The Redbox Summer Family Fun campaign continues! Through August 26, families that rent kid-friendly DVDs at Redbox locations and input their email address are automatically entered to win prizes, including one grand prize seven-day vacation for four to the Kennedy Space Center.
Sounds like the perfect way for a grandma to cap off summer break with a few of her grandkiddos!
As part of the fun, Phase 4 Films has three new releases coming out in August that are sure to entertain grandkids of various ages. When you and yours need a break from the summer sun—and who doesn't this summer!—consider renting one of the following Phase 4 offerings from Redbox:
My Friend Bernard
Based on the popular animated series, this 70-minute film focuses on Sam, a shy boy who's afraid of everything. With a magic pendant and a polar bear named Bernard as his sidekick, Sam embarks on a fantastical adventure that helps him learn how to overcome his fears with his sense of wonder and humor in place. Rated PG.
This 78-minute film features the voice of Jane Lynch and is nominated for the Robert Award for Best Children/Family Film of 2012. Earthworms may be among the lowest on the food chain, but worms Gloria and Barry prove they definitely know how to boogie. Barry's determined to make the world's greatest disco band, and Gloria joins right in to become a singing sensation. Having no arms and no rhythm, the duo and their friend naturally encounter a few bumps and challenges along the way. Rated PG.
I Heart Shakey
When single-father J.T. and his precocious daughter, Chandler, move from a small town to high-rise apartment in Chicago, they're forced to find a new home for their beloved pooch, Shakey. Steve Guttenberg adds hilarity and high jinks as the doggie boarder with a secret. He and other silly characters (Beverly DeAngelo being one) help drive home lessons about loyalty and the importance of keeping family together in this 102-minute movie. Rated PG.
These three Phase 4 Films—available at Redbox locations, Target, Walmart and Amazon.com—are just a few of the family-friendly DVDs available for rental in August as part of Redbox Summer Family Fun. In addition, Phase 4 is running a contest on their Pinterest page in which entrants can win eight films from the Kaboom! family entertainment label. Visit the Kaboom!
