Anyone excited for the new Disney movie Beauty and The Beast? I had the pleasure of seeing it myself before anyone else even can! (The joy of a blogger(lol!)) My generation (the 90’s kids) loved the Disney Classics so I’ve seen most and loved all of them! For me personally Beauty and the Beast is still one of my favorite movies from the Disney collections. I would recommend this new movie to all the Disney lovers out there!
The movie is a lot like the classic, but also modern; have I lost you yet? lol! Emma Watson stars as Belle and Dan Stevens as the Beast in Disney’s BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, a live-action adaptation of the studio’s animated classic directed by Bill Condon. With the classic you learn that Bell is a book worm and the town folks find her as a “funny girl” as the beginning number (first song) how the town folks see Bell, and how Geston (the towns hunter; but in the new film he’s a captain as well) is in love with her for her looks, but not for her brains. Bell is shown as an independent strong woman (who is and inventor instead of her father; even though he is one himself but more of an Artistic inventor) who as everyone else sees her as weird for not being “normal”. With Bell being intelligent (just like the classic) she finds ways to do things to make life simple and easy so she can learn to read and even try’s teaching a young girl to read and that wants okay to the others. Some things were different but also made me understand the story line even more. With all the ‘imperfections’ bell did such and not having her hair perfect or even her dress was up showing off her under clothing, which I felt brought more of the character out and understood her even more (she doesn’t care what anyone thinks about her).
But we can’t forget about the love story right? We all know that Bell and The Beast fall in love at the end, but even with the classic guide line, their are things that are even different. First the graphics through the entire movie are hands down breath taking. With the Beast not only does he look realistic but they even show his feelings even more then the original, but also similar like the classic. You first see how he is this rich selfish prince who didn’t care about anyone, he judged people just like the villagers judge Bell but once he’s turned into the Beast all of that changed and once he meets Bell it changes even more. You see how he became the way he did (monkey see, monkey do right?).
Now I hope I didn’t give to many spoilers, but I do believe, if you love Disney movies then you will love this new film. But don’t take my word for it, see for yourself!
