A fantastic live action re-make of the 1991 animated feature.
Belle (Emma Watson) is an oddity among women in the village. Belle can read, and, in fact, loves to read so she can get away, in her mind, from the hum-drum village life.
And…being different, Belle despises the one man everyone else wants: Gaston (Luke Evans).
Belle’s father, Maurice (Kevin Kline) heads off one day on his annual trek expecting to be back in a day or so. But this time, Maurice gets lost and ends up in a haunted castle and is taken prisoner by the Beast (Dan Stevens) and animated household items.
We all know what happens since the 1991 animated “Beauty and the Beast” was a classic that everyone has seen. This new, live action and computer graphic (CGI) animation, is an instant classic. I think it is better than the original.
“Beauty and the Beast (2017)” is simply magical…..we will buy it and watch it a million more times. Emma Watson is perfect as Belle as are Dan Stevens, Kevin Kline, Luke Evans, and Josh Gad (as LeFou) and all the voices of the animated household items.
The music, dance routines, and cinematography are classic, wonderful, spectacular…..Wow!
