Disney just released a teaser trailer for their Beauty and the Beast live action film. In case you haven’t seen it, here’s a link you the video. I’ve already played it several times! I like what I’ve seen, so far. Really can’t wait to see the movie. Beauty and the Beast is my all time favorite fairy tale and I have a feeling this movie will be a good one.
Seeing the teaser trailer has me craving for a good Beauty and the Beast retelling. My favorite is still Beauty by Robin McKinley and I haven’t found another one that I’ve loved just as much. I remember enjoying Rose Daughter and Cruel Beauty when I read them but the rest of the titles I’ve read weren’t so memorable. Since I’m such a big fan of this fairy tale, I usually check out recommendations of other readers and bloggers whenever they mention a Beauty and the Beast retelling that they’ve liked. I’ve read quite a few of them and wanted to enumerate the titles before asking for recommendations. These were the ones that I’ve tried:
Aside from these titles, are there any other Beauty and the Beast retellings that you’d recommend? Would love to discover more retellings of this particular fairy tale.
