Darrin Butters, a veteran Disney animator, spent a day meeting with bloggers and journalists in Phoenix, Ariz., on Friday, Nov. 4, to promote Moana, the new Disney animated movie set to be released this week in time for the Thanksgiving holiday.

Butters, who was born in Nebraska, was bitten by the performance bug at a young age, starting with puppet shows, magic shows and was active in theater as a kid.

Star vs. Forces of Evil

It’s going to get a little weird and wild! Star vs. the Forces of Evil is coming back to Disney XD July 11! Created by Daron Nefcy, the show aired on Disney XD on March 30, 2015. Nefcy created Star Butterfly, the main female of the show, to be like Sailor Moon, a magical girl. She also created Marco Diaz, the main male, to be obsessed with karate and Dragon Ball Z. The two live in the same household. Star is a foreign exchange student, and she and Marco were enemies at first, but now are best friends. Marco’s parents took in Star when she came to Earth from Mewni.

Marvel's Captain America Civil War

Captain America: Civil War was a great movie. I loved it—it was awesome.

I liked that lots of Marvel heroes joined in and helped the teams. I really didn’t know why they were fighting. There was no scary stuff in it, to me. I loved it. I don’t think any part of it was boring.
It is rated PG-13 because of some violence, language and rude humor.
