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

The Filmmakers behind ALADDIN and THE LITTLE MERMAID set sail with MOANA...

In late 2016, the filmmakers behind THE LITTLE MERMAID, ALADDIN and THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG will bring a new adventure to the screen with MOANA, "a sweeping, CG-animated comedy-adventure about a spirited teenager on an impossible mission to fulfill her ancestors' quest." Directed by Ron Clements and John Musker, “Moana is indomitable, passionate and a dreamer with a unique connection to the ocean itself,” declares Musker. “She's the kind of character we all root for."

An Early Look at the New Disney Short Film, FEAST

If I mention a movie called FEAST (especially during October), I'd imagine some of you might think of Jon Gulager's PROJECT GREENLIGHT horror film, right? Well, FEAST is also the title of a new animated short film from first-time director Patrick Osborne (head of animation on PAPERMAN) and Walt Disney Animation Studios, Opening ahead of Disney's BIG HERO 6 (get tix from Fandango) on November 7, FEAST "is the story of one man’s love life as seen through the eyes of his best friend and dog, Winston, and revealed bite by bite through the meals they share." Check out a preview below, right here on THE ROCK FATHER...

Check out a brief bit of test footage featuring Rocket Raccoon and Star-Lord below...

Watch & Listen: First STAR WARS REBELS Music Video and Single Released, Droids in Distress Recap...

rebelssingleLast night, STAR WARS REBELS had it's official premiere on Disney XD after a few weeks of anticipation fueled by the one-hour launch movie, SPARK OF REBELLION (more on that here). Two episodes in and it's a hit here at Rock Father HQ, capturing yours truly in a way that THE CLONE WARS just couldn't, and captivating my little ones as their proper Jedi (or Sith?) training has begun. With the official premiere came the first appearance by some familiar droids - C-3PO and R2-D2 - and the release of the first music video and single inspired by the new show. Check out Kevin Kiner's "Rebels Theme (Flux Pavillion's The Ghost Remix)" below, along with the REBELS RECON recap of "Droids in Distress."

Royal Adventures: Rocking the Kingdom of Rock Fatheria with the #DisneyBeauties

This #DisneyBeauties post has been compensated by #CollectiveBias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are that of James Zahn, aka "The Rock Father."
Royal Adventures

When Lorde sang that "we'll never be Royals," it was immediately clear that she's not yet a parent. If she were, then she'd fully realize that it's not only possible, but incredibly likely to become Royals on a fairly frequent basis - a transformation that can occur several times a week, or during some phases - every, single day. You see, my wife and I are raising a pair of daughters - each of which occasionally displays traits that reflect the true spirit of a Disney Princess. The kindness of Snow White... the heroic spark for adventure of Merida... the grace of Sleeping Beauty... the wonder of Sofia the First, the attitude of Princess Leia (hey, she's Disney now!) and even, the cleaning skill of Cinderella. Yes, that, too. It's not just one thing that represents a Princess in The Kingdom of Rock Fatheria™, but a lot of elements that come together for a series of regular Royal Adventures.

31 Days of Halloween: SOFIA THE FIRST: THE HALLOWEEN BALL (Book)

We just caught what I believe is the second Halloween episode of Disney Junior's SOFIA THE FIRST this past Friday, and if your little ones want to keep that pumpkin-y adventure going like mine do, there's a book available to do just that. SOFIA THE FIRST: THE HALLOWEEN BALL is a 24-page paperback from Disney Press that includes a set of sparkly stickers and can be found for under five bucks at retailers everywhere. I picked up a copy for my little Princesses, and there's a good chance that you might want to, too!

Holiday Gift Guide: Disney Princess Palace Pets Magic Dance Pumpkin (Review)

Holiday 2014If you've recently been inside a retailer that happens to have a toy section, you've probably come across a display for Blip Toys' Disney Princess Palace Pets Magic Dance Pumpkin. Pegged by kids and insiders (guys like me) as one of 2014's Hot Holiday Toys, there's good reason: It's cute, well-built, and the little ones love it. In fact, we've had our Pumpkin for nearly two months already, and she's used daily. Imagine if you will, that Cinderella received an adorable little puppy from Prince Charming as an anniversary gift. That puppy is little Pumpkin, and in this version, she's an interactive, talking, moving, singing radio-controlled pet.

The HOT WHEELS STAR WARS Series is coming...

As previously reported, there's a few different collections of STAR WARS HOT WHEELS headed for retail in the near future, and while the interestingly-shaped "character cars" may be the big draw, Walmart stores across the country will soon see STAR WARS-themed rides hitting the pegs (likely a dump bin, actually) sometime between now and Christmas. Following the tradition of exclusive, licensed sets (this past week saw a BATMAN 75th Anniversary collection, along with one based on THE FAST & THE FURIOUS movies hit stores), the HOT WHEELS STAR WARS Series will feature eight cars in deco and packaging representing The Original Trilogy, The Prequel Trilogy, The Clone Wars and the just-launched STAR WARS REBELS. Check out the packages below, as revealed on the HWC site...
