Various Artists│Beauty and the Beast (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)
Arguably the most highly anticipated fairytale remake, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast is hitting theaters March 17th. There have been rave reviews and critical ones, but no matter who you speak to, no one can deny Disney production’s extensive budget to attempt to transport viewers to The Beast’s West Wing, Belle’s charming town, the hills, the ballroom, the LIBRARY. Yes, I am one of those women who is a little girl at heart when it comes to this, unbelievably excited to see my favorite Disney princess come to life in the form of my idol, feminist, Hermione-Granger-attitude Emma Watson. So much so that I don’t know if the movie can truly disappoint. The magic can be felt through the trailers, and I expect it to carry through the screening.
One of the most exciting aspects of the Beauty and the Beast remake is the A-list stars who are featured on the movie soundtrack composed by Alan Menken. John Legend and Ariana Grande have already dropped their version of “Beauty and the Beast,” dripping with the enchantment of the yellow ballgown scene. Both are on tour this spring for the “Darkness and Light Tour” and “Dangerous Woman Tour,” respectively.
Josh Groban, a respected Broadway actor (The Great Comet), dropped “Evermore;” the song that leads into The Beast’s emotional metamorphosis and his love for Belle. However, the list does not end here. Celine Dion sings “How Does a Moment Last,” and the assortment of other actors behind the famous characters feature on the soundtrack.
Beauty and The Beast the musical is on tour in 2017.
