Storyline

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.

Trivia

During the song "How Does a Moment Last Forever", Maurice is shown making a music box that resembles his life in Paris with his wife and an infant Belle. (His art studio is also full of sketches of Belle's mother and baby Belle.) These reflect Maurice's inability to move on from his tragic past and let his daughter find true happiness. At the end of the movie, during Belle and the Prince's party (and possible wedding), Maurice is shown painting a picture of the joyous event. This reveals that he has finally continued on with his life. See more »

Goofs

During the song "Gaston" - Gaston is standing on top of the bar and shoots the ceiling causing a lot of debris to fall. The camera then immediately shows a wider shot and there is no debris on the bar, or nearby people, to be found. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Agathe: 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.
Cogsworth: Master, it's time.
Agathe: He taxed the village to fill his castle with the most beautiful objects, and his parties with the most beautiful people.

Crazy Credits

Part of the closing credits is a "curtain call" sequence that features the cast (appearing in poses) and crew (their credit with an image relating to their respective job). The sequence is framed with shots of the Beast's castle at sunset, and ends with a zoom shot of the Beast and the enchanted objects posing at the castle's entrance. See more »

Alternate Versions

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 »

I loved this film!
8 June 2017 | by michelleraeleeSee all my reviews

Very much like the cartoon! The singing was really good ... Emma Watson ... what a star! The acting was great. I was in two minds about seeing this as it's my favorite fairy story and my favorite Disney cartoon. I was in tears at the end, even though I knew the story backwards. Why didn't I give it 10 ... The thing that let it down a little for me was the make up of The Beast, I thought it was a little too scary for the film and the wolves were quite a bit nastier than the cartoon version. Young children may be scared by these things.
