The fantastic journey of Belle, a bright and independent young woman who takes her father's place as the prisoner of a beast in his castle. As Belle befriends the castle's enchanted staff, she and the Beast slowly begin to look beyond their initial reactions to each other and see who they truly are. But back in Belle's village, her father's fears for her safety drive him to rally the villagers to free Belle from the castle-- a plan that goes awry, with dangerous consequences, when Belle's would-be suitor Gaston twists the rally into a mob and leads an attack on the castle.

Out of all the Disney remakes out there, this one has to be probably the best one for me. Emma Watson's role as Belle was so well-done, there was no other young actress I would've pictured in that role. And she has a great singing voice as well. Dan Stevens as the Beast was probably the most fledged out character in the whole movie. His solo towards the end of the film was so inspiring, I sang that song in my head over and over again. Everyone else fit their roles perfectly. And it follows the story of the original film to perfection. And the new variations of the original's songs were fun too (especially Belle). Might wanna keep the credits rolling for Celine Dion, Ariana Grande and John Legend, and Josh Groban's inspiring songs. A great Disney film for everyone who loves the original.

The second half had more to offer, probably because most of the second half had original material. I think the movie was okay for that reason. Otherwise, kindof unnecessary, some jokes and dialogue that kids wouldn't get. So basically: Beauty+Beast for those who know the original. Also just seems like it tried a bit too hard to outdo the original or for whatever reason remakes of Disney movies are attempted. Disney shouldn't make any more remakes unless they are going to take creative and original initiative.

Don't bother watching this one; just watch the original instead.

I'm not a huge fan of Disney musicals but my wife wanted to see it. I have to say, I quite enjoyed it.

God I wanted to love this movie but no ~ Emma Watson is truly a fairytale beauty but it felt forced. Watch the animated version again. kids may like it but it was not romantic at all >> are these the same songs as the original ?? i couldnt tell. It had very little life in it . Too bad should have been epic but is barely watchable.

Truly a masterpiece and my all-time favourite. Wish I had seen it in the theatre.

Though it may not quite compare to the animated original, the live-action version is lush, well cast, beautiful to look at, answers quite a few questions and plot holes that the animated version had and adds a few more tunes. Really can't go wrong!

I had no idea if I would like this remake or not since I had heard reviews from friends on both ends of the spectrum. I loved it! I was suprised how much I liked Emma Watson as Belle. I thought the special effects were spectacular. I loved the story of Belle's mother added to this remake. I thought it gave the relationship between Belle and the Beast some real foundation, which is often lacking in princess movies. The wolves always scared me as a small child and the real life version makes it even scarier. Maybe not a great choice for the younger Beauty and the Beast fans. Overall, I thought it was a great remake and can't wait til the next one!
