Last June, we were immensely honored to be guests at an advanced screening of Disney's The BFG. We were very excited about the event, and I must say that I fell in love with the film. It is incredible how a little bit of magic can bring the work of different artists to life, in a way that you automatically feel connected with a world beyond imagination. Visually, this film was a dream, and that doesn't surprise me as this film is about capturing them. We all have many dreams, however, some of them are constants in our lives that remind us of what our hearts truly desire. That is how those dreams become; our hopes, our goals, our passions, and ultimately our happiness. As soon as the movie ended, I knew I wanted this film as part of our family movie collection. With this in mind, I am very proud to be able to announce the upcoming release of this movie with all of our online community.

Share your dreams
Learning about other people's hopes and dreams can be truly inspiring, and it can ultimately help us get inspired as well. At least, that is how I felt after seeing all the beautiful and fun dreams displayed throughout the movie. This is why I am sharing my Pinterest Dream board with all you, in hopes of getting you motivated into creating one of your own. To see it, just click on the image below and feel free to re-pin anything you like to your own Dream Board. This is a great tool to keep you on track whenever things don't go exactly as planned, and as a reminder of the things you love the most. I think in a way, that is the lesson in this story; you are never too old nor too young, too big or too small, to follow your heart and fulfill your dreams.

Now, don't forget to continue reading to learn more about the release of Disney's The BFG, on Blu-ray/DVD and Digital Copy, and about the wonderful people behind the creation of this magnificent film. One lucky follower will also get the chance to win their very own Digital Copy, so that they can bring the magic of The BFG into their home.
