The rules of reboots and remakes should be: only do it if it was bad the first time (like Battlestar Galactica), not if it was good and then you just make a pale imitation at best.
Now that that's been said...
- Time has not been kind to Beauty And The Beast’s weird central romance
- Why remake Beauty And The Beast and do nothing new with its tale as old as time?
- The "exclusively gay moment:" Mild spoilers follow for 2017’s Beauty and the Beast, which has a nearly identical plot to 1991’s Beauty and the Beast.... Disney can pat itself on its back all it wants for turning a villainous buffoon that was coded as gay in the original film into a morally ambiguous buffoon who is more obviously gay, confides in a teapot, and tries out dancing with a man.
