It’s everything we love about the classic, adding everything we hope to our world.” “Beauty and the Beast has been my favorite Disney show since I was a little girl and it’s currently also a favorite of my little girls. We watch it often together and they obviously dress up and become the characters. Minds, they can see each other. inside because, luckily, the society around them and who I allow into their lives allows their imaginations to create a world I could only dream in. So I’m excited to do it, not just for myself, but above all for them. “
