#JingleAllTheWay2 set visit with @FHEInsiders Part 2 - Behind the scenes! #JingleInsiders

 JINGLE ALL THE WAY 2, the sequel to the 1996 hit comedy JINGLE ALL THE WAY is out now, just in time to watch while wrapping presents one evening with the family!

The great folks at  20th Century Fox Home Entertainment sent myself and 3 other bloggers to Vancouver, Canada to experience what it was like visiting the set, watching scenes get filmed and we got a chance to interact with the stars of the film as well.
Fill your stocking with a new holiday classic that will have the whole family laughing when Jingle All The Way 2 arrives on Blu-ray Combo, DVD and Digital HD December 2 from WWE Studios and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Comedy superstar Larry the Cable Guy and WWE Superstar Santino Marella bring laughs and holiday spirit to this second installment of the successful film franchise.

Two desperate dads compete in a no-holds-barred battle to be the best father and make this the best Christmas ever! Fun-loving, laid-back dad Larry (Larry the Cable Guy; Cars, Tooth Fairy 2) is having a bear of a time finding the perfect Christmas gift for his eight-year-old daughter, Noel. The season’s hottest toy, The Harrison Bear, is all sold out, and Noel’s new stepfather wants to keep it that way — so he can be the one to make her holiday wish come true. When Larry learns all Noel wants for Christmas is the bear, he’ll stop at nothing to make his little girl happy and get her the toy of her dreams…Co-starring WWE Superstar Santino Marella, Jingle All The Way 2 is heartwarming and hilarious fun for the whole family!
Today's post is all about behind the scenes, characters and more!

The coveted toy in this film is an adorable plush bear named Harrison! Harrison is an interactive bear with over 200 word vocabulary!  He will tell you stories, share your secrets and always be your best friend! The maker of this toy is Zammtastic Toys, which is no coincidence that Director Alex Zamm voices Harrison Bear!   We all fell in love with Harrison and it was easy to see why ever child in this movie wanted one.  Unfortunately Harrison is not a real toy...yet!  Fingers crossed!


Well since this film is a Christmas movie, snow is a must.  Well we visited the set in late spring and although it was chilly, there was no snow in sight, so of course the crew had to make their own and it was a cool process to watch!  They used a product called Instant Snow Polymer, it was placed into a trash can and they slowly added waterIt soon expanded over 40 times and is even cool to the touch! If you have had a child or watched a child in diapers, you will remember that diapers also expand. So if you don't have access to Instant Snow Polymer, tear up some Huggies diapers, empty the filling and add some water. It doesn't expand as well and can be a little costly, but would make a cool party trick!
The ice fishing scene was just a couple minutes long in the beginning of the film, but it was one of my favorite scenes.  In this scene Noel ponders the hard hitting question...why did mommy and daddy get a divorce and Larry handled it gracefully!  They still love each other, just grew apart.   Poor Larry had to eat so many Cheez Noodles, to portray the walrus with tooth decay!

Another scene we were able to watch get filmed is  when Larry and Santino Marella complete in a mechanical bull riding competition to see if they can win a Harrison the Bear for Noel.  Larry thinks who ever can stay on the bull long enough will win a Harrison, so of course he schemes to make sure he can stay on the longest.  This entire scene was actually filmed in Rooster Country Cabaret.
