As avid Disney fan, I welcome new additions into the Disney family with open arms. This live action remake of the classic Beauty and the Beast story is a promising film. Belle is one of my top four Disney princesses and growing up all I wish for was a library like hers and the yellow gown she wears during her happy ending. This film is set to come out Friday March 17.

The stars of this remake are Emma Watson who is portraying Belle and Dan Stevens who is playing the Beast. Emma Watson, most known for her starring role in Harry Potter, is a favorite actress of mine. Her acting capabilities shine through each character she plays and I see Belle as a perfect fit for her. Not only can she act, but she can sing and dance as well according to trailers.

I have high hopes for the visual display of this movie. The original animated version was simple, yet artistic at the same time. I do enjoy the earlier works of Walt Disney, where he utilized traditional animation techniques. However, if done correctly, computer animations and newer techniques enhance the film. There will be more production attention such as dancing and special effects given to the beloved Be Our Guest scene. Bill Condon, the director capitalized on this to bring Lumière, Mrs. Pots, the Beast and other castle servants to life. Viewers will also find out what happens to Belle's mother and how the Beast grew up as a selfish prince. I believe this will show the motives and emotion behind these supporting characters who may have not received enough attention in previous showings.

The film is predicted to bring in $150 million during the opening weekend alone. This means it is already the quickest selling family film in history, outpacing previous record holders. Perhaps the reason why this movie enthralls so many Disney fans, is the classic fairy tale story line of a heroine who stands up for what she believes in. Belle is a strong female role model for its viewers, as she accepts the Beast for who the man he truly is and she never loses faith for her father. Condon affirms this in an interview saying, “What has this story always been about for 300 years? It’s about looking closer, going deeper, and accepting people for who they really are.”

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
