a harsh and mysterious landscape. Arlo learns not only the value of friendship, but also how to confront his fears and discover what he is truly capable of.

For some young children, making friends and learning how to be a good friend can be especially challenging. The following are a half a dozen helpful tips many parenting experts agree can help pave the way to developing satisfying social interactions:

1. Set a friendly example for your child.
Kids definitely learn by watching their parents. Model social skills in your own day- to-day interactions — talk about your friendships in positive ways, and greet people with a warm smile. Let your children see you making time for friends, offering to help those in need and being a sympathetic listener to other’s problems. Think about the characteristics you value in good friends and consistently demonstrate them yourself.

2. Help your child identify his or her friendship style
There are almost as many styles of social peer interaction as there are types of children. Observing your child’s personality will help you work with him to identify what kind of social interaction is most comfortable for him. Some kids love being part of large groups, while others can only handle one-on-one interactions. Participating in active outdoor activities may be tons of fun for some, while others prefer quiet indoor diversions like playing games or solving puzzles with a single friend or two. What’s important is to let your child’s temperament be the guiding force, and not what you think he should be doing. Being involved and forcing your child are two different things. You could unknowingly limit your child if you assume he relates to friends the same way you do. Let your child show you what kind of social interactions work best for him, and don’t hesitate to back away.

3. Use stories/movies to help teach how to be a good friend
Films like The Good Dinosaur are wonderful conversation starters for families whose children are shy about communicating. Many kids find it easier to discuss real-life issues through fictional stories. For example, after you’ve watched the film together it’s a perfect time to ask what your child felt about Arlo’s friendship with Spot, about the difference friends could make in his own life and what he might do to make new friends.

4. Teach the Basics
Practice simple phrases that ease the way into conversations, such as “What’s your name?” or “What’s your favorite sport?” Teach your child how to join a group of kids on the playground, and tell them to allow other kids to join in. Just as important is to help your child interpret non-verbal cues. Learning to read body language and facial expressions can prevent hurt and disappointment ahead of time, as they’ll learn to anticipate whether they can expect a positive reception from a peer or not.

5. Arrange social activities
You can lay the groundwork for socialization by setting the stage in several ways. Get to know the parents of your child’s classmates and neighbors and open your home to friends for playdates. Encourage your child to participate in after-school activities as a way of broadening his social circle beyond the classroom.

6. Don’t Add Pressure by making a big deal out of it
Uncertainty about making friends is a common problem for young children so don’t be too heavy handed about it. Be supportive and let your child know you’re always there to support and advise, but tread lightly. You want to help, but don’t make it a big deal. Avoid bombarding them with questions about their social lives and allow some healthy alone time. Most importantly, let children develop their own comfort level. After all, it’s their life and they should be able to live it as authentically as possible.

Star Wars Takes to the Skies This Summer in New Blockbuster Nighttime Spectacular at Walt Disney World Resort

Star Wars Takes to the Skies This Summer in New Blockbuster Nighttime Spectacular at Walt Disney World Resort

Star Wars Takes to the Skies This Summer in New Blockbuster Nighttime Spectacular at Walt Disney World Resort

Following the extraordinary popularity of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Walt Disney World Resort is unveiling even more Star Wars-themed entertainment at Disney’s Hollywood Studios starting this spring – including one of the most elaborate fireworks and projection shows in the park’s history.

Just in time for spring, that “galaxy far, far away” will be closer than ever with the April 4th arrival of the new Star Wars live entertainment experience Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away and a menacing First Order stormtrooper procession at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. And to kick off summer, the park is launching a new nightly fireworks and projection show called Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular that will eclipse anything of its kind in the park’s history.

These new Star Wars entertainment elements, coupled with other recently-added Star Wars experiences, make Disney’s Hollywood Studios the place for fans to celebrate their Star Wars passion.

Here are details on these latest entertainment features coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios this spring and summer:

APRIL 4:

  • Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away: This new live, stage show celebrates iconic moments from the Star Wars saga with live vignettes featuring popular Star Wars characters, such as Kylo Ren, Chewbacca, Darth Vader and Darth Maul. The show will take place multiple times each day at the Center Stage area near The Great Movie Ride.
  • Stormtroopers march: At various times each day, the menacing Captain Phasma will lead a squad of First Order stormtroopers as they march in formation from Star Wars Launch Bay to the Center Stage area in an intimidating demonstration of the First Order’s indomitable strength.

SUMMER: 

  • Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular: As the next generation of the current Star Wars-inspired fireworks show, this blockbuster nightly show, unprecedented in Disney’s Hollywood Studios history, will light up the sky with Star Wars-themed fireworks, lasers, light projections and other special effects combined with Star Wars-themed music and iconic characters and scenes from throughout the saga.

Through these state-of-the-art special effects that project onto the nearby Chinese Theatre and other surrounding buildings, guests will gaze at the twin suns of Tatooine, push through a field of battle droids, navigate through an asteroid field, soar down the trench of the Death Star and deliver the final blow to destroy Starkiller Base. The show, which will unfold through a series of acts, will be punctuated by a tower of fire as well as powerful spotlight beams that create lightsabers in the sky.

