Wow. And this is after the public has already seen the film. I guess the film is actually liked by more people than I expected. But maybe I've let the rancor of this forum give me a false impression on this topic. :lol:

Did Disney reissue this to theaters or digital? Either way, well done. I have to now admit, people really do like this film and it is fairly good. I mean, I do also like this film.

The directors of the original talk about the remake.

Quote:
“I have mixed feelings about the live-action remakes. On one hand, it’s great to have been involved in movies that have had so much longevity and have created so much affection for them in the audience that they’d be excited to see a new adaptation of the movie,” Wise said, diplomatically, before continuing. “But also, it’s like...go watch the old one.” Trousdale was more direct. “My completely objective and non-varnished opinion is that the animated ones are better anyway,” Trousdale said. “And that’s just me.” Wise then chimed in: “It’s not just you.” [...]

“I didn’t get a red cent from the new Beauty and the Beast,” Wise said. “No, there was no financial to it. And the fact that we got credit was a surprise to me,” Trousdale confirmed. Wise exclaimed: “Me too! Thanks!” Trousdale then explained how he even found out that they would be receiving credit. “I got invited to the premiere at the El Capitan, which was a surprise. I know Don Hahn [who produced the original Beauty and the Beast] pulled strings to make that happen,” Trousdale said. “And I’m sitting there with my girlfriend and the credits went by was like ‘Holy crap there I am!’” Again, he thanks Hahn: “Don worked his magic with that as well.”

So much for giving the original team the respect they deserve. So now we had Trousdale and Wise, Woolverton and Lansbury bashing this travesty of a film. Who's next? I'm sure Don Hahn wasn't thrilled as well.

It's disappointing they didn't get paid for anything and felt even being credited was unlikely. I wonder if that would happen with re-makes of live-action films or is that only something that's been happening with these re-makes of animated films? The fact that the original is better is the case for most film re-makes, not just Disney. The re-makes to Poltergeist, Carrie, etc. all pale in comparison. Re-making things for money is just the way of the world. *shrug*

I'm going to have to disagree with Glen. The original scene in question was infinitely better.

Glen Keane says the 'Beauty and the Beast' remake perfected a scene he had trouble creating

Same here. Not only it's a proof of pure love (self sacrifice) but telling Belle about it would imply that he would indirectly influence her feelings.

Well, it's noticaeble he doesn't give his opinion of the film overall. :lol: Like most original talent, I'm sure he has no appreciation for the remakes whatsoever. They are quick cash-ins by Disney after all.

Next time I watch the films, I'll try to watch for that moment to see what he means. There are always scenes that could have been done in a slightly different way and it could've been for the better for all I know. *shrug*

I do love the song "Days in the sun" for a very personal reason. I think it's a sweet melody that is simple but yet lovely. I like "Evermore" as a song but not in the film because (in my humble opinion) just like Speechless it stops the film at the worst time possible.

The only scene that I do think is an upgrade from the original is when Belle tells her father that it is dangerous to go back to the castle.
I like the way Emma delivers that line. It's one of the few moments in the film that makes me forget that it is Emma Watson pretending to be Belle.

No, Glen. Just no.

If it's an "aha" moment like he just gets the idea, that's not nearly as emotional nor as sense-making as him thinking about if he should let her go and it tearing him up as he decides to let her go. Unless he means it's like a prayer like "please let her come back and love me", yet that still isn't as emotional or as sense-making.

I was just watching the movie, and during the scene where the Beast tells the mirror, "Show me the girl", is it me, or that's not Dan Stevens? It sounds like it's taken from the animated movie. Dan Steven talks with an English accent, and the line is clearly said with an American accent. Did anyone else notice this? Or has this quarantine made me lose my mind? :lol: :lol:

That was lovely!

The only thing is Oz the Great and Powerful isn't a remake.

Thank you! Yes, I know it isn't. I forgot about it when I wrote my post haha and that's why the video is named Disney Live action instead of Disney remakes. :P
