#D23ExpoThis special feature is brought to you in collaboration between The Rock Father™ and The Walt Disney Company

This week is a unique one in that I'm gearing up for a full seven days of travel - the longest stretch that I've ever been away from home since becoming "The Rock Father." That means it's the longest I've been away from my wife and our girls, but it will be worth it since what I'm doing is part of the greater good - a mix of work and play that directly relates to having fun as a family, and spreading that goodness throughout the virtual pages of The Rock Father™ Magazine. While the entire week will be massive, the end will be epic as I wrap one gig in New York City, then head straight to Los Angeles to meet up with the Disney crew for the D23 Expo and Disneyland Summer of Heroes. One big focus for me will be the launch of Disney XD's DuckTales, but my group will also be taking part in activities and events from Disney, Marvel, Lucasfilm, ABC Network and more, and I'll be bringing you the latest news and features direct from the show floor of "The Ultimate Disney Fan Event" - July 13-16, 2017!

At the Chicago Toy & Game Fair the past few years, there's been an organization present that makes incredibly detailed cardboard structures. In essence, they're simply cardboard box forts, but with the type of ingenuity employed by whoever's running Arby's social networks (seriously, they might have "the meats," but they also have "the papercraft"). One might wonder what surprises lurk inside these cardboard villages, and with that in mind DAVE MADE A MAZE might provide a possible answer. The film from Gravitas Ventures hits theaters and On-Demand on August 18, and today we have a trailer that you're going to want to see. Check this out...

L. Frank Baum's iconic Oz books have spawned stories that have been reimagined across several generations, and this summer the legend grows once more with the debut of the Amazon Original Kids Series Lost in Oz.

When the Netflix Original Series BEAT BUGS made its debut in 2016, families were quickly immersed in a vibrant new world inspired by the timeless music of THE BEATLES.  Following the adventures of five best friends -- Jay, Kumi, Crick, Buzz and Walter -- who band together to discover life's most important lessons in an overgrown suburban backyard -- Beat Bugs encourages lessons of friendship and problem-solving while introducing a new generation to some of the greatest songs of all-time. Mixing classic and contemporary, here The Beatles' music is performed by an all-star line-up of artists including Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder, Pink, Robbie Williams, Sia, Rod Stewart, Regina Spektor, James Corden, and late Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell. With two seasons already streaming in full on Netflix, the Beat Bugs adventures are just getting started...

It's a pretty big week for Star Wars, and something tells me that there's still some more news yet to come. As folks continue to discuss the forthcoming Han Solo movie and its production set to continue under filmmaker Ron Howard, some attention is turning to the upcoming Star Wars Forces of Destiny, which will debut in animated form next week. Additionally, Star Wars Rebels' third season will be hitting Blu-ray this fall, and there's a new episode of The Star Wars Show that covers everything that I've just mentioned here... and then some. Ready to watch some videos? Here we go...

As we cross the mid-point in the year, it's roughly 180 days until Christmas. Indeed, the holiday season is a big deal here at Rock Father HQ, and over the years that spirit has made its way into the virtual pages of THE ROCK FATHER™ Magazine via my annual Holiday Wish Guide™, and my ongoing seasonal lists of new release holiday music and movies. With that comes one of 2017's first Christmas movies, and this one is a bit unexpected since it's from the BAD MOMS... a known favorite among readers and friends of the site. This November, get ready for A BAD MOMS CHRISTMAS! See the "Red Band" (Restricted) trailer below! Believe me, it's naughty - so don't watch with the kids in the room. You have been warned, but there's a cleaner version here.

In Short: After five films, TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT closes the book on a decade on cinematic adventures from Michael Bay and Co., but blasts a door wide open for more Autobots & Decepticons yet to come...

It's been ten years since Michael Bay launched TRANSFORMERS into the live-action realm, his Steven Spielberg-produced 2007 epic arriving in theaters more than two decades after the animated classic, TRANSFORMERS: THE MOVIE hit theater screens back in 1986. As a kid who grew up on the original series and Hasbro toys that started with 1984's "Generation One," my excitement for Bay's film series was a given - and for the past decade I've been there, capping it off by attending the U.S. premiere of TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT, the fifth film in the series, and what's being touted as "The Final Chapter" for Bay's run on the franchise.

The Walt Disney Signature Collection has been bringing movie fans all-new editions of some of the biggest classics from Walt Disney Animation Studios. Launching with Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Beauty and the Beast and Pinocchio have also received the Signature treatment, and the latest to appear is the 1942 classic, Bambi. We have a strange relationship with that film here in our house... quite simply, my wife won't watch it. Still, that didn't stop us from making that our second film in our latest run of Disney Movies Under the Stars in our backyard theater here at Rock Father HQ with the Bambi Anniversary Edition.

This Disney Movies Under the Stars Backyard Theater feature is presented in collaboration with The Walt Disney Company

It was last year that something finally happened that I'd been hoping to do for a very long while... we finally put together a backyard theater here at Rock Father HQ. In partnership with Disney, we started an outdoor movie series right in our own backyard - and it was awesome. Movies are best enjoyed in a group, and while a great cinema experience is fantastic, there's something special about seeing a movie outdoors. Drive-in theaters are the best, and of course there's movies in the park - but now technology has caught up to the point where it's affordable for families to host some screenings at home. First up for our 2017 season? Disney's live-action reimagining of Beauty and the Beast!
