Disney's animated classic takes on a new form, with a widened mythology and an all-star cast. A young prince, imprisoned in the form of a beast, can be freed only by true love. What may be his only opportunity arrives when he meets Belle, the only human girl to ever visit the castle since it was enchanted.
Gaston's death scene has a different arrangement than it did in the 1991 animated film. In this film, he falls to his death from a footbridge which crumbles below him after fatally shooting the Beast with a pistol. In the original animated film, he fell to his death from a balcony where he fatally stabbed the Beast with a dagger. See more »

I don't know about you guys, but I was left thinking "What was the bloody point?" and came out feeling underwhelmed as everything felt weaker compared to the 1991 original. Emma Watson is not very good as Belle, and they didn't change it enough to make it stand out like The Jungle Book or Pete's Dragon remake. Disney felt really lazy here, sadly. I hope we see more effort in the future rather than just 90% the exact same movie.
