As much as I love Disney’s The Little Mermaid, it’s the fish film’s follow-up that holds a real special place in my heart.
I first saw Beauty and the Beast in college with my girlfriend (a.k.a. My future wife). We both absolutely loved it and I’d even go around doing my best Beast impression as I’d burst out into song and start belting this infamous line: “She glanced this way. I thought I saw. But when we touched, she didn’t shudder at my paw!”
Years later, we saw the amazing Beauty and the Beast show on Broadway (the beast transformation is sooo cool!) to keep the magic alive. We’ve probably seen the animated Disney film a few dozen times I’m sure, and listened to the soundtrack a zillion and one times.
So now, I’m crazy pumped that Disney’s putting together a live-action re-telling of Beauty and the Beast! This tale as old as time gets re-imagined with the same iconic characters and musical numbers that we all know and love.
Toss in a stellar cast, and I cannot wait for Beauty and the Beast to hit theaters! Though unfortunately, I’ll have to since it doesn’t hit theaters until March 17, 2017.
Who’s in it? Some pretty amazing actors including Emma Watson (Hermione from Harry Potter!!!), Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, Kevin Kline, Josh Gad (Olaf!!!), Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci, Ian McKellen and Emma Thompson.
The first sneak-peek of the film is out and if you’re a fan of the original animated movie, you’ll most likely get chills from it. Take a look:

Did you ever see the TV show Beauty and the Beast? It was quite good too. I liked the trailer, it looks to be nicely done with a mix of animation and actors.
OH yeah. I LOVED that show. Used to watch it with my mom and sister when I was little!
Beauty and the Beast is my absolute favorite Disney movie. I normally don’t like it when they make live action movies that were originally cartoons but I am going to have to see this one. It has an amazing cast. Thanks for sharing the teaser trailer, I hadn’t seen it yet.
I’m with you that the live action versions usually don’t do anything for me but this one looks amazing. I wonder if they’ll ever do a live action Little Mermaid!
