Tale as Old as Time: The Art and Making of Beauty and the Beast [BOOK REVIEW]
Like A Whole New World , this retelling pretty quickly veers off from the familiar plot of both movies, reimagining characters and adding lots of new characters and plot twists. That plot point always really bothered me. I thoroughly enjoyed that aspect of the book, as I have with other Disney reimaginings. But I find myself more and more wishing that the books in this particular series stuck closer to the plots we know, adding depth and context to admittedly thin plots and, to some extent, characters, rather than creating almost completely different stories. Like A Whole New World , this is aimed at an older audience than other tie-ins tend to be. It goes dark from page one.
Each one is its own standalone novel exploring different storylines from classic Disney movies. The book is sectioned off into three parts. The first part follows Belle as she is introduced to us in the original animated feature. She meets the enchanted objects and explores the forbidden West Wing where she touches the enchanted rose, and things go wrong. There is discourse and violence in the kingdom against those who possess these magical abilities, and many magical beings are killed in the process.
