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.
This movie is a live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast (1991), but draws elements from other versions of the tale. The concept of the household objects slowly losing their mobility, comes from the stage musical. As in the original fairy tale, Belle's father is caught by the Beast when he attempts to take a rose for his daughter, instead of Beast accusing him of trespassing. This, in turn, leads to Belle's offer to trade places with her father, as it was she who asked him to bring her a rose. The Beast's look, and much of the Castle's decorations, resemble those in Beauty and the Beast (1946). See more »

I am not a fan of musicals but I went to watch this one out of nostalgia. I like the fact that they kept the original songs. Unlike a LOT of people in here, I did not mind the autotune because I didn't want to hear the voices of the actors if they were bad. Now people will complain about choosing a different cast then. The cast was final, end of story, get over it. Also unlike a lot of people in here I am really glad they did not change the story from the original. Since it is a remake I don't expect a whole new story that would totally ruin the original. Besides, with the money Disney has made, a 2nd one is definitely coming, you'll get your different story. The visuals were OK but could have been better especially Belle's village.
