One of my all-time favorite Disney movies is getting a makeover this year, a live-action makeover. And as much as I loved the animated film, I can’t wait for the new one. I’m still trying to figure out how to get sneak peek or screening of the film because honestly I die a little inside every time I watch one of the trailers. March can’t come soon enough.
And every time I hear more awesome news about the movie. I’m really really really hoping that our movie screening at Disney Moms this year is Beauty and the Beast. I mean, a girl can dream right? In case you haven’t heard, there’s more to be excited about than just getting to see Beauty and the Beast played out live. These are the main things you need to know about the new Beauty and the Beast movie. Stay tuned over the next six weeks. As soon as I hear more about the movie, I’ll update this post with more news.

The Music in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast
The new movie will feature new recordings of songs from the original movie as well as a couple of new original songs, including one called “How Does a Moment Last Forever” with a studio version recorded by Celine Dion. The main cast will be singing in the movie, and I’m already in love with this version of Belle from Emma Watson.
The title song of the movie Beauty and the Beast will be recorded by Ariana Grande and John Legend. Not sure how I feel about that pairing, but that’s what we’ve got. I’m hoping they surprise me. And with Alan Menken responsible for the music and Tim Rice and Howard Ashman over lyrics, I’m sure it’ll all be amazing.
