Beauty and the Beast may be Disney’s most enchanting animated feature. The 1991 film introduced a new generation of more-empowered Disney heroines, and its stellar score made it a natural fit to adapt for Broadway in 1994.
Now on March 17, a new live-action Beauty and the Beast hits the big screen — helmed by Bill Condon, the gay musical guru who gave us Chicago and Dreamgirls. Harry Potter’s Emma Watson as Belle and Downton Abbey’s Dan Stevens as the Beast will lead a huge cast of stars including Ewan McGregor, Ian McKellan, Emma Thompson, Stanley Tucci and Audra McDonald. But will you be their guest for yet another incarnation of the fairytale? Or when it comes to Beauty and the Beast, is the bloom already off the enchanted rose?
