Disney’s live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast has a lot going for it, at least on paper: It’s a new, updated version of a beloved classic. It stars the effervescent Emma Watson. And it’s rated PG. Families will flock to the thing, right?
And in truth, a lot of them will. But many Christian parents aren’t so sure anymore if they want to take the kids to this tale as old as time. Several weeks ago, director Bill Condon revealed that the film includes a “nice, exclusively gay moment.” And with that, Beauty and the Beast became less of a “must-see” and more of a “should we?” movie for many families.
Adam Holz and I talked about that difficult “should we?” question on our vodcast. Take a look and listen. (Oh, and if you want the nitty-gritty on what’s in the film itself, read the review here.)
