So it is sort of arduous to say if including new materials will assist or damage the story. One facet which may be expanded, which was proven in montage throughout the unique, is Belle and Beast’s burgeoning romance. And it’s famous that this will probably be a barely extra mature model of the fabric, whereas nonetheless appropriate for the entire household. It’s rated PG the place the primary had a G score.
