Yes No Maybe So - Beauty & The Beast

"Nice teaser but it going to be hard for Disney to top one of their true masterpieces of animation" - Jaragon

 "I don't have high hopes for the principals either, but the real draw is the supporting cast. I'm a NO on McGregor's accent and a YES on McKellen, so put me down as a MAYBE SO." -BD

 "CGI chandeliers? Damn, DIsney, let them build a set." -Jacob

ORIGINAL SONG

wild guesswork as we won't even know which movies have originals for quite some time

Hail Caesar
"No Dames"
Lion
"???"
Moana
"???"
Sing Street
"Drive it Like You Stole It"
Zootopia
"Try Everything"
 
Tier 2. Anything really. It's much too early to know. If you hear anything, please do share it with us on the blog as this category can be awfully hard to find info on before the long list of eligible songs is released.
