Will you watch ABC’s ‘Beauty and the Beast’ Live-Action Show? [POLL]
According to Deadline Hollywood, broadcast network ABC has picked up a new “Beauty and the Beast” TV pilot to air this fall. It is going to be somewhat of a period drama, a fantasy world where a tough princess develops an unusual connection with a dangerous beast.
ABC is owned by Disney, which allows them to use well-known and beloved characters such as Snow White, Cinderella, and all the other princesses we love. Their current drama, Once Upon a Time, already uses those names, and this reincarnation of “Beauty and the Beast” will most likely air along-side Once.
The show will not be animated, but live-action. It won’t shoot for a few more months, but with a name like Disney on the line, who knows what big name actors might be signed on to play the title roles.
Hollywood is constantly reinventing old favorites, for better or for worse. Are you excited for this particular re-imagination? Or do you wish that television would leave the Disney characters alone? Vote below, and explain yourself in the comments!
