Josh Gad Surprises BEAUTY AND THE BEAST Theater Audiences in NYC

Share

Weather or not this is an ad is just a matter of semantics since now I can't wait to go see the new movie.

Warning: There are spoilers below for the live-action "Beauty and the Beast".

As was expected, this remake made some changes and additions to the original story. Introducing us to Belle (Emma Watson), we follow her life in her small French village until it's nearly unbearable, by which point the actual conflict involving her father (Kevin Kline) and the titular Beast (Dan Stevens) comes into play. "I was a Disney princess again", Apple Legario, SM City PR manager, said in her Faceook post.

Later that night, Belle dances in her iconic yellow gown to the titular "Beauty and the Beast" song with the Beast in his ballroom.

"Classic fairytales have timeless messages in them, and I think every generation loves them and always finds something different in them". (Which is INSANE.) And the enchanted objects are done so well that it's only slightly more thrilling when you see this cast - Ewan McGregor!

"Everything else looked gorgeous, Emma Watson was handsome, the sets were incredible, and there's me just sweating away!" "It's about the world Bill Condon has created in this film".

"The parents will be hugging me, like, 'Oh, I grew up with you!' And the little kids are trying to figure it out", she says. Remember that this is not exactly the same as the original (if that's what you are expecting) and the more you compare the two, the less you will enjoy this version. Just don't ask him to sing Howard Ashman's timeless classics.

Gad told People that the story is "one of inclusiveness" - a point Bailey agreed with, without commenting further.

"I'll let [it] speak for itself", Gad said. "He was already an established genius", she recalls, "and the stardust that he sprinkled on the Disney animated franchise resonates still today". It took in a strong $11.5 million on its opening day, debuting as the No. 1 film in all but one market (Slovakia, where it was the No. 1 non-local film).
