Beauty and the Beast

Beauty and the Beast ★★½

I was hoping this movie would answer the big question: Why remake this? (Other than making money and rehashing old things, which has been Disney's strategy for decades now)

I was hoping this movie would be self-explanatory, and I guess it is. There is no answer to my question. The machine will keep feeding itself. Screenplay, tone, pacing, characters, basic continuity editing, quality effects work... that's all incidental.
