Sure to Be a "Beauty" and a "Beast"

Here's a look at the cover of Entertainment Weekly and its insider view of Disney's live action Beauty and the Beast. The film is a beloved classic, even now after 25 years since it's initial release. 

Will Dan Stevens and Emma Watson be able to duplicate the heart felt success of the original roles made famous by Robby Benson and Paige O'Hara? My guess is yes- with some twists along the way. And the film is sure to be a creative beauty, a smash when released in Spring 2017. And sure to be a beast when it comes to padding Disney's bottom line financially.

Disney's banking on the film to re-ignite interest in its upcoming theme park expansions in the Asia market as well as in the US. Where will the Imagineers build these breathtaking attractions? Take a look here- including 25 years of how Disney's animated classic has been infused into the Disney culture world-wide.
