A fantastic family movie, filled with singing, dancing, romance, humour and tears. My wife and I took our 2 daughters to see it at the cinema and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. Our daughters have watched the original Disney animated version hundreds of times and have always loved it. This was the ideal film for their first cinema experience. They even dressed for the part with princess outfits.
Emma Watson plays Belle, her acting is very good, and so is her singing voice. Dan Stevens plays an excellent Beast. My favourite character was LeFou, played by Josh Gad, a very funny and silly character. LeFou has been given a more prominent role in this movie when compared to the original.
The movie was really enjoyable from start to finish, it wasn’t until we left the cinema, that I realised the movie was well over 2 hours long. The screenwriter and director have done a really good job. The attention to detail is fantastic, filling in all the details of Belle’s mother, along with the childhoods of Belle and the Beast, giving context and a more personal insight into their character traits as adults. These were all unanswered questions I had from the original animated version.
All the original songs are included along with three new ones.
A must watch for all Disney fans and families with little princesses in!
