Here are my thoughts on this decision:
It has been confirmed from The Hollywood Reporter that Twilight director Bill Condon will direct a live action adaptation of Disney's classic Beauty and the Beast.
With Angelina Jolie's recently released family/fantasy film Maleficent there's no surprise that Hollywood is creating a live action Beauty and the Beast. You can't blame them! It brings in some serious cash and you create a nice little fan base. In the meantime, I don't see Disney slowing down anytime soon when it comes to recreating their classics into live action movies (which isn't a bad thing).
The truth be told... I'm fine with this choice because this movie could be a very successful box office hit! No matter what the outcome is Disney's (original) Beauty and the Beast will always be around to watch.
