It’s all about those adaptations, retellings, or even reboots, depending on the lingo you prefer. Disney has released its retooled, live action version of its 1992 version of the classic tale Beauty and the Beast.
Fairy tales, which are all in the public domain as they were first published hundreds of years ago, are popular fodder for retelling. While Disney has given the moniker “tale as old as time” to Beauty and the Beast, any of the old fairy tales are deserving of the label.
In honor of the new movie and all things retold, this weekend, my adult retelling of the story, Beauty and Her Beastly Love, will be 99 cents. The price will go back up to $2.99 on Monday, so grab it now. Like all the passion-filled fairy tales, this is a grown-up version of the story, and not for kids.
If you’re considering going to see the live-action Beauty and the Beast starring Emma Watson (LOVE her!), then refamiliarize yourself with the original cartoon with these two hilarious videos about them.
