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 (Dan Stevens), can be freed only by true love. What may be his only opportunity arrives when he meets Belle (Emma Watson), the only human girl to ever visit the castle since it was enchanted.
Dan Stevens' favorite moment in the movie is when he roars at the wolves and scares them off. See more »
Belle's position walking up the stairs and grabbing snow to make a snowball changes back and forth. See more »
Once upon a time, in the hidden heart of France, a handsome young prince lived in a beautiful castle. Although he had everything his heart desired, the prince was selfish and unkind.
Master, it's time.
He taxed the village to fill his castle with the most beautiful objects, and his parties with the most beautiful people.

In the closing credits, the film title and crew credits come with a French subtitle to homage the French origins of the fairytale. See more »
The film's IMAX release presented the film open-matte, at an aspect ratio of 1.90:1, meaning there was more picture information visible in the top and bottom of the frame than in normal theaters and on home video. See more »
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.
