Mark Your Calendars for March 8th

Disney’s fantastical adventure “Oz The Great and Powerful,” directed by Sam Raimi, imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum’s beloved wizard character. When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he’s hit the jackpot—fame and fortune are his for the taking—that is until he meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone’s been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity—and even a bit of wizardry—Oscar transforms himself not only into the great and powerful wizard but into a better man as well.

What’s better in 3D? Disney’s Beauty and the Beast in a Theatre Near You

Beauty Beast 3D - Limited time theatre release

Beauty Beast 3D - Limited time theatre release

How many times have you seen this movie? I bet you even own it? Me too. Nothing however, stops us from watching it time after time (good thing DVDs can’t get dog-eared). So why should you take your family to the theatre to see this again… because this time, it’s in 3D.

Think of the fun the kids will have with the 3D glasses and seeing the action of the characters dancing and interacting. Imagine their little hands reaching out to touch them. Engaging them… Who knows, maybe it will keep them occupied so they forget about needing to have snacks or run to the bathroom?

What’s amazing to me about this is that   “Beauty and the Beast” was the first hand-drawn film to be dimensionalized into 3D… and that’s no easy feat AND Walt Disney Studios didn’t initially have plans to release “Beauty and the Beast” or “The Lion King” theatrically in 3D they were just going to offer it for home sales. So why now? They tested “The Lion King” in 3D as there was a gap in scheduling releases and it made $100 million – which confirmed that audiences wanted to see the 3D version.

Question – do you remember when it first was released?  Walt Disney Pictures’ 30th full-length animated feature, ”Beauty and the Beast,” premiered in 1991. That’s 20 years ago, and it will be a first-time experience for children going to see it in a theatre setting which makes the experience more fun.

Bonus playing with “Beauty and the Beast” – is the “Tangled Ever After” Short: “The Pursuit”

More fun facts

“Beauty and the Beast” was the fifth classic fairy tale to be adapted as a Disney animated feature. The tradition began in 1937 with “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” which was based on the famous story by the Brothers Grimm. In the 1950s, Walt Disney and his animators successfully tackled two classic folk tales by French author Charles Perrault––”Cinderella” (1950) and “Sleeping Beauty” (1959). Another famous purveyor of fairy tales, Hans Christian Andersen, was the source of ”The Little Mermaid,” Disney’s 1989 release, which went on to become the Studio’s most successful animated feature up until that time.

  • “Beauty and the Beast” was nominated for six Academy Awards® and won Oscars® for Best Song, by the renowned Alan Menken and Howard Ashman, and Best Original Score (Menken).
  • Céline Dion won a GRAMMY® Award (with Peabo Bryson) for her chart-topping recording of the title song.
  • “Beauty and the Beast” was the 1st animated feature to bring in more than $100 million
  • Three years after the film’s debut, “Beauty and the Beast” hit Broadway opening at the Palace Theatre in New York and ran for 5,464 performances between 1994 and 2007, becoming the eighth-longest running production – it has even played in 13 countries and 115 cities and continues to enchant audiences worldwide

Walt Disney Animation Studios’ magical classic “Beauty and the Beast” returns to the big screen in Disney Digital 3D™, introducing a whole new generation to the Disney classic with stunning new 3D imagery. 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.

The Muppets for Thanksgiving instead of Shopping!

Thanksgiving is a time for families and fun, eating and watching football and this year, The Muppets!

Personally speaking, I’m not interested in getting up early or staying up late to shop for bargains – but there are so many who do that. Of course, if you know me, you know that I’m an online shopper so it’s Cyber Monday for me.

If you’re a parent, it’s hard to find good movies that you can take your kids to and as a family enjoy together. Well, this year, Disney has done it, they’ve brought together the cast of characters that we love “The Muppets” and put together some fun ways to fill the time before the movie opens on Thanksgiving.

Dreams Do Come True in Walt Disney Movies, You’ll See in “The Odd Life of Timothy Green”

Growing up the magic of the movies was something we all looked forward to from those cliff-hangars and twists, the talking dogs, the magical cats, and they all drew us in and looking forward to watching them on the silver screen.

walt disney studios motion pictures

Once again, Walt Disney Studios does not disappoint with this new tale about a couple who long for a family but cannot have one, so they dream about what it would be like, what having a son would be like. Jennifer Garner is wonderful in this scene with her movie husband as they “live” the wishes they write down for their future in “The Odd Life of Timothy Green.” In this clip below, Academy Award®–nominated director/writer Peter Hedges (“Dan in Real Life,” What’s Eating Gilbert Grape?”) delivers the magic we’re talking about with this story written by Ahmet Zappa.

Watch this clip to get a feel for their dreams and what comes from them.

Watch for the movie “the Odd Life of Timothy Green” coming next summer and meet young Timothy (CJ Adams) when he shows up on the Green’s doorstep one stormy night, and prove to Cindy and Jim Green that sometimes the unexpected can bring some of life’s greatest gifts.
