Beauty And The Beast Returns To The Big Screen Bigger And Better Than Ever

“Beauty and the Beast” returns to the big screen in Disney Digital 3D™ on January 13th, 2012, as a refreshed classic ready to win over a whole new generation of fans.

The film captures the fantastic journey of Belle (voice of Paige O’Hara), a bright and beautiful young woman who’s taken prisoner by a hideous beast (voice of Robby Benson) in his castle. Despite her precarious situation, Belle befriends the castle’s enchanted staff – a teapot, a candelabra and a mantel clock, among others – and ultimately learns to see beneath the Beast’s exterior to discover the heart and soul of a prince.

Featuring unforgettable music by Howard Ashman and Alan Menken, and an enormously talented vocal ensemble, “Beauty and the Beast” was the first animated feature to receive a Best Picture nomination from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

While I was extremely apprehensive about how one of my most favorite movies would look updated with 3D, but I have to say I almost like it better!!! For me the 3D effects were amazing, because they added so much depth and visual intensity that you almost forgot that you had seen it before. This is what seeing the multiplane camera in action for the first time must have felt like! It was amazing! Also, I had almost forgotten how dark and scary Beast was as the beginning of the movie.

I am already looking forward to seeing it again this weekend!!!!

Before the movie, there was a Tangled short “Tangled Ever After” which was hilarious!!!! I am absolutely loving these shorts, because they are such a fun added bonus! The story stays true to the feel and humor of the original move, and leaves you wanting more!

Again, the trailers for The Secret World of Arrietty and Brave trailers have me super stoked to see them!!!

I absolutely recommend giving this refreshed and updated classic a chance to win you over in 3D!!!!

The Muppets – Possibly The Bestest Muppets Movie Yet

So when I was asked to attend a Media Preview of The Muppets my heart soared and sunk at the same time.

I grew up on the Muppets and love them dearly like they are family members, and while I was stoked from the first second I heard about this movie I was also a little nervous about how it would turn out.

As I sat down in my seat this morning, I took a deep breath and hoped for the best…

First up were trailers for The Secret World of Arrarity and Brave, both of which I am now absolutely DYING to see!!! They both look like great stories that are breathtaking on the big screen.

Then it was time for the Toy Story Short ‘Small Fry’. This short lives up to it’s predecessor ‘Hawaiian Vacation’! It was super funny, just the right length, and absolutely set the mood for the movie!!!

The Muppets is a heart warming story where three devoted fans help the Muppets reunite to save their old theatre.

The story itself is full of nods to the history of the Muppet franchise while staying current enough to be funny to newbies. And in true Muppet fashion the jokes read on the adult and child level, which led to TONS of laughter from all of us.

I am not going to lie, I cried during The Muppets. Now this may sound silly, but there were parts that struck such a cord of nostalgia for the past and hope for the future that I couldn’t help myself.

I absolutely cannot recommend this movie highly enough…I seriously want to see this movie again…NOW!!!!
