If you watch the Big Game last night, you may have seen the extended look at two films I couldn’t be more excited about: GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL 2. and PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES! And if you didn’t catch it, no worries! That’s exactly what I’m sharing with you today. I’m a HUGE fan of the first GUARDIANS. So I was beyond excited to catch the TV spot last night with new footage from the film. Seriously. It’s going to be amazing. And I love love love the use of Johnny Cash in the PIRATES TV spot. My son hilariously asked if the bird at the beginning of the spot was “Becky” from FINDING DORY! LOL! I guess there may be a little resemblance… Now take a look at the spots for yourself, along with images from each look.
Anyone else watch ABC’s THE BACHELOR last night? I did! And you know know why? Luke Evans and Josh Gad hosted the broadcast as “love experts” leading up to NEW trailer for their latest film, Disney’s live-action adaptation of BEAUTY AND THE BEAST! The two star as Gaston and his sidekick LeFou in the film.
Walt Disney Studios just released the brand new character posters for their live action version of BEAUTY AND THE BEAST… and wow are they stunning! The film includes Emma Watson as Belle, Dan Stevens as the Beast and as the Prince, Luke Evans as Gaston, Kevin Kline as Maurice, Josh Gad as LeFou, Ewan McGregor as Lumière, Stanley Tucci as Cadenza, Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Plumette, Audra McDonald as Garderobe, Ian McKellen as Cogsworth and Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts. Check them out all below…
Earlier this month we share with amazing BEAUTY AND THE BEAST soundtrack news… Ariana Grande and John Legend will perform the Oscar and Grammy-winning duet “Beauty and the Beast” as the title track for Disney’s upcoming soundtrack to the live-action film! Today, I’m excited to share with you that five-time GRAMMY® winning (yes, I said FIVE!) and best-selling recording artist, Celine Dion, will perform an all-new original song, “How Does A Moment Last Forever,” for the live action film as well. As you may recall, Dion originally performed the Academy Award®, Golden Globe® and GRAMMY Award winning title track duet for the animated film back in 1991!
With winter here, in this household, we need warm, hearty dinners! Nothing is more filling and warms you right up than a good stew. One of my all time favorite French dishes is Beef Bourguignon… which is more than just your average beef stew. I always make mine in the slow cooker, and what really gets me while it simmers, is the pleasant savory aroma! And maybe the fact that I have red wine to enjoy while waiting. Check out my tutorial for Beast’s Beef Bourguignon, a recipe inspired by Disney’s upcoming live action romance classic BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, based on the French fairytale. This dish is absolutely perfect to cook for your favorite “Beast,” if he is a “meat and potatoes” kind of guy (or gal!). It’s a nice meal for “Date Night In!”
