"Beauty and the Beast" which had a budget of $160 million, is the latest effort by Disney to re-create its animated classics with live action and digital effects. There is one person in particular though that is more captivated by one of Disney's other icons, that being the attractive Ariel from The Little Mermaid.

"I will sing again, as Ariel, "The Little Mermaid", (if) Disney approves that Bill Condon directs it", she captioned the image.

"It was very sweet of her (to mention me)".

More box office estimates to come... "I feel like I was so lucky in getting this crown jewel [with Beauty and the Beast], but I'll go see her in Little Mermaid, absolutely".

"Beauty and the Beast". She said "If they made a live-action Little Mermaid, I'd want to be Ursula". Luke Evans whilst not as bulky and muscular as Gaston in the animated film, still manages to capture the amusing yet arrogant villain that we all love to hate and you can tell he's having a lot of fun with the role. "If there's a hat, I'll catapult my name into it however I possibly can". The new songs that we are treated to manage to fit in beautifully with the already beloved soundtrack such as the opening song "Aria" performed by the wonderful Audra McDonald before the curse takes place, "Days in the Sun" which tells us about Beast's parents, and "Evermore" a handsome ballad sung by Beast as he laments over letting Belle go. Despite her fears, Belle befriends with the beast and learns to look to beyond his disgusting exterior and realize the kind heart and soul of the true Prince within.

"Beauty and the Beast", which stars Emma Watson in the Belle role and Dan Stevens as the Beast, had the year's biggest Thursday preview of the year with .3 million, which added to its $64.1 million Friday earning.
