Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me! I am headed to LA for the red carpet premiere of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales! #PiratesLifeEvent

****Disney is providing an all-expense paid trip for me to cover this great event ****

I have some very exciting news to tell you all about! I have been invited back to sunny LA to attend an amazing event for the Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, and walk the red carpet at the premiere!  What can I say about that? Well, I have to admit I squealed a little bit...I was at work when I received the news so I could not show my true excitement and scream. Pirates is an awesome franchise and a true Disney classic, to be a part of the premiere 5th installment of the movie is a bit surreal. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales opens in theaters everywhere on May 26th

I will be joining 24 other amazing bloggers traveling to Los Angeles for the event which will run from Wednesday, May 17th – Saturday, May 20th. While there we will be immersed in all things, pirates!  We will be able to walk the red carpet at the Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales premiere!!! Yes, the red carpet! It is time to go dress shopping! Must get that perfect pirate look! I think I am going with classic black, jazzed up with accessories, I have to decide soon!

Red carpet premieres are always so very exciting and you never know who will show up. There are pictures being taken celebrities everywhere it is very cool. This is going to be an awesome red carpet (or will it be black? Hmm? It could very well be tattered... I guess I will see soon!) We will also be attending a press junket where we will interview talent from the film! These are all such talented actors It would be an honor to interview any of them.  Wouldn’t it be amazing to sit down and chat with Johnny Depp? Well, a girl can dream, right?

The movie Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales stars Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow,  Javier Bardem as the terrifying Captain Salazar, Kaya Scodelario  as Carina Smyth,  Kevin R. McNally as Joshamee Gibbs, Brenton Thwaites  as Henry, Golshifteh Farahani as the sea-witch Shansa, David Wenham as Scarfield, Stephen Graham as Scrum, and Geoffrey Rush as Captain Hector Barbossa. Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg are directing “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” with Jerry Bruckheimer producing. 
The rip-roaring adventure finds down-on-his-luck Captain Jack feeling the winds of ill-fortune blowing strongly his way when deadly ghost sailors, led by the terrifying Captain Salazar, escape from the Devil's Triangle bent on killing every pirate at sea—notably Jack. Jack's only hope of survival lies in the legendary Trident of Poseidon, but to find it he must forge an uneasy alliance with Carina Smyth, a brilliant and beautiful astronomer, and Henry, a headstrong young sailor in the Royal Navy. At the helm of the Dying Gull, his pitifully small and shabby ship, Captain Jack seeks not only to reverse his recent spate of ill fortune but to save his very life from the most formidable and malicious foe he has ever faced.
My mother is hoping we have the chance to interview Jerry Bruckheimer. She is a huge fan and when she heard he was the producer she said “I love everything he does” “When I watch a show and I love it, it usually ends up being a Jerry Bruckheimer production, and I know why I loved it”. Mother knows best, right? That would be awesome to interview an amazing Hollywood talent like that.

I recently found out that we will be interviewing

Javier Bardem (“Captain Salazar”)  
Geoffrey Rush (“Barbossa”) 
Brenton Thwaites (“Henry”) 
Kaya Scodelario (“Carina Smyth”) 
Directors Joachim Ronning & Espen Sandberg 
Producer Jerry Bruckheimer 

What a line up!
While we are in town we will be stopping by the Disney Archives to learn about the history of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” attraction and this event wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Disneyland to experience the ride firsthand! We are going to Disneyland!!!!! I feel like I won the Super bowl, and I am screaming out, I am going to Disneyland!!!! Does it seem like I am excited? Can you tell? 
The ride Pirates of the Caribbean is one of Disney’s best, and is currently celebrating its 50th anniversary! Where else can a boat ride take you into another place in time? A place where pirates are running wild and causing all kinds of mischief, well you can on this spectacular Disney ride. I am looking forward to learning more and sharing the history of the ride we all love, and of course, it will be great to get to ride the ride, it never gets old! 
This event will also include a special afternoon celebrating the newest Walt Disney Signature Collection release, Bambi.  To help celebrate this Disney Classic's 75th anniversary we have special opportunity to sit down with two members of the original voice cast, Donnie Dunagan the voice of young "Bambi" and Peter Behn the voice of young "Thumper". 
I was always a fan of Bambi, this is a movie that really pulls at your heartstrings. It makes you laugh it makes you cry (very deep sobbing tears for me) and shows you the love of family. It will be an honor to be able to chat with the folks that helped make you fall in love with these characters.

In  LA we will be staying at the lovely Sheraton Universal Hotel, I have heard that they recently renovated I can’t wait to check out the newest rooms. The trip is less than two weeks away! I am counting down the days!  Be sure to follow along, and virtually join in with TwitterInstagram and Facebook you can follow along from the red carpet, Disneyland & more.

Bambi has been around 75 years?!! WOW!!! That is hard to believe! What a fun opportunity for you to go to these movies. Can't wait to hear more about it.

Sarah said...

Bambi is turning 75 years old? How is that even possible! I do not care for the Pirates of the Caribbean series, I've tried them many times and I just can't get used to the series. I do however LOVE the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disneyland, it is truly one of Disneyland's best rides next to It's A Small World and Haunted Mansion.

Lena said...

I can't wait to see this one - they are getting better and better!

Jaredamy said...

I loved Bambi as a kid! This is going to be a mega fun event!!
