Beauty and the Beast Description

The story and characters you know and love come to spectacular life in the live-action adaptation of Disney’s animated classic Beauty and the Beast, a cinematic event celebrating one of the most beloved tales ever told. Experience the fantastic journey of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a Beast in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff, and learns to look beyond the Beast’s hideous exterior and realize the kind heart of the true Prince within.

Detective Catherine Chandler is a smart, no-nonsense homicide detective. When she was a teenager, she witnessed the murder of her mother at the hands of two gunmen and herself was saved by someone – or something. Years have passed and while investigating a murder, Catherine discovers a clue that leads her to Vincent Keller, who was reportedly killed in 2002. Catherine learns that Vincent is actually still alive and that it was he who saved her many years before. For mysterious reasons that have forced him to live outside of traditional society, Vincent has been in hiding for the past 10 years to guard his secret – when he is enraged, he becomes a terrifying beast, unable to control his super-strength and heightened senses.

Beauty and the Beast Movie Reviews

  • Best movie of all time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Ultimate panda lover
    💗😻💗😻💗😻💗😻💗😻💗😻💗This version is absolutely the best movie of all time, in my opinion. I will watch the trailer, then watch the movie, and then watch the movie again. It can be so sad and yet turn so happy I've had to replace my headphones because I'm crying so much. I will admit I do not know who most of these actors are so I don't know their true potential, but nevertheless I love the movie. The acting is so convincing, especially with Gaston, who even started to strike a nerve in me, too. As for the beast, well, as the movie continued I was able to see him more like the prince he is and less like the monster that everyone saw. It stands out from the original animated version in numerous ways that make it that much more enjoyable. The detail in the set is astonishing, and you really feel like you're in the movie. The cast does sing quite a bit, but any songs they sing are often well thought out and beautifully performed such as Evermore (the new song the beast sings when he frees Belle😭)and the classic Gaston song (when they sing about how perfect he is😠). Please enjoy the movie as much as I did!!!!!!!!
  • Amazing

    One of THE BEST live action Disney films
  • Days in the Sun

    Honestly, I bought this just to watch and listen to Days in the Sun MV.
  • Not the best remake.

    Sir baggy bottoms
    Just saw the movie. It had its good parts. Some of the animation was good. Emma Watson did well. Though I like her batter in Harry Potter. Her singing was a bit off. Emma Thompson sing I thought was off as well. Angela Lansbury is my favorite Mrs. Potts. Luke Evans did a good jobs as the villain. I think he had his character down and had fun. I do not recommend for young children. The old one is far better. I didn't get bored with the old one. Nothing against this one. I just thought Emma Watson was trying to hard and the other actors were as well. Since Beaty and the Beast is a great classic.
  • Fantastic

    Great music. Very entertaining.
  • Not Quite the Cartoon, But Still Good

    Kai the Movie Watcher
    Overall, it is well made and exceeded my expectations. However, I still find the cartoon version to be better. The screenplay is just better in the cartoon with a better story and richer characters. Some details are less reasonable in this film. For example, the prison cell has a large opening on one side and Belle hardly eats at dinner. The different emotions of the beast and the evilness of Gaston are also better depicted in the cartoon because of both the script and the technology (animation). There also seems to be a show of polical statement at some level in the way the script was altered from the animated version. Although it is not serious, I really hope Hollywood can leave it out of fairy tales. Still, it is a good film and this live-action version shows details not possible in the cartoon, e.g. the landscape and the final dance scene, although too many details sometimes distract. Belle played by Watson also seems to live up to the name more than her counterpart in the animation. And I really like the extended library and reading scene. I think the use of CGI is all right. To sum up, the story and rendering do not quite live up to the animated version, but Belle played by Watson outdo the animated version and it is over-all a good film.
  • Love this movie!!!

    Spindleweed Topaz
    I thought Emma was an amazing and stunning belle. I love what Disney did to re make this classic movie.
  • One of my favorites😁

    I have not seen the original yet, but I can tell this is way better! The songs are amazing, and Emma Watson is an amazing singer and actress! Belle is my favorite princess! I would reccomend this movie for children 8 and older because younger children might find it a bit scary. Love the movie!

    Well Done Disney!!! This Live Action Remake by Disney like the previous Live Action releases such as The Jungle Book, and Cinderella, makes me even more excited for their future Live Action Disney Classic remakes. I look just as much forward to showing this version to my future children as the Original Animation version that I grew up with. They retold the story in almost identical fashion, with added on dialogue to the scenes, including new scenes and songs. The music is great, and the set is stunning!
  • Their Talent = Their Historical Research... Zero

    I’m so confused how this movie got the green light. The singing is too heavily engineered, but it was probably required because none of the cast (except Gaston) can actually sing. Also, why on earth did they need to re-orchestrate the soundtrack? The original flute parts are almost non-existent and everything is now very clarinet and reed-focused. Did anyone else notice the inappropriate reference to the plague?? That was literally centuries before this plot so Belle would have to be hundreds of years old for her mother to have died in the plague. Lololol. And if this takes place in the 18th century (?) there wouldn’t be any diversity in this small rural French town far from Paris. Yes, it stinks that there wouldn’t be an ethnically rich cast of actors, but historical accuracy doesn’t always reflect what we see in our society today. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Last, but not least, the CGI was unbearable. The architectural CGI was beautiful, but the characters were impossible to believe because the texturing was not blended enough to the live action cast interacting with them, i.e. their skin was too smooth, lines were too sharp and bold, and the movement was too fluid and computerized. This film had such high potential, but it was obviously rushed and thus lacked precision.
