Just saw B&TB...

Reading the thread on Beauties possible departure we went and saw it today.

The Belle actor was one who has been there for many years and has a beautiful, beautiful voice, even if she no longer looks 16. The Gaston actor was fantastic as well! Great voice, much more funny ad libs than I'd seen before and a great stage presence!

I understand the show is long running and people do tire of things BUT the Tangled production had better be SUPERIOR in order to replace Beauty, which is a Disney classic. Tangled, though it was good is not destined to even approach classic status.

This doesn't mean I won't be rooting for Tangled to be great, I will be, but Disney had better not screw the pooch on this or I'll really be ticked!

I didn't know they were making a Tangled production! I've truthfully never seen Beauty and the Beast at HWS... I wish I have, especially considering it's supposed to be leaving... do you have any idea when it's stopping and being replaced?

I've been in love with Tangled ever since first seeing it in theatres. I've always loved the movie Beauty and the Beast as well. How long has the show been at HWS? I feel like it's been at least a decade.

Has it actually been confirmed that Tangled is replacing B&TB?
It does make the most sense out of all the rumors floating around... Since Belle will have her own area in New Fantasyland!

I doubt it's been confirmed but the big thread on these pages got me worried (especially all the support for Tangled).

Certainly Aladdin would be great, that is one of classics and is FANTATIC at DCA. The problem is replacing the older classics with the new stuff, which aren't musically very great nor are the films destined for classic status, IMO.

All this business about a Tangled musical -- seems... "forced" -- the film didn't have the reception of Aladdin, BATB, Lion King etc.

Gut feeling.. could be wrong, maybe it'll be amazing.. but.. probably not for this guy.

Actually Tangled did quite well at the box office. Also did well with merchandise

Tangled took in just 200 million domestically.. and 590 million globally on a budget of 290 million.. That's no blockbuster. (Box Office Mojo #'s) In fact, failure to make the movie's budget back at US box office is considered .. *generally speaking* to be bad.

Aladdin ONLY took in 504 million... on a budget of 28 million.

And I liked Tangled, I watched Tangled, Tangled was fun. Cute even.

Butttt,... Tangled was no Aladdin. It just wasn't.

And despite having seen the movie three times, I couldn't name one of the songs. Or hum it.

I get it.. for some kids, Tangled will be those early 90 movies, but I don't feel it worthy of an attraction. We'll see I guess. Maybe I'll love it on stage.

Like you, I liked Tangled too...But ther is a huge difference between "liked" and a classic.

She's got a DREAM (She's got a DREAM) to see the Golden Lanterns Gleam! DREAM!

I love that song!

In fact, when I stepped out of our stateroom on our September cruise they were playing this song throughout the ship and it really made my day! I hummed the song all day long!

BUT - on the other hand, my wife and I will just be driving along and burst into a chorus of Be Our Guest!

So, to be fair - the music from Tangled was good - BUT Beauty and the Beast was one of the best soundtracks ever!
