Disney’s juggernaut Beauty and The Beast is coming home to Blu-ray next week – June 6th. Of course there are a million exclusive editions! Steelbook version at Best Buy that’s $29 (are you kidding me?), a Target exclusive that includes a 32 page book and blah, blah. Come on Disney, stop screwing people. If I can’t get a full proper packaged version from ANY store, without feeling like I’m missing out on something, then screw them, I’ll just get the digital version and call it a day. I’m not jumping through hoops for this. I’m sure I probably won’t get my customary free copy after they read this. But honestly, Disney, you know I love you, but stop pulling this stupid crap.
Disney’s latest attempt at translating one of its classic animated films to live-action is a beauty, if a bit flawed.
For the live-action take, the script was tweaked to allow Belle to be even more independent (and less of a Stockholm Syndrome sufferer) and a late tweak include a couple of blink-and-you’ll-miss-it gay moments. Neither of these tweaks is a flaw.
The trailer for Walt Disney Studio’s Beauty and the Beast is the most detailed we’ve seen, so far.
We learn a bit more about its unique heroine, the Beast and his staff and see a bit more of the preening Gason. More importantly, we get a glimpse of how special the relationship is between Belle and her father.
The trailer suggests that Beauty and the Beast will be another soon-to-be classic example of pure Disney magic. Check it out after the break.
