Beauty and the Beast to hit the big screen once again
Following in the footsteps of so many Disney classics such as Sleeping Beauty, Disney has decided to revitalize their franchise by making another live in color classic Disney rendition.
Although a specific release date has not been set for the release of the new Beauty and the Beast film, talks are already swirling about who will direct it. Disney is said to have enlisted the help of Bill Condon to direct the film.
Who could forget the musical stylings of "Belle"; "Something There" ; "Be Our Guest" ; and "Beauty and the Beast"? In 1991, audiences were wowed by the story of a young, naive girl who thought that she could take on the world, until she realized she was missing a very important part of it. She was the key to open up a soul that had been trapped within a being that could not love. Though villains threatened to consume their new love, their destiny could not be overthrown.
After reflecting on the film from so many years ago, it's hard to envision a remake that will capture the sheer essence of the original animated story. No specific details such as casting choices for the film have been released. We can only hope that this tale as old as time will be just as ennobling as its predecessor.
We want to know what you think! Are you looking forward to this remake or should Disney simply leave well enough alone? Vote below!
