Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Walt Disney Pictures will be releasing a new Romeo and Juliet movie. It is called Gnomeo and Juliet in 3D and I can’t wait to see it because garden gnomes just happen to hold a special place in my heart.
Among my other volunteer jobs, I serve as the Youth Leader of the High School Youth Group at my church. One of the events I plan each year is a “Gnome Kidnapping” and my teens and I all love it. Each Fall, we “kidnap” garden gnomes from neighborhood homes (of church members – pre-arranged, of course) and we take the gnomes on fun adventures. The slogan for the night is “No Gnome Left At Home” and is based on the premise that all Summer long homeowners have traveled on vacations and have completely ignored their lawn friends, not to mention their need for a little excitement as well. Each team takes the gnome on different adventures and they document them on film and video to earn points. Different activities earn different amounts of points and the team with the most points after they return their gnome to his humble dwellings wins.
We all have so much fun with our gnomes, whom we name for our night out on the town. You can bet that the first Wednesday night after Gnomeo and Juliet is released, my youth group and I will be found in the theater enjoying this fun-loving film.
In Gnomeo and Juliet, our star-crossed lovers are said to be getting a comical, off-the-wall makeover. The movie will feature the voices of James McAvoy and Emily Blunt as Gnomeo and Juliet who, just as their quasi namesakes, will have many obstacles to overcome when they get caught up in a feud between neighbors. The trailer looks hilarious but, with all the antics going on, will they possibly find a happy ending? One can only guess.
I know some adults and teenagers who will soon find out. I am really looking forward to this sure-to-be-fun night.
