Did You Know? Actually, Beauty and the Beast is a traditional fairy tale written by French novelist Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve and published in 1740? As a Disney media franchise, with the success of the 1991 animated feature, Beauty and the Beast led to three follow-up films. In addition to a live-action spin-off TV series, a Disney World stage show, a Disney World restaurant, several video games and loads of merchandise. It is also the 9th longest-running musical in Broadway history, which was nominated for nine Tony Awards and won for Best Costume Design. In March of 2017, Disney released a live-action remake of the film. We sense a lot more cosplay to come.
