We are still months away until Walt Disney Animation whisks audiences back to the mythical land of Arendelle for the further adventures of Anna and Elsa in FROZEN II. How can you and your little ones pass the time?
AMC is here to help. We are bringing back our Dream Big, Princess program, which returns four beloved Disney princess feature films to the big screen for audiences to enjoy. Some of these haven’t been shown on the big screen in ages, meaning it might be a first-time viewing for young Disney fans. And that’s how memories are made!
The schedule for the 2019 Dream Big, Princess program will be as follows.
The Little Mermaid
Soon to be made into a live-action feature starring Halle Bailey, THE LITTLE MERMAID follows a restless mermaid who dreams of one day living on the surface. To get there, Ariel trades her greatest gift — her beautiful singing voice — for a pair of legs. Come for the music, including brilliant songs like “Under the Sea,” which won a Best Original Song Oscar® in 1989.
Beauty and the Beast
A tale as old as time … and one that always warrants a big-screen viewing. The 1991 animated version translates the classic romance for a contemporary audience, riding on the coattails of some incredible songs, such as “Be Our Guest” as well as the title track.
Rapunzel may have let down her hair, but TANGLED did not let down animation audiences looking for a new winner from Walt Disney Animation. Mandy Moore plays the fiery Rapunzel, and she is no damsel in distress. But the true star of TANGLED is the animators who turned Rapunzel’s flowing blonde hair into its own character.
The Princess and the Frog
September 27–October 3
Relatively new compared to the other titles on this list, though PRINCESS has built up a steady fan base over the years, and we expect them to turn out to see this one on the big screen once again. FROG has a distinct New Orleans flavor to it, tapping into the music and cuisine of the Bayou. But it also has star power, with Anika Noni Rose, Keith David and Oprah Winfrey all lending their voices.
As you can see, each film in the series will get a one-week run in participating theatres. It’s worth noting that this will be the animated version of BEAUTY AND THE BEAST — the one that was nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars® — and that warrants a big-screen revisiting every chance we get.
This won’t exactly carry us all the way through to FROZEN II, as that movie doesn’t reach theatres until November 22. But this is as good of a way to help pass the time as we can imagine.
