While Disney’s animated classics have enjoyed enduring success, their live-action remakes haven’t always replicated the same magic. However, Emma Watson’s ‘Beauty and the Beast’ defied the odds by grossing an impressive $1.2 billion at the box office, despite receiving mixed reviews from critics and audiences alike.

The film’s staggering box office performance, which made it the second-highest-grossing movie of 2017, can be attributed to several factors, including the star power of Emma Watson, the nostalgic appeal of the original animated classic, and the visually stunning production values. Although the remake introduced some changes and additions to the story, such as exploring Belle’s backstory, it managed to captivate audiences worldwide.

Disney’s successful formula of reimagining its animated classics as live-action films has continued, with several upcoming projects in the pipeline. However, surpassing the phenomenal success of Emma Watson’s ‘Beauty and the Beast‘ will be an uphill battle for future Disney Princess remakes.

Two highly anticipated remakes, ‘Snow White’ and ‘Moana,’ are scheduled for release in 2025. While ‘Moana’ could potentially capture audiences’ hearts with its vibrant Polynesian culture and captivating storytelling, ‘Snow White’ has already faced controversy and lackluster reactions to its initial reveals, making it an unlikely contender to dethrone ‘Beauty and the Beast.’

Interestingly, the animated films ‘Tangled’ and ‘Frozen’ might have the best chance of matching or exceeding ‘Beauty and the Beast’s’ record if adapted into live-action movies. ‘Tangled,’ with its blend of action, drama, and fantasy, has garnered critical acclaim and commercial success, while ‘Frozen’ has become a cultural phenomenon, breaking numerous box office records.

However, it’s important to note that Anna and Elsa from ‘Frozen’ are not officially recognized as Disney Princesses, which could potentially limit their impact in the live-action realm. As of now, Emma Watson’s iconic portrayal of Belle in ‘Beauty and the Beast’ remains unbeatable, solidifying her place in Disney Princess history.

Beauty and the Beast‘ (2017) is currently available for streaming on various platforms, including Disney+, Amazon Prime Video, and Hulu.
