Did You Know?

When director Bill Condon first spoke to Disney about adapting Beauty and the Beast (1991), they actually weren't sure they were going to do this new version as a musical. Condon said, "With all due respect, I think you're crazy. The songs are too good. You're going to spend all this time making a huge, gorgeous live-action "Beauty and the Beast" and not do 'Be Our Guest'?" See more »

I was really looking forward to this film. Not only has Disney recently made excellent live-action versions of their animated masterpieces (Jungle Book, Cinderella), but the cast alone (Emma Watson, Ian McKellen, Kevin Kline) already seemed to make this one a sure hit. Well, not so much as it turns out.

Some of the animation is really cute, but because characters like Cogsworth (the clock), Lumière (the candelabra) and Chip (the little tea cup) now look so real, they lose a lot of their animated predecessors' charm (I can't quite explain why that is, though). The voice talent in some cases actually seems wasted. What really didn't work for me, though, is the Beast. He just never looks convincing. The eyes somehow don't look like real eyes.

I really liked Gaston, though, and the actor who played him actually gave the perhaps most energized performance of all. Kevin Kline as Belle's father has little to do but to look fatherly and old. Speaking of Belle, now that I've seen the film, I think she is miscast. I think someone like Rachel McAdams would actually have been a more lively and perhaps a bit more feisty Belle than Emma Watson.

If you love the original, you might want to give this one a pass. It's really not that good.

Beauty and the Beast is without a doubt one of Disney's finest classics. The first animated film to ever be nominated for best picture and after you see it, you could understand and agree with it's nomination. Beauty and the Beast is going to be one of those films that will always be remembered, I know that it's a movie that I will show my children one day. It has unbelievably terrific animation, a beautiful story, lovable characters, and is just over all a perfect movie. I really love this film so much, I don't think anyone couldn't fall in love with it.

Bell is just a simple girl in her town in France, she reads books constantly and her father is an inventor. They are sort of the outcasts of their town due to their "oddness". But Bell is being pursued by the town hunk, Gueston, simply because she's the one girl he cannot have. One day when her father's inventions are about to be displayed at the fair, he gets lost in the woods and stumbles across a castle and is held prisoner. Bell goes after him and comes to the castle; it turns out that her father is being held by a beast who is cursed with this hideousness unless he finds a true love before a rose he has welts. Bell trades places with her father; the house also has living objects, a candle holder, a clock, a tea pot, all who are also cursed until the curse is broken. They look at Bell as the perfect opportunity for the beast to find a true love, but he must learn to be a gentleman, but Bell brings out the best in him and it turns out that this might be a happy ending after all.

This was actually the first movie that I ever cried in, the ending was just so beautiful and heart felt, you'll have to see what I mean. The songs are just so lovely and perfect for the scenes that they are performed for. Beauty and the Beast, the song, was just one of the most touching songs ever. This films is a major recommendation for me, it's one of my favorite Disney films of all time, it's a timeless classic that is just perfect and reached a new level of great animation.
