I finally saw it! This weekend! And that was kind of perfect because it was my mom’s birthday, and this is her very favorite Disney movie. One of the first questions I had when I found out this adaptation was happening was: Will it be a musical? The answer is a resounding YES, and I cannot express how gleefully happy this made me.

However, because the 1991 animated feature is one of my favorite movie musicals of all time, I have a slightly different set of criteria when it comes to reviewing it. Usually my priorities fall this way:


  1. Characters.

  2. Setting / atmosphere.

  3. Plot.


In a musical though? Everything falls somewhere after one question: Can they sing?

Once upon a time, I decided to do a Disney Princess retrospective. I got stuck after Aladdin because Pocahontas comes immediately after that one and I hated it, BUT. I did review 1991's Beauty and the Beast before I cashed out. (Side note: One day I am going to go back and fix all the dead links and filtered image uploads in my port over from LJ, but today is not that day.)

In the ongoing trend of Disney swallowing its own tail, I mean going after nostalgic cash grabs, I mean creating live action reinventions of their most beloved animated features, the next one in the queue is my mother's very favorite Disney movie. I also have a strong amount of personal fondness for it, and Belle is probably my favorite Disney princess after Elsa in Frozen. (Tiana from the criminally under-appreciated Princess and the Frog is tied in that second-place slot, by the way.) It's been on my list since I found out it was happening. Regardless of the stellar cast and gorgeous trailer, there was no way I was going to not see this movie in theaters, with Mom.



But here's why I'm talking about it today: They are making LeFou gay. Let the overreactive pearl-clutching begi--WELL DAMN, THAT DIDN’T TAKE LONG.

Big giant graphix post, as promised! Many fandoms, therefore many pictures (of many sizes). This time, instead of doing just icons, I made some "Friends Only" banners as well. I don't lock my journal, because honestly I just don't see the point, but I know some folks do so I threw some stuff together.

Enjoy!
