Disney’s live-action reimagining of “Beauty and the Beast” is coming very soon! And the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, California is celebrating the occasion by hosting a Festival of Fairytales in the weeks leading up to the new movie’s release.
The festival will include a number of Disney’s recent live-action adaptations / spinoffs of some of their most beloved animated classics. Check out the schedule below:
