Beauty and the Beast: A Comparative Study

I think we can all agree on one thing: 1991’s Beauty and the Beast is the best Disney film. Is it my favorite? No—that award goes to The Great Mouse Detective—however, it’s close. We’re given a strong female protagonist, a story of unrequited love, an arguably perfect villain, snappy song and dance numbers, and gorgeous animation. Put it all together and you have the first animated film nominated for the Best Picture Academy Award. The movie is almost perfect, and what few... Read More

Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! Disney’s New Christmas Entertainment at Hollywood Studios

Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park’s been undergoing a lot of massive changes of late, many of which have left guests feeling kind of in limbo.  Is the park worth it? Yes. Is there still anything to do? Plenty! One of the more heartbreaking losses in this transformation was the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights, and you can count me amongst the heartbroken Disney fans. Last December I went there specifically just to see it one last time. It wasn’t hard not to... Read More

The Best of Disney’s Animal Kingdom After Dark!

For the longest time, Disney’s Animal Kingdom in Orlando was considered by many to be a half-day park.  That notion’s very disappointing to me because it makes the theme park sound like a “not worth it” whole-day investment, and that couldn’t be farther from the truth! Why, you might ask? Well, they’ve finally done something I’ve been looking forward to for a long time: Extended park hours! The new later hours came earlier this past Memorial Day... Read More

From the very first moment I heard that iconic opening credits’ music from the animated classic in the teaser trailer, I was sold. The re-imagined and updated film stars Emma Watson (Harry Potter, Perks of Being a Wallflower) as Belle and Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey) as the Beast.  As if I couldn’t gush any more about the...
