7 Classic Beauty and the Beast Moments We Can’t WAIT to See in the Remake
Remember the feeling you got watching the Disney classic Beauty and the Beast for the first time when you were young? With the live-action retelling slated to be released in March 2017, not only do a whole new generation of people get to experience that, but you’ll get to all over again too.
With what we’ve seen so far — from the above teaser to the most recent photos of Emma Watson in full costume as Belle — the remake will not only do the original justice, but bring a whole new fantastical element to it. Here are some of our favorite scenes that we can’t wait to see take place in the Beast’s new-old castle and beyond.
1. When Beast gives Belle the library. Not least of all because this room is literally a dream and our fellow bookworm hearts can’t wait to see the latest magnificent IRL portrayal of it (let’s face it, it would make a killer selfie backdrop). And, of course, this bad boy was gifted to Belle at Lumière’s suggestion (WELL PLAYED), and showed Beast’s sweet side. Emma Watson is totally gonna nab some upcoming book club picks from set, isn’t she? (Image via GIPHY)
2. Belle goes into the West Wing. Dark, suspenseful, perfectly scored — and, of course, the enchanted rose. The Beast’s castle contains so many wonders, and this scene is one of the most memorable. (Image via GIPHY)
3. There’s something there… You know that feeling. When you realize you’re in love with someone and it catches you off guard. Plus, romantic snowball fight. (Image via GIPHY)
4. Be our guest! Again with the whimsy of Beast’s castle! One of the all-time greats, the dinner scene in the remake is going to look unbelievable. (Image via GIPHY)

Need we say more? We’ve already gotten a glimpse of Emma Watson as Belle in
and we can. not. even. (Image
6. The Beast’s transformation. Look, the original reason given for wanting to remake this classic was having access to new technology. And we can’t think of a better scene to employ some breathtaking effects than when Beast transforms back into a human. (Image via GIPHY)
7. The curse is broken. Is this the best kiss in Disney movie history? Can it come anywhere close to the original? We’ve only got to wait six more months to find out. (Image via GIPHY)

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
