Well… I haven’t felt this compelled to write a blog post in a while (since July 12 to be exact) but here I am. Why? Because the Beauty and the Beast live-action movie trailer was released today AND I AM SO HAPPY.
It legitimately gave me all of the feels. I may or may not have danced around the office with my arms out and eyes closed like a weirdo following the first view. And then I watched it again. And again.
You see, Beauty and the Beast was my favourite Disney movie as a child. Every time I wanted to see it, I would get my mom to watch the first few minutes with me because of the “scary” part, and then I’d sit there and get lost in my imagination. I’m in love with the story, the characters, the music, the everything.
I don’t think they could have cast a better Belle in Emma Watson. At least from the preview, it seems like the perfect choice. And for those who have been living under a rock since 1991… *SPOILER ALERT* I cannot wait for the big reveal of Dan Stevens as the prince (you beautiful human you). March 17, 2017 is already marked in my calendar.
If you haven’t seen it for yourself. Here it is. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
