Hi everyone! I hope your week’s going well so far! For today’s Romantic Tuesday post, I wanted to share the latest “Beauty and the Beast” movie trailer. The trailer was released this month. The movie will be in theaters on March 17, 2017. After I watched the trailer, it seems like it’s the same story as Disney’s 1991 animated version. I’m familiar with some of the cast members such as: Emma Watson as Belle, Ewan McGregor as Lumiere the candle, Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts the teapot and Kevin Kline as Maurice, Belle’s father. Even though I haven’t watched all of the episodes yet, I was a fan of the TV show from the 80’s. I was 10 when the Disney movie was released in 1991 and I loved it. I saw the Broadway version of the play a few years ago. I’m excited to watch the movie in March. I don’t think my son wants to watch it though I plan to watch “Beauty and the Beast” at the IMAX theater. How about you, do you plan on watching it? Why or why not?
Although there’s several covers of the song, “Beauty and the Beast,” I’m including the original by Peabo Bryson and Celine Dion. Wikipedia says the song won a Golden Globe and Academy Award for Best Original Song. It also won two Grammy Awards. The song also peaked at number 9 on the Billboard Hot 100. In 2004, the American Film Institute officially recognized “Beauty and the Beast” as one of the greatest songs in film history. It was ranked at 62nd. I think it should’ve been ranked higher.
P.S. On another happy note, I want to say happy birthday to my mom! Thank you for supporting this blog and visiting often. I wish you many more years of good health and happiness…and of course, how about them Cowboys?! Love your daughter, Lisa a.k.a. El Paso Woman and your grandson, Jacob. We love you!
