ABC, The CW order 'Beauty and the Beast' pilots

Your rating: None Average: 3.5 (2 votes)

American television broadcasters ABC and The CW have both ordered pilots of new series based on the traditional tale Beauty and the Beast.

The Disney-owned ABC's pilot has been described as "a fantastical re-imagining of the classic fairy tale set in a mythical, dangerous world wherein a beautiful and tough Princess discovers an unlikely connection with a mysterious beast". The CW's pilot, in the meantime, will be loosely based on the 1987 cult-classic CBS series starring Linda Hamilton and Ron Perlman.

Wow. Didn't think this would be on tv again. >.>

I'm eager to give it a chance, though afraid they'll somehow ruin the magic of the original story in some way.

Oh, come on, it's a tale as old as time, song as old as rhyme, ever just the same, ever a surprise, Beauty and the Beast.
