I was THRILLED to be able to say “YES” to attend an incredible Disney sponsored event starting this weekend to celebrate the premiere of Ralph Breaks the Internet AND get a unique experience with new ABC shows Single Parents and The Rookie (we actually already watch both!). There is a movie premiere party, VR experience, visit to the Walt Disney Studios and even pancake art involved so you’ll definitely want to follow along!
I’ll mostly be sharing on Instagram at Allison Waken and All for the Boys as well as on Twitter. The boys and my nieces are super excited to see Ralph Breaks the Internet so I can’t wait to tell them all about it. If you aren’t caught up on your entertainment news here’s what we’ll be seeing/getting to experience:
Ralph Breaks the Internet
“Video-game bad guy Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) and best friend Vanellope (voice of Sarah Silverman) leave the comforts of Litwak’s arcade in an attempt to save her game. Their quest takes them to the vast world of the internet, a world Vanellope wholeheartedly embraces—so much so that Ralph worries he may lose the only friend he’s ever had.” Ralph Breaks the Internet officially opens in theaters November 21.
Have you SEEN the trailers? The princess scene just cracks me up! Love them all in their comfy clothes.
“Single Parents” airs on Wednesdays at 9:30|8:30c on ABC, and can also be watched via streaming (ABC app/ABC.com/Hulu) and on demand so you can catch up!
This ensemble comedy follows a group of single parents as they lean on each other to help raise their 7-year-old kids and maintain some kind of personal lives outside of parenthood.
The series begins when the group meets Will Cooper, a 30-something guy who’s been so focused on raising his daughter that he’s lost sight of who he is as a man. When the other single parents see just how far down the rabbit hole of PTA, parenting and princesses Will has gone, they band together to get him out in the world and make him realize that being a great parent doesn’t mean sacrificing everything about your own identity.
The series stars Taran Killam as Will Cooper, Leighton Meester as Angie D’Amato, Kimrie Lewis as Poppy Banks, Jake Choi as Miggy Park, Marlow Barkley as Sophie Cooper, Tyler Wladis as Graham D’Amato, Devin Trey Campbell as Rory Banks, Mia Allan as Emma Fogerty, Ella Allan as Amy Fogerty and Brad Garrett as Douglas Fogerty.
This is my favorite show from this Fall I think. So funny!
“The Rookie” airs Tuesdays at 10|9c on The ABC Television Network and is also available streaming (ABC app/ABC.com/Hulu) and on demand.
Starting over isn’t easy, especially for small-town guy John Nolan who, after a life-altering incident, is pursuing his dream of being a Los Angeles police officer. As the force’s oldest rookie, he’s met with skepticism from some higher-ups who see him as just a walking midlife crisis. If he can’t keep up with the young cops and the criminals, he’ll be risking lives including his own. But if he can use his life experience, determination and sense of humor to give him an edge, he may just become a success in this new chapter of his life.
The series stars Nathan Fillion as John Nolan, Alyssa Diaz as Angela Lopez, Richard T. Jones as Sergeant Wade Grey, Titus Makin as Jackson West, Mercedes Mason as Captain Zoe Andersen, Melissa O’Neil as Lucy Chen, Afton Williamson as Talia Bishop and Eric Winter as Tim Bradford.
We just started watching this one and it’s so good! Drama with some humor thrown in.
