Gorgeous film

Walking out all I could think was "WOW!". This movie is everything the animated version was and so much more!

The live action movie follows the animated movie very closely. It has been a little bit since I saw the animated version, but I didn't notice anything missing from the original. The live action version has a few extra scenes than the animated version which adds to the backstory. I really thought these scenes were an excellent addition.

I really loved this movie and it surpassed my expectations. I was a little worried about a live action movie after always loving the original - I wasn't sure it would measure up. The music was wonderful and the new songs that have been added compliment the original soundtrack perfectly. The costumes are wonderfully colorful and bright and scenes are beautiful. Cinematography and the CGI effects were also very good and felt seamless.

There are so many things that make movies uniquely Disney and those qualities were evident in this movie too. The "Be Our Guest" scene had me flashing back to Fantasia for instance, and the overall magic of the film in all of it's beauty could really only be Disney.

I highly recommend this film.
