MOVIE PICK: Disney reimagines classic "Beauty and the Beast"

Mike's Movie Pick

Disney looks to score big with another remake of a classic tale. "Beauty and the Beast" returns to the big screen this weekend but, this time, the musical film is live-action mixed with CGI instead of animated. Emma Watson and Dan Stevens star in the title roles.

Disney hopes to keep riding its animation to live-action wagon straight to the bank. "Alice in Wonderland" (2010), "Cinderella" (2015) and "The Jungle Book" (2016), were all huge box office successes. The trend should continue with "Beauty and the Beast" with "Mulan," "Aladdin" and "The Lion King" all on-deck.

"Beauty and the Beast" (Rated PG-13)
