We’ve been waiting very patiently for Ariana Grande and John Legend’s Tale as Old as Time music video to be released, and now we’re pleased to say that the long and sometimes painful wait is finally over.
(It’s worth it, trust us…)
The video is just as magical as we imagined it would be, and definitely gave us chills each and every time we watched it (is 7 back to back plays too much? We didn’t think so), not to mention flashbacks of our childhood as memories of the original Beauty and Beast film came rushing back to us.
John Legend is every inch the Prince Charming, sitting handsomely at the piano, while Ariana Grande is giving us serious Disney Princess vibes in the video. Her trademark high pony is gone, and in its place is a gorgeous long mane of chocolate brown locks.
The iconic red rose is a very prominent feature of the video (we wouldn’t expect anything less) and so is the famous ballroom dance scene featuring Belle in her signature yellow gown.
We think we’ll have to watch it a few more times to see if it’s better than the original Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson version; but we’re certainly impressed with what we see so far.
Will the movie live up to our understandably very high expectations? Not long to find out…
