Disney’s new live-action version of “Beauty and the Beast” is similarly transporting. Yes, there are two new songs and they fit seamlessly in a film that had a room full of cynical critics, including me, applauding at the end.
“Directed by movie-musical veteran Bill Condon (Dreamgirls and the script for Chicago), Beauty and the Beast is a movie that can’t quite figure out what it wants to say that it didn’t already say back in 1991”, Nashawaty writes. “I’ve always wanted to do this show, but I’ve never had the opportunity”. The world it creates is no more “real” than the one in the 1991 animated version.

Many families in the country were upset by the move and appealed directly to Disney and actress Emma Watson.
“That was incredible. It was the most invigorating thing I’ve ever done”, Stevens said after the final number. Have a great day at the movies and don’t forget to save me some popcorn. The songs speak for themselves.
