The best Disney film, without a doubt, goes to Beauty and the Beast. 🙂 The magical love story of how innocent friendship blossomed into a vulnerable love. Belle and the Beast is the epitome of love. 🙂
A few months ago, I found out Broadway on Tour is bringing Beauty and the Beast to my good city! 🙂 I was stoked and dragged Bubble to the play.
We joined hundreds of Beauty and the Beast enthusiasts in the auditorium. Little children wore their Belle and Prince outfits. Two birds with one stone, getting two usages out of their Halloween costumes.
The room darken and flashes flickered — the narrator began. A dark stormy night, a hideous old woman came to the kingdom to seek help and shelter. The Prince turned her away and snarled at her appearance. His impertinent attitude and selfishness led the enchantress to place a spell on him. Until he learns how to love and be loved, he shall remain as a beast and his household will be doomed for all eternity. The play transitioned to showcase Belle, a intelligent, witty, and adventurous girl. She dared to be different and avoided conforming to societal guidelines. Although the two met under rather difficult circumstances, their friendship slowly brewed and the rest is history. 🙂
The story was beautifully played. Even with some of the cheesy lines. 🙂 Lumière’s lighthearted personality and Cogsworth’s uptight character were well played. My favorite is the little teacup, Chip. His few short lines added just the right amount of humor in the story. 🙂
I think it is time to dust off the old VHS tape. Or perhaps, I’ll wait until the new Beauty and the Beast released! 🙂
