One of my favorite Marvel movies is the Ant-Man series. So, you can imagine how thrilled I was when I got to attend Disney Studios Ant-Man and The Wasp Blogger Press Day. Read on and I’ll share what I’ve learned about the upcoming Blu-Ray Release on October 16th!
I have a confession to make…I didn’t know much about Marvel until I met my now husband. He has watched every Marvel movie and taken me along with him. We have been with each other all of our adult lives, so I consider myself practically an expert when it comes to Marvel movie trivia.
Why do we love Ant-Man and The Wasp?
My absolute favorite Marvel movies are the Ant-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy series. Why? Because these heroes are hilarious and don’t have a self-important air about them. I guess it’s easy to relate them. Contrary to what my better half says, it has nothing to do with their appearance 😉
I love the father-daughter connection in this movie. Ant-Man does whatever it takes to be there for his little girl. This is a great message that I love in this movie.
Female Hero and Special Effects
Ant-Man and The Wasp is also a favorite with the girls in my house. First of all, you have a woman super-hero that is a total bad-ass. She’s so awesome that she has to teach Ant-Man how to fight and be a superhero. Second, the special effects in the movie are crazy fun. We love how things like candy dispensers become huge, or buildings suddenly shrink.
I know I said that those special effects are my daughters’ favorite, but… check me out at the Ant-Man and The Wasp Blogger Press Day. I think I was the first one to run over to the big shoe to get a picture.
Magic is another element of the Ant-Man and the Wasp Movie that my family loved. Ant-Man is under house arrest throughout the entire movie. But being the awesome Dad that he is, he wants to entertain his daughter when she comes over to visit. That’s where all of the magic comes in during the movie!
Blogger Press Day Experience
Magician Blake Vogt was the Magic Consultant for the Ant-Man and The Wasp. He taught Paul Rudd (aka Ant-Man) how to perform the magic tricks in the movie. Did you think these were CGI? Wrong. He really did learn these tricks and perform them on camera!
Check out what Blake Vogt had to say about Paul Rudd learning one of the magic tricks for the movie:
Blake also taught Abby Ryder Fortson (aka Ant Man’s daughter) some magic tricks. She showed us a trick live and I still don’t know how she did it.
I had a great time hearing about the magic in the movie. Abby Fortson and Blake Vogt were a lot of fun!
