Countdown to 'Beauty and the Beast' #1

With Beauty and the Beast less than a year away from release, the blog will be celebrating each week leading up to the film's release. Although each day of the week will have a designated type of post, not all will be included on a weekly basis. Below you will find a list and description of the blog's weekly countdown posts.

Countdown to Beauty and the Beast:
Magical Mondays- Find out where you can find Beauty and the Beast at the Walt Disney World Resort
Trivia Tuesdays- Beauty and the Beast trivia, from animation to the stage and back to the big screen
Watchful Wednesdays- Movie recommendations featuring the cast and crew of Beauty and the Beast
Throwback Thursdays- Take a look back at the history of Beauty and the Beast and the best news from the past year

Magical Monday- The Grand Floridian's Annual Easter Egg Display
Over the past five years, the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa has been host to the Easter egg display and Beauty and the Beast has once again been featured among the chocolate egg collection. This year's collection, which also includes eggs for Mulan, The Fox and the Hound, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and more, will be on display until April 4th.

Check out Inside the Magic's full walk-through of the Easter Egg display.

Trivia Tuesday- Beauty and the Beast Makes Oscar History

Watchful Wednesday- Atonement- Jacqueline Durran
Atonement (2007) features the Academy Award nominated costume design of Jacqueline Durran. Durran has been nominated for an Oscar a total of four times (Pride and Prejudice, Atonement, Anna Karenina, and Mr. Turner) and took home the award in 2013 for her work on Joe Wright's Anna Karenia. Her screen credits also include Nanny McPhee Returns, Young Adam, and Pan. 

Fledgling writer Briony Tallis, as a thirteen-year-old, irrevocably changes the course of several lives when she accuses her older sister's lover of a crime he did not commit. 

Throwback Thursday- Behind the scenes of Beauty and the Beast (1991)
For those of us who grew up in the 90's, there was nothing better than popping in a Disney VHS on a Saturday afternoon. The 1991 video release of The Jungle Book included a short behind the scenes video of the then upcoming release of Beauty and the Beast. The featurette includes appearances from animator Glen Keane (Beast), as well as producer Don Hahn and Angela Lansbury (Mrs. Potts).
