Disney animation played a significant role in childhood entertainment. Whether it be Mickey Mouse and Friends, Disney Princesses, The Incredibles or Cars, there was something for every child no matter the gender or age. Except the older we get, the less time or interest teenagers have in watching dated Disney movies.

Walt Disney Pictures understands what it takes to captivate an older crowd and the generation who grew up on the classic films. In March 2017, the romantic, classic tale of “Beauty and the Beast” will be screening in realistic form.

For those who are unfamiliar with the tale of “Beauty and the Beast,” it is more than a young girl whisked away on the dance floor in a poofy yellow dress. It is an enchanting love story where a prince is held prisoner under a spell which forces him to take the appearance of a hideous beast. Belle, a young French girl seems to be the only person who can cure the Beast of the curse.

Recognizable names were cast in the classic remake such as Emma Watson (Belle), Dan Stevens (The Beast) Luke Evans (Gaston) and Stanley Tucci (Cadenza). Singers Ariana Grande and John Legend are the voices behind the covered theme song “Beauty and the Beast.”

“Beauty and the Beast” premieres March 17.
