Wonder Woman and IT made a huge impression at the box office this year, but both failed to overtake 2017’s biggest hit: Beauty and the Beast. Released back in March, Disney’s blockbuster reimagining of its animated classic is still the highest-grossing film of the year, and as we wade into the prestigious waters of awards season, the studio is making sure that voters don’t forget about it.
Another day, another incredible casting possibility dangled in our face before being cruelly snatched away by our unjust universe. Today, it’s Beauty and the Beast. The role: Gaston. The star: Idris Elba.
This November, the princesses from Arendelle and their little snowman friend will return to theaters in a new animated short playing in front of Pixar’s Coco. Olaf’s Frozen Adventure will follow the quirky beach-loving snowman as he helps his friends Elsa and Anna celebrate the holiday season in Arendelle since the princesses reunited. Frozen has been such a smash success for Disney that it’s considered its own brand within the Disney Princesses world, and with the release of Olaf’s Frozen Adventure in November, Hasbro intends to make sure your kids have plenty of newly costumed Elsas, Annas, Olafs, and Kristoffs.
There’s no easy way to say this, but if you saw Beauty and the Beast in theaters, you were ROBBED. All week long Disney has been dropping additional content from the hit live-action remake online to promote the upcoming Blu-ray release, including some pretty darn cute behind-the-scenes footage. But there is nothing cute about the latest clip, in which director Bill Condon reveals a scene that was unjustly deleted from the film. That sneaky dude has been holding out on us.
