What’s Happening:

  • Kenneth Brown and Marcellus Kidd, the biggest Disney+ fans out there (toot-toot!), have dropped some deets on the animated film Beauty and the Beast.
  • Walt Disney considered adapting the tale in the 1940s but never got the chance to create it. The animation studio took on his dream when they started work on the film after the completion of The Little Mermaid.
  • Beauty and the Beast was Walt Disney Animation Studios’ 30th film, starting as a serious take on the story, before transitioning to the musical we know today.
