Quick Thoughts: Beauty and the Beast; 2017
“Beauty and the Beast” has been in theaters for almost two weeks and I’m honestly itching to see it again; I’ve got the fever! I was polite enough to mouth along to my favorite songs, although on the inside I was actually running around the theater singing about my own provincial life. Baguettes everywhere. I was three years old when the animated classic was in theaters, so do I remember actually going to the theater? Nope. However, I do remember watching the VHS on repeat, trapesing around our house in the iconic Belle gown, and obsessing over a magic mirror that showed me the beast. I’ve been #DisneyObsessed since before I could remember and Belle was a princess I looked up to as a kid because of how much she loved to read. My nose was/is/will be constantly stuck in a book. This movie brought up a lot of memories for me. Especially about that dang magic mirror, to the point that I took a Facebook poll about it and there were many magic mirror obsessed friends out there. But, it also reminded me just how amazing Belle is as a princess. Disney can do a fantastic job about creating characters we keep with us. The movie was beautiful, fun, and truly nostalgic but also created something new for the story which is always refreshing. Go see it! Your friends Lumiere and Cogsworth are waiting for you to be their guest.
