Marvel’s Black Panther is Opening Soon – Let’s Celebrate with a Giveaway!

All reports have this new Marvel movie being a hit! I have read many great reviews about the design and the cast.  Black Panther is an upcoming superhero film based on the Marvel Comics superhero Black Panther. It is a sequel to Avengers: Age of Ultron and Captain America: Civil War, and will also be the eighteenth installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Marvel’s Black Panther follows an African king named T’Challa with superhuman strength and intellect, who presides over the fictional nation of Wakanda. There are sequences in “Black Panther” that may make you cry because of where they go and what they say.

About Black Panther

After the death of his father, T’Challa returns home to the African nation of Wakanda to take his rightful place as king. When a powerful enemy suddenly reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king – and as Black Panther – gets tested when he’s drawn into a conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people.

TellTale Games brill video game #TheWolfAmongUs was released 4 YEARS AGO (based on Vertigo Comics “FABLES” comic series), and BLOODY MARY” is one of the TASTIEST roles I’ve had the honor of bringing to LIFE at the MIC (huge kudos JULIAN KWASNESKI – one of the finest #VoiceOver directors I’ve had the pleasure to Voice for).

Banshee Giveaway! Pandora-The World of Avatar Banshee Giveaway!

If you have visited Disney’s Animal Kingdom recently, you know there were NO BANSHEE’S available for adoption! I know my family was disappointed last week that none were available. Since we visit often, I hope I can get one for my granddaughter on my next trip. But – you’re in luck! On a recent trip another blogger was able to get one for us to use for a giveaway!

Pandora – The World of Avatar Banshee Giveaway

Pandora - The World of Avatar

Walt Disney World Resort Blockbuster Summer

You know me, so you know I love Disney! Every summer is exciting at the Walt Disney World Resort, but this “blockbuster summer” is filled with extra magic as Pandora – The World of Avatar is now open. This whole new land at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park offers “out of this world” sites, experiences and attractions. Stepping into the lush tropical landscape, walking under the massive floating mountains and experiencing all that Pandora has to offer is absolutely breathtaking and I’ve partnered with a few of my Disney-loving, blogging pals to share a piece of the magic with one of our lucky readers.

Avatar Flight of Passage

Pandora Mountain Banshees

After riding your own banshee through waves and into caves on ‘Avatar Flight of Passage,’ you can head to Windtraders and adopt one from their very own banshee rookery. Well, usually, you’re able to adopt one. Currently, the cute little creatures were so popular, you’ll have to wait for the next batch to hatch and be ready for adoption, but we have one looking for its forever home today! That’s right! One lucky reader from one of the following blogs will win their very own mountain banshee straight from Pandora – The World of Avatar. Here’s a photo and video of the one you will be entering to win. I’m sorry, the perch is NOT included, but the shoulder perch accessories will come with it.
