4. "I don't fucking get it." In response to Reply # 3
I just watched the trailer and it has 54k likes and 17k dislikes. That's ridiculous. I guess Disney should just keep making frame-by-frame remakes of their earlier shit since this isn't what people want. This is the most interested I've been in one of these remakes so far. I love the animated Mulan but that isn't why I'm so interested in this; Beauty and the Beast is one of my favorites and I still haven't seen, not do I have plans to see, the live action remake.

You don't like "Reflection?"
And on the topic of songs this is another thing that gives even more reinforcement to my "but why remake it" stance. Why would I want to hear Emma Watson signing the songs I like from Beauty and the Beast? If I want to hear the songs the original movie is still there. The instrumental arrangement of "Reflection" in this trailer sounds great and the inclusion of elements from the original legend are just the type of change that make a remake worth it to me. Not adding backstory to try to make Gaston more sympathetic or casting Kevin Hart as Mushu (because you know that's what it was going to be).
>Two, the Hong Kong thing.
I thought about the Hong Kong thing but when I watched the trailer yesterday and scanned the comments I didn't see any mention of it.
