Fans of Disney’s beloved animated classics from decades past consistently ask why the studio is bothering updating movies that everyone already loves. In the case of Beauty and the Beast, director Bill Condon recognizes that the original iteration of Beauty and the Beast was perfect, raising the question of why Disney is bothering to remake it at all. A new Beauty and the Beast featurette attempts to explain that by going behind the scenes and showing fans how they’re making this story feel familiar and new at the same time.

It seems like just about everyone loves Disney’s classic Beauty and the Beast, which means just about everyone’s got their own favorite musical number from it. Some smile at “Belle” or swoon at “Beauty and the Beast”; others are taken in by the grandeur of “Be Our Guest” or the sweetness of “Something There.” And then there are those, like me, who adore “Gaston” most of all? What can I say? He’s perfect; a pure paragon.
But that means I’ve been disappointed as trailer after trailer for the live-action remake basically ignored this big dumb brute and his big dumb musical number, in favor of showing off romantic moments between Belle and Beast or whatever. Thankfully, Gaston himself is here to save the day. During a recent appearance to promote the upcoming film, star Luke Evans unveiled the first clip of himself and Josh Gad (as LeFou) performing “Gaston.” Watch the Beauty and the Beast Gaston clip below.

When the first full theatrical trailer for Beauty and the Beast debuted, one fan was quick to take the trailer and pair it with footage from Disney’s original animated tale from 1991. There were plenty of similarities to be noticed, with some shots in the live-action remake almost exactly the same as they were in the animated adaptation. Now another fan has done the same with the most recently released theatrical trailer, and now we finally start to see more of the differences between the new adaptation and the old.

You can hear John Legend on the La La Land soundtrack, playing the kind of jazz music that Ryan Gosling’s character actively hated until it provided him with a steady paycheck. So it only seems appropriate that John Legend cashes in himself by taking on a classic Disney theme song with another chart-topping singer.
Beauty and the Beast has one of the most famous theme songs from any animated movie, and it was all over the radio back in 1991 (and even 1992) thanks to Céline Dion and Peabo Bryson. Now John Legend has been tasked with remaking it along with fellow best-selling artist Ariana Grande (who hosted Saturday Night Live nearly a year ago). Does their rendition of the classic theme song shake a stick at the original?
