I'm sorry and I know this next phrase is a big ol'e out of character statement for The Movie Watch... but:
So, awesome composer Alan Menken, who did every animated movie musical you have ever loved recently announced that he is doing the next two Disney movies (musical style)!
“ … I am preparing the soundtracks of two Disney animated feature: Rapunzel and The Snow Queen, in addition (to) a live-action musical film about Beauty and the Beast, plus a new (Broadway) musical that will debut in fall 2010, Leap of Faith.”
But. WHAT? I'm sorry, but isn't there a Beauty and the Beast movie already, and isn't making a new one LIVE ACTION and with THE SAME SONGS a little redundant and blasphemous? I think so.
I'm sorry, but while everything else on that quote is awesome, whoever greenlit the live action Beauty and the Beast movie, is the biggest idiot around town.
