Disney babies rejoice! I know I’m not the only one here who is a fan of the classic Disney animated films and even if you’re not, you definitely owe it to yourself to watch this live action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast starring none other than the lovely Emma Watson, the dashing Luke Evans, and a star studded cast that includes Ewan McGregor, Josh Gad, Dan Stevens, Ian McKellen, and much more! Take time out with the family this weekend and enjoy the magical experience that only a Disney film can provide, the young ones are sure to enjoy this retelling of the animated original while the older members can take their trip down memory lane.
Beauty and the Beast was released during a time greatly considered as a golden age in animated movies, along with The Little Mermaid, The Lion King and Aladdin, among others, and was immediately hailed as a cinematic masterpiece. The film is an unforgettable tale of love and friendship that transports readers to a magical fairy tale world where love conquers all. It was the first animated feature to receive an Academy Award nomination for best picture and won two Oscars (best original score and best song), three Golden Globes and four Grammy Awards, among a multitude of other awards. Talk about being ground breaking AND award winning at the same time!
We’ve seen the film and it was definitely one for the books! Emma Watson was absolutely perfect as Belle and there’s no better Gaston than Luke Evans as it looked like he was born to play that role! The casting for this film is top notch and the musical score just sends shivers down your spine, from the opening sequence “Belle” to the enchanting ballroom dance, every minute of the 2 hour film is pure magic. While there may be some parts of the movie that feel unnecessary and some acting bits that don’t quite make the cut, don’t let this distract you from the fact that this film is a great trip down memory lane if you’ve watched the original and if you haven’t, something that is still definitely worth the watch.
