Disney’s live-action remake of one of the most perfect animated films of all time will open tomorrow and I can’t decide if I like that or not.
I’m afraid it’ll be too neatly a shot-for-shot remake and will therefore come off wooden and pointless. On the other hand, if they change too much, it could ruin something great. I can’t wait to see it, but I’m more than a little apprehensive.
