This movie, and The Little Mermaid, are the only live action classics I've been waiting years to be made! I can't fucking wait!
I think he looks great. It's a good blend of animal and human, especially if a young woman is supposed to fall in love with him.
They're being realistic, not everyone is John Cena or Dwayne Johnson big
Too short? That doesn't matter, Emma Watson IMO is the perfect cast for this film.
I don't mind Disney remaking these films in live action because their animation department has been kicking ass pumping out original films for years; Zootopia, Wreck-It Ralph, Tangled, Frozen, Big Hero 6, etc.
And I'm pretty sure they're trying to stick to the original Disney material as close as possible because this is a classic that is not only universally loved, but is also the first animated film to be nominated for Best Picture at the Academy Awards.
