The Little Mermiad coming out next year isn't the Disney film.

Default Two Songs Too Long

Very good, tied up lots of plot holes. It was two songs too long (Days in the Sun and Evermore) otherwise I liked it. This is a great time for bathroom break. Also my 1yo and 2yo dressed as Belle and we all went to watch it.

They LOVED it so cannot beat that for me!

I'll have to see Beauty and the Beast on the big screen just to get the full CGI experience.
I still have yet to see that one. I'm not much for CGI though... so that doesn't appeal much. Fortunately we have a very good set up at home for movies and don't mind if I miss 'the big screen' most of the time.

My schedule is crazy coming up and would rather make time for other things I think. I was never a huge Beauty & The Beast fan though anyway *blushing*

I'm not really big on any of the remakes. Let's go crazy and do something new!

How about ...deep breath... Moana (great flick), The BFG, Born in China, Zootopia, Ghost in the Shell, Coko, any number of marvel films, and a number of other sequels such as Cars 3, Star Wars Franchise, Pirates of the Caribbean, and that's just 2016+.

In fact, they have always turned their popular films into live action remakes. It's just part of the system. 101 Dalmatians, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan to name a few. Admittedly, they seem to be vamping up on everything. The Disney machine is cranking out a lot of material some popular and some not so popular.

On Beauty and the Beast. My 25 DD absolutely loved it, and she had a Beauty and the Beat wedding. I hear Emma did the movie justice.

It also crossed my mind that the Real 3D they use now in theaters is better than what they have in Disney Parks.

I am sure there were deliberate production choices to to enhance the film this many years later. All in all, I thought the movie was amazing and one of Disney's finest pieces of animation - ever!

Agreed. I never see the constant need to compare, especially when each differing version can be enjoyable entertainment on its own merits.

But then I don't compare WDW and Disneyland either and am able to enjoy both equally...

Really? Disney puts out, what, 30 movies a year between WDP, Marvel, LA, Pixar, Touchstone, Miramax, Dimension, and others? They do one remake out of those 30 and they aren't doing anything new?
