For those that will be in the Hollywood, California area on the evening of Friday, January 11, Living Social and the El Capitan Theatre are now making tickets available to attend a special screening of Disney’s Peter Pan along with a special panel for just $11 per ticket.
Take flight for wonder and excitement with this offer: Pay $11 for one ticket to see Peter Pan playing at the El Capitan Theatre on January 11. Prior to the start of the movie, guests will be treated to a special panel discussion. This special panel discussion will be moderated by Leonard Maltin and will include conversations with Kathryn Beaumont (voice of Wendy), Ted Thomas (son of legendary Disney animator Frank Thomas and director/writer of the acclaimed documentaries Frank and Ollie and Walt & El Grupo), and Margaret Kerry (live-action reference model for Tinker Bell). This classic tale taught us all ‘to believe,’ introducing us to the Darling children — Wendy, John and Michael — as they flew with Peter Pan and Tinker Bell past the second star to the right and straight on ’til morning to the enchanted world of Never Land.
Audiences will also be entertained with a never-before-seen episode of Disney Jr’s Jake and the Never Land Pirates, plus an appearance by Jake, live on stage!

‘Wreck-It Ralph’ Viral Video #2: ‘The Fix-It Felix Hammer by Fix-It Felix, Jr.,’ Owl City Video Released
Yesterday we brought you the first viral video for Wreck-It Ralph, a ‘behind the music’-style expose on Wreck-It Ralph titled ‘Behind the Screens.’ Today, Walt Disney Animation Studios has shared its second video, ‘The Fix-It Felix Hammer by Fix-It Felix, Jr.’ which is a take on the classic ‘as seen on tv’ ads. It’s not quite as spectacular in our opinion and we’re not sure why they didn’t jump on the opportunity to call the ‘Mini Fix-It Felix Jr.’ the ‘Fix-It Felix Jr. Junior’ instead, but hey.
Also being released today is the first music video for the film, Owl City’s ‘When Can I See You Again?’ from the original motion picture soundtrack available on Tuesday.
As an anonymous expert once famously put it, ‘video game characters? they’re a lot more complicated than you think.’ And thanks to Walt Disney Studios NZ, we’ve uncovered this shocking expose on the villain Wreck-It Ralph from the classic 1982 arcade video game, ‘Fix-It Felix, Jr.’ According to the documentary, filmed a la VH1′s ‘Behind the Music,’ we learn that life wasn’t always smashing for Ralph and how he broke new ground (as well as other things) trying to change his life for the better.
A new clip titled ‘Ralph and Vanellope Make a Deal’ has also been released in which Ralph goes on a rampage after learning the medal he got in ‘Hero’s Duty’ may be lost forever unless he forges a deal with Vanellope and helps her take first place in a round of ‘Sugar Rush,’ in which the odds are stacked incredibly high against her.
Wreck-It Ralph crashes into theaters on November 2, 2012. Tickets are also still available to see it early in New York City on Sunday, October 28 at the IFC Center via the New York International Children’s Film Festival. For more information or to purchase tickets, click here.
Disney D23, the official fan club for The Walt Disney Company, has announced that it will be offering its members the opportunity to see Wreck-It Ralph from Walt Disney Animation Studios during the week of October 22 for free, ahead of the film’s official opening on November 2, 2012

Admission to the actual screening is also first come, first serve and is not guaranteed.
Although the event page does not mention it, it’s worth noting that when Disney D23 made the same offers earlier this year for pre-release screenings, it required an account on seeitfirst.net, so you may want to ensure you have an account on it and can access it in advance just in case.

Walt Disney Pictures has announced that it will be offering free screenings of its upcoming family film, The Odd Life of Timothy Green, nationwide beginning later this month. Free tickets to the screenings are now available through the SEE tab of the film’s See & Share app on Facebook. Tickets are available on a limited basis and it should be noted that while specific cities are listed, such as New York, the actual screening location may be elsewhere in the metro area.
The film stars Jennifer Garner and Joel Edgerton as a childless couple who want nothing more than to be able to star their own family, but can only dream about what their child would be like. When young Timothy (CJ Adams) shows up on their doorstep one stormy night, Cindy and Jim — and their small town of Stanleyville—learn that sometimes the unexpected can bring some of life’s greatest gifts.
The Odd Life of Timothy Green sprouts into theaters on August 15, 2012.
