The tale as old as time has found its release date and first official trailer. This is amazing news because I love Disney movies! I grew up during the time of Aladdin, Lion King and other films during the Disney cartoon resurgence - it's always had a special place in my heart. When Disney started to create live-action remakes of their films, I've been a bit mixed on the subject. Some have been enjoyable (Cinderella) while others missed the mark (Maleficent). Beauty and the Beast is one such film I've eagerly waited for since I heard it went into production.
For those unfamiliar with the tale, Beauty and the Beast is a remake of the cartoon with the same name. It follows the story of Belle (played by Emma Watson) who becomes a prisoner of the Beast (Dan Stevens) and their growing infatuation for each other as he learns to love again and she looks beyond his appearance. The original cartoon is still one of the only Disney cartoons (or any cartoon, in fact) to be nominated for Best Picture at the Academy Awards.
The movie is going to be released March 17, 2017 - which means a lot to me because it is near a special day for me. You can check out the trailer below to get a look at the official trailer.
