Tale as Old as Time

https://www.pinterest.com/pin/314477986451731085/

Hullo, lovely peoples! So you may all be wondering why I'm posting on a Monday instead of Thursday or Friday...or you may be wondering, "Does she even have a schedule?" (And no, I don't. XD) Welllll...there is a VERY special reason for this impromptu post. Because I just found out (as in this morning *cough*) that they released the first trailer for the new live-action Beauty and the Beast film!!! *SQUEALS* I'M SERIOUSLY SO PUMPED. NO WORDS CAN CONVEY MY ECSTASY.

SO. Because I love you guys so very much, I naturally decided to bestow this beautimous trailer upon my loyal bookdragons. No need to thank me. Just watch the trailer and sing my praises in the comments section if you have the mind. ;)


IS IT BEAUTIFUL OR WHAT??? Seriously, I love this thing more than chocolate. (Okay, maybe not that much, but you get the picture.)

I totally had chills when I watched it. The castle, the ballroom, the music, the rose, the Ian McKellen (who is playing Cogsworth, much to my immense joy). It's all perfect. The only problem now is how I shall survive until March 17...

Oh, and just so you don't fret, I DO plan to still be posting something on Thursday or Friday. I've been incredibly busy so please excuse my negligence in replying to comments. You're all the sweetest, and I LOVE reading your comments. Yet time is a little rascally thing which delights in racing past in a blur. One day I'll catch up with it.

 

What are your thoughts? Are you as excited as I am for the new movie? (The cast is absolutely STELLAR!) What was your favorite moment of the trailer?

    1. Ack, isn't the music INCREDIBLE?? It hearkens back to the animated film, but I hear that there will be several brand-new songs as well! SO MUCH HAPPINESS. <333

  3. AAAAAAAAAGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH WHY CAN'T THIS MOVIE BE RELEASED SOONER.

    I saw the trailer yesterday and FREAKED OUT because it is gorgeousssssssssssssss and epic and just all-around awesome. I mean, sure, they revealed basically nothing about the story, but I can STILL tell it's going to be awesome.

    Emma Watson as Belle and Dan Stevens as the Prince are BRILLIANT choices. Cannot wait to see them in the theater. (I loved Dan so much as Edward Ferrars in Sense and Sensibility and so I was really, really happy when I heard they'd picked him.)

    Also, can I just say your new header is fantastic??? I'm SO happy to meet a fellow P&P 05 fan (not to mention a fellow Force Awakens fan!!)

    1. SERIOUSLY, I HAVE BEEN ASKING MYSELF THAT QUESTION ALL WEEK.

      *squeals* Isn't it just STUNNING? Ahhhh, I just can't handle the awesomeness! It's mind-boggling how they can manage to get us so excited without even showing us the cast. (Except for a three-second cameo by Emma Watson, if you want to count that.)

      ASDFGHLDK. I haven't seen either of them in anything (I know, it's a terrible tragedy which must be remedied), but from what I can tell, they are perfect for the roles! :)

      Awww, you're just too nice! Thank you, dear! (Woohoo! P&P '05 and The Force Awakens are both ah-may-zing!)

    2. DO watch "Sense and Sensibility 2008" if you ever get a chance. It's my favorite period drama ever. (And it's also one of Olivia's favorite period dramas ever. So, y'see, it's GOOD. ;-) )

      Delete
    3. I SO WANT TO. I've actually been dying to see it but haven't gotten around to it yet. (Ah, it must be a good film if Olivia loves it! Always a good indication. :D)

  4. OH GLORIOUS DAY! I am so excited for B&B, especially with Emma Watson as Belle. She is such a good choice for that role! The entire trailer was simply lovely and I just *dies*.

    1. SO MUCH PWETTY. HOW WILL WE SURVIVE UNTIL MARCH 17??? I haven't seen Emma Watson in anything, but I'm thinking she will make a wonderful Belle. *nods* I'm super excited for Ian McKellen, Luke Evans, Josh Gad...and the list keeps going. XD

      ACK, THE TRAILERRRRR. I'VE WATCHED IT WAY MORE THAN IS PROBABLY HEALTHY, BUT I REGRET NOTHING. PLEASE LET IT BE MARCH. LIKE RIGHT NOW. (And yes, I am very eloquent. Thank you for noticing. XD)

  6. Well, you already know I'm excited, so no need to restate that. :)

    And you're right-- the casting is PERFECT! Every time I read the list I find new actors that I recognize.

    2. Aren't we all? I think I can assume so. :D

      Ohmygoodness, the cast is just stunning! I honestly cannot remember a time when I was more excited about the cast. THEY ARE JUST THAT GOOD.

      (And thank you, Meredith! The pictures make me happy, too. ^_^)

  7. I WATCHED IT FOR THE FIRST TIME LAST NIGHT LIKE 3 TIMES BECAUSE BEAUTY AND THE BEEEEAST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    B&B is my faaaaavorite fairytale, and when I heard a couple years ago they were making a B&B movie I've been flailing around waiting and waiting and WAITING. I almost exploded when they FINALLY put up a trailer.

    IT'S SO PERFECT. The castle, the music, EVERYTHING. I...I almost got teary-eyed watching it because it was so beautiful. o.o That's how much I love B&B. It's crazy. BUT AAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!! IT BETTER BE GOOD OR I'M GOING TO BE SO SAD.

    1. SAAAAME. IT'S JUST THE MOST FABGLORIOUS THING EVER. (You can applaud my ingenuity with creating that word. XD)

      Hehe, I KNEW you would be excited! :D :D I remember your saying that B&B was your favorite fairytale. It's never been a favorite of mine, but I'm SUPER pumped about this movie. Probably because it has the most epic cast in the history of EVER. SERIOUSLY DYING OVER THE PERFECTION.

      I was tearing up, too. Don't worry. XD IT'S REALLY JUST SO GORGEOUS. I CAN'T EVEN.

    3. Where's a time machine when you need one??? Ohhh, that's right. YOU got a hold of one and went forward in time to May. Perhaps you can use it again? XD

      Eeep, thank you so much for the tag! I might pass on it this time, just because I have like eight tags to catch up on. :P Hehe. But maaaaybe I'll answer some of the questions in a ginormous tag post. We shall see! :)

      Delete
    4. Ooo! Yes, I forgot about my time machine! That's a SPLENDID idea Mary! *rushes to secret cabinet* *searches for time machine beneath all the invisibility cloaks and such* Oh, oops, I think I lent it to Christine Smith. Huh. And my spare is broken. *pats poor broken spare* I guess we'll have to wait until March. *cries more*

      You're welcome! And that's totally okay if you have to pass :). Whoa, eight tags?! I can't wait to see you do them!

    5. Aw man! Well...let me know once you get it in running order. ;D

      LOL, they kind of built up on me. :P One of the side-effects of being such a popular person, I guess. XD

      Now if you'll excuse me, I'll be asking Christine about a certain time machine...

  10. OH MY GOODNESS. I am /so/ excited for this movie! I'm sure Emma Watson will totally nail Belle's character.

    And AHH GOODNESS THE TEASER TRAILER! That SETTING! And the music! *dies* Oh my goodness, I am obsessed with the music. I am so buying sheet music to it after the movie is out. o.o

    Thanks for sharing! :D
