As you have heard me harp and gush over my love of Disney, you know that I’ve been a fan of the recent run of live-action remakes based on their animated classics. This year’s addition in the series, The Jungle Book, was one of the year’s best all around movies. The magic about Disney is that it doesn’t just target children, there is something there for everyone of all ages. Larger than life characters, brilliant songs, and fairy tales come to life… It’s the Disney magic that makes the company so successful.
Next year, Disney invites you to revisit a classic fairy tale that audiences have loved for more than twenty years and continues to stand the test of time.
This adaptation of the classic fairy-tale tells the story of a young woman named Belle (Emma Watson) who becomes prisoner by a Beast (Dan Stevens) in order to free her father. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff (Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci, Ian Mckellen, and Emma Thompson) and learns to look beyond the Beast’s exterior to recognize the man and the true heart inside of the animal. But the village’s hunter named Gaston (Luke Evans) is on the loose to take Belle for himself and hunt down the Beast at any cost.
Beauty and the Beast is one of my favorite movies of all time, not just in the realm of Disney. I will definitely be attending this party along with millions of others.
Beauty and the Beast enter theaters in March 17, 2017.
