SEA LIFETM Carlsbad Aquarium
Celebrates World Oceans Day With a 'Seussian' Celebration!
Aquarium raises awareness for conserving and
protecting our oceans in a fun and playful way

CARLSBAD, Calif. (June 4, 2011) – Today, SEA LIFETM Carlsbad Aquarium at the LEGOLAND®
California Resort celebrated World Oceans Day with a Dr. Seuss themed
party from 10 a.m.- 5 p.m. The goal of the World Oceans Day party at SEA
was to raise awareness for conserving and protecting our oceans in a fun
and playful way.

"World Oceans Day was created to raise awareness
for conserving and protecting our seas" said Megan Malaska, Education
Specialist of SEA LIFE Carlsbad Aquarium. "SEA LIFE Carlsbad
Aquarium participated in this international celebration with fun,
kid-friendly activities to remind guests about the importance of our

Young guests visiting SEA LIFE during the Dr. Seuss
themed World Oceans Day celebration took part in fun, educational,
activities while interacting with SEA LIFE educators and learning more
about our oceans and the creatures that live in them. The highlight of
day's activities was two special Daily Dive shows featuring an
underwater reading of the Dr. Seuss classics One Fish Two Fish Red Fish
Blue Fish
and Wish for a Fish. Sporting 'Seussian attire', an exploration diver
used an underwater communications system which allowed guests to
speak to the diver through the viewing window while the diver read aloud
to them from inside the Aquarium.

Aquarium visitors also
decorated a
Seussian style name tag; designed an origami fortune teller game with
conservation tips and an ocean fortune; made a unique dimensional fish
and learned fun facts about ocean conservation.

World Oceans Day
provides an annual opportunity to celebrate our world's oceans and our
personal connection to the sea. The United Nations declared June 8 as
the official World Oceans Day in 2009 but the event has been celebrated
unofficially since it was proposed at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro
in 1992.

Since 1960, Dr. Seuss' One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue
Fish has been introducing young readers to fantastically funny creatures
like the seven-humped Wump, the winking Yink, the boxing Gox, and more
than a
few fanciful fish. A simple yet utterly silly book, it creates a fun
reading experience combining exuberant illustrations and text, while
providing a
colorful parallel to the diversity of our world oceans.

More than a
standard aquarium, SEA LIFE provides an educational and interactive
unlike any other. The SEA LIFE experience incorporates LEGO® models into
a child's voyage to the depths of the ocean, presenting the wonders
of the underwater world to them in a way specially designed for their
understanding. Featuring play zones, fun facts and quiz trails, SEA LIFE
designed to be a child's guide to the life of the sea.
Kids 3-12 $13, Seniors 60+ $17; Adults $20. Visit or call             (760) 918-5346      .

Star Wars Spoof: Space Robots in Outer Space Ep X: Battle for the Halcyon: The Last Starcruiser



Sure, Star Wars is cool and all. But let’s not forget about that other multi-part sci-fi cinematic spectacular, “Space Robots in Outer Space.” In fact, Hank Lonely (Hollywood’s ultimate hyphenate — actor / producer / director / writer / guy who makes sure the Porto Potties are kept squeaky-clean) just announced that there’ll soon be a 10th installment of this … Well, not exactly beloved. How about we say “admired from afar” instead? … series coming to a theater near you. In fact, here’s the highly anticipated teaser trailer for that project. Which is supposed to be titled “Space Robots in Outer Space X — Battle for the Halycon: The Last Starcruiser.”

Okay. Now the real story … In honor of Star Wars Day (i.e., May 4th. As in “May the Fourth Be With You”), Len Testa and I are sharing something that we produced with the help of all the nice folks who joined us last month aboard the Halycon.

We turned the Galactic Starcruiser as well as Black Spire Outpost into the backdrop for an affectionate send-up of all things Stars Wars. We hope that you (more importantly, the legal team at Lucasfilm) take this faux trailer in the spirit with which it was intended. Special thanks to Aaron Adams for so skillfully stitching all of this footage together. Also thanks to the team at Storybook Destinations, Touring Plans and the talented cast & crew aboard the “Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser” for making this “Disney Dish” fan event so memorable.

When she finds herself surrounded by Disney princesses, she’s surprised to learn that she actually has a lot in common with them. The scene, highlighted in a new trailer for the film (below), features several of the original princess voices, including Auli’i Cravalho (“Moana”), Kristen Bell (Anna in “Frozen”), Idina Menzel (Elsa in “Frozen”), Kelly MacDonald (Merida in “Brave”), Mandy Moore (Rapunzel in “Tangled”), Anika Noni Rose (Tiana in “The Princess and the Frog”), Ming-Na Wen (“Mulan”), Irene Bedard (“Pocahontas”), Linda Larkin (Jasmine in “Aladdin”), Paige O’Hara (Belle in “Beauty and the Beast”) and Jodi Benson (Ariel in “The Little Mermaid”).
