Personally, I'm disenchanted by Disney's "let's take our older animated movies and recycle them from a different character's point of view" assembly line output as of late. Beauty and the Beast. Cinderella. Dumbo. Alice In Wonderland. I'd much rather them take an original idea and nurture and water it than retread former glories. I don't know. It just feels uninspired and lazy. I do love the Beauty and the Beast story, but for me nothing will ever top Jean Cocteau's version (which Disney borrowed heavily from for their animated take). With that in mind, a foreign remake of Cocteau's film was already released last year (this time around with a CGI face for the beast... though the prosthetics of the original film conveyed more emotion):
