The cast and their roles.

Storyline (for those of you who have forgotten!):  In exchange for her father’s freedom, a young woman agrees to live with a monstrous beast in his castle, and she may hold the key to his salvation.

This is rumored to be a much more faithful remake of the original 1991 animated movie, with all the movie’s musical numbers included. Plus, it will finally introduce some (or all) of the songs from the 1994 Broadway musical, like “Home”, “If I Can’t Love Her”, and “A Change in Me”.

Movie Release Date:  March 17, 2017!

Two Girls and a Mouse Tale

   by Elly Collins & Caroline Collins

Ever wonder what it’s like to work for Disney???

We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program (Fall 2013/Spring 2014) and have written a book about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.

We’ve included advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship, and how not self-term before your program ends. Our book is filled with lots of behind-the-scene stories of the magic of Disney.

Available now at in paperback and Kindle formats. Published by Theme Park Press.
