BW/DR Shorts: Beauty and the Beast
In this edition of BW/DR Shorts, we interview writer/illustrator Sarah J. Shockey about her comic adaptation of Beauty & the Beast (www.bandthebeast.wordpress.com), as well as a handful of TV, film and stage adaptations of the classic fairy tale (including Sarah’s on-air first impression of *that* publicity photo of Disney’s 2017 Lumiere & Cogsworth). What is it about fairy tales that makes them so rich for adaptation? What role does film technology play in telling a story? What precipitated the cancellation of the 1987 TV series starring Linda Hamiton and Ron Perlman?
