Beauty and the Beast 3D – A Quick Preview of the Re-Release

by Yo Snyder

Confession time: Beauty and the Beast is one of my all-time favorite movies. I know, it’s a “kids” movie, a “princess” movie, and a fairy tale and so forth, but I still really, really like it. I mean, c’mon, it was the first animated picture to ever be nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars; so obviously it was much more than just a “Disney kids” movie. I saw it in theaters about three times, I bought when it came out on VHS, and then on DVD, and then on Blu-Ray, and when that inevitable Diamond Edition comes out, you bet I’ll pick that up as well. More exciting, however, is the fact that its getting a conversion to 3D and theatrical re-release ala The Lion King, well, you can bet I’ll be there for that. Will this movie prove as worthy of a 3D conversion as Lion King? Will people flock to theaters to see it like they did with Lion King? Time will tell, but in the meantime, here’s a trailer to get us ready. What do you think?
