Beauty and the Beast
I have seen the new Beauty and the Beast twice in the last 10 days. Once as a girls night, and once with my princess who turned three. We dressed her up as Belle and went to the movies and it was pretty much the cutest thing I’ve ever seen.
I loved the movie. The first time I saw it, I’m not going to lie, I teared up a bit. The Disney animated original has always been one of my favorites. I grew up watching it. I wanted to be Belle and have her library. And wear her yellow ball gown. So watching the live action version was like a walk down nostalgia lane.
I loved the music. There are a few new songs and they are beautiful. Also, Dan Stevens (the Beast) has a great voice. And, in my opinion, Emma Watson does really well also. I listen to the sound track all day long right now. (Rotated with La La Land, of course.)
I loved the way Cogsworth, Lumiere, Mrs. Potts, the Wardrobe, and the rest were brought to life.
Lastly, I loved the little lines of background that we didn’t get in the original. Things like Gaston being in the war and possibly having anger issues due to it. Or lines about Belle’s mother. Or that The Beast was raised by a horrid father who turned him selfish.
Have you seen the movie? What was your favorite part?
So, my review? Go see the movie!
