After winning the Oscar for 2014’s “Big Hero 6,” producer Roy Conli was lured to what seems to be a far-flung project: a Disneynature doc, “Born in China,” which explores the life cycles of wild pandas and other native Chinese wildlife. However, he said that it was less about the animals and more about their collective capacity to communicate complex emotions and ideas.
“I’ve always loved the structure of multiple stories,” said Conli, a longtime Disney Animation executive who famously mounted the premiere of “Angels in America” at the Mark Taper Forum in 1992. “There are multiple characters that you need to fall in love with, and they will add up to one story. That was the same with this. You had five species, but you concentrated on three animal families.”

Based on the rich fantasy novel by Michael Ende, Wolfgang Peterson’s The NeverEnding Story has endured and flourished as a favorite fantasy film for more than 30 years. In the pivotal role as The Childlike Empress, Tami Stronach embodied ancient, timeless beauty in her performance. Stronach, who was only 10 years old when she was cast in the role, left acting behind to pursue a career in dance and choreography, but she’s recently begun to connect with fans of the film, and in this interview she talks about her very special experience of making the film and what she’s been up to lately.
I can’t believe I’m about to have a conversation with The Childlike Empress!
I’m not really an all-powerful, ageless being, though, right? (Laughing.)
I know, I know. It is what it is. »

As Belle runs her morning errands, the townspeople comment her “strange” and “funny” behavior; she’s clearly an outsider in her own home.

While faithful to the animated version, the new “Beauty and the Beast” is not an exact shot-by-shot remake.
Belle is still clad in blue and white, but gone is the hand basket from the 1991 version.
The lyrics are changed slightly as well.
