The Latest Installment of the Blockbuster Movie Franchise Cruises on to Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download March 27
Everyone’s favorite chipmunks Alvin, Simon and Theodore, and their female companions, The Chipettes, have the time of their lives during a family vacation they’ll never forget in ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS: CHIPWRECKED, debuting on Blu-ray, DVD and digital download on March 27 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.  The hilarious live-action comedy will also be available as an exciting “Island Adventure” edition on Blu-ray and 2-Disc DVD, filled with tons of fun for the whole family to enjoy just in time for Easter.

The Chipmunks, Chipettes and their caretaker Dave Sevelle (Jason Lee; “My Name is Earl”) embark on a trip of a lifetime aboard the Carnival Dream cruise ship.  Seeking fun and excitement, the Chipmunks turn the luxury cruise liner into their own personal playground.  But the ultimate vacation quickly becomes a disaster when the Chipmunks, Dave and Carnival cruise pelican mascot, who turns out to be the chipmunks’ old manager, Ian Hawke (David Cross; Megamind), accidentally fall overboard and find themselves ‘Chipwrecked’ on a remote island.  Stuck in an unfamiliar territory, the six furry castaways are separated from Dave and must figure out a way to survive on their own for the first time in their lives.
Written and produced by husband and wife duo Ross Bagdasarian, Jr. and Janice Karman,
ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS: CHIPWRECKED features a star-studded voice cast with Justin Long (Dodgeball) as Alvin, Mathew Gray Gubler (“Criminal Minds”) as Simon, Jesse McCartney (Horton Hears a Who!) as Theodore, Christina Applegate (“Up All Night) as Brittany, Anna Faris (What’s Your Number?) as Jeanette, and Amy Poehler (“Parks and Recreation”) as Eleanor.


A Chipmunk Inspired Easter - The Chipwrecked Blu-rays and DVDs will be released just in time for Easter, and instead of painting eggs for the holiday, why not pay homage to our favorite furry friends and decorate acorns instead?! In this fun feature, we'll talk about some cool and
interesting ways that you can make festive decorations out of Alvin, Simon and Theodore's favorite food    

                   ACORN DOUGH NUTS

MATERIALS:                                                                                                  DIRECTIONS:
Chocolate Frosting or Peanut Butter                                                                1. Frost a third or so of plain or
Donut holes                                                                                                     glazed doughnut hole with
Crumbled Toffee                                                                                           chocolate frosting or peanut butter.
Pretzel                                                                                                                                2.  Roll the frosted top in crumbled
Toffee (look for it in the baking section of grocery stores), then add a small piece of a pretzel for the stem.


MATERIALS:                                                                                                  DIRECTIONS:
Small wooden birdhouse                                                                         1.  Paint a small wooden birdhouse
Twigs, Pebbles, flakes of bark, acorn caps,                                    white before decorating with the
Small pinecones and pinecone scales                                               natural materials you’ve collected.
Tacky glue                                                                                                        2. Use tacky glue to attach lighter
Glue dots                                                                                                           items and glue dots for the heavier
Artificial birds                                                                                                 things.
3.  As a finishing touch, add artificial birds.


MATERIALS:                                                                                                  DIRECTIONS:
Acorn caps                                                                                                        1.  For each acorn, cut two pieces of
Colored tissue paper                                                                                   colored tissue paper, one about 5
Waxed paper                                                                                                   inches square, and one about 2
Paintbrush                                                                                                        inches square.  Ball up the larger
White Glue                                                                                                       square into a roughly oval shape.       
                                                                                                                                2. Working over waxed paper, use a
paintbrush to coat the smaller square with white glue.  Wrap the smaller square around the wadded tissue, smoothing it on as you go.
3. Attach the acorn cap with a dab of glue. Holding the acorn by the cap only, carefully paint the outside of the tissue ball with glue to seal it. Let the acorn dry on the waxed paper.


MATERIALS:                                                                                                  DIRECTIONS:
Capped acorns                                                                                               1.  Gather capped acorns and

Fuzzy yarn and wool                                                                                   2. To make the hair, put one large

Scissors                                                                                                               acorn and press wisps of fuzzy yarn
String                                                                                                                  wool roving into it.  After apply a
Second drop onto the wisps, put the caps back on and hold them for one minute. 
3. Use a permanent marker to draw faces. Trim the hair, then make “chains” by tying string around the cap stem and securing it with a drop of glue.
