I loved 'Beauty and the Beast' when I was a child, although saying that, I still love it now! Maybe it was because Belle was the brunette princess who had a magical way with animals. At the time I was dreaming of becoming a vet. All the animals would love me and we'd live in a big mansion! Clearly that future didn't actually happen. Seven years at university? I don't think so! Anyway, I digress.
Disney's 2017 live action version was released a few weeks ago but I've not seen it yet. I have to say I'm sceptical. I have no doubt that I will love that it's filled with CGI. From snapshots and trailers it can't be argued that it's a good looking film.
I suppose my fear comes from it tainting my view of the characters. The cartoon version is so firm in my mind what if this live action version doesn't live up to it? I will have to take the plunge and see it at some point but first I think I'll re-watch the traditional 2D version - I know I'll enjoy that!
