Disney’s Live Action Beauty and the Beast Teaser Trailer

Beauty and the Beast is one of the very first Disney movies I have recollection of seeing in the theater. We also ended up owning it on VHS and it was a well loved and well played story. Just as I type this “Tale as Old as Time” is playing in my mind.

I’m pretty excited to see how Disney transforms the beloved cartoon fairy tale into live action on the screen and they’ve just released their first teaser trailer.

Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” is a live-action re-telling of the studio’s animated classic which refashions the classic characters from the tale as old as time for a contemporary audience, staying true to the original music while updating the score with several new songs.

On Loving the Teenage Years.
