I should know better than to hype up an event with my 2 1/2 year old days before it’s to occur. My son never forgets things like this (but somehow manages to “forget” that it’s not ok to throw food on the floor…or hit his baby sister…sigh!) and days leading up to the event I heard a lot of “I want to see the chipmunks!” But I digressed. Last week, we headed over to Fox Studios for a media event celebrating the release of Alvin & The Chipmunks: The Squeakquel.
Now, I haven’t actually seen the first movie, but from some of the clips shown at the event, it looks like a fun movie for adults and kids alike. Here is a bit more info on the release, scheduled for March 30:
Pop sensations Alvin, Simon and Theodore end up in the care of Dave Seville’s twenty-something nephew Toby. The boys must put aside music super stardom to return to school, and are tasked with saving the school’s music program by winning the $25,000 prize in a battle of the bands. But the Chipmunks unexpectedly meet their match in three singing chipmunks known as The Chipettes -– Brittany, Eleanor and Jeanette. Romantic and musical sparks are ignited when the Chipmunks and Chipettes square off.
While we were at Fox Studios, my son met the chipmunks,
and danced to their single, “Single Ladies”
I learned that their is a Spanish language version of this movie and that these three chipmunks have actually “munk’d” the nation for over 50 years. I also learned that they’re named after the executives of their original record label and that their high-pitched voices were originally created by speeding up the play back.
When we got home, my son thought we were going to watch the movie (aw…). Fortunately, we’re going to get a review copy!
