Time flies, but it's already been more than two years since our first trip to JURASSIC WORLD. Now, we're in for a return on June 22, 2018, and the first trailer for JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM has arrived. In this new adventure, a rescue mission is in order as the dinosaurs find themselves in danger of extinction once more, opening new debate to what kind of protection these genetically-resurrected animals should be entitled to. Check out the trailer below!

Adam Driver says "Kylo Ren is a Big Christmas Guy"

Written by

This past weekend, Disney and Lucasfilm played host to the global media event for STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI. The cast and crew gathered in downtown L.A. to meet with press, and one group was an in-house team - namely, THE STAR WARS SHOW. Today their latest episode was released, and hosts Anthony Carboni and Andi Gutierrez sit down with director Rian Johnson, along with John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Laura Dern, Oscar Issac, Kelly Marie Tran, Domhnall Gleeson, and Mark Hamill. Who knew that Kylo Ren was "a big Christmas guy?" According to Adam Driver, Kylo is all about "the giving." That's not a huge surprise, as you can purchase a Kylo Ren Nutcracker, so that's pretty festive. Check out the latest episode of THE STAR WARS SHOW below...

#HolidayWishGuide Giveaway - "JoJo Siwa: My World"

Written by

At our house, it seems like JoJo Siwa came out of nowhere, and that was evident on a recent trip to Walmart when The Rock Daughters™ were scoping her merch and telling us "that's the girl we watch on YouTube." Indeed, her power is mighty, and that's backed by 20 million social media followers (her dog even has a million followers on Instagram). Now, the newest Nickelodeon star is bursting onto DVD with the Walmart exclusive special release of JoJo Siwa: My World. This special DVD release from Nickelodeon Home Entertainment contains JoJo’s first-ever concert special as well as behind-the-scenes content with JoJo herself. JoJo takes fans on a journey through all of the moments of her life that have led her to her very own concert performance at Mall of America. As part of my Holiday Wish GuideGiveaway series here on The Rock Father™ Magazine, I've teamed-up with Nickelodeon to give you a shot at winning JoJo's new DVD!

At the end of J.J. Abrams' 2015 film, STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS, the world witnessed the return of a Jedi Master... Luke Skywalker. Stoic and silent, the film ended on what Mark Hamill calls "a literal cliffhanger," and on December 15, audiences will see the story pick up right where we left off when Rian Johnson's STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI hits screens. This story has nothing to do with either of those films, but much to do it has with the return of another Jedi Master... Yoda. Last seen on the big screen in 1983's RETURN OF THE JEDI, it is of course possible that the little muppet may return for THE LAST JEDI (spoiler?), but it's Recess Monkey's Jack Forman that has brought him back  first. Listeners to Sirius XM's Kids Place Live have been loving "Yodeling Yoda," and now we have a music video to go with it. Wampas? FX-7 Medical Droid? Vintage action figures from the Kenner Star Wars collection? Oh yes, they're all here, right alongside Forman as he does his best to train in the swamps of Dagobah... or somewhere in the Pacific Northwest. Listen and watch, you will!

As the December 15 release date for STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI approaches, we're now getting more new looks at some fresh material from a galaxy far, far away. In a new "training" featurette, the cast gets ready for what promises to be a new era of epic battles with lightsabers, staffs, and even hand-to-hand combat. Check it out below...

In addition to my work here on The Rock Father™ Magazine, I veer off in many directions. As some of you may know, I am a member of The Toy Insider's extended family - contributing to their website as a member of their Parent Advisory Board, and a frequent participant in their excellent toy-based Twitter Parties. When it comes to the holiday season, you'd be hard-pressed to find a Holiday Gift Guide as expansive as the one that The Toy Insider puts together, one that exists in print (together with Family Circle) and online, with selections chosen by a team of experts and sorted by age and interest. Even I chip in with a "Rock Father Pick!" Now, despite the fact that we're often swimming in toys here at Rock Father HQ (much of which we donate), my girls do have a small "wish list," and with that The Toy Insider sent a surprise. In fact, all of the Toy Insider parents received a mystery box, and with ours we did a little early preview of Christmas morning here at home. With just four items, the response from all girls is all that a parent could hope for - and one that makes me really think about the "less is more" approach to Christmas. A few well-targeted gifts will beat the "piles of stuff" any day, and the video below shows just that. Take a look at the video, and then read on for some thoughts on these four Hot Holiday Picks!
