This is an all expenses paid trip sponsored by Disney in exchange for my event coverage. This post and all #JungleBookEvent posts will be sponsored by Disney.
I am so excited to tell everyone about my upcoming trip to LA! First of all, I want to thank all of you for your support and dedication to Women and Their Pretties. It’s because of all of you that I am able to cover incredible events like this one. I am going to Los Angeles, California from April 3rd to April 5th to walk the red carpet at the big premiere of The Jungle Book and guess what? You’re all coming with me. Just follow the hashtag #JungleBookEvent because I will be posting, tweeting, live streaming, and sharing as much as I possibly can. I want all of you to feel like you are a part of this too! I don’t have my exact itinerary just yet, but I can tell you what I do know.
You can expect a live broadcast on Periscope (@JoyceDuboise) while I am mingling on the red carpet for The Jungle Book premiere– yes, I said LIVE. You never know know who we might see. I am personally hoping to run into Bill Murray, Christopher Walken, or Scarlett Johansson – all stars of The Jungle Book. I just hope that whomever I see, you get to see them with me. I will be wearing my beautiful red carpet dress (check out the sneak peek below) and will be completely glammed up. You can expect a ton of photos on and off of the red carpet.
Follow me on Periscope, so you can keep up with my sightings and communicate with me live!
Along with the premiere of The Jungle Book, we will be interviewing Neel Sethi, the actor who plays Mowgli and Jon Favreau, the Director of The Jungle Book (and a legend in my book). I will be live tweeting (@JoyceDuboise) during the interviews to give all of you the inside scoop! You can expect direct quotes, fun facts, and so much more on Twitter.
Follow me on Twitter so you can keep up with the interviews, red carpet sightings, and more live coverage!
I am sure that we will be adding much more to our schedule and when we do, I will be sure to update you right here. Until then, you can clear your schedule for the entire family to see The Jungle Book opening weekend! Watch this trailer and be sure to share the love with everyone. This is going to be a must-see in theaters and I suspect that there will be a lot of nostalgia coming from this movie. I will be binge watching the original The Jungle Book and watching all of Jon Favreau’s movies to prepare.
3/19 UPDATED SCHEDULE – Walk The Prank
Our schedule was just updated and I am so excited! On April 5th, before returning home (boo), we will be watching a special screening for the hilarious new hidden camera-practical joker series, “Walk The Prank”. Featuring live-action scripted comedy interspersed with fully produced unscripted pranks, the show follows an ensemble cast as they plan and execute hilarious over-the-top pranks for an online hidden camera show. After the screening, we will be going to Paramount Studios where we will view products for an upcoming episode and we will be interviewing cast members of the show! How exciting is that? I told my Godson and he was so excited! He wanted me to ask them if they liked turtles (don't ask). haha. I think it's safe to say that we are all looking forward to this one! Follow me on this journey by using the hashtag, #WalkthePrank
“Walk the Prank” premieres 4/6 at 8:30 pm on Disney XD
3/23 UPDATED SCHEDULE – New Interviews
I am so incredibly excited. Three, yes THREE, more interviews were secured for our The Jungle Book press junket! We will be interviewing some of the most talented and profound actors in the industry today. I am honored to say that that Lupita Nyong'o (voice of “Raksha”), Sir Ben Kingsley (voice of “Bagheera”) and Giancarlo Esposito (voice of “Akela”) have just been added to the itinerary! There are just no words to express how thankful and ecstatic I am!
Check out each actors quotes about their character and their roles in The Jungle Book.
Be sure to follow me on Twitter because I will be tweeting about these interviews LIVE! @JoyceDuboise
3/28 UPDATED SCHEDULE – The Premiere party
Our tentative itinerary was sent to us today and we will be attending the official The Jungle Book premiere party at the OHM Nightclub on Hollywood Boulevard! That means we will most likely be mingling with some incredible celebrities and talent. What am I going to do with myself? This is going to be so surreal. I can't believe it! I hope I manage to keep myself calm and collected. I will definitely be taking photos and hopefully streaming live! Be sure to keep coming back for more!
