SARAH: It’s here! We are Really Into Beauty & the Beast & have been anxiously awaiting the newest film for what seems like forever. It’s time to see our old friends Gaston, Lumière, LeFou, Maurice, Mrs. Potts & Chip, Cogsworth, Beast & Belle. The build up for this film is huge & I’m sure it will be stellar.
Bailey, Annabelle & I splurged on the opening night Fan Event at Regal Cinemas. There is supposed to be special on screen version of “Beauty & the Beast” by Ariana Grande & John Legend as well as giveaways, themed concessions & more. As you can tell, we are pretty excited.
BAILEY: I am looking forward to seeing the gorgeous Emma Watson in the role of Belle. I fell in love with her as Hermione Granger when I was 7 years old (I even own a replica of her wand) and have been impressed with every acting role she’s had since then. Not only is she a fabulous actress, but she radiates confidence, she’s brilliant and she’s independent. Everything a strong woman aspires to be! I couldn’t think of a better actress to depict Belle, the strong, quick-witted Disney princess who looks at others’ true beauty.
SARAH: I’m excited to hear Celine Dion’s new song, “How Does a Moment Last Forever” play over the end credits. I love it because Celine along with Peabo Bryson were the duo on “Beauty & the Beast” in the 1991 animated Disney film. I mean, Celine can do no wrong.
BAILEY: If you’re looking for some stylin’ Beauty & the Beast gear, Gap Kids has a plethora of Disney princess shirts and a brand new Beauty & the Beast collection. A few days ago we bought my Godchild two Belle shirts and they are the cutest! She is now the most fashionable second grader in Portland. The shirts vary from images of Belle to silhouettes of the characters and quotes from the timeless movie.
SARAH: I’m also Really Into these new Pop! Funko Beauty & the Beast set. I have an older Belle in her blue dress, but I might have to spring for some of these newer Funko. Look at Mrs. Potts & Chip- so stinking cute!
BAILEY: I’m also Really Into the fact that there are now Disney princess swimsuits in the works, and Belle’s is ADORABLE. They have so many products and apparel on the horizon for those of us who will always love Disney princesses, and plenty on the market now to celebrate the new Beauty & the Beast flick. I plan on stocking up and you should too! You’re never too old for “a tale as old as time.”
SARAH: We want to know what you think of the movie! Here’s our full thoughts. SPOILER: WE loved it.
