I have seen a few people’s requests about what they would like to see on the Blu-Ray/DVD release via tags or asks, and I would like to share some of my own wishes. Please feel free to add more!
• Deleted scenes: I have heard that 20 minutes were cut from the movie. I certainly would not mind 20 (or more) minutes more of Beauty and the Beast.
• Behind the scenes footage: It would be amazing to see how the set and filming process was before all of the special effects/CGI.
• Bloopers: There must have been some moments caught on camera. I was wondering how many times Emma had to be hit in the face with snowballs, if Dan ever fell in the stilts, Luke and Josh with their horses, any animal troubles… or maybe just classic mess-ups of lines.
• Cast and crew commentaries: While I know the cast has given many interviews leading up to the movie’s release, I would like to hear them have a discussion about the movie and their experience collectively, maybe as a group. I have yet to find interviews of Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci, Ian McKellen, Emma Thompson, and other cast members. I would also like to know about the process of filming and the CGI: the Be Our Guest number, the live action actors and challenges of filming without others… everything.
Those are some ideas I can think of right now. I would love to hear what everyone else would like to see, whether they are new ideas or add-ons (for example a specific deleted scene you know of).
had an idea once that it would be nice to tell a kind of macabre story or
make a thriller based on the idea that so many years on from high school
someone just might tap you on the shoulder and say, ‘Do you remember
me?' And if you weren’t such a nice person way back then, that could be
quite a dark experience.”
“I made a very dark story that’s not an essay on
bullying - and I’d never profess to be trying to teach anything about
bullying - but it does resonate, and I hope that out of this
darkness it forces people to ruminate on what roles they played at school and
whether they’ve changed.”
