Diane Sullivan/ Walker Scobell-2022

Walker Scobell (“The Adam Project”) has been cast in the titular role in Disney+’s fantastical live action series “Percy Jackson and the Olympians,” it was announced today by the streaming service. The epic adventure is based on—and closely aligned with—Disney Hyperion’s best-selling book series by award-winning author Rick Riordan. The Disney Branded Television series, “Percy Jackson and the Olympians” is produced by 20th Television, a part of Disney Television Studios, and will go into production this summer.

“Percy Jackson and the Olympians” tells the fantastical story of a 12-year-old modern demigod, Percy Jackson, who’s just coming to terms with his newfound supernatural powers when the sky god Zeus accuses him of stealing his master lightning bolt. Now Percy must trek across America to find it and restore order to Olympus. 

Percy Jackson is a smart and compassionate kid with a sharp sense of humor. He’s always seen himself as an outsider, in no small part because of how the world sees his ADHD and dyslexia. He’s impulsive and rambunctious and is quick to anger when things seem unfair to him. But beneath his cynicism is an affectionate son and loyal friend who just wants to do right by those he cares about. If only he could find a place where he fits in.

Riordan and Jon Steinberg will serve as writers of the pilot episode, and James Bobin will direct. Steinberg will oversee the series with his producing partner Dan Shotz. Steinberg and Shotz serve as executive producers alongside Bobin, Riordan, Rebecca Riordan, Bert Salke, Monica Owusu-Breen, Jim Rowe and The Gotham Group’s Ellen Goldsmith-Vein, Jeremy Bell and D.J. Goldberg.

 

About Walker Scobell

When Walker Scobell was five, he learned that his favorite superhero Tony Stark – AKA Iron Man – was not an actual person but an actor playing a role. He decided right then that he wanted to become an actor. He said if he couldn’t become a superhero in real life, the next best thing would be to play one. After attending an actor’s workshop in L.A., Walker began his professional career. His first film acting role was in “The Adam Project,” and he filmed his second movie, “Secret Headquarters,” soon after. Walker loves the movie-making process and has fun utilizing his flipping and jumping abilities to perform many of his own stunts. He enjoys a variety of movie genres but always comes back to where it began for him – superheroes. At the top of his list of movie favorites are “Deadpool,” “Spider-Man” and “The Avengers.” When Walker is not acting, he enjoys spending time with his family, his friends, and his dogs. He also enjoys skiing, snowboarding, skateboarding, lacrosse, and swimming.

King’s Hawaiian Slider Sunday

King’s Hawaiian Slider Sunday

Our family just loves sliders! I know if I ask anyone what they want for Sunday dinner the answer will be SLIDERS! Recently our family had a chance to test out King’s Hawaiian Slider Sunday. Every Sunday is Slider Sunday! This Sunday I went with a family fave- pork sliders, so delicious! Click here to see our 3decades3kids King’s Hawaiian prep video.

Wondering how King’s Hawaiian began?  Back in the 1950’s in Hilo, Hawaii Robert R. Taira, the Hawaiian-born son of Japanese immigrants had an idea! Robert graduated at the top of his baking class, opened his first bake shop: Robert’s Bakery. That’s where the very first soft round loaves of the Original Hawaiian Sweet bread were made. The dedication still goes on today many years later with expansions and King’s Hawaiian being available in our local stores! 

Our family created a Slider Bar for the first time ever, but it will not be the last! I cooked up some pork chops smothered in BBQ sauce and pineapples and when they were done I shredded the pork and added more BBQ sauce.  You can visit King’s Hawaiian by clicking here.

DreamWorks Animation’s THE BAD GUYS – Draw Mr. Wolf!

DreamWorks Animation’s THE BAD GUYS –

Learn To Draw Mr. Wolf From Director Pierre Perifel

In Theaters April 22

Bad cast, badder drawing! Learn with the cast to draw Mr. Wolf from director Pierre Perifel. How much awesome is this! Emily and I sat down to watch the lesson and see how we could do with our own art skills! Now it’s your turn to have some fun! Just click on the link below and test out your drawing skills!

