'Beauty and the Beast' Official Trailer banks on nostalgia


This looks like a shot-for-shot movie of the 1991 animated version. I would know, the dialogue has been imprinted into my brain from the countless times I saw this film as a kid. I remember vividly re-watching the old VHS I had of it. The ending would always cut off for some reason. Oh, VHS you were a terrible technology. The marketing behind this film is basically nostalgia, but also for a whole new generation to take a look at this magnificent story. I'll buy that and it might be the first time I actually sucker up and watch one of these live-action remakes of the old Disney animated classics.

Nevertheless this looks quite competently made and the music, the music, the music. That score always gave me chills. I'd also go as far as to say that the 1991 "Beauty and the Beast" is the greatest of the Disney comeback run of films between ("The Little Mermaid," 'Beauty and the Beast," "Aladdin," "The Lion King") not a small feat. I'd also put it as a contender for greatest of all-time, right up there with "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs," "Bambi," "Dumbo" and "Pinnochio."
