Tale as old as time. True as it can be
Seeing that castle always makes me so happy
With the trailer release of the upcoming (2017) live action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast starring Emma Watson as Belle and Dan Stevens as the Beast, I thought it might be fun to chat about Disney movies.
I am personally excited to see this movie and am really interested in hearing Emma Watson sing. Is it just me or are most actors and actresses secret singers? I know I’m not going to be winning any awards anytime soon for my shower cover of the Thong Song by Sisqo so I generally find it interesting when someone randomly announces they are going to be in a musical.
No matter how old I get I will always love Disney movies, but it is the classic ones that I love the most – maybe it’s the nostalgia but I mainly think it’s because they really are great fairytales for children and adults alike.
