Trivia

When Belle first meets Jean Potts, he claims he cannot remember what he had forgotten. This is a parody of Neville Longbottom who said the same thing. Neville Longbottom was a supporting character in the Harry Potter film franchise, which also starred Emma Watson. See more »

Goofs

During many dining scenes you find Belle and the Beast consuming tomato soup. Up until the late 19th century, people would not eat tomatoes because they feared that they were poisonous. See more »

Doesn't Deserve So Much Vitriol
3 October 2017 | by davidm-14See all my reviews

First and foremost, this is a movie for children. The original was a movie for children. I'm surprised at so many scathing and very negative reviews I've read here.

The sets and costumes are beautiful. The music is classic and treated with respect. It takes a very classic Disney animated film and fleshes it out with additional character development and enhanced songs. Many little Disney princesses will watch it over and over again, just like the original animated version.

No movie is perfect, but I found it charming and produced with a great deal of love.
