As I mentioned yesterday, Jack saw his first full length feature film at the theater over the weekend.
So what did Jack think of his first movie?
Do you see the "Wow!" on his face?
It was very dark in the theater at first and he did not even register the screen. Once we got settled into our seat (he decided to sit on my lap) with his slushie and his popcorn, he decided to look up and I could not see his face but his head stayed perfectly still. I grabbed my phone and captured this picture.
He loved it! We saw The Princess and The Frog.
As soon as I saw the preview on our Snow White DVD, I knew that The Princess and the Frog would be Jack's first "big movie". The preview showed singing, dancing, and lots of different funny voices. The clincher was Disney's return to hand drawn animation for this movie. Hand drawn cartoons usually have the characters much better defined in the foreground with less detailed and darker backgrounds. In other words, high contrast animation!!!
Jack sat quietly and watched most of the movie. We had one seat change when he decided he wanted to sit on the very front row and I had to explain to him that he could not run up and touch the screen. At the very end, he got a little antsy but the remaining popcorn and slushie were enough to entice him to stay until the end.
Of course, once the movie was over he was
I did get him to stop and pose for me in front of the movie display
His face screams, "I can't believe you are making me do this!"
