I got the opportunity to go to LA and check out the new Chipmunks movie, ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS: CHIPWRECKED, which is in theaters December 16th. I met some really awesome bloggers and we had roundtable discussions with some major people in the making of this movie. We met with Mike Mitchell, the director, Ross Bagdasarian and Janice Karman, the producers, and Jason Lee, the actor that plays Dave Seville. I’ll tell you all about our convos with them and some of what goes on behind the scenes of making movies likes these. First, I want to tell you about the movie. I’ll try not to spoil it for you. Check out the trailer:
ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS: CHIPWRECKED is about the Chipmunks and the Chipettes who are on this cruise ship for a vacation with Dave. They’re up to their usual mischief and get themselves stranded on a deserted island. Along the way, they encounter a new ‘friend’ and discover new aspects of their personalities that they didn’t know were hidden. The movie was so much fun. I loved the musical numbers! They did some hits like S.O.S. by Rihanna and Survivor by Beyonce. Dare I say that I like their version better than the originals? Alvin is, as usual, at the center of the mischief. He’s so lovable, though, that no-one can stay mad at him for long. He’s just a fun-loving kid, er, chipmunk who wants to enjoy life. This movie is rated G and fun for the whole family. I have a special place in my heart for Alvin and the gang because I grew up watching them on TV. No doubt parents will fall in love with them, again, and enjoy sharing this with their kids.
In the next few days, I’ll post about the roundtable discussions . For now, check out my first meeting with the Chipmunks and the Chipettes:
