'Beauty And The Beast' review on NPR podcast

'Beauty And The Beast,' Music, And More From South By Southwest

Emma Watson plays Belle in Disney's Beauty and the Beast, a live-action remake of the 1991 animated film.

Tale as old as tiiiiiiime ...

By which, of course, I mean "tired people return from South By Southwest."

But in any event: this week's show kicks off with a discussion with our pal Katie Presley of Bitch Media about the live-action version of Disney's Beauty And The Beast. How are the candlesticks? How's the new music? And, as Katie wonders, is there adequate eroticism within the Beast, compared to the cartoon Beast who set Katie's young heart aflutter so many years ago? And what's the Les Miz-iest part of the Beast's new tune, anyway?
