This has been a fun stay around the house weekend. When we weren't outside enjoying the warmer temps, we were snuggling up on the couch and watching a handful of new and upcoming DVDs that have been sent to us recently. One DVD, which the girls absolutely loved and watched a handful of times from Friday up until this evening was the upcoming LEGO® Friends: Girlz 4 Life from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. I never would have guessed this to be their favorite of all the DVDs we were sent, as Savannah is not usually a fan of the show. But, Bella was so excited for the DVD that she got Savannah excited and they acted out the scenes from the movie -- while either pausing the DVD or asking to see the scene over again. They really got into it, and it was nice to see them playing nice together and using their imaginations to set the scene and recite the lines from the characters.
Here is more about this upcoming release, including the official trailer, which arrives in stores on February 2nd--
"In LEGO® Friends: Girlz 4 Life, our friends must devise and execute a plan—and fast—when popstar Livi’s manager steals the girls’ hit song: Girlz. As Livi gains more fame and recognition from the new hit single, the girls try to share the truth behind the song in hopes that Livi will do the right thing. As the friends set their plan into motion, they come to realize that fame doesn’t mean everything and friendship is the most precious thing in the world! Join Olivia, Stephanie, Emma, Mia and Andrea as they learn one of life’s most important lessons while having fun along the way.
LEGO® Friends: Girlz 4 Life will be available on Blu-rayTM Combo Pack for $24.98 SRP and DVD for $19.98 SRP. The Blu-rayTM Combo Pack includes a digital version of the movie on Digital HD with UltraViolet.* Fans can also own LEGO® Friends: Girlz 4 Life on Digital HD on January 19, via purchase from digital retailers.
“Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is thrilled to team up with The LEGO® Group once again to release LEGO® Friends: Girlz 4 Life on Blu-rayTM , DVD and Digital HD,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Vice President, Family & Animation Marketing. “Fans of the LEGO® Friends television program and line of construction toys will feel right at home in Heartlake City with the always confident and fun group of girlfriends in this new film.”
Just we warned, the songs from the movie are really catchy. I have found myself singing along and humming the tunes while going about my stuff. Fans of LEGO® Friends will definitely want to add this new movie to their growing LEGO® Friends DVD collection. Or, if you are new to this popular series, this is one movie that will make you an instant fan. Themes of friendship, teamwork and perseverance are seen in this and other LEGO® Friends movies/episodes, which is great for young girls to watch and learn about. I highly recommend this movie for readers with young girls. Tweens will even love this series.