These latest Star Wars experiences join other new Star Wars elements recently launched at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, such as Star Wars Launch Bay. Since its debut in December, Star Wars Launch Bay has become a popular and central location where guests immerse themselves in the Star Wars saga through themed galleries, large-scale artifacts and Star Wars character encounters, including recently-added Kylo Ren, the menacing character from Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Other recent additions that have attracted legions of fans since their December debut include:

  • Star Wars: Path of the Jedi, a cinematic reel celebrating the Star Wars saga.
  • The enhanced Star Tours – The Adventures Continue that includes new characters and a new journey from Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
  • The reimagined Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple, featuring new characters, including the Seventh Sister from the Disney XD series Star Wars Rebels.
  • The “Symphony in the Stars: A Galactic Spectacular,” a nightly fireworks show set to Star Wars-themed music that will be reimagined as Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular this summer.
  • First Order stormtrooper patrols.
  • Star Wars-inspired food and beverage offerings.

With these new entertainment elements, Walt Disney World Resort guests can enjoy even more extensions of the record-setting movie Star Wars: The Force Awakens and further immerse themselves into the Star Wars galaxy like never before. Each entertainment element offers guests a uniquely immersive Star Wars experience, all adding to an unforgettable day and night at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

And more Star Wars experiences are on the way with the upcoming Star Wars-themed lands planned for Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort in California.

Silvergate Signs Three Year Global Master Toy Renewal Deal with Fisher-Price for Octonauts

Silvergate Signs Three Year Global Master Toy Renewal Deal with Fisher-Price for Octonauts

Silvergate Media (“Silvergate”), the international TV production and licensing company focused on pre-school children’s entertainment based in New York and London, has signed a three year master toy renewal deal for Octonauts, its undersea preschool adventure property with Fisher-Price Inc., one of the world’s leading manufacturers of infant and preschool toys and a subsidiary of Mattel Inc.

Now in its fourth season Octonauts is aired in over 100 countries across the world, including on Disney Channel (USA), ABC (Australia), TF1 (France) and Super RTL (Germany). Octonauts is also broadcast on China Central TV (“CCTV”).

Fisher-Price have been Silvergate’s toy partner for Octonauts since 2011, with the brand established as a leading preschool toy property in the United States, UK, Europe, Australia, and Korea. A successful toy launch is underway in China, with Russia to follow this Fall.

Fisher-Price plans to launch over 20 new toys in 2016, based around a fantastic “Year of Slime” play pattern.

Waheed Alli, CEO, Silvergate said:

“We are thrilled to have renewed our partnership with Fisher-Price demonstrating our commitment to working with world-class partners to develop fantastic toys.

“Octonauts is now truly a global property, and continues to go from strength to strength as a unique and exciting pre-school brand.

“As the show gains popularity in new markets, we look forward to millions more children enjoying Octonauts toys at home.”

Susie Lecker, EVP Chief Brand Officer, Toybox Division, Mattel Inc. said:

“We’ve really enjoyed bringing the underwater world of Octonauts to life thanks to a globally relevant aquatic and rescue theme that’s so toyetic that the toys jump out of the show.

“Silvergate’s dedication to support Octonauts with continuous new content paired with an aggressive pursuit of content distribution makes them a terrific partner.”

Under the three year master toy license, Fisher-Price has global rights to develop pre-school playsets, vehicles, figures, plush, and electronic learning aids.

When Judy jumps at the opportunity to solve a mysterious case, she ends up working with Nick Wilde, a wily fox who is not really eager to help.  The talking plush from TOMY features Nick’s fast-talking phrases and helps bring these scenes to life.

“We are so excited to create toys celebrating the rich and whimsical characters from Zootopia,” states Shehnaz Safiuddin, Senior Vice President of Toy & Hobby at TOMY.  “The toy line is now available at retail locations worldwide, in time for the US movie premiere onMarch 4th and for Easter gift giving—which couldn’t be more ideal with the star rabbit Officer Judy Hopps in the line-up!”

By embracing everything we all love about Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and giving them a fresh spin,  we’ve reimagined fan and cult faves alike as powerful and complex young adults with that magic mix of action, drama and romance that is Marvel,” said Bill Rosemann, Marvel Games Creative Director. “By digging deep into the Marvel vault to celebrate all things Avengers, we’ve created an exciting, mysterious and vibrant campus, complete with an ever-expanding roster of students, faculty, backstory and secrets. Class is in session…do you have what it takes to become an Avenger?”

“We’ve been very fortunate to work closely with Marvel on this fresh take of the Avengers franchise,” said Suli Ali, Founder and CEO of TinyCo. “With the amazing voice talent we’ve brought aboard for this game, and a best-in-class production team, we know that we’ve created an authentic Avengers experience that can stand proudly alongside the best of the Marvel Universe — one that will continue to evolve as we support the title with big content updates featuring new characters and new exciting adventures.”
