Should We Bring Back the Calendar Competition?
In December we ended our calendar competition. That post had the biggest response in comments we’ve had in a long time, with many people saying they were sad to see it go, or wished it could continue. I too was sad that the competition was over after so many years and have had thoughts of bringing it back. It’s been gone a few months now. Would you still like to have a competition? And do you have any suggestions for getting more people to participate in making calendars?
I know there has been a lot of Emma news the last few days. Sorry, I’ll try to catch up on that tomorrow.
For now, here is our calendar for March thanks to Jia.

New Clip of ‘Belle’ from Beauty and the Beast
Disney has released a new clip of Emma Watson singing “Belle” in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. Don’t watch if you don’t want to be SPOILED. In theaters March 17!
Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” is a live-action re-telling of the studio’s animated classic which refashions the classic characters from the tale as old as time for a contemporary audience, staying true to the original music while updating the score with several new songs. “Beauty and the Beast” is the fantastic journey of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a beast in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the Beast’s hideous exterior and realize the kind heart and soul of the true Prince within. The film stars: Emma Watson as Belle; Dan Stevens as the Beast; Luke Evans as Gaston, the handsome, but shallow villager who woos Belle; Oscar® winner Kevin Kline as Maurice, Belle’s eccentric, but lovable father; Josh Gad as Lefou, Gaston’s long-suffering aide-de-camp; Golden Globe® nominee Ewan McGregor as Lumiere, the candelabra; Oscar nominee Stanley Tucci as Maestro Cadenza, the harpsichord; Oscar nominee Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, the mantel clock; and two-time Academy Award® winner Emma Thompson as the teapot, Mrs. Potts.
