Giveaway: Win a FERDINAND Movie Prize Pack!

From Blue Sky Studios and Carlos Saldanha, the director of RIO,  and inspired by the beloved book THE STORY OF FERDINAND by Munro Leaf and Robert Lawson, FERDINAND is a new animated feature that tells the story of a giant bull with a big heart. Starring WWE Superstar John Cena as the voice of Ferdinand, the film weaves a tale of a dangerous beast... or, a bull that's been mistaken for a dangerous beast, leading to his capture and removal from his home. Set in Spain, FERDINAND follows this friendly bull as he rallies a misfit team to embark on the ultimate adventure home. Now, in celebration of its release, 20th Century Fox, Blue Sky Studios and The Rock Father™ have teamed-up to give you a chance to win a FERDINAND Prize Pack! The movie is already getting great buzz, with Nick Jonas snagging a Golden Globe nomination for his original song, "Home." Check out the trailer below...

THE PEANUTS MOVIE (reviewed here) was one of our favorite movies of this past year, and after an early release on DigitalHD, it's coming home on Blu-ray and DVD on March 8th. With Easter fast-approaching, I can't help thinking that THE PEANUTS MOVIE would make a great Easter Basket Filler, and with that in mind, 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment and THE ROCK FATHER Magazine are giving readers a shot at winning the Walmart-Exclusive Limited-Edition Gift Set. The special bundle includes THE PEANUTS MOVIE on Blu-ray Combo Pack, alongside a Snoopy Plush Toy!

PEANUTS Worldwide Brand AmbassadorI can remember a few occasions as a kid where I participated with Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF back in the 80s, but truth be told, I haven't seen those iconic orange boxes hitting the streets here locally in quite awhile. Hopefully, that will change this year,  as the iconic Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF campaign is celebrating its 65th anniversary by joining forces with another American classic: PEANUTS, which also turns 65 this Fall.  Blue Sky Studios' THE PEANUTS MOVIE will team up with Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF to encourage children to raise funds for UNICEF’s lifesaving programs. The original Kids Helping Kids® campaign—is one of the longest-running youth volunteer initiatives in America that encourages children to go door-to-door on Halloween and collect coins in support of UNICEF’s work. Since 1950, Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF has raised more than $175 million for UNICEF to provide children around the world with medicine, nutrition, clean water, emergency relief and education.

It's Snoopy's Birthday, Charlie Brown!

PEANUTS WorldwideBefore the word "Snoop" went hand-in-hand with the D-O Double-G, there was simply Snoopy - a loveable beagle created by Charles M. Schulz way back in 1950. While we knew the first year that the dog hit the scene, it wasn't until the late 1960s that we knew that Snoopy's birthday was actually August 10th. While he'd be 65 years old in human years, Snoopy turns 273 today (according to the Dog Years Converter) and he looks absolutely fabulous as we look forward to the release of THE PEANUTS MOVIE from 20th Century Fox and Blue Sky Studios on November 6th. With celebrations taking place around the 'net, here's a few of the best...

PEANUTSOn November 6, one of my most-anticipated films of the year will fly into theaters like the Red Baron pursuing Snoopy... THE PEANUTS MOVIE. Having been covering this one long before I partnered with PEANUTS Worldwide as an Official Brand Ambassador for Charlie Brown and the gang, the arrival of the film's second full-length trailer has only raised the excitement level here at Rock Father HQ, appropriately-soundtracking this taste of new adventure with a little song called "Baba O'Riley" by THE WHO. Check it out below, right here on THE ROCK FATHER Magazine via iTunes Trailers.

THE ROCK FATHER is a PEANUTS Brand AmbassadorThis past weekend, Valentine's Day got an early start with a very special PEANUTS-themed party featuring SNOOPY and his sister BELLE. Co-hosted by "the Little Red-Haired Girl" herself—aka Francesca Capaldi (DOG WITH A BLOG), the 10-year-old actress who plays the character in this Fall's THE PEANUTS MOVIE - the party took place at the Park Hyatt in Carlsbad, California, where Capaldi and friends tried on the latest Snoopy and his Sister Belle fashions from Target, danced to DJ-provided tunes, and decorated cupcakes with decorations from Cakes.com. Of course, they also enjoyed watching the classic Peanuts special, BE MY VALENTINE, CHARLIE BROWN, set to air on ABC alongside A CHARLIE BROWN VALENTINE on February 13th at 8pmEST/7pmCT. While my girls and I weren't able to make the party in-person (2,000 miles would've been a long drive), Pastry Chef Franck Riffaud of the Park Hyatt Aviara was kind enough to share his recipe for chocolate cake (or cupcakes) so that we could play along at home... and so YOU can as well! As a PEANUTS BRAND Ambassador, I'm helping to spread some Valentine's Day love with The Ultimate Snoopy & Belle Valentine's Prize Pack. One (1) lucky winner will score a fantastic "party in a box," while everyone can enjoy some delicious cake as we did here today!
