Beauty and the Beast


Not everything is at it seems

With one of Disney's first live-animated remakes, this one was obviously hyped up. Young adults - even adults - reminiscing on their former years. As a child, I never read much of fairytales, but I did read this one. 

I remember liking the character of Belle because I loved books. She dreamt of a room towered with books, from floor to ceiling - and so did I (and honestly, still do, if anyone wants to send me some books). 

Emma Watson was the perfect actress to play the part. Not only does she already advocate for women's rights which goes hand-in-hand with the character, Gaston. Her head-strong, I-don't-need-a-man, personality makes her a good role model, and the perfect Belle. 

Dan Stevens, who plays the 'Beast,' does a great portrayal. But as a re-make, it is what you expect it to be. His acting was spot-on and whoever did the makeup and special effects for this movie, definitely deserves an applause. 

Chip(the little teacup), is only one of the many animated characters in this film that was brought from the original Disney movie in 1991. Along with the slightly-cheesy music, which I am sure the kids loved - especially the dinner scene, this movie is a must-watch if you are a Disney fanatic, or just want to see what the hype is about. It is definitely worth watching.
