The animated Disney version of Beauty and the Beast came out when I was 8 so I hold it pretty near and dear to my heart. I loved books, I loved fancy dresses and I loved the idea that inanimate objects might talk and/or sing to me. Right in my wheelhouse. I can also still sing the song ‘Belle’ in it’s entirety with all of the extra voices. Not a skill that is particularly useful when you’re 33, but I digress.
When I first heard that they were going to be making a live-action version, I’ll admit my eye twitched a bit. But then I heard Emma Watson would play the lead (love her) and I set my hopes a little bit higher. They finally came out with a more lengthy trailer for the show today and dare I saw…it looks pretty good? Hope so.
