I don't know about you all, but I have moments when I'm feeling nostalgic, ready to watch all the shows and movies that brought me so much joy in childhood.

Streaming platforms and apps have proven to be helpful, but for some of us whose favorite shows or films from the past are only available on DVD or VCR ( I happen to have both still), it can be challenging to watch certain things. For instance, watching the 1997 Rodgers and Hammerstein's made-for-TV Cinderella movie on YouTube despite the low quality would have to suffice, unfortunately.


But no need to worry.

On Friday, February 12, this will no longer be the case. Why is that? This iconic film starring Brandy and Whitney Houston ( Houston also happened to produce the movie) is finally coming to Disney+. I could not contain my excitement!

Let's take a little trip through memory lane to give appreciation for this film.

Brandy not only did a fantastic job portraying a lovely and caring princess, the cast was also very diverse and inclusive, which is admirable. It's hard not to recognize a magical world that represented all aspects of the representation within the world and that there is so much potential to follow your dreams and make them a reality.

It's hard to forget that both Brandy and the late Whitney Houston have some of the most angelic voices ever to grace the music industry.

All in all, it is thrilling that Disney+ is releasing the movie for the many of us who had fond memories of the chic and goddess energy of Fairy Godmother ( portrayed by Houston), the kindness of Cinderella, or Queen Constantina ( portrayed by Whoopi Goldberg).

It's equally as remarkable for the new generation to experience the wonders as well. February 12 can't come soon enough!

We need to stop keeping reptiles as pets. It puts us and them in danger

Florida is scrambling to protect threatened gopher tortoises and burrowing owls from the green iguanas invading their burrows.

By Liz Cabrera Holtz, Wildlife Campaign Manager.

Florida is scrambling to protect threatened gopher tortoises and burrowing owls from the green iguanas invading their burrows. Red-eared sliders, a turtle with a native range through the Midwest and as far east as West Virginia, are now threatening other turtle species both here and across the world.

And just a few months ago, an escaped venomous zebra snake terrified a Raleigh community and made international headlines. In every case, the wild pet trade is to blame.

Our selfish desire to keep reptiles and other wild animals as pets is jeopardizing local ecosystems and pushing multiple species to the brink of extinction. It's also endangering our health.
