THE ROCK FATHER: THE POP CULTURE MAGAZINE FOR FAMILIES THAT ROCK.

Giveaway: A Chance to Win a Rare Promotional T-Shirt from Disney's FROZEN!

Back in February, I had the opportunity to spend a few days visiting Walt Disney Animation Studios as part of the press tour for Disney's FROZEN. With something that's become so big that it's forever cemented it's place as a pop culture phenomenon, I'm fortunate and thankful to have been able to make such a hands-on connection with it and the folks behind it - if only for a short time. While I was out there, the folks at Disney hooked me up with some things... one of which stands out as something really unique. It's actually so unique - at least I think that it is - that I can't find any other pictures or reference to it online. I'd imagine the only other people that have these either worked on FROZEN, work for Disney, or were members of the media that were invited out to cover the film. Tonight, I'm giving all of YOU a chance to own it...

Baby Music: Lullaby Versions of FROZEN on the way - Hear "Let It Go" Now!

With the recent release of Walt Disney Animation Studios' Academy Award-winning mega-hit, FROZEN, on Blu-ray and DVD, you'd think that we'd be done talking about the land of Arendelle for a bit, unless there was some news about FROZEN 2, right? Well, not quite, as the spirit and music of this cultural phenomenon continues to inspire and evolve, and now the folks at Roma Music Group are prepping to pay tribute by re-working the now-iconic soundtrack for the youngest Olaf fans in your house. LULLABY VERSIONS OF FROZEN will hit Digital Retailers on April 29th, the latest release in the popular, and fast-growing Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star collection of pop culture lullabies.

Ron Swanson: "There is no quiet. There is only Doc McStuffins..."

So, earlier this weekend, I'm cruising the Brown Bag Films website prior to posting about the YouTube release of their I'M AN ANIMAL series, when I come across this blog entry from March 24. Yes, the legendary Ron Swanson of NBC's PARKS AND RECREATION throwing down some wisdom about DOC McSTUFFINS. While I don't get to see PARKS & REC very often, I do know that Swanson (played by Nick Offerman) is perhaps the finest live-action character currently appearing on television. I also know that my house has been completely overtaken by little Dottie McStuffins, and friends - but I'm totally cool with it.

Review: WINNIE THE POOH: SPRINGTIME WITH ROO (Blu-ray)

It's been a decade since WINNIE THE POOH: SPRINGTIME WITH ROO was first released, and having missed it the first time around (five years Pre-Rock Father), I was anxious to check it out on "Hippity Hoppity Roo Edition" Blu-ray with my girls, both of whom have developed an affection for the characters of the Hundred Acre Wood. Just-released from the infamous Disney Vault (and for the first time in HD), SPRINGTIME WITH ROO is a surprising tale - but one that was unexpectedly... familiar.

Special Feature: The Direction, Development (and ROCK?) of Disney's THE PIRATE FAIRY #PirateFairyBloggers

Sitting down with Producer Jenni Magee-Cook and Director Peggy Holmes at DisneyToon Studios in Glendale, California back in February, there was an overwhelming sense of joy and enthusiasm as they begun discussing the creation of THE PIRATE FAIRY, the latest installment of the Disney Fairies franchise, which hit Blu-ray and DVD this week. "I wanted to tell a story about a girl that makes a mistake," explains Holmes in discussing Zarina, the "Pirate Fairy" herself (voiced by MAD MEN's Christina Hendricks), and a new resident of Pixie Hollow that leads Tinker Bell and friends to a world not previously-explored in the series: Never Land.