#THEBADGUYS

Nobody has ever failed so hard at trying to be good as The Bad Guys.

In the new action comedy from DreamWorks Animation, based on the New York Times best-selling book series, a crackerjack criminal crew of animal outlaws are about to attempt their most challenging con yet—becoming model citizens.

Never have there been five friends as infamous as The Bad Guys—dashing pickpocket Mr. Wolf (Academy Award® winner Sam Rockwell, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri), seen-it-all safecracker Mr. Snake (Marc Maron, GLOW), chill master-of-disguise Mr. Shark (Craig Robinson, Hot Tub Time Machine franchise), short-fused “muscle” Mr. Piranha (Anthony Ramos, In the Heights) and sharp-tongued expert hacker Ms. Tarantula (Awkwafina, Crazy Rich Asians), aka “Webs.”

But when, after years of countless heists and being the world’s most-wanted villains, the gang is finally caught, Mr. Wolf brokers a deal (that he has no intention of keeping) to save them all from prison: The Bad Guys will go good.

Under the tutelage of their mentor Professor Marmalade (Richard Ayoade, Paddington 2), an arrogant (but adorable!) guinea pig, The Bad Guys set out to fool the world that they’ve been transformed. Along the way, though, Mr. Wolf begins to suspect that doing good for real may give him what he’s always secretly longed for: acceptance. So when a new villain threatens the city, can Mr. Wolf persuade the rest of the gang to become … The Good Guys?

The film co-stars Zazie Beetz (Joker), Lilly Singh (Bad Moms) and Emmy winner Alex Borstein (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel).

Based on the blockbuster Scholastic book series by Aaron Blabey, The Bad Guys is directed by Pierre Perifel (animator, the Kung Fu Panda films), making his feature-directing debut. The film is produced by Damon Ross (development executive Trolls, The Boss Baby, co-producer Nacho Libre) and Rebecca Huntley (associate producer, The Boss Baby). The executive producers are Aaron Blabey, Etan Cohen and Patrick Hughes.

Canvas Prints

If you know me, you know how precious making family memories is to our family. You also know ow our family is trying to decorate our walls with happy pictures of good times. So, even though it is not Halloween by a long shot, our family just loves Halloween! When I had the opportunity to partner with Printique I knew the perfect photo memory I wanted to create. I knew exactly where I wanted to place it in the house and honestly, it made my heart smile.

Boxed securely!

This photo was just a perfect moment in time. A moment where I did not think of any of our problems or stresses. It was just a moment in time I wish I could have frozen and now by getting that photo out of my phone and onto canvas I literally have frozen that happy moment to look at over and over again. The 8×10 wrapped canvas sells for $29.99 and is worth every penny. It’s a quality print and looks exactly like the photo I submitted. The canvas arrived securely in its box and really for placement on the wall. I loved it from the moment I opened the box~ and I love it even more now it’s in a special place in our house. Do you have a special memory you would like to look at over and over again? Don’t leave it in your phone, make it a part of your home. Put it somewhere that you can see it and make yourself smile every day.

Perfect for the fireplace mantle.
I loved it from the moment I opened the box!

In addition to the wrapped canvas print I ordered, there were a ton of other products available! They have everything from prints to ceramic mugs, photo books, wood prints, leather albums, and more. It is a great site for ordering gifts for family and friends, but more importantly, it’s a place for you to grab those most special pics that are sitting on your phone and get them printed so everyone can share that happiness you see when you look at those pics.

Easy to hang up on the wall.

I’m thrilled to be able to share a special code with you to save a little extra, but more importantly, I’m just happy to help find a site you can trust. Bonus; They are located in Brooklyn, so if you are from the NYC area it’s so important to support them locally. When moments matter, print them.
