Life Lessons from the BoxCar Children
My children grew up learning to read with the BoxCar Children. We have read the series at least a dozen times as the little ones came along. There are so many life lessons from the BoxCar Children that I still apply today. I am so excited that one of the Most-Read and Beloved Children’s Book Series will be coming to Big Screens Nationwide on May 8, 2018!
“Boxcar Children – Surprise Island”, based on the second book from the series by Gertrude Chandler, will premiere in more than 650 U.S. cinemas for a one-day-only event on Tuesday, May 8 at 4:00 p.m. local time.
This full-length feature includes a stellar voice cast lineup including Martin Sheen, J.K. Simmons, Griffin Gluck, Joey King and Dane DeHaan.
In addition to the feature content, audiences will be treated to an exclusive introduction from actor Griffin Gluck, and following the feature, producer/director Dan Chuba will explain the process of adapting the book to film and the animation methods.
