Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast opens almost everywhere next week, but well, they can go ahead and cancel it and put it on the shelf to collect dust. Because Doug The Pug beat them to the punch and put out a live-action Beauty and the Beast that is a million times more magical and is filled with some real dramatic acting!!
Last year, Doug The Pug had Daniel Day-Lewis questioning his existence when the thespian pooch played all the roles in a one-pug remake of Stranger Things called Stranger Pugs. Doug is back with an all-pug version of BatB called Beauty and the Pug and it rivals Disney’s version in every single way from the exquisite costumes to the opulent props to the raw emotion that pours out of the pug actors. Yes, Belle sort of looks like Tori Spelling as a bootleg Scarlett O’Hara, but she’s still giving it more than Emma Watson ever could!
That melancholy look in their eyes tells us that although happiness is filling their hearts over spending an enchanting evening together, they know that happy feeling is fleeting since the odds are against them. That’s acting! Or maybe that melancholy look is from the pugs thinking to themselves, “Why the fuck does my human keep putting me in these dumbass outfits?” Yeah, that’s probably it. But well, it could’ve been worse. They could’ve made those pugs do La La Land instead. Oh shit, I’m giving them ideas.
