For the past couple years, Disney has been focused on bringing to life it’s timeless classics. Films like Tarzan, the Jungle Book, and Alice in Wonderland have been remade in live action movies. Disney’s Beauty and the Beast seems to be next in line releasing its first full trailer.
While fans of the movies are split right down the middle, Disney keeps knocking them out. While the studio isn’t enjoying the kind of success they’d hope with these films, people are still flocking to see them. Some fans want to share the magic and excitement of the films they grew up watching with their kids. Other fans think they’re ruining classic films. With superhero films dominating the box office it’ll be a good break up for family movies.

“An adaptation of the classic fairy-tale about a monstrous prince and a young woman who fall in love.”
the 1991 original:
“Belle, whose father is imprisoned by the Beast, offers herself instead, unaware her captor to be an enchanted prince.”
So why does Disney keep bringing old stories back to life? It’s simple really. Special effects in movies are finally where they need to be to be convincing. What was once restricted to animation, now can be brought to life with real actors. Production quality has risen to a level where you can believe the character is actually in the story.
Beauty and the Beast will hit theaters on March 17, 2017. The live action film stars Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, and Luke Evans. The film is one of Disney’s all-time classics and should bring fans of the original out by the dozen.
