Be Our Guest – Interviews with Emma Watson, Josh Gad, Alan Menken and Bill Condon about BEAUTY AND THE BEAST from the March 5th Los Angeles Press Junket!
Emma Watson is delightful as she eloquently speaks on the character of Belle. Luke Evans (Gaston) and Josh Gad (LeFou) absolutely steal the show with their wit and song. Then Director Bill Condon and Composer Alan Menken teach us about storytelling and song-writing as they describe how they adapted this 300-year old story for live-action.

Skywalking Through Neverland #160: Beauty and the Beast Press Event
There are four new songs in BEAUTY AND THE BEAST – we go through each to prime you for the movie. Le Fou as played by Josh Gad is the first overtly gay character in a Disney film, tune in to hear our thoughts on that. Emma Watson absolutely brings us to tears. Tune in to hear it all, including our thoughts on this film. If you’d rather read some of this, head over to my post on Adventures By Daddy.
On March 8th, we met Michael Giacchino!!!! Ben Acker and Ben Blacker put on a Book Launch “Join The Resistance” Variety Show at the Largo Theater in Los Angeles to celebrate the launch of the new middle grade Star Wars book: “Star Wars: Join The Resistance”. Skywalkers Brian Sims and James Floyd joined us and we had an amazing time. The Variety Show had various acts headlined by various celebrities, including Weird Al Yankovic, Doug Benson (Doug Loves Movies), Matt Gourley (Superego; I Was There Too), Ahmed Best (Jar Jar Binks), Busy Philipps (Freaks & Geeks), Rogue One composer Michael Giacchino. Michael Giacchino may also have given Sarah a birthday message, thanks to Richard Woloski being a fantastic husband!!
