I remember watching the Beauty and the Beast animated film as a child and instantly falling in love with its story. The concept of appreciating someone for who they are on the inside – it’s the perfect love story. Now it’s back and in a whole new way! Ready to get a sneak peek?
BEAUTY AND THE BEAST | In Theaters March 17th
You’ve probably heard the news by now that BEAUTY AND THE BEAST will once again be hitting theaters March 17th with an entirely new live action film. When I first heard this news, my heart fluttered. I couldn’t think of any other film I’d like to see remade more than this one. Then, I got a chance to preview the trailers and went weak in the knees!
I can fondly remember my love of the film starting way back in 1991 when the original movie came to life. The movie quickly became part of my Disney VHS collection and somehow always found itself at the top of the stack. The theme popped up everywhere – my birthday party, my clothing choices, my favorite stickers in my sticker book. By all characteristics, I could easily pass for a nine-year-old BEAUTY AND THE BEAST groupie.
Soon the story will be back in theaters and will be told by an amazing cast: Belle played by Emma Watson, Dan Stevens as Beast, Luke Evans as Gaston, and Josh Gad as LeFou. I cannot wait to share this film with my daughter, who is the same age I was when the original entered my life.
