Trivia Tuesday- "Get your own movie!"
Prior to the June 2002 release of Lilo and Stitch, Disney released a series of teaser trailers with Stitch causing trouble in a number of classic animated features, including Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, and The Lion King. In the Beauty and the Beast trailer, Stitch causes a ruckus as the chandelier crashes to the ground and interrupts the pair's romantic night.
Belle and Beast also appear on the Lilo & Stitch poster, alongside Aladdin, Dopey, Tinker Bell, and more.
Throwback Thursday- He can sing! He can dance!
One year ago this week, Ewan McGregor (Lumiere) attended the Edinburgh International Film Festival for an "In Person" event to discuss his varied career, from Trainspotting to Moulin Rouge! and now Beauty and the Beast. During the discussion, McGregor gave a bit of an off-kilter performance of "Be Our Guest" for the crowd and spoke with great enthusiasm about working with Emma Thompson, Stanley Tucci, and Ian McKellen on the film, a sentiment he has shared in other interviews over the past several months.
McGregor was back in the studio a few months ago to work on "Be Our Guest" with director Bill Condon.
