Some long-time fans of “Dancing With the Stars” say that they will not be watching the show’s upcoming season after the first look was released.
The show’s first season 31 promo video was released on August 11, 2022. The video features clips from animated Disney movies including “Beauty and the Beast,” “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” “The Lion King,” “The Princess and the Frog,” and more.
