A telling of Beauty and the Beast so painful that you’d think it came from Dingo Pictures but, NOPE! It’s a British production by Bevanfield Pictures who somehow managed to get some real actors like Christopher Lee! (This is also where the ugly guy came from.)
Originally a part of Nippon Animation’s Grimm’s Fairy Tale Classics series, this anime version of the story was brought to us in English by Saban.
The comic relief ghosts reveal they are actually the Beast’s victims forced to roam the Earth until they get him laid.
The 2nd Beauty and the Beast by Golden Films doesn’t waste as much time on the father. It wastes it on 3 ghosts that fly into the storybook.
If you threaten to kill both her and her father for picking a rose Beauty will pretty much be in love with you right away.
A tale retold many times… mostly because of the Disney version but few can really capture how Beauty’s lights were on but no one was home, her father being such an ass and the Beast being a goomba warthog.
So, the CW decided to remake Beauty and the Beast while missing the whole point. How did the pilot hold up?
It’s Beauty and the Beast, heavy on the romance and schmaltz!
