Recently, my husband Brody and I were given the full red carpet treatment at Disney•Pixar's Incredibles 2 premiere, thanks to our friends at Kleenex® Brand. I was absolutely floored when this invitation was extended to me. Kleenex® Facial Tissue has always been a staple in our home, so I didn't even think twice at the opportunity to partner with them and share this wonderful experience with you.
I truly felt like a princess the entire night! They sent a car to pick us up at our home and take us to the event. It was held at the stunning El Capitan Theatre, with the red carpet laid out along on Hollywood Boulevard. We were greeted by the cutest entrance, featuring all our favorite characters from the movie. Beyond the carpet, there were cute photo ops (we loved the big balloon Elastigirl!), airbrushed face painting – and food!
I didn't even realize until later (while we were watching the movie), but all the food was Incredibles-themed! It was the cutest and just like Disney not to miss a detail. Our favorites were the veggie egg rolls, cookies shaped like masks and Jack-Jack’s Num Nums chocolate chip cookies. We have never had such amazing cookies. We had to use our super strength to suppress the urge for seconds. They all had Pixar Pier stickers on them, so we can only hope they’re sold in California Adventure at Pixar Pier, which is open now!
After enjoying a bite to eat, we headed over to the character meet-and-greet. We met Elastigirl, Mr. Incredible, Frozone and finally the fashion icon herself–Edna Mode! As you can see, Mr. Incredible and my own superhero of a hubby had a little moment with their special handshake. I just love character interactions so much, they are always so much fun!
Of course we came prepared for photos and brought our own masks thanks to Kleenex® Brand. Every Kleenex® Brand Trusted Care® Tissue box featuring Disney•Pixar's Incredibles 2 has a tear-off hero mask so you can unmask your incredible just like your favorite characters. This is truly a product every Disney fan will enjoy– adults and kids alike! They’re beginning to hit shelves this week, but if you can’t wait, stock up here.
After the party, it was time to head into the theatre for the movie! We have loved this family for years and were SO excited to finally see their next chapter unfold. I must say, we were completely blown away! It might have been even better than the first, which we didn't think was possible. It was hilarious, heartwarming and really empowering, and had a beautiful message–love others for what makes them special. Jack-Jack also has such an amazing role that will have you rolling-on-the-floor laughing. I believe it’s everything we were all hoping for from this sequel, and so much more! Get your tickets now because you really don't want to miss this incredible movie! We have already purchased tickets to see it again and can't wait to experience the fun all over again!
