Are you as excited for the arrival of Disney’s BEAUTY AND THE BEAST as I am? I may have mentioned this once or twice but Beauty and the Beast is my absolute favorite movie of all time. The message and love behind the film brings me to tears every time. It wasn’t long ago when I introduced my little one to the magic. I can’t even begin to explain what it was like seeing the excitement through her eyes. Watching her dance around, sing the songs, and ask to see the movie over and over … it was amazing.
