The 1991 Beauty and the Beast is my favorite Disney animated film. I remember seeing it in the theater with my sister-in-law and being amazed at how real the library dance scene looked. Naturally, when I heard it was coming to the big screen as a live-action film, I was super excited.
Especially with it's all-star cast of actors like Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, Kevin Kline, Josh Gad, Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci, Ian McKellen, and Emma Thompson just to name a few.
Add the fact that Celine Dion is going to perform an original song "How Does a Moment Last Forever" for the film and I don't know if it can get any better.
I saw it twice in theaters during opening week.
Wait, there's something more...starting April 7th, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST fans will be able to sing along with their favorite characters when the “Beauty and the Beast Sing-Along” hits approximately 1,200 theaters nationwide! That's right, you can view the film with on-screen lyrics for several of the songs (as if you weren't already secretly singing along to yourself in your theater recliner seat eating sour patch kids).
Feel free to print of these activity sheets below to keep the Beauty and the Beast excitement flowing in your house. If you haven't seen this film yet (at least a couple times), what are you waiting for?!
BEAUTY AND THE BEAST opens in theaters everywhere on March 17, 2017.
