I initially wasn’t that interested about this movie, but after watching the teaser and hearing Alan Menken’s score… Beauty and the Beast has always been my favourite Disney movie (I mean: a bookworm that always has her head in the clouds? Come on!) and this just makes me want to sing along to all the songs again. I can’t wait for this now:
I also initially thought it was going to be another live-action but-slightly-different adaption like Alice in Wonderland and Malificent, but it turns out they’re keeping most of the songs from the animation! Plus the cast sounds amazing: Emma Watson as Belle, Dan Stevens as The Beast, Luke Evans as Gaston, Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts, Ewan McGregor as Lumière, Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, Kevin Kline as Maurice, Josh Gad as LeFou… yeah, I’m totally onboard for this!
