At first, I thought doing a live action of my favorite Disney animated film is not a good idea but this movie didn’t disappoint me at all. It is very magical.
When I heard Emma Watson turned down La La Land, I was like “What was she thinking?”, but her first appearance as Belle, Emma is Belle. Hermione Granger is gone.
Luke Evans is so effective as Gaston. You will hate him and his narcissist ways. The character was highlighted more in this movie than in the animated film.
I must admit that there are scenes that I’ve pictured on my mind that I didn’t see but the execution in the film was entertaining.
There are just some things better left untouched, just like the theme song. The original version is way better than the version of Ari and John Legend but yeah, it’s 2017, so giving it an updated beat is alright, it’s not bad either. The songs will surely bring you back to your childhood days.
