A little over four months ago I watched the live-action version of Beauty and the Beast starring Emma Watson. For the most part I really enjoyed the live-action Beauty and the Beast for its beautiful cinematography and its dazzling songs and characters. Then a couple of days ago I decided to watch the classic animated version of Beauty and the Beast for the first time and I can honestly say, I was blown away.
Disney makes amazing animated films (The Lion King, Tarzan, Mulan, etc.) and Beauty and the Beast is not an exception in the slightest. I was riveted as the movie told the classic fairy tale of how Belle learned to love the cursed Beast in such an impeccable fashion.
And the songs. Oh my goodness, the songs had me singing and smiling and covered me in chills. I LOVE Disney songs for all of the above reasons and Beauty and the Beast has some rather magnificent melodies to listen to.
By the time end came around with “Beauty and the Beast” playing I was sitting in a pool of tears. I don’t know what came over me (it was probably Disney magic) but I just couldn’t hold the waterworks in. I’m a sucker for love stories and I love happy endings and so this was a double whammy. Woo, it got to my emotions hard.
My Conclusion of the Film
Beauty and the Beast has definitely entered my repertoire of favorite animated Disney films because this movie was plain beautiful from beginning to end. But after watching the animated version of this I kind of realized how incredible a job they did with the live-action version.
Luke Evans in the role of Gaston was literally perfect casting.
He looks just like him! I was quite astonished.
And it was nice to see that the live-action version really stayed true to the original format of the animated film.
All in all, I’d give this movie 5 out 5 stars and 100 out of a 100. It was simply a perfect movie and I’m so glad I’ve finally seen it. 🙂
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.
