Usually I hate movie remakes as they never seem to live up to the original but this latest version of Beauty and the Beast has me beyond excited! If Disney remakes a classic, they do it bigger and better than the original! I adore the classic story of Belle and her prince but I can’t wait for this non animated version that is just about to hit theaters!
In honor of it, have a special treat: Beauty and the Beast Cheesecake Shooters.
