    I think this will be good. I can see Emma Watson in the part. The trailer didn’t show much but did leave it up to your imagination.

    Oh my goodness I had no idea Beauty and the Beast was coming out! My six year old granddaughter is going to go bananas when she hears about this 😀

  6. Nooo, not 2017! BatB is my favorite animated Disney movie even though my son had me play it a million times when he was a toddler. I was worried that they were going to mess it up until I saw the cast and now I can’t wait. That was a very teasing teaser.
