Beauty and the Beast (2017)
Genre: Family Film, Fantasy, Musical, Disney
I have been very excited to see this new real life version of the classic Disney animation from 1991 and I know I was not the only one 🙂 ! The film did not disappoint 😀 ! The story stays mostly honest to the original story which I truly enjoyed and appreciated the nostalgic feeling you get (if you loved the first film 😛 ). The songs were great, they were pleasant to hear (even if you think the original songs were better 😛 ) and I loved the new additions which I assume are from the musical. My favourite song version in this movie was “Evermore” sang by Dan Stevens 🙂 . The costumes and set looked appealing, “Disney” and I loved that it has attempted to look traditional 18th century France! I think it did a great job with the period setting, with the dress sense of the all the characters (maybe not Belles 😛 ) and the CGI on the Beast and objects were great. The film began great and ends wonderfully. The cast is epic (Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans and Josh Gad to name a few) and all performed fabulous in this film 😀 . What I also loved about this movie was as much I as appreciate the director staying true the original, they still showed new stuff such as more in depth backgrounds. We learnt more about Belle, Beast and what would have happened to the servants at the Beast’s castle. I loved the relationship between Gaston and LeFou plus the development of LeFou was great 🙂 . His line in the mob songs was very cool. Overall, a really good real life animation that any fan of the original will enjoy and it is great for the entire family 🙂 . Enjoy 😀
I give this film 5 Stars out of 5!
