Ali Articles & Interviews, Family & Relationships Comments Off on Ginnifer Goodwin Hopes Her Sons Embrace Her Love of All Things Disney

People.com shares how Ginny has shared that she hopes to instill in Oliver her love of Disney.

Ginnifer Goodwin loves getting lost in a good fairy tale and including her family in the fun.

The actress’ occupation as a Disney princess on TV’s Once Upon a Time has added a few storybook-like elements to her life: the introduction to her husband and costar Josh Dallas and enhanced the actress’ overall appreciation for the Mouse House (Once Upon a Time is produced by ABC, a Disney company), which she says has also rubbed off on her 21-month-old son Oliver.

“We’ve gone to [Disneyland] probably a bit more than is healthy,” Goodwin, 37, reveals in the spring issue of Disney twenty-three.

“Oliver loves, loves, loves it. I have a video of him having a dance jam with Pluto and Donald. He cries when we take him away from the characters instead of what most toddlers do, which is cry when the characters come to them.”

Goodwin, who is pregnant with the couple’s second son, says motherhood has brought out a newfound appreciation for the lessons and cautionary tales within most Disney stories.

“I have a couple deep, dark fears about childrearing, like they won’t love Disneyland because I’ll oversaturate them,” she says.

“I also fear that they will say things to me like, ‘Mom, I don’t know why you think you sound like that bunny. You’re not Judy.’ ” (Goodwin lends her voice as Judy in the upcoming animated film Zootopia.)

The spring issue of Disney twenty-three is published by the official Disney fan club D23 and will be available to D23 Gold Members.

Ali Zootopia Comments Off on Film Review: Disney’s ‘Zootopia’

Variety gives us our first review of Zootopia.

Disney offers a decades-later correction to ‘Song of the South,’ in which rabbits and foxes have a chance to live together in relative harmony.

From the company that brought you the utopian simplicity of “It’s a Small World” comes a place where mammals of all shapes, sizes and dietary preferences not only live in harmony, but also are encouraged to be whatever they want — a revisionist animal kingdom in which lions and lambs lay down the mayoral law together, and a cuddly-wuddly bunny can grow up to become the city’s top cop. Welcome to “Zootopia,” where differences of race and species serve no obstacle to either acceptance or achievement. It is, in short, a city that only the Mouse House could imagine, and one that lends itself surprisingly well to a classic L.A.-style detective story, a la “The Big Lebowski” or “Inherent Vice,” yielding an adult-friendly whodunit with a chipper “you can do it!” message for the cubs.

Opening in several European countries weeks ahead of its March 4 domestic release, “Zootopia” is full of motormouthed characters and American culture in-jokes — no surprise, considering it was directed by Byron Howard, whose girl-power “Tangled” kicked off the recent Disney revival, and “The Simpsons” vet Rich Moore, who co-helmed “Wreck-It Ralph.” But that should pose little obstacle to its worldwide appeal, boosted by some of the most huggable Disney characters since “Lilo & Stitch.”

While her 225 bunny brothers and sisters are content to stay on the farm, aspirational rabbit Judy Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin) shows an early aptitude for conflict management, stepping in when a schoolyard bully hassles her classmates. Not so surprisingly, the offender happens to be a fox, though Judy doesn’t give in to such species typing, insisting that jerks come in all shapes and sizes. So, too, do heroes, and despite the limitations of her tiny scale, Judy enlists in the Zootopia police academy, struggling at first before outwitting her larger rivals.

Graduating at the top of her class, Judy packs her bags for a job in the big city — which is like a cross between one of those shiny 21st-century Dubai complexes featuring indoor skiing and surfing, and a new Disney theme-park adjunct, complete with climate-specific subdivisions like Tundratown and Sahara Square. “There’s far too much to take in here,” as the opening scene of “The Lion King” promises (a movie whose stunning African savannah was downright simplistic compared with the world “Zootopia” has to establish), and Howard and Moore struggle to make their introduction anywhere near as impressive, despite leaning heavily on an unremarkable “I want” song called “Try Everything,” performed by Gazelle (Shakira), the veld’s sveltest pop idol (well-meaning sample lyric: “I wanna try even though I could fail”).

Doing justice to an elaborate new environment poses a familiar problem, slightly improved from last year’s “Tomorrowland,” in the sense that Judy (who probably should have grown up in town, like everyone else in Zootopia) takes a long train ride into the city, ogling the various districts as she passes. It’s a sequence worth studying a dozen times down the road just to catch all the tiny details, from the hippo-drying stations to the plastic hamster tubes, although it’s an awkward way to acquaint ourselves with the city.

In theory, Zootopia’s residents have evolved past distinctions of predator and prey, which might explain the small matter of cartoon biology: Whether tiny mice or hulking rhinoceroses, all animals have front-facing eyes, upright postures and opposable thumbs — a throwback to the delightful character design featured in Disney’s “Robin Hood” (1973), which reimagined a human world populated entirely by animals, integrating characteristics of each species into the ways different creatures move.

In progressive-minded Zootopia, a moose can co-anchor the evening news with a snow leopard without it turning into an episode of “When Animals Attack!” That said, even the most basic social interactions remain tense, as the city’s caste system matches animals to the roles that suit them best (the DMV is all-too-accurately staffed by slow-moving sloths, for example), while still adhering closely to the hierarchy of the food chain (with a few amusing exceptions, including a cameo by “Pinky and the Brain” actor Maurice LaMarche as a Don Corleone-like arctic shrew).

Ali Articles & Interviews, Family & Relationships Comments Off on Josh Dallas and Ginnifer Goodwin Expecting Second Child

Ginny & Josh have shared with People.com that they are having another baby! Congratulation to Mr. & Mrs. Dallas on this exciting news!

Snow White and Prince Charming are expanding their family!

Josh Dallas and Ginnifer Goodwin are expecting their second child, their rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

The Once Upon a Time stars are already parents to son Oliver Finlay, 17 months.

Dallas, 33, who married Goodwin, 37, in April 2014, spoke to PEOPLE earlier this year about his wife’s parenting expertise.

“It’s extraordinary because she is, literally, the greatest mother that I know,” he said. “It’s extraordinary to have your partner, who you’ve known all this time, blossom into this woman … who is so nurturing, so caring and just so cool. She’s so cool and she’s a cool mom. It’s great.”

Sounds like this soon-to-be family of four is living happily ever after.
