2017 Beauty and the Beast (Movie Review)

When I heard that Disney was doing a live-action Beauty and the Beast movie, I was super excited. Disney did such a beautiful job with Live action Cinderella. I knew this one would be good too but honestly, better.I got to see an eight-minute sneak peek of Beauty and The Beast at Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World it was at that moment I knew that this was my must see movie this year and that my autistic 6-year-old will be watching this one over and over.  When I was invited to see the Movie early I could only jump with joy and excitement and all but count down the days. The most beautiful Disney film I’ve ever seen! The costumes.AMAZING The dancing. AMAZING The music AMAZING.This movie will take your breath away. You will laugh, cry and the colors in this movie are stunning, you will smile with joy as you endure this adventure with Belle and feel as though your taking it with her. The colors in this movie are stunning the feelings they will make you have are heart warming.

Oh, the music. The favorite traditional Beauty and the Beast songs were there, but there were additional new songs added in as well. I will definitely be purchasing the soundtrack for this movie. It will be on repeat in the car for a long time to come.

Visual effects were amazing. The characters of Cogsworth, Lumiere,& Mrs. Potts were brought to life in a way that was real-life believable. I wish I lived in an enchanted castle.

I don’t want to tell you too much. I want you to experience the beauty and magic for yourself. Run to the Theaters on March 17th You will not be disappointed! It’s a tale as old as time.

Official Movie Synopsis:

Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” is a live-action re-telling of the studio’s animated classic which refashions the classic characters from the tale as old as time for a contemporary audience, staying true to the original music while updating the score with several new songs. “Beauty and the Beast” is the fantastic journey of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a beast in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the Beast’s hideous exterior and realize the kind heart and soul of the true Prince within.

The film stars: Emma Watson as Belle; Dan Stevens as the Beast; Luke Evans as Gaston, the handsome, but shallow villager who woos Belle; Oscar® winner Kevin Kline as Maurice, Belle’s eccentric, but lovable father; Josh Gad as Lefou, Gaston’s long-suffering aide-de-camp; Golden Globe® nominee Ewan McGregor as Lumiere, the candelabra; Oscar nominee Stanley Tucci as Maestro Cadenza, the harpsichord; Oscar nominee Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, the mantel clock; and two-time Academy Award® winner Emma Thompson as the teapot, Mrs. Potts.

Directed by Oscar® winner Bill Condon based on the 1991 animated film, “Beauty and the Beast” is produced by Mandeville Films’ David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman with eight-time Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken, who won two Academy Awards® (Best Original Score and Best Song) for the1991 animated film, providing the score, which will include new recordings of the original songs written by Menken and Howard Ashman, as well as several new songs written by Menken and three-time Oscar winner Tim Rice. “Beauty and the Beast” will be released in U.S. theaters on March 17, 2017.
