Tale as old as time, true as it can be.” It is the well-known classic old tale between a pair of star-crossed lovers, who met and eventually grew the seed of love in their hearts.

Beauty And The Beast” (美女與野獸) is the Mandarin theme song of the upcoming Disney movie “Beauty And The Beast”, and is a duet song performed by Hebe Tian (田馥甄) and Chinese actor and singer Boran Jing (井柏然). Using the same tune as the original Disney song “Beauty And The Beast” composed by Alan Menken, and though without having the powerful voices of Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson, Hebe and Boran have sung their own version of the love song with delicate yet resolute voices.

The lyrics of the song are written by the famous lyricist Keith Chan (陳少琪), and describe two people, who no one thought would and should get together, overcame all obstacles with the power of love. In the Mandarin theme song, the line “love is growing” (愛在蔓延中) has replaced the classic line “beauty and the beast” from the original soundtrack, which strongly describes the couple's uncontrollable feeling of love as it grows overtime.

The lyrics of the song are befitting to the storyline of the movie, as Belle, the female protagonist of the film, fell in love with a prince who turned into a menacing beast. This is shown in the music video, where snippets of the movie were interwoven with Hebe and Boran, who seemed to be waiting for each other on the snowy mountain. They then found each other as led by the petals of the rose, which signifies love, and danced in the ballroom, similar to the iconic beautiful scene in the movie.

The movie is coming to theatres in North America on March 17. Don't miss the tale as old as time.
