Here’s a little nostalgia for you on a Monday. Beauty and the Beast is 25 years old. Yep. Old enough to rent a car.
I was a kid that became more than a little obsessed with the musical when it came out, oh, so many years ago. If you remember, it was some of the first 360 degree computer imaging that we were exposed to, which made it a real event. Not to mention anthropomorphized objects, and the incredible songs. The film took many Disney, fairytale and musical fans’ breath away.
Beauty and the Beast‘s birthday was celebrated this weekend at Lincoln Center in NYC. If you’re like me, you’ll get a real dose of your childhood listening to Angela Lansbury sing. She’s a treasure. It gave me goosebumps. After all these years, Mrs. Potts is still nailing it. Take a look and a listen.
The live action Beauty and the Beast is coming in March, 2017.
