    Beauty and the Beast has always been one of my favorite Disney movies alongside Tarzan and Toy Story! I love the characters, the songs are spectacular, the voice actors are perfect for their characters, and the story is amazing. The Broadway version of this movie was actually the first Broadway show that I’ve ever seen, so there’s that too. I also can’t wait for the Live Action to come out next year.

  2. Steve says:

    Well did you know in the old fairy tale version, the female lead she had evil sisters, though they never contribute much to the plot, so makes sense to cut them out. Besides Gaston is way better.

    You are going to cover other Disney movies? When this year or next year? Little Mermaid would be good, as would Aladdin, or Lion King. Speaking of Aladdin, ever seen the TV series very underrated.

    Would you ever look at the Direct to video movies, most of them are terrible, the rare good ones, the Aladdin sequels, Lion King 2, and Cinderella 3, those are decent, at least some effort was put into them.

    I rather the Beast has stayed looking like a beast, I agree with you guys there.

    I am not sure the witch that cast the spell, is she suppose to be sympathetic or not, some versions of the story she is sympathetic, other version she is plain evil.
