As part of a sponsored post for Click Communications and their client, I actually allowed the babies to eat popcorn in my living room for family movie night. As always, all opinions, ideas, photos, and messes in my floor are entirely my own.
You might be asking yourself what in the world would make me break my own rules and allow eating in my living room. Was it a temporary moment of insanity? Was I just tired of being the warden? Nope. We received an early release copy of Disney Channel’s popular animated TV series, Gravity Falls, and we decided to sit down as a family, with popcorn, for a fun family movie night with these Six Strange Tales.
Welcome to Gravity Falls…
It’s Just West of Weird…
Slightly East of Eerie…
And Always North of Normal!
As soon as I turned on the movie, the babies were glued to the TV and their popcorn. I love hearing their laughter and these six episodes were side-splitting funny. This was a much needed break in our busy school/work schedules. And surprisingly, I didn’t even have a coronary when Bubby spilled his popcorn…ON MY CARPET! I was in that good of a mood.
“In this animated adventure comedy riddled with mystery, twin brother and sister Dipper and Mabel are sent to spend their summer vacation with their great uncle. Upon arrival, their great uncle, also known as Grunkle Stan, enlists the siblings’ help in running The Mystery Shack, a fun tourist trap he owns that overcharges unsuspecting customers. While Dipper has a hard time getting used to his new surroundings, Mabel’s upbeat optimism comes in handy in her quest to find true love. When Dipper stumbles upon an elusive book, he discovers that it is the key to unlocking the town’s mysterious secrets, and the brother and sister duo soon realize they must rely on one another to navigate the unfamiliar place.”
The DVD comes with some pretty cool perks too. You score some Disney Movie Rewards, 75 points for this movie, that you can use to purchase cool stuff like Disney Blu-rays and DVDs, fun merchandise, and even movie admission. There’s an offer to join the Disney Movie Club where you can pick 4 Disney movies for just $1.00 when you sign up for membership, then you can purchase all of the latest Disney movies at fabulous prices. Plus you’ll get a free exclusive mystery book, Journal #3, for added fun and adventure.
These mysterious and hilarious tales kept my babies entertained and happy for over 2 hours. I have to admit, I giggled quite a bit myself. Not sure if it was at the movie or at their laughter, but it doesn’t matter. We had fun and that’s all that counts.
Disney Gravity Falls Six Strange Tales will be available on DVD in stores on Tuesday, October 15th. I’m telling you, you won’t want to miss this. Espisodes include: Tourist Trapped, The Legend of the Gobblewonker, Headhunters, The Hand That Rocks the Mabel, The Inconveniencing, and Dipper vs. Manliness.
