FALL - 2016
What a whirlwind the last couple of months have been! As you all know by now - the 25th Anniversary release of Beauty and the Beast has now happened - and I have been hopping all over doing special events, press, D23 screenings and more! It has been crazy - but I am happy to say it was also wonderful to revisit this film on the big screen again - the highlight was the special event at Lincoln Center.
Way back in 1991 the folks at Disney took a huge chance and screened an unfinished version of the film for the New York Film Festival at Alice Tully Hall in Lincoln Center - and it was the beginning of Beauty and the Beast's incredible journey. So it was sooooo cool to return to the place where it all started and be able to watch the film again with so many friends and family - only to have the evening topped off with Angela singing the title song live with Alan Menken playing piano for her. AMAZING!!!!!!!
It was so great to spend time with fans again and hear their wonderful stories about how this film had impacted their lives - and what is really special is how so many are now passing this film on to their children - and is some cases grandchildren ! - that made me realize how lucky I am to have been a part of this incredible film. And we have the next version coming along in the spring - I for one can't wait to see the live action!
Thanks to all my friends at the gallery at Town Square - Magical Memories Galleries - some new exciting stuff happening there as well but to early to talk about it yet - but soon!
Guess that’s it for now – hope to see you guys soon!
